hmm, nubra cant give much support IMO
The seamless is good, invisible under tight tees.
You collecting your gowns so soon ya? We going to collect ours this fri. Just now PJ called me to ask for the BQ seatings... geez... now i also pushing on my fh in full force liao, kept reminding him the coordination with all vendors is his babies liao.

insist your fh to appoint someone. Tat's wat i did :p When he said 'they' will do recep i will kept probing 'who? who are they?' He doesnt need to tell you immediately but at least in the next couple of days.

spoiltbabe>hmm, I find my superpadded is ok leh. does give some support. But of cos support is not as good as those with bra straps. Just came back from collecting my WG and EG. A bit tired now and donno how to pack the gowns off to Taiwan with us.

Fanny>hmm, what I did was have a brief discussion of the itinerary with my FH's side. Then I ask questions like who will recognise their side's guests? Cos the ones I appoint can only recognise my sides's. Then I ask if their side can come out certain people for tasks like recep lor.


New Member

New Member
Nec>my friend n I thought of learning exotic dance! But wait here, wait there, until now, still never registered. :p

Just collected my WG and EG. So tired now. But at least they are safe in the home now. :p They added some bling to the EG. Maybe when free, take photo.

New Member

jo_vin, Four Seasons' price is quite ok .. it starts from $11 per pax


New Member
hey jo_vin, i took the summer set.. $13 per pax

Chimes, angeli catering, neo gardens and four seasons are my 1st 3 choice.. :D but took four seasons in the end :D


New Member

Btw, Lost, i heard Four Season's portion very small. So rem to order for ya?


New Member
1. bao all the ang baos.
2. Settled my sitting arrangement, except for FFIL's guests which is done, just need to type out neatly

Yet to do:

1. finalise all banquet details with coordinator (tmr)
2. Send all the run downs to helpers (tmr)
3. prepare sabo materials(Fri)
4. order fresh rose petals (tmr)
5. Print out all materials eg. seat arrangement, run down, table layout, to pass to helpers (Sat)
6. Mani Pedi (Sat)
7. Collect gown and photo album (fri)


New Member
orh...msclaire has a point, maybe cos i took ballet from young, like 5 yrs old, till abt 17 yrs, so got time to form muscles.

but really the leg muscles are impt for the high jumps and pointe shoes and ballet is all leg work, turns, leaps, blah blah....the arms just look graceful can liao. :p

oooii...so anyone wanna join any exotic dance classes or not? :p


New Member
angelina: cheongsam can not fit then alter lor
hee hee small issue ma

"older sister" dress??? don't get what it means also wor... is it a particular cuting/ style?? What color is your current cheongsam??

What's the reason for her to ask you to wear glove n veil for the western dress? she just like it or ?? Maybe talk to your FH again? Sometimes it can be just a casual remarks she make yet we take it seriously...

Just personal view that alot of things like procedure, ceremony things can follow what the parent say la... (anyway most of the time is do for them than for ourselves) but dress, deco those little things.. that is not impt(to the culture/traditional pt of view) maybe the couple can have more say... After all is our wedding ma...should give us some say.... Make special request also must have reason...should be more fair to the couple.... there is no fix rules say wedding MUST be like how .... is more like a give and take.... between familys and the couple...

annabella: http://eevee.multiply.com/journal This is a web I visit before and there is lots of template for use... maybe is useful to you ladies... MC speech also have

New Member
fionachua>haven't had my PS yet but have already collected my gowns. Realised I can't wear the nubra with my gowns as the fit is too tight. Which is a waste a I bought one just to use on the AD.

Am selling my brand new nude superpadded B though. Letting it go at $50. It'll cost about $70+ if you buy it at the pushcart in Suntec.


New Member
strawclare>wah, earthquake. wonder if I can experience one in Taiwan... How's the weather like now? Hope it'll be good when I'm there.

Dor>wah, you are well-prepared.


New Member

But my friend recommended Pine Garden - I think a variety of slices of cakes for only $8/box!!! And can get tiramisu cakes :X (my fav

Went through my discussion on GDL and AD items liao but i thk leaving it to the mothers and my HB to settle :p I look at the list i wana cry...so complicated...

New Member
cfay n fionachua>I already have a superpadded nubra that I'm using. Find it quite convenient cos its backless and strapless. Bought an extra of the same so I can use brand new bra on AD mah. Superpadded is the one side cloth material, the other side the adhesive. The silicon is more than $100 so I didn't get.

n yep, my WG and EG already has padding. As it is v fitting, I end up getting bulges if I wear my nubra with them. So decided to just go braless that day.


New Member
PolarWhite: oh~~ eevee used your friend one? or eeve is your friend? maybe ask her better to remove name and address /contact ba.. else pass ard also not nice


New Member
Polar: I also shared my frd's AD schedule too but I removed their names prior sharing.

Angelina: Yap goin to get "promoted" to MRS life liao which means can hear more ppl calling me auntie..eekkk still nt used to it.

Mrs Chiew: wow u sound like a wedding advisor wo..heheh. Alter means wat? Hmm alter the sizes or length? I found nwdays tailor &amp; altership $$ also not cheap. I brought mum to tailor a whole suit of mandarin collar top with pants. It cost $29 for the cloth &amp; $90 for the tailorship.

Bubbly: We r not fated to meet leh..didnt see u ard.

Gers check out yr letterbox..the Neo Garden distributed the booklet with the $50 discount again. For those nt yet placed their catering order for AD, can make used of the discount then. Hey I sound like one of their spokeperson..hahah


New Member
Hi Jolene

I and you are able to the same track la.
i also smsing me friend and jie mei for their surname and add etc...

i got contact u wan u got so many ppl not more than $60 i think can meet ur budget. i got if 3 and above chgs $60 lobang.

New Member
hi ladies
i am not able to make it for tomorrow's gathering as i will be working late. but for those who can make it, pls go ahead w/o me. once again..my sincere apology.


New Member
I have not booked my honeymoon either. Wanted to do so earlier, but hub says priority should be given to settle more important stuffs like GDL, his suit, guests list blah blah blah. Hope to go Eastern Europe. But to me, holiday dates are fixed by tour agencies and praying hard that the dates we want are still available when we are ready to confirm it. Keeping fingers twisted.

Oh, for catering, can try Mum's kitchen.


New Member
i brought my nubra along for gowns w/o padding....but actually most gowns have lotsa padding so it's abit redundant :p so i decided to go bra-less apart frm wearing d CS i bought....


New Member
ic ic thanks lsntyl.

Fionachua i got the same thought as you, like no support inside the gown. like no leverage right? :p


New Member
yoyo i booked AD caterer with neo garden.. got alot of feedback that their food is nice.. and i took their mini tea set... $8.80/pax.. quite cheap le.. and their min is only 15 pax... which in fact can cater up to twice the no of pple le.. so i ordered only 20 pax.. coz i got abt 30-40 pple...
