Now we're trying to negotiate with the hotel to reduce our minimum tables of 20. I realise from the forum that there was a couple who signed up the same ballroom with minimum tables of 16 at last week's wedding show!
My bf's tables have fallen from 10 to 6 now. He's over-confident sometimes LOL. My side can still meet my estimated target of 10.
SotongLet: Thanks for compiling our data and making it easier to compare. Was seriously too lazy to dig up the thing, and feels like such a hassle to update it! Anyway, why you say Col 3:12-15 given to you, you don't know whether to laugh or cry? I think quite nice mah. It's customised, you scared the pastor is implying you all complain a lot ah...Hehhh...Anyway, rather than 1 Cor 13 all the time!
And the threads are moving so fast!!trying to catch up with the topics..
I had a wonderful day on 11 Nov! It was just the perfect day ever! The weather was great and everything went on very smoothly.
The wedding banquet was such a success as almost all out guests turned up and we even had to open another reserved table. I think our guests brought their friends/relatives along. Also, our friends commented that our dinner banquet was one of the most well prepared one they ever attended. Almost everyone reached before 8pm and dinner started promptly and ended promptly too (think before 1030pm.. didn't wear watch though, not sure exact time). We saw some of hubby's friends/colleagues enjoying & toasting to themselves, almost in their own world and didn't want to leave. We were really happy seeing our guests enjoy themselves too. =P
I was pretty nervous on stage when i needed to give the thank-you speech... I didn't even look at the script, too nervous, and luckily, managed to say something..mainly thanked parents, helpers, relatives, friends, etc..My hubby was so cute, told the guests his ang moh not good, can speak hokkien or not.. then his colleagues shouted 'speak teo chew!'... Our guests were very spontaneous too.. really had a wonderful night. hee..
And we even managed to make some money!!! can cover our honeymoon hee =P
So BTBS: relax and enjoy yourselves on your BIG Day! Your helpers will be there to guide you! Just be a princess and enjoy the day!
The day was a hectic one too..
4am woke up
before 5am MUA arrived
gatecrashing at 6plus
before 8am must reach hubby' s house for tea ceremony
after tea ceremony, went T3 take photos..
then went hubby's place change to kua
then went grandma's house (upon request by grandma) to pray ancestors
went back home for tea ceremony
ended at about 2pm!
Then somemore got to go back hubby's place return one basket (got oranges etc)..
After that rushed to hotel!
But the gatecrash was quite overwhelming cos hubby and bros drove off when asked to do some tekan stuff. .i stayed 1st floor..so easy to go off...all of us panicked! when met my hubby, i asked him where they went.. they drove one round and came back. Those naughty boys!
Stay: Thanks for your wishes earlier on! I had a great time! Promised to share my experiences at nail bar. The service is quite good and they provide OSIM massage chairs. People there are quite friendly and the lady staff told me they used to specialise in bridal mani/pedi. But do remember to check out the price first =)Can give it a try!
Jolene: Thanks for recommending nail bar! Told the lady you recommended.. She said this month got many brides go her place do nails..That day got 7 BTBs having appointment at nail bar. =)
Pinky81: Yes, my Jiemeis are really sweet.. They initially wanted to stay over but ended up one of the Jm's brothers wanted to drive her and those JMs staying nearby to my place in the morning. so eventually, didn't stay over..
All BTBs, All the best ya! I am already missing my AD.. had so much fun catching up and seeing everyone gather together.. =D
yeah, we e-filed already.. going down to ROM on 1st Dec to submit the docs... mine is also going to be a 3-in-1 day on 5th Dec.. havin customary, solemnization & banquet all on the same day.. thereafter, flying off for honeymoon on 8th Dec..
<font color="ff6000">haa, tt time u mentioned abt "HW's ALL night life?" ma,haa, so ambiguous sial...duNo wat u tryin to ask wor...haaa...night life, cant club, drink, etc..then do wat le?? watch Soccer? LOL!
No la, i aint gt any new Bf, as if i cOuld?! i meant my guy aint VIrgin when we did it la, sianz, he lost it maybe ??? doesnt matter, and the ex gf who tt time called him was his 1st Screw (so crude huh?)...i m sorry la but it occasionally gets in my nerves when the thot of nt having a "V" guy tt i had had...
in my sec sch days, i did met a few Virgins guys but we never did tt lo, cuz my parents always warn me to GUARD the "precious", until.... =X
i once almost lose it to one of my most loved and missed ex-bf (who already had multiple partners before since 15) but he knew i was a "v" (tt time i was 19 and he was 21)and thus decided to dun 'harm' me and respected me...wow, tt was really sweet n impressed me greatly...
haa, anyway, does it really matter? i juz kinda envy those who had their 1st time tgh...cuz i felt the experience will b more intense, curious and maybe more passionate? hee...experienced ones may makes you feel gd as they might knew where the 'g spots' are but they can be demanding also...haaa...from wat i understand la frm some pals...most of their men lose it in teens, earliest as at 14!! liew...can b v demanding la, so sianz...LOL
So hws ur night life so far? hee..Shhhh... =D
"kamasutra" may helps...i haven really go n see lo...hee..heard there are really diff positions...LOL</font>

rach>I only did it twice. Once at spa haven, once at strip. Don't mind trying again cos I do feel cleaner without all the hair. Maybe next outing, we can do a mass brazilian strip at strip. I heard more people go, can take a package so works out cheaper for all.
Just a quick info. FOR GDL cake distributing. Some families pratcise cake distributing on both sides (GUY & GER) some only ger side. Normally to save time the guy will get his parent n go distributing while the girl will do the same to her relatives. 1 advise plan your route early and let your relative know when u are coming. MY relative sent me on wild goose chase from east coast to hougang when he appear to be at work and not at home as a result waste alot of gasoline. HOwever happy distributing the cake..
think your mama way of GDL sound fun .. it not quiet but bustling with people sharing your joy that really good..
happiness>strip is not bad lah. I found it cleaner than spa haven. Confirmed no double dipping cos I saw her throw away all the ice-cream sticks. With spa haven, was v surprised to see her redip the stick. Also didn't feel as pain cos they use hard wax on the more sensitve parts unlike spa haven that uses soft wax everywhere. But spa haven is cheaper.
I told my hotel coordinator that we have problem hitting the 20 min tables etc. I also realised from forum that there were a few couples who managed to book the same ballroom at minimum 16 tables at the recent wedding showcase on 2nd August 2008.
I asked my hotel if there was any room for negotiation on lowering the minimum tables for our banquet? She gave a straight NO without any room of negotiation to exchange the 4 unused tables for 3K+ vouchers or what.
Today I'm feeling pissed for the 1st time in this whole year of wedding preparation! LOL
I don't mind her rejecting my request but she needs not be so rude.
charma97: u shld RSVP them wor.. maybe u just email then and 'remind' them of ur wedding date and venue casually...
tis is wat i do lah... coz same same, i paiseh to ask oso, somemore big boss and boss coming oso And my colleagues will response to me lor via email oso ^^ Like tt easier to reject u oso if they last min cannot come!
HappyMrsKOH!!! So happy for u!!!!!!!!!! Hahaha good thing u enjoy the service at nailbars!! The young young perm hair one is the lady boss lor... 20yrs old only!!! kekeke... i gg back maybe next wk to take out my nails keke they still in sooooo good shape tt i bu she de take out keke... but my nails grown liao so abit gao-way...
hee yaya all BTBs, have faith and trust ur helpers and jus be ur princess for the day!!!!!
HappymrsKoh: ur HB soo cute de lor!!! Its good when the guests are spontaneous when my HB shouted thank you to his 3 tables of colleagues and bosses, they all shouted back also! I like the spirit lor!!!
Tt time our Yum Seng was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO long tt we ourselves almost out of breath liao but the brothers still yum yum yum away hahaha...
All BTBs, look forward to ur BIG Day and have fun!!!
keke i oso missing my AD already wahhhhhh.. where are my pictures!!!
ohh, i gg to post the bridal album layout onto my multiply liao almost forgot
happiness>is it? the hard wax Strip used on my more intimate parts don't need the cloth to pull out. She use her hand can le. The girl who did it for me told me that's how you tell the diff between hard wax and soft wax. Soft wax need cloth, hard wax don't need. N I remember at Spa Haven they used cloth...
But I'm a noob lah. Maybe she tell me wrong info oso I donno. What's the gal's name at Spa Haven? Maybe the next time I feel rich, I go try again with her.
summer_ice!! I'm going down to ROM on 1st Dec also. What is the time slot given to you? Mine is 10am - 11am. I'm also doing everything in one day except for 'hui niang jia' and the honeymoon. Already had a pre-honeymoon in June liao haha
Jasch - wow! you got Dawn to be your AD PG! We've asked but her charges steep for us.
YL < yup... i have been doing my brazilian with them for 2 yrs...and all the while it has been hard wax... no cloth strip.... the wax will be applied onto the area of removal... then the wax will harden and then they will proceed to strip off... yes no cloth strip.... I always look for this gal, Irene... she's very fast...
seeing u gals recommending highly of Nail bar,i have just made an online booking with them.
Jolene,just realised that u mentioned they dont do nail extension cos my nails are terribly short since young frm excessive plucking..=) Is there a minimum length before one can stick on fake nails?
