Welcome Lydia. If you ask us, think most of us will say its ok..more importantly are the parents. If they are also ok, then should be good to go..haha.. anyway, wouldn't you have to find a day with the auspicious timing in the evening?
Ling: Like you, I wan a Boy first..haha maybe because I have an elder bro.. But boy first then girl..IDEAL!
Hi blueeangel, which handphone model are you using? Nowadays, most handphone has it. Just do a google on Lunar chinese calendar, should have many hits too..
Lydia, seriously @ this kind of period where pay cut, retrenchment, etc etc etc
a lost is really unavoidable unless you got very rich guests.
We dun expect to make profit.. as long as the lost isn't too much to bear.. can be a good blessing alrdy. I had seen guests who came as a couple or very family coming in with ang bao like $50/ couple or per family or 4 or 6 lo.... L L lo.. what to do..
jean, yeap.. i perfer a cozy home too... was telling them dinner is just a day affair and after that.. no one will remember after that. and no matter how... there are bounds to be those itchy mouths to have tones of comments about it...
@ least with my cozy home.. i know its my comfort area for years to comes...
After thinking some way thru, we decided not to take up the exp hotel cos we foresee it's gg to be a big loss.. so my hb was thinking of sticking to our initial idea of holding a standing reception with corktail tables as we are doing buffet dinner. However my mum dislike the idea that guests give angbao already still have to stand throughout the dinner. But my hb feels that he wans a special wedding dinner that all will be mingling around, unlike the traditional sit-down when all is so bored.
What do you guys think?
Any body experience standing reception? How was your experience?
Lydia, actually me prefer the cocktail thingy like u BUT u c.. our parents are those traditional kind.. so end up.. we stick to a sit down dinner but i am doing it small and only close friends and relatives will be invited so that i can run around and get myself involved with my guests.
I have been to standing reception before and i enjoy it. The atmosphere is very sweet and cozy cause most of the guests are very sporting kind.... BUT if you got more those old folks and they are not sporting kind like mine... be prepare to hear some nonsense and complaints lo.
melb: Can you give me ur email address as I am unable to PM you.
PSY: You got a mail!!!!
Ling: There is a package promo when i sign and only need to top up 200 for the express morning highlights. But not too sure whether the promo is over already. Think if you interested can email or call them.
val, yeap plus the am highlight it be 1588. just called them and will be visiting them tis week. Save 1k+ lo... which we find quite worth it... and from their website can see that their VG is very experience in guiding the guests and jiemeis etc...
gaw: fullerton food isn't very impressive as well. I attended a few times dinner there... seriously won't want to WEI QU myself to fit into their requirement since i be the one paying for the stuffs etc.
