Hi gals,

Did u all went through the "Tong Shu" to select your dates for your AD? I wanted my AD to be in Oct...but i still waiting for the "Tong Shu"... cos heard from my shifu that the book will only be out in mid Sep....
 

missybrooklynn

New Member
DS>> i will still be doing in SG. so will still have my PS taken by my local BS.
Just that my FH likes beaches so we wanted to do in Bali. now im trying to find places that will look diff from SG. haaha.. cos scared all beaches look the same :p

Val>> the link is on my previous reply =)
the price of gown and freight is ard $315 cos i added 100cm train. if not is ard $200.

keropi>> most of us used bazi to determine our AD dates.
i think wait for tong shu a bit too late cos most places will be booked by then.

missy> wow... so u will hv 2 albums with different atmosphere... =)

valerene> the correct link shld be http://jvbridalgowns.blogspot.com/

keropi> u dun hv to wait for tong shu... ur master shld be able to calculate base on both ur ba zi (8 characters)... it will be more accurate... cos tong shu dates r more for reference oni... the good dates in tong shu does not mean is gd for both of u....
btw, the tong shu for 2010 was ardy out a couple of mth ago... iirc...
 

missybrooklynn

New Member
DS>> yup. i hope the albums will turn out good.
the good thing abt the bali PG is i can take back all photos at no extra costs.
happy.gif
and i wont be taking photos in sentosa for local PS liao.

hopefully the IR is up by the time we wanna take PS and we can take there w/o any charges.

val>> yup, that is the link.
she is quite prompt and efficient. so not to worry. i will update u all when my gown is here **fingers crossed** if it is nice, i might consider getting an EG from them. cos the EG from my BS are rather limited and i thought of using the MTM to do a WG with super long train. haha..
happy.gif


as for the WG that i got, i might wear it during dinner reception or in the AM if it's really nice. hee... so hiao hor?

keropi>> yup, agree with DS.
tong shu are not that "personalised" for each couple.

New Member
missy> it's norm for all brides to be hiao on their big day.... =)

i also wanna hv my ps taken at ir... heard 1 of them is opening in feb... hope i'm able to go there take a few shots in jan next yr....
 

missybrooklynn

New Member
DS>> i having sec thought abt going Bali for PS liao.
cos the more i see, the more i feel that the photos taken there look veri ermm.. old skool? i dunno if this is the right word. but good ones are veri exp. sigh..
 

ds_gerl

New Member
missy> i thot bali has got very nice beach sceneries?? or maybe it's the style of the PG??
hv u shortlisted any of them yet??
 

missybrooklynn

New Member
DS>> maybe its the location i chose. :x veri hard to describe oso. sigh..
will still go ahead but probably juz half day at the beaches. i like the beaches there. dun like the idea of shooting at the temple cos looks 'scary' to me :p

there are really good PG but veri exp. if i wanna shoot at villa/chapel, have to pay for the shoot oso. plus not cheap.
 

ds_gerl

New Member
missy> thn u shld focus more on beach shootings... maybe try to take some pics during sunset... shld be nice & romantic... =)

perhaps u got to tell the PG on wat u want & dun want...

missy > bali is very beautiful! Been there for holidays and i love it! if you wanna stay at kuta, try hard rock. it's really a very nice hotel. you will also be able to get nice shots within the hotel.
Ubud in bali is another fab place for photoshoots. you will be able to get an experience of their cultures and artistic atmosphere over there. it's in the mountains and the air is so much cooler.

Bluey> I have email David to enquire the price of the round with side diamonds ring @ 0.5 caret . Gosh the price for that ring is affordable and 'cheaper' as compared to other jewllery shop of the same specs. But actually,I have another design in mind and i show my hubby the enagement ring website. He seems to be amazed with the attractive price and the quality promised. Haha...but i have not fix apptment with David yet. But thanks for recommending

Missy> I have pass you the vg contact to ur facebook. They still have slot for ur date
happy.gif

So eager to see the gown u have order from Joanna's website. It should be nice. Muz wear and show us when u receive orh :p
Some ideas for your beach photoshoot: Maybe u wanna consider bringing some 'props' for the outdoor shoot, eg: 1)champagne and wine glass for a romantic pose amidst the sun set, with red rose petals surrounding u & ur hubby. 2) Flower petals throwing in the air (by pg's assistant)while u & hubby have a 'smooching' or lovey-dovey pose. Can visualise? Haha..juz some creative ideas which i feel that may be different from ordinary beach shoot. Agree with DS tat communication with PG is very impt. At least he can capture tat special moment and preference which you actually have in mind. So it will be good to look at other's couple beach photo to have more ideas too

Hey girls!!

Long time no "see"!! been really busy with work lately. Ok i know i'm sua gu but what does the Nubra do other than push up?? isn't the nipple tape sufficient?
 

ds_gerl

New Member
eileen> wah…. really long time no “see” u log in leh….

the nipple tape is only to cover the nipple area such that it wun be “over exposed” when wearing those gowns with thin material… I dun think it has any push up effect…
whereas for the nubra, it’s actually a push up bra w/o the straps…. in fact it’s 2 bra cup size paddings with a little hook clip in front…

ahhhhh icic..

Blueystar & All> i called david seeing so many positive comments abt him. Eh its not really cheap leh.. i'm going to reset my engagement ring to diamond encrusted band and he quoted me $850 and above. Thats like $100 - $300 more than what i've been quoted.

1. Wah Gay Goldsmith (golden landmark hotel)- S$580
2. Simon (parkmall)- S$600
3. Wing something (Alexandra) - S$650
4. Some shop at chinatown - S$600

All these shops are recommended by friends (family jeweller..or they sent their rings there).

DS_gerl: haix, i m just waiting to c when i burst my endurance level.... lol... i like my job but it's some things i am not happy abt... talk to u when we meet again.. ..

Eileen: hahaha, seems like u are jewellery expert cos got so many lobangs in this area... if u wan, u can feedback to him n c what he says abt the higher price, whether is it due to the quality or other factors... basically, i compare him with those like soo kee n leehua so find it cheaper cos those brands u r likely to pay their marketing costs. But if u r comparing him with those more like family biz type of jewellery or those neighbourhood jewellery shops, den i am not too sure but i think it's not surprising cos their biz r more of residential areas and are veterans in this line so mayb their pricings are more attractive (to fight against those SK,, LH as well). I guess how much u trust the jeweller,the chemistry and aftersales service is impt as well. I dun really dare anyhow buy diamonds cos i damn scare they will give me a lousy range without me realising... lol... ,my wild imagination.... since ur contacts r recommended, i guess shouldn't b a problem.. now we have more options should we need to get si dian jin.... thanks 4 sharing Eileen!!!

Missy Brooklyn: we r on the same boat.... *sob sob* based on my style, i will have dump letter if i had not need $$$ for the wedding.. . well on a happier note, hope u settle on ur photographer liao.. i think it's quite exciting to take a local photographer cos my friend is a Burma-ese (Myanmar) and she went back to take wedding pixs n i think it's artistically done yet different from the local style here.

I just managed to buy my PS shoes n am pleased with my buy... cheap n good just in case i spoilt them during PS i aso not heartpain... But has anyone here tried Loe n Behold shoes? cos i am interested to know their price range for the AD
 

ds_gerl

bluey> work is like that de.... if not abt the job then is colleagues or perhaps the company's culture liao... sometimes really hv to "see open" abit... hahaha....
hee.... i'm also the kind "throw letter" style... but not when we have commitments like hse, AD, etc....
sad.gif


i also interested to go see loe & behold shoes.... but no chance (think need to make appt)... anyway i also bought my PS shoes from Anna Nucci.... nice nice... with bling bling somemore... heehee =P
