Binnie, good question
happy.gif


My little sis is on the jiemei team. She has this grand plan of getting $$ during gate crash. I was listening and kept reminding her that what goes around, comes around. She'll get the same treatment when it's her turn heee..

I think $10 will be better, easier to split and a stack of notes look better in photos.

Lish: Ya I think 5pcs of $10notes look better than 1pc of $50note. Ok I shall do that..

I also have a whole bunch of unmarried friends having plans to drown us with beer/liquor during our dinner.. I told them go ahead lo, but dun forget they are not married yet.. They will get worst from me for their wedding in future.. haha! I can see them hesitated.. Woohoo!!

Thats what im thinking of.
TO have $10 notes instead of $50.. easily to spilt between them.

happiness, haven't really counted. But I estimate around $500 - 600?

Some banks don't have money changing service. Which bank did you ladies go?

I got a shock when htb said he ordered a $400 20-jin roast pig... I do appreciate his gesture, but it's only meat.

Lish> I got my friend who works in bank to change the notes for me. It's not gonna be new notes, just notes that look relatively new & not old and crumpled..

happiness> I told my jiemeis ard 3rounds of angbao for gatecrash.. 1st & 3rd time is just yi shi yi shi then 2nd time is to enter the gate after gatecrash, that one will have more.. Btw we will only have 4JM & 4XDs only.. My bestman we gave $58, 3 others $48 each.

Hi all,

I have 6 jiemei dresses for sale- all at $11 per piece.

it looks like that:

What happened was that i bought my first piece for $50 at HK... and then .. saw ShangHai selling.

So i asked my Jiemei to tried it - intending to wear the same my the day. When i got my china colleague to buy it for me , it was slightly different in size and my jiemeis canot fit in at all... i bought at RMB 55 per piece, so I'll just let go at this same price... and absorb the shipping charges...because i also bought other clothes...

might be a good idea for jiemeis- it should fit a S or M at max for the dress. It's totally brand new and still in the bags...

Please email me at [email protected] if interested... thank you.

Cupcakes: you look really gorgeous, and so happy (like all brides are!) hehe.

when was your big day?

mine's over too, and I'm kind of afraid of how the photos will turn out, as I'm a very, very camera-shy bride.

Lish : Yours just went by... how was it? Dr Phua was simply hilarious eh? He ended my ROM with "HUAT AH!" to the amusement of my husband and in-laws! Must share your photos ok?

foreigndevil : Thanks! My grandma who brought me up passed away the week before and could I could feel her presence throughout the whole wedding. I think I'm super bias but it was the most beauitful wedding I've ever attended! LOL! My AD is on 17 Dec 2011 in Melbourne up on Mt Dendenong. I'm sure your photos will be just as great! All brides look good on their wedding day!

qiuling : Just a few more days! Enjoy the whole process and have fun on the day itself! Will be praying for good weather for you! xoxo

I teared up when he said we must remember to visit our parents whenever we can. He went on a little longer than usual, but I'm glad he was our solemnizer. My photos will come after Chinese New Year. So long, I know. Will share it on facebook. Stay tuned

Hey Jan 2011 brides!! I'm a May 2011 bride and would like to find out what's the alcohol consumption for your wedding?? Mine is a Saturday and I'm trying to figure out how much wine to get. Secondly, if you guys have extra wine which you would like to let go, I'm interested in buying them over at a reduced price, feel free to let me know!

Kass: we consumed about 40+ bottles of wine for 32/33 tables (not sure if got any last minute increase in tables. i was pretty slack that day :p) .. our remaining wines was returned and refunded =)

Freda: my hubby and I will be having lunch at my parents' house and dinner will be with his family. This year, will not be joining my extended family for reunion dinner. abit miss the feeling ..

bem: I was pretty lucky to be blessed with good weather on my wedding day. it kept raining recently as you know .. it started to drizzle when we checked in into the hotel .. i m a happy-go-lucky person .. bad weather might cause abit of inconvenience but it isnt that bad AS LONG AS MY GOWN STAYS CLEAN hahahahahaha .. I do not want to march in with a dirty gown ..
