sorry huh, lazy to sift through all the above messages again... anyone can provide me Chhon Huat's contact no. and address? He is a actual day photographer right? Any website to see his portfolio and what are the different packages like...?
Louie: I went back to my flat for a detailed check and spotted a few defects. Mainly the parquet flooring. Some of the strips were sand down but they forget to relacquer it. Also my master toilet's metal handle was rusty and the clips holding the glass screen were corroded. So i will be reporting the defects. The toilet flushing system is fine though. How long did they take to repair the defects? HDB says 2-3 weeks. Also, the parquet skirting round the house was not done very well too...the nails were not sand down properly. So sad...
May: Watever defects... jus report all to HDB. Even if the parts tat were not so well done. They are resp for fixing it!!!! They took VERY long to fix my stuff... the HDB main contractor was really slow, so must call HDB to chase all the time.
Hey gals... no one responding to my posting whether u all interested in outing????
Just like to share that me and my FH have signed the contract with Nat and yes! finally confirmed on our wedding venue...
oh yeah, saw that some of u (Leo??) is interested to sign up with Le Galleria? I am a LG bride too and i must said that i have been a very satisfied customer so far. Doreen is very helpful and patient. I went for my gown selection twice but could not decide on one. during the whole process, she gave her advices patiently and her service is really very good! i love one of her gown but gosh, i was too short so alterations will make the gown so awful..sigh..no choice got to give it up...
Yap, I am the one intersted in Le Galleria. I must say Doreen has a wide range of nice gowns. I am attracted by some of them, that's why she's in my list. Glad to hear good comments from you. You mean you give up the gown on the rack and go for MTM or you totally give up La Galleria? I believe she can design a very nice gown for you.
May : I visited Jawn yesterday. Susan and Euzart are very nice and professional. Indeed their gowns are very speical and they make you feel confident on their work. I realised that they like to do gown with 3D effect. You mentioned that your package is $3838 using Linn as your photographer, the quote they gave me for Linn is $3988, think they have raise their price.
Now I headache, I like both Doreen and Jawn, making a hard decision now.
LT: I confirm my kitchen with Classics last weekend. It cost me S$4800 for a l-shape kitchen about 13 ft long with corian solid surface top and laminated with PVC trimming doors. I also enjoyed a 5% discount and they do not charge GST. Very happy now.
visited Classic last sat. they quoted me about $5000 for U-shape kitchen about 15ft, corian solid surface top, postform doors with aluminium trimming. there's also the 5% discount and some free accessories
did you have any accessores such as pull out drawers, trays, etc???
i intend to take pull out trays (2 pieces) - long type (about 90cm)for bottom cabinets. 1 cutlery tray & 1 s/s dish rack mounted inside the top cabinet. we also have frosted glass doors for top cabinets... and of course another $100 per door. i think we have to set aside additional $500-$600 for accessories (on top of the freebies given to us about $400 over!!)
actually we thot laminate is not as durable as postform so decided to have the latter instead. i don't really remember how much is mine pfr. quote is with my hubby.
mine is a lady... her name just slipped my mind... gotta check and let u know later.
LT: There are mixed reviews. Some says postform will warp over time but the trimming will hold in place.
I also got the s/s dish rack and 2 frosted glass doors for the top cabinet. I was told the full range of BLUM accessories will be displayed this week. So you can bet that we will spend more for accessories.
May - must really budget not to overspend on accessories... cos i can foresee the kitchen is probably our biggest investment if i include the washer, fridge, hood & hob (getting fujioh which is abt $1k).
i think my hubby loves their kitchen much more than i do. their quality is no doubt good, but the price's really a 'killer'!!!
so when r u starting your kitchen reno? have you completed reno for the rest of your home??
LT: yep, i have already bought the washer, fridge, hob and etc from Mayer. Have not bought fridge thou.
Kitchen is very impt to me so i ahev actually set aside 5K budget. Actually, i dont find classic price a killer. I think contractor also charge the same. U can be rest assure that the quality is there for classics and they uses better hinges from BLUM. So dont worry.
No, i have not start reno yet. waiting for hdb to return me my keys..they fixing the defects. Sigh...i plan to have everything done b4 CNY. BUt dount i can...my wetworks have to do be done then classics can come down and measure...sigh...
If u are worried of the cost...go for laminated doors with PVC triming loh.
LT & May: actually some IDs may even be cheaper than classic. Think the alum trimmings are nice, pvc trimmings are more old-fashioned. Most showrooms I saw use stainless steel/ alum trimmings leh...
Titto: no probs, will inform everyone abt the outing again!!
Louie: Are you sure you can cover so many places? Sentosa alone will take up a lot of time cos you have the whole island to shoot. Robin told me that if I choose Sentosa, the whole outdoor shoot will be in Sentosa. Labodour Park is around PSA. There is a beach there, a bit dirty but heard that you can take very nice sun set shoot there. Enjoy your shooting and share with us your experience.
Since we are Amara Brides, why not we have the gathering at Amara coffee house or silk road restaurant, their food are good.
Louie - wow.... it's good that you have had a good session. yeh, sometimes when you have warmed up, the session is over!!! i did a personal portfolio - also quite stiff at first, then slowing warm up in front of camera as it progresses. quite fun too!!!
so must share with us your photos ok.
i'd also finally signed with my ID to start my reno next mth.... am so glad.. after 7 mths of search, efforts and agony!!! phew!!!!
May, Louie - don't think using a kitchen specialist liao, cos when we negotiate price with the ID, everything's agreeable, so i think it's more convenient that they do everything. thnks for the help anyway!
Titto: realised tat u will be out of town till 13 Dec, can u make it for outing on 18 Dec then?
Leo & rest: can't make it on 4 dec liao, coz' meeting up wif Choon Huat & others to discuss actual day photography!!!
LT: U must be very natural in front of photos liao lah... wedding shots no probs sia! So, u didn't use Cirseen liao? I went to my fren's house... VERY nicely done up, realised he used the same reno ID as me!!! Heehee... their works are really good. I didn't have to monitor their work... I just went over the weekend or 2 weeks later to check if everything is ok... good hor!
Will share if u gals the photos when out lah... they shd be calling me in a week's time or so lah....
Hi everyone. I had my wedding banquet at Amara 2 weekends ago. Must say that the food portions were very generous, the sharksfin bowl was quite big, and there were lotsa crabmeat and sharksfin. Other dishes were quite nicely done..e.g. the scallops were fat and juicy. Most of my guests happily "complained" that they had too much food! Hahaha... :-D Service by the Amara staff were good... they were helpful and kind. I am glad i chose Amara. Natalin has been patient and nice too. The bridal suite was quite good... half the room was available for my friends to hang out in before the dinner started, and the bedside tables were decorated with red rose petals. Quite romantic. It was worth the money we spent.
Amara definitely deserves a 5 star hotel status!
I cant confirm my attendance. Just started reno work at my place and now got so much to do and buy before the end of the year. Really stress man...
Louie: i also have not decide on my actual day photography. Dunno will have any more $$ after spending on reno and furniture. Last nite, hubby just comment that all the things we have bought are more than what we have budget. Sigh...
Leo: good that you have settled your bridal. so now you must do homework hor. when is your first appt? My first fitting shld be this month - very kan cheong and worried that i have put on weight...
BP Gal: I am happy that Amara is great for your wedding. Shows that we have all made a right choice. How many tables did you have? Was the march-in a long one? My WG has a 100 cm train and now i quite worried that i cant handle.
