My baby is a monkey BB then . Didn't plan for it, but I guess I can't fault the monkey BB for playing around with our family planning..haha
As for the toilet thingie, I didn't really notice. Most of their toilet a bit like our hawker centre / coffeeshop ones. But I got one colleague whose only willing to look for McDonald toilet, so everywhere we go, the 1st thing she'll look for is McDonald.
Some of the "strange" looking vege are really nice. Much better than our vege
. Have to trial & error...heh heh.
The way they cook bamboo shoot is quite different. So may not have recognise it. but if u smell something funny, then tht's either bamboo shoot or smelly beancurd.
I was with Milan Wedding Collections. Photography is really those journalistic style. And yar, you would prefer a brightly lit area for night shoots. else imagine ur night shoot turn out only 2 of you and darkness as your background.
We didn't really want studio photos, but took it anyway. It wasnt too bad, and not really "studio"-like. More like an indoor shoot around the Milan shop and its area. Was pretty satisfied overall. How else would you explain an extra $3k for photo...haha
actually not reall satisfied. the only thing i'm satisfied is the makeup artist n the wedding dress..
Congratulations!! when will be BB due? i wanted to have monkey BB lor but too bad, still no news. u r still studying? part time? btw, can't remember r u gal or guy huh? tink u mentioned b4..
hw come only choose mcdonald? tot will choose hotel toilets?
yar, 3-mth old BB liao.
well, i'm the first guy of class to have a BB. So is my wife the 1st person amongst her friends to have one
yar, at 1st when we sign the credit for $3k, very heartpain, coz only intend to have about $1k extra. But aiya, chinchye lor... anyway, money can always make back
and in fact, we changed bridal shop once after paying $1k deposit. originally signed up with seletar broadway. but found their gowns old & out of fashion and photography is not modern too.
but on hindsight, we should have hired a good videographer for the actual day. we didn't hv a proper videographer for that day. We feel that video is more meaningful rather than a actual day photographer.
yar, guy guy. you mean u can even deduce tht from my posting? i guess i'm a sagi, so more optismistic & go-lucky kind..haha.
err... most places in taiwan no 5-star hotel leh... how to find toilet. but mcDonald, there're plenty... heh heh.
oh forgotten u've seen my AD photos..hee..i like the makeup lor..
u r daddy liao..must b serious lor...first guy in yr class to hv BB?? yr wife must b young.
wah, u spent alot on photos hor..i din spend alot, top only 6 photos..anyway, if top up more oso no use, photos are not well taken..but we bargained for free acrylic frames.
i did noticed my bridal shop evening gowns r oso limited n abit outdated but i din changed lor..cos cannot find someone to transfer..nobody wans
..no choice but to stick to it..
hmm..videographer will b able to catch yr happiest moments lor and can play anytime u wan if wans to refresh back memories..hee..i oso hv videographer but not professional ones lor.
eh, i din noticed mcdonals leh...only noticed alot of convenience stores..mayb i'm always inside the van..
idono, then how old r u? i wan, i wan to view ur BB's pix... i like babies very much.
pls click on my nick to get my email addy.
yah, same here, only extra $1K for photos. in fact, my hb frowns on this amt liao. anyway we will see how. mayb the photos turn out not as nice, so no pt buyg extra.
ohhh seletar broadway. coincidentally, tt was the 1st BS i shortlisted. was very tempted to sign up coz they promised us alot of goodies. and price was very reasonable. but later we went to the exhibition and signed up wif GHA instead. coz i glance thru SB's ROM gowns then, they were very old and quite limited. i cant imagine wearg a run-down gown, so in the end i took up GHA.
my ROM photos were quite ruined, tt each time i looked at it, i regretted not hiring a prof photographer. thus i told myself i will not allow this to happen on my AD. i hv already engaged a reliable AD photographer & videography. initially my hb rejected the idea of hiring a videographer, coz he feels no one will look at it several yrs down the road. but i was very insistent. and we managed to compromise in the end. to me, the day will pass by very fast w/o u remembering wat happened, so muz capture it on video.
no lah, i cant tell u r a guy the 1st few times i was in this thread. then got 1 time, u mentioned it, so i rem lor.
yah, mao, u 4got i saw ur AD photos liao. its nice... i like ur AD photos.
actually it was my ideal age to hv a BB at 24. but hor, i am past tt age now, so a bit regretful.
mi just came back fr taipei, can give some advise.. stay in Rainbow Hotel is e best, cos it just rite in e middle Xin Men Ding.. not really rundown but not a 5* or maybe not even 4*, pretty convience thou.. i'll suggest on back pack, it really easy to go around with MRT every where, very similar to Hong Kong.. very safe too. Food: don forget to try their Lu Roi Fan, it really delicious.. a lot of xiao chi too, just try everything a bit, u won't regret it. But need to go diet after ur trip! hehe..
Shi Lin Ye Shi and Wu Fen Pu is a must go place if e ladies want to buy up to date fashion clothing. they're very Ha-Chi, so most of their clothing very japanese, if u watch taiwan vareity show, those singer like Jollie or Ah Ya, the clothing there are very much like wat they wear.. Can reach there by MRT, pretty easy.. hope e infor help.. cheers
yes, i had a MUA. its from my BS mah... my colleague did comment tt the MUA did not do a gd job. anyway i am not hvg her 4 my AD.
hi babu... i heard abt rainbow hotel here in this forum but we did not stay anywhere near the city when i was there.
i think u muz b pretty adventurous to try all their food. i am not lor. thus ended up i din try alot of things, esp food tt give out a kind of funny smell... i juz walk away.
yah, i agree, their fashion is very japanese inspired. the guide told us tt taiwanese likes to follow japanese style very much. dunno why leh. though i like their clothes, i din think it was very appropriate to wear in SG. i think pple will give me weird stares. hahaha
me too, my rom MUA is no good. i jus dun like the way she put makeup for me. so i requested to change MUA during AD. lucky i did change if nt, i'll regret forever.
yes, the clothings there follow jap trend lor..but somehow, not suitable for me..hee..i prefer the food to clothes...yah, i agreed. after taipei trip, i put on weight ah..cos pratically trying those xiao chi if nt, kinda regret not trying leh..
Have I responded that I'm 29? Starting to feel old.
Which bridal studio did you choose tht provides not-so-good MUA? talking abt tht, i had terrible experience for my 1st make-up. the MUA spread some weird cooling stuff all over my face, then smear some cool gel on it... yucks. end of day, i had a tough time getting all the stuff off my face. after like 20 min washing i tot i had it off, then silly me use towel to wipe and my whole towel turned color.
hv to have patience lor. when he's so young, only a few times each day, he'll be quite happy. but nowadays, can laugh back when I smile at him. just tht due to exam stress, didn't take more photos of him
the cooling stuff suppose to "protect" my skin and help the make-up to stay on the whole day. cant remember wht the gals call it. cost me extra to pay for it.
err... i guess i didnt' wash hard enuff? kinda didn't expect make-up to stay on so well.
yr BB is soooooosooooo cute!! i love BBs too..hmm, by looking at him, can roughly imagine hw u look like..cos yr boy boy v handsome!!
oops, hvn send u the link to my photos yet..
jus curious, does yr wife oso surfs this forum??
u still hvn pass 30 mah, where got old..at least give u $30 note u still can give $1 change
I agree, BB is taking away my time for other things
Cant help it though
Hmm.. boy boy good looking, daddy not so good heh heh. yar, my wife surf this forum too. Not sure what's her nick though. Usually she reads threads tht I dun normally read, eg. bridal shops, mummy threads etc.
mao, i think u r the sort tt goes ga-ga over BBs when u spot one? heee, i am lor... when i see a BB on the MRT at times, i will play wif him. then my hb always say "dun try to 'abduct' the BB ah, later his mommy scold u." of coz jokingly lah, but its fun lor, esp the BB smiled at u, wah, the feeling is so happy.
i din noe guys oso hv ampuole... hmmm...
oh yah, can u share wif me the links or websites u went to when u were researchg on ur hse reno the other time? btw how is ur new hse coming along?
idono, dun b so "qian xu" lah... heee, mayb ur BB takes after ur wife?
of coz the guys will not noe wat r the things the MUA uses on ur face lah, u juz pay lor...
me same like u... like to play wif BBs... but sometimes when ppl say to quickly go and hv one of my own, i ponder 4 a while leh. of coz i can chuck the BB back to their parents when the BB cries, but if its my own, then i gotta pacifify the child. i dunno if i will hv tt kind of patience.
hmmm, i am not planning to hv a BB immed after my wedding, but rather 1 yr later. coz much as i wld like to b a young mom, i think i wanna hv some time to build up the bond wif my hb 1st b4 a child comes in.
but of coz if the BB arrives earlier than expected, then will still hv him.
did i see those in studio b4? cant rem... only rem i saw ur AD photos.
we managed to hunt and shortlisted 2 units, but we dare not finalise the unit yet coz am waitg 4 my hb's current unit to b sold off 1st. keeping fingers crossed.
yup, u gotta b patient lor..my 6 mth old niece likes ppl to carry her all the time...she cannot b left alone for awhile..must hv someone toking to her..if nt, she will cry..
hee..can't imagine u being a mum leh..u seems so carefree to me leh..
oh, remember when we meet up with the rest of the gals, i showed u all my rom photos n some of the indoor shoots photos.
the owners can wait for u to sell off the flat?? actually, if the new hse under yr hb n yr name, u can buy the flat first..but of cos, if u wan to roll yr $$ then no choice u hv to sell the flat b4 u can do anything.
the owners can wait 4 us, but my hb dun wan to end up wif the addn stress of hvg 2 hse under his name. its too much to service the loans lor. thus in order to avoid any finanacial burden, we juz gotta wait to sell off the unit.
oh nw current hse oso under yr HB's name ah?? then its better to sell the current one first lor..at least there's no rush for u.
hee, nbrmd..its okie..anyway its been such a long time rite?
hv send u the link to ur hotmail acct liao..
previously oredi met up wif starz b4 cos we are both frm another thread then we bunch of gals meet up to chat lor..
nbr meet up wif guy frm forum b4 leh..can try..scully all the attention turn to yr BB if u bring him over..
oh my god, keep looking at yr BB photos..so cute!!
i think u r confused liao... my hb is not intending to buy 2 flats. currently, he has a flat under his name. wat i was tellg maomao was if we r gog to buy the resale flat b4 we sell off his current one, my hb will end up wif 2 houses under his name, meang more burden mah. so we hav to sell off the current unit b4 buyg a new one.
yah, i met up wif maomao b4 tog wif other gals from another thread previously.
mao, yah, we better wait 4 the current one to sell off b4 we conmmit, we dun wan other pple to say we r wearing so kan cheong and end up burdening ourselves. b patient lor.
yah, idono's BB sooooooooooooooooooooo cute! OMG! i cant stand it!!!!
heh heh. Think will keep this thread in his scrapbook then show BB next time
oh, my question is how did u hb manage to get a flat under his name? Am asking becoz I'm quite interested in pinnacle's location. But right now just bought my current flat (which is new) like 2 yrs only. so is there a way for me to buy pinnacle as well?
dun think I wanna be caught by my guy friends meeting up with mother's and wife's... haha. But if wife is interested, i can accompany her...heh heh.
i hv no idea how my hb did it then but the hse is solely under his name ONLY. his parents & siblings r juz considered occupants. under this special condition, if he were to buy another flat and loan from HDB, he hv to stay in his current flat for at least 10 yrs b4 he can do so. on the other hand, if we wan to move out after 5 yrs, we can only loan from banks. thus we will b doing so if we r gettg a resale now.
hv u been to the showflat at pinnacle? i hav been wantg to go. it seems under the pinnacle thread, not many pple can afford to get a flat there. so sorry tt i am not able to answer ur qns as i dunno much abt housing rules.
u r thinking of getting pinnacle flat?? i'm not sure when the showroom will end. mayb u wan to go to hdb website to check.
is the flat u bought under resale? hv u buy any hdb hse under 1st timer? if u bought a new hse under 1st timer, u cannot buy another new hse. for 5 yrs, u cannot sell yr current hse oso. its either u downgrade to smaller resale hse or upgrade to a bigger hse. if its resale flat, u can wait for 2 yrs b4 selling yr flat n buy new ones.
for further details, its better u call hdb up. they'll xplain to u clearly.
to me, i tink pinnacle is too expensive for me..scully cannot pay for the hse if based on our pay.
Hmm... think i've exhausted wht i can say abt taiwan
except tht i know recently, some man tried to convert lions to christianity at mucha zoo which is located in taipei, reachable by MRT system. Needless to say, the lions decide to bite him. probably got fedup coz too sian abt pple preaching to them.
there are quite a number of hotels that are around MRTs... i usu stay in this one call Friends Hotel.... no star type... but its cheap... for about slightly over $100 a nite u can get a room with jacuzzi type of bathtub.. check it out: http://www.ffh.com.tw/08_ff/aboutus.html
it's about 45 min ride from Airport by Cab or hotel ferry service... it's opp Ming Quan MRT station so it's pretty convenient.. can get to most places within 10-15 min with MRT..
5 days.. if u wanna male it real compact, i suggest perhaps u can try goin further up north to places like yang ming shan for a couple of days, then proceed down to taipei city for the next 2 days for food and shoppin before headin home...
must go places.. well, the 2 "must go" places for tourists seems to be shi lin night market and xi men ding... great for buyin clothes and stuff.. and snacks like ji pa etc in the night mkt (then u'll noe the one in spor in crap!)
if u r into night spots, can check out their MOS as well..
u may also wanna check out their HUGE shoppin mall call xing guang san yue.. there's a few but the biggest is at the city hall area..
if u like books, there's a 24 hr bookstore called cheng pin..
food wise, too many.... there's a stretch of restaurants behind sogo at zhong xiao dong road.. the jap charcoal grill is really good... the ma la guo to me is a must try... too many... depends on wot u like really..
