Heard that the steamboat session went well...sorry ah mais, i didn't come cos i was sick.

Petrina: I read the good news. Congrats!!! Another mom-to-be among us.

CSI: How is everything? You must be very excited to meet Baby L. Keep us posted ok?

Dec 15 meet up sounds good to me. Gift exchange will be fun! I'll be back from my (belated) honeymoon so my gift exchange shall be from Japan! Heh.

How is everyone else?? Anyone sharing pics of the steamboat so those of us who didn't go can "partake" in it too?

oh pris, thks... we were too engrossed in the steamboat that nobody took any pics... haha

The whole event was very fast. Queued; Ordered; Ate; Paid-Up.

The chatting session was mainly done at the starbucks cafe due to steamboat overwhelming queue...

wah petrina, by then you're in week 29 - 30 ah...airlines would still allow (with Doc's letter), but Doc's will generally discourage coz by then 3rd trimester liaoz. And chances are, you'll be more tired and have quite a bit of discomforts. But if your body can ta han, and Doc is ok with it...then why not lah. Hehs, but like u said lorh. Have to get past your HB and MIL. heehee...

Pris,
yah, getting more tired by the day. Excited, but also tired. hahahaha...

Nope, we did not take pics that night coz we were either too busy finishing up the steamboat or laughing our hearts out at Starbucks. Too bad u didn't join us then. Gift from Japan ah, dun stress us hor, we dun have as much $$ as u to buy anything as expensive as what u buy to live up to your high standards leh.

Janf, I am going HK next Wed! hurray! Can't wait

got a lot of MTBs? heehee...so far, only Loinky, Crystalz, Petrina and me (4 of us only. heehee).

Erm, by now, usually it's a couples thing...but some times, the hubbies are busy, can't join. Good that u can join in the fun on 15 Dec (as if I'm joining like that. hahaha...but at least when u all take pics, I know who is M&W lorh...)

As for your experience with your PG...sorry to hear about that. It's tantamount to harrassment. Think you should bring it up to the BS. In fact, you can easily make a report if you want to. You have witnesses around you...but yah, you should bring it up to the BS.

Well, dun let it affect you too much. Focus on the next impt thing...

Hi CSI, we did bring up to the BS. The 2 coordinators that my HTB spoke to told him not to get involved anymore. But was very upset when i told the lady boss abt it. All she said was it's individual PG style of doing things and that PT PG is getting married soon. But this doesnt mean that he can do such things to other couples.

was so affected by the incident till had nightmares after crying to bed last night. hard on my HTB he took a cab to my plc to comfort me and rush home to prepare for work before sun rise.

Nellie, what's the diff b/w a standard vs a deluxe room? Are the extras worth the money?

Hmm as for the Dec venue, shall we go somewhere outside or someone's place?
 

hazuki

dec venue: i m open to anything. hse wise, the host may be busy cleaning n preparing stuff... outside maybe better. perhaps a chalet? so we can have a place to ourselves as well as no time limit.

I'm moving house (again). Was supposed to help a fren housekeep while they go overseas for further studies. But MIL not happy with the place after we moved in. Say dusty lah blah blah blah, not good for baby etc. (She has her reasons, which are quite valid...so, ok). So we managed to find another place and will be moving end of the month. Right now, I'm looking for a mover...to help us move our stuff across. Anyone has any contacts for good, reasonable priced and reliable movers? Can pass to me pls? Thanks!

haha... I juz read the posts... ya lor. Agree wif huiz n CSI. still not confirmed wedding date arh Lance? Either yes or no mah... no wonder huiz wan spank u liao.. hehs...

huiz: c lor. if u all interested in chalet, then i can try to book at NSRCC. more privacy n bigger space. member cheaper... if dun wan hassle, can choose to cater food instead of bbq also. so maybe CSI can join us if she not due yet.

Btw, CSI, when is ur actual due date?
 

hazuki

New Member
nellie: no probs. juz a suggestion. i go wif majority...
Cause i cannot think of anything else liao tat can let us chat in ease n exchange gifts etc...

Hey M&W, may I have your email please? We have this namelist of our particulars that I am maintaining.... need to go home and dig it out and send to you. But then again, we respect your decision if you decide not to divulge any information of yourself

Silly me suggested a picnic/BBQ at East Coast to Nellie just now. Really stupid idea coz I forgot that it's the rainy season then!

Let me go rake my brains and see if I can come up with anymore hopefully less illogical idea.... hehehe

nellie: i very bad organiser leh... if possible, maybe meet in either urs or huiz's hse? hehe, can order small buffet. easy no clean up needed. btw, when's deepavali?
 

kitty_li

Active Member
Deepavali is 8 Nov.

Anyway, my actual due date, I can only tell u after baby comes out. hahaha. coz I dunno if she'll want to come out earlier or later. Estimated due date is early december (within the 1st week or so). Technically, I have like, 7 more weeks...heehee...

Yah lorh. Confinement. If baby not out by 15 Dec, I would panicked...so wouldn't join either. hehs...

Crystalz, we have about 7 to 8 more weeks....hehs.
 

sherrie

New Member
we can have the dec 15th gathering at my hse...since it's a known fact that i can't cook, we can either have potluck or buffet catering at my place...but my hse is v small compared to nellie and huiz' flats..hehe
 

loveangel

New Member
Nov 8 happens to be my birthday! Hee... are we having a gathering on that day?

Huizz: Don't worry about my gift exchange. Perhaps everyone can set a budget (or range) of $x for the gift exchange?
happy.gif
That way, it will help everyone in choosing presents too.

M & W: Hi, i'm sorry to read about your experience with this PG. He has NO professional work ethics! I think you were right to tell the BS and if the owner doesn't care, the owner has no ethics too.


Are we going to anyone's house for the Dec gathering? My place is available if no one minds.
 

hazuki

New Member
hehe, i dun mind anyone's place. but sherrie's place is nearer to my hse... so i vote her hse... she stay toa payoh...
 

huizz

New Member
Yes, Nellie and I had discussed about setting a budget for the gifts but its still q early now. We will inform everyone sometime in Nov/early Dec?

I am very keen to visit Sherrie's place too!
happy.gif
Why not we gather on 15 Dec at her place and give Nov 8 a miss?

I'm ok with both venues. Let the majority decide.

Petrina - organising our gatherings are quite simple. Just set a date and time. List out the venues in mind then get everybody's attendance. Of course, the only tiring part is to wait for everybody's confirmations cos not all of us can confirm immediately and must be prepare for last minute changes.

nellie: hehs, i leave the planning to u n huiz bah... I'll go wif the flow... Was thinking of nov 8 as i din c CSI for sometime... Dec 15 is fine wif me also.

Hey if we finally decide for buffet at Sherrie's place, then we can order the mini buffet from Neo Garden? Sherrie, u got this on your wedding AD also if I don't remember wrongly?

I order from them when my hubby's classmates fr M'sia came to our place in June. The food was good! The black pepper pork was so well done that they thought its beef.

huizz

New Member
Petrina, what kinda bag does he carry to work? A bag perhaps? Or if he has a PDA, would u like to get him a nice new cover? Mine asked for a leather PDA cover for his bday on Tues... haha, heng for me too coz its something he wants and doesnt burn a hole in my pocket....
 

kitty_li

hehs...yah horh. we stay quite near each other. kekeke...

hmmm, my HB always asks to be treated to a nice dinner. good for me lah, coz save my pocket a bit. But then, when it comes to my bday...I get dinner/lunch treats only as well. Dang...

How about a biz shirt? He needs to wear biz shirts for work? At the end of the day, it's also how u 2 spend the day together lah...

A prezzie is one thing, but also the itinerary for the day can make it a fun one.

nellie: will keep ur discount card in mind.

petrina: i think watch is a good idea too.
