which leehwa shop u went for?& how much u got for ur bands?
i wanna have w/ diamond,,make my bf headache,,hahahaha
actually,this weekend we're gonna meet his friend who own the jewellery factory in jakarta.hope we can find the platinum with cheaper price than SG.
but i doubt it coz platinum hardly find in indo.if does matter,well..guess we'll get it in SG.
its true not all white gold will tarnish..but heard that it will come someday..especially if someone have bad quality sweat,the chemical reaction will effect the gold,,then tarnish will be possible appear.dunno wether this 'gossip' is true or not..but i like it safe & just go for platinum
I think diamonds in indo should be cheaper right. You get direct from factory, i bet its cheaper than those leehwa, sookee etc in SG. But true, platinum is not very common in indo. Have fun searching for your wedding band! I cant wait for my time to come too. hehe...
wow. left for meeting and there are so many postings already
leeds, how much is it ah? i'm scared after i sign up i'll be too lazy to go for the classes. hehehe.... only 'hot' in the beginning.
err... from what i heard from several jewelers, it's not true that platinum does not tarnish as easily as white gold. both tarnish at the same rate according to them. actually those jewelers that i spoke to also said that platinum requires more care and polishing as it might get scratches more easily. so don't know which is true, in the end chose white gold for my wedding band.
update on the gathering, been to toast twice and it's quite a relax place so can definitely take our own sweet time there.
20 may 2004, toast:
rhs, you wanna join us??
mmmhh... just to let you ladies know, platinum prices are rising right now. due to a high demand in china or something like that.
Ya lor i only check emails at home. In school (i'm teaching in a church kindergarten), cannot even use the handphone. Must take care of the kids... Can only use hp once the kids leave the school. HA haaa..
Dear square couple,
Did you apply to this school through the classified ads? Cos i saw the ads a couple of times in newspapers. I was actually considering whether i should apply for the pre-school teacher position or not. BUt since i already got a job at a church kindergarten here, then i thought i may just continue with what i have now. Maybe can consider applying again when my hubby-to-be wants to work in indonesia.
Which post are you applying for? So you went for the interview already? The people in indonesia are generally very friendly. Food wise, should not be a problem, but be prepared to get stomachache in the 1st few days you are there.
Working in international school in indo should be quite challenging. Cos you are working with politicians' kids.. HAaa.. Anyway, tell me more why you choose to apply for this position which means a new environment and people.. HAa.. Seems like i'm interviewing you ah.. HA haaa
Met up with billy yest, like what you said, the invitation card designs are horrible even the one with leaves patterns (after seeing it again)!
As for the wedding favors, true enough its heart-shaped choc! And the worse is, the choc box is so ugly, it's white box with "Four Seasons" logo & writing on it. Reminds me of boxes of toiletries usually in hotel bathroom...
Sigh! We are now thinking of getting our own cards and favors (or at least change the box).
Your meeting with billy doesn't sound like it went too well. Sigh... I thought by now they would have come up with new cards and favours!! They are always so boring! I'm also thinking of getting my own cards. But wedding favours will stick to their chocs lah, my parents said they are good for guests to munch on before dinner is served. So, are you able to change the cards + favours for something else??
The classes are very fun, and cos of the variety, I dont get bored lor. Classes are not crowded, there's a cap on the no of ppl who can attend the class. Yah its like that lah, when i first started i can only last 5min on the threadmill, now i can cycle for an hour! haha...
seriously cannot leh. will be panting after the first 30 mins. i can cylce cos in seconday, i used to cycle a lot. stayed near east coast beach so almost every weekends go to the beach to cycle.
If you are really keen, i think i can bring you in for trial. Gotta ask first though. You want?
Which branch do you go to normally? I've never tried body combat but i see the class quite packed usually, a bit worried might get kicked. haha... Wah you should try cycle challenge! cycling for one whole hour!! But really really good.
With uob card, you can only go twice a month right? Should just sign up for membership, its cheaper if you sign up for a year, $60/mth. Otherwise its abt $150/mth.
teatree, thanks for the picts, v.v. nice, beautiful, too.
so u held yr wedding at Borobudur, Jakarta, huh? must be v.happening, u know indo style, he..he
So now, u stay in spore? buy a house here? me, thinking of buying also but still searching the location.
how's yr EG? oh yeah, heard that now, Se Ping won't receive so much order anymore. Is she one of the popular designer in Bandung?
Will you hold yr wedding here, won't u? Must be prepare for all yr relatives to come, cos family feud in Bandung is very close, rite?
I usually attend PF either far east or suntec. Yeap become a member is good, but i won't use it too often only be able to come during weekend cos i live and work in east side. Quite lazy if have to travel during weekdays.
But i like PF, new and fun. Is the cycle challange class interesting? only cycling, rite? did you sweat alot aft it?
yeap ur rite, used to browse weddingku to help me finding the vendor during my preparation.
You prepare yr wedding too? when and where?
You can send me email anytime, if you have questions.
U girls will meet up on may 20, rite? not sure if i can make it, but really love to, then can make frenz
anyway where is TOAST? which part of orchard? maybe i'd be able to drop by.
OK, girls, dinner time...
do you all cook? me not anymore, too lazy always eat out :-(
Sorry to answer your question only at this hour. HA haa.. Udah basi ya.. Hee!
I'm working in a church kindergarten and my working hours is frome 7.45am - 3pm. BUt usually stays back to do some preparation. Then this week and next week, i have night classes. That's why can only log in at night. Now so sleepy already! HA haa..
So how are you? How's things going with you? Wedding prep so far so good?
Welcome to the thread! So tell us more about yourself! =)
Teatree, I found out from PF last night, can bring in a friend for a free trial, as long as i make prior arrangement with the consultant. So just tell me when you want to go and will arrange with the consultant ok.
I normally go every wednesday for my 2 fav classes, pilates & cycling. Want to go?
Candi, Yah i heard from my relatives Se Ping's designs a bit outdated now so we all change designers lor. But he's still very popular in bandung. You've made gowns there too? I'm holding my wedding in SG but wont be inviting many ppl from bandung. Like you said, bandung is very closely-knit! Everybody seems to know everybody else, thats why gossips travel so fast!! haha... So if i invite one, i gotta invite the other and end up inviting too many ppl, so to make things easier we are only officially inviting immediate relatives and whoever happens to be in SG at that time.
You should try cycle challenge class! great workout, really work out a sweat, and feel very "high" after that!
Butterfly, haha... no worries i know you can only reply at night. Your job sounds good, finish at 3!! wahh *envy! What night classes are you taking now? Busy busy busy ah... working and studying and preparing for wedding at same time. how do you cope?
hi anna, since u're fr medan, can i ask u a few questions...
i'm sporean, so i may be quite ignorance of the "common" things in indonesia, so pls pardon me.
are mostly chinese in medan hokkien?
do all indonesian chinese hv a chinese name besides their english name? i'm quite confused. last time i used to hv an indonesian classmate. she has english/malay name but she oso has typical chinese name eg. li cai lian. so actually their surname is following whose?
ya most of the chinese ppl there do speak hokkien. its quite the same variety as the penang one so you may hv heard it if you have been to penang.
um.. just curious..why do you ask? are you planning on moving there?
some indo ppl hv a chinese name and some dun. the chinese name is the same as the names ppl hv in sg. the indo name is the surname - usually a variation of the chinese surname. english name usually is in english... but some of the indo ppl aer very assimilated into the indo culture then you say they hv more indo names... personally i find jakarta ppl more assimilated then other areas.. but then tt also varies...
why do you ask?
err... i think the part where the groom's side gives the necklace is called lamaran. heheh... at least that's what i had. engagement party more like announcement to people that 2 persons are going to be married.
canny, well, look on the bright side, you'll miss all those hectic preparations once married
when are the receptions by the way?
i'm not going to do much. just tired of work. hehe..
I realise that a number of indonesian brides hold their wedding at FS ya? I personally haven't been there yet, so now wondering how the ballroom looks like. Is it a really big ballroom? Cosy and nice? Heee.. So curious..
It's good you're having your wedding in dec. So your relatives can come over for your wedding + the sale!!! HA haaa dec is such a good time for shopping! Heard that this year, the great spore sale will be longer than the usual. 2 1/2 months in total! HA haaa! I think so lah...
I'm taking early childhood studies for my masters. You planning for further studies after your grad?
So now that Rusmin's wedding is over, who's next ah? Heee.. Any 'bocoran' from araz?
Actually i don't know what to prepare for my wedding leh.. HA haaa.. These few weeks very relaxed about the wedding stuff. Haven't done anythg related to wedding, except for being a kaypoh in this forum! Haaa!
What time do you normally knock off from work? Mine finish at 3 cos i start early. Must wake up so early. So now even on sat and sunday, i also wake up early.. Hiksss... Want to zzz again, but cannot.. BUt then in the afternoon i get so sleep lorrr.. HAhaaa
FS ballrorom is very nice. It is a reasonable size and I dun recall seeing pillars in the ballroom. One of the reasons I chose FS is that it caters for smaller banquets lor. I only have appx 25 tables.
Have you had ur wedding?
Yeah... I chose Dec cause itz easier for my fiance and I to ask for vacation time from our companies.
I totally forgot about the SALE. After hearing wat u said.... I think the SALE is a BIG BONUS for us.
