It would be better if you call him directly as he is a really busy man. met him 2 weeks back and saw his list of appt for solemnisation stretch all the way to june next year with at least 4-5 appt every sat and sun.
Hi all, intending to engage Mr Chia as my JP. Can you pls advise me his photo and contact info to [email protected] ? can some1 advise if mr chia is able to take ceremony at ard 8.30pm? any experience or anyone done their sol after the 1st march in of the banquet?
can anyone share his photo with me? With regards to the buddhist speech he will be making, will it be sensitive to non-buddhist guests? I will have friends who are Christians attending the ceremony....
also afraid might be too draggy... any expereince to share?
Do provide me with your email add if you require his photo.... I am sure he will ask whether are both of u buddhism? If so, he will talk a little during your solemnisation. You can request not if you are not or you dun wish and see what he say.....
I would like to say sorry first..... As for your friends, you have invited them to witness your solemnisation whether they belong to other religion,errrr.... I believe that they have to respect you and each other religion even though there is a religion speech...
Try talking to Mr Chia, he is a very nice person to talk to....
actually his speech is not really religion speech.. he touched on two topics tat day.. how to manage finances as a married couple and something abt how to maintain marriage /conflict and to love each other parents.. i din really listen as the speech can get quite dry.. and boring..as you have to keep loving at him .. smile while the PG is flashing away.. and the two witnesses are trying hard to prevent themselves from yawning by smiling widely .. overall still nice to have a speech .. not just a "1/2 min solemnisation" he made us say loudly to each other "I luv you" at the end of the ceremony..
i spoke to Mr Chia yesterday and he told me that his priority will be given to those we want his buddhism briefing.And i told him we are free-thinker so he ask me to call him back 2-3months before my ROM day to check with him if he is still available.
Personally i dun feel confortable with this arrangement.I will go to other JP instead.
actually his buddhism teaching doesn't really require you to do something religious. his "briefing" is more of a marriage counselling session where he share what are the ways to maintain and have a successful relation with your spouse after marriage and living together. i find his sharing very useful and it really give me an insight on how to have a successful married life.
we had Mr Chia as our JP on last sat.. and yes, he made us said loudly 'i love u' at the end of the ceremony.... hahahahaha
overall, i would say he's a pretty nice JP.. he even told us where our parents shld stand while taking photos with him...
Could you email me Mr Chia's contact please? I tried to PM you but ur PM not active leh.. My ROM will be this coming 26th Sept and I'm reli interested in engaging him to be our solemnizer..
My email: [email protected]
hi Shenry Zhan,
Mr Chia email is [email protected]
his hp i need to check with HTB cos he contact Mr Chia wan...
Cos he is my Solemnizer also. You need to email him your prefer time but he will try his best to help u.
cos initially i am to solemnise at 1230pm but he have another one earlier so he ask me to take 1315 instead.
Hi Momo's girl,
my ROM is on my AD. I got Mr. Chia as my solemnizer. I just contacted him yesterday over email, he replied very promptly and after a phone call today, he agreed to be our solemnizer! So i guess yours in oct not too late to invite him now!
He says the solemnization is approximately 15minutes.
I think he considerate enough to ensure each solemniation is spaced 1-hr apart. Someone already got the slot that i was aiming for, so we got to push an hour earlier. Now wondering what can my guest do while waiting for the dinner to start. we have a cocktail reception, but still limited on what can be done. but i guess not too many of my guests will appear for rom either. Haha!
Will Mr. Chia mingle around with guest and bring some humours when he conducting the event ? Cos I don't want the overall event look over formal and tense..
Usually will he join for the dinner once the solemnisation done ?
Yes. it will only be ard 2-3mins
that's what he told me when i say that i wan to exclude the the sharing.
But after much dicussion + researching around, i understand that his sharing is basically on how to maintain a blissful marriage not totally "buddhism" as we thot.
So i've decided to go ahead with it to make it more meaningful.
