Yah lor, he was enjoying himself. At first he said he planned to sing 1 verse only, but I think he enjoyed himself so much he sang the whole song in the end. All the guests were laughing away... :p He was in one of his crazy moods lah!

Hi Shugar,
Thanks alot! I got your checklist!! =)
Yup, i agree with Vanilla, your hb s brave!
++ clap clap ++

Hi Vanilla,
I am rather confuse now. Pls pardon me.
(1) You mean we only confirm with Jamie the actual # of tables ard 1 week before AD?
(2) The inviatations- 3mths in advance: we only ESTIMATE to Jamie the # of tables.
(3) we head down to the printer & select ur cards and print ur invites? We dun collect the cards from Jamie and source for our OWN printers?

Thanks!

Hehe... yah, I applaud his bravery too! :p
I dun think I'd have been able to do tat.

bubble-bell,
The invites are selected by you and printed by the card printer. This is direct contact with printer so it dun involve Jamie.

Hi all,

I went for the food tasting the other day...

The drunken chicken for the cold dish is not good...even my 8-yr old cousin says its yucky..But the gold coin meat,prawn salad,spring roll and jelly fish is OK..so any recommendations?

The sharks fin is also so-so only...acceptable.

The steamfish gourapa..traditional style, is very salty... :-( (so this i change to just normal steamfish)

Best is the garlic chicken, Yam ring and yam desset.

Mine is a 8-course meal.. we have 3 males, 1 boy n 4 ladies for the food tasting, the portion is just nice. so was worried if one whole table of guys, is it eough?

Hi bubble-bell,
Dun need, coz its inclusive in the agreed % of invite cards. You will need to pay the card supplier $ for the insert printing, which is not included. I also paid them to tie the gold string for me too. (to save the trouble of doing it myself :p)
Er, Unless you have your own printer which is cheaper, then you can discuss with Jamie to see if you can swap the invite cards for anything else.

Hi Nini,

For cold dish I took all the same items as you. Initially took the baby octopus, but all said not nice so changed that for the gold coin meat.
The drunken chicken, everyone said quite nice so we took that. Hehehe.. diff pple diff taste bah. :p

Hmm....the Sharks fin was good... a lot of sharks fin leh.

Fish I took traditional style, which was ok. A lot of the shredded meat. If you find too salty you can request for less salt. Just highlight to the chef.

Chicken was good. We found it very yummy too. Same for yam ring. :p slurp

We had a table of 10 for food tasting. The portion was OK leh. During our dinner, I had this table of 9 big eaters. they said enough food leh. Few of them had 2nd helping of sharks fin even.

Hope this helps!

Hi bubble-bell

Yes, confirmation onli is 1 week b4 AD, cos there may be changes. Cos once confirm the no. of tables, you cant change anymore. So usually confirmation is 1 week b4 AD.

Like what Shugar explained, Jamie will only provide the printer contact for u, so after that u'll have to liase wif the printer. NCQ will not charge you based on the no. of invites they promised (based on percentage), but u'll need to fork out $$ for the inserts/printing cost.

By then u shd agar know how many tables u'll have b4 u sign the contract. But if u'll need to add in more tables, its ok, as long as you dun fall below the minimum no. of tables tat the ballroom require. For eg. Phoenix ballroom, min tables 30.

Hi bubble-bell

No probs!
happy.gif
So inserts probably around $0.30 per pc, depends on wat paper quality u chose and wat kind of printing u chose (hot-stamping or normal). And also, whether u wanna add ribbon or change the ribbon, also another cost. These are the ones which you'll need to fork out extra $$.

hmmm, firstly... ya.. when u guys talk abt ang bao box.. i realised dat there maybe an issue how to keep it safe ya? hee..

i heard dat some ppl may jus leave the box wif them.. or under the table.. thruout the dinner.. haha.. after dat then bring back to the room ? got such thing ? =/

newae.. hmm... so many suggestions for cold dish items too.. i muz rmbr to take note. keke
but, personally.. i usually go for the prawn salad and spring roll only .. haha.. so the rest.. i dunno.. seems most of u like drunken chicken..and gold coin ?
*and i am v.sure i wanna chg veggie to yam ring. hee.. so many gd comments abt it.

by the way gals.. ncq's dessert - mango sago pomelo .. u gals mentioned smthg abt pomelo season and if it is not.. pomelo may not be nice.. so far, any feedback abt their dessert? or nobody has taken dat?
hee.. dat day i went for a dinner at MM and theirs was mango sago ice-cream..seems v.nice le. wondering if ncq can chg to smthg lydat. keke =P

Hi Stef

Ya i heard some jie meis they kept the ang bao box wif them under the table after the dinner then plc them at the suite. But still i dun feel safe ay...so many ppl at the banquet can c my jie mei holding tat box..errr... :p Oh talking abt Ang bao box, mine sitting in my store now, anyone willing to buy it over frm me? Hehe.

Aiayh..too bad lei..I din get to try the 1st dish, so cant get feedback. Think too gan xiong liao. Busy waiting for my heart to stop pumping. I onli remember the sharks fin tat was serves to us, was generous!!

Btw, ladies who had their AD, NCQ did gave the top tier of the wedding cake ya? Can keep how long ah? Cos i read frm some threads can keep up to a yr in the freezer. Then ur anniversary can take out & consume again. But think those contain liquor, which allow the cake to 'preserve' longer. Cos mine still in the fridge la...So big cant finish la, & super sweet with the super thick sugar coating on top.

Hey Shugar,

Thankx for replying.
happy.gif


The whole table of mine commented the drunken chicken tasted like straight from the fridge..
sad.gif
I think I'll change that to soya chicken instead.. :p

Anyways, my aunt commented our 8-dishes looks very simple.. like not much meat.. *i chose the 2nd menu* And it looks very 'han suan'..
sad.gif


So i think i'll probably add to one more pipa duck to 9-dishes..

Hi Michelle, oh okay...but take 1 time only maybe won't have that effect bah, right?? i think how first...cos one of my gal-frds said eat more "cooling" things to make it come earlier, not a bad idea oso..hee

Hi eemoo,
Dun worry so much 1st coz maybe your 'aunty' may be late? Coz of wedding preparations and all the stress. Mine was 2 weeks late leh. Made me so kan cheong!
sad.gif
lucky it finished when AD came. Phew! Yah, pills should be last resort. Heard its not good lor.

Hi NiNi,

Yup the NCQ dishes are not very big on meat i realised too. But maybe that's a good thing. Won't have the guests feeling very stuffed. But for the dishes like the yam basket and fish there are some shredded meat in them. For ours, the topping on the steam fish was very generous.
Overall, all praises from our guests.

Ya lor..too much it'll be wasted.. but the food tasting i had, really doesnt give me a good impression of the serving size... The yam ring basket is also just nice for 10 adults..

either i get a wok-fried prawns or pipa duck.. wat do u all tink?

Hi NiNi,

Originally, I chose Desire Package. When we went for food tasting, my hubby and MIL also tot that the food are too simple and not presentable enough.

My MIL wants lobster for the cold dish and sea cucumber to be included in the menu. So in the end, we chose Pleasure Package and changed 2 dishes - Roast Platter to Lobster Platter, and Mixed Mushrooms with Broccoli to Braised Sea Cucumber with Spinach. In the end, per table is $833/-. The killer is the sea cucumber....

I have come to realize that wedding is not just between the couple. It is between the families of the couple. So to make the elders happy, we will try to accomodate whatever reasonable comments they have.

Although heartache, but no choice lah. Can't make the groom side look bad mah.

Hey Gals!

Something to check with you. My MIL gave me $1k and asked me to go and choose either a pair of bangles or a pair of rings for the GDL. I asked my dad. He mentioned that bangles/rings are ok if not it is the Si4 Dian3 Jin1, or rather Zhuan4 now.

My hubby was saying that we ourselves topped up some money to buy better stuff. But I rather save the money for paying the banquet. :p

So is it ok if I just buy bracelets instead of bangles har? My sis suggests that I better follow my MIL's suggestion. Haiz........ Wat do you think?

Caitou, i think it's still okay to get bracelets. cos bracelets and bangles almost the same mah. And i think it's better that you take the $$ and buy some jewellery else your in-law will not be very happy.

cos from what i know, for GDL, the in-laws will present your family with the gifts and jewellery, it's like a hao-zhao-tou, and also telling your parents that they are able to take care of you.

Hi Caitou
Ya I agree that wedding is not only within the couple.
Or can I say, couple are the one who pay, and both sides parents play as directors.
We got to listen whatever they suggest to make them feel happy.
