I had the idea during my ROM but couldnt find one. Those in Pasir Ris along Elias Road are mostly for corporate users. Eg for UOB, OCBC, URA staff. You must know someone from one of those organisations and usually need to ballot.

Changi Bungalows are usually Mindef owned.

Civil Servants of certain job grades can ballot for nice chalets in Aloha (chk website)think its www.aloha.gov.sg cant rem. they get it at a very good price. But even if you know someone, got to trouble that person to book, ballot and chk in for you too...

Aloha have beautiful chalets. If you dun have budget contraints, public can get it a the list price which is quite ex, but very nice.

i've seen the chalets in the website (aloha) but i think it's difficult to book

i don't want to risk not being able to book one coz public can only book 2 months in advance

Hi Shyms,

I also have the same idea as you. Will be holding my ROM next FEB in a bungalow type chalet. Right now i'm asking my sister-in-law to book for me cos she is an executive in Mindef.. and i will only know the result in mid NOV.. me now so gan cheong!!
If you have frens or relatives in govt positions maybe you can go thru this website http://www.esrcc.com.sg/bungalow/index.html to have a look.
Hopefully you are able to find one which accomodates your preference.

Hello tweety,
Are you holding your ROM at aloha loyang? I am holding my Rom there!
I have checked with them.
They allow outside caterer for personal booking (meaning not corporate booking)
and they allow decoration as well just as long as you dont damage the place.

Hey Tweety, you can actually check with the coordinator of the chalet. When they gave me quotation of the chalet cum buffet, they did mention they also have florist/deco contacts.

Hi Tweety,

The quotation is on a case by case basis. Thus u have to check with the coordinator. As mine is during the super peak season, thus they were unable to reserve the chalet for me. And thus, i am not able to have my ROM there. Anyway... what was stated in the email is that for buffet lunch/high tea 40pax + Chalet 2D1N (Changi cottage) based on peak period rates is $950nett. They will do a setup for the solemisation table in the garden area. And they sent me the pics previously which i deleted... it's quite sweet. So you can liase with the resort Executive.

Her contacts:
Goh Jing Xian
Resort Executive (Business Development)
aloha resorts
HP : 9787 8095
DID : 6581 9042
FAX : 6582 3714

Hope it's useful enough.

Gelaine.. thanks for the quotation.
I think $950 nett for peak hour is reasonable leh.. Coz the resort on peak period alr more than 100 per nite. Do you know which catering that will prepare the food??

I think i shall call to ask for quotation too.. hehe...

Hi Tweety,

Nope... i dunno which catering they engaged. But the last time my bf had his bdae celebration at aloha and engaged their catering, the food wasn't that bad. And the servings were huge. So i not very sure if it is the same.

You can ask them for the name then ask around... alot of ppl shoudl noe. Hee...

Gelaine, I haven c the invitation card yet leh.. i think my fh will settle it, coz his friend is doing it. I'm not creative enough, so cant do design. haha.. where u intend to do the printing?? heard that JB is cheaper leh..

ya.. on valentine.. but will be crowded on that day and all the flowers go up alot lor.. i afraid cant get real flower to deco the place.. u need to engage deco??
 

gelaine

New Member
Hi Tweety,

Hmm.. i intend to print it in Singapore. Only have about less than 20 cards to print, thus go JB abit too far. U have alot of guests? I got to know place where printing is quite affordable too.
happy.gif


As for deco, i dun need to engage florists or watever. It's all covered.
happy.gif
I suggest you make a booking earlier. My friend also having hers near V-Day on the 12th. She had placed a booking with a florist. =)

Hi Tweety,

I print in SG postcard double side full colour is about $0.85/card.
happy.gif
This shop in Tampines.

HMm as for the price increase for your flowers, maybe you can book with her earlier and bargain alittle lor.... my friend got hers confirmed at normal price. But also prob coz not yet V-Day. But the florist did tell her flowers will be in high demand on that period though. So better let your florist noe earlier. And maybe you can source around more to compare prices...

Hey Tweety,

Yeah i am gonna design the card myself as a 2 sided postcard. Then i will sent it in for printing. Collect within an hour i was told.
happy.gif

If you're talking about a normal fold card,it should be about $1.20 per pc for a double sided full colour.

Thanks

Gelaine.. I don think i'll give wedding favour leh.. I invite too many ppl liao.. will cost a bomb.. haha...

I got the quotation from Aloha liao, kind of dissappointing. I told her to give me the quotation for 80 paz and the caterer's information but she didn lor.. she gave me for 40 paz only. and it's 1100 nett. i think v ex compare to yrs rite??

Hi c@ss80,
I dunno if you can just walk in to the cafe to ask. For me, i was reccomended by a friend, which is why it was exceptional case. My price is inclusive of 30 pax buffet, with rental of the place for 3 hrs. I'm payin about $1200.
happy.gif
I emailed several cafes but was declined. The only one who agreed via phone was The Oaks, which is not exactly a cafe either.
happy.gif


Hey Tweety,

Maybe you can quote the price she gave me to her and say you were referred by a friend? You can give it a shot. I think it's also due to the fact your bungalow is different. The quotation i got is for Changi Cottage and it's actually smaller i guess.

Oh Tweety,

Forgot to add. If you're really thinking of wedding favours, you can just DIY yourself. It's actually not that ex.
happy.gif
But i guess if you're holding at chalet, you can just buy chocolates and put it at the entrance table or buffet table, then put a tag in the bowl that says "Thank you for coming to share my joy". Something along that line. My friend did that too as a replacement for wedding favours. And as for caterers, maybe you can do your own catering coz i know they allow. It may be cheaper.

Gelaine.. they told me that it's case by case. i think coz of V'day that's y more ex lor.. The buffet is same price as outside. just that the deco is more ex.

I think I'll deco it with balloon rather than flowers.. I'm sure the flowers cost a bomb on that day.. hehe.. thanks for yr suggestion. will consider abt that..
 

gelaine

New Member
Hey Tweety,

No prob. Decoration wise dun need to be very extensive also lah. Coz i saw my friend's one at a chalet, the pictures is mainly with family and friends... not so much on the deco too. Most impt is the solemnisation tabel and chairs.. that one nice nice can le... hehe... balloons are nice too. Buy those silvery silvery one... pink blue and white... very romantic already. I see people at chalet do b4... and all can DIY! You need alot of ribbons though...
 

not_firmed

Active Member
Gelaine.. ya, this is what i think of too.. but the solemnization table, i only have the table cloth leh.. i don have skirting leh.. n the seat also i think no cover seat. Now then i worried they don have rectangle table for me leh.. do u know if they have this long table??

Do you know where to get this balloon ha?? NTUC got?? must look ard liao..
 

gelaine

New Member
Hi tweety,

Hmm... Solemnization table.. i'm sure you're ordering catering right? You can rent from the caterers at a cost... since yours is like 80 pax, normally you can get a discount. And you can try negotiate with them for the table cloth too. That's what my friends did and she only had like 60pax or less.
happy.gif
If not, you can try going down to Aloha to ask them if you can rent a table for 2 hrs or so. Shouldnt be very ex. As for skirting, you can just buy a white cloth and use thumbnails to do folds and secure it. I did it for my friend's ROM at home. It's not fantastic but it looks great enuff on photos. No one can tell...

As for balloons, i think you most prob can't get from NTUC. They only have those coloured ones... try look around still. Will be able to find. I'll help u source and see what i can do. Will ask around for you. Meanwhile you can hunt those party shops.

Thank Gelaine...
wao.. u really gives me alot of ideas.. thanks lot.. will try to look ard when go shopping.. haha..

Hey Tweety,
I actually foudn a list of balloons supplier for you... maybe you can call them to check out the prices...
happy.gif
I'll PM you the contacts now... Have helped you email several few others... see if they got reply i'll get back to you. Some of the providers include helium pumping into balloons which will end up costing more. So you can liase with them say you want the unblown up one... then guess you got to ask your hubby to put in the effort in pumping them up. Heh...
