first 4D bet

first self initated 4D bet


the left one (new house unit number) is mine and the right one (new house block number) is Mr Ang's...i refused to let him buy the same number as me cos he got bad record of lousy betting during the world cup this year...wahahaha.... but no use leh....also never win.... not even the consolation prize... so sad.... there goes my $5... =(

first step to getting our home sweet home

first step to getting our home sweet home

3rd house viewing was planned with Estella and shermine from orange tee to view some flats in hougang and within 6 hours of viewing our home sweet home, we signed the option to purchase and paid $1000 for it....


like what i mentioned about Mr Ang in the proposal blog entry, Mr Ang works like a bullet train... he sees it, he likes it, he goes for it.... hahaha.... not that i m complaining cos this flat is really one of the nicest we have viewed thus far and we are really eager in getting our own home sweet home....but the high cov of $25000 is setting us back by alot... very heartache ah... make me both happy and moody... took me a few hours to come to term with it lo.... but still decided to get it over and done with... dun like the feeling of hovering over the same thing for long and flat viewing can be really tiring....


anyway, happens that there's an article regarding resale flats in thesundaytimes and the information is rather informative for us....


"the typical legal completion period for an hdb resale transaction is about 18 weeks from the time the seller grants the buyer an option to purchase (OTP)"


so since we had signed the OTP last night (22/10/2010), we should be able to get the key by end feb.... but agents told us last night that by end jan, everything should be cleared.... then cny then reno for about 2 months???....so we should be able to settle in by may or june???? so peeps, start saving up again k??? hahaha...i will need sponsors, more sponsors for my house, cos i will be so poor i may even need sponsors for food items to stock up our kictchen.... hahahaha....


in the mean time, it's house renovation brainstorming and idea time... my favourite past time since 13 years ago.... hahaha.... love to day dream about how my room, my tuition room, my living room, my kitchen all gonna look like.... fun, fun, fun.... =)

obiang bridesmaid's dress

Any bridesmaid wants this?


was in the wedding forum today and saw this...a thread of a bride who bought this dress for all her bridesmaids but decided to change to another design and planning to sell the dresses to any other bride who is interested to get them for her bridesmaids....

I am thinking that the hidden reason why she (1st bride) is changing the design of her bridesmaid's dress might be because this dress is too obiang already till all her bridesmaids threatened to NOT be her bridesmaids if they are to wear this... hahaha

And i wonder would there be any other brides who are willing to buy this dress from the first bride?????? i think they are only selling at $10 per piece....cheap but no thanks for myself... hahaha....i think i will not live till my wedding day if i had bought this for my bridesmaids.... =P

so 姐妹们, you should feel glad that i only set the colours, and in fact, a lot of colours for all of you to choose from to wear on that day oh.... =)

blue evening dress


Evening dress

my evening dress from the online shop elasdress.blogspot.com has finally arrived after 2 months... =)... the quality and workmanship is really good for the price Mr Ang paid for it.... $96 + $22 (delivery) = $118....

really happy with it and i have tried it on no less than 3 times le...all within a week.... that's the good thing about having all the wedding dresses at home.... can play dressing up so often...hahaha....

now the headache is, i think this dress is too grand for me... will i be able to carry it off and would i embarrass myself by tripping over it on the actual day??? hahaha...

anyway, bride-to-be who are interested to order gowns from them, please do it fast cos they are always upping their price... this dress now cost $169 (without delivery charges) just after 2 months...




updates from 6 May 2012:
this dress cost $338 without delivery charges now!!!.... i m indeed a lucky bride to chance upon the website when they had just started the business.... their business must be really good for them to charge such high prices now ah... =P

Corsage

Corsage

Definition:
"A small arrangement of flowers that is either pinned to a woman's dress or worn around her wrist. Corsages are often worn by the mothers and grandmothers of the bride and groom at a wedding ceremony."

How come it's so different from what i know??? hahaha... i always thought that it's for 姐妹s for the wedding gatecrashing... or is it that there's a singapore's definition somewhere??? hahaha...but i have decided to stick to the definition which i m more familiar with... =)

Anyway, me really not in favour of the usual type of flower corsage as it's usually not very pretty and is usually for one time use on that day only.... and i dun really like the idea of having flower arrangement around the wrist... dun think it looks nice and pretty as a whole leh...hahaha... and usually it's provided by the bridal shop or purchase from florist/online shops....

first of all, we din engage a bridal shop... secondly, those prettier corsages selling at the florist / online shops are costing $4-$6 each...so both options are out....then i remembered a wedding blog (http://christineandvitor.blogspot.com/) i read long long ago where the bride customised a bracelet for her bridesmaids instead.... cool right? at least a bracelet is something that will not be throw immediately after the wedding and has a higher chance of being worn out a few more times... =)

so my plan was to buy wedding themed charm bracelets for the 姐妹s ...surf the net and found http://www.beadspage.com/ ... oh no... those which are ready made are so expensive.... so i changed my decision, i decided to buy the raw material instead.... there were so many options ...i spent one whole day browsing through the different beads and charms and tried sketching down my designs.... they looked so UGLY.... hahahaha...

so shelfed the plan...decided to wait for meixiang to complete her japan ship thingy program then get her to do it together with me since she is into the beady craft hobby... =) ..and even if diy, the beads + chains + hooks is gonna cost a bomb too.. =(
then one day, yee li (sec sch fri) was tag in a photo featuring a necklace.... a click and it led me to a website that sells "闪闪发亮 项链 手链 手腕 耳环 戒指" http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2080827&id=1384395891&page=4

browse browse browse...was really very happy to chance upon this website cos their accessories are all quite pretty and i absolutely love the price... hahaha... in malaysia riggit somemore.... double happiness....

so got in touch with ada, the person selling the accessories, and now in the process of doing the ordering, transfer and delivery.... heee... managed to get a malaysian address (thanks to recruit tey) but yet to find someone with a maybank account to help me do the transfer... =(...

but no worries, i will definitely find a way out to make sure my 姐妹s and I receive the bracelets...yes, i like the bracelet so much that i had decided to buy one for myself too... cos free delivery if i spend $50rm and above and 9 of such bracelets will cost Mr Ang $54rm only... =)... good deal hor???

i have ordered the bracelet in white and i hope all my 姐妹s will like the bracelet as much as me or at least prefer it over to the usual type of flower corsage... =) but maybe, maybe only ah, i may add in some personal touch to make it more bright candy wedding theme related.... hahaha...

Birthday Celebration @ MOF

Birthday Celebration @ My Izakaya by MOF (Bugis)
Last day of my attachment at UWC and it's my birthday eve so Mr Ang brought me out for a little celebration.... yippy.... he gave me 2 options - humble house @ esplanade or chinosis @rws... but both too high class for my liking.... hahaha...

i suggested Sweet Buffet @ Bugis ...we reached at around 430pm only to find out that it only reopens for dinner buffet at 530pm which would be too late for Mr Ang as he has tuition from 7-10pm in hougang.... was rather disappointed... roamed roamed around to see if there are other restaurant and chanced upon this.... =)



was very happy to see this poster and went in immediately....
so Mr Ang and I still managed to have a sweet buffet after all... =)
...at affordable prices too....double =)
The $1 top up Chawamushi in a pretty pretty cup.... super yummy too... =)


...The unlimited serving of hot mocha in teapot...


6 out of 10 handrolls that we ordered that got the waitress so worried that she returned to 'warn' us about the surcharge on unfinished food.... she thinks too lowly of Mr Ang's appetite liao... my Mr Ang is a dinosaur with a humogous appetite de oh...hahaha....


cheese fondue with fried salmon, goyza, fried chicken, pumpkin coquette, etc etc...
.... very thick cheese.... love it... super yummy...
even dipped my handroll in as well.... hahaha....

chocolate fondue with apricot, strawberry, yam pastries, mochi, orea biscuit, fried red bean buns and japanese rice balls...

we managed to clear everything...wahahaha...

Mr Ang with his 6th handroll...


birthday girl

with a big big ice cream + super sour mango slices....

Thumb up for the food and the price ($48 for 2 of us) although Mr Ang was rather pissed off with their services ...

they forgot our pancake and my imo ice cream in the first round of order and the first watiress say no ice water yet the second waitress refilled our warm water cups with ice water!!!

wedding favours

...Wedding Favours...



was very happy to see a brown box in my room when i returned home yesterday... although i was super super hungry... i ripped open the lid to view the content immediately ... and was extremely happy to see 250 decks of cards neatly arranged in stacks of 10... =)




quickly took one deck and was briming with joy when i saw the 2 joker cards....
...so cute...




the K, Q and J which i think can be used to play "Happy Family" instead
... hahahaha...so cute loh....





The "Ace" of the different suite designed to represent icons related to a wedding



and after looking through all the cards...all i can say is...if u plan to play "dai di" kind of card games with this set of cards, you can forget about it... hahaha... at most can play "black jack" or "indian poker" kind of games only.... but i still likey them lots lots and am happy with it very much as our wedding favours.... =)

Justice of Peace - Mr Chia Ti Yu

Justice of Peace - Mr Chia Ti Yu

Getting the JP confirmed was no easy task oh...in fact, it was the most stressful project under Mr Ang's charge. When he first sent out email to the list of JPs on 10 June for our first wedding date (18 of December), none of the JPs is willing to confirm.

He was either rejected with reasons such as they will be away on holiday or they are already fully booked (18 dec is a very very hot date for wedding btw) or instructed to submit his request again 3 months before the actual day. And since then, he is always worried that we wun be able to get a JP to grace our event... getting a JP was at the top of his "TO DO" list for wedding oh... hahahaha...

finally, it's getting close to the 3 months before our actual date (2 January 2011), i sent out an invite to Mr Chia on Mr Ang's behalf.... was rather grouchy about it as it was supposed to be his duty.... but since he had bribed me with his kisses... 我就大人不记小人过,帮他一下下吧... i was very lucky cos Mr Chia sort of agree within a day... However he's unavailable at our preferred timing at 630pm as he had accepted another appointment at that time le.

He gave us two options; 530pm and 730pm. I chose the 530pm slot as 730pm would be too late for the outdoor solemnisation liao... i dun wanna stand there in the dark while getting bitten all over by mosquitoes while i say "I DO"... heee... but i'm also afraid that 530pm will be alittle too hot??? hmmm....
He seems to be a very nice man. He asked if we will be comfortable with him giving a 12-15 minutes sharing on "Blissful Marriage" based on buddhism teaching and if we wanted to have the ceremony in mandarin...he even attached some vows templates for us.... i really hope he can make our ROM ceremony a sweet and memorable one for us....
