the wedding venue decided - a dinner banquet afterall

gosh i've been lazy once again to update the blog. But it didn't take long for us to decide on the venue. all the site visit can get really tiring, and after seeing a few places, you'll kind of know which will be the 'Yes this is the place" kind of feel.

Well perhaps this feeling ain't as strong but then again, it kind of fits into our objective of;
 1) a unique place and memorable for the guest.

Because....

the location is.................

Super FAR!!!! Not many know of this place I supposed, unless you stay in the West. I've read some reviews online from guests who attend weddings there, most of them were pretty surprised by the beautiful scenery over there.

 So I reckon, there's always the pros & cons. if you want a beautiful scenery, most of the locations will be quite out of the way. Both Mr. Keir and myself love the serenity of this place, in a way it was away from the bustling city and the surrounding is so tranquil and calm.

 I've previously blogged about this venue as one of the shortlisted choices, and yes, it's Raffles Country Club!

Nah, not the one at bt timah but the one nearer to Tuas.
From the foyer, you can enjoy the lush greenery from the golf course as well as serenity of the lake view.
And that's right, it's a perfect place to have our solemnization and we'll definitely urge all of our guests to come before sunset to enjoy this view.

Just some additional images;



I'm absolutely in love with the stage set up. By far, I've not seen anything like this in any other hotel's stage set up. One of its unique kind...wootz..


Invited Bro and family along for the first round of food tasting. Look at how elated BB Zavier was!!
The moment we stepped out onto the foyer, he immediately went 'wohh...ooh..Woaaaa.." and kept giving the "good sign".


That's it! positiveness from a 1yr + toddler can't be any wrong. lolx.


Let's take a close up at the stage...




Pretty unique right?




some snippets of the food...


The food was surprisingly good too! not sure if it's cos it's a food tasting session but they are absolutely generous with the shark's fin and crab meat.


THe orh-ni is absolutely yummilicious too!!


And oh yea, previously we were in this dilemma between a dinner and lunch reception but since costs is the Same! We're going ahead with dinner instead.

Though the location is a tad far from the city, we thought the scenery is really good and well worth the journey.

And we hope that our guests will think so too.......

Well, we can't please the whole world, I supposed there're bound to be complains on the location, i guess we just gotta take it with a pinch of salt.


Like c'mon, it's better than holding it in a typical hotel where the ballroom looks almost similar across all the various hotel in Singapore right? Looking at the indoor pics taken, you probably can't remember which wedding it was that you attended!

Our 7 Day 6 Nights Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary Preview

Here's a preview of our Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary for our trip to Taiwan earlier this month in May 2017. You can click on the respective days for a detailed post.

And so we finally embarked on our journey to Taiwan onboard Singapore Airlines! Thanks to Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promo, we decided to splurge a little on the air tickets. The air tickets cost about $1,440 for 2 adults and 1 3.5 yr old.


We spent a total of 7 days 6 nights in Taiwan altogether. But in order to make our Taiwan trip more child-friendly, relaxing,  and to cut down on travelling time, we merely visited the North part of Taiwan primarily - Hsinchu, Yilan and Taipei.

It's never easy travelling with a young one, hence we should not be too ambitious when it comes to planning your Taiwan Child Friendly itinerary. Good thing is, Mr Keir and I have always preferred a chillax itinerary. We're not the type of tourist who loves to jam pack the full day and visit 101 attractions in a trip.

We engag…

The Miscarriage: : the Mini Confinement after Miscarriage

When it comes to confinement following a miscarriage, there are 101 versions of old wives tales to confuse you.
There're people who say (such as doctors and gynaes), since the pregnancy period is short, less than 3 months, it didn't affect our body much so we actually do not need to do confinement.
But my gynae did mention that of course i can try to avoid the cold, icy stuffs still.

And then there will be the extreme ones who'd think going through a miscarriage is more damaging to a woman's body than giving birth itself and hence one must observe the rules of confinement and the best is to do it for 2 weeks.
But think about this, where on earth to get 2 weeks mc? we are only entitled 14 days mc a year leh...

And then there's the reasonable ones and I'm blessed that both my mother and mother-in-law and even my brother's mother-in-law, who runs a chinese medical hall (TCM) belongs to this group.
So naturally, i fall into this group as well.
According to TCM …

Taiwan Kids friendly Accommodation with slides - not your usual list!

And so from a mere idea of bringing Sticky Bean with us to Taiwan, this idea was put into action with Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promotion where you get to pay only $70 for a child's ticket! Though it's not exactly the cheapest option for flying to Taiwan, we thought to pay a little more for better service and not to mention safety since it will be Sticky Bean's first time traveling on a relatively longer flight. Her first plane ride was a really short one to KL, a mere 1 hour away.

If she's manageable on the flight, we can then consider budget airlines such as Scoot or even Jetstar for our subsequent travels.

So why Taiwan?
There are plenty of reasons for our choice other than both Mr. Keir and myself love Taiwan for the food and hospitality. I'm sure you may have come across Awesome kids friendly accommodation with slides and other themed rooms in Taiwan that are trending in facebook. That was one of the many reasons why we want to go Taiwan too!

Alright …
