the Dilemma is back again: A Reception or a Banquet?

Though we've previously more or less settled for a Reception idea but the other place of choice; Riverboat house has its pros and cons.
We're concerned with our guests having sea sick and not enjoying the whole celebration as well as the narrow stairs to climb up to the decks can be relatively inconvenient for ME! oh yes Me la, imagine wearing a nice, flowy wedding's difficult not to trip over them!

So we are KIV-ing that place and in the meantime going for site recce at other places too.
There's a mini show at Marina Square from 14th to 17th July and we've came across this place, it's one of the restaurants at Raffles Country Club.

OMG the scenery is fantabulous! and the ballroom is as fantabulous as well. (ballroom = Me can wear dreamy gown with long long train..!!)

There's a lake view where we can do our solemnization and best of all, we can do our march-in with a BUGGY!
The Buggy comes decorated as well..

Here are some images I've found online via a blog. From the reviews I've read about this place, it's all praises and how breath taking the scenery is!
Not many is aware of this beautiful place. But here's the set back, beautiful scenery usually means Ulu-ness. it's at the far end of Jurong, very near to Tuas already.
But coach pick-up can be arranged so i guess the venue should be ok?

The above images weren't doing the place justice, I've seen the images at the show earlier, at night, there're tiny lights on the ceilings and it made it look like Stars! so it's very much an indoor location that looks like outdoor..woohooo...

and here's another image of the lake where we can do the solemnization.

The issue now is, this place will be the PERFECT place for a dinner banquet due to its night view. They do have reception as well but it kinda looks weird right? Having reception in this kind of settings.

And the pricing is pretty similar cos reception is charged by per pax.

Tomorrow we'll be visiting Orchid Ville @ Mandai for another site recce and maybe pop by Beau Lieu place as well.

Guess I'll post another recce review summary after tomorrow.

What a Headache neh!!!

Basically we want a venue and celebration that our guests will enjoy and a place that is memorable and unique as compared to the traditional banquet. We do not want to bore the guest with a typical usual chinese dinner banquet where we've got an overdose of...

i guess that can be overcome with some pre dinner activities, the breath-taking view and a nice theme ya?

BTO Keys Collection and BTO Door Opening Ceremony

And so after a long 4 years wait, our BTO is finally ready for keys collection. To be honest we totally forgot about out BTO and was pleasantly surprised to receive an SMS from HDB to inform us of our BTO keys collection date. That was when we frantically tried to hunt for an ID. Ok to cut the story short, here's what happened on the BTO keys collection day as well as what we did for our "BTO Door Opening Ceremony". There really wasn't an official BTO door opening ritual or ceremony in fengshui. I guess this is just a Singapore custom. Though we do not have a religion, in particular, we just did it for an ease of mind. Love the  living room view from our 30th storey BTO view from our Service Yard BTO Key Collection Process at HDB Time took: less than an hour It was a very straightforward and easy process. Here's what you need to prepare, assuming that you are taking the loan from HDB. Identity cards Marriage certificate if you are buying

Our Muji Home Reno Journey | Electrical works and Aircon Trunking

Before embarking on our Muji Home renovation journey, I never knew that the bulk of the work comes from the electrical wiring and the importance of electrical works. In fact, we totally overlooked that part. How many sockets needed and where to place them. Before we selected our ID, we met one of them onsite and the ID just went on asking us how many sockets and lighting point we need in this room, where we need the socket to be located at ...bla bla bla all of these during our first on-site meeting. Trust us, we never had such a pressurising consultation before. Tips for you A lesson learnt from our experience, perhaps before you even meet your IDs or contractors, spend some time in your BTO and visualise how you want to use the space and place your furniture. For us, we thought we can come to that much later when the renovation is almost complete but boy we are so wrong about that. You should already know how many sockets you need and where you want it to be placed from the be

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
