Jess & James Solemnization/Wedding Lunch @ Raffles Town Club

It was Jess & James Big day!!! Attended the event with joy as well as apprehension, because you know why? While I was very very happy for the lovely couple, I was also appointed the emcee with 24hours notice because Jess’s friend put her aeroplane at the last minute. I really dontttttt understand why people can be like that. (=.=)”””’

“Dont you have a better choice???” I asked Jess in exasperation after her SMS. Because while I’m very willing to help her the most I can, I really cant do a perfect job because I’ve never been an emcee before and I’m soOooO terrified that I’ll jeopardize their BIG DAY! I guess it’s difficult to get help at such notice… =(  So yeah, I was the emcee. =/

Immediately after the notice, I dug my lappy for the old emcee script for my own wedding(dinner). But hor, da match leh. Because it’s just very different! And I havent the foggiest idea what to say. I could only do the least by reaching earlier to discuss with the bride and coordinator, Cindy. Erm, in any case, I’m glad everything went smoothly. =P

It was my first time attending a solemnization/wedding lunch at Raffles Town Club and I was so impressed and awed by the splendor of the decor. Everything, just everything was purrrrfffect!! Really! The venue decor, the food, the service, wedding favors, right down to the feather pens, every little or big thing was simply heart-warming and tastefully arranged. I’ll let the pictures tell the story. Spent quite some time organizing them. =P

Absolutely stunning bride! It’s my first time seeing Jess with makeup. Lol.

She has always been a natural beauty and even more so ravishing with her beauty enhanced by make-up. =)

Okie. I know I look fat with my mushroom hair(top and bottom different colours, lol) =P

.

The solemnizer, Mr David Ong did a fantastic job. Should have asked him to double as emcee instead of me la. A dignified-looking man of forties or so, impeccably dressed. I say, he’s a good choice for people who are very concerned with aesthetically pleasing solemnization pictures and well-executed solemnization. =P

When he appeared punctually at the reception, the receptionists asked him whether he’s a friend of Jess or James. One look at him and I concluded he’s the Justice Of Peace. He simply got the “JP look”. Muahahaha. And I said it out loud.

“And I suppose you’re a pop singer?” He asked me back.

I almost fainted at the outrageous assumption. ZzZzz

“No! I’m the last minute appointed emcee. ” I corrected him after recollecting my shock.

“You should join Star Search or something, dont she?” He looked to James for affirmation.

Both of us smiled awkwardly and unnaturally at each other for the ridiculous notion. ZzZzZzZz. That image was so simply so funny, like we’re both forced to smile at something so nonsensical. (=.=)””’

This is pretty bad. So I appeal to old men? Jialat. Hmm….or maybe he should have his glasses checked. Muahahahaha.

.

After the solemnization, we adjourned to The Dining Room for our sumptuous and delicious lunch!

.

Pianist playing in the background….so coolz! =D

.

Now….the food!! It’s my first time having a fine-dining wedding lunch/dinner! Just imagine my delight!

.

Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful!! They simply tasted as divine as they looked!

And this is just the appetizers!! =D

The superb service by RTC staff were commendable too!

.

I chose Lamb for my main instead of Chicken. What can I say? Did you see the perfect pink? =)

.

.

By this time….I was simply so full….that I simply cant stomach all of them…

Not a connoisseur of cheese, the dish was left untouched. Oops!

The ice-cream was wonderful though! It tasted exactly like Rum & Raisin and I’m pretty sure it’s not vanilla! Anyway, it’s okie because Rum & Raisin is my favorite. =D

.

The sorbet was served before the main course.

Cute lollipop given by Jess! It was actually from her “lollipop” bouquet! So cute!

.

Personalized wedding favors!

.

No time to catch picture with the groom, just like all weddings, everyoneeeee were vying to snap pictures with the couple. And I couldnt wait because dearie arrived to pick me. Oh well~

It was a very sweet and heart-warming solemnization and I wish Jess and James an eternal and blissful marriage ever after!! =D

Wedding pictures link

My facebook friends must have find me pretty siao because I not only uploaded all wedding pictures via slideshows at slide.com, I also uploaded 2 wedding albums, namely day and night.

The reason is, I realised pictures dont look very clear in slideshows, at least I thought so. But the good thing is, they’re much more convenient to upload as I can upload them in bulk, like 50 pieces at 1 go. They do take a long time but it’s okay because I can do my other stuff. So ANYWAY, I’ve uploaded some pictures in facebook. They dont look alot to me, a total of 87 pictures, considering I have like 800+ pictures? Daphne uploaded 5 albums okie! Wonder how she did that. OMG, can only upload 5 pictures at a time. Facebook should really improve on bulk uploading. My slideshows have more pictures though, 100 each for Day and Night. Wahahaha. So view both slideshows and albums! =P

Night Pictures

I dont know if it works…well…just leave a comment then.

I missed blogging many movie reviews until they’re like too late to mean anything. But I really ought to comment about “Orphan”. It’s like one of the most thrilling show in the past 1 year I’ve watched. I remembered vaguely the last fantastic thriller was “Drag me to hell”, which was very nice too. “Orphan” has a much better plot and goodness, does all 12year old children from America act that well? I hope not because it’s freaking scary! Isabelle did a good job, she might get nominated I think.

If you haven catch the movie, it’s a must-watch. Box office sales must have been good, for it has been showing for more than a month. I love thrillers. More please.

Fell sick. I hate sore throats and runny nose. Sigh. It hurts even to talk. Dont even feel like talking. Please msn with me instead. =.=

Our Big Day – 16th Aug 2009

Venue: Swissotel Stamford

Erm I know I should probably blog this entry long ago before it became like a thing of the past, but I’m simply too busy and lazy to blog. Hmm Perhaps I will just blog a short one since PG and VG haven passed me the pictures and videos.

I know I should probably blog about only the happy stuff but I cant help having regrets and negative thoughts over some matters.

Like
1) how bloated I am because of the water retention, so much so I look ridiculously plump on my actual day. =( Very sad. So lesson learnt, “try to plan your AD so that it falls at least 5 days after your Big Auntie left”. Sigh.

2) Table arrangement werent fantastic as much as I can help it. It’s mostly my fault because I blur, supposed to place the better seats for JieMei, XiongDi, good friends, colleagues and clients, but end up they were seated so far away from the screen, thus being blocked by pillars. So sorry. =( But now that I speak of it, the ballroom wasnt fantastic lah because of the pillars.

3) Dont have much time to mingle with all my guests because we were so busy. Because of some minor cork up, dinner also started late. I didnt give a wonderful thank-you speech because I dont have time to prepare. But no worry, I’ll thank somemore here!

I’m glad that everything is finally over! I have much thanks towards my jiemeis and xiongdis because if werent for them, I dont know how the day would have went. Chaos I think.

Thank you my darlings! You all look so gorgeous that day. =)

Special thanks to Eileen, my overall-in-charge jiemei who practically is my left and right hand because I’m so handicapped in the bulky ball gown. Thank god she took care of everything else I’m just dead! I think she almost missed the whole dinner because she was carrying my gown all the way! I feel so bad. Must treat her a dinner soon.

Next up, thanks to Grace for being my emcee with such short notice. Things do have a way of corking up at the last minute. She and Edwin did a wonderful job. Thank you!! Oops, I’m sorry the makeup artist didnt do a satisfying job for you. I saw the makeup she did at Shihui’s wedding and I thought she was good. Guess she’s not consistent!

Also, thanks to Shihui for coordinating the IT portion with the XiongDis, montages, videos and everything. Our march in songs couldnt be played because the hotel equipment couldnt read. She had to trouble her dear hubby Alex to buy a disc and somehow fixed the problem. Thank you both else we wont have music to march in!!

Thanks to Kelly and Joy for being my recepts, I know the guestlist was very messy. Thanks to Christine and Tracy for being called as Jiemei with very very short notice, till I’m pretty paiseh! Because some stuff corked up lah. But they were so onz and I’m really touched. =)

Hmm Nothing much to lament, just that I’m still very regretful that I dont look my best that day. HAIZ! And ya, there will always be people who put aeroplanes that day lah. I also dont want to say much lah, just that what goes around comes around.

Suddenly I feel this post is not a post of my wedding day. More like a thank-you speech post. Haha. But I’m glad all my guests enjoyed the food. They’re were scrumptious, especially the sharkfins and baby abalone. Shiok manz. Even the scallops were so succulent..and the dessert, mango sago. Damn. Makes me so hungry again. And the bridal suite at highest 66th storey with the sea view is awesome. =)

Sigh Can I go back to stay again? Stupid manz because I forgot to bring my camera. So blur..too hectic that day already. There were 3 TVs in the suite and 1 of them is infront of the bathtub. Haha. And all the food/drinks were free to consume in the suite. Oh I have a wedding cake too. Took a pic with my handphone. It looked pretty lah but not very tasty. Fondant cake with the interior being raisin cake. Kinda cheapo for a fondant-finished cake, was kinda disappointed leh.

As for my honeymoon, yeah many people have been asking me about it. Haiz But for the time being we’re really too busy to go. Still have to settle GLC stuff. Was thinking of going in dec but dec we will probably be busy with house and reno stuff. Plus I need to be jiemei for Li’s wedding in dec too. Nov also got a ROM to attend. They are great friends so I will make time to attend even though invitations are not out yet. Some friends said they cant attend mine because they got trips or whatsoever. I dont have much to say, just that our friendship were probably not deep enough. It all boils down to the heart really, got xim or not only lah. If you want to come, you will just come. If you dont want to come, there will be hundreds of reasons. =P

For those who haven hold a wedding, you will never understand the feeling until you experienced it yourself. For those who had, woah, it’s so very evil for you to tua us last minute when you know how detrimental it is to the couple. *screwed nose* Why got people like that one? Haiz.

Okie Thus end my post. I’m sure I will recall what I wanna add on to this post after I published this. Haha. But anyway, this is it! We’re married!
