After the fairytale…

Ea49a1ba When he proposed that night, the song "Heaven" by DJ Sammy was playing at the background and everything seemed so surreal and perfect… almost like a fairytale! LOL!!

Fast forward… 2 weeks later…

Preparing for our solemnization is a huge reality check for us, me especially. It’s like time to wake up and smell life, man!

It took me more than 20 phone calls, countless SMSes and emails before I managed to secure a solemniser for the VERY POPULAR date, 7th July 07. Is EVERYBODY in this freaking island getting married on this same day?!

And locating an ideal venue was hellish too!!

I gave up after receiving too many "thanks for your inquiry, but we are fully booked for that day" reply. So we settled for our Condo’s clubhouse instead. Better still, save the traveling part and it has the utmost convenience and CHEAPER some more. Fuck all the country clubs and restaurants!

Now it is left with finding a catering service. And you know what, is been 3 days and the catering service that I wanted to engage is not contacting me yet! What the hell is wrong with these people, don’t they want business??!!

Damn, I am so stressed up!!

    Hi Fishy! I wanted Purple Sage actually, coz my company used to work with them for events and their set up was quite up to standards and food taste pretty good too.

    But I will try your recommendation, Royal, if this stupid Purple Sage don’t get back to me in time. Thanks for the recommendation. How about lobang for florist?

    Well of cos Royal cant hold a candle to Purple Sage. I wondering hw come they are nt contacting u leh??? Mayb they are busy with the new venture in Shanghai hehe. Well u cn email kristine@purplesage.com.sg, their ofc is near Syed Aliwal (beach rd). Quite a nice lady and get her to direct u to the wedding dept. As this is a very sought after date, I advise u try to get quotes from more of the catering company 1st. As for florist, what’s ur budget?

    U can contact me at 92302812 cos i hv a few contacts i cn pass to u cos last time i was doing solemnisation industry hehe.
