Our Solemnisation Ceremony @ Sheraton Towers

We decided to have a separate solemnisation ceremony first as hubby and I will be going overseas for a 1-year stay before coming back to Singapore to have our traditional wedding.

First of all, we need to engage a feng shui master to select the solemnisation and wedding dates for us. After looking at the online reviews, we decided to approach Master David Tong. After emailing him our details, we met up with him and he went through the dates and briefly explained to us what are the things that we need to prepare. He told us to send him an email again 3 months before our traditional wedding, he will then let us know the auspicious date and time for Guo Da Li and An Chuang.

So after getting the solemnisation date from him, we began to search for the venue and a photographer for the event. 

The auspicious date for our solemnisation was on a Monday, hence, we were hoping to find a nice venue at a cheaper price. 

We contacted Peony Jade at Keppel Bay, Traders Hotel, Sheraton Towers Hotel, Grand Corpthorne Hotel, Hotel Fort Canning, Klapsons, the Boutique Hotel, Singapore Flyer, we even thought of having our solemnisation on a yacht. However, we only needed 4 tables as this was a family event. Some hotels do not entertain such a small number of tables, while some told us that they will just set up a partition for us. After taking into consideration, the menu, the cost, the accessibility of the venue, we decided to hold our solemnisation at Sheraton Towers!

For the photographer, we engaged Daniel Ho who was recommended by my friend. His solemnisation package includes a couple shoot album, choose one photo from the couple shoot to be laminated, 2 hours photography session and he will provide all the soft copies taken on that day.

Feline bridal allows us to use the trial make up for solemnisation, and my bridal package includes a tea dress and groom's jacket for solemnisation. However, we would have to go down to Feline for the make up and change into the dress on our solemnisation day.

After confirming our solemnisation date, time, venue, witnesses and solemnizer, we went to Singapore Registry of Marriage website and followed the instructions there to file a notice of marriage. They gave us a date and time for us to go down to collect our ROM certificate.

Last step, was to get our engagement ring, and we're ready for our solemnisation!

On 7 Jan 2013, we were so excited!! We were not given complimentary night stay at Sheraton Hotel as we have too few tables. We were given a discount though, and we booked a deluxe room. 

We checked in the hotel and at around 3 pm, hubby sent me to Feline Bridal for my make up and hairdo. 

At 630pm, we were almost ready for the ceremony!

The music begun.. We were using 'Thousand Years' as our march-in song.

After that was a series of solemnisation ceremony, signing of the ROM certificate, exchanging rings and muack muack.

After the solemnisation ceremony, the guests proceeded to the private function room while hubby and I hung around with the photographer to take some couple shoots.

Oh, have I mentioned, I loved the waterfall feature as the back drop for our solemnisation ceremony!

After that, it's finally dinner time!

The food served by Sheraton Towers was prepared by the award winning Li Bai restaurant. Food was delicious and our families loved it! The service was great too!

My Favourite Salon: Govin Hair @ KSL City Mall

Do you have the same problem as me? Want to dye, perm, rebond or do treatment for your hair but after looking at the price of the established hair salon in Singapore you just wanna shake head and walk away from the salon.

Lucky for me, I found a good, cheaper hair salon with excellent service and experience just across the Straits! At KSL City Mall at JB!

I had gone thrice and I was very happy with my every experience there!

My first and third time there was for hair and scalp treatment and they were really good! The scalp massage was so comfortable, I literally could fell asleep while they worked on my hair! The most special experience was during the wait at the hair wash area. They provided aroma therapy there by dripping some lavender essential oil into the hot water and I nearly slept.

My second time there was to colour and cut my hair. Oh my! Their hair colour has no ammonia smell at all and I love it! Previously, whenever I colour my hair at other hair salons, the colouring has …

Mucota Omega Rebonding at Focus Hairdressing

I initially wanted to try out volume rebonding at some Korean hair salon in Singapore but the price was really expensive, around $350 for my hair length and I was told that the effect was just like soft rebonding, except that it gives the hair more volume. For my hair length, the hairstylist usually will recommend me to perm the ends to have the romantic Korean feel. But I know I will be lazy to maintain the curls. So I dropped the idea. 

I saw many good reviews online for mucota rebonding at Focus Hairdressing. It's located at Cuppage Plaza Level 1 which is just 5 mins walk from Somerset MRT. I have previously tried mucota hair treatment at Creme Hairdressing (Chinatown Point outlet) and I really love the treatment effect. You can read about my mucota treatment experience at Creme Hairdressing. So i decided to try out Mucota rebonding.

I originally planned to take the mucota dyna hair rebonding since it is the cheapest kind of mucota rebonding that Focus offers, it's only $200 …

Mucota Dyna Argan Oil Hair Treatment at Creme Hairdressing

It has been a long time since I last did treatment and color to my hair. It's to a stage where I already cannot stand the frizziness, dryness, ugly color of my unkempt hair.

I was thinking of rebonding my hair to straighten my anyhow curl fringe and to solve the frizzy hair problem, but I was afraid that my hair will be too flat and look unnatural. I researched online and came across Mucota Dyna Hair Treatment. After some research, i realised the price of this hair treatment charged by some salon for my hair length could go up to $200+ to $300, and I definitely do not feel like spending this amount of money just for the hair treatment.

While surfing on Groupon one day, i saw this.

$108 for Mucota Dyna Hair Treatment for any hair length. I bought it immediately and arranged for an appointment. Over the phone, the hairdresser told me that the time required for this treatment is around 3 hours.

The lady who attended to me was Celine, she was from Taiwan. She was quite nice and gentle…
