Wedding Banquet!!

This is a belated belated belated post of my wedding banquet. Realised I forgot to publish it! -.-''

After the morning part of our wedding day ended, we proceed to Swissotel Fairmont to rest for a few hours before the dinner starts. But hubby and I didn't get to rest at all, we were enjoying the scenery and getting hype about the spacious bridal suite for a while.



 Woohoo.. TV in front of the bathtub.

Then we started to check if everything was in place and busy writing the scripts for our speech for the banquet. Before you know it, it's already 4 pm and the hotel served our food.

I ordered sandwich with fries and hubby ordered seafood hor fun. Both dishes were surprisingly delicious! Especially the hor fun! There's also a cake given to us, I remembered it was quite yummy, but we were too hectic that day and we didn't take a picture of it before it's gone!


Shortly after we were done with the meal, our parents came, and my MUA came as well. Hubby started to get dressed to go for the briefing with the hotel manager on the banquet arrangements. What about me? Sat in front of the mirror and let the MUA dolled me up! That's the good thing about being the bride, just leave the other chores to the groom and you just need to stay pretty on your wedding day! LOL..

After an hour or so, it's photo time in my bridal suite!



At around 630pm, I proceeded to the reception lobby to meet hubby and the guests.

Just a few days before our wedding, we decided to have a 2-hour photobooth during the reception so that guests could take photos together and bring the photos which were printed on our designated wedding picture home. We were glad that we made this decision and it was not expensive. We engaged 3Pixy and this was how the photo template look like.


Finally, after a series of phototaking, chatting, laughing, it's time for us to march-in. Hubby and I have already almost used up all our energy for the day by this time.

See our shag look outside the ballroom before march-in





While marching in, it was joyous that friends and families sitting along the aisle helped to throw the flower petals. But hor, throw into the air can a not ah? Got dunno who throw the flower petals in my face and I nearly ate the petals and the petals subsequently dropped into my gown and got stuck at my breast, so uncomfortable! o.O

Okay, so after cutting the cake, I was ushered to be seated at the VIP table for just 10 mins. Before I even managed finish eating my portion of the cold dish. The banquet manager came and invited hubby and I out to prepare for second march in liao!!

Some information for bride-to-be, usually the MUA will leave after they have finished your make-up, hairdo and helped you wear the bridal gown. If you wanted them to stay and help you with your second outfit or help you do a different hairstyle for the second march-in, you will have to pay them separately, unless you have negotiated for it in the first place. 

I have requested that my MUA stayed and helped me with my evening gown and a different hairstyle, and paid an additional $200 for that.

My second look: Princessy..







After presenting the speech which we just wrote in the afternoon, it's time for 'face cramp'. We smiled for the next one hour plus going from table to table taking photos. At the end of it, I'm already seeing stars. O.o We were so happy when it's finally the last table!!! 


But... That's not the end, shortly after the table photos, desserts was served and we had to stand at the ballroom entrance to thank the guests for coming and say bye bye to them. Oh my god, I didn't know shaking hands could make a person giddy. During the process, I realised my brain could no longer think and I could only reply "Thank you" and "Bye bye", and smiled.

Look at how shag we are at the end of everything. Even my fringe dropped! Hair spray also not powerful enough! Lol..


At the end of this post, 
we would like to thank all the brothers, sisters and emcees for helping out. It has been a tedious day, not only for us but also for you guys! 
Thank you papa, mama and family members for the support given to us during the preparation of the wedding! 
Thank you all the guests for attending our wedding and making it a joyous day for us! We hoped you enjoyed yourselves too!
Thank you the photographer, Dick, videographer, Christopher from Forest Productions and MUA, Lili. Without you guys, I couldn't be the pretty princess that day and these awesome photos and videos would not exist! 
Finally, thank you hubby!! For handling all the arrangements that day, and Jiajia can just stone and be the pretty princess without worrying anything!

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…
