It's our ROM day on 25 Jan 2013, Friday.
Venue: Park Royal @ Beach Rd, Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant
It was right after my exam, and I was so worried and stressed about the exam, I actually lost 1 whole KG in 2days, 3 meals as per normal though.
Ok, enough about the exam. Its about my big day.... the solemnization.
I have bought 2 gowns online, yup, ONLINE at Gmarket, Qoo10, and I got a hard time to choose either which to wear for my ROM. Some asked me to wear both of them! Although, I liked the idea but I think its pretty lame.
This was bought at $35.70.
I took M size as I knew I was definitely able to slim down to put that on.
Check out at below web link
I would say it quite a pretty dress at such cheap price.
This was bought at $27.90
I took M size also, for the same reason.
Check out below web link
Cheap and good deal!
There are a variety of colours too, can be used as bridesmaid dress too
And so..... after trying and trying and trying.... I have decided to put on .....
Yes, THIS!!!Cos I somehow look a little slimmer with this dress.
I was searching high and low for a compatible heels for my gown too....
And lastly, I found a white heels with shimmery tip...on sale at NEW LOOK.
It was $21.90 if I'm not wrong, and with 10% discount for Citibank credit cards.
Good buy right?
Anyway, just for your information, I'm wearing size 37!
Have bought some simple accessories from Lovisa. Couldn't quite remember the price of the necklaces and earrings. But it shouldn't be too expensive.
Ok, everything is prepared. All ready for the day. Woke up early around 8plus in the morning.
Put on my gown, so that the makeup artist would know what will be suitable?
My buddies were here too, kept complaining that why do i ask them to come so early when the solemnization takes place only at 1pm!!
well well... PRECIOUS sisters lei... Of cos must be there for me ma...
Must check my make ups and hair dos, and touch up ma... tio bo!
Wendy & Rayne
Ok, make up artist has reached, anyway she was introduced by my sister-in law, as she did her makeup and hairdo previously for her ROM too. so well, I trust her skills.
There wasn't any mirror in front of me, my HP wasn't with me, so i have no idea how I look at all....
when my buddies started showing me some signs.. and lame actions...
And so I went to look at the mirror... Oh gosh... too thick!! too dark!! eye liner too dark la...
Machiam BAD woman look, nononono.... so I kept saying I want it light light light... pls change to white eye shadow....
Initial price negotiated was $100. And then, she added eye lashes for me without asking me, and slight fringe cut, it became $130. But, the outcome was not too bad. Check it out....
my face was as WHITE AS A SHEET
Make up done...time to do my hair....
Insisted on having side buns... although my hair was still pretty short...
The sort of like head band thing was actually a necklace bought at Forever21 at $11 if I'm not wrong.
Thanks for Elise, who put this headband thing up for me!
The back view of my hairdo. A little flower hair tie bought at DAISO for $2.
Missing someone from this shot...
Its Shanna... the workaholic now.
The ladies got some gifts for me, and i really appreciated their effort and they are really the ones who will stand by me when i'm down. I love you gals!
They said its for Samuel to Scrub for me... oki doki!
Ok, it was time to set off!!! We took a cab over, and there was a JAM. I was really worried, cos it was already 1220pm and my dad n mum were still not back home yet.
Once we arrived the place, to my surprise, my buddies actually prepared cupcakes for the event.
Cupcake was done by Wendy's friend.
All the little cards pasted on top were done by Wendy!
Here we are!
These cute pretty cookies were ordered by me.
I ordered from a lady online, you guys can check out her FB (Azlina Sabtu)
I have ordered cupcakes from her previously, not bad.
These cookies cost $2.50 each. Not too expensive yah :)
These heart shape cards were done by my bro, Raymond! Thanks!
The wedding favors for the guests!
All our friends had arrived,but the family members from both sides were not here yet. Kan chiongs.
The solemniser had arrived too. About 12.50pm, Sam and his family arrived.... so we took some pictures, trying to drag more time, as my family members were still on their way....
Finally, at about 1.15pm, my family members arrived. So, we chop chop curry pok! and start the solemnisation!
9 roses from Samuel
The flower on the table actually cost $80
Solemnizer Simon Sim
I found him through wedding forum.
When meeting up with him, he actually gave both Sam n I some surveys to do, to know more about each other. Some of the points to take note, etc.
On the ROM day, he was 15minutes earlier than the solemnization.
He gave a speech before we said I do.... pretty interesting...
Solemniser asked: " Friends of Samuel, please raise your hands"
And, oops... there were only 2...... :)
Listening to the speech
The wedding band...
Shouldn't have kiap my arms too hard.. making my arms look pui pui...
Yes, I do!

Agnes B Bangle from my bro, Raymond!
Here comes the dishes... I have never tasted their food, but it was the feel and good feedback on the food, so we decided to choose this place, Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant.
But, after tasting the food, i would say... its really quite important to do some tasting beforehand even though its just a wedding lunch.
The food were soso, portion was kinda small too. The shark fin soup was kinda watery(Forgotten to take photo of it). Probably, we are not used to Si chuan dishes... There were some appetizers, and I forgot how it taste n look like already (Forgotten to take photo of that too).
Si chuan spicy fish
This taste quite alright, a little spicy.
Dong po rou
Taste so so,i would prefer Tung Lok's
Prawn with broccoli
Pork ribs noodles soup

Lastly, their si chuan dou hua.
