the Dilemma is back again: A Reception or a Banquet?

Though we've previously more or less settled for a Reception idea but the other place of choice; Riverboat house has its pros and cons.
We're concerned with our guests having sea sick and not enjoying the whole celebration as well as the narrow stairs to climb up to the decks can be relatively inconvenient for ME! oh yes Me la, imagine wearing a nice, flowy wedding gown....it's difficult not to trip over them!

So we are KIV-ing that place and in the meantime going for site recce at other places too.
There's a mini show at Marina Square from 14th to 17th July and we've came across this place, it's one of the restaurants at Raffles Country Club.

OMG the scenery is fantabulous! and the ballroom is as fantabulous as well. (ballroom = Me can wear dreamy gown with long long train..!!)

There's a lake view where we can do our solemnization and best of all, we can do our march-in with a BUGGY!
The Buggy comes decorated as well..

Here are some images I've found online via a blog. From the reviews I've read about this place, it's all praises and how breath taking the scenery is!
Not many is aware of this beautiful place. But here's the set back, beautiful scenery usually means Ulu-ness. it's at the far end of Jurong, very near to Tuas already.
But coach pick-up can be arranged so i guess the venue should be ok?






The above images weren't doing the place justice, I've seen the images at the show earlier, at night, there're tiny lights on the ceilings and it made it look like Stars! so it's very much an indoor location that looks like outdoor..woohooo...


and here's another image of the lake where we can do the solemnization.



The issue now is, this place will be the PERFECT place for a dinner banquet due to its night view. They do have reception as well but it kinda looks weird right? Having reception in this kind of settings.

And the pricing is pretty similar cos reception is charged by per pax.

Tomorrow we'll be visiting Orchid Ville @ Mandai for another site recce and maybe pop by Beau Lieu place as well.

Guess I'll post another recce review summary after tomorrow.

What a Headache neh!!!

Basically we want a venue and celebration that our guests will enjoy and a place that is memorable and unique as compared to the traditional banquet. We do not want to bore the guest with a typical usual chinese dinner banquet where we've got an overdose of...

i guess that can be overcome with some pre dinner activities, the breath-taking view and a nice theme ya?

Our 7 Day 6 Nights Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary Preview

Here's a preview of our Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary for our trip to Taiwan earlier this month in May 2017. You can click on the respective days for a detailed post.

And so we finally embarked on our journey to Taiwan onboard Singapore Airlines! Thanks to Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promo, we decided to splurge a little on the air tickets. The air tickets cost about $1,440 for 2 adults and 1 3.5 yr old.


We spent a total of 7 days 6 nights in Taiwan altogether. But in order to make our Taiwan trip more child-friendly, relaxing,  and to cut down on travelling time, we merely visited the North part of Taiwan primarily - Hsinchu, Yilan and Taipei.

It's never easy travelling with a young one, hence we should not be too ambitious when it comes to planning your Taiwan Child Friendly itinerary. Good thing is, Mr Keir and I have always preferred a chillax itinerary. We're not the type of tourist who loves to jam pack the full day and visit 101 attractions in a trip.

We engag…

The Miscarriage: : the Mini Confinement after Miscarriage

When it comes to confinement following a miscarriage, there are 101 versions of old wives tales to confuse you.
There're people who say (such as doctors and gynaes), since the pregnancy period is short, less than 3 months, it didn't affect our body much so we actually do not need to do confinement.
But my gynae did mention that of course i can try to avoid the cold, icy stuffs still.

And then there will be the extreme ones who'd think going through a miscarriage is more damaging to a woman's body than giving birth itself and hence one must observe the rules of confinement and the best is to do it for 2 weeks.
But think about this, where on earth to get 2 weeks mc? we are only entitled 14 days mc a year leh...

And then there's the reasonable ones and I'm blessed that both my mother and mother-in-law and even my brother's mother-in-law, who runs a chinese medical hall (TCM) belongs to this group.
So naturally, i fall into this group as well.
According to TCM …

Taiwan Kids friendly Accommodation with slides - not your usual list!

And so from a mere idea of bringing Sticky Bean with us to Taiwan, this idea was put into action with Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promotion where you get to pay only $70 for a child's ticket! Though it's not exactly the cheapest option for flying to Taiwan, we thought to pay a little more for better service and not to mention safety since it will be Sticky Bean's first time traveling on a relatively longer flight. Her first plane ride was a really short one to KL, a mere 1 hour away.

If she's manageable on the flight, we can then consider budget airlines such as Scoot or even Jetstar for our subsequent travels.

So why Taiwan?
There are plenty of reasons for our choice other than both Mr. Keir and myself love Taiwan for the food and hospitality. I'm sure you may have come across Awesome kids friendly accommodation with slides and other themed rooms in Taiwan that are trending in facebook. That was one of the many reasons why we want to go Taiwan too!

Alright …
