  6. Is this a reasonable deal ? I paid 50k COV for my new place @ amk central.
  7. Dear all.... Thank you for your suggestions. I have successfully enjoyed my party. Wine and cocktails. Salty plum and lime juice with ice - i bot this from JB and guests simply love it. Oni cost M$7.00 per bottle. 1 bottle can mix up to abt 4litres. Something different fm the usual ribena or oj. Caesar salad w bacon bits and croutons Celery,carrot,cucumber sticks w dip Curry chicken w baguette Laksa White popiah Choc Fondue - strawberry,kiwi,marshmello,banana,cherry tomato,grapes BBQ items chicken wings stingray squids satay sweet potato Every one had a great time, wrapping their popiah, prepare their own laksa and bbqing.The curry was a hot fav as well. But the caesar salad wasnt popular.Choc fondue was loved by kids... and they created a great mess with the choc dripping around. And the next day, i spend half a day cleaning but it was worth it. If you have any party food recipe to share, please post it in this thread. I will be v happy to try them out.
  8. hi...i will be holding my housewarming soon. As its going to be a whole day affair, i was wondering how can my guests enjoy the food no matter wat time they arrive. I am planning now and I need your comments. This is my menu : DIY drinks DIY salad DIY popiah DIY laksa Chicken curry w bread Fresh fruits w Chocolate fondue DIY drinks - juices and cocktails Guests mix their own cocktails. I am providing gin,vodka,baileys,port,whisky,brandy etc and mixers. Or enjoy wine, fresh juices or lemonade dat i can prepare before hand.. DIY salad,popiah and laksa Only the necessary ingredients will be prepared.Guests will DIY whenever they want to eat. Fresh Fruits w Chocolate Fondue fountain for dessert. Anyone tried to do it tis way before ??
  9. Hello.. oh..i really miss the prep time for my wedding. Our wedding favour was hairdryers printed with our names and wedding date on it ! As our wedding theme was black and white, we bot black n white pokka dots paperbags to hold the dryers. Our guests were amazed and we r sure they will value our wedding favours as well... Try to get a memorable gift for your guests and they will definitely appreciate your effort.
  10. Hi storeberry I bought this when I was in Hkg. Costs me about S$40...
  11. I believe the quality of the sofa goes with its price as well. Buy something you feel comfortable and not juz cheap. Sofa is the next most used item in the home besides our bed. And its for your guest to enjoy and relax as well.No point to have a well renovated hse with a lousy sofa.
  12. I m selling my black chandlier. If you are interested, can refer to Garage Sales
  13. I like this Black Granite Top !
  14. Anyone know where to get wine charms ?
