Hi cherlyn, I empathise with you. Sometimes the biggest hurdle to cross is not the in-laws but our own parents. I've had a few issues with my mum and grandma over the wedding preps too, especially the guo da li stuff. I guess you just have to remain calm and talk to her nicely and explain that now that you are forking out all the money by yourself, you would sincerely appreciate that she not demand so much. You wouldn't want to end up in debt just because of this. If not, get your dad to talk to her or close relatives to talk some sense into her. I hope the headache will end soon for you :thumbs up:

If you are conrtibuting to the household expense currently you may use this as a negotiation chips.

option 1

Can one time 8888, marry of next time no more further contribution as you mention,

option 2

Or continue with your current contribution with a discount.

What do you want? Kill a golden goose at a time?

Actually sounds like a good idea....give her one-time 8888 then tell her since u already forked out so much, you won't have any savings anymore and tell her because of this, you are currently in debt, so she accept the 8888, she won't get any more household money from you from then onwards.

I aways like soft approaches. This is a better alternatives /options. Afterall they are senior parents. We should not talk like bussiness. But if time arise and needed to be firmed then we needed to be directive and know what is right and wrong. "Remember we are no longer a children after married" Must give Ang Pow after that :notti:

Ya lor, we are no longer kids but unfortunately to our parents, we are still their little children so they treat us like little children too and wana chup one leg in everything....not that it's bad....

Ya I think remaining clear-headed is a very impt for open negotiation, when both parties are too hot-headed, nothing constructive can be done.

cherlyn, you really need to have a nice talk with your mum, if ever she starts screaming and shouting, just let her be, but you must remain calm on your side. If she sees that you are unnerved by her antics, she would and just might probably stop all her nonsense and listen.

Since you've already gotten to 5888, possible to negotiate for lower price with her?

As for ang baos, by "all" ang baos, what are you referring to? Those jing cha ang baos?? I'm guessing that you couldn't be referring to the ang baos on dinner because u don't plan to hold it right?

Outsiders always can offer you consolation and advice but the ultimate thing is how you plan to handle the situation because we are not in your shoes, so it's easy for us to give advice....i would suggest to speak nicely....if she wants to turn hysterical, let her be.....when she's finished and tired of her antics, then continue trying to talk nicely to her.....

seems like really a lot...

but since she is willing to lower until 5888, is there a chance where she will lower some more? :jawdrop:

i tink she may have done some calculations and ended up the tings will still amount to 8888....

tell her the digits 1688 is better... coz will prosper along the road!
