cherlyn, is your mother not working? i notice mothers who are not financially independent mostly tend to ask for more things hor? maybe they scared they old liao no money...

do you have brother? next time your brother marry, is your mother going to give 8888 pin jin also?

since you have a choice whether or not to hold customary, it's still not that bad lah. think nowadays ppl prefer honeymoon wedding. if i had a choice, i will have a rom party with close frens and relatives then go for honeymoon. i will choose to keep the good practices and values of tradition. of cos, hao lian (show off) is not one of them.

cherlynn.. quite sad to read abt ur happening.. but i knw there are such mothers out there.. money minded... my frn's mum is like that... expect them pay for everything and demand a lot...

my mil is also one kind... everything is my hubby n i paying... the ping jing things all we settle... but she did talk to my hubby n explain why he must pay for everything... because she is hsewife no earn money... the father also quite old liao then work those cleaner job dont earn much... what money she gets is frm the 3 children who give her monthly allowance... my hubby is youngest and only son... "lai zai" his sisters older than him by 8-14 yrs if im nt wrong... oldest already have 2 kids ... initially i was very very angry because she keep comparing us to her older daugther & the hubby... sometimes i feel like macham she is marrying off her son to me like that... ahahahaha! the way she act & ask for things like macham the son is girl then im guy marrying him lo... so duh... she likes to comment that the son in law this n that... brag a lot lor i also bth!:thumbs up: i feel like telling her ya la son in law best la. go kiss his a** la! eveyrtime got something she will ask us to go ask him for advise... DUH... macham he so **** smart n cn solve everything lo... seriously he doesnt have a choice because he married their daugther so he has to abide by the mil also!:bangwall: duhhhhhhh anyway she is those very very typical cantonese woman! argHx! she says that time her dotter marry she jus leave everything to the in laws.. nvr ask for anything... they give what jus take... then that time meet my parents to talk abt the dowry they like quite agitated lo... my mum jus mentioned si dian jin then she like wanna hit the roof liao... say is for hokkien! we cantonese only have ping kam... then my mum say okie lor... then we jus say we dunno becos 1st time marry daughter off so ask for advise ma... then she very one kind la... then when we chose our wedding date she also kpkb. argHx! anyway, hubbs explained to me this n that la.. so im jus learning to REN! and close both eyes... haha..

talk so much bad things... nw mus say good la.. hahaha.. she knws i like spicy food n chilli so sumtimes she will cook for me curry lo... my hubby dun eat spicy chilli de... argh... then sometimes i stay over she wil buy me food to eat...

hmm i think its north bridge road.. or south bridge... eh... the behind part of chinatown.. there are a number of shops selling the chinese dried gooDs... they can tell you... then you can go to the temporary people's park market next to the outram mrt.. there is a shOp there selling traditional chinese wedding stuff... like the baby tub, potty, tea sets, whatever you need i do think they have it... you can go ask them what to buy and stuff... usually they wil ask you what you need.. but you cn tell them u dunno ask them to advise but make sure they do not take advantage bah... heh... hmmm if your mummy only wants oranges & cakes, then bao for her big hong bao to make up for the rest of the items lo... maybe can give 1999... she take 1000 and return yr hubby 999... that sort of thing...

when i see pple's photos i also see like very exciting and fun... but i didnt feel it when i went thru it? LOL... jus like faster take n return then oK. finish. hahahA... maybe becos our mei po is his sis and not those typical aunty type to banter... is those quiet type... so all jus sit ard n chit chat nia... hahaha...

Most cake shop will have them but the price differ. For us, we choosen bangawan solo cos it has many shops so it is good for our friends to exchange them for cakes and it is cheaper than the rest.

mei po is my hb's aunty lor. but its good that the mei po's hb is still alive la. chinese are very pantang lor. :dunno:

most cake shops should have wedding vouchers mah; only probably at different values. :bangwall:

there's a shop at sago lane where they sell all sort of wedding things. the people over there know such wedding things very well. you just ask/tell them and they'll know what to get for you. :furious:

you can also buy the "an chung" (choose auspicious date to install the bed before your AD) things from the shop. :furious:
