hi,

you can find these shops useful.

1) the old mkt beside OG at Chinatown, #02. there is a shop selling wedding stuffs.

2) the shopping centre next to the above old mkt at Chinatown. there is 1 'emporium' selling china stuffs, winter clothings, etc. they have a corner selling wedding accessories. but i think it might be expensive.

3) the building beside beauty world, #01. there is this shop congested with plenty of novelty items (eg. for party use, balloons, etc.) and specialising in wedding accesories. prices are reasonable. but shop is vy congested with goods and many customers.

4) go to any shops that sell home cookwares stuffs and these places usually carry some of these wedding teapots and its quite cheap. there is 1 at AMK central, near to Jubilee Cinema, next to the kids' playground.

just go for 1 reasonable set and be expected not to use it again. only good for 1 time use unless you will be using it to make tea and drink with HB... :bangwall::D:curse:

for me, i have it tied up with red ribbon (as required by my mum) for the wedding purpose. after that, i just leave it as it is and now its in my display cabinet. :P

Hi Ladyluck,

i do not quite understand your question : 'any one stop in all?' :rofl:

are you refering to 1 shop that have all wedding accessories? most of the shops that are recommended here have everything in their shop.

juz to kay poh and a note for you:

during tea drinking ceremony, remember to use longans and red dates (if you like coz some ppl don't like red dates' taste but anyway, its juz a sip for everyone only) to boil in water, add a tiny bit of fine sugar and stir if you do not want it to be too sweet.

the water is used for tea drinking. as for the longans and red dates, you can either put in the pot (a few will do so that it does not clog up the sprout and you will find it difficult to pour the tea out) or 1 item each and put in the cups (for show only). this symbolises sweet life for the couple. :rofl:

small details that will make ppl run about and get panicky:

1) place the teapot and cups on the table near to where the elders will be seated while you serve them tea.

2) have at least 4 tea cups juz in case the changeover is fast and if with only 2 tea cups, how to rinse and serve tea at the same time?

3) the tea pourer could be your bridesmaid or any of your friends or relatives who can help out. it will be good if the tea pourer only pour tea, while another could help rinse tea either at the basin or at the tap point. because if the tea pourer is also your hm photographer or 1 of the tea drinkers, you will expect a bit of hoo hah while changing roles.

4) place a basin (small one will do) with clean water to rinse the cups (in case the tea pourer couldn't make it in time to wash the cups at tap point).

5) place another small basin for throwing out the access tea that the tea drinkers had left (most of them juz take a sip and will not finish the tea).

6) if you have youngers who will serve tea to you, you can sip a bit will do. if you are really that thursty, after the tea ceremony, den go drink a big glass of the tea you have made. :sport-smiley-004:

7) remember, the elders will place a angbao for you and hb on the tea tray while some juz give it to you. so when serve tea (by tea pourer), always remember to serve the tea in the teacups on the tea tray and not juz give 2 teacups to the elders. :sport-smiley-004::bleah:

8) if for youngers, you and hb will have to give ang bao to them while they serve you tea. :rofl:

of coz they can use that, provided:

1) if they have elders (parents and most importantly grandparents) who are pan dang or particular about such small details, they will have to change the teapots.

2) must seek approval from elders, most importantly grandparents.

if all are ok with it, by all means you can use that. don't use the chinese brown pots (zi sha hu) type will do. :jawdrop:

so nice of u, to give tips.

don't mention it. i share with coz my family are peranakan and my family members are even more particular about everything. eg. ceremony and rituals, small details, guo da li items, what items for praying, when to pray, pick auspicious dates, wedding cakes, etc to practically everything about wedding. i was so stress up by trying to remember and note down these instructions and all the dos and don'ts.

most of the tea pots set are made from china or malaysia. of coz, most china made stuffs are cheap. as for quality, most of the sets i had saw are of reasonable quality. most of these tea sets comes in glazed type, meaning those shining surface with reflection and some even have rainbow color when you look at them at different angle.

and also all the shops i recommend got quite a few sets of tea sets to choose from. :)

Hi Ladyluck,

today i went to chinatown and happen to see this shop that sells wedding stuffs and they have quite many different type of teapot sets comparing to other shops.

it is located at the chinatown temporary market, sundry section, #01-132, shop name: Tiao Xiang

the shops at this temp mkt was formerly located at the multi-storey mkt at chinatown (the same bldg as CK supermart) and as upgrading was going on, they had shifted to this temp mkt. but from what the owner said, they will be moving back to the old mkt on April 2008 as the upgrading works are completing soon.

this is the shop that my mum went to get all the wedding stuffs for me.

this temp mkt is located somewhere diagonally of Cantonment Complex (i think its police HQ?)

and the best part is this shop's prices are not ex and you can bargain provided you are not pan dang on bargaining for things that are supposed to be auspicious and for wedding.

hope the above helps. enjoy your wedding stuffs hunting session, don't be overstress out, get plenty of help from siblings, family members and friends. :notti:
