It has been 2 adventurous days starting with sunday as soon as I got home from the market sms from my youngest sister Aini to have lunch with them at the orchid country club my intention of cooking my crayfish was put on hold.Sharp @12.15pm they came to fetched me and then to fetch Faris my nephew's friend.This is my first time to the club and its a beautiful place nice surroundings of greeneries.Two malay weddings was going on and its really a posh wedding to be held there but bear in mind you must have plenty of $$$$ as I found out from the restaurant that we had the lunch for a function room its $45 per head and at the open foyer its $35 per head....knowing our culture our jemputan will at least be more 500 peoples just imagine the cost!!!Yes it looks nice with all that surroundings but why waste $$ when you can hold the wedding at a cheaper place????
Now that we know what the charges are the next question is how much sumbangan to give?What do you think about this?Any comments and as we usually know the collections you get holding a wedding is never enough to cover the cost and preparations (not that we have to cover the cost)unlike chinese wedding the angpow which we normally give is minimum $80/- because thats what I've been told to give....
Ok this entry about the wedding is how much are we to give????
ooopsssssssss out of topic pulak...back to the lunch...we had it at the Raja Mas Restaurant and its $6.80 per dish per order and we had chicken mango,black pepper crab,cili crab,kailan beef,prawns in oat,sharkfin's soup and steam fish.... then jokingly I ask the uncle if we can sample the wedding food and yes he came back with bryani rice,dalca and acar for us...alhamdulillah.
The lunch is a treat to Wati - remember her?indon maid yang menjaga arwah atok when he was ill and we siblings employed her for that reason so she can look after him when I go to work but atok left us not long after that and Aini took her as 2nd maid to honour atok's wishes as she had to borrow $$ to come to work and now that Wati's loan to the agency are paid for Aini decided that she doesn's need a 2nd maid now so she will be transfered to a chinese accountant a single parent with 2 grown up children.
Pictures above taken @ Orchid Country Club ..... lovely surrounding rite?
I stayed over at Aini's the last 2 nights so thats why I didn't do any update but managed to do some billings though....
Yesterday we went to JB for an errand and I get to open ceremony on my new passport a virgin chop from Malaysia immigration .... hahaha
We just went to Taman Perling infact we were at Perling Mall to have an early lunch @ Sedap Corner which is actaully sedap the food and I had the penang kway teow.....we did a bit of grocery shopping and back to Singapore.
In the evening we met up with maid agent for some paper signing and dinner @ BK and by time we got home I was ready for bed ..........a tiring day indeed and yesterday was a very hot day.
