rockpixs rocks.

Assalammualaikum, BTBs! Am I going to get flak for not updating as regularly as before? I truly apologise for my long absence, although I had previously pointed out that I won’t abandon my blog anymore. After my last blog entry in July, I was so swamped with various commitments and I had no choice but to have a short hiatus from the BTB world.

In Shaa Allah, now I will be back for a while because I have settled most of the work needed by the school (for now) and am thoroughly pleased to share with you about a particular vendor that I had come across while scouring for photobooth services for the upcoming Teachers’ Day Dinner!

Presenting…. Rockpixs Studio-X!

Let me show you some of their work:

On top of the stunning pictures, I was (and still am) very impressed with how prompt their replies were! I contacted Alaina this morning to enquire if Rockpixs was still available during our Teachers’ Day Dinner come September and she replied with such an upbeat disposition, I was sold. There is nothing more I would want than to work with people with good customer service!

Their package includes:

– Customise layout and selection ā€“ May include own theme/logo

– Unlimited shoots and prints with 4R Epson glossy paper

– Fun and creative props provided for use at the event

– Two on-site personnel to assist the guests

– Envelopes provided

– CD-R with all the photos taken during the event will be given

– Photos will also be uploaded on Facebook to allow easy viewing and downloads

In addition, their services are reasonably-priced as well. We are allowed to choose the number of poses and the wordings we would like for each layout, by the way. Yay!

If anyone is interested in their quotation, feel free to ask me šŸ™‚

busy bee.

It’s been two weeks since I last let you guys in on my wedding planning! No, it’s not because my other half and I are planning to bring forward our wedding date (hehe, Another Accidental Bride!) but coincidentally, both of us were really busy with work! Fortunately, we managed to squeeze some time over the past two weekends meeting vendors and paying our deposits.

Raihan from OnceUponImages

When Raihan texted me their studio address, I immediately told the other half, “Wedding vendors suka kerja kat tempat pelik-pelik eh?” because the previous time I met Nora Zee, her office was at Chiku Road and it was the first time I ever heard of such a road, heh. OnceUponImages’s studio was situated at Ubi Industrial Park and I thank my lucky stars that the other half is so gifted in looking for weird, unknown places because yours truly can’t read maps for nuts.

Talking to Raihan proved that we had made the right choice in engaging their videography services. He was very interested in how we met each other and crafted a cheeky smile because he said he already had some ideas on how to storyboard our video. He made us feel really comfortable and I was expecting myself to do most of the talking because the other half is kind of reserved but lo and behold, he did most of the talking while I just sat and listened, haha.

We had chosen the Diluso package, which was frankly, sufficient for us.

And I’m sure most of you have seen their latest work – Arin & Eldila – The Proposal.

Sweet hor. Raihan let us watch this on his iPad. Just when I was about to comment how sweet Arin was to come up with such an idea, the other half interjected my silent thoughts by saying,

“Proposal also need video? Then bila kahwin video lagi?”

Aiyoooooooo. For memories sake, cannot meh?

Hafizah from Purple Plumtree

Meeting Kak Fizah at her home proved my above mentioned theory right – Vendors suka tinggal tempat pelik-pelik (pelik by my standards because I stay in the West hiakhiak). We met her at Punggol and had the opportunity to browse through her latest works. I could tell the other half was impressed because he kept telling me gambar dia snap semua cantik!

She explained to us on the various packages (which are affordable, by the way) and we decided to go with The Wedding Affair, priced at $1500.

AND!

Until 31 May, she is having an anniversary promotion!

Which means our package is actually below our initial budget! Alhamdulillah, rezeki!

Aidil from Comel Molek

We met Abg Aidil yesterday at his cousin’s place at Tampines. His cousin’s place was so cosy and fantastically furnished that I couldn’t help but ogle at the awesome home decor while talking to him. It didn’t help that I have shifty eyes also, chet.

We loved talking to Abg Aidil. He gave us a lot of tips in choosing our wedding vendors and to watch out for hidden costs because some vendors do practise that. I love the fact that he is transparent about his business and he is genuine in making couples happy with Comel Molek’s services.

By the way, did you know that his cousin (who is also his business partner, Abg Lan) owns SEVEN cats? I am in love with cats. If I weren’t a teacher, I would be cat woman volunteering my time with the cat welfare society. And I have 4 kitties at home so to hear that Abg Lan brings home stray cats to call his own, made me love them even more.

Then Abg Aidil told us how the name Comel Molek came about.

Comel Molek is the name of Abg Lan’s first two cats!

If there was a hidden camera somewhere, I swear you would see how my face instantly lit up and how I grinned from ear to ear like a Cheshire Cat upon hearing that. I squeezed the the other half’s hand and said, “We made the right choice. It’s fate.”

Hahahaha. Merepek right.

We were ecstatic just listening to what Comel Molek has to offer and the other half dengan tak sabarnya told Abg Aidil that we wanted full ceiling deco with the centerpiece as well.

Groomzilla alert, yo!

So from now until September next year, we would have to think about what colour theme would work in our favour and which concept we want. I have a feeling I already have a confirmed concept in mind but we’ll see how it goes šŸ™‚

Here are some of my personal favourites from Comel Meow Molek (oh how I love cats):

click and flim.

Truth be told, when I first started my wedding planning journey, photography and videography have always been my priority. I pretty much was set on Kiera Roxanne’s photography because I love how her pictures turn out and how she pays attention to details. Videography-wise, jangan cakap, I am an ardent fan of CST Singapore’s works. Sadly, their price points are not within my budget and after much discussion with the other half, we have decided to settle on the next best choice. Frankly speaking, the other half was uncertain if videography is a need but after I explained (with a muka-kesian-nak-mampos face) that I still watch my parents’ wedding video, he gave in and evenĀ hoped that our future children will want to watch our wedding video too.

I am such a convincing person, I should be a property or an insuranceĀ agent, instead of a teacher, no?

Anyway, here are the chosen ones who will be etched in my hearts and minds forever and ever and ever hahahaha:

Purple Plumtree Photography

How I came to know about Purple Plumtree was purely coincidental. I was feeling really bored one afternoon so I fished out my iPad and started keying in ‘photography’ in the FB search bar. Purple Plumtree stood out because its profile picture is a picture of a Muslimah holding a camera. I clicked on it, looked at the pictures in the albums and I was SOLD! I kept smiling because her pictures were stunning and I really love the fact that it’s a female photographer. Check out her works!

My last picture is my favourite; I love candid pictures!

Once Upon Images Videography

I was looking through pictures from Once Upon Images on their official website, with theĀ objective of finding out more about their photography. However, I was attracted to their videography instead! This videoĀ in particular made me go, “Awwwww….” and I loved how their style and concept is. Simple and clean –Ā Ā just the way I like it! Furthermore, since I’m a bride on a budget, their quotation were reasonable and most importantly, within my set budget. Alhamdulillah!
