Day 2

As continued, pre-planning is very important despite if its at early stage or final stage. Based on my experience, getting a venue for the reception dinner is a big task. Start scouting early, start locating few places. You got to make sure that the deposit is ready so that when you find the best place immediately book the place.
We had tough time getting a venue which we ended up in Selayang. Its like on the other end of KL from my place and her place as well yet we had no choice. There are many places you can check out but initially you have to set the number of guest that you are going to invite.

Its all about budget, you may book a normal badminton hall which will only cost around RM500 up to RM3000 but you have to take into count how you are going to setup the place. Your decoration and lighting will transform the place and that will happen if your budget permits. Nowadays easily a good decoration is nothing less than RM10,000. Of course you can find someone cheaper but will it suit your taste and your theme. If you are looking at setting up the place with a theme such as Arabian theme, black and white, Rajashtan theme etc there are very few decorators in town who can do such deco works. Put in your mind that the cost can go sky high unless if you really have a budget. Like mine, my hall is good enough that I do not need to deco, all I have to do is just some deco at the entrance and some stage background and that's it. Mine decorators will be Resh Events Management (suresh) and I know they can do wonders.

During the process of scouting for decorators, we met some companies which they charge to the most ridiculous price you can never imagine. When you question them why, they will come up with all the technical terms that it will sound Greek to you. You as the customer have all the rights to question them on their quality of product and justification for their price. In order to do this, you have to do some research about them too. The one that we met, charged is around RM8,000 for something that can be done within half the price, educating us on the decorations and we rejected the offer they sounded abit rude too but that's okay. I'm sure I am not on the losing side.

Do you research, ask around, collect name cards of decorators especially when you attend any of your friends, neighbors, relatives wedding or their dinner reception, look closely for few things that might interest you.

Here are some tips on identifying good, quality decorators:

- Touch the cloth that they setup on that day. It can be either silk,satin, jersey material or some cheapskate cloth

- Check and see if they use fake flowers or real flowers

- Take note on the color combination i.e are they using different type of combination for instance gold and black, baby pink and off white, navy blue, magenta etc etc. The typical colors of course will be off white and maroon or white and gold.

- You can also check out how they setup the main table (sometimes the caterers will do it for you)

- Check if they sealed the carpet properly, is there any wires hanging around, check if they are using strong frames

- Get the number and meet them personally. Talk to them, from there you will realize if they have good interpersonal skills. This is very important as they are the one who is going to deal with you until the last day of your event.

- Are they able to answer all your questions and are they punctual

After meeting up, you can always ask them when is their next event so that you can drop by to have a look. Its very important to know on what time do they start the setup on the actual day.

So at this point, you have should have booked the hall and start searching for good decorators who worth the money that you are going to pay. Remember they dont have to big or long in the industry, they just have to be disciplined and creative.



Day 1:

A common question to be asked to a common teenager who have reached late of his twenties is "Are you ready to get married?". I was in an ignorant state thinking I'm way longer to be asked with that question, however without me realizing I am currently at one.

Starting from today 27th September, I have 31 days to the end of my bachelorhood and beginning of the third stage of my life as a married man. Quoting on what Baasha Bai has said
"muthal yetil aadathethu vilayadathethu alle, nee rendam yetil perathethe kalviyum alle
moondram yetil seyathethe thirumanam alle, nee naalam yetil perathethe kolentheyum alle"

Yes what you read is right, I am getting married on the 27th October. Am I scared or nervous, or am I happy or sad? One cant really define the feeling as for all of it are mixed up. Such a mixed feeling. But I know at the corner of my heart, I am extremely excited and happy to think that I am actually going to spend my life after this with my beloved girl, the love in my heart and the love of my life. All these years me being with her have completed me and matured me, changed the way I looked at the world.

First thing you need to do before you plan for your wedding, you need to know your budget. How much are you willing to spend for your wedding. Is your wedding expenses going to be shared by you or your parents OR your spouse or his/her parents, putting aside all those customs and religious statements. Decide on the budget, this will help you to plan your wedding tremendously. You may also have an idea such as splitting the event for instance like how we are doing it. My wedding will be held on a different date and day, early morning hours. Followed by the dinner reception on the same weekend. By doing this, I am able to invite only my relatives and my closest friends and the people whom we would love to have them in our wedding. According to your preference, its in your hands to limit the crowd. It can be from 50 people up to 200 people, but try not to go more than that.

When you plan as such, you will have less expenses for your wedding, less crowd, more manageable, early morning wedding will just finish with breakfast so your food catering expenses wont fly high to the sky. The rest of your invitees can attend your dinner reception. In my case, I have estimated about 1000 pax to attend my wedding. Of course these ideas may not work our if you are planning for garden wedding, conceptual wedding, theme wedding, beach wedding, underwater wedding, cruise wedding and the list goes on. This more applies to typical Indian temple wedding and a dinner reception to cater for larger crowd.

Once you have fixed your budget, start checking on the best date (suba muhurtham - in tamil) to have your wedding. Of course if you plan to have your wedding and the dinner on the same event, weekends would be the best. Some priest from some temple will tell you you cant have wedding on a Sunday or Saturday, but even in that 2 days there will be a good day. What I am sharing with you is how me and my sweetheart planned for our wedding. Doesn't mean that you have to follow this 100%, just like an idea sharing.

Hindu calendar changes every 6 months if I'm not mistaken, they call it the Vazharpirai and Theipirai. Some people follows exactly to that some don't, its up to the individuals. So lets say you got a perfect date for your wedding and everyone is happy on the date, the next thing you need to do is fix the wedding dinner reception date. In my case, my wedding is on 27th and dinner reception is on that following Saturday. Once the dinner reception date is fixed, this is when the adventure starts.

Ringtone, Dingtone!

p/s: Few moments back I was going through Yahoo news and found an article which attracted me and tickled my humor bone as well. The excerpts “It says that the use of "Allah" by Christians could cause confusion among Muslims and encourage religious conversion, which is illegal in Malaysia.” Dey come on lar, are you all for real or what? First thing how can usage of a word change a person’s mind and his thinking towards his own religion which he/she have been practicing for the past donkey years. Secondly since when conversion is illegal in Malaysia? Thirdly if you dick jerkers think that throwing Molotov and stones can actually change the fact, dude you are wrong. All god is one and one god for all. So stop being that shiteating morons and use your minuscule organ called as brain to think how can we live in harmony. Ok I am not going to continue talking about this as this whole article is not about the church burning incident and did I mentioned that I have stopped writing political related articles? Yes, I choose to refrain myself from writing political related articles as I realized that with brains full of tanah-liat, we won’t be able to inject a single drop of sense into them so Rujj why waste time?

Ok now the real deal article. Ringtone. Yes effin ringtone. As now the technology have advanced so much you can just transfer the whole .mp3 as your ringtone. I don't know how many of you realized that there are some “dickyLornaz” who just love to put their ringtone so effin loud till it can be heard from the next building. In my office there are some fler(s) who will put their ringtone so loud where at time I just feel like walking to them and shove the bloody phone up their arse. Anal is fun at time, bytch! If you know that you are in office or meeting, for god’s sake put your phone to silent. We do not want to hear your distorted 50cents In Da Club blasting while in office or meeting. Even worse sometimes, these flers will actually take out the phone out of their pocket and adjust his glasses and keep staring at their phone. Know why? Effin tryin to figure out who’s number is it. This practice is common among some old uncles. You have to answer the phone to know who is calling unless you are making a video call. The technology is not that advanced yet for you to know who is calling from an unknown number. By the time you answer your phone, it will stop ringing and the whole circle starts back again. Believe me though if you have nice ringtone it’s nice to hear but not more than 10 times for the least.

I have plentiful collection of all the songs, so I don't want hear your ringtone. It’s not a cherishable moment. If we are attending a meeting, we are obliged to put our phone to silent or discreet mode. Not only at meetings, maybe some discussions, speech, seminars, cultural shows etc. Based on my experience attending some seminars and talks, before it starts we will be informed to either switch off the phone or change to discreet mode. All of a sudden in the middle of the class or seminar, there will be some Andy Lau ringtone or some shitnoise Pink song ringtone which can breaks my ear drum, goes off. Effker, its killing me! Don't you understand simple English? Put your phone to silent mode! Though I don't do that in my office but at least I will have separate settings on my phone where when I’m in office I will change to meeting mode so the ringtone and SMS tone will be soft just for me to hear it. Can’t you all like do that or your phone is too effked up till there is no settings as such. If you answer yes to this, my best advice would be use your phone as vibrator, or at least a dildo.

I still remember there was I went to a temple, I can’t remember which one as I have visited too many temple and I am a holy person.LOL. On one of the pillars in the temple, there was notice saying “Please do not use your phone in temple unless if you are calling god.” Can you beat that!! That is one good stuff. We should come up with ruling, if your ringtone irritates me then I can take the phone and shove up your mouth for girls and arse for guys. Nah kau L**nca*!

You know right that you won’t be able to get the actual quality one a song when you upload to your phone as the reading bytes for PC and mobile phones is different. That is reason you will find the hissing sound and terrible distortion on your ringtone once you have upload the song to your phone and that is when people like me gets irritated. So the next you would ever want to use a song as an mp3 please think twice and be considerate to others. If you are someone from my office and reading this, I hope we will still maintain our relationship as working colleagues because the last thing I want to have some shit argument with you regarding your ringtone and the last thing you would ever want to hear from me is some vulgar scriptures which I can keep it flowing without stop. Or worst case scenario I will get the lifeless-dickjerkers to throw some Molotov on your face. Satu Malaysia!
