A bad encounter

*This is going to be a long post with no pictures*

As some of you might already know, i went for my bridal photography yesterday, one of the most anticipating event of the year, lol. finally, we were done with all the photo shooting, i can now sleep soundly without worrying anymore =)
of course it was very tiring. shooting started from about 10am until 7pm++. thank god the weather was just nice when we did our outdoor photo shooting.
overall, i'm very satisfy with the make up and hair styles. Mee Khoon did a great job! ;)

Last week, i called up a photographer, Calim, from super, i was introduced to him through my colleague, who had had his wedding in June this year. my intial plan was to inqure about videography for my wedding day in March. he then explained further saying that he can do a MTV for me during my photo shooting day, and it's only RM 50 for the whole day. he said his company is the ONLY company that FT accepted for videography. the price surprised me, so why not? so i thought we had a deal and will be seeing each other during the shooting day.

on Tuesday, he called again to re-confirm the time with me, and he told me he would liaise with FT side, on the video making and so on. Calim seems to be a nice guy (through phone). but my perception towards him changed after a few minutes, when he called me again, asking me is it possible to cancel the MTV?? reason given is, he found out that there's another couple who will shoot at the same time and at the same outdoor venue as me, and they dint bring any video man with them. so if i were to carry on the video making with Calim, then it's difficult for him to explain to the other couple.

seems like there's no other alternatives but to cancel the MTV. i straight away wrote them a complaint email right after hung up. it was such a disappointment to me, as i'm very looking forward to this photography session, as well as the MTV. imagine i came to know about this only on a day right before my actual photography session. as a soon-to-be-bride, i was very upset and disappointed. why dint they arrange things properly in the first place and simply promised me about the MTV?

i mentioned this to the consultant(Justina) at FT and surprisingly, she also had a bad encounter with Calim last month, he promised to deliver her wedding videos but until now, no news at all.
thats not all, what even surprised me was, Justina told me that FT Penang management dont allow any outsider to take any video of the making. so, what did this Calim promised me? what the hell is he doing?!

now, i strongly believe i'll need to think twice before negotiating further with him about the videography during my wedding day. or better still, i might as well look for other video man....


  1. Hayley, I guess you should just cancel Calim and go for new photographer. This type of people likes to break promise one, doesn't worth second chance at all. Don't spoilt you mood, go find new one.

  2. Yan, ya lo, at 1st i thought can ask him as our video man, but now.. i have no choice but to look for another one... =__=

  3. Yes,FT dun allowed outsider to take any MTV. FT will usually provided all the services, if we requested. Even if u hire new photographer oso no use.
    Hopefully tat lil bad encounter won't spoilt ur mood on that day!1. Cheer up gal.

  4. I wish I can help because I'm also looking for a videographer but still have not found anyone.

    I think I would also advice you to look for someone else. For many things in life you can give people a second chance. But wedding is ONCE in a life time thing - no second takes...

    Good luck!

  5. Angeline, well, perhaps i should feel glad that at least he let me know on a day before the actual photo shooting session... its better than to inform me on the actual day itself right?

    Wai Leng, thanks~ all the best to you too!

  6. come like that de?! ==' nvm lar, still have time for u look for another good photographer...wish u All the BEST and good luck...cheer up, gal!!!

  7. Evelyn, ya, i never expect such thing will happen =__=
    their arrangement is so terrible.

  8. Free lancer problem.. hmm..get urself a new video man d lor.. noting much u can do on this Calim man. You didn't pay him yet right?

  9. Ivy, luckily i havent pay him a single cent! haha..

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
