hey tannie, better dont get 2 set of bedcot so soon. alot of baby dont wanna sleep inside. get 1 1st.
i bought onli 1 set of bed 1st, 1st month at mum's place cos of confinement, 2nd month will bring back home. once i go back work, baby bed to delivery back to mum's place. will onli get another set if baby really ok sleep inside.
hear too much of my collg's baby end up sleep beside parent or mattress placed on floor.
hubby just told me he will set up in facebook event for friend n collg to ask whether they coming over. in case we order too much for the buffet.
hope to get a bigger house now. then ask my parent to stay w/ us.
Lucky for me the cots are hands down fm friends as they changing to bigger bed.
My mum actually want me to get the sarong yao lan cause she said baby will sleep longer in it bt I refused cause worry baby will not want to sleep when she is in my in law place...
Well we still got to go for check up during confinement, so I think travel for a short distance by car shld b ok... n guests has more space to move arnd, some activities to occupy themselves. Most impt I can on air con round the clock n hide in room.
I will only invite those very close ones... the rest give cake... if invite bosses thn got to be politically correct... thn you will end up inviting a lot of ppl...
will invite boss n close one also. but like alot of close one lei all link together. some more my is 2 branch. think i just send invitation on facebook then see who coming , easier also. cos all collg baby shower they invite whole office n give cake out. evrytime give alot of Angbaos on baby shower or hsewarming. time for me to get some back. last yr i give like every month sure need to give AB or white bao.
By the way, I have a friend's wedding coming up soon, and I dont think I will be able to travel to Malaysia for his wedding. If not I may give birth in Malaysia instead..haha How much should I give as Ang Bao? I never gone for a malaysian wedding before, so dont know what is the rate there.
i got a wedding also on early may. for malaysia wedding normally i dont go, i give S$ 60 or RM$100. their dinner usually held at village school which the most cost around RM$ 400 to $600 per table. restaurant maybe $600 or more. that what i know from my malaysia collg.

i go count on guest list... i got shock!! about 120 guest may come, is only estimated!! for cake i need about 34box plus 4boxs of cupcake for office.. faint!!
Wow 120 is really a lot, if really need to, mabbe you can divide in 2 days? hehheeh ... actually if you dont invite your colleagues, just give them the cakes, some will still give you the ang bao ..
Ha ha, my family usually will split 2 session, lunch n dinner, 1 session for in law family n 1 session for my family . Thn slot friends in either session.
