The Challenge with Oriental

Dealing with The oriental is a challenge. Met up with them on a Friday, emailed on Sunday to let them know my wishes and requested for passes for the Wedding show on the following Sunday. Didn't get any reply or calls despite my followup emails and phone calls. Left two msgs with colleagues and voicemails too, but STILL NO SOUND from Oriental. Wild thoughts ran thru my mind as this is a wedding we are talking about! How can i let these people who have no sense of responsbililty to handle my big day?! I waited and i waited...all the way till Saturday 9pm, finally got a call from the manager. Apologised to me but said i had to pay for the wedding show the next day! $30!!the audacity of him to actually ask me to pay when i was all ready to go down to sign the contract! He later told me, it's mgmt who stated this rule and if i don't want to pay but would like to see their new themes, i can come after 5pm!...what nonsense! i made special arrangements to be available and now he is telling me this?! it made me furious n i told myself i'm just gonna gatecrash! Which i did and i casually said tat I was specially invited by the Senior manager...n there i have it..VIP treatment! =)

The wedding show was pretty nice. but i can't say more for the themes. Kind of disappointing. It's either too White or too Black. Yup..there is this pretty classy theme which is grey in colour but to some, it kind of signifies a secret society's funeral. the other was the Xi theme. pretty cheena...unique...but a bit hard to swallow for me at the moment. we'll see how it goes. anyway, the manager said I only have to confirm theme one mth b4 the banquet. Now all i'm concern is about the grand draw for couples using the Ballroom. The first prize is $10k off the banquet fee!! EVERYBODY PRAY!!!!!...ok, even if we dont be greedy, the second prize is also's $5k!!..third is $3k!....draw will be held on 5th Feb...hopefully we hear some good news then. *keeping fingers cross*. It will definitely elevate our financial woes.
