My Taobao Wedding with Ezbuy

Today, I wanna share about some of the wedding hauls I got from Taobao through ezbuy!

Red bridal robe in the morning before I change into my first gown. I wanted to wear something nice instead of my usual sleeping clothes because I know the photographer will take photos! It is also silky soft and comfortable! Get it via ezbuy Prime https://ezbuy.sg/product/20000000212522.html

I bought plenty of these decor for the house! It's so much cheaper than getting from the retail shops in Singapore. Each piece is less than $1! You can get it via this link.

My own bouquet is from TheFlowerGodmother but for my bridesmaids, I got these white bouquets from at only less than $10 each via ezbuyhttps://ezbuy.sg/product/20000004548817.html

Wrist corsages too! Each is like few cents only!

Dartboard for one of the gatecrash games. Link: https://ezbuy.sg/product/20000004548841.html

My favourite buy should be this love nest ring holder during the solemnization! There is option to customize the wooden board inside but I decide the default is already nice. It's only $10+ and comes with several colours. Get it here: https://ezbuy.sg/product/20000004548823.html Something different from the geometric terrarium ring box that almost every bride is using nowadays.

Glittery gold pen to sign our marriage cert. https://ezbuy.sg/product/20000004548824.html

And carrot pens for the reception at less than a dollar each! Fits our garden theme just nice plus they are so cute! We didn't manage to get any of these back after the wedding though..... Wonder where they went. Lol. https://ezbuy.sg/product/20000004360374.html

Also got red packets from Taobao! Each piece at just few cents. There are many different designs available and I got mine here: https://ezbuy.sg/product/20000000232120.html

We placed our red packets in this nice pouch!

We also bought a number of things for our guo da li!
Tea set https://ezbuy.sg/product/20000003511444.html

Trays that came in handy.

Stickers. These are really useful! Usually for guo da li we put this double xi sticker on everything!


Also got plastic bags and canvas totes with the double Xi word!

Thank you cards for my bridesmaids...

Floral boxes for my bridesmaids gifts...

Why shop from Taobao? It's way cheaper because shopping directly from the country of origin helps to bypass any importer, exporter, distributor or retailed. I saved so much money by getting some of the items through Taobao!

I used ezbuy Prime, which gave me unlimited shipping fee at only $2.99 each time regardless the size, weight or quantity! Needless to say I compiled all the items in my shopping cart and only checked out at one go! Another benefit of Prime is that it includes all Buy-For-Me services such as Purchase, Inspection and After-sales support + instant upgrade to SVIP membership to enjoy 50% off agent fee!

Something special for you all, Free $10 Shopper Voucher when you register through this link!

Berjaya Tioman Resort Diving Trip

Followed the husband and his friends to Tioman for a short diving weekend last month! With the exception of Maldives, this is the first time I'm tagging along with him on his diving trip!

We set off on Friday straight after work and took a mini bus into Malaysia, and then all the way to Mersing, before changing into a small speedboat which led us out to the middle of the sea to change into a bigger ferry that got us to Tioman. By the time we reached our resort, it was around 3am! I must say the journey was extremely tiring (traveling long distances in the bus) and uncomfortable (strong fan blowing constantly at me in the ferry -_-), to the point that I questioned myself why didn't I just stayed at home.

Well, all became better in the morning!

Berjaya is supposedly the best resort on Tioman island but honestly it just feels like chalet to me. Haha. I can't imagine what the other resorts are like.

Wedding Videography by Istudio

The very first time I saw a wedding video done by Istudio, it left a deep impression on me. It was one of the best actual day video I have ever seen. The editing, the pace, everything. It was romantic, yet not boring. It was funny, yet touching.

So when I was looking out for a videographer for my wedding, I used that video as a benchmark. I looked through some sites and while there are some that are not bad, there was nothing special enough like the one I saw on Istudio's page.

Eventually, I met up with Istudio and got to know more about their operations and was convinced to have them as our videgrapher.

Istudio is a big team based in Malaysia, with clienteles from Singapore as well as China. I liked the fact that it was not a one-man show, and I did not have to worry about reliability.

We had a total of 3 videographers for our wedding. To be honest, their packages are pricier than other videographers in Singapore but if you consider the quality of service, it is really value for money. I think that Istudio's major selling point is that it's a very experienced company and the quality is consistent. I like their editing best, they really know how to bring the mood alive.

We set aside a day before the wedding for a short prewedding video shoot for some clips to be included in our actual day video. We went to Macritchie Reservior for the shoot!

Here's our express video which our videographer Nelson managed to rush out for us within a short time! They even included our 1st march in into the video, shown right after our 2nd march in! So many guests told me they liked my video!

If you are keen, whatsapp Jacob from Istudio +60 12-725 9126 or email to enquiry@istudio.com.my for more details

Check out other videos by Istudio:

In my next entry I'd share our childhood + proposal video which we played before 1st march in and he prewedding video taken in Korea for our 2nd march in!
