First, let us all marvel at the wonder that is, Jentayu.

OK, moment over.
I knew Jentayu, errr’body knows Jentayu, those that are NOT getting married knows Jentayu. I fell head over heels when me & Z went to THE main wedding exhibition in Expo (I can’t remember the name of said event). Whatever, I go every year with no purpose, lol, well except…the food.
Z never fails to tremble with fear every time I drag him down and dive head first to any pameran pengantin. Trick: Must do a pathetic face, only then he relents.
From the start, Jentayu has been pujaan hati ku. How do they manage to make the next decor vendor look like a drab all the time is beyond me.
Right off the bat, Jentayu wasn’t my first option, since me guts tells me it’s going to be expensive. Fact is, I didn’t think I wanted a decor company at all, seeing that Gurame provides decor and dias.
SO BASIC IT MAKES ME WANT TO CRY:

Being ever so coy, so cunning and so clever, I managed to talk Z into engaging an external decor company. Keith, the Manager of Gurame informed that we can definitely do-away with their decorations and they can offset the price to something else. Nak top up makan ke….nak pay for cleaning services ke…suka hati ikut cita rasa masing-masing. I, for one, was pleased by how flexible Keith was with their wedding packages. Even allowing us to have an extra hour for Nikah! I forgot to mention Keith I know. You guys would like him. He’s a friendly dude, easy to talk to, very down-to-earth.
HOLD UP, GOSSIP TIME!
We were told that Fatimah Mohsin is totally banned from Gurame……like forever! Because apparently FM does not know how to follow rules. Like jangan ketok2 paku on their property…tapi KETOK JUGAK. Ok lah maybe not banned forever, I don’treally know for how long. Keith mentioned it as being a taboo or something. I don’t know if he’s just avoiding from getting his property damaged or if…or if….*** woooo~~wooo~~I mean, Gurame is, after all, located just by the sea.
***woooo~~wooo~~ is a sound made by a ghost. In my head.
Anyway! The first decor company I find myself wanting was Mariah & Shah. Tell me you don’t want them. I dare you.

Oh and they did one at Gurame as well:

My heart skipped a beat, you know in a good way. I knew I had to have them. It was exactly what I wanted. The dais, ahhh..so clean, so simple, not too heavily decorated. I mean would you cover up a sea-view pelamin?? Mad love for M & S. (Lol, nasib baik bukan S&M! haha.)
So I emailed them immediately, and I think they only managed to reply EONS later after which they never replied again. MATI KERING.
So that’s that. It doesn’t bloody matter if you’re the cream of the crop, if you don’t think replying e-mails is worth doing, then I’ll take my money somewhere else, really. I don’t get vendors who just don’t give a shit. At least have the decency to set an auto reply to inform your potential clients that you’ll be away or something. NI TAKDE. No work ethics, none at all. Ape lagi, skip ah jack!
Next contestant, DaunDco & Wedding. Who I have to admit, does a damn impressive void-deck job. You can hardly tell that it’s a void deck, I kid you not!

HOMAHGAAAWD! HOMAHGAAAWD! HOMAHGAAAWD! It’s super pretty, and man, the colors they incorporate into each wedding decor, urgh! Right there, you can recognize effort when you see it. Wanted but, I don’t know. I would have signed their papers in a heartbeat if I were to have a void-deck wedding, no questions asked. But I kinda felt like I had to look for a decor company who has had a hand at the location that me & Z are getting married at.
So that led us back to…Jentayu again.
We met up with Joji, put down a deposit and done! I was happy with my choice, wasn’t ecstatic, but happy. AND THEN I GOT HAPPIER.
A few weeks later, Jentayu posted several photos of a job they did at Gurame. Jempot lah tengok:

Oh did I mention the brooding troll that lives under a bridge, who was with me at the appointment with Jentayu? Yup, he was just sitting there, so deadly quiet, just…brooding. Joji even asked why was he so quiet. * throws hands in exasperation*
And then when we got out of there, he was like, “I gave my opinion what”. NO EH, a 2-word answer is NOT an opinion.
But then member pacified me by bringing me to Changi to eat satay. LOL. I am so disturbingly easy to please.
Aku nak pelamin kelihatan suci tak boleh ke! xD
So there’s that. Settle to the kettle. Could not be happier with our choice of décor company!!
