The Grand Unveiling

September 7th, 2014 · 4 Surrendered

The Veil Wedding Gallery, finally reopens after going through a facelift.

It’s an honoured to be invited to attend the grand unveiling yesterday.


All the imported dresses. I touched and felt them… Very good quality! You know one when you hold them. This is the kind of quality you should be wearing for your big day. Too bad those on displayed were very big in size. No size for me, even if it’s altered, it’s still too long and too big for a petite frame. Not 1-2 inches alteration for sure, it’s more than that and it can be problem. Can only go for custom made. Problem with petite girls. Oh well…



Men aren’t left out. Also, pretty dresses must go with pretty accessories. Shoes, necklace, earrings… All these shoes are from White Label, founded in 2008 by Malaysian designer, Hazel Lui.

Of course! Photos with the famous people… How to resist? I felt like an elf! They’re all so tall -.-”

Left: Benjamin Toong, the catwalk guru.

Right: The lovely and talented, Sarah Lian.


Left: Swing Chan, very cute fashion stylist. She’s the only one as petite as I am hehehe…

Right: Winne Then, the gorgeous owner of the Veil.


Left: Guess who was there too! Toh Puan Sri Ragad! Wanted to take a photo with her but no guts to ask hehehe… Managed to shake her hand though. She was the one extended her hand. This is my third time seeing her in person and the first time coming so close to her and shook her hand. Friends did selfie with her in other events. It’s not easy to get this opportunity.

Right: Amber Chia! Need to say more? She’s very humble. Learnt how to pose in photograph from her. Hopefully I still remember the tips she gave, the smile and the pose. Should have written them down. Very useful tips.

Today is open to public with invites. Yesterday was only for the media and VVIPs.

Here’s the highlight of the day, fashion show! It’s been a long time not shooting fashion show. Skill is very much rusty. Lots of editing was done on all the photos. Enjoy the photos.








Love the back. It seems like the trend these days is showing the back design. Not much of skin showing at the back, it’s semi-transparent and with intricate designs. Great for those who have problematic skin at the back just like me.


You know where to go now for your big day?

    Hi Irene, wow! Love the pics here, and you looking good….love that smile of yours. And your long hair, very nice!
    And those ladies, gosh, that girl is sure very tall, and that lady in red…Holy Smoke!
    Bet she turned heads walking into the room.

    Nice veils, outfits too…But of late I notice more and more choose not to have that for the big day, but more a custom designed, or designer dress.
    My compliments to the photographer. Great pics

    For some reason or other not that keen on the men’s suits….never appreciated it being open near the belt, and exposing the shirt.
    Oh well, to each his own.
    You have a nice day.
    Lee.

    Lee, those dresses are designer dresses and all hand picked and brought back by the owner when she went traveling, all from overseas.

    Thank you for the compliments.

    Oh yes… The lady in red, our TYT’s wife. If not mistaken same age as me but our TYT is already 70+ years old.

    I personally don’t like the men’s attire too. I think it’s ill fitted because these men are very tall! Almost as hit the ceiling! At least six footer. The suits are too short for them, it’s not meant for men this tall.

    You have a nice day too!

Surrender Here!
