Review of The Raw Note Entertainment's Wedding Live Band

Many readers have asked my recommendation for a good wedding live band. I must say I am amazed by The Raw Note's in-tune singing. Each of their vocalist sings at the right pitch in a unique musical style and technique. It does not come as a surprise because the vocalists are professional singers who have produced their own albums.

Watching the band perform live at the Setia City Convention Centre was a great experience. I could feel the strong emotions this talented live band created that brought so much enjoyment to the crowd. My husband praised the band's immaculate singing skill when he first heard them played from outside, even before entering the wedding reception ballroom. While the pronunciation of some English words may not be perfect, Si Hui who was the female vocalist has the stage presence to pull off every song with her charisma and good singing. She was also the emcee for the night. Appeared poised and confident, she definitely knew what was going on. Si Hui did a good job at keeping the crowd informed about the ceremony, she made sure there was interaction to retain their focus.

We particularly adore the keyboardist cum singer, Chris. His singing was effortless yet rich with very accurate pitch control. The guitarist Joel was really good. His mastery of bluesy jazz riffs make for easy and comfortable listening. Perfect for wedding events. I am no great musician, however from the response of the guests; the big applause and engagement, you know that this is the wedding live band to go to.

For something different, get the Raw Note Entertainment's very reasonably priced package which includes a live band, an emcee and a magician to amuse your guests with some fun tricks and illusions before and during the wedding reception. It is not over-the-top extravagant performance but sufficiently entertaining to hold the audience's attention.

I have done some research about the Raw Note and found very pleasant reviews about this wedding entertainment service provider. The most consistent feedback is about the versatility of their vocalists line-up. Take a listen carefully to the videos I have posted on this blog entry and it will be known to you what the others have been talking about. They have more talented front-liners with a big range of vocal flexibility and ability compared to other bands. Together with top-notch customer service, professionalism, spontaneity to adapt and an affordable price, The Raw Note Entertainment is definitely worth your consideration.

We really love the versatility of what their vocalists’ voices can do! From the latest radio hits, nostalgic oldies, swingin’ jazz numbers, groovy RnB songs, and all-time popular rock songs, they are able to present them at the best you could expect. They have more than 8 talented front-lines with different type of voice ability for you to choose from, and they definitely have all the top musicians from the scene as their back-lines! One thing that is really convincing is their affordable price where professional, polite and patient customer servicing attitude comes along together. That really makes the whole package worth more than it! We were actually kinda worried about the music volume (as some of us will think that having a band playing on the stage while having dinner will be quite noisy and annoying) but we were surprised that they actually adjusted the volume of the whole performance to a very ear-friendly level where we can hear every bit clearly and still be able to talk without yelling at each other! After the whole dinner, Joanna’s guests claimed that they were really impressed with The Raw Note’s performance!

THE RAW NOTE is possibly the most versatile live band I've seen and heard. They can sing in any languages (english, cantonese and mandarin). I would call them if I have guests from varied background.

BS | Armadale Weddings

I have been researching about bridal shops (BS) in Malaysia and found numerous constructive advices from fellow BTBs. Collectively, you will be able to filter out the non-appealing ones and focus on the aspects you care about the most. Hereby I give you the research outcome and two cents worth of my review.

Armadale Weddings
Thumbs up for Armadale's outstanding customer satisfaction in terms of service, quality of gowns and photography. Recently, brides have recommended photographer Covan. His work has been described as awesome. PG Edwin Tan's work has always been impressive. Comments have it that you have to pay a hefty amount for their wedding packages but they are worth every penny. 

If you have a slightly looser budget, this is a good bargain. The wedding gowns are gorgeous but the collection of evening gown is limited. They have gowns from designer Carven Ong (http://www.carvenong.com.my/) , Keith Kee (http://www.keithkee.com/) and their own in-house designers. The Armadale brides have been saying how they loved their gown collection and you can choose any gowns. In term of service, the sales assistants (SA) in this bridal house have shown very promising customer orientation. There are also no hidden charges. The owner of Armadale, Joanne has a good eye for gown selection and you don't have to worry that you can't find the wedding dress that fits you. You are in safe hands.

The differences are Armadale:
1. Includes ampoule and fake eye lashes (which the regular wedding packages don't) - ~RM100
2. Gives you back all photo soft copies without extra charge - This usually costs ~RM1.5 - 2K

Depending on what you want, this may be a more reasonably priced option for you.

Armadale Weddings service is very good and professional. Jasmine Hue was our wedding consultant and she was very helpful when I was picking gowns for my pre-wedding photoshoot and for my AD. She allows time and space for me to make up my mind and was not pushy. They have some variety of bridal gowns to choose from. Agnes Yip was our make-up artist during our pre-wedding photoshoot, her make-up style was good in the sense that it suited for photography purpose, hair-do was done well. Edwin Tan was our chosen photographer who works for Armadale Weddings and we enjoyed working with him. He is a very patient photographer. He guided us on how to pose and was also very open to our ideas. He is also creative, funny and makes us feel relax and comfortable during the photo shoot.

Armadale adopts a very brilliant business model which impresses me personally. By partnering with above-average/reputable photographers & videographer while offering the rental of limited collection of designer's apparels at flat rate, i.e. no hidden cost for extra photo or so-called V.I.P. dresses as all hi-res photos are returned and all dresses as just as exclusive.
Not only clients get the best of both worlds but the peace of mind on the quality and straight-forward service, i.e. no extra headache on top of worrying about 'what props to use', 'what to wear', 'where to shoot' etc.
Also, another very commendable attitude that we really like about the team was their outstanding dedication and hospitality in giving their best to their clients. When our session actually exceeded 5 hours, we expected to get slapped with an extra bill for overtime (which is typical of many other 'award-winning / high profile' photographers). Instead, Edwin Tan offered to buy us lunch. Joanne, the owner of Armadale, has very good eye for gown selection. In fact, she took the trouble to call me up just to try out a new dress which she believed was a better choice for me and indeed it was!

jus received our album yesterday. it was fantastic end to end service (PS to final delivery)
all well done from 13 Dec 12 til 26 Feb 13... slightly more than 2 mths.
the owner Joanne actually called me up last week to notify me that new dresses are arrived and let me have a 2nd go of gown selection despite having selected my AD dresses a week before.
excellent service from Armadale =)

I'm one of Armadale bride, and so far i'm very happy with their services, even though I have settled the full payment for pre-wed photography months before I collect my album and etc. My photographer is Covan and I did engaged him for my AD photography as well. I'm really satisfied with the outcome of the photos, the album layout design and their services so far. Judy and Jasmine have been really helpful during the whole process and when choosing gown too. Their gowns are lovely too.

I found out abt Armadale Weddings. They r located at Damansara Heights, quite secluded area, but very cosy and private in a way. Not very commercialized kind like those BS at ss2. Since my actual day is ard d corner, they make arrangement efficiently n I managed to hv my pre-wedding shoot taken again within short period of time. Not only they do not categorized their gowns, they dont practise hidden charges too. I got all my photos back in high resolutions :wub: N they r all fantastic!!! My fiance n I were super pleased. Their staff r all very helpful n friendly even after we settled d balance payment. Although I've paid for d other BS for my actual day services, I rather let it forfeited n go for Armadale Weddings. Their professionalism were indeed very impressive.
During my actual wedding day, I've shown both pics n albums from d other BS n Armadale. All my guests love d one from Armadale. Which I felt truly worth it :cheers:
So for all d brides-to-be out there, pls pls pls do not waste your time on those extremely commercialized BS out there. Go directly to Armadale Weddings. I can assure all of u that u wouldn't b regret!

Rumah Kebaya Malaysia

Puan Sitti Nurs is the fashion designer and the lady behind Rumah Kebaya Malaysia (RKM). This kebaya specialist studio not only provides custom-made services and rental of kebaya, it also caters to Pelamin decoration, Make up services and Photography. RKM wishes to deliver a very personal service to their customers and an appointment has to be made beforehand to arrange for a private session with them. For custom-made gowns, RKM will take care of the material such as the fabric and embellishments. Fabric from the clients will not be accepted. Usually the gown will be ready in about 6 months time.  

Sitti Nurs is a specialist in kebaya whose workmanship is absolutely neat, attractive and unpredictable, something really unique and refreshing. Some of her work are like a combination of modern and traditional Malay wedding gowns. Her taste is exquisite. You just have to tell her a rough idea about your dream gown and she will chalk out a classic design specific to your needs. She makes sure she receives the green light on the sketch before proceeding with making it. Her customers love the detailing, color, design of the dresses made by Sitti. The cutting and details make the bride looks slimmer and taller. You can also rent from their ready-made collection if you are not able to book the custom-made one in time.

1st time masa memula dengar,masa di pameran pengantin (yang ke berapa tak ingat dah),masa tu macam, eh? Rumah Kebaya Malaysia? Jual baju kebaya ke di tengah-tengah pameran pengantin? Sekali bila masuk je,wah,ohsem! Serius cantik! Ni kalau ada rezeki lebih ni sanggup ku labur wang ni! Nama pun RKM, sah-sah mereka ni spesialis dalam pembikinan Baju Kebaya! Lebih-lebih lagi Baju Kebaya ni baju tradisional Melayu kita. Memang rugi sangat lah kalau xmerasa pakai sekali seumur hidup kan?
Berbalik pada bakal-bakal pengantin, kalau diperhatikan kebanyakan fesyen resepsi mahupun tandang, ramai memilih pakai chiffon / lace yang penuh beads / mutiara naga tu kan? RKM ni pun tak terlepas dari trend sebegini!

Saya dan Rayza telah ke Rumah Kebaya Malaysia dan membuat tempahan dengan mereka. Founder adalah Kak Sitti yang kecil molek adalah specialist in Kebaya, mempunyai hasil kerja yang kemas, menarik dan unpredictable. Mempunyai citarasa dalam pembuatan kebaya yang tinggi and sangat komited dengan kerjanya.  I only mentioned to her yang saya mahukan sesuatu yang tradisional and saya mahukan warna emas. So she proposed us to go for classic gold and I HEART IT!! Kak Sitti sketch design untuk baju saya dan Rayza and we both agreed with the design. Apa yang saya suka adalah Kak Sitti akan meminta kebenaran sebelum sketch. Sama ada saya setuju dengan designnya. Saya suka hubungan yang begitu sebab kadang-kadang ada sesetengah designer yang sentiasa rasa diri betul and tak nak dengar pendapat and apa kemahuan pengantin. Kak Sitti turut memberi tips pelamin, solekan and aksesori bagaimana yang bersesuaian untuk menaikkan seri pengantin semasa memakai pakaian yang saya tempah. Saya SANGAT JATUH CINTA DENGAN BAJU SAYA. More than what I expected. She also gave me the shoes yang kena dengan baju saya. I LOVE everything about the dress and the shoes. The detailing, color, design. ALL. And as I mentioned before, saya nampak slim and tinggi. ACHIEVE!! hahaha. So anyone apa yang boleh saya cakapkan adalah it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Kamu akan rasa SUPER SATISFIED and tak sabar-sabar untuk memakainya. Seriously. Oh ye, Rumah Kebaya Malaysia mempunyai kuota mereka sendiri. Mereka hanya mengambil tempahan untuk baju baru sebanyak 5 tempahan sahaja. Kebiasaanya mereka akan fully booked dalam kadar yang cepat. That is why saya dengan cepatnya tempah baju SUPER AWAL hahahah.

Positive reviews: To buy the gowns, pricing is surprisingly cheap. They range from RM799 to RM1699 for the bridal gowns (most made in China). The bridesmaids dresses range from RM100-200 and some evening gowns at RM499. Love the white gown with flowers at the chest lining which looks elegant.

Negative reviews: Not very extensive selection of gowns,  quite a lot of faux cubic zirconia (artificial/ synthetic cubic zirconia which is a type gemstone similar to diamond) on the bodices, which some brides may not like.

bridezilla @ Jul 2012
Main aim - look for a dress. We were met by a Steven Cheong (whose name card says Operation Manager), a somewhat quiet and reserved character who took us upstairs on our request to see the gowns. (He probably thought we were spies, but what the heck, can't you see the ring on my finger?!) Not a very extensive selection from what I could see. Most of the gowns were A-line strapless tube tops with beaded bodices and an assortment of skirt materials - creamy thick satin, can can. I quite detest those layered skirts that remind me of anything except how I want to look like on my wedding day, so about half the selection is out. There were about 7-8 metal rows, and on my estimate of about 10 gowns a row, you've got about 70-80 gowns upstairs? And about 60% was white. Some use quite a lot of faux cubic zirconia on the bodices which again I don't quite like (and herein is the disclaimer - views expressed are the author's opinions and you can't kill sue murder fault anyone for having an opinion) Pricing? Surprisingly cheap. They tag the sale prices onto the gowns (which I initially mistook for rental prices!) - and they range from RM799 to RM1699 for the bridal gowns (most made in China). The bridesmaids dresses range from RM100-200 and I saw some evening gowns at RM499. Selection quite limited though.

I love the white gown with flowers at the chest lining. It looked so elegant when I saw one of my friend wore it on her wedding day ! =)) They certainly do have a taste in their selection of gowns especially those simple yet elegant kind of gown.

Dynasty Dragon Seafood 皇龍海鲜大酒家 | SStwo Mall

This has been closed down
Positive Reviews: Nicely decorated, clean and bright. The place is quite spacious and comfortable with great view and well-decorated. They have a small rooftop pool outside of the restaurant, that can be used for cocktail party. Three small rooms can be opened up into one big room, which is appropriate for an intimate reception. One big room can accommodate up to 25 tables, whereas the common area (outside of the rooms) can accommodate up to 45 tables.  The dishes served was pretty good, in term of taste. The waiters are really helpful and polite. Parking is easy as they have a multi-level carpark. Price is acceptable.

Negative Reviews: Had difficulty finding the restaurant, which is located on the top floor of the mall. The Restaurant entrance is confusing. The mall looks new but empty. The reflection of the ceiling lights was pretty intense and too bright. Too many pillars in the hall. Might be able to hear the noise from another wedding celebration going-on in the common area and share the banquet hall with other married couples or walk-in guests if wedding is small. They do have a smaller banquet hall outside, the condition is not that ideal although it's more private compared to the rooms in the common area. Seafood is not very fresh.

We arrived and parked, but had difficulty finding the restaurant, which is located on the top floor of the building. The mall itself looks new but empty. Our biggest concern was, the restaurant may close-down in a couple of months due to lack of patronage in the mall.
The restaurant in use is nicely decorated, clean and bright. The flooring was tiled all the way (the reflection of the ceiling lights were pretty intense for me), including the banquet rooms. They have a small rooftop pool outside of the restaurant, that can be used for cocktail hour on a non-rainy day. Three small banquet rooms can be opened up into one big room, which is appropriate for our intimate reception. One big banquet room can accommodate up to 25 tables, whereas the common area (outside of the banquet rooms) can accommodate up to 45 tables. This suggested that if we decide to have our celebration in the banquet rooms, we might be able to listen to another wedding celebration/commotion going-on in the common area (which is why I'm opposed to sharing banquet halls with other married couples or walk-in guests).
Price wise is acceptable, considering the good food reviews we found from the internet. Verdict: I believe this venue can be considered if we were having a big celebration. Although they do have a smaller banquet hall outside, the stench of cockroaches is unbearable, and my handsome saw a rat running in the area (eeks!) In addition, we can't accept the layout of the smaller banquet hall although it's more private compared to the banquet rooms in the common area.

I am here, finally at 7.40 pm. This Restaurant entrance are confusing. Sigh. The dishes served that night was pretty good, in term of the taste. Freshest wise for seafood are not that fresh though. Example the fish was overcooked and the prawn in butter sauce was very thick and good, but the fresh was not that fresh. Nevertheless I enjoy my time with my colleagues and friends here.

BS | Mon'Liza Wedding Castle

For a list of other Bridal houses/ shops/ studios, click here.

All in all, BTBs are satisfied with the service of Mon Liza. They appreciated the MUA and PG's (nuptial initial) commitment for the fun PS adventure. The MUA, Mr. One did a fantastic job delivering good customer service and creating amazing bridal makeover.

Their senior PG Michael is the specialist behind Monliza Bridal House's many master pieces. Not all PGs receive the same admiration though. A small number of dissatisfaction come from the quality of certain PG and the product delivery after PS.

After an inspection through the photos I must say they are very unique and artistic! love it. The brides can play dress up and have a princess wedding in a castle. There is a selection of vintage costumes; fashion of the 18th and 19th century, lace, crinolines, corseting and embroidery, for you to look out of this era under the special theme shooting.

Positive: I am not impressed with their sample photos. I find them a bit old-fashioned. What I like though, is that they said that since they have tie ups with a Swarovski jewellery business, they will allow Mon’Liza clients to wear their Swarovski jewels for free during the photo shoot and the actual day.
The package at Mon”Liza was cheaper than other bridal shops I went to so I signed up with them. My package was only RM1888.
There isn’t anything to worry about if you engage Mon’Liza to be your bridal shop. Their makeup artist, Mr. One; their photographer, Michael; and their SA’s Carmen and Wendy are all very nice, helpful and very patient indeed. I have only high praises for them because they have so many customers but they are still able to give each one a personalized service. I must say they are an excellent bridal shop!

Negative: Mon’Liza gave me a lot of disappointments during my gown selection and photo shoot. Before I signed up, I told them I had a particular design of gown in mind and that’s what I want. The SA told me they will have new gowns in that design soon so I decided to sign up. When it came time for my gown selection and I was looking for my new gown, the SA told me to choose another gown instead because that particular design will not suit me! During the photo shoot, on the other hand, the photographer was very mechanical in making us pose for the pictures that the photos turned out awful.

BS | Tom Wedding City, Loke Yew

The first Tom bridal house was setup in Jalan Loke Yew, known as Tom Wedding City. Its package price is somewhat lower. Customers have expressed dissatisfaction about their service delivery. They feel it lacks the exclusivity as there are more than one photoshoot happening everyday for different couples. In some instances, what have been promised cannot be granted due to change of schedules. The quality of the end result is decent, PG David & MUA Jacqueline are good, however there are areas in customer service which need to be improved.

"i'm a Tom Loke Yew's bride @ 2012...i don't know how the service was back in 2010 then, but so far my experience with Tom Loke Yew has been positive. My SA is Helen, MUA is Jacquelyn and PG is CM.

Helen: She talked very sweetly in the phone and was very helpful in helping to choose the gowns...Nevertheless, there were flaws too for example because my sister followed me on the gown trial day, half of the time i was helped by my sister to wear the gowns, not Helen herself. Helen also kept asking me to hire Tom's MUA as my actual day's MUA, although not pushy. Overall, she's ok and easy to deal with. Oh btw, she followed strictly the bill so make sure you negotiate as many as possible and have everything written clearly on the invoice bill.

Jacquelyn: She was punctual on my shooting day. She was awesome!! Her makeup was great and the hair styling was very nice!! And she's fast too in changing the hairstyle. The only thing that I not satisfied was she didn't really made up my husband, only applying the ampoule and style the hair briefly. I would not have problem with this if the other MUA did not made up her client (another couple with the same shooting day as mine)

CM: His photography skill is good, depends on the couple. Which means, some couple's photo may be great, but some may be so-so only. To me, mine is in between. During photo choosing, some photos i like a lot, but some i totally dislike, due to wrong angle which made me look 'weird', haha....There's one point where my husband voiced his dissatisfaction during the photo shooting day (it's not CM's fault though, he was just following the invoice bill), but CM was kind to shoot the extra pose for us. He said he doesn't want his clients to be unhappy. Outdoor photoshooting was great, but too brief. Other than that, he's ok.

Other than the 3 above, I had brief encounter with the other MUA and PG. The other MUA helped me to adjust my gown during shooting at Tom Club (she followed the other couple to shooting, while Jacquelyn didn't follow us). The other PG helped me choose photo (because CM was busy that time) and also offer me options if i wanted to upgrade. i end up upgrade the small photo album from plain to design and additional pose.

Now i'm aiting to see my pictures after touched up and design in June. Overall, I would rate Tom Loke Yew as 7/10 (10 being the highest point) "
