Positive reviews: This place is not bad. The restaurant manager Azman is a great guy to deal with. Good place and cosy environment , the service is good as well. Nicer environment overall compare to passion road, layout is great and the ambiance is just nice. For small intimate wedding, more personal and warm.

Negative reviews: Parking is a nightmare.

MUA | Ally Choong Make Over

I first mistook Ally for a MUA (Wedding Acronym) from Seremban as she had a fair bit of her clients coming from Seremban or Negeri Sembilan. Until I was informed by one of WEDresearch'es readers that she is located in PJ. She does provide bridal makeup & hairstyling services in Seremban as well as klang valley. I categorize Ally Choong's style as artistic and natural. The makeup doesn't look too thick and at the same time the result is pleasing to the eyes.

List of Makeup Artists and Hair-stylists

She is also a body artist. If you loathed the Seni Lukis subject during school days, then you probably won't be able to do this. The canvas she paints on is someone's body, it must be rather challenging I believe. Kudos to her hair-styling as well - very intricate and beautifully done.

WEDreseach comment @ Jun 2012: Had my banquet with Armada Hotel. Besides the newly renovated ballroom, other things were not that satisfactory. Ballroom and foyer looks nice, but the food is not very good. Prawns are very very small that it was an embarrassment to us. Supposed to give us 5 tier champagne glasses but only got 4 tiers. Audio & lighting was badly co-ordinated that my mom had to run in to inform them to dim the lights! Table numbers are wrongly assigned and table arrangement is not as per final floor plan. Some relatives ended up unhappy as they were inadvertently seated at the corner coz of the table arrangement mix up. Being the hosts, we were too busy to ensure the program flow that we didn't expect the hotel to flip out on such details. BAD
jingtaotia @ Mar 2011: we chose Armada as our WD venue due to its friendly hospitality and the PIC Alex was working his best profession to provide us the necessary things we need. Even though the D/P has to be 50%, i can see it worth as they have invested to renovate the ballroom (which is currently in progress), and it looks very Grand especially the lighting and absolutely no pillars in between. FYI: My WD is on Nov Sat, and 1 table is RM1030nett. I booked 25 tables. GOOD
