Hi,

First of all , thanks for piggy to mention of it. I think it is pretty elegant

and classic, that's wat i want(good price too). I just want to have about 230 pax, so it is a pretty good choice. Anyone have more information on their package and information?Have anyone tried on their food before?

Hi! I've got the quotation and brochure here if you want. I can fax them to you, if you want. Please give me your fax no. I got it at the MV Bridal Fair and was very excited over their brochures and concept. But unfortunately when I went there to view the place, it was as I imagined in the brochure. The place was so [B]old[/B]. The doors, tables and cabinets have scratches and marks on them. The carpet was worn esp on the spiral staircase. They wanted us to buy the wine from them.

Make an appointment to view the place thoroughly.

Sorry cant scan and email to you at the moment. The office scanner rosak la. Will try this weekend at home. The dishes are nothing spectacular. The lady said their cook is really good but we havent tried the dishes..so who knows?

Lets see..it says here in the quotation there are menu 1 and 2. Menu 1 is RM888++ and menu 2 is RM688++

Menu 1 - Special 3 Seasons Combo, Sharksfin Soup w Crabmeat, Steamed Pomfret, Fried Prawns with Oats, Roasted Chicken, Mushroom and Veggies, Seafood Fried Rice in Lotus Leaf, Red Bean Soup and Lotus Buns.

Menu 2 is basically the same dishes but cheaper ones like they change the Promfret to Seabass, the Sharksfin has chicken meat instead of crabmeat, etc.

They serve canapes during pre-dinner cocktails and they have 3 tiers edible wedding cake. Their concept is that the guests have their cocktails at the lounge area and you and your hubby walk down the spiral staircase. Then you toast everyone and cut your cake there and then. Later on they will take the cake inside and divide it up so everyone can have a piece for desserts.

I was really taken by this concept esp when I come down the staircase and the guests will be looking up at us...but the place is old. I was so disappointed.

Different people have different expectations and views. Maybe you could get some relatives or good friends here to view the Bankers' Club for you and give you an opinion about it. :rolleyes:

Aiyo, I didnt take any photos cos when I saw the place I already 'mo sum kei'. The salesperson could see in my face that I was not interested. I didnt even try to negotiate for the corkage. So I think that's why they didnt call up to follow up.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that at the time I was there, they were having this graduation ceremony. The ceremony was over and everyone was eating around that place. Tables and chairs were all over the place. People were eating under the staircase, on the piano, etc. So even if I took some photos then, you wont like them... :P

one more bad thing is...my AD wedding is 11th Feb, 2007, it is sunday...they r closed on sunday....


for that place, i think it can be decorated even nicer....it has the potential...(just feel like)..my dad has been the conference there few times, he said the place look ok (if we hire someone to do simple decoration, like flowers and light stand) and it does look old....the food...he said ok lar...

I tried to call them these 2 days , however, they are closed....see whether they can negotiate something or not....

wegness & fusionista,
if you are looking for classic type of location, why not consider Ritz Carlton, saw some pics on their website, looks quite good. It caters up to 30 tables.
neber been there myself though.. =( but i think its worth checking out.

bride2be & piggy:

I think the Ritz Carlton are pretty pricey. My budget is aroun RM 688++ because it's gonna be 100% vegetarian. It's not like they gotta go hunt for a shark in the ocean!!! :lol:

Does anyone know if you can choose the design for the wedding cake that will be served @ Banker's Club? I mean, do we have any say in it like colors, flavor, etc??

You can choose the flavor, like orange or butter. But they only give you the 2-tier cake. If you want to something different, must add money. I saw a couple chose a wedding cake shaped like a big wedding bell. Very nice. :D

I thought that it was a 3-tier cake? :huh:
I was hoping that it would be because those mock cakes that you get at regular hotels are at least 5 tiers <_<

Maybe I can negotiate with them and perhaps just get bring my own cake... and get a price discount.. :D

Oops sorry, 3-tier cake. You can try negotiate with them if you want to bring your own cake. But they would want you to buy wine and beer from them, though. Hey, I'll send you a contact I have that does cute cakes. :D

peipei,

I saw the cakes... doesnt look that edible :P
Check ur mail too...
I don't know if I want to bring my own cake really, let me get my mom or sister to check out a few places for me first. I already heard from Gerrie. She'll accomodate my request by asking the chef to custom made the menu for me... I'll decide when i look at the menu :D
