Time flies. Was still a chap in Newcastle about six years back. It is all about uni life back there. Fun, fun and more fun. Having pints like daily. Hitting the club weekly. Working part time and full time job for more travel cash. Started my professional career back in Malaysia about five and a half years back. Joining the dreadful rat race. But still having loads of fun. Just about two and a half year back decided to work global in United Arab Emirates. Another excuse for travel. Smile.
Then...Got married just about four months back. Having my ROM Thean Hou Temple, 14.02.2016. Now, gotten myself in wedding planning. My own wedding. Headaches*
The Wedding Reception Venue. Well having so little time in Malaysia last CNY, burning off my annual leave, i have managed to view quite a few venue. Of course with lots and really lots of research and quotation/query requested before i went back to Malaysia. The Venue is one of the biggest task here, you gotta find them quick like a year ahead just incase the "good dates" are taken. And once decided and wanting to book the date you will require to place a non-refundable deposit. Which is not cheap. Thats how problematic the venue is.
I have viewed from Dorsett Subang to Four Points Sheraton to Parkroyal Hotel to Connexion Nexus to Grand Hyatt to Hilton PJ to Sunway Hotel to One World Hotel to Mandarin Hotel to St Giles Hotel to Saujana Hotel to Renaissance Hotel to Palace of the Golden Horses to Glenmarie to Holiday Villa to... finally short listing to this four place.
Galaxy Banquest Hall
Package starting from 1,238+ per table. Huge glamorous hall with a very reasonable price at Sentul, KL. The ceiling lights up like a galaxy during events. Also quite common having company events, concerts and so on. However caters only for huge crowd like 50 tables and above. They said the chef/food are by one famous restaurant in Sekinchan. Guess the restaurant name was "hou hou sik". Definitely have a high rating one.
Empire Hotel Subang
Package starting from RM1588+ per table. Beautiful, catchy and contemporary hall. You can request for design ceiling lightings as per your theme. However quite small with min 25 tables and up to maximum of 32 tables. If your wedding size is about there, why not? Good place. Good location. Everybody knows how to come!
Grand Imperial Royale Ballroom
Package starting from 1,688+ per table. Definitely as the name describes. Royale. Grand design with up to date facilities. Min of 50 tables but they do allow min 40 tables. Good location again. Adjacent to Sunway Pyramid and Hotel. What's more, having food cooked by a famous Chinese restaurant, Grand Imperial.
Eastin Hotel PJ
Package starting from 1,860+ per table. Reasonable huge hall with elegant setting and facilities. Considerable good location.
The picture taken was before functions, full settings and additional wedding decorations. Just to show the actual ballroom. Of course there is plenty of good location out there which i can share with you. Since i have done the research. I have short listed this four venue because of their nice ballroom, good location for us, family, relatives and friends, reasonable price and etc. Want to know where i pick? Well try guessing or wait till my wedding reception =P
