Our Tinghun Journey and Experience New World Makati Oct 7, 2018 #SOHONGryforLove

October 7, 2018- We are officially engaged! After several months of preparations for our engagement and wedding, finally, we get to cross one event off our checklist.


Time really seems to fly by so quickly. I can still remember D's proposal last January. After nine months, we are officially engaged.

The Zen Institute A Medical Spa- Ultralift and Mesolipo for the Wedding Day

Tinghun finally down, and one last push to go- the wedding day. Preparing for both tinghun and wedding may be exciting, but it can also be stressful at the same time. 

A month before our tinghun day, I was worried I won't be able to fit in my gown. It was quite tight that we decided to adjust it by an inch so I can wear it comfortably. Since our tinghun was a very special day for us, I wanted to look good and feel good. We regularly went to the gym, stayed away from unhealthy food and avoided eating out.


Then, I learned about The Zen Institute- A Medical Spa through a former schoolmate. I've always been curious if these non-invasive medical clinics really work. I know for a fact that these treatments cost a lot of money, and results depend on each person. I thought, if results aren't guaranteed, why bother trying it in the first place.

New World Makati Hotel Classic Tinghun Package- SO-HONG Chinese Engagement #SOHONGryforLove

Planning our tinghun was both exciting and challenging. We already have an auspicious date, but what's next? It was time to look for a reception venue. We inquired with a lot of restaurants and hotels, and compared all their packages and offers. Being the frugal person that I am, I considered booking suppliers separately on my own thinking that it would save us more than getting a complete package. Good thing we learned about New World Makati's Classic Tinghun Package that basically covers almost all our requirements at a very reasonable price. Add the fact that the food will be prepared by the hotel's in-house Chinese restaurant Jasmine- one of D's family's favorite Chinese restaurants.


And if you are familiar with most Chinese families, you'll know that they prioritize food above anything else when hosting an event or reception. 

With Jasmine's Executive Chef Wong Kam On helming the kitchen for our tinghun, we were confident that we will be in good hands, and that our guests not only will be satisfied with the taste of the dishes, but will also be satisfied with the serving size of the food.
