Vendor Highlight: Milestones


Preparing for a wedding can be a daunting task- sourcing for a venue, food tasting, hiring the various vendors, planning the schedule and, well, you get it, it’s really a whole lot of things to do! While we may have a huge headache trying to figure out how to navigate through this seemingly intimidating long list of tasks, there are people who are gifted and finds delight in helping you with these tasks (thank God!).

The person I know who is perfect for the job is Mun Tzin from Milestones. Her meticulous and detail-oriented personality is exactly what is needed as the wedding planner to make your wedding a memorable feat, without the headache on your end.Mun Tzin’s interest in weddings started off during her university days helping out at friends’ weddings, contrary to the belief of others who thought she picked it up while planning her own wedding. She likes the role of planning, organising and conceptualising things. Seeing it materialise gives her great joy and satisfaction. Mun Tzin helps couples plan their wedding from A-Z – from sourcing vendors to bringing them to see gown designers, as well as delivering the stationeries to hotels. A wedding planner is not just there to plan your wedding. Mun Tzin has occasionally worn different hats, like being friend, a counsellor, seamstress and make up artist.

Take time to enjoy your day
When asked what are some advice she would give to couples who are planning their wedding, Mun Tzin recommends that couples allocate time to take time to enjoy the wedding day. The saying that goes ‘time flies when one is having fun’ is especially true for weddings, therefore it is important that the couple live in the moment and spend some quiet time together.

Trust is key
Only in a perfect world will you find things running flawlessly. The same can be said about weddings in this fallen world. Things will go wrong, like a slight delay on the delivery of the wedding cake. With that, trust the wedding planner to help sort these minor problems for you and don’t fret over it. Focus on the big picture, whereby everyone is enjoying themselves and after all, no one will notice that the wedding cake is missing for a short while.

Turning 30: Joanne

How strange it is that the older we grow, we realize we’ve never truly left our youth? When my dad was in his 70s, he kept telling us stories of when he was in Kirby College, how he almost got frostbite during a particularly cold winter. Last year, I also celebrated my brother’s 50th birthday…and during that celebration, we partied like he was 20. I am also reminded of my 50+ year old aunt turning 60, but still doing bunny ears in photos.

I sometimes wonder if each of us really does have an inner child within us, even though our exterior doesn’t say so.

Joanne recently hit a huge milestone in her life. She turned 30. An age where you begin to feel that you have this idea of identity all figured out in your life. The 20s is an age where you discover the world is your oyster… you can do almost anything you want in life. Almost. (If only money was not a problem!)

But in your 30s… you feel more secure, confident, and wiser. I like how Joanne puts it…

“I wanted to do this photo shoot cause I’d like to have something physical to look back on, as the years pass me by. At 30, i feel wiser than i was at 20. At the same time, i know I’ve still got some way to go, and life has lots more to teach me. What’s in the year/years ahead?”

Joanne, I hope the years ahead will bring you to more places than you’ve ever dreamed was possible. I hope you also never lose your inner child. One that has innocence and wonder at the world around us. May God bless your journey.
