    Hoping all our members in Florida are well and have managed to ride out the storm.

    Lisa, Elly and Pamela we are looking forward to hearing from you as soon as you are able.

    Phyllis, glad you are safe and well. <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    Jacqueline,

    At a glance, I seem to feel that the solids are costing more in the U.K. At the least I think the X'change rate is something like SGD3.00 to One British Pound.

    I have the price list here of the solids sold in Singapore in case anyone would like to make a comparison… (all in Singapore Dollars )

    Orient Collectibles:

    Dragon $580
    Lanterns $330
    Bejewelled Bottle $350
    Parasol $420
    Pekinese $420
    Elephant $540

    Holiday Collectibles:

    Romantic Moments $160
    Snowflake $150
    Reindeer $150
    Cameo $160
    Owl $160
    Golden Gift $150

    Jay Strongwater :

    Treasures $400
    Butterfly $320
    Pup $480
    Kitty $500
    Flowering Flacon $360

    The X'change rate of Singapore Dollar to the USD is approx. S$1.68= USD1.00

    Hope this helps too <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    Seems the Reindeer is cheaper here ??

    that's the invite card. A private preview event at held in SINGAPORE. also that's another public exibition event be held in one of the dept store in sinagpore

    Actually, the invitation was a separate piece of paper enclosed within. The BROCHURE itself has nothing about the private event, but lists the pieces from the collection and their respective prices. I did not include a picture of the invite itself, simply the brochure.

    In addition, it was held at a hotel – if there is another exhibition to be held elsewhere, I am not aware of it at this point.

    Hi again Jack,

    I managed to add myself on the map. <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    The mistake was mine…. Sorry! <img src='style_emoticons//unsure.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’unsure.gif’ />

    Hi Jack,

    Tried to add in my location but it says the Singapore is not a valid city. <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />

    Is there any way that could be fixed ? <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />

    This a super idea!

    Hi Liliane,

    May I add my Congratulations because you managed to acquire a superb

    piece : <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    And thanks to Ann, for the great information.

    This site is indeed very educational <img src='style_emoticons//happy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’happy.gif’ />

    Thank you all for all your positive responses <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ /> I had fun reliving the experience all over again as well!

    Yes, I had an extremely enjoyable evening and was pleasantly surprised to say the least because this was my very first “Private Viewing”; having had the pleasure, I wanted to share the experience with you…….knowing well that we have some very experienced collectors in our midst ! <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ />

    Catherine, I do agree with you that the “Bejewelled Bottle” <img src='style_emoticons//wub.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wub.gif’ /> makes a lovely solid and as some of the customers here remarked it would pair very well with the “Venetian Fan”.

    I wished I could have purchased the whole Oriental range <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ /> but then I was able to locate the “Imperial Princess” so I had to make a VERY difficult choice. <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />
    Needless to say the Princess won! <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    LATEST UPDATE : With the exception of the Parasol, I am happy to inform you that the Oriental Collection pieces are SOLD OUT!!!! <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    Pamela,

    Did your brochure feature a yellow dragon as well?† I think we'd all be interested to know if this is a mistake in the brochures or if there really is a different international version of the dragon.

    Hi Catherine,

    No, our brochure features the red dragon. I must say the gold one is beautiful though!! <img src='style_emoticons//wub.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wub.gif’ /> *drools*

    Here is a picture. <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    well. The launch date for the new solids in Singapore is 14th and 15th October.

    Thank you for your kind words, prayers and good wishes.

    I am deeply touched and truly appreciative. Yes, Elly, it is a great feeling feeling knowing there are friends thinking of you on S.P. <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    Will make it a point to “check-in” often now.

    A BIG hug to everyone!!
