Congratulations - Dear cousin Wai Yee & Philip - 12 March 2011!

I'm getting old. I still remember watching after Wai Yee (my cousin) whenever we went back to Penang and how she would follow my family and be our unofficial tour guide. We could never remember where was where and as at that time, roads were being changed to single street's... getting a local was the best option. All we needed to do was pay for her food! Looking back, I wonder who got the better deal??? :P

She get's free food and merayau rayau with us, while we drive and shop... hmmmm...

So here I am, at New Life in Kota Kemuning.
"No dear, I wouldn't trade this for your bouquet!"
Yes, peace Wai Ying...
Let's get this show on the road, shall we? 1st up: Ring bearer...
And flower girl...
And Flower Girl #2. Why so glum luv?
Bridesmaid #1 - Wai Kuan.
My Uncle and Wai Yee.

Reaching the end of the walkway....
When you're bored, you find entertainment. And you can't argue with the choice of it either. So this kid got my attention. :)
Exchange of vows...
Can you spot (try imagining) the LOVE shape done by the 2 of them?

Exchange of vows #2

Unveiling...
And he zooms in for the ...

And the solemnity is over!
Nice framing eh? I wonder whether I SHOULD consider being an event photographer? :)
Introducing Mr & Mrs...
Walking back down and this time... You're married!
Final shot.
The End.

Kadazan Wedding... Yours truly #2

So here's the continuing set...
Us posing in front of our backdrop.
Who said there wasn't going to be any tea ceremony? :)
But in this case, this "tea" is actually home brew, called lihing, a rice wine...
The policy is that the female, wife, will serve the ladies of the immediate family
And I will serve the gents of the family.

Bottom's UP and DRINK up!
And after that comes the Sumazau dancing...
And more wine...
Some wardrobe malfunction...
Even the kiddies know how to enjoy.
See the happy smiles?
One for the album
I don't know what's with the hands tho...
Did I mention that people of KK LOVE to karaoke???
And Poco-Poco... and obviously I sucked at it BIG time! The only person who oozed with confidence in this dance was my MIL... :)
And finally ending with a bouquet toss.
But of course, we needed to make it from neutral, so the tosser was blindfolded.
And the winner is... Cynthia!

The End.
