Surprise or not? *LOL* This is the first one, attending the dinner banquet.
Our family is pretty different, even if there’s someone got married, there’s no such big hu-ha about it. No tea ceremony, no banquet, no inivitation etc. Just a simple announcement by mouth that pass from one to another. So far, only two of my cousins got married in almost 10 years and there’s no such tradition at all. My parents always told us to keep things as simple as possible as they are not fond of all these hu-ha also. I know many people will open their eyes wide wide now hahaha… As we believe the most important thing is to get married legally and to maintain a marriage. Others are not important, no matter how grand your wedding is, if you don’t know how to maintain your marriage, there is no use also.
This one, caught me by surprise. It’s not a very close relative of mine. Just happened that my uncle(my dad’s bro) is the bride’s God father else we won’t be invited. The bride is actually my cousin’s cousin. It’s pretty distant hahaha… My bro and I weren’t invited but instead we went as representatives of my aunt and uncle in Singapore.
Since the bride’s father is a businessman who manufacturers one of the famous keropok in Kuching, there’s definitely keropok served on the tables.
Too bad, we were seated at the very very very corner, couldn’t really see the stage or anything. I had to zoom in until using my digital zoom. It didn’t help much also with so many people in front of us and the drink station was located just behind me where the waiters and waitresses would be blocking my view with their butts! Then the uncle from another table kept blocking my view by always going to the other table to talk, all I saw was his butt! Lots of heads too. Sigh…
That’s how it was. So I can only share food photos with you. Even the food photos turned out blurred coz I just simply snapped.
