Daniel And Raven’s Wedding Morning Ceremony

First of all, congratulations to Daniel and Raven once again on their lovely wedding to mark a new beginning in their life together as husband and wife..

Known Raven for 9 years since the heydays of STPM..Time flies and everyone has moved on to a new journey in their life and Raven is the first from our batch to tie the knot on 20th November 2010..

If there’s a first, for sure there’ll be second, third and so forth..As expected, few more from our batch would tie the knot in 2011 should everything goes as planned..

Once we were close friends, and we shall remained as close friends for as long as can be..So I wish all of you all the best and we shall see each other again in such inaugral reunion dinner..

As promised, got up pretty early (on a Sunday) and headed to Raven’s house for the morning ceremony to be the unofficial photographer..

*Preparing for the games*

Here you can see all the maids of honor aka bridesmaid were busy getting their things ready because they didn’t prepare it earlier!

*The Ultimate Killer Drink*

This I call it the Ultimate Killer Drink, contained Pepsi Twist, raw eggs, chilli boh, and a bit of wasabi paste..

Now here’s a little story to¬† the games they played in that morning..

We had a little gathering at Raven’s house the night before wedding, heard the plans from the one in-charge of the games, BeeYan..Few of us guys, weren’t very happy with the games..

Not that they were too cruel, but they were rather too lenient..So when all of the bridesmaids have left, few of us helped alter the games a bit here and there to make it much more interesting..

The Ultimate Killer Drink was one of them..I’ll continue with the games as we move on..

*The groom, Daniel*

Now, if you are an avid fan of Hong Kong TVB drama, you will definitely know who is this guy..Can be seen in Forensic Heroes 1 and 2 and many other notable drama where he’s usually with the police force..

Ok just kidding..He’s not that HK actor but I can tell you that Daniel is 90% looks exactly like that actor, Chou Weng Nin (or however you pronounce/spell his name), in terms of face sturcture and even his smile..

*The groom and his groomsmen*

The groom had his warriors groomsmen wore their ‘uniform’ ala football style, short pants, knee-length football socks and sports shoes..

Daniel had about 15 groomsmen with him that morning and I applaud to that..It’s not easy to gather your best warriors to help you get Rapunzel off the tower..

So back to the games..It’s understood that the games provided by the bridesmaids for the groomsmen is a symbol of support by the groomsmen to help the groom in anyway they could in order to marry the bride, or something like that..

Earlier, we were told that the elders might not like something to extreme or raunchy hence the lenient games..

We thought that marriage is a once in a lifetime thingy..So I think it’s okay to have some fun which is not too extreme just for the sake of a lovely event on a lovely day..

First off, we have this..

*Groomsmen in ugly briefs*

I know this is normal but it wasn’t even in the initial plan! Wicked I know..I had it on for Wilson’s wedding and now I’m on the audience’s side for something funny and interesting..

Then we had the groom to use a marker pen to write “Daniel <3 Raven” on the butts of his warriors by using his mouth..

Then we got them to kiss each other wtf..

Much more raunchy stuff after we’ve consulted the bridesmaids..

Jason And Grace Wedding Ceremony On Mid-Autumn Festival – Tea Ceremony

October 3rd 2009 is the day that a lot of couples deemed it to be an auspicious day..They get married on 2009′s Mid-Autumn Festival based on the Lunar calendar..

I have 2 couple of friends who have registered since few months back and now they are officially married, the Chinese way..

One couple is my old best buddy, Jason Chan Yew Mun, whom I got to know during my short stint in Cochrane Road School doing Form 6, marrying his love of his life, Grace Loo..

Another couple is a blogger friend who I got to know not long after I blog actively back in 2006, Cely and Hongkiat..

As much as I wanted to attend both of their dinner, but it’s impossible..

To make up to both of these friends wedding, I’ve decided to go both sides, one in the morning and one for the dinner..

So, I went to Jason and Grace‘s wedding reception aka tea ceremony (in Chinese custom), in a slight hangover state..I know, it sucks..

*Home prayer*

Due to my drunkard state in the previous night (with a different group of friends), I didn’t manage to go to the early morning thingy where the maids of honor (bridesmaids) played a fool with the best men (groomsmen)..

I bet it was a fun activity..

*Rushing to the next destination, The Mines*

So after fetching the bride to the groom’s house for a short prayer and all, they proceeded to the next destination for the tea ceremony..

On a side note, it’s not quite a good morning as it drizzled for a while..I bet a lot of couples around the KL were expecting the worst scenario..

Fortunately it didn’t happened..

*In Mines*

Before the Chinese custom’s wedding tea ceremony, all of us were treated with some light meals because all of them were up since early morning, except for me.. :P

Due to my hangover state, I skipped the foods and drinks..

A bit of fun facts..Both of them got to know each other in their college, Sunway College..

They have been together for 4 years and 11 months before the real deal, if you set aside the registration part..We are Chinese anyway..

What else..One of the bride’s bridesmaid, Jennifer is my friend Nicholas’ girlfriend and Nicholas happened to be Jason’s ex-schoolmates back in Primary school..

More photos up ahead on the tea ceremony and also the bouquet-tossing activity, which is kinda funny..
