Well, never ever ask when would be my turn as this could be the toughest question that I’ve never thought of. Sometimes, I just think that I’m not the marriage type of person…I’m just too used to be single.
As I was one of the chosen “Heng Tai (Brothers)”, I woke up at 6am as I've to reach the groom’s house in Kota Kemuning at 7:30am for some preparations and breakfast. Pink was the theme where all of us have to dress in “PINK” (I felt like a pink panther). At 8:30am sharp, we drove off from his house to USJ to pick up the bride. Couldn’t avoid some games prepared by those sisters that involved some push up, tasty food and drink, singing etc. Generally, it wasn’t so tough but fun. Thanks Angie and Lai for their kindness of not gave us a tough time. Back to groom’s house for some tea-drinking ceremony before we called off for the day at around 2pm.
While on my way back home, I received a SMS from Meg asking for dinner at Sunway Pyramid. I accepted her invitation where I joined her and Mr. Lee for dinner at Italiannes Sunway Pyramid right after I went back home for shower. Always enjoy their company.
2 Nov 2008: It was time for the wedding dinner. In order to save petrol and tol fare, we've decided to car pool to the Subang Imperial China restaurant. Therefore, I drove to Chak's house with my dress-up after taken 2 hours of noon-nap (Went for Terry Fox run ealier in the morning). We reached the restaurant at 6pm to help on some preparation before the dinner started at 8:20pm. It was an 8-course dinner set where the food was just average. However, it was fine for me as I was walking around most of the time for “Yam Seng (Toast)” with his friends and relatives. Guess that’s the purpose of being a “Heng Tai” to make sure the groom won’t get drunk before the dinner ends. It took me around 5 hours in the restaurant itself before we had our brotherhood’s toast with the groom and back home to hit the sack.
However, it’s kind of bothering me on the real purpose of wedding dinner nowadays. Would it be a sharing of joy and happiness? Or is it just a ceremony to show the engagement? And does it really necessary?
Anyway, I’m truly wishing YF and Eunice a happily ever after married life. You really made it my buddy. :)
