Joyce&Weelim's Wedding #1 | Morning Session 接新娘

Saturday, February 08, 2014

It was a month ago, an indeed highlight for 2014, nope for my entire life. Wedding for your own sister is like a real big thing, although i have 3 sisters and 1 brother. So i have basically completed 1/4 of the wedding highlight in my life. Haha.

It's ironically sad that the minute i was blogging about this, i actually wished that it could be my wedding because this will be the FIRST wedding post in my entire blog. Yes i fret you not, not any other before this, i tracked back and NONE seriously. Too bad it wasn't for my own wedding, but for my sis, it's okay la! She's forgiven that she somewhat jump my queue to get married before me! Haha. Okay you can see how desperate i am when it comes to marriage. But life is always a bitch, it will not live the way you like. I shall just accept this very fact. Who knows i might meet my prince charming tomorrow and get married the day after tomorrow? Haha. Day dreaming again, such a fairy tale heroin i am!

So yeah back to my sister wedding's part 1, the morning session 接新娘. Every traditional chinese wedding will be separated into different parts; As for Joyce, hers were rather simple only 3 parts, morning session, tea ceremony and wedding dinner. The first two were held at the same day but different place on 1st of January whereas the last one was two days later on 3rd of January.

The morning session is located at Empire Hotel Suite, our hometown is in Penang, and it is quite impossible to travel all the way from Penang to Klang, such a waste of time and effort and PETROL. Lol. All the jimuis were staying at the hotel the night before, there it goes my last day of 2013 partying alone in the hotel suite. Pretty not happening sia! But i shall repeat again, for my sister, it's okay! Hahahaha. We woke up around 7 to get ourself ready and the games. Mmmm Interesting games!



Group shot with our family before dad officially put on the veil on sister, part of the tradition for Chinese weddings. I feel like crying the minute dad put that on sis! 我的姐姐要嫁人了! 1048394048901个舍不得! 


Aha, before the groom and heng dais arrived, me and Katherine got our evil bridesmaid job done. It's a must to have the 'tasting game' on every wedding that includes four taste sensations including sweet, bitter, salty, and sour. So we got our 'tasting game' with blended bitter gourd + honey + espresso + wasabi + tea + milk + green tea ! Not too much la hor?! Hahahaha


Getting our breakfast ready, fill our stomach before playing with all the groom!

A picture of the Tam Jiak Bride, and Maggie Mah my favorite make up artist. She's available for all kind of make up services. Book her for more awesome make up!

Happy bridesmaids are good evil bridesmaids.


The groom and heng dais were surprisingly punctual, they arrived half an hour before the time were scheduled. Can see how much my brother in law want to married my sis, good for you joyce! Plus point! But still we made them wait down there after my little brother opening door. Evil bridesmaid.



Daddy happily watching at his new son, my brother in law LEW WEE LIM!! 



First challenge for the groom - forced brother in law to do pumping exercise while brother sat on him! BEST CHALLENGE to have a 80kg person sat on it. Well we will see how much love my brother towards his new brother! Hahahaha



Next, after the drinking game, another round of taste game, very easy just pass the slices lemon on lips towards each of the brother. No challenge at all but SOUR!



After the another kissing game, not kissing each other like the lemon game. We made something different, we would like to see how sincere the brothers towards the groom. All of them excluding the groom, will have to draw a big red lips and kiss on the blank paper we provide to form a HEART SHAPE. The bigger the shape will signify their love to the married couple.





Okay due to the limited time given, the couple have to rush to the groom's side for tea ceremony, we called it morning session off with another 爱的宣言 by brother in law and his favorite dance. So here are some picture recap before we leaving the hotel.

The bride sister finally got time for us before she moved on to her busy schedule




Well here's a picture taken at the groom's house after their tea ceremony. Sorry too lazy to blog, as they were basically shouting and greeting their relative. Hahahaha.


Last but not least, one of the highlight of the wedding with me me me and the Bride's Bouquet!! Okay let me roughly explain to you how important of the bouquet play in the wedding. I'm sure most of you heard of it, it is traditional for the bride to throw her bouquet at the reception and for all single women present to compete in catching it. The woman who catches the bouquet is said to be the next who will marry.


I was desperately, wanting, dying to catch so that i can end my single life and get a guy to married soon. However life is a bitch, Tze Tzi another bridesmaid just snatched it off from me! Oh nuuuuuuu! Is it a hint that i'm gonna be single forever?! *inside joke*



Ending this post with a flower bouquet from YummyFlowerz. Thank you so much Eric!
