Jason & Ee Len 's Wedding~
The story began when i received a red bomb on my office table one day. haha, i've never seen such as cute and lovable wedding invitation card!:)
Went up to Penang to attend my colleage's wedding early this January.
hehe, this mark my second trip to Penang.
This is my first going with my colleages to such a long distance trip so was quite looking forward to it. We stayed in Bukit Jawi Golf Resort on the first night, wow, it's quite a big place, very spacious inside.
It has a beautiful and large swimming pool too, too bad i didn't get a chance to dive into it:P
My colleage Jason arrived next day early morning. The bride's armies of sisters are already guarding in front of gates, awaiting to torment the armies of brothers who want to get in too bring the bride home.
One of my colleage,Jeff drinking a special mix juice from a baby bottle, i have no idea what they added inside but from the looks of his face after that, i don't think is gud>_<. Two thumbs up for his bravery!
Oh no, wat are they doing? haha, it's a game of passing down a piece of seaweed with your mouth, only girls eligible to participate. phew...luckly they didn't ask the guys to play...sure wil vomit and have nightmare.
One thing i've learned is that if you have a camera at hand like me, you'll be spared of playing the games, wahaha~
After a few more rounds of games, the sisters stil refuse to let us in. so what to do... we decided to head on charge in!
As important as the declaration of independence, this is Jason's declaration of love to the bride, he even read it out loud in mandarin and cantonese:)
Finally here comes the bride:)
Next they went to visit the family of the bride.
Before the wedding dinner, we took a side trip to try some local dishes. Yeah, the cendol taste quite good and i'm not saying it because i'm also a Teo Chew:P Notice the picture in the far right is Phua Chua Kang and Rosie visiting the stall!
We went to a coffee shop and saw this funny signboard that i've never seen before. It says that the coffe shop is operating on a small capital, customer must at least order a drink if they want to sit at the coffee shop, else they are subject to pay 40cents! walao ~ (>_<)
The wedding dinner is held at Thirty Two, wow, i've never been to such a grand, beautiful, stylish place for a wedding dinner before! (photo courtesy of sunny san)
In front part there's a place where visitor can sit down and chit chat and have some drinks before the event starts.
There's a nice bar as well! haha, but it's only serving jambu juice for free that night:P
Once i got inside, once again i was amazed.
The place was elegantly decorated. They even invited some jazz singers to play live performance. Overall, the atmosphere is very nice, smooth and calming.
It's a good break from the crazy shouting events on a regular chinese wedding dinner. haha, i was too early to say that before the table to table Yam Sheng (toasting) event. Oh well, somethings don't change and it's just meant to be like it ahha.
This is my first time being served a French-style dinner.
So you can expect me to wah...wah...wah...all the way as each dish is being served in front of me. Hmm...this soup is taste abit funny...quite different from the regular mushroom soup. somehow taste more raw~
This appetizer is quite nice, but is gone in 30 seconds...haha no la...first time eating this stuff so must cherish every bite:P
The main dish, chicken.... each person can choose whether they want fish or chicken.
This is the dessert which contains yummy ice-cream and cakes. My most favourite part, if there's an options i don't mind skipping appetizer and main meal just to have dessert, dessert and dessert! wahaha.
Next is the "Who's Gonna be the Next Bride!" throw flower frenzy. haha, i'm quite lucky that i managed to capture this shot:)
Hehe, it was a gud wedding dinner and trip and it's time to bid Penang good-bye. Haha, as looked back at my photos taken, i suddenly realize for this trip i just kept on taking pictures that i forgot to include myself in it!:P
Once again, wishing that Jason and Ee Len a happy life together.
