We have chosen a tentative date for the Chinese customary wedding, but nothing is fixed yet..and as usual, all will be revealed in due time :) Our civil marriage ceremony aka ROM was attended by family members and a handful of my closest friends :) It was a event filled with laughter :) Most Chinese elderly wouldn't have considered a couple officially married until they have completed the traditional customary wedding .
I am gonna interrupt my usual blogging with a short message by the groom
Err....what to say har?
I wanna to thank my father, mother, mil, fil, friends....blab blab blab...you get the gist....lol
Oh...oh..oh...and my wife too!!!! Without her, I can't have a marriage....kekeke
So, we would like to share with everyone the closure of our courtship and the beginning of our married life....
To my wife.... I LOVE YOU!!
Do pardon his nonsensical yet somewhat meaning message :P he is still overwhelmed by the life changing event.
Why now, don't let us hold you back from viewing our photos from the ceremony lunch ..here are some highlights
Doing makeup and hair
in my aunt's room..
Mr and Mrs tags made by yours truly.
I didn't want to spend too much money
on this ROM, so we decided not to
have any flowers or sashes on the chairs...

After the lunch event was over, a couple of friends, my bro and ourselves ajourned to
Scarlet Hotel for our staycation. I invited my friends to pop in to have a look at the place..
I have heard wonderful reviews of the boutique hotel :)
Will write about that in my next entry!
It has been almost 10 days since we have been married..

\a married woman now.. :D
