I have been living off my suitcases this month without unpacking much except for dirty laundry. After Bangkok's grand funeral, I attended a grand wedding at Conrad Hotel in Singapore the following weekend. Next week, I will be off to Shanghai for a week's break and I still hope to find quality time there to read all your blogs.
Here my honey posed with the groom's sister who "dressed herself to kill" for the lunch reception. The hotel is so big with superb class services where you don't find any Bangla workers serving you.
I was attracted to this 2 lovely boxes for the guests to leave their "ang-pow" gifts! Yes, we have to pay our fees before you eat the food. The lunch table was tagged like (Sin)$1,800 per table. It really burnt a big hole in my pocket but the dishes were all fantastic and good enough to please the Empress Dowager. I cleaned all my plates dry!
The handsome groom is my wife's cousin and we are very close with his very kind and generous parents. I was not surprised to see so many relatives flying all the way from China, Hong Kong and Malaysia as a respect to the parents.
I always enjoyed myself meeting up with relatives from my wife's side which are very different from mine. Here they have drama queens, gossip queens and kings who would bring the house down with laughters. They are all very humble and would speak anything without 2nd thoughts! However, my relatives are too polite and reserved people who would laugh softly in the public! Adoi! I am not like this!
I must admit that all the Singaporean guests who attended were very well dressed from head to toe. Even the 2 ladies wore pretty wigs (See the photo) to look their best. Sadly, the worst dressed guests were from Malaysia and China! One relative-couple from Guangzhou wore plastic slippers into the ballroom with deplorable clothes but they live in a 4 storey house in China!! They have money but no dressing taste!
The bride and groom are very matching with their natural good looks. The 6' 1" tall dashing groom was a model in Singapore and currently works in the advertising industry like me.
I heard Ah Hua scream so loud to show the groom's close up. So I had to steal his photos from his Facebook! Oh My God! I am a thief!!!
Okay is he handsome boh?
