Hallo Anteaders! how’s your weekend? mine was splendid! Attended P’s wedding and had fun catching up with Indian course mates whom i have never met since graduation, that’s like 5 years back?
didn’t bring Hugo this time, but i had my trusty iBaby with me, managed to immortalize some of the moment. Indian wedding is ermmm interesting and wearying, like Chinese wedding.
i’ll let the photos do the talking.
my weekend started with a bus trip to Seremban where i met up with PL!
had our dinner at this 好旺Restaurant, S2 before departing to Puchong where we put up a night at.
the fish head meehoon was so good. we ordered for portion of one and we were startled when it’s served, can feed up to three i think.
chillax at Geoventure before checking in hotel. the liveband was engaging and i likey the female singer. didn’t catch their name though.
wore saree for the first time! everyone complimented that i look good in the traditional attire, given by our ex-Indian neighbour. it’s pretty but it’s hassle to wear on. had to suck in tummy all the time so that i could fake the nice abs thingy wtf. also my lower limbs were drenched in sweat, the weather was unforgivingly searing hot! price paid to look good huh. no wonder my Indian friends only wear saree on special occasion.
a nother shot.
don’t know when’s the next time i get to wear saree again, of course have to camwhore gao gao.
one with PL, my chauffeur over the weekend. hehe. luckily the temple is airy enough, if not we could’ve melted.
i ermmm couldn’t resist.
my electric blue nails complement well with my saree. it’s not coincidence.
like i mentioned, Indian wedding is interesting.
first the groom don in engagement attire will perform some prayer thingy together with the bride’s brother. then the bride’s turn with groom’s sister, in engagement attire. next the groom will change into new wedding attire and continue with the ceremony. after that, bride dressed in bold colour wedding saree accompanied by her entourage will slowly strut in. lastly, the groom will finally get to meet her stunning bride in the ceremony and tie each other a string/ necklace, and yay they’re officially husband and wife now after 2.5 hours.
PL’s is one of the flower girl, and literally got flower on her hair one.
the wedding took place in this exquisite temple.
pretty hair decor on the bride’s hair. ya, it’s hair extension guys.
i also kepo-ed.
managed to grab a photo with P, the bride before she got busy with the ceremony. isn’t she pretty?
damn i should’ve stuck some falsies on. my eyes look so bare..
a closer shot of P.
not muchy decoration needed in this already picturesque temple.
had vegetarian lunchy during the reception.
we were really thirsty and hungry by the time the ceremony ended. actually not really ended, the bride and groom still carried on with some prayer thingy while most of guests were off to the canopy for food! so we followed suit.
you know how we Chinese will give angpao to the receptionist during wedding dinner. at Indian wedding, guests will line up and hand gift/angpao personally to the couple, they will thank you and sunbian take a photo together. i like this part of the wedding.
by the time the wedding really ending, we’re weary, beaten by the weather and couldn’t wait to change into comfy baju. sorry saree, it’s all good while it lasted.
the 10-million temple, i heard. gulp.
PL & i then drove back to Seremban where i overnight-ed before heading back to Malacca the next morning.
squeezed some time to meet up with Melissa of Melissa the Great over brekkie at Pasar Besar Seremban!
Melissa recommended this traditional cendol where they shave the ice manually with hands.
thanks Melissa for taking some sleeping time off to meet up with me! and thanks PL for driving me around.
so you see, i had a fruitful weekend!
now, back to work.
