My morning tea ceremony

*Long post!*

Date: 14.03.2010
Venue: Home sweet Home

Woke up as early as 6am to get ready for my bridal makeup and hairdo at Ivy's place. Crystal, my bridesmaid fetched me there and waited for me patiently for the whole process, how nice!

the whole thing supposed to finish earlier but the previous bride was late for about 30 mins, so, i had to waste 30 mins waiting for nothing =_=

tada~ view from the back, super love this hairstyle!

photo stolen from Ivy's FB. she is really a professional make up artist!


at 10am, i reached home and getting ready to welcome the groom and his brothers ;)

with my dearest family

basically, EK and his 12 brothers were supposed to go through 6 different games before he was allow to see me, lol.
1st: drinking sweet syrup which consist of rock sugar and brown sugar;
drinking sour lime juice;
drinking bitter gourd and leaves juice;
eating curry instant noodles with loads of chili padi and curry powder.
2nd: look for an ice cube in the pail which has my house door key frozen inside, next, figure out how to get the key (they rubbed the ice using their palms).
3rd: one guy lie on the floor with the long wasabi bun in his mouth, the other guy pumping on top of him and bite the bun.
4th: blow the super thick balloon, then 2 guys break it using their abdomen.
5th: EK reading the love poem as loud as he could and make sure i hear it ;) (sounds very outdated but it's a must!)
6th: last but not least, look for my room door key which hidden inside a pail of ice, using only the feet.
haha, finally~

tea ceremony, ancestors praying and photo session

another family photo with grandma

the same flow happened at EK's place which include tea ceremony and photo session. then headed back to our room and thats the end of the whole morning ceremony! phew~ damn tiring and hot!!

it was a very tiring event, i couldnt even find the time to nap/rest after the morning ceremony, as i need to change and rush to Ivy's place again for my dinner makeup and hairdo =_=
anyway, really thanks to all the sisters (especially Esther) who helped me in preparing the games, as well as to the brothers who were willing to accept those challenges on behalf of EK.
it was tiring, but it was real fun!! :D
