I have always said that Thailand has been good to me. A year has flown by and I am still relishing every moment of this exotic journey in the Land of Smiles. However, after 2 weeks of joy and jubilation having finally written the full stop to my marathon-like wedding festivities, life has gone into an absolute anti-climax following my return to Bangkok. It has been a bad week at the office, the worst week I have had here in terms of emotional and mental turmoil. Worst thing is, I have a bad feeling that this week will become a 7-day work week, talk about never-ending mental torture......
But it's Friday after all, and I am determined to put the frustrations behind me for an hour while I compile this blog post which continues to recount the steps of my marriage. Planning a wedding banquet in Singapore from Bangkok was like building castles in the air. No matter how novel my ideas were, I knew that with me having only 6 full days in Singapore before my actual wedding day to prepare for it, I had to compromise, compromise, compromise.
I just did not want my wedding dinner to become a monotonous film of march-ins and yam sengs, therefore, I invited all my guests to become my wedding photographers!! It was kind of a 'gamble', but judging from the fun they had and the pictures that came with it, I would not have chosen any other way to involve my guests on my big day. Here's some evidence why this move of mine gave me a load of priceless memories I otherwise would not have witnessed:
|Kids trying to emulate monkeys, looks like they had a good time.|
|Princess Candra beaming at the spread of interesting-looking dishes prepared by Peony Jade.|
|Yiling looks as stunning as I last saw her 4 years ago, but Charisse is a big girl now,she likes the wedding favour!|
|How else would I catch my coordinator and official photographer taking a break? (??!!)|
|How else would I catch such a nice smile from the beautiful Eleen with Bihua standing demurely behind her?|
|How else would I catch Junxiong trying his best to pull off a funny face (epic FAIL attempt).|
|It gave me proof that my guests enjoyed the free flow of beer.|
|It gave me some great candid moments to savour.|
|It gave me a perfect shot with my best brothers.|
|My song team is REALLY took the song segment SERIOUSLY, thanks guys, u're the best.|
|Disposable cameras do have limitations, but it resulted in a nice silhouette of the singers.|
Lastly and extremely devastatingly, someone managed to take me in the most AGUA (阿瓜）pose I have ever seen myself in. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR DOING THIS ON MY WEDDING.
Laugh lor... Laugh lor.... $%^&*(*&^%
