What: Shyen & Felix’s Wedding
When: 17 November 2012
Where: Kota Kinabalu, Sabah
Here’s a back-dated post of my colleague’s wedding which made me flew all the way to Sabah for her wedding. It wasn’t my fault for updating this so so so late but the bride’s! Hahaha. I’ve gotten the pictures from her, just today! So technically, I’m still quite an efficient person. I just need to have those memories refreshed in mind again to be blogging about this! Hahaha.
And so a few of us flew over to Sabah for the morning and night wedding ceremony. The theme was fuchsia for the girls and apparently, wedding ceremonies in Sabah can be quite different from us in KL. From what I was told, newly weds actually have to buy space and place their wedding announcement or advertisement on their local newspapers. Hahaha.
#01 This was my friend’s version. I felt really funny about it and I will never do that. Hahahaha.
#02 Here’s the bride and I :) We both are quite swollen because this picture was taken approximately at 6 in the morning. Haha.
#03 I was feeling stone the whole day due to the lack of sleep abroad. My derp moment was caught on camera too.
#04 All the girls and the bride. I now feel bad because I could not recall all of their names already. And this picture was taken right before the groom and the guys came to crash the gate.
#05 Another shoot of the girls which I never knew existed because I was already preparing the games in the hotel (yes, the bride was being picked and games were played in the hotel, as early as 7am). Pfft. I only found out about this picture 3 months later. Nevertheless, it’s a nice picture.
#06 The arrival of the groom, at the entrance of the hotel, Sixty3 which was located strategically in Gaya Street of Kota Kinabalu. Groom needs to be “gaya” too. Haha.
#07 The guys’ colour code was white but we thought they should have a hint of fuchsia too ;)
#08 Because the whole thing took place in a hotel of 5 floors, we made things different. We created games of 4 levels, going accordingly to the level of floors where every 2 girls were stationed in each floor for different challenges and game. That was always because we could not do everything in the hotel lobby. And the first challenge was to do the “Gangnam Style” move. Gosh! Did you know that during that period of time, most weddings had “Gangnam Style” element whether in games or videos? It was…. scary.
#09 The next obstacle was located at level 1 and the guys had to sing this morning song while…
#10 They brush their teeth with wasabi paste :) :) :) My favourite! Hahahaha. And because the guys refused to do as we said, we made noises. And because they made noises, we got scolded from the hotel guest. The hotel levels are not totally covered by floors, it looks like a mall where the centre of the hotel is an open area. I dont know how to explain this exactly but noises from the first floor can actually be heard from the top. Complains and scoldings didn’t stop coming until we finished the whole session. OMG. It was quite a horrible thing to do in the hotel but we didn’t have another option. Sorry if you were one of the guests T_T
#11 Anyways, the next game played was throwing the dice for a punishment. So technically, the guys will receive punishments on whichever result the dice landed with. Haha. The dice wasn’t made by any of us, but it was bought by the bride earlier during her trip in China. We just get to finally make use of it :D
#12 Then we received our first red packet in Renminbi. The China’s currency. We weren’t very pleased with the amount. Still headed for the next game.
#13 It was me and the bride’s cousin who were stalled for the challenge at level 5. The guys had to lick a heart shape on the chocolate piece with their tongues without getting the plastic poked through. It was difficult and gross. Lol.
#14 This was me, explaining about the game.
#15 And this was me, rushing the guys to play the game before the time given ends.
