Abby’s BIG DAY~!

After much preparations, it’s finally THE day~! In case you’re wondering what’s there for me to prepare, there’s a lot!!! Gotta 烦恼 what to wear (because I don’t usually attend weddings), borrow whatever I can from Sis – bags, shoes and etc, rebond my horrible-looking fringe and then after rebonding I have to go for treatment!

Sounding like I’m the bride right? Hahaha! But I can’t imagine the much more amount of things she needs to prepare =/

Anyhow, the big day started as a rainy one, dirtying my shoes and messing my hair…Zzzzz. But it did not take us too long to arrive at the church for my very first church wedding attended!

Found our pretty bride in the kids’ room and she looks like a little girl playing 扮家家酒 sitting in that kid’s chair! xD

And another pretty one who is also one of the sisters for the wedding!

Being Abby’s close friend since primary school, Limin was of course one of the sisters too! So we finally got to see her in dress!!! The last time I saw her in skirt/dress was Deyi‘s uniform >.<

Presented the bride with our handmade gifts! 😀

It’s pillow cases that we brainstormed, designed, and painted together!!! Hehe! ONE & ONLY~! (They weren’t aligned properly; they will join perfectly!)

Managed to trick everyone on Instagram! xD

Anyhow, this was our one and only chance to take a picture with the bride throughout the day! And she would be flying off soon after the wedding to further her studies with her husband~

The pretty tail!

Waiting to say their vow

Before the solemnisation, there were some preaching and also singing of the gospels~ I think we were a little overwhelmed by the latter =/

Well anyway, it was finally “You may not kiss your bride“! 😀

Sooooo petite that my face looks so big now -.-“

Done with part 1 of the day, then it was time to prepare for part 2! But disasters happened one after another D:

 photo 20130727_174640_zpsd270beef.jpg

First disaster!!!

Imagine my horror when in the midst of rushing to meet the girls, I saw this when I took out the pair of shoes I borrowed from Sis from the plastic bag! =OOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Thank goodness I have the habit of sticking back all my worn out shoes till they are really cannot-be-worn-anymore and so I have the glue to stick the thing back! Imagine it happened after I stepped out! OMG~ Can’t imagine wearing this to a 5-star hotel!

But it wasn’t the end because the moment I stepped out, I was like … deaddddddd. I couldn’t even walk properly because the shoes were too loose!!! I wasn’t expecting this because my Sis and I share the same shoe size! >.<

Managed to go back and grab my spare heel grips before limping my way to the station and stopping by some void deck to stick my heel grips! 超狼狈的~!!!T.T

Well anyhow, we finally made our way down to St. Regis and Limin had already started “work” at the reception! Hehe!

Oh this was another gift from us! Half handmade because it was plain and we decorated it (:

Standard cam-whoring in the washroom while Limin is busy at the reception! xD

Before going out…

Me: I wanna 自拍~

Chii Hian: *busy posing beside me*

Me: I wanna 拍~~~

Chii Hian: *continues to pose*

Me: Hello hello…. 拍~! 拍~!!!(emphasising on the )

Then she finally got my hint! Hahahaha!

Bin Bin & me!

We came slightly earlier because Abby told us to come early for the photo booth, which she reckons we will love! And indeed! We were having fun with the props~! xD

Trying out different specs…hehe!

And we took so many shots that the photographer joked that he’s gonna charge us~ Loveeeeee all the photos and flawless quality and the instant printing service (though we waited quite some time for ours) 😀

With the pretty missy! Love her dress and overall appearance for the night!!! (Don’t say I always make you paiseh hor, am praising you now xD) Anyway she was lucky to have her Sis to do her hairdo for her. I didn’t know what to do with mine and just did a little braid at the side. I think it turned out not bad too -self-praise- Hahahahaha!

Chocolate door gift!

Chii Chii was so sad at first because she got this chocolate and I got the soap instead. I thought she would want the chocolate (because she loves to eat!) but it turned out that she wants the soap more and I want the chocolate! So we had a happy swop…hahahaha!

Anyhow, something super funny happened right before our dinner!
We girls were the first to be seated before this guy whom we have never met before came to sit at our table…

As Limin had told me earlier on that her good friend – Wee Kiat will be the only guy at our table, I naturally thought this young man is Wee Kiat! So confidently, I was like, “Oh!!! You are Wee Kiat ah?!

Guy: *stunned for a while* Is this table 5???

Me: Yah…

Guy: Oh… Then yah I’m at table 5. But I’m not Wee Kiat, I’m Jay. *shook hand with me*

Me: *embarrassed* Ooohhhh… Ehhhhh? But my friend told me there would only be 1 guy at our table…

Guy: *shocked* So your friend told you there’s only 1 guy at this table and it’s Wee Kiat…?

Me: Yahhh….

Guy: Hmmmmm………

We chit-chatted a little and realised that he is Abby’s “outside friend” *cough cough* xD

Anyway, the story isn’t over yet…
Limin finally joined us at the table and sat beside me, between Jay and I.

Me: *whisper to Limin* You told me Wee Kiat will be the only guy at our table and I thought this guy is him!!! I…

Before I could finish, Limin turned around and gave Jay one big slap on his back (because his back was facing her) and Jay turned around with a blank look. For a moment, I thought Limin knows this guy as well, but not until she started apologising and we realised she made the same mistake as me!

So imagine how embarrassed I already was when I mistaken him as Wee Kiat… And now imagine how embarrassed Limin was after giving him that slap!! LOL! And it was quite a hard one by the way!  Jay must be thinking like, “What the hell is wrong with this table ah?!” HAHAHAHAHA!!!

I can still remember the scene and I can’t help but laugh whenever I replay it in my mind! Superrrrrr funny + embarrassing, yet so memorable because you know how awkward wedding dinners can sometimes be, especially if you don’t know anyone at all. So all these bloopers definitely “warmed us up” and we started chit-chatting and “interrogating” him about erm… Singapore Flyers xDDD

First march-in!

This is my first time having such personal course meal for wedding dinner and I actually like the idea because the portions are small so you wouldn’t bloat yourself, though I was still busy passing sharing food with poor Limin and Chii Hian xD
