Ronald & Karen’s Wedding! (Part 1)

Was pretty excited for Karen’s wedding that at some point of time, I felt as though I am the bride! Hahaha! Seriously, I was so kan chiong about all the logistics for the gate crash games because I’m the game master, and at the same time, about my own outfit, hairdo and etc that I couldn’t quite sleep well the night before =/

Few nights ago, I even dreamt that I was late for her wedding and missed the entire gate crash!!! LOL.
Anyhow, spent the night before preparing for one of the gate crash games! Hiak hiak~ That big packet of chilli padis only cost me 60 cents!

Finally done with my chilli puffs! Disguised as Chewy Junior‘s cream puffs xD

Woke up at 5.15am the next morning (apparently earlier than the bride!!!) to prepare for the big day~! 😀 I know I’m gonna need ample time for the dress alone because it has like 217497238 ways of wearing; okay, only 20-30 ways actually, but still, it’s enough to be a headache.

On the way to the bride’s house~!
Didn’t have time to do anything about my hair eventually -_-“

Most of the sisters have reached by then and were already preparing the remaining ingredients for the 酸甜苦辣 game! The photographer couldn’t stop snapping pictures of our evil behind-the-scenes…hahahaha!

酸 – fresh lemon juice!

“甜” – Chocolate-coated cream puffs!
(To cover up the hole I dug to put in the chilli padis xD )

苦 – 苦茶!
Heard it’s real bitter; I personally haven’t tried it though~

 photo 20130921_074310_zps4e9153da.jpg

And the real 甜 – Snickers & cakes coated with honey and sugar!
My idea again…oops~

Done with the preparations! Time to visit the bride! 😀

In her cute Korean hairdo! Hehe!

And after spending 2 separate nights trying on the different ways of wearing this Henkaa convertible dress, asking for votes, opinions and etc, I finally settled on this halter-like way! (:

But it turned out that ALL the other sisters wore it the tube-dress way because they said it’s the easiest!!! Now I stick out like a sore thumb T.T

All ready and waiting for the brothers’ arrival!
(Tub of chilli to disguise as “辣” item)

But the bride’s not ready… Still looking for her accessory! Haha!

*Honk honk* Here comes the groom and the brothers~!

Locking the gate up!

Asking for angbao in exchange for the key but it was such a small one! So the mischievous brothers started digging out coins from their wallets for us -_____-|||

“Bo liao~”

Since some of them are quite “experienced” brothers, especially when they were also the brothers for Karen’s sister’s wedding, they know how to drag time and etc. So we gave in and let them in to start off our games!

Treated them to some food and drinks – the 4 酸甜苦辣 items that we had prepared and they were no doubt skeptical about the cream puffs…hahahaha! But they had to eat them anyway 😛

After all the eating, especially that calorie-loaded special Snickers, it was time for some exercise! We wanted a dance item but Gangnam Style is way too mainstream… Then one of my favourite K-Pop song crossed my mind!

Yes! That hot Kara‘s Mister MV that I love!!! xD
We even added like 3 must-have dance moves for them but apparently, it was an epic fail~ The men just refused to bring out the Miley Cyrus in them!

Moved on to the next game and guess what the 6 big guys are busy with~

Busy forming…

Having a hard time forming the ❤

And because our rule is that the red beans shouldn’t fall off from the double-sided tape on the paper, the guys actually prepared scotch tape for this game!!! Really experienced huh -_-”
 photo 20130921_085143_zps52010c94.jpg

And then Jason even decided to tape the groom along with it! LOL.
 photo 20130921_085146_zps499a33e6.jpg

The poor groom looking so helpless~ In fact many times during the games when the brothers were not spontaneous enough and joked about leaving, Ronald the Mr. Nice stood there looking so helpless, because he is too nice to walk away and he wants his bride! Hahaha!
 photo 20130921_085152_zps0bdc7f7b.jpg

We actually had like 2 more games but since the brothers dragged till we overran, we had to cut it short and end off with our last game – experiencing pregnancy! Firstly, the guys have to pair up and blow a balloon into the partner’s shirt…

I guess this was the most epic photo caught in the morning! LOLOLOL. The most priceless part is Ronald’s expression! Is he doing it the wrong way, or he’s just too good at it??? HAHAHAHAHA.


(Disclaimer: This game is not my idea ah!)

Anyhow, the ones with the balloon in shirt will have to do 8 sit-ups with that big belly! xD
 photo 20130921_090135_zps993c791d.jpg

I think we let the brothers off quite easily as in the games weren’t too difficult (according to them) or in any way humiliating I think. There weren’t bras or undies used, and neither did we dress them up as a joke~ No cruel waxing games like Abby’s gate crash too! In fact a few brothers were quite skeptical when we announced the end of our games~ Haha!

Preparing the groom to meet the bride! (:
 photo 20130921_090304_zpseb12ca91.jpg

Unfortunately, the groom had to go through yet another obstacle, not by us – Sisters this time, but by the relatives asking for angbao! Haha!

Finally, at the doorstep of the bride’s room! Making his dramatic entrance by shouting, “Karen, 我来了~~~!

And here’s the bride, right here waiting ((((‘:

Off to the groom’s house~!

It’s so sweet to see Ronald having all these pictures on his wall!!! Awwwww~ Usually only girls will do such stuff.
 photo 20130921_094639_zpsc9b87460.jpg

Took the chance to take a picture with the bride before she got too busy! 😀

Pretty bouquet!!!

Most of the time in the groom’s house was spent waiting because of photo-taking and changing of gown, so we had plenty of time to rest and cam-whore! Hehe!

With the sisters! (:

Another shot with the bride after she had changed! 😀

Still remember the first time she asked to take a picture with me during NDP (((:

And then it was the tea ceremony~!

She is so so so cuteeeee!!

Finally time to fill my hungry stomach!

 photo 20130921_105943_zpsfbde368f.jpg


Slacked for quite a while at the bride’s house while waiting for them to finish the tea ceremony, which took quite some time because Karen has a big family~ Everyone was exhausted by then and I must say that being sisters (or maybe even brothers) is tiring!!! This is my second time (first was for my Sis’s) and I think my last time shall be reserved for Clique! 再当下去就真的嫁不出了~~~ Hahaha!

Finally off to Chinatown for the last part of the day – photo shoot! The couple wanted to make use of the mid-autumn decorations and just nice that Karen’s Chinese traditional gown matched the theme! (:

The photographer attempted to ask us to do a catwalk shot but he gave up in the end…LOL.

The pillar to replace coconut tree~

And then we found our “tree“!!!
 photo 20130921_130908_zps8590a395.jpg

It was actually the decorations used for the temple and we happened to spot them on the ground, so we actually asked for permission to borrow the “props“! xD

And then, it finally marked the end of Part 1 of the day~ It was indeed tiring but fun!
Part 2 – the banquet to be continued! More fun to come~! 😀

But before I end off, I shall dedicate this meaningful video I koped from Shu Hui’s blog to the cute couple! (I hope she’s not gonna sue me for plagiarism anytime soon :P)
