So it was finally the day! Finally my 2 good friend’s big day! Woke up at like 4.30am because I was one of the sisters~ To be honest, this is one of the reasons why I dislike being bridesmaid, but of course exceptions for my close friends and loved ones, cause they are definitely worth more than my sleep! ((:
Bumped into the brothers (buddy and gang) while limping to the train station, and I was still hoping it wasn’t them when I saw the bridal car driving towards me…Zzzzzz. Damn paiseh because I was carrying so much stuff (laptop + clothes to change for the lunch and etc) -.- But I should have asked for a ride since my heels were killing me in less than 5 minutes walk! Thank goodness Queena’s friend – Rachel was fetching us from the station!
We had less than 30 minutes to prepare for the games before the brothers would reach, so everything was really in a rush! Cause the Na-sisters were still putting on makeup and etc, while I also needed to do some adjustments to my outfit. Luckily we still managed to prepare everything just on the dot when the guys reached! Haha!
I didn’t get to take many pictures during the games since I was also involved~ But I think our games were pretty easy, totally nothing humiliating or anything because Queena would hate that, let alone the petty groom.
Started the games from the playground downstairs and the guys were just supposed to find the alphabets hidden all around the playground to form the words – I Love Queena, within a certain timing. In the end they did not manage to complete in time -_- First game failed liao.
So as a result, their forfeit was this! Hahaha! The groom had to sing a S.H.E love song lying on top of the brothers, who were in push-up positions~ Lucky Kai! Did not have to endure the heavy weight of Gui xD
But being the fittest in our Clique, Kai did his part for the next game, which was to piggyback the fat Gui up 7th floor! I wasn’t involved in this game because I had to rush up to lock the gates and prepare for the next game, and we all thought they would take some time to reach upstairs.
I was even happily ironing my hair when suddenly the guys were already at the gates! Apparently, the Na-sisters said the game wasn’t a problem for the guys at all because Kai alone could piggyback Gui up 3-4 levels!
The next game was a questionnaire consisting of 10 questions about Queena~ For every wrong question, one of the brothers gotta sacrifice a hair from the eyebrow or leg…hahaha! Gui totally sucked in this because he doesn’t even know the name of Queen’s university!!! Tsk tsk. And guys getting married, please remember your mother-in-law’s birthday…LOL.
The next game was the one that the brothers hated the most and also the one that drove our petty groom angry on his wedding day -_- Basically it’s a Bingo food game consisting of disgusting food like bitter gourd + wasabi, gummy bears soaked overnight in salt water, raw celery + garlic, blue cheese + raw onions, spicy Korean ramen with chilli padi and etc.
Well, I think you can tell from Kai’s face how disgusting they were ._. But I have to emphasise that none of the games were suggested by me because by the time I was there for the bridesmaids’ meeting, everything had been planned…hahaha!
The groom was still smiling away while his brothers suffered, until he poured all the remaining ones into his mouth (because none of the brothers could take it anymore) and he almost puked! That’s when he kinda flared up and started complaining THE WHOLE DAY about how his mouth stinks from the disgusting blue cheese =/
I don’t know if any other groom has ever flared up on his wedding day over gate crash games so far, but I think our poor photographer was kinda shocked…hahaha! But we were kinda used to it because we know how petty Gui is, just wasn’t expecting him to really get so mad over these games on such an important day 😛 So Leo!!!!!!
Signed with a thumbprint! 逃不了了～
Here’s a glimpse of the gatecrash, thanks to Winnie!
Then during the brothers’ shot, I blurt out to Shrine, “你的肚子！！！” And everyone burst out laughing! But I didn’t do it to embarrass him! I was just trying to tell him that his tummy flesh was showing ._.
Couldn’t wait to get out of that dress because it doesn’t look nice on me ._. Another reason why I dislike being sisters. Not that the bridesmaid’s dress is not nice, but I’m just not suitable for such dress…haha! I am very fussy with materials and designs, but I also didn’t wanna have too much requests for the dress since it’s not my big day =/
Tea ceremony at groom’s place! We were all so ignorant about the traditions and Gui’s grandpa had to guide the sisters step-by-step what to do while he was being served the tea…hahaha!
The little brother 敬茶-ing to his elder brother and sister-in-law! 😀
Time for the bride to change outfit before heading back to her house for another tea ceremony! This also means I finally had time to take out the camera that I borrowed from Lyn to take some pictures! Haha!
A handful of us headed straight to the lunch venue instead of going back to Queen’s place because we still had stuff to prepare. The bridesmaid duty may be over but I still had the video to worry about and also my emcee duty! x.x
Had so much to coordinate with the staff at Orchid Country Club’s Peach Garden and thankfully they were really helpful! Everything went pretty smoothly even though there were some delays due to some of the important guests being late. So damn nervous because it’s my first time emceeing and I get super nervous even during presentations back in school…Zzzzzz. All thanks to buddy for pulling me into his “water“ (拉我下水)!
But I think I did quite an okay job because I was expecting much stuttering but I did not say anything wrongly at all! The usually eloquent Buddy, who was doing the Chinese version was the one who misread his lines a few times…hahaha! Luckily I wrote the script so I know it better! 😛
Though it was a small lunch banquet, it was still kinda stressful to be on the stage with so many eyes staring at you! Thank goodness Clique was seated all the way at the back, if not I might have 笑场！
The wedding lunch started with the solemnisation ceremony, and that means break time for buddy and I! Took the chance to snap some pictures…hehe! Who cares about professionalism~ My duty as a friend capturing the precious moments of my 2 good friends is more important than my duty as the emcee!
I actually prepared a longer script just in case the guest had to wait a long time for the first dish to be served and we could crap some stuff to entertain them. Thought we wouldn’t be needing it, but in the end we had to use the script! And the worse part was even after we finished the backup script, the dish were still not served yet! I was like thinking, “Oh shit. What else are we gonna say!” But I decided to end it off as scripted because I didn’t wanna come up with something impromptu that buddy couldn’t “接台”…hahaha! Luckily once I finished the closing line, the first dish was served right away!!! PHEW~
Only could enjoy a few dishes before we were up on the stage again for the video montage~ I was so worried that there would be some technical error or something and my hard work will not be fully enjoyed by everyone! There were indeed some problem initially like the video didn’t show on both screens, but thankfully the staff managed to solve it and the video was played smoothly! 😀
It was a very simple montage because I had very limited time to do, but I think I managed to capture all the moments that the silly couple had went through together! Most importantly, the bride was indeed touched by my video! Haha!
And then it was the couple’s wedding speech, which got the bride, the bride’s mother, and the Na-sisters to tears! As the emcees, we were kinda lost as to what we should do – whether we should interrupt the awkward moment and say something, or we should just let the emotional scene continue~ In the end, we decided to just let the bride say her words because it was a touching scene (:
Even I was touched and almost wanna tear on stage!!! Because I could understand why Queen was being so emotional, given the things she has went through these years with her sisters and I would have too, if I were her! I have always thought that I will definitely end up in tears during my wedding speech, because I am 哭包…hahaha!
Gui tried to salvage the situation by saying things to make Queen laugh~ He said he doesn’t understand why everyone is crying because he promised that everything will still stay the same, as in Queen will still get to see the sisters and her mum…hahaha!
And being the eldest sister, Queen has always had that responsibility to take care of her 4 sisters since young. I remember she even once said to us that she did thought of not getting married, so that she can take care of her sisters. So it’s not hard to imagine why the Na-sisters were touched by their eldest sister’s words too! :’)
Check out her 小幸运 performance! 😀
Took the opportunity to take a wefie with every single one in Clique! 😀
And last but not least, with my best girls’ talk partner in Clique! Thank you for all the HTHT sessions we had together and I am so glad that Thapa brought you into our Clique!!! So happy for you (((((((:
I have known Gui and Queen for 14 and 12 years respectively, which is pretty much half of my life so far! We have seen each other grow, physically and mentally, watch each other go through different stages of life, witnessed them going from friends to couple, and now I am truly happy to be able to witness this new stage of their lives!
Forgot to mention that OOTD was 90% sponsored by Sis! I was having a headache thinking of what to wear and thank goodness that I found this new dress that Sis gave me some time ago and I had not have the chance to wear! Belt was also bought by her some time ago and necklace was borrowed from her! Hahaha! So only the shoes are mine xD
Back for a nap because everyone was exhausted after waking up so early, but we met up again after a few hours for dinner! Suddenly it felt like school days when we were so siao-on, meeting up almost everyday~
