Malaysia Banquet

We are now semi-man-and-wife! Our Malaysia banquet has come and gone, and a very enjoyable one it was. It was the second time our parents have met at Batu Pahat, and I think they got along well enough despite the language barrier (thank goodness for the similarities between Teochew and Hokkien).

Generally no major hiccups, and though our dinner started slightly later than scheduled, it’d beat most experienced wedding dinner participant’s expectations. 🙂

(We’re now just slightly over two months away before our Singapore banquet and getting legally married!)

Printing of the Wedding Cards

Last Saturday we went down to the printers to get our cards done up. Were a little disappointed that they didn’t have as many customisation options as we’d expected, but it’d do. With this done, though, it’s a load off of our minds.

Our Malaysia banquet will be on this Saturday, held in ah hei’s kampung at Batu Pahat. Soon we’ll be semi-man-and-wife. 🙂

Because you asked for an update!

Hi all,

This post is just to let you know that we hear you! Some of you have asked for an update to this site, so here it is!

We’ve decided on a couple of colours of invitation card: a red and a white. The majority of them will be red, because it looks better with the 囍 (the Chinese word “xi” or happiness) on the front instead of “Wedding Invitation” which is just so blah. And being so rooted in the Chinese culture (yeah. right. maybe lishya.) we’ve decided to go with the chinesey version.

Ok, what else… we’ve also trying to get our wedding songs, though we haven’t really thought about the theme… anyway, here’s a couple of bonus pictures from the recent Mandarin Oriental Wedding Fair we went to (where we got some free food-tasting!):

Finally a big thank you for all those who have responded positively to our pre-wedding-invitation invitation. We will see you there (unless donn does the smart thing and runs away).
