Sure lah must have alot alot of photos.. my first MARRIED cousin wor.(I’m working on the rest….they don’t call me a miniature “kepo aunty” for nothing.). But my cousin-in-law and my cousin are practically married already…since they’ve been together from 2000. They were even classmates in Catholic High School, how about that?
Sorry ah if you’re on dial-up.Â
If you want to call me ugly here.. CAN… because this one is done on purpose. 🙂
My Singapore cousin sister, Abby, came for the wedding. I brought her out to yamcha with my friends. Ahahahha. She’s only 10. Imagine the things we talked about. Now, somewhere in Singapore, a bunch of 10 year old girls will need to have their brains washed to be pure again. Sigh.
l-r: Daryl, Gaya, Abby, Chee Kiang(he is doing a peace sign, not poking his lips)
My other mafia family members came along. All black colour one.
l-r: Justin, Mervyn, Ted(cousin’s bf), Jacqueline, Derek, Daryl
Yup, you guessed it. I’m a wanna-be Kid Chan. But It’s quite nice, don’t you think?
My other cousin(brother of the groom)’s girlfriend, Samantha, signing the guestbook.
This is Samantha! She’s a MAS stewardess and she was entertaining me with various stories of fussy passengers. There was oneÂ about a woman trying to open the aeroplane door…while the plane was flying.
My Aunty Jenny(3rd from left)’s legion of sisters. I don’t know their names…sorry. But don’t they all look alike?
=) Beautiful arrangement. That’s what happens at the wedding of a senior art director.
Interesting rose-carnation display at the marriage registration table.
Another kid-chan wanna-be shot.
l-r: Me and Jacqie.
Here comes the bride!
The minister kept me and my cousins cracking up. He cannot pronounce “bless”. So it’s always, “May God Breast You,”. It went on for so many times.. And when he did the “Will you [mrs. name] take [name] as your lawfully wedded husband?”, he said the wrong name. My cousin-in-law’s name is Kwee Fong. And he was like, “Diana..”.
O-kay. Better the minister who slips up than the groom,Â I always say.
L-r: Derek, Me, Jacqie, Ted.
And they are married!! At long last.
Abit dark…but you get the picture.

My Uncle make spoil…
A better one.
A mini fraction of the gargantuan Ho family. There are like 130 members in total if you count the Malaccans, KLites, Singaporeans, Americans, Australians, British, Hongkees and Chinese nationals. What to do, who ask my great grand father to have 5 wives and 14 children. Each child produce an average of four children. Each of that four children produce two more. Hong Fei korkor, your turn now.
Then it was time to throw the bouquet. Hahahha, yes, still got such thing. See my Aunty Doreen so ready to catch the bouquet. She was telling my Uncle Yew Pun, “Ok, I cheep(catch, in cantonese).” And Uncle Yew Pun was like, “Ok! I tong!(block, in cantonese)”. Wahahahha.
Look at her!! So cute!! Hahahha….Supposed to be for the unmarried lasses somemore! Give chance!!
Hahahahha walk away with it somemore.
ehehhehe..one more time. This time it was for real.
OHMIGOD DAMN EMBARRASSING PHOTO OF ME. Now the whole world knows how desperate I am to get married.
But the flower dropped in front of me and Jacqie….and we stood dumbfounded. Instead of picking it up, the both of started squabbling, “YOURS LAh..take lah!!! Not mine la..yours!!!”
Let’s face the reality. She’s three years older than me…… obviously let her win lor. 🙂
Um, 15 years ago, it was a barbie doll. (Serious! After Mervyn, this is the one person whom I fought alot with as a child. hahahha. )
Uncle Yew Pun was too traumatised aboutÂ his beloved BMW being decorated with SOFT TOYS.
My hiau cousin and her bf. 🙂
it’s good to be married!
Beautiful sparkles from my new heels!
Back at the groom’s place in USJ for the tea ceremony.
Aunty Jenny drinking the Lai Lai Cha. (Mother in law tea…no lah, no such name. I made it up.)
Aunty Ping lovin’ it! I’m working on forcing her eldest son(who’s the eldest among all the cousins(there are 8 of us, I’m the third youngest).) to get married. He is not getting any younger, dei!
Wah! Even Crackers, the family dog is here to witness the auspicious event.
Then the younger generation has to cham cha(serve tea) for the bride and groom. My simplistic grandmother was like, “HAIYA, ng sai kom ma fan la, shake handÂ chau takÂ la,”(Haiya, no need so mafan la. Shake handÂ can alreadyÂ la!) I think if she was born in this era, she would have opted for a simple marriage registration and then head off for her honeymoon.
Got Ang Pow to take, sure happy. Speaking of which, I left mine at their house. SADDDDD….

The wedding dinner was held at Palace Of The Golden Horses.
My dad’s reaction when my mother and Aunty Ping told him they ended up in Puchong(when they’ve actually reached the hotel, not knowing where they are, STILL. Women drivers.),

One of the many many wedding photos that were projected throughout the wedding dinner.
l-r: Dad and part of Uncle Eric, who is the same age(28) as my cousin Hong Fei, but he is my uncle. He doesn’t like me to call him Uncle. Too bad. Uncleuncleuncleuncleuncleuncle.:D
ORGASMIC. *HEART* *HEART* *LOVE* *LOVE* *LOOOOOOVE*
Camwhorin’ around..sorry ah.
L-r: Mervyn The Giant, Derek, Ted, Jacqie, Me, Hong Weng.
l-r: Jacqie, Uncle Yew Pun and Aunty Doreen posing with their very talented brother/son.
See his magic fingers go! He plays the piece, Fantasy Impromptu, with his eyes closed also can.
We found a mirror.
I like the soft colours of this picture..:)
There was a cocktail session outside.
Waiting for the food to be served..l-r: Mervyn and Derek
Jacq and Ted
UNCLE Eric and girlfriend Cherry.
Dad and Aunty Ping were the emcees for the night. The both of them has got a gift for the gab!
Cousin Hong Fei created this short animation…..and Dad and Aunty Ping did the voice overs. So noisy! Click on the video:P
I LOVE THE FLAIR SKIRT. So Disney Princess-ey.
After that, I had to help my mother and Aunty Ping to get into their costume for their chinese opera performance. Here I am playing with their fake long “siu cheh” hair.
I think I look good with alot alot of hair.
Mum in full costume with Kwee Fong.
Aunty Ping and Mum.
The story is about the King who goes into a restaurant..and the lady boss who captured his heart does not believe him. My classmates would know this song as I always sing it in class. LAaAaAaaAaaN HOIiiiiIiiii~~~~~~~….
UNCLE Eric decided to play a game on the couple..
….they had to kiss until everybody finished saying Yam Seng!
About 1/4 of the entire Ho Family.
Ahhh.. now comes the good part. Photos of ME with the roses galore!
The bridal arch(is it what it is called?) had sooo many roses…couldn’t help taking a bouquet worth of it home.
*sniff* *sniff* Twas’ the sweet scent of thy rose that hath captured my heart…bla bli blu bleh bloh. I’m crapping.
l-r: Pimple, Rose, Brother.
Ah hah!! My new friendster photo!!
l-r: Mervyn and Derek pan cute.
Ooooh!!! Hiau por pose!
The expression in this one is far better!
Will you marry me?
Yes I will!
“B-b-but you’re a boy.”.
“Yes…I know.*air liur meleleh*”.
Melancholic expressions and roses look good together!
Got Abby to play with us too! Hehehe.
Okay, last one. Promise!
And then I got greedy..
I didn’t even bother to count! But it sure as hell smelt great! My grandmother was like, “Ngo seng sai mei man kor kom heong ge mui kwai fa!(Never in my life have I smelt such sweet smelling roses!)”. And I was like, “HAhahh.. kong kong mou song kor pei lei meh?(hahaha.. Grandmother never give you before meh?). “Haiya!! Lei ge kong kong tu ng romantic geh! (Haiya! Your grandfather not romantic also).” LOL.
After the dinner, we had to take the clavinova, costumes and other miscealleanous things back to the carpark.
And we lost our way … at 1am in the Palace of The Golden Horses. Bloody huge place…
Lovely view outside though.:) Silly me, I did not take the front of the hotel. God knows, it was quite a spectacular sight!
