Weekend wedding(s) Pt. 2

Cousin had his second wedding dinner the following day at Penang Club. I was there early since I was the MC for the dinner.

Didn't practise at stupid jokes for the wedding since my cousin is quite eccentric in nature - dunno if he can appreciate jokes from me. So I just did whatever they put on the paper for me to announce.

The noisiest part of the thing was the tea ceremony at 5.30pm, right before the dinner.

The seniors came early to the tea ceremony

The ceremony felt a bit disorganized as they didn't have a "tai kham cheh" to run the whole ceremony. It felt more like everyone just queued up for their turn.

This time it was a straight forward 8-course dinner with no drunken relatives doing their best with the karaoke machine. Not even a big traditional "yam seng". very quiet, stylish and elegant - just the way my cousin wanted. The only entertainment was my cousin attempting to dance with his bride to the tune of "The theme from Pink Panther". I was seated at the main table but I spent most of my time walking around to look busy - too bored to stay at one table with old people.

Even though I was back for 3 days 2 nights, all my time was taken up by the wedding so it was still a very, very short trip back. Will probably plan another trip back in early or late August with no agenda.
