Signing my life away...

No that's not my ride for the wedding. Just a bus my sister saw on the way to my wedding.

Anyway, back to mine. Actually I did my signing on 20 Mar 2009, one day before my wedding ceremony. As our church pastor is not a registrar, we had to go to a nearby church to do the signing instead.

So I took the day off on Friday and went to the church in Desa Melawati with my family and Leslie, my best man who arrived the night before from Singapore.

Don't I look cute?

We had to wait outside for a while because wife-to-be went to have a quick lunch with her aunt.

We had to wait for the pastor- probably having his lunch too- so I decide to play with the video cam.

Finally the pastor came and explained to both us the implications of putting our signatures on the papers in front of us. After that, came the most important part of the ceremony.
There wasn't any oath ceremony as we would be having our church wedding the next day, we would say our vow then.

Why am I smiling? Coz I got one heck of a deal

Her turn

With any marriage registration, there must be 2 witnesses. The church advised to get our parents as witness, I believe, as a sign of parental blessings. As my mom lives in Penang and I'm staying with OCD, I asked him to be my witness instead.
Believe it or not, he couldn't sleep the night before....

Why is he smiling? Coz he doesn't have to worry about his brother dirtying his condo anymore!

After that, the pastor officially congrats us as Mr & Mrs Looi.

It's been more than a month and last Sunday our pastor asked if we're back from the moon.
The answer?
Still half-way there:)
