It's a perfect day to get married, I shall say. Weather conditions are awesome and my mood is cheerful. (as if I am getting married LOL) Today is the auspicious day of Dr. Chan Kok Gan and Ms. Yin Wai Fong's wedding, the holy matrimony of two educators. Both Ms. Yin and Dr. Chan had been my Biology tuition teachers, and Dr. Chan is a lecturer at Universiti Malaya while Ms. Yin runs a tuition centre. I should say that both of them looks perfect for each other, and it's a blessing for me to witness them tying the knot. Actually I got a shock when Yan Yan told me that they're going to marry. But since they invited us (their ex students) to the wedding, well, why not?
So the day started with me worrying what to wear. So, I wore a simple skirt with a brown top with 3-inch-heels. Well, I pretty regretted wearing the stupid heels because I hardly can walk fast in it. And it pains too!
Actually I wanted to wear contacts but somehow in the morning, I can't open my eyes big enough to chuck in the lenses. So if I wear glasses just forget about mascara. =D
Zhi Ling drove us there and I have to say, I have not met her in such a long time. So kinda missed her a lot and when I saw her today, I was very happy to see her doing fine in college. Well, at least she has a good life now. Yan Yan and Si Jia are also close friends of mine who I have not met them since errr...last year? I was extremely excited to meet them once again, and we crapped about Yan Yan's cartoon voice and Si Jia's fear of cats and valentine's day as we drove our way to PJ.
The very syokked driver, Lim Zhi Ling.
The blasting passengers: Yan, me, Jia.
We reached First Baptist Church to see a small crowd there. So says that Dr. Chan just wish to hold a small and private wedding ceremony, just inviting close friends, family and students. Hence there were a lot of UM students around too. So as usual, while waiting, just camwhored like mad.
There were other students of Dr. Chan too, just an age younger than us. Yoong Yong and Phiak Ling.
Actually there were more juniors of us but they were busy because they were a part of the choir.
Firstly there was the wedding processional. The bride, which is Ms. Yin, walked down the aisle, given away by her father. Well, she did looked extremely pretty.
The waiting groom, aka Dr. Chan. With Pastor Tan.
Well, Dr. Chan did look very busy today. Seems like he had a lot of stuff to do. Cannot even catch a picture of him standing still. LOL
Afterwards there were prayers, worship in songs, scripture reading and a message by Pastor Tan.
The choir: Be Thou My Vision, Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee
Pastor giving the message. A lot of 1 Corinthians 13.
After that, the scene we always see in movies: The exchanging of vows, aka the I do, I do part. Then, exchanging of rings. They bought the rings in Paris man!
Signing the Marriage Register.
After benediction and the wedding recessional, we were treated some refreshments, so, the wedding ceremony ends. I was expecting for Ms. Yin to throw the bouquet of flowers for us to catch, well, seems like I was anticipating the wrong thing.
But I did manage to capture a photo with them! But I looked like shit. Well, who cares anyway?
Lastly I would like to say: Congratulations Dr. and Mrs. Chan for tying the knot. May your love last forever, united in marriage.
PS: The wedding ceremony was very touching. And it just showed me how brave people can be if they dare to love and be loved. They are willing to commit themselves to each another by marriage, till death do us apart...
Another thing Pastor Tan said I felt very true:"...your wedding lasts for a day, but your marriage lasts forever..."
DesaPark City Coffee Bean later with the girls to catch up with the latest gossips. So hence, talked a lot, drank a lot, and was definitely happy with the company.
Loving Coffeebean a lot. Reminiscing about the past where we used to come here to do our study groups. The tension, the mood, the workload. It's all over now. Left my soul with a blank space, never going to be fulfilled.
Love ya girls!
