After the morning ceremony, the dai kum jie asked me not to wash my hair as I have “wealth” sign on me. Woot! That save me some time in the afternoon since I do not need to wash hair, although I was slightly reluctant not to wash it. However, for my husband, I will not wash it! I want to bring him wealth! Hahahah.
After packing the things that we are supposed to bring to the restaurant, I managed to grab a 15 minutes nap / rest.
When we want to leave that time, it started to rain… HEAVILY! My goodness. Our schedule was slightly delayed and my makeup artist has to wait for me for 30 minutes.
When we reached there, I quickly went for the makeup while Scott settles other matters. After makeup and with my hair still in curlers, I went and practice my guzheng with keyboard player. Yup, I engaged my guzheng teacher’s band. It is a 5 piece band that consisted of guzheng, keyboard, flute, guitar / pipa and an Erhu. It is a western and eastern fusion band that play English and Chinese songs.
About 6.30pm, relatives start coming in. I went back and settled my hair. After settling the hair and changed into my white gown, we were ushered into another room for tea ceremony. The tea ceremony is for those who couldn’t make it for the morning session.
Then dai kum jie asked me to stay inside the room and not come out until the march in. I was like, “What! I dressed so pretty and I wanna take pictures with my friends!”. She said she is just informing me. I didn’t follow her instruction, so I went out and take photos table by table with my friends.

At 8.20pm, it is our march in time! So excited!

We managed to eat the first and second course before I went back for a second change in dress. At the same time, our SDE photos slide show and video were played.
After the second march in, we were ushered on stage to do the cake cutting and champagne toasting ceremony.
|Still got time to do "peace" while march in|
|Pouring champagne. Oh the champagne was delicious!|
After watching our pre-wedding slideshow, it was my performance time! Slightly nervous but I had calmed down as compared to my rehearsal time. My hands were not shivering anymore. The lights were dimmed, so I couldn’t really see the front, and I won’t be so nervous. I managed to perform my two songs: Colors of the Wind (English) and The Moon Represent My Heart (Chinese) with just a slight mistakes. Hahaha.
Then I went for a 3rd change in gown – the gown that my BFFs got me. When I came back out, it was yum seng time. Table to table.
After that, we said thank you and bid goodbye to our guests.
After all those happenings, when I reach home, I was still wide awake! I think it was due to the adrenalin rush. I really enjoyed the day and night!
