Alex and Grace (ground zero)

Well, Alex Lam and Grace Tan's tagline of "Wedding to Remember" was really befitting. Yes... the couple's big day was today, at the Palace of the Golden Horses... very beautiful garden-style wedding..all the guests were colour coded; family members were in purple shades and friends were in white... the event started at about 5pm...with the bride being chaufered in by what was described as "a very fast Malaccan sports-car", fondly known commonly as the "beca" (trishaw)... that was a very nice touch...
Grace was given away by her father at the altar...and after singing some praise and worship and the pastor saying a prayer of blessing, the exchange of vows started..check out Alex's kissing tecniques when the green light was given by the pastor... looks like a scene reminiscent of Gone with the Wind....
Well, the festivities continued with the usual photo-taking and hugging and
greetings... we were then ushered to the dinner area... the centre courtyard later in the evening... the hustling and bustling of the hotel staff and culinary personnel were ambient all around us... on the way walking out to get some fresh air... i chanced upon Datuk Marina Mahathir...whom later I discovered was a family friend of the bride's family...

Dinner was interesting... a prolific spread of local dishes and western... I particularly like the roast lamb and the sirloin steak.. the sweet and sour prawns were not to shabby and i really walloped the fresh, raw muscles...
the butter sauteed garoupa was a nice treat also...

Francis and Asther came over for the dinner. 'Uncle' had a migraine attack earlier, that's why he couldn't make it for the ceremony...well...as well that ends well.. still... his troubles weren't over... turned out that a clumsy photographer tipped over some oil lamps on the floor and spilled some on Asther's new shoes... and when Francis tried to assist, he got his finger burned by the hot lamp... bummer...


Well, it turns out that that wasn't only the suprise for me...I bummed into my former English teacher , Mrs. Chong aka Mdm. Nah... with her husband... incidentally the older brother of Paul Chong of Messrs Paul Chong and Nathan... she hardly recognised me... in fact, she chanced upon me when she asked me whether the queue she was in was the one heading towards the satay shack...
Well, all in all, the whole day turned out to be a real treat... I made mental notes of the event ... in case... not to say anything is going to happen soon... not giving any hints... nope... I only pray for the best for Alex and Grace... and for journey mercies, as they will be taking flight to Prague (Czech Republic) for their honeymoon soon...
