I went for a friend's wedding last weekend.
And there it was - the faint but distinct smell of the start of many "friend's wedding" to come in the near future.
And with that, I try not to think of my own series of unfortunate events.Date: 13 Jan 07
Venue: Dewan Raja Muda Musa, Shah Alam
The Couple: Sharinaz (dear Kak Shinaz) & Azreen.
We arrived sharp at 8pm, as was stated on the invitation card that I did not receive. In fact, I wasn't the only one who didn't receive an invitation, as our newly betrothed felt it was more economical to only send out two
cards, with everyone's names split evenly between them. =.=
But yeah, so we arrived on time, and I was under the impression that only Chinese weddings
are bound to start (at least) an hour late. As I soon found out though, it was actually more of a Malaysian
thing rather than that of a particular demographic, to subject wedding dinner guests to a long, excruciating wait.
In our case, we had to wait for exactly 1 hour and 50 minutes before we could start eating.
And here's the catch: the food was right in front of us the whole time!
-_- :: Colour coded pink. The one standing up, in the pretty pink kebaya, is Shinaz's sister ::
To distract ourselves from the very noticeable rendang and curry chicken in front of us, we resort to what we do best when we're bored and in possession of cameras. :: Jen and Shy :: :: Introducing Hsin, in black hair for the first time in 4 years :: :: Shima and Mr. Shima ::
8.30 pm, and bride was still no where to be spotted. =.= :: Finger deformities UNITE! (/>__<)/ This belong to Shy btw ::
9.00 pm, and on the brink of starvation.... :: Don't go there, woman... ::
Then finally at 9.30, they announced the arrival of the newlyweds. I gathered up every last bit of calories I had left in me and shamelessly barged my way through the now-standing crowd to capture the walk in.

Here's a story of Hsin, a 21 year old self-proclaimed chiq whose sweat, blood and tears within 11 months of SAM in Taylor's College, Malaysia had finally paid off with remarkable results. *bows* (^ ^) After one whole unproductive biotech year in Monash University Malaysia, has finally moved on to greener pastures of the arts business - specifically, in mass communications. As of now, is proudly a Murdoch University BA in Media Studies student in KDU College.
Has great love for:
food, photography, great metropolitan cities, British accent, witty and dry humour, posh bars and restaurants with artsy interior, Discovery Travel and Adventures, men who cook, hysterical laughters, compiling thematic CDs, dirt cheap accessories, Nick Hornby, all-you-can-eat buffet, Japanese everything, jazzy romantic soundtracks, BMW, bittorrent, Starbucks, moshpits, wild dancefloors, live gigs, he who sings like Jason Wade and John Mayer, technology in general
Has low tolerance for (among many):
over-sensitive men, durians, bad English in print, most Malaysian establishments, most government personnel, MPPJ, hypocrites, manufactured pop, cheap chocolates, modified national cars with blue lights and ugly spoilers, Toyota UNSER drivers, sleazy uncles in bars n clubs, our censorship board, George Bush.
Considerably cynical over boy-girl relationships, but never stopped hoping for her knight in shiny beemer.
