Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: I’m Yours
Zhengmin and his buddies provided the biggest laughs of the evening when the audience saw the video highlights of the gate-crashing ceremony. For the uninitiated, this ceremony requires the groom and his posse to bang at the doors of the bride’s abode and demand entrance. To prove their sincerity, they would first need to overcome the devious challenges the bridesmaids have come up with.
The bridesmaids were obviously not expecting Zhengmin and his band of brothers to come dressed as – get ready for this – Trojan warriors! Yes, that’s right. They drove all the way to Johor Bahru in full regalia, charged to the door with a full-bodied battle cry, and banged on the gates with their ‘swords’. (How they managed to go through Customs, I will never know.)
Here’s a photo of the couple in more normal attire:

When the crowd was not busy chortling at the video, they were entertained by the sublime music provided by Juliet, Ian and Feri. Juliet’s vocals were in fine form that night, while Ian and Feri weaved a seamless aural tapestry.
Eleanor did the honours as the host, and she charmed the crowd with her banter and friendly demeanour. She also gave the couple a challenge of her own: have a first dance! Weiling and Zhengmin readily obliged, to the audience’s delight.
Congratulations, Weiling and Zhengmin! Thank you for engaing us for your lovely wedding!

The live band was great and I love Juliet’s voice. Many of my guests loved her voice too. It was simply wonderful. Eleanor was such a wonderful lady and she’s good thatt night. We did not expect her to ask us up on stage for a dance, it was just too funny. =)
I will try to get some pics and send them to you. Stay tuned.
Lastly, thanks for everything.
Weiling & Zhengmin
