Did you noticed the green plant? It has a special meaning & brought good fortune according to the Hokkien and apparently according to my sis, it was a "must" thing to accompany the bunch of gifts to the bride's home.........i've never see or heard of this though !!! Then, the Hennessy..... gosh........it just shows the typical strong Hokkien's essence !!!
The groom's parents came from Labis, Johor and arrived at my mom's place about noon, did whatever required, had some brief chats (sharing both their tales of how they each brought up their children, their efforts of providing them education with bloods & sweats & how they wish/hope their life would blossom with happiness, prosperities/wealth & etc etc with the 'marriage'). Prayers were done & they left while our family continue to prepare for the 'BIG' dinner at night where they will be back again with more other family members!!
It was suppose to be a very joyous day or weekend............but unfortunately i was up with something bad at the same time besides being super busy........sigh & sob i will...... yet i'd tried my best to enjoy first & solve the "problems" later..........updates soon!!
............remember the last time when my name was "MISTAKENLY" printed on the wedding menu card of my sister's dinner reception........hahaha, NOW this time, the wedding card has been correctly printed...........no more errors, hehe !!
And the strange thing was there were 2 versions of the cards. The red was obviously demanded by mom (being the superstitious one) while the pink/purplish one for the couples' guests!!
