The Road to Penang @ Feb 2009 Part I

Was suppose to post this up looooooooooooong time ago, but too many delays and happenings, I'm going to tell grandma story here.... LOL...

Once upon a time, it's February of 2009.... One day, Mummy Joyce say one of the relative is going to married.... So we have to go attend the wedding dinner and wedding ceremony... No one can escape, so whole family go. (Except for Kian cos he's working... Lame excuses...)

The wedding dinner held at Friday night... That means right after fetch my lil bro Sheng from school, we'll head to Penang directly... What a packed schedule for my lil bro....

We're so boring on the road, we took stupid looking picture:
*Do we look alike???*

*Here's the cute boy, going to Penang for his 1st time!!!!*

Friday, working day... And we reach the Penang Bridge toll around 6pm++... You can imagine how jam is the traffic there... And ridiculously normal pay lane is faster than Smart Tag lane... Wow... My dad give up using smart tag, he went the normal toll lane...

Been stuck on the bridge for 40 minutes.... But guess what, the sunset was beautiful!
*Sea!!! I <3 Sea

We stop by at the Bukit Jambul Shell Station for a little bit touch up of looks and dressing. We all look totally tired!!! So a lil bit make up will do the trick~!!!

We reach the Red Rock Hotel just on time! Everybody is going into the ballroom...
*Ang Pao giving for the bride's family*

*Complimentary Chocolate... But usually taste not that good*

*Stage with MC talking but no one listening...*

We are seated with my aunt's family... Everybody is talking all the time cos really 'long time no see'... But there's someone who looks so emo that night, is her:
*My beautiful Paris-Hilton-look-alike cousin - Jill*

She was kinda emo and silent that night which totally UN-her... Later then we found the reason... But I'll keep that for the end of this post. ^^

MC asking people to stand up and welcome the newly wed!!! Applause~!!!
*Lots of colourful confettis!!!

The main table is just beside our table. So we can watch performance and uncles aunties sing karaoke clearly. I wonder why some of the aunties uncles dare to go up stage and sing when their voice sounds like squeaking or they just got no tempo at all!!!

We these audience are suffering, trying to survive from being deaf!!! X_X

Anyway, I found a way to ignore all those sound polution, by camwhoring! This sure makes people feel better! LOL!!!

*Like Mother Like Daughter, No?*

*They serve Carlsberg Gold that night.... Not much different the taste except the malt smell is more heavier than the normal ones...*

As usual, after 3rd to 4th dishes served, MC will start calling up the pair of newly wed to come up on stage for the 'champagne pouring session'. While pouring, the MC will talk alot of good and prosperity wishes to wish the newly weds.

After that, every guests are required to stand up for a toast session. Both family of bride and groom will have to go on stage to toast with the guests as an act of appreciation.
*Cakes and Champagnes*

*Yum Seng!!! 3 Times!!*

Honestly, I totally forgot how the dishes taste like for that night.... All I'm concerning is Jill's emo and my son keep on throwing tantrum when dinner is going on... Haihz... Bun have to carry him walk here and there just to calm him down....

Finally, when the dinner is over, he's able to move here and there, he become happy a bit! 
*LOL~ My son.... Many expressions...*

*Look of the day... I know I'm underdress... But I can't wear a one piece... >_<*

Lots of people gather at the main entrance of the hotel, discussing where to go and what to do next...  While waiting for my parents and aunties decision, let's take some random pictures!!!
*The Flower Car*

*I wonder how Club Moon Light looks like....*

*She's busy calling that somebody....*

*These 2 sisters really busy all the day, keep on expanding their social network! LOL*

*These two lil fellas are battling each other, see who's stronger! Some more act like Naruto! Jia Lat!*

*The not-so-famous Red Rock Hotel... My mum don't even know the exact location of this hotel... Hmm...*

This time, we're not staying at Auntie JoBee's house, instead, we're going to stay at a service apartment!!!

There are 3 rooms in one house, one room is for the bride and another 2 is for us! Yeah~!!! The air condition are cool enough~ And in each room, there are make up table and a huge mirror...

*The lighting were scary enough that the white balance are imbalance!!!*

Later that night, a traditional praying ceremony was held. My parents have to become the bride's 'parents' cos the bride's dad had passed away, it's not that prosperity if just the mother held the ceremony. You know chinese, always want prosperity and good luck and twin in whatever matters...

*The comb hair ceremony, can see this in alot of Chinese movie don't you???*

*Bride's Mum*

After the ceremony, me and Bun were soooo eager to have supper at somewhere near.... When you come to Penang, you don't eat, you might as well don't come....

So, Jill bring us to Say Bo Kio 洗布桥 to have some supper... And also, she calls up that special someone to meet with us, or to say, to let us see whether he pass or not...

The foods at the Say Bo Kio were nice! Especially the BBQ chicken wings... Wow~ So tasty!!! If you guys were visiting Penang, can go to Say Bo Kio to have supper. Not much place at Penang open up for supper you know...

Next, will blog about the traditional ceremony and what we do after that...

P.S: My son is having a bad time now, he got fever for two days... And still the fever come and go... Maybe it's because he's growing teeth... I'm not sure whether to bring him to doctor or not... Haihz... Worry~ >_<
