The second part of the wedding day (see first part) was held at City Bayview Hotel and it started off with the tea-ceremony for Shane’s side of the family, where Su-Fern is officially welcomed into the family.
The entire process went by smoothly and with much hilarity.
When the tea-ceremony had completed, everyone headed to the reception hall to find their tables. This part of the evening was slightly hectic as we helped greeted and ushered the guests, and made sure that the angpows or red money packets and gifts did not go astray.
What followed in the night were the usual speeches and dancing. There were also some good singing sessions, toasts and lots of good food and liquor. A few of the guests, including Su-Fern the bride worshipped the porcelain goddess that night. 😉
I had a really fantastic time. Congratulations again to Shane and Su-Fern on your big day. 🙂

Below is a highlight clip (2:52) showing crazy Choy, who is an uncle to both Shane and I even though he’s the same age as us, singing and dedicating “Stand by Me” to the happy couple, Choy leading a celebratory toast to the two families, and Shane and Su-Fern singing a traditional Hokkien song.
