Hitched the KL Way

It's been a while since I've been to a wedding, and so it was with eager anticipation that I drove up to Kuala Lumpur on Sunday to attend the wedding of a colleague. Now this was my first ever Malaysian wedding and I was curious to see if there were any differences from the rather sedate affairs I'm used to in Singapore. My observations...
  • Wedding guests dress better on the whole, especially the women

  • Guests actually arrive on time

  • Everyone is less inhibited and willing to make a fool of themselves


The father of the bride is pictured above belting out a string of evergreens on the Electone. Apparently he decided to play for most of the night, most of the songs unrecognisable to me as they sounded the same after the second one. The ipod came in handy.

Dinner conversation at my table, I didn't know half the folks, centered on which female guest is engaged and to whom, which young lady was single and available and which female preferred other females. This sort of talk went on for hours.

All in all, it was quite a fun affair. Looking forward to my next one... whenever that might be as Mr Sanguine has hardly any single friends or acquaintances remaining.

That "father of the bride "karaoke" thing seems to be pretty common in them malaysian weddings... I wonder why...

I do have to agree that they are a lot more fun than the ones back here though...
