Kim's Wedding And Great Grandma's Bday

Went back to Penang for my mom's sister's wedding and great grandmother's birthday! Initially, I thought of bringing my wife back to Penang just to have some fun but it turns out to be that, I'm the so-called "official photographer" as they do not hire any photographers.

It is my first time doing all these, and my first time in everything. It was so hard to cope that I thought I might failed. But true enough, some of the pictures are not really that good, I still have some good ones with me. So, let's starts with the wedding first.

My grandpa giving a speech at the wedding night


My grandma making an "O.K." pose


The aunties and praying ceremony


Kim the bride


I like this gown of hers


I think the weather is a bit too hot for her to smile. HahA!


Kim and her hubby in their new room


See how happy she is?


Sharon and Henry


L to R: Cherry, Mom, Sharon



And the wedding lasts for 2 days. Then we move on to the third day for my great grandma's birthday. Please don't ask me how old is her.. cause... I also don't know. All I know is that, she's close too 100. HahA!

We went to this restaurant called Restaurant Ocean. It is located at a rural area so I don't have much expectation in it BUT, I turned out to be so damn wrong. It's interior design is really superb and I think if I have the time and I can stay there, I can snap pictures for the whole day!

Buddha's head


Buddha's statue


Art on wall. Damn nice


Buddha's eyes


Curtain


Coin


Felt like I'm in Hawaii


Bamboo vase


Birthday cake of great grandma. Notice the candle lotus


The great grand children


The candle lighted up, and opened itself. Then the birthday melody came along from it



Then we have our dishes.

Cold plate, of which is not so cold


Longetivity Bun - so sad only left 2 when I reached there to snap.. and eat. And ate only 1!!!


Shark fin soup


Herbal chic


"Lo Hon Zai"


Dunno what is this called


Prawn


Longetivity Noodle


Bai Guo in pumpkin, with mashed yam. Damn nice!


Desserts




Well, that's all for the updates! Haha! One thing damn sad can? Out of so many hundreds of people whom I've met, only 2 leng luis I spotted. What? You want pictures? Haha! For you to know, for me to see. = D


p/s: I took a total of amazing number of 1140 shots in 3 days!!! Godlike!

chickens are so much easier to breed than sharks...
and most people only eat the sharks fins, and when the ppl cut off the sharks fins, they just dump the sharks back into the ocean, and the sharks drown cos it is their fin that helps keep them afloat...

kenny sorry for the debate in your blog
