Weddings...

I attended 2 weddings - one 2 weeks ago; one just this past weekend.

Both are very casual and deviant from typical Singaporean styled-weddings. By that, I mean there is no walk-up-the isle in churches, nor traditional wedding dinner banquets in the hotels.

One opted for a casual home affair. They held a lunch buffet at their place. The other, was on a cruise. Just before you go "wow", it was a cruise to *nowhere*. (We had to spend 3 hours onboard; that's a good way of preventing your guests from slipping off early!)

Here's a photo I took.

If you are wondering what the guys are doing, it's the "yum seng" (or toast) from the groom's male colleagues, intent on making him drink a glass or 2 of beer.

And because we boarded at the World Trade Center (seems like there is one in every country), here's a view of the cable cars at dusk.


Lovely but not quite - some people suffered from sea sickness! I just had to refrain from overeating.

1. Scarves

Thanks for the votes, ladies. I, too decided that I don't like the left version as it results in undesirable pooling. Yet, I am skeptical that the right version will continue its color scheme once I add a new ball. The irony of using variegated yarn...! We want randomness but not too much right?

So I have ripped out the scarves! I decided the colors wouldn't go too well with the recipient so they are being balled up and will be gifted to another friend instead.


I hope she likes them.

Still on Ms Royal - on the 2nd sleeve now.
Hoping to get her done finally so it can go to the Meetup with me this Saturday.
Ms Saffron is being invited too.

Wedding looks lovely. Nowadays, the trend is moving towards unconventional for us asians huh? It would have been a big no no in the past. How things have change. Quite amazing :)
