From this moment on (1)…

My missus and I flew to Kuching on Thursday last week for my cousin, Kpg Nangka Boy’s wedding on Saturday. It was certainly a grand event with next-of-kin from all over Sarawak – Sibu, Bintulu and Miri, Sabah…and even as far as Melbourne and Brisbane in Australia…

We were at his mother’s house first thing in the morning as he and his bride-to-be had to go and pay their respects to his late father, my uncle. The bridal limousine arrived…

…and the ceremony was carried out promptly.

It must have been a very auspicious day as there were many couples tying the knot on that date, so the two and everybody else had to sit around and chat and wait…

…for the turn in the queue to go to the St. Joseph’s Cathedral for the wedding service.

One of the two best-men was Jeremy, my blogger-friend whom I had not seen for so many years – ever since he went to Sibu once a long time ago. It certainly was so nice to bump into an old acquaintance again after all this while and we had a photo taken together. He’s the one standing on the far left…

Me and my cousins and friends

Also in the photo is to my left, my ex-student, Louis J…and the outstanding-looking guy next is my very handsome and very generous cousin from Kota Kinabalu, Kpenyu (…and hopefully, after reading this, he would send me more giant prawns! Muahahahaha!!!)…and after him, in a checked shirt, is Alexius, another ex-student of mine who was in my 1993 debate team together with TheOtherCousin, standing far right.

Soon, it was time to proceed to the cathedral for the service. Here, you can see the bride’s father walking down the aisle with his daughter and handing her over to the groom…

The service went on smoothly, the vows and wedding rings were exchanged and the newly-weds walked out of the church as man and wife…

Then we had to go to their brand new house for the tea ceremony…..but that will be in another post. Stay tuned!
