Across the sea…

While all the festivities and celebrations were going on in Kuching on Saturday – 18th September, 2010, something similar was happening simultaneously across the South China Sea in Perth, Australia. My favourite and very handsome nephew, Quentin, was tying the knot with his gorgeous bride at a wedding ceremony in a beautiful and very romantic garden setting on that very same day…

If I’m not mistaken, the bride originally hails from KL…

There was, of course, the wedding reception and the toast…

…and the couple’s first dance as man and wife…

Like I had said in a previous post, it must have been a very auspicious date that day with a whole lot of people getting married. If it had been on a different date and at a time when I could get away from my filial duties and other commitments, I would have loved to fly over for the occasion…and I would stay for at least one or two weeks to tour the place as I have never been to Perth.

The groom’s sweet and pretty sister, Yvonne, will have her turn in April next year in Penang…

…but before that another niece of mine, Alicia, will be walking down the aisle too, come December, also in Penang…

Guess I’d better get down to booking my air tickets soonest…and in the meantime, heartiest congratulations once again, Quen…and WeeLeng, from me, Aunty Lucy and Melissa and all of us here. May the two of you be abundantly blessed with everlasting bliss in your life together.
