Yup last month we received a "Red Bomb" I got to see how a traditional Chinese Wedding is done. Not really traditional la but it incorporated most of the Chinese wedding elements la. If truly wanna follow the traditional way...adui.... will be a lot lo.
We were invited by the Groom side. When we arrived, the Groom and his buddies had already gone out to fetch the bride.
Manyak terrer leh. Mamarazzi didn't know have such thing leh. This One-stop Centre caters for everything....from morning buffet for the morning session, photographers and videographers, prayer items, tea ceremony items and even "Dai Kum Jie" for hire!
"Dai Kum Jie" (大妗姐), is something like Chaperon for the Bride. In the old days, Dai Kum Jie have to be some one that is happily married with loads of children. Dai Kum Jie during the whole ceremony will have to speak auspicious words and help to guide the Groom and Bride through the ceremony.
The new Couples then gave him and Angpau (red packet) and he opens the car doors for the new Couple.
All these while the Dai Kum Jie non-stop saying auspicious words and they proceed to pray for blessing.
Then comes the Tea Ceremony. Not going to post up photo of the Tea Ceremony as it was kinda private . Basically the Groom and Bride gave tea to their elders and their elders gave them gifts or Angpau in return. Guess, you have seen many Tea Ceremony in television drama to know how it went lah.
Next was the family photography session .
They had this "potty" wrapped with red paper. The male child have to break the red paper and retrieve fruit from the potty. Of course the potty is a brand new one lah.
The Dai Kum Jie was saying something about having child early and etc .
Then both the Groom and Bride rolled the fruit on the bed. Also something about having children early lah.
Followed by a male and female child were asked to roll on the bed pulak. It sure looks fun.
They even have Cendol leh! Fuiyoh...best lah.
Me...easy la... just a quick shower and a change of cloth... sprayed some "toilet water" .
Stationed by the door, Mamarazzi
