We made our way to JB for the weekend as it was the weekend that saw our buddy Kavin get engaged to his girlfriend Bavani of three years!!!
I remember the day he brought her as his date to my wedding reception and claimed it was his ‘cousin’! Three years on, here we are witnessing their new journey as newly engaged on Saturday and as a married couple legally as they got registered the very next day. However in true Indian fashion they will only be recognized as husband and wife in everyones eyes after their temple wedding next year in February so till then, technically there shouldn’t be a first night yet, ahem, haha
Stayed at Dorsett JB, which wasn’t too bad although from the outside, it looks soo like an apartment. Yes our hotel rooms are ALWAYS this messy, don’t judge me! Blame the dude relaxing on the bed when he should be tidying it up.
I decided to be an Indian rebel and wore a dress to the engagement because no 1. they ain’t my relatives to deal with no 2. because I can’t tie a saree on my own and no 3. because I can and please refer to no 1 again. Besides at this point of time, I have limited saree blouses that can actually fit me hence I’m saving my expensive grand saree for their wedding day. I still have alot of weight to loose. Meh.
All set as part of the convoy:
Anneh looking over to see if his beamer is still there, haha. SHOW OFF!
Can’t see his face? Here’s a clearer photo of the dashing groom Sorry girls, he’s officially taken
Making our way to the bride’s house
The exchange of trays by the parents – this photo is so similiar and reminds me of my own engagment.
Dude, you’re not suppose to doze off !
There were lots of people for the engagement (Heck you ain’t Indian if you don’t have the numbers for a ceremony), hence we had to stand right at the back but I’m guessing this part is where they exchange rings…..
Because you can FINALLY see the look of relieve on Kavin that she didn’t change her mind about getting engaged to him
A very very RELIEVED happy man. Mission accomplished! I’ve never seen this look on him when sober
Stuck Bonded for life…….
And what to do you know, my dress matches the carpet!
After the ceremony, we headed to a club to celebrate their engagement.
Now this photo looks just about right! Bottle in one hand and grinning at the camera…..so Kavin!
Ok he aint drunk (though it REALLY does look like it). He just made a 6 hour journey by bus from SG-Malacca so he could have awesome Nyonya lunch with us and spent another 2 hours back to JB! Things people do for good food.
All set to go home to see my BABY!
This one day trip made me realize how much I can miss and yearn for her when I”m away. I didn’t even drink (okay just one glass. And a half) and wasn’t in the mood to club because the only thing that was on my mind was Sairah Sairah Sairah! God how I missed that baby even though she’s just been in my life for 2.5 months! The feeling was mutual too because mom said she was quite cranky and only slept at 5 a.m that night because she was obviously missing something
Can’t wait for their wedding and reception next year where I can finally wear a saree and not look like a whale in it, and also witness Kavin’s journey to a responsible married man Time to grow up biatch!
