So… yeap, we’re finally married!
Still I still don’t have that “wifey” feeling maybe because this was just our R.O.M and after that, I went back to KB and live my “single” life and took my long awaiting nap. Excuse me, I woke up at 5.30am that day can and for the past weeks, I was super busy with work doing some gardening, dusting, painting and all sort of kuli-kang.
And, we nearly couldn’t make it for this R.O.M date because there was a slight chance that it might clashed with an important date, which was not confirmed. Sampai Bobby had to clarify with the staffs and said, “What if we can only confirm if we’re registering on that morning itself? Is that okay?”
But all was well, alas.
Phewwwwwwwwww. Thank Sky Thank Ground.
The day before, Bobby asked what flower I want for the bouquet and I was like, need flower kah? No need lah. And he said, but everyone got flowers one wor. In the end, I just answered, bah.. the cheaper one, small hand bouquet can liao ah. And guess what, the bouquet was so big (okay lah not so big but still…), that I was often caught carrying the bouquet like a lifeless baby, hanging.
There were like 9 couples registering that morning, and I think about 5 or 6 tea ceremonies + wedding reception that day. Super good day I guess.
The day before, Bobby brought some moon cakes for my mom and put them inside the Utama Grand plastic bag and before he went back to BSB, I asked him to bring the ring pillow and our wedding bands along with him just incase I forgot to bring them the next day and put them all back into the plastic bag after taking out the moon cakes.
And he just brought the whole plastic bag to the court. When the registrar asked if we have our rings, Bobby took them out from a Utama Grand plastic bag. Ya, super glamour kan.
The ring pillow. Photo with heavy filters from IG.
He actually asked the registrar (I assume) if we could or should face each other when reading.
Super got feel this man. There were a few pauses because… erm.. it was our first time coming across with some big words that we never say before. Matrimony (the state of being married) and impediment (something that makes progress, movement, or achieving something difficult or impossible), okay new vocabs learned. You’re welcome.
And the registrar was super funny!
Vky was saying maybe I’ll get all teary and stuffs but that didn’t happened. I smiled and laughed so much throughout the process. After Bobby and I signed the paper, and also our witnesses (our parents), the registrar asked “Confirm ah? I’m signing… This is your last chance”
HAHAHAHHAHAHAHHHAHAHHA! He got style!
Just a moment before walking in the chamber, everyone was so nervous and upon seeing that cool registrar, we all felt relax already. I can imagine how a grumpy registrar can spoil the newly weds important day and I am really thankful for meeting such a cool person.
Hi everyone, meet my new family members.
Bobby was asking if we should start calling each other’s parents “Mom and Dad” but I’m not ready yet! Wait lah, wait till the tea ceremony can? I paiseh (malu). How did you all married people break the barriers ah?
And guess what my husband fresh from court did after that?
He did his own version of “sai” Oppa Gangnam Style with his buddy.
(Psy, Sai.. geddit?)
Okay, I admit, I was one of the people who “encouraged” him in doing this and he layan.
And after that, we went to Lucky Restaurant and seems like it’s a norm to do so!
I saw 3 other pairs of newly weds there too! And that makes 4 couples including us! I put that in my FB status and quite a number of my friends said they did that too! I’m guessing because
1) It’s “Lucky” (Super weak pun I know)
2) It’s near to the Supreme Court Building
And that’s how we got legally married.
When the rings combined, it’s now my wedding ring!
Okay, I googled and baru know that traditionally, I should be wearing the wedding band then engagement ring. Meaning, I tabalik the sequence.
It was love at first sight when choosing our wedding bands. Bobby didn’t want any stone on his ring because he finds it sissy. We went to quite a number of jewelry store but the rings we saw all just look very similar. Then I remembered Max ever recommended me JL Jewelry and we were amazed by the uniqueness of the rings we saw there. And, the price was good too!
So, R.O.M done. Next, the tedious part, our room and wedding invites.
