The Epic Miri Gathering
aka Tania & King’s 2nd coming. Er. Wedding.
Pictures stolen from Daniel’s facebook because I stupidly FORGOT to charge my camera before bringing it along.
What do you get when you lump together a group that hasn’t met up in FOUR years? Add in some alcohol, a wedding, some nighttime debauchery [YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW WHERE YOUR YOGA TEACHER WENT LAST NIGHT], a hospital trip [YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOUR YOGA TEACHER GOT UP TO LAST NIGHT], amazing food and you get…
The Miri Gang.
I swear I gained 2 pounds in 3 days, thanks to all the feeding from our lovely hosts 😉
“OMG SKINNY. EAT”.
Erm no thanks, I’m really full.
And I find my plate to be magically filled with food. Eeek.
Enough with the talky-talky, here are some pictures!
According to Chinese custom, the groom and his best men MUST pass a few … ‘tests’ / ‘trials’ / ‘tribulations’ set upon him by the bridesmaids. Because I am actually a sadistic person [and I have lots of ideas to plan], I have devised a few… erm, non-tortorous ways for the boys 😉
Have you ever brushed your teeth with a gooey mix of honey AND cocoa powder? Yeah. The boys seemed to enjoy this one cause it looked easy and it tasted good. But of course, I start off slow and easy and move on to …
I made a special SPICY jelly with topped with bugs and wasabi powder. What made this jelly special was that I made it with BIRD’S EYE CHILLI [cili padi] essence water. Basically chopped up a few of those spicy suckers, poured boiling hot water to get the essence out and wala. I even topped the jelly with stars to make it look prettier 😀 And yes, those bugs are real. They taste… crispy.
A special brew of BITTER Chinese herbs and bitter gourd essence topped with freshly chopped bitter gourd. As to how BITTER it was, I took a tiny sip and the taste stayed with me on my tongue for a good 15-20 minutes. King even asked “OK, what DID you put in there? My mouth was BITTER for 30 minutes even AFTER a bottle of water and some cookies!”. Heh heh heh.
Tania bored a hole into the carrots, and we strung the carrots around the boys’ waist, making some other boys eat this wasabi-laced delicacy… withouth their hands. If you’re wondering, yes, it does look like a bunch of guys fellating each other in public.
Min [in sunnies] is carrying a Golden Rooster with 7 eggs that symbolises good health and fertility.
Dangit Daniel, you are SO DAMN SNEAKY WITH A CAMERA.
The Emcee was REALLY corny. “The sweetness of the cake will fill their heart with joy and fill their lives with sweetntess”. Or something equally as corny as that. I looked at Jo and said “I DID NOT WRITE THAT”. Haha!
OOPS forgot to add this in. The lighting is really creepy, but the bride looks so radiant in this photo …
DANIEL YOU ARE TOO SNEAKY WITH THE CAMERA!
And we proceeded to Karaoke and drinking [I didn’t drink that much] and some more nighttime debauchery. Of which photos will not be posted up … because for some strange reason there is a photo of King topless and being molested by the guys. I was too busy playing dice / happily drinking away.
Ah, can’t wait for December 2011 🙂
