The tea ceremony and chip san leong ceremony was held a week after my ROM.
We decided to have the ROM on a separate day
because we didn't want to stress ourselves out by having a jam packed schedule.
Looking back, I should have enjoyed every moment of it
but the whole day just ended in the blink of an eye.
Whenever I look through my wedding pics,
I cringe at most of the pics
because of my fake looking smile.
Should have practiced smiling before the wedding but it's too late for that now.
I couldn't smile naturally after having to smile in so many pictures.
On your wedding day, you will get a taste of what it's like to be a 'celebrity'
with everybody wanting to take a picture with you.
The only emotion that I can vividly remember on this very day was one of sadness and annoyance (thanks to a certain somebody who didn't get the memo). I can't stop bitching about him to Mike whenever his name crops up. Scarred for life yo. Hahaha.

After Mike picked me up to go to his place, once the tea ceremony all over and done with,
I went back home to collect my luggage bag to bring to the hotel.
The atmosphere was a vast difference from a few hours before that with all the games and laughter and the boisterous crowd.
It was quiet and I felt so sad (you have no idea how sad I was) to see my parents and family just being at home and how life goes on and the thought of me, not being there anymore. Emo Nemo I was.
