Leonard & Nicole: Happily Ever After (Set 2)


The greatest love story which spans the South China Sea, from the West to the East of Bolehland, continues, right here, in Selayang, Kuala Lumpur. 

Most likely as a result of our prudish Asian conservative culture, eloping and getting married in Vegas was probably not on the cards. Therefore, opting for a more conventional approach at the Asian institution of marriage, our Hero and Heroine decides to hold 2 Grand Celebrations: One in KL (Heroine's hometown) and another in Miri (Hero's hometown), as an official announcement to family and friends of their nuptials. Of course, most of us are there just to make sure Leo gets royally smashed. But not me of course. I'm there to document and observe the event in pictures. And to not let them forget it in the years to come...

Your friendly neighbourhood protaganist (thats me!) has been invited to join in on the festivities NOT as a guest, but in the most honorable capacity of helper. We always said if any of us get married, we're not going to be invited to dine and relax. We'd be helping out with the proceedings. We did the same for Sharie when she got married. Pity I didn't have a camera in-hand then. Then there would be a shot of me in a baju melayu.

I took 307 photos that night, and more than half of that is usable. Good for me. However, many of those were group-y shots. And while I will happily give the same to my dearest married friend, keeping in line with Dom-o-graphy, here are some of my favourite portraits that night. If you don't think they're good, you can let me know. Or you can bugger off. Whichever is more suitable for you.

Happy Birthday to my lovely aunt, Eleanor Lee!

I don't understand why some people dislike their birthdays. Birthdays are good for you. In fact, statistically, it has been proven that those of us with more birthdays, tend to live longer.

But seriously folks, on the fine evening (which is hardly relevant, save for artistic pomp because we ate inside) of 21st July 2010, the Lee's (inclusive of the relevant offspring), Kee's (inclusive of the relevant offspring) and two friends, got together to celebrate the abovementioned celebrant's birthday. In the interest of self-preservation, I shall not state her age here. Suffice to say, age isn't really a bad thing... if you consider the alternative. Heck, even my mom has stopped lying about her age. Thank goodness for that, because if not, I'm already older than she is.

The fancy chinese-several-coursed dinner took place in Ee Chinese CuisineEastin Hotel. Despite the name which suggests either disgust ("Eeeeee!") or MSC status (e-Chinese anyone?), it was impressive and swanky-looking with ultra efficient waiters/waitresses. Can you believe that the starter was actually three different kinds of fishball, one of which was wrapped in bacon. Gladness and joy! Another dish had something or rather to do with priests climbing over walls. Maybe the Romans were coming. I don't know. The rest of the dishes you can ask my brothers. I was taking photos.

Anyways, thank you Na Ee for the lovely dinner. Or was it, thank you Unker Charles?
Have a great birthday celebration, my dearest Aunty!
