Tiring Weddings

Weddings are such terribly terribly tiring events!  Today was my first experience at being a receptionist – for my cousin, Cpt Soh’s wedding.  It was a hectic affair… and i was quite annoyed with one of his colleagues who kept disrupting our system of ticking off the guests who have arrived on a list of names sorted alphabetically.  He kept identifying his colleagues and ticking them off on a list that showed how the tables were sorted, and then throwing the angbaos to us (me and another cousin who were the receptionists for the groom’s side) and barking out their first names.  Like WTH man.  Our list of names were sorted by surnames.  Like how the hell am i supposed to know that “Ah Kow” has the surname “Tan”??  And whenever we sought clarification from him, he would say, “Ah Kow Ah Kow!  Pay attention.  I said the name already”.

Wah lau.  If it wasn’t my cousin’s wedding, i would have so given it to him.  Like slap his face and kick his balls man.  I really had to bite my tongue and tell myself that it’s ok.  He’s probably from the army and that’s how army guys talk.  BUT SO WHAT RIGHT?  Wouldn’t u be pissed off if u had someone barking at u non-stop??  Like hello!  I don’t owe u a living lor.  Idiot.

Got identified again at the recept table.  Saw a rather familiar face and the guy stared at me… but i just kept quiet ‘cos i had no idea who he was… i mean, his face was only vaguely familiar.  He said my name first and i was like, “Er, are u from TJ too?”.  Then he said, “No?!  Hall 11?” 

Didn’t help ‘cos i still couldn’t remember who he was and so i asked for his name.  Ah… i remembered the name though i didn’t remember his face.  He was 1 year my junior in the hall… and i believe he took over my place in some committee after i left.  Heh.  Anyway, i refuse to blame myself for not recognising him ‘cos the HJ from Hall 11 i remember was thin.  Very thin.  The guy who appeared in front of me today?  Not thin.  Sigh.  What’s with all this weight gain man.  Sheesh.

 Anyway, finally got to wear my ao dai.  Heehee.  Very happy to put it to good use.  Got lots of compliments on it too. 

Okie… nap time… dozed off a few times while driving home from the hotel.  Soooo exhausted.  🙁
