Gerra's Super Unconventional Wedding Part 2

A month ago, I blogged about Part 1 of Gerra's super unconventional wedding which featured the pre-wedding detail shots. (Gosh... can I buy a truckload of Time please?) Part 2 would feature what happened during the sit-down western style dinner at Skyve. It was anything but a sit-down dinner.




Presenting the bride and groom.




Finally, I managed to capture a shot of just Clement and Gerra.




Let's take a swing while waiting for the rest to arrive.




Fashionably late as a couple is dear Xtina and Lester and they have a new status as Mummy and Daddy-to-be. Congrats! I'm truly happy for the both of them!




All dressed up.




DISCO-ed




Nerdy Kh acting cool and nonchalant after acting stupid in the previous photo.




All my bob hair Bimbo Sisters. I love Tiff's black and white wig which reminds me of Cruella De Vil, the villain from 101 Dalmatians.




Look who's the odd one out? After wearing a wig for one Halloween, I realise that I absolutely hate the feeling of having so much heat accumulated right above the scalp not being able to escape. Actually I lost my wig but that isn't a bob wig too.




All my beloved bimbo sisters.




Lester Presley being flanked on the right and left by twin nerds Jimson and Kh.




Afro meets electric blue. Hmm... Xtina looked like she was cupping a really gigantic red wine glass. Perspective.




Dinner was served buffet style and the food was really good. The fish was so delicious that I could just sit there and eat fish the whole day. Most of us visited the buffet table again and again.




The wedding favour packaging reminds me of Hello Kitty.




There was an illusionist who went round the tables to perform his sleight of hand tricks. I really like close-up street magic tricks a lot and this illusionist is really good! All of us got to experience his little magic with coins, rubber bands and even my iPhone! For our table, he did some coin tricks which I was personally involved and was befuddled when extra coins could appear in my clenched fist. Equally befuddling was a rubber band trick. Though we could roughly explain the logic of the trick, we just could not believe our eyes even after watching and pausing the video a few times.




Tiff and Paul were most probably analyzing the rubber band video here.





The rubber band trick video is on Tiff's phone. What I have on my camera is the iPhone in balloon trick. Yup, that's my iPhone there and he simply smashed the balloon into my iPhone and presto... my iPhone went into the balloon.




Here's the video. While I was uploading this video, I started watching some videos on YouTube and finally know how this trick is done. Still, I find his sleight of hand really deft.




Zhou Chong Qing 周崇庆 is a personal friend of the couple and we just had to take a photo with him before he made a move.
(For my non-local blog readers, Zhou Ching Qing is a local radio deejay, actor and host. He is a humorous and down-to-earth person and is rather popular and well-loved among the parents generation.)




While Gerra was busy entertaining her other groups of friends, we accosted Clement for a group shot. We had to make use of the photobooth and the props right?




Tiff and Paul with Gerra and Clement.




Lester Presley serenading Xtina with his baritone voice.




Me and Kh shooting them with guns and arrows. As I said, we had to make use of the photobooth and the props right?




When we saw the setting of the photobooth, we thought that the backdrop was gaudy. However, it looked more professional in the actual photo.




The Primary 6B gang. I've known them for as long as 21 to 25 years. That's how old we are but hey, we don't look our age at all! (⌒_⌒;)




Um... We were trying to do the sign "6" and "B" but apparently, Jimson did a mirror image and ended with "d".




Good old kh knows I love this kinda shot in shot photos.




Gerra joined in for a more complete 6B shot. I love how candid this photo is. That's all of us waving bye bye spontaneously to her friends whom we didn't even know. We were just waving them away for fun so that we could have a shot with her. ( ^_^)/




Who's the bride?




Why did all the gals pout and purse our lips here? Telepathy of the bimbos perhaps.




And when the party was over, there was clearing up to be done. Like removing the disco ball.




Removing the colourful pinwheels from the reception table.




And frantically trying to distribute all the remaining wedding favours.




Ending off this post with an anigif of the Pri 6B gang that evening.

  1. Happy Sunday to you Jo! Yep, is still Sat over here but few minutes and will straight go to bed!:) Btw, I remember very well the first part of the wedding and Im glad to see the second one. The bride and the groom are really beautiful, as Ive already told you, I think is one of the most original and fun wedding celebration I ever saw. Your friends with the wigs are so adorable, you know, I couldnt endure the heat of it as well but the look you chose is fab as well. The illusionist is so good! Hae watched the video and I havent got the trick of the balloon lol, I imagine you must have been also worried for the iphone!:) The pic with the deejay is cool, have no idea who he is but seems a nice person. Enjoy the Sun Jo, kisses! xo

    1. Hello lovely Lilli, It's Sunday again and it seems like we are always talking to each other on Sundays. I'm really in awe of my friends who managed to put up with the heat. I even had a friend who came with an afro wig and by the end of the dinner, some of them had removed their wigs. I don't think I would be able to bear a minute in an afro wig. I was pretty thrilled that the illusionist used my phone coz I felt personally involved in the "magic" that way but I was really befuddled at that moment..

      Thank you for your sweet words as usual. I always love getting feedback from you. Hope you have a splendid Sunday!

  2. Gerra was a beautiful bride--no way she could have avoided that. The only thing missing from the wedding party was a platinum wig. Either you or one of the fellas will have to wear one when the couple renews their vows in 20 years. :)

    1. That's a very good idea! Maybe I would suggest that to my bimbo sisters. I think no matter how old we are, you can't take the fun, vivacity and bimboticity outta us.

  3. Oho, some magic is afoot. Always cool, well nerdy cool, to see magic :) It fascinates me but I have not the dexterity for such things. I will just sit and be amazed :) Speaking of magic, your wig looks the most real of them all. Oh...wait...not a wig. Is that twice I have accused you of wig usage? :) You all look amazing and it looks like a great time. To answer your question from my blog regarding the roller coaster photo, I was seated next to a young woman that came along with our little group to the park. She was very charming company. College-age people have such a nice energy about them :) Hope your day is bright! xoxo

    1. With loads of unlocking the magician's code programmes being aired, I'm still fascinated by magic just like you. It isn't just about knowing how the trick works, it's about how the trick is performed with such skill. I know for sure that even if I know the logic behind some tricks, I will not be able to churn out the same feat.

      Yes, you always accuse me of wearing a wig. But I will take that as a compliment. Hahaha...

      It's nice to see more of such fun photos on your blog!

  6. As I said before you blogged about this, I love the idea of an unconventional wedding and this one looks like it was so much fun. Definitely one that would be memorable for both the happy couple and the guests as well.

    To get back to you about the SKII FTE, I didn't find that the condition of my skin really degraded too much after I stopped using it. obviously it wasn't as good as when I was but maybe because I was using a pretty good serum and another essence at the time that it helped it from getting bad. I'm tempted to get it again but I'm got so many things to use now, I think I'll just wait.

    Btw I'm not a K-pop fan either as that's a term thats really just used for music idols which I have no fondness for. I happen to watch some Korean shows and movies so I have a some actors/actresses that I like. Yes indeed there is something about Paris and b+w photos :)

    Hope your week is off to a great start Jo!

    1. Hi Rowena, Thank you for your in-depth reply on the FTE. I'm still half the mind to get it but I think the next time I travel, I would probably buy the big bottle from the airport.
