On 17th November 2007, Neoh Kah Mun's finally wedded to Ken Yap, family history was made! Evening at Sun Lee How Fook was where it's at!

The reception, Uncle Yee printed the banner! Couldn't be an easier job for him, having his own print shop and all. As there is another wedding dinner being held downstairs, we had to ask and usher guests upstairs, lest they make it to the wrong reception :)

Kah Mun & Ken making their way to the main table. The reception was very smooth as most of the guests arrived on time and we could start the course at 2000, quite good indeed :)

In-laws, the extended family just got larger, how cool is that? More people to chat and drink with during dinners and gatherings :)

Food and service at SLHF is good, way better than what I got at Overseas, Friday night when attending another wedding dinner. The seating's a little cramped and it's hard to get around, but everybody enjoyed the food and no complaints about bland or not-quite-fresh food was heard throughout the night :) I was the photographer for the night so I had to do marvellous acrobatic stunts slipping between chairs a lot, quite good exercise for me! I think my belly might have flattened by 1mm :p

Kah Mun & Ken pouring the champagne, I got hit by a stray cork when Ken unbottled his second bottle of sparks, but at least I got good pics, whahaha, so pro, me!!!! :p

Mom & Uncle Yee on their second song rendition of the night! Most of Uncle Yee's friends are avid karaoke singers, and so are the other guests too, so there wasn't even one horrible karaoke performance during the whole night, everyone's a good singer!!

Yea, it's camwhoring time after the guests have left, for those of you who hadn't realised it :) There's just so much love in this family; it's not always you can see the younger ones and elders mix so well, like they're all friends, yet it's all here, all the time, say BAH to generation gaps!!

One of the last pics I took for the night before giving my camera some rest. It's been a long, fulfilling and happy night! Everything went smoothly and everybody went home with smiles on their face. Beautiful night.

The bride's my cousin sis! Yea, I think she looks exceptionally beautiful that day too, hehe, and my uncle's definitely quite high :p

Yesterday was the first time I had dinner at home in nearly 2 weeks hehe, the more than week long dinner and party spree left me with sore throat, flu, cough, and a really really big belly, lucky it's all starting to go away now, especially the belly :)
