(It’s funnier if you watch it without the streaming pauses. And turn on your speakers.)
This was last weekend. We celebrated the wedding of Kerrendor and Minou (actually Justin and Jennifer but I like to use their EQ2 names).
We, the sisters, had to be at the bride’s place at 5:30am to prepare for the arrival of the groom and his brothers.
The preparation was really fun because we were making breakfast for the boys.
Wang Wang does a smell test.
And we’re all set!
We also prepare a surprise for the brothers.
Hmm… a hat?
The brothers arrive and are fed their breakfast.
Hahaha! What a sabo we created!
(“Sabo” is short for “sabotage” and is used as a slang to denote an action which could range from a friendly prank to downright betrayal.)
Kerrendor (the groom) was able to escape eating our breakfast because his family custom does not permit the groom to eat yucky stuff on his wedding day due to it being inauspicious.
So we made him answer ten questions about the bride. Difficult questions like what’s her favourite lipstick and what she wore on their first trip overseas together.
For each question he fails to answer correctly, one of the brothers would have to eat one item of our lovingly prepared breakfast.
The idea was to make him sabo his brothers so they would all want to kill him!
He failed all the questions!!
After breakfast was the entrance fee haggling. The groom has to part with an obscene amount of cash before the sisters will open the door to admit the brothers.
Well, what happens after this is all in the video so I’m not going to write about it.
But the bride and groom finally met.
And we took some group photos. Here are all the brothers and sisters!
OMG this is very tiring.
I’ll have to continue this tomorrow because I already spent half the afternoon editing the video and pictures.
Watch out for A Chinese Wedding — Hotel Havoc tomorrow!

Miccheng: Not really lah. Some of the brothers actually enjoyed their food. Hahaha.
The lion dance is hilarious! hahaha
But i think the funniest was my “love” song…the national anthem….
Minou: Yah, too bad he chickened out and never sang it. And I was all ready to film it!! lol.
QY, I juz had a feeling that you will put “productive and fruitful union” in your video! Lol!
Very nice video!!!
Frankly, who cares about a wedding when the leadership of the Comments Grand Prix just changed hands. I have to admit that I was all ready to call the race for modchip, but Smallapple seems to have found some last reserves of True Grit and [insert second cliched metaphor of your choice here] and really made a comeback. The pit-stops are over, and it’s just 8 laps to the finish, this is nail biting stuff!
i love your dress!
aiyo!! so sweet the video! :)
the last part sweet lah. all the other parts were hilarious. hehe. great job.
i also can’t wait for my friends to get married.. haha that would be fun~
Omg what is that reddish color jam-y thing @.@
If I ever get the chance to do this I would prepare “scary” food too, heh! :X
It’s scary being married in Singapore. ;)
Then get married in New York, Tokyo, San Diego or Miami.
Ahh.. the good old days of friends getting married one after another.
Baby showers are next!
Sheylara: As for you Missy, there is this thing call karma. Wait till you get to your own wedding….. sabo is like a snowball rolling down the slopes. The longer it rolls, the bigger it is going to get.
You have been warned.
Had you said it was for a Chinese wedding I would have gotten it. It’s not dimsum at all. It’s “tricksum” HA
Someone, quickly hold a wedding soon!
I missed out on the sabo-ing and I want to join in the fun!!
In the words of the Goonfather (to Justin) : your wife ar, I think she will be the most evil and not Wang Wang lor!
Wang Wang: Haha, you know me too well! ;)
Jesta: Wow, is the month almost coming to an end already? Gosh I’m stressed! Go, go, commenters and commentators! lol.
nadnut: Thanks! :)
Daphne Maia: Hehe. J&J are a sweet couple! So, you already planning how to sabo your friends? :P
Pingping: That’s strawberry jam with raw chopped onions. Evil, huh? :P
modchip: Haha, only for the groom. :P
JayWalk: But the evil things only happen to the men. Brides are safe from harm usually. :P As for worrying for the Goonfather, his karma is already beyond redemption. Nothing I can do can save him. lol.
Mike M: Hahaha tricksum! That’s a good one!
Minou: Haha. I wonder what you’re going to come up with.
It’s like going through Fear Factor… :((

modchip: Haha. I think Fear Factor is 100x worse. This is really nothing, I think.
Jason Ho: Very easy lah. Just tell the sisters your family says the groom cannot suffer too much nonsense or else it’s inauspicious. lol.
