If you have your very own Twitter hashtag for your wedding, you are automatically in the ‘cool but geeky’ crowd. And if you have no idea what a hashtag is, then you’d better find out, so that you can be cool. But Nic immediately upped the cool factor by chartering a bus to transport his friends and family from Singapore to Malacca for his wedding.

Cheng Leng (also known as Hillary) and Nicholas are friends of mine. Cheng Leng and I have known each other for years, since we were both in school. Then in college, we saw each other almost every other day… had meals together, went to pasar malam together, hung out with the same friends… we had a great time. After we graduated, Cheng Leng worked in KL for a while, but then she moved to Singapore a few years ago. I felt sad to see her go, but thank God for social media networks like Facebook. We kept in touch through the years.

It was great that I could witness the wedding ceremony of Nicholas and Cheng Leng. I wasn’t meant to be there for the wedding, but due to some turn of events, I could be there as a guest! I managed to sneak a few shots during the wedding (all the time a little worried if I was being an ‘Uncle Bob’ to the official photographer).

Presenting, the gorgeous bride…

The one thing that immediately stands out about Cheng Leng – Her smile. She is such a warm and sincere person. I miss her hugs a lot. :)

So I had to give her a BIG hug.

This is Elfie, she went to school with me too (I have to admit, we had HOURS of fun playing with our Barbie dolls when we were young). The 3 of us were really close in college.

I love it that the flower girls, bridesmaids and matron of honour were dressed in the Nyonya kebaya outfit!

Nicholas sang beautifully during the wedding ceremony. He has such a good voice! The thing I admire most about Nicholas is his heart for the Lord. Cheng Leng complements him perfectly in this area.

The kiss!!

The joy is infectious! :) Thanks Cheng Leng and Nicholas for your friendship! I am so glad I could be there to witness this historical moment! As you journey life together, may you continue to discover the amazing path God has planned for your life. And thanks for the door gift below… I think it’s a great idea!
