#mingandpatty

Over the weekend we were at Ming and Patty’s wedding in Bangkok.

We already planned not to bring kids cos it was just a weekend and I thought it might be too difficult and stressful to lug them there with us over just three days.  But then I found out it was no kids allowed so yay guilt alleviated hahahaha.

Nice to be on our own for a while!  I was looking forward to uninterrupted sleep but er that didn’t happen wtf.  Fatty and I were very relaxed though.  Until we were at the airport to come back and we were debating whether to extend the trip WTF.

But clinginess to the babies won wtf.

Anyway it was a beautiful wedding!  One of the most well planned weddings I’ve attended.  No surprise considering it’s Ming’s wtf.

Let the photos do the talking!

In the airport waiting to board.

The suitcases are our wedding present to Ming and Patty!  Suitcases symbolize their long distance relationship and always having to travel to see each other.  It also represents the journey they’re embarking on together as a married couple. 😀  Nice lehhhh so symbolic hahaha.

We bought Rimowa suitcases and commissioned a local graffiti artist Cloakwork to jazz them up.

Arrived at the hotel, The Siam which was breathtakingly beautiful!  Ming booked the entire hotel for the wedding so in the corridor downstairs were all their wedding photos taken in Iceland all laid out.

The corridor inside our suite.  Super nice and won’t mind staying there again… but also super expensive wtf thanks Ming lolol.IMG-20150616-WA0015

 

Sitting area…IMG-20150616-WA0016

Sinks. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again – our house next time will have double sinks!

Bath area.  Not bathroom cos it’s partitioned off with drapes only.

What I loved about the #mingandpatty wedding was that it was so intimate and personalized!  It was small and they managed to personalize so much of it to the guests.  Like this welcome gift basket.  A personal letter addressed to us, a Bangkok guidebook they designed themselves based on their own experience, traditional fans for the heat, mosquito repellant etc.  So lovely!

Celebrated Darren’s birthday…

Then after dinner Wendy and I made a run for Talad Rod Fai but we underestimated how far it was wtf.  Our hotel is by the Chao Phraya so we traveled like 45 minutes to get there and no time to shop much FOL D:

Thai engagement ceremony starts with a ‘gatecrashing’ session too!  The groom and his entourage bear gifts and approach the bride’s family and go through some hurdles to get to the bride.

The hampers they carried were very elaborate and pretty!  One fella had to carry a hamper of sand though FHL must be damn heavy hahahaah.  Not sure what the sand represented – land ah?

Then a very nice part of the ceremony – guests poured water over the couple’s hands as a blessing. 🙂 Sooo quaint and it feels like such a lovely gesture.

After that it was over and we went for lunch.

Dress from Miss Selfridge!  Bought at the last minute cos my old dresses are still too tight for me FML.

Very nice but I don’t think I’ll wear it again so…. does anybody want to buy a preloved dress HAHAHA.  It’s still a New Arrival and only worn once!  Email me at fourfeetnine [at] gmail.com!

With Wendy.  So glad she was there and we could go out together!   We’re also the only two in short dresses wtf dammit must level up already.

Some more I dunno was I packing blind or what but I forgot half my stuff!  Didn’t bring lash glue, concealer (OMGWTF), hair curler or any hair accessories at all!  Thought I’d have to go for dinner with bird’s nest hair but thank god for Wendy who had hair pins I could use to simply pin up my hair. Turned out ok from the front just don’t see the back hahahaha.
