I do

Love doesn’t make the world go around; Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.

The long awaited wedding of Gabriel (my cousin) and Cindy finally came. I arrived to Lyn's house a bit late due to university related issues and the point of going to Lyn's house was to greet the bride and groom, take photos and eat before going to the church. I wasn't sitting in a particularly good spot, since a lectern was blocking my view and I had no where else to sit since everywhere that I could possibly sit were already full, so this is the best photo I have of the newlyweds (they look so cute together)!

Afterwards, everyone headed across the road to take group photos with the two except it ended up being take photos with whoever whenever, until it was your turn to take the professional photos. 

Lil Lu - how cute are we? (by we I mean me, jks, how cute is Lulu)?

The reception was held later at night at the Hilton Hotel! When I arrived at the lobby, I headed straight towards the food Lyn recommended LOL. The canap├ęs tasted incredibly delicious, we pretty much followed the waitresses around. 

The wedding had a theme of all the destinations in Europe Gabriel and Cindy have visited. Even their gifts to the guests where mini suitcase type things which you'll see later in a photo. Each tabe was even named after a city in Europe. I was on Bern, Switezerland.

Lyn and I 

Outside in the lobby, they had this table with all the letters which included a different photo of them at a different place where guests could write them a note to place on a board shown below. The board was completely covered by the end of the night. 

When I entered the ballroom, I was in complete awe as I saw the tables and decorations, it was evident that a incredible amount of effort was put into every little detail.

I had Lyn, Jenny, Jenny's bofy, Daniel and these other randoms who would occasionally talk to us about weird, weird things on my table. I sat in between Lyn and Daniel.

The mini suitcase box as gifts to the guests. All the tables looks absolutely perfect *u*

The night contained of speeches, amazing food, laughing, crying, dancing, taking photos and now I want to have a wedding HAAHAAHAHAH The wedding cake was so adorable. Gabriel prosed to Cindy on this mountain (forgot which mountain but I think it was in Switzerland?) up in the clouds and this cake was a little replica and they even had dry ice to give the cloudy effect when they were cutting the cake. It was cuteness overland, omg. I can't even explain how cute the entire wedding was.

Ohp, and here's a shameless bathroom selfie wweew

OH AND THE MOST EXCITING PART WAS WHEN I "CAUGHT" THE BRIDE'S BOUQUET. Basically, they had 25 ribbons attached to the bouquet except only one of them was actually attached and you had to pick a random string. WELL MY RIBBON WAS THE ONE RIBBON THAT WAS ATTACHED :D

I didn't even think how the night could have gotten any better.

Today also made Lyn and I realise how lonely we are :(

Be very, very careful what you put into that head, because you’ll never, ever get it out. ― Thomas Cardinal Wolsey
I can't believe it's already May, so far this year has gone by so quickly! Before you know it, I'll be on holidays again, that is if I make it out of my exams alive. 

So I'll probably be posting on that blog rather than this one form now on...

Well after a few weeks of not seeing the lovely and adorable Cathy, we caught up and I showed her around Southbank. Luckily, Buddha Fest was on this weekend which gave us something a bit more to see and do with all the decorations and events happening. 

I just so happen to have walked by Southbank the day before with Zoe after our trip to Passiontree which had its grand opening on Monday. If you haven't been there yet, you should definitely go visit, it's a sweet cafe located near Elizabeth Arcade in the city (opposite Noggi). Their honey bread is amazing. If happiness was in a form of food, it would probably be Passiontree's honey bread.

Before we went to check out the festivities that night, I took Cathy to one of my favourite restaurants in Southbank - Ahmet's Turkish Restaurant. We ordered so much food, I don't even understand how we got through most of it. 

I ordered this Turkish Delight Martini which looked quite nice but I swear all I could taste was alcohol and if I tried really hard, I could probably taste a tinge of turkish delight. But the martini was quite strong. 

Until next time (most likely on the other blog)
