The incidental ‘tok panjang’.
Our two families finally meet ‘officially’. Over a meal at my cousin’s Peranakan restaurant – Candlenut, introductions were made, laughs exchanged and very full tummies from some amazing food happened.
I can’t say enough about Malcolm’s restaurant, except that I wished I could hire him to prepare all the meals at our wedding. But then, how could I possibly make him work on my wedding?
While our families have had a few chance meet ups over the years, we thought it would be an awkward meet up with uncomfortable silences. But laughs provided by my brother-in-law (at my expense) helped the evening go by smoothly. Everyone in the immediate family on my side, including Granny, the nieces and nephew attended. Am glad everyone enjoyed time spent over a good meal.
That’s another item crossed on our list. Next up….guest lists, seating plans and venues.
