13th Oct 2008, Officially Mr & Mrs Chong

Yeah ! Finally we have gone through our wedding registration without any incidents πŸ™‚ Well initially we thought our wedding registration will have to be put on hold as there’s a small fine print in the wedding registration form stating that if one is from other district, he/she should stay at least 7 days in Kuching prior to wedding registration. Well luckily that rules applied only if he/she having the wedding registration done at the government office. Our registration is done at the Teo-Chew association hence that rule does not apply. Lucky us πŸ™‚ Below are some of the photos to share with you guys!
The ever famous Statutory Declaration, well, mine was not as 'juicy' as the one by Bala, just a declaration that I am single and not married anywhere. I am not sure whether in west Malaysia this is a requirement or not, but over here if the other half is from west Malaysia, then a Statutory Declaration is required. Very serious neh.

Not sure whether this is required over West Malaysia or not, but here if the other half is from West Malaysia, a SD is required, very serious de neh πŸ™‚

We sat around the conference style table with the registration officer sitting in the middle. We felt like attending a board meeting more than wedding registration πŸ˜› The officer briefed us on some of the clauses in relation to Malaysia Marriage Law.

Putting my signature onto the wedding certificate. Sort of a contract signing ceremony whereby both party and the witness need to sign the paper.

My ah dear sign the document as well. No turning back from here onwards πŸ˜›

The wedding officer asked why our signature looks alike. Hehe, no choice both of us having the same surname (but different chinese character). Anyway my wife said this officer looks like Mario (the plumber in the Super Mario game) πŸ˜›

The "I DO" segment πŸ™‚ Well not as romantic as what we have seem zillion-th times on the TV but yet a very special moment for both of us.

Our wedding ring, bought from Poh Heng in Singapore. We like the simple design. Unfortunately it is not a 'comfort fit' version but that's alright for us.

Exchanging our wedding ring. Actually the wedding registration does not include a ring exchange ceremony. The officer just said that the wedding registration is complete, we can proceed with what ever ceremony that we want to carry on.

Group photo with Mr Mario, err i mean Mr Goh the wedding registration officer πŸ™‚ He is a nice chap in deed.

All in all the whole process lasted about 30 minutes. Faster that what we would imagine. Anyway, 13th October 2008, a date which we changed our status from ‘single’ to ‘married’, a date which we will never forget (I hope I will not forget even for once else she will definetely scream at me πŸ˜› ). The whole feeling of getting married have yet to sink in, IΒ guess in the coming weeks we will start to realize slowly what being married really feels like πŸ˜‰ But this is only the first part of the whole marriage process, as we still got our Chinese wedding ceremony to go through.

That’s all for this post now, later if I have time I will post another blog about our wedding photo shot session. Yah I went through the whole photo shot session without loosing my temper and survived it πŸ˜› Will share with you guys later.

Cheers from Kuching!

Ooops, I can foresee some stress coming my way :)

Yes, definitely some stress coming my way.

Why ? coz have to start to consider about my marriage arrangement already πŸ™‚ And marriage arrangement for Chinese is quite a ‘challenging’ task.

Initially we planned to have our wedding end of next year, so we will have to start planning some where end of this year. But due to some reasons we have to expedite our marriage, most probably to 1st quarter next year, depends on which ‘auspicious’ day available.

Oh my, really don’t know how to start planning….

This week my dear will come back then have to discuss with her how to proceed.

Last weekend I went to Kuching with my mum, main purpose is to discuss about marriage arrangement. Still not confirmed everything yet but at least we know we have to expedite it. And we went to a bridal shop in Kuching to see sample photo, seems like not bad although the cost is slightly over our budget. But the quality is there so we might opt for that. Yah we planned to take our wedding photo in Kuching and not in my hometown Melaka, mainly due to we want something different, and my colleagues wanted to see wedding photo taken from place other than Melaka πŸ™‚

Anyway, got to wait for the next year’s Chinese Almanac (ι€šδΉ¦) to be available (probably in 1 month time) in order to check which is the auspicious day then we have to plan backward on what are the things to be done.

Wish me luck πŸ™‚
