Went to a wedding on Saturday.

I totally mis read the invitation. I thought it started at 3:30pm but it actually started at 1:00pm at the church. I guess I miss those outlook calendar reminders! Or maybe next time I should just learn how to read.

I do love wedding, everyone’s so happy! And there’s alwys the drunk guy, the rowdy table, etc.  In this wedding, we didn’t see any drunk guys, and we were the rowdy table. It was a super nice wedding with lovely (roast pig! it was SO good!)

And they had a lovely yummy cake.


This is pretty much the only picture that came out of the whole wedding I took. (Ok not exactly the only one, but the most lovely one)

I tried to take picture of the first dance, but it’ll came out too blurry. Maybe I should learn how to use the camera better!

I wish more of my friends are getting married so I can go to more weddings!
