Le Parents' 30th wedding anniversary.

Finally got around to blogging about my parents' wedding anniversary party! 30th anniversary yo. Quite scary to imagine being married to the same person for THIRTY YEARS! Especially when they are as different as my mom and dad, haha. Since it is so amazing that they didn't kill each other they remain in love for all these years, my parents decided to throw a small dinner party for the occasion!

Actually, there was a small drama with the party. Initially, my parents gave us full rein to do whatever we want for the dinner, including the venue, deco, food etc. So we decided on a "English Garden Party" theme, and was set on Ben's in BSC, as it has a very nice glass room that would look gorgeous for the party. However, a week before the party, we went to Ben's for dinner to choose the menu for the party, and my parents suddenly did a 180 degree turn and said NO! They want Chinese food instead wtf. It didn't help that Ben's service was extremely inefficient, and they served us a piece of cake that has gone bad. -__-

I was quite upset actually, 'cause how to throw an English garden party in a Chinese restaurant wtf. Plus, we have already prepared some deco stuff, so it's really quite a bummer to switch venue/ theme at the 11th hour!! Teeny, being the cold person she is, was like, "whatever la, their loss" WTF. My brother couldn't care less about deco, and Jing wasn't much help since she would only be back from Brisbane on the day of the party. I felt quite dejected and alone at that time, and was honestly considering to just give up doing any planning for the dinner.

In the end though, I decided that as long as my parents are happy, it doesn't really matter where the party is! WE will maketh the party, hehe. So I went along with my parents' plan to have it in a Chinese restaurant, and along with my siblings, did some simple deco. :)

Ok, enough with the back story wtf. Pictures time! I got a friend of mine who is a professional photographer to take some photos during the party, so they are really pretty. :D But the dimensions are smaller than usual, 'cause I stole them from Teeny's FB wtf.

Some behind-the-scene photos while we were setting up... I think these were my favorite photos from the day!

The restaurant that we dined in was Gu Yue Tien (in Chulan Square, opposite Pavilion KL), which is arguably the best Chinese restaurant in KL. This was before we put up the decorations!

We almost wanted to cancel out cake order when the dinner venue was changed to a Chinese restaurant! But luckily we didn't, 'cause it was really the highlight of our feature table. :)

Super love this photo of my parents. :')

My mom continued with the "floral garden" theme, and ordered all the men to wear bow ties. My dad was not spared, haha.

And while all of us were busy running around getting the place ready...

.... my grandparents were camwhoring, HAHA. Grandpa was wearing a bowtie and suspenders, so handsome! And my grandma was using my mom's Valentino clutch which matched her cheongsam top perfectly.

I think my grandpa was really pleased with how he looked that night. When he found out that my friend is a professional photographer, he ordered him, "YOUNG MAN! Come come, take a photo of me. I need a new passport photo" HAHAHAAHHA.

Our feature table. The "Just Married-- 30 years ago" was my idea, haha. Also put up some photos of my parents at their wedding!! I think some were missing from this photo, 'cause some of the guests kept on stealing the photos to study closely wtf.

Brother Hoe also looked really dashing! First time saw him in a faux tux. Faux, 'cause he was actually wearing skinny jeans with his bow tie and tux jacket wtf.

My mom changed into 3 outfits for the night WTF. Now you know where my fashion hoarding genes come from, haha. However, this is an extra meaningful outfit as she is wearing a Chinese 'kua' that my grandma wore for HER wedding 59 years ago!!

I don't have a proper outfit photo from the night, so this crappy phone image will do.

This is with our "godmother", aka my mom's best friend, and her children. She and her family almost follow us on our family trips!

Pretty pink roses for my mom. It was 2 days before my mom's birthday, so it was another cause for celebration.
