25.10.08 : Mimi & Ea Wei's Wedding Reception

Weeks ago, I've got a morning rushed as I got to go to work that morning and rushed home to change for Patriana and Ea Wei's wedding reception held in Shangrila Tg. Aru Resort here in Kota Kinabalu. Patriana whom I refer to as Mimi since I was a kid, is actually my 2nd cousin from her dad's side, my mother's 1st cousin.

I didn't know that Mimi is going to get married cause she was away in Kuala Lumpur about few years already & we seldom get to see each other too. Yes, that is not until I stumbled upon Anna-Rina's the Sabahan Wedding Photographer based in KL photo blog. Fast forward after Mimi's registry of marriage, church wedding and their reception in KL, Mimi's dad informed my mother about the wedding reception invitation. Since dad was not around, I was delighted to be there.

As expected we were just in time. We were among the last people to go in since it was a bit late, drizzling and could not get a parking. I'm just glad that they did not go for the garden wedding reception as it was a rainy season.

Here are some random shots that day.

While everyone is busy focusing on the bride & groom,
I have decided to turn a different and snapped this....

" Hey, Anna ! "

Anna-Rina caught in action.
She was arranging everyone to be in the position & ready I think.
Hee ;p
