Ok....I am finally back after a great weekend of fine dining at the big city. So here are some photo shoots discreetly taken with my small portable camera which I manage to smuggle snugly in my evening bag. The pics were not too good because of the dim lightings and my 4 years old 2 gb camera.

The wedding dinner was a grand affair with about 100 tables decorated with fresh white roses and candlelights. Among the hundreds of guest were our DPM's wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, Toh Puan Ena Ling, Group Chief Editor of The Star...Wong Chun Wai and many others. Our DPM came late when everybody was leaving because he had another wedding function elsewhere. The dinner party ended around midnight after much drinking and boogieing by the bride and bridegroom and their parents.

Sweet Jasmine said...

little corner of mine - Hi, love yr new profile pics of the girls.

Now you can see half of me in sparkling dress.I'm too shy to pose whole body in front of hundreds of people. So hope this quick shot will do. The dinner was great but I still prefer chinese food. I indulge myself in some red wine though.

Sweet Jasmine said...

johnny ong - Hi Johnny..its nice of you to drop a word here. The dinner was indeed grand with the whole banquet hall occupied with rows of white roses and presentations and dressing up fit for a King.

I have yet to ask my host about the cost. Will do so later.

Sweet Jasmine, It was an excellent shot of you. Cleverly taken with a hint of mystery. The Mandarin serves good food.

CK Lam said...

Wow...you must have made heads turn as you walk into the ballroom wearing this classy gown.

Sweet Jasmine said...

ck lam - To tell you the truth, there are more sophisticated and sexy dressing up of these city socialites of whom many were of the rich and famous...every minute seeing them going to the rest room to powder themselves up with their long gown sweeping the marble and carpeted floors from the loo to the hall....how can I compare to them with my just a plain jane cocktail dress...*sigh*.
