The power of love.
The power of love between this two good friends drawn many people to Cameron Highlands last weekend. It was Tokku & Norico's wedding held in Tokku's hometown, Kampung Raja located in the mountainous tourist hot spot. I was one of the invited guest, bride's maid and also vocal performed a song and a half on the stage that wedding dinner's night.
If it was not because of this two cute bride & bridegroom, I would have no reason to visit the lovely places in Cameron Highlands and had my first ever experience in becoming a bride's maid. Especially in such special circumstances which Norico had her parents, sister and close friends flew all the way from Japan to attend her wedding. If it's not because of her, I would have no chance to use my poorly broken Japanese language to communicate with them and had much fun knowing Norico's and also Tokku's family and friends. The wedding was conducted the Chinese traditional way where bridegroom came pick bride up with decorated car and loud horns, prank on bridegroom before he sees his bride, drink tea session with the elders etc. I felt honored to witness all these.
[This is what bride's maids do. Prepare pranks for bridegroom!]
And if it was not because of the two sweet couple, I would have not met so many nice people in the wedding. I was in Cameron Highlands since last Friday evening with Wai Khong and Eugene. The two lecturers from my graduated college whom was Norico's lecturers in Multimedia courses. It's great knowing them and had some fun during the road trip together. Wai Khong was the wedding's decorator and one of the performers. We did a duet on stage after weeks of singing practice together. Eugene was the official wedding photographer for the event. All are helpers in a car.
Besides this, I've got the chance to see mountains of fresh flowers because of this lovely wedding. That's the most flowers I've ever seen in my whole life. It was truly enjoying moment in Cameron Highlands except for the hours of winding road trip.
After the tiring but excited weekend in Cameron Highlands, it was a wedding party held in a Mexican restaurant in Taipan, Subang on the following Monday night. I had another night of great fun. Much satisfaction performing to a small crowd. So warm and cozy dinner. It's such a wedding spree going on and on. The newly weds are very excited and happy although totally exhausted.
Lastly, I made my wishes through a simple motion clip for their marriage. It was quite a rush work before the wedding weekend. Hope they don't mind it. Congratulations again dear Tokku & Norico!
