A different Singaporean Chinese wedding dinner [#NaBloPoMo Day 14]

[In the month of November, I’m blogging for 30 days straight-NOT REALLY!!!!-as part of #NaBloPoMo. Check out the archives.]

So I’ve covered Malaysian-Chinese and mainland Chinese weddings on the blog. Can you believe that I don’t have one for Singapore yet? Shame on me.

Luckily, I just attended one on Saturday so it makes a perfect blog topic. But I don’t think this is a typical Singaporean Chinese wedding so don’t be surprised if the one you go to is totally different (or it could be a Singaporean Malay or Singaporean Indian wedding).

My improv team mate Pamy had her wedding banquet on 14 Nov 2015. When improv is involved, expect the unexpected.group-selfie

First date at a wedding

What entertainment would you have at an improv wedding? Awesome improv games!

It was the first time I’ve seen the improv game First Date played at a wedding.

The game involves a couple and a pair of improvisers. The couple recounts their first date. The improvisers act out their first date, throwing in a few errors here and there.

When there are errors, the couple would squeeze a squeaky toy. When the situation is correct, the couple would ring a bell.

Here’s the show!  (Oh, I’ve not asked the people in the clip if I could put this up on the internet. I’ll take it down when they ask me to.)

Kind of makes you think that your own first date should be show-worthy.

Polaroids are awesome!

#pamoswed (such a cute hashtag) had a polaroid stall. Our table basically printed photos after photos after photos.

For the second act of the wedding banquet, the couple danced into the hall to Backstreet Boys’ Larger Than Life. That was pretty cool.

 

I did not take photos of the food. That’s a first!

There you go! That’s how a not-so-typical Singaporean Chinese wedding.
