Simon and Hester’s Wedding, Hong Kong, October 2011

Oh what a week!

Liz and I have just returned from a week in Hong Kong. We had an amazing time touring around the place. The highlight was the wedding of our friends Simon and Hester this past Sunday. They looked bloody stunning and it was a fantastic wedding ceremony and reception.

As this was the first Chinese wedding I had attended – and as a groomsman no less – I was introduced to a whole new world of activities. You see, the groom and groomsmen need to undertake challenges prior to having the tea ceremony with the brides parents. In our case we danced, bartered for cash payment, ate wasabi, did the limbo and a whole lot more. Thank goodness we managed to impress the bridesmaids and they let Simon greet Hester!

Congrats to the newlyweds!
