Wedding Door Games ♥ Part 2

Jeng! Jeng! Jeng! Jeng!

The groom and his hengdais arrived my place doing the traditional honking to "chip san leong" 

HengDais theme were policemen. How effing cool was that? 

waiting patiently for my cousin to open the car door for him. 
Okay, i've search up the internet of why mustn't the groom open the car door himself, out of curiosity.
"The groom must not open the car door when he arrives to fetch his bride. He has to wait patiently for the bride's younger brother to open the bridal car door for him. The younger brother will open the door and pass him two oranges. The two oranges will be left in the bridal car for good fortune.The groom will give this younger brother a red packet for opening the car door. If the bride has no younger brother, a younger male relative or a younger male friend can play the role."

so here comes my adorable cousin brother Harry 

Opening the groom's car door 

Gave the groom two oranges for good fortune 

Gave Harry red pocket in return 

*claps* *claps* 

Next, is facing the bridesmaids' challenge 

My sisters' troop 

Of course as a tradition, the groom and the groomsmen need to go through the wedding door games challenges. They had to complete all the challenges to the jimuis satisfaction before letting him fetch the bride.  This was done to make the ceremony more fun, and to make the groom overcome some obstacles before getting to the bride.

The first challenge - hanging this gigantic Love board card on the neck and go around my neighborhood asking 5 random people to write wedding wishes for us 

This is to test the groom's sincerity and love for me 

Of course the hengdais need to be there to assist him 

The auntie next door 

The boys went around asking maids at the park. Some were scared off cause they thought they were real policemen.

see what i mean! if i'm an immigrant i'll be scared too.

hubby running around getting wishes for me. so touched 

every time he got one wish done, the 'policemen' hengdais will salute! 

& he's done with the wishes task. Look at that face! 

The second challenge - Pop the balloon with "doggy style" (okay kids shouldn't be reading this. & if you are, don't search up google for the meaning. no good)

look at those puppy faces:'(

& some seem like they were ready though.

so here goes the doggy style balloon popping! 

It seems like they had a hard time bursting the balloons.

while the sisters' troop had a good time laughing 

Done with doggy style game. Now to the 3rd challenge! 

The groom will tie the balloon at the hips line, and chosen hengdais need to jump on him to burst it!

so here goes! first jumper - ERIC !

second jumper - KEN ! Poor baby, look at his face.

the hengdais laughing their arsses off!

the jimuis were even happier! it was like a sadistic entertainment to them 

while my baby suffered from the downright painful jumps :( oh well, you know what they say. No pain no gain 

Challenge No.4 -  2 selected hengdais had to smack the packet drink with the instructed body parts.

this one was....

Foot & Armpit omg!

Armpit & Face.

Palm & Foot.
this challenge seem pretty easy to pass.

So let's proceed to Fifth Challenge,

yes, in this challenge the boys were require to wear disposable underwear with my name alphabet (I ♥ JACKLYN) on it & do some hardcore yoga position.

No big deal lah!

so here goes,

first yoga position,

2nd position, (the flamingo)

3rd position, (froggy style)

all seem easy peasy to them.

& done with the 5th challenge!

now to the 6th challenge, also the last task.

here comes the worst nightmare for all groomsmen's / hengdais!

 it was the  /  /  /  (sweet / sour / bitter / spicy) challenge! 

first was to drink this super SOUR drink from baby bottles.

way to go Ken !

2nd one was SPICY! (mixed with chili padi & oats)

hahah still can't get over their expression!



last was BITTER juice! (made out of bitter cord)

nice kan Ronald? haha


hubby: "way to go brave soldiers!"

is all about the fun however the jimuis need to keep an eye on the time and to not go crazily over board with the games so that it doesn't pass the auspicious time (set by fortune-teller) for the groom to fetch the bride.

of course the groom can't escape the angpao (red pockets) for the jimui part 

the angpao amount needs to be up to the jimuis satisfaction too before letting the groom and his entourage enter the house to fetch the bride 

counting ... counting ... 

the groom doing the bargain 

count again ... 

many faces of my hubby bargaining 

and finally the groom successfully entered the house after all the hassle 

followed by the hengdais 

all marching towards my room 

Just to purposely make them disappointed,
i wasn't in my room waiting. Instead, i was in my parent's room.

look at their curious (where-is-the-bride?) & disappointed faces. haha

up up they go again... 

finally reached the destination 

naughty hengdai trying to open the door, of course the jimui won't let it be so easy.
it wasn't the end of the challenges yet!

the very last task before fetching the bride - the groom needs to sing a love song for the bride

hubby singing, touched 

the groom successfully passed all challenges & it's time to open door and fetch the bride 

and it's a wrap for part 2 
here's a short video of the whole process and preview for the next post :
