Different customs




Steve and I just celebrated the anniversary of officially registered wedding. When we recalled back to the time we registered without any ceremony, we thought it was very funny!

We are different nationalities and races. For Chinese customs, the groom's family needs to plan the wedding, so I expected and hoped my groom would plan the wedding. But I knew my groom is a westerner, so I couldn’t ask him to plan it. Thus, I planned our Buddhist & Chinese culture ceremony wedding in Penang.

When I was here, I thought the wedding ceremony was also planned by the groom. Thus, I never had any comments about having a ceremony. After living here a while, I learned that the wedding is planned by the bride’s family; the groom just needs to know when he should show up!
