One of the main reasons I was in Sibu was to attend a friend daughter’s wedding. It was held on a very auspicious date of 9th of Sept 2009 – for many Chinese 9-9-09 means long-lasting and a wedding on this particular day would bring “happily ever after”.

At this wedding, it was beautiful with traditional touches. Lion dances to welcome all the guests…

The bride was carried on a red sedan chair to be greeted by the groom in the dining hall.

Chinese weddings are usually about entertainment and food. 8-9 courses of the most palatable food will be served. Here were some of the dishes that were served that night.
