Everything in this society is about packaging

We can lose anything but "face"

The less perfect it is on the inside

the more extensive the packaging needs to be

So, whenever there is an opportunity to flaunt

everyone is bound to put on their best show

You must have attended one of these affairs

where everyone is dressed to the nines,

like they are superstars

This is the event we call - The Wedding

The rules of this include, first, sending a "Red Bomb"

It doesn't matter how close you are, the trick is to "bomb" all

Once you've been "bombed", you'll have to play by ear

This place is even older than we are

Okay, a smaller red packet then

If the wedding reception is held at a shabbier venue

you pay a cheaper "entry fee"

and vice versa, a higher "entry fee" for a swankier venue

How much are you giving? A hundred and twenty.

Oh dear, mine's only a hundred. Is that enough?

Welcome, welcome

with your name written on the red packet

It can be embararasing if the gift is too little

Yet there are some who are thick-skinned enough

to bring the entire clan, for the "price" of two

Daddy's red packet is only for two, so keep a distance later

Don't let the others see you here

Hey, most of them couldn't make it

This is from Yun Xiang and this is from Siew Yan

Those who are present pay for the full price

and those who are unable to attend, pay only half the price

Why is the groom so ugly? Are we at the right place?

Yes we are, the names are correct. Let's go

That's right

This "ugly" person they are referring to,

and of course, most will disagree

is me

I am the leading man tonight

and she, is my leading lady

Today is my big day, and I've invested a lot to look good

Introducing...the supporting cast for tonight

My father-in-law, my mother-in-law

They seem most worthy of stealing our limelight

Don't you even doubt, every piece here is genuine

Isn't this the best occasion to flaunt

This is my dad

Sigh. He is way out of their league

The only thing he can flaunt is that old watch

A ladies' watch

I don't even know half the people here tonight

Actually, what has my wedding got to do with

them?

I'm sure they share my sentiments

What are we doing at this fella's wedding?

Actually, this is what my dream wedding looks like

The two of us strolling by the beach,

exchanging our vows

Sealing it with a kiss

Isn't it more romantic? And so economical?

Who would have known it'd spiral into

such an affair?

This is like a movie, a big-budget production

Well, I'm only an extra

who has to take instructions from the directors

Here, this is Director No. 1 - the wife's youngest aunt

Come come, you handsome one!

Send all these over to that table

But she...

Just ignore here. Send these to that table

at the far end

This is director no.2 - my youngest aunt

A scene like this is only complete with the groom's side

and the bride's side of the family sparring

It's the survival of the fittest

Finally, enter the bride and groom

I consider myself lucky, having spent only months

on wedding preparations

Some have spent years in preparation for this one night

Oh my! An elaborate affair indeed

Looking at my very beautiful wife

You must think I'd feel really blissful?

The truth is

I am happy, yet somewhat worried and

a little troubled..

because I have totally bust my budget

on this wedding.

How did I bust the budget?

This takes u back to three years ago..

You b*tch

This toad got lucky and met a beautiful swan

She is so beautiful

Even the water she splashed on me is sweet

And what luck I got to meet her again

The formula always goes like this

When a hero meets a damsel in distress, he ...

hands her a tissue

Oh yes!

Who would have thought

I got bitten

Hey, what are you doing?

Oh! you brat!

I had such a hard time lugging these over

and you moved them back?

Sorry, sorry auntie..I didnt' know

Sorry? you're such a busybody

I'm not. These looked too heavy for you

Thanks for taking time to meet me

I thought you'd have forgotten me

How can I forget?

In my entire life

I've only been bitten by a woman once

Eh, thanks..and my apologies

Half a year late. Yet better late than never

Does the wound still hurt?

It's healed a long time ago

That picture you took of me, made me realise

how foolish I was

To have shed tears for a man like that

Congratulations

Thanks

Can you hand me a tissue?

It comes half a year late

But better late than never

I am Chua Wei Keat

Yeah I know. I am Chong Sze Xin

Hello Chong Sze Xin

Hellow Chua Wei Keat

Sze Xin

Huh?

In this age, who still uses film?

That's where the thrill is

You make it a point to think with every release of

the shutter..

that makes every single piece more precious

I'll alight here please

Bye

Miss, why did you walk home?

I'm not telling you

Hurry up. It's gonna start

For better of for worse

For richer or for poorer

Do you take her as your lawfully wedded wife?

Yes, I very much do

Baby, what happened to you?

Your friend isn't getting any better?

No, he's fine

Baby

If you are living your last days

what would you do?

I will bid everyone I know farewell

Catch up with friends and apologise for past misdeeds

Then spend the rest of my time with you

Will you marry me?

This soon?

If I am living my last days, I would regret not

having been your wife

So?

You'll have to be on one knee if this is a proposal

Haha, hey no

Will you marry me?

Baby

This, is the story of how the ugly toad got

his beautiful swan

Please tell me you're only the gardener's daughter

I really don't know if I should count myself lucky

This, is no ordinary swan

You've been dating for more than a year?

You are indeed secretive

Sze Xin, I really don't mean to nag

but why did you choose a B-grade?

You plan to get married this soon?

Sometimes, you may not even know someone

whom you've spent decades with

Much less a person you've dated for just a year?

Keat is a very simple person. It's not hard for one

to understand him

Simple?

Xin, you know I really don't want to nag

but don't you think it's your money he's after?

He only got to know my father five minutes ago

Xin, actually I still dont' know who your father is

You don't know me, Colin Chong?

Hello uncle, it's my pleasure to meet you

I will take good care of Xin

The daughter of Colin Chong will not wed shabbily

Uncle, I wouldn't let Xin wed shabbily

I will give her a grand wedding

Well, so much for "face"

That one promise that would be back to haunt me and break my bank

On what grounds?

I'll marry no one else but Keat

I'm carrying his child

Hey that is not true. And i'm still a virgin

Eh, I'm sorry, it wasn't intentional

Dad

Why are you back, Keat?

You shouldn't told me you're bringin a friend

This is my friend, Sze Xin

Hello uncle

Hello, hello

Hey, don't shake hands if your hands are dirty

Oh, I'm so sorry

It's okay

Come over and wash your hands

Here, here

Thanks, thanks, thanks

We'll have dinner after I'm done with
