We headed to the wedding celebration dinner with fellow expats, Manuel and Tania. The official wedding ceremony was held earlier that day and was for close family only. Upon entering the dinner, we were greeted by the Bride and Groom, had our pictures taken with them and then escorted into a large ballroom. We were conveniently sat up front in the "boss/work" section, right next to family and very close to the head table. After a few introductions and speeches, the wedding meal began. Course after course was brought to the table with little down time for digestion. Just 2 straight hours of eating! Here are a few pictures from the celebration.
The bride wore a hot pink dress to the reception!
The Bride and Grooms' families toasting the new couple!
One of the toasts (loosely translated) was may they not have to work so much or work late into the night, so that they may have time to enjoy the finer things in life, like making babies.

We were entertained by the Malaysian version of Adam Sandler in the Wedding Singer. Toward the end of the meal, Eric was suckered into singing some karaoke!
