Aaron Ting and Jenny Chong had a wedding reception on the 1st of February, 2006 at the Rivera Lounge in Kingwood Hotel, Sibu. I thought it was a rather unique place to hold a private party for friends since at our age, the emphasis shifts from the traditional Chinese dinners to more relevant receptions for our age group since most people drink.
The entire Riviera Lounge was booked by the newlyweds for their wedding reception, so we had the entire place to ourselves. I know both the bride and groom since Jenny Chong is my classmate and Aaron Ting is the brother of another one of my classmates – Ita Ting.
Riviera Lounge has a full bar and it was open for the night so free flow beer, champagne and other drinks were available for the guests. I went with a couple of friends and it seems like everyone knows everyone in there coz we’re all classmates or friends. It’s great to catch up with all my ex-classmates and exchange contacts since we’re all working now.
The wedding reception also includes a buffet dinner which has soup, mix-your-own salads, desserts, finger food and, of course, the main course buffet fare. I loved the fish…I wonder how they managed to debone the thing and serve it in fillets while still retaining the taste of a classic steamed fish served in Chinese restaurants.

This is a photo of the couple – Mr. Aaron Ting and Ms. Jenny Chong. Aaron is working in KL and he’s a reader of sixthseal.com as well, which I didn’t expect and Jenny is doing her Masters in very interesting field. 😉
Here’s one of the many group photos taken throughout the night – I met with a lot of ex-classmates that I haven’t seen in ages!
L-R: Liza, Collena, Jenny (the bride) and Huai Bin (me). Chiew Yieng was there as well, she’s currently in Shanghai, me and her go way back – we used to swim in her pool at 2 am in the morning when we were in Form Five. Heh! Memories…
This is me and Ita Ting (the younger sister of Aaron Ting). She’s been my classmate ever since Form One and she’s a tennis player, represented our school and division (state?). She’s really good in tennis.
Here’s another photo of the couple of the night – Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Ting. Best wishes from all of us, and enjoy the honeymoon!]]>
