tioman Is Wedding

03 June 2009
As we hadn't used the water maker for a few days I needed to flush the filters etc and charge to boats batteries. There was a wedding on today and everyone one invited, about midday we headed up the street to have a look at the celebrations where we were beckoned to come in. There was an official table set up like at our weddings and a couch decorated where the couple would sit and watch some performances such as martial arts. Lunch was being served for the guests and we were given plates and told to help ourselves. No sign of the bride and we asked where they were, the bride was still inside the house and the groom would be arriving at 3.00pm when the actual ceremony would start and they would eat at their table. After we had eaten we went up to the brides parents and gave our best wishes; our acquaintance Kapt Hun suggested we come back around three. Kapt hun spoke good English and spent time in UK doing his engineering degree. Chris called around 1300 to say he was on the way out of Singapore and would I find out about ferry times from Mersing. I walked up to the wharf to find that the last ferry was 1700 and the next would be 0730 the next morning, looked like he would have to overnight in Mersing. Chris suggested that I come over to Mersing and have the night with him there. I caught the 4.30 island time ferry which finally got away at 6.00pm arriving in Mersing at 8.00.
Neil and Pauline entertained Capt Hun on board for a few hours and then all went up to Zali's restaurant for dnner finishing up quite late around 11.00pm too tired to go back to the wedding for karaoke which was still going at 3.00am next morning!
