Final Day In Singapore: Tea Ceremony

The last night we were in Singapore we went over to Aaron's Uncle Peter's house for a buffet & Tea Ceremony. Most of Aaron's family in Singapore was in attendance, which was so nice. :)
 Aaron and I serving "tea" to my parents
Basically during a tea ceremony the bride and  groom serve tea to their family.
If they drink the tea, it means that they accept you into the family. P.S. Luckily everyone drank the tea;)

I'm glad that I overcame my fears of flying/being in public to go to Singapore this summer.
It was really neat to experience the culture and get to meet my in laws!
I have loads of photos that I took on my cellphone as well that I will post in the coming days.
I hope you have a great week!

Yay! You finished blogging about Singapore! Aaron has a lot of family there, that is so awesome that you got to meet everyone. (My sister speaks Chinese and gave her daughter the middle name Mae, like on of Aaron's aunts.)
