Our First Wedding Photobook

A big 'thank you!' to Kirby and Maureen for putting together a lovely photo montage book of our wedding. It is our very first printed photobook and it will always be shown with pride for the extent that our friends go to for us. ^_^

... Skip forward into the recent past (26 Nov 2005) ...

We finally found the time to open the 2005 box of timeslips.

Note to self: Feature the interesting to the obscure in a special section on when there's time to update the site.

And finally, all is revealed with this secret message from 'big boss'...

For a more detailed explanation of how Project:CRON fit into the wedding, you can check out which I hope to update very soon with all these vids.

Essentially, we opted not to have a guestbook for our wedding. Instead, we prepared cards for every guest on every table, and the Kazoku agents passed them out in sealed envelopes while this secret message was playing on the screen. That would be 'phase 2'.

(Unknown to all, even our Kazoku agents, the actual Time Capsule they were protecting was hidden in the simple red square pedestal that the powerbook was resting on. The powerbook was a 'red herring', a fancy decoy running nonsense programs spitting out nonsense text and numbers. *grin*)

At the end of the high tea reception, the cards were to be sealed in time capsules dated for opening in the future.

All that's left would be to open the capsules on our anniversaries in 2008 and 2015 and see what our guests wrote. We'll feature some of the interesting and unique ones on our vlog and website then.

... Be part of the future with Project:CRON ...

(Guess who acted as "big boss" ^_^)


At the end of the wedding ceremony, the secret of Project:CRON was revealed, first with this teaser video clip done in animated comic style to keep with the animation theme.

Simultaneously, the 3 secret kid agents changed into their CRON tee-shirts and the Kazoku agents prepared themselves for 'phase 2'.


Guests arriving at the wedding should notice a special display table with 2 ibooks and a powerbook near the entrance to the ballroom foyer.

The ibooks had on their screens a curious animated screensaver with the words "project CRON" and the powerbook, sitting between them upon a red square pedestal was running some strange programs that filled four screen windows with text and numbers... Just what exactly was Project:CRON?

The Mac-nificent Proposal

Fast-forward to the Prelude to the Bride's Entrance...

We got Meow Studio to do up a cutesy animation of how I proposed to Kris, keeping to the theme of an 'anime-styled' wedding which started with the spoof of Mr and Mrs Smith. Here's the Flash animation that was played just before Kris entered the ballroom with her dad.

Keys In The Boot

And after waking up bright and early on wedding morn...

The very first case of Murphy's Law. In almost typical sitcom fashion, the groom and groom's men find themselves stuck at the driveway because the keys to the car in the driveway blocking the bridal car are locked in the car's boot. :P

Thankfully, uncle Bobby drove all the way from his home to our place to unlock the boot with a spare key. We arrived at Kris' place just in time to 'snatch' the bride, not giving the sisters much time to 'play' us.

In fact, we even got the chance to 'play' them... but more on that in the official video, I believe.

Sticky Pens

Just got back from our honeymoon and am now processing all the vids we took. We start our vlogging from the night before the wedding...

Most grooms hope to have an early night the day before the wedding (those that don't do stag nights, of course) but something usually pops up to keep them occupied. Who would have thought that for my wedding, it'd be sticky pens?

Final sleeping time: 3am... Wake-up time: 5am... Total sleep time: 2 hours.

One-Third of our Lives

Know how it is that we probably spend 1/3 of our lives on our beds? Well, we figured that we'd better invest in a good mattress then, and what we got came rather highly recommended. It's been said that a distinguished Singaporean (guess who? :P) bought from this brand too (for his daughter, I believe it was).

I guess I can sleep well knowing that other significant people who would value a good rest after a hard day's work chose items of similar quality (or brand, at least :P)
