|The reception was held on
19 November 2004 in Raub, a small town in the state of Pahang,
Malaysia. We drove for 2 hours from Kuala Lumpur and thought for a

wondered if Edwin managed
to go for his second party...supposed to start 12 midnight. Yen Li had
to rush to her boyfriend's birthday party also at midnight. I went home
to catch my whole family up watching "10.5", a movie about
earth-quake. What a night!
