It was my first time setting foot in Sibu. I was really excited, apart from the usual lingering after taste of being a not-so-welcomed immigrant from Peninsular Malaysia every time I passed Sarawak immigration with a slip that read a maximum 3 months stay. Unbelievable.
Otherwise, food was amazingly affordable and just simply over the roof in both taste and all-round satisfaction. Weather was superb. I was here to photograph my brother-in-law’s wedding with his wife from Sibu.
We flew into Sibu from KL for the actual day wedding dinner photography, spent the night and took a bum-busting 9 hour car ride back to Kuching the following morning! We didn’t have much time to rest when we arrived in Kuching. I had an early morning the following day for the Registration of Marriage (ROM) ceremony as the bride make up and prep was at the Waterfront Hotel, Kuching.
After the groom arrived at the hotel to pickup the bride, we proceeded to the groom’s house before going over to the Foo Chow Association in Kuching for the ROM shoot. This was followed by a dinner by the pool at the Waterfront Hotel. Here are just a small selection of photos from these two dinners and a ROM shoot.
