Going through traditional Chinese wedding rites might be a chore to some couples these days.

But compared to all that a couple has to weather through together in 50 years of marriage?

Rites are a breeze.

In the city of Seremban in Malaysia, Siong and Kim celebrated their golden anniversary by “getting married again” — after five decades of being together.

Relive the big day

Together with their families and friends, Siong and Kim went through the traditional Chinese customs again on Dec. 29, such as gate-crashing and tea ceremony.

On this big day, the groom, Siong, sat in his own car to fetch the bride, Kim, unlike the first wedding back then when he had to borrow someone else’s car to do so.

The groom wore a mandarin-collared white blouse with black jacket and pants, while the bride wore the traditional red embroidered jacket and skirt (kua).

They were both accompanied by their children and grandchildren who were their groomsmen and bridesmaids.

Here are some snippets of what happened on this joyous occasion.

The ladies definitely did not make things easier for the Siong and his guys during gate-crashing.

Some of the things they did included quizzing the groom about when he met the bride, asking him to put on lipstick for one of the guys, bursting balloons, as well as saying “I love you” in multiple languages.

When asked what he was first drawn to Kim, Siong said that it was her beautiful long hair.

However, he quickly elaborated that he loves both Kim’s personality and her hair.

After overcoming all the “obstacles” and dishing out the red packets, Siong finally got to meet and kiss his wife of 50 years.
