This past weekend, Mr. LA (short for Lame-Ass, aka Hubby, aka soon-to-be ex Hubby?), Miss Chatterbox, and I were in Bali for a relative's wedding. The bride was one of Mr. LA's niece, who was known for being um, a 'little' eccentric.

The bride and groom finally arrived at the venue. If we weren't speechless before, we were now. The bride dyed her hair gold and wore false eyelashes that would put many professional drag queens to shame. Her bridal gown was a beaded cream-colored corset with a mini skirt on the front and a long train at the back. Her whole dress was a concoction of tulle, organza, satin, and feathers. On one side of her hair was a huge pink flower with a net that covers part of her face. She was also wearing a fishnet stocking and a sky-high platform mary janes.

When came the time for the cutting-cake ceremony, the lights were dimmed, and from the far side of the venue, a five-tiered wedding cake appeared on a spotlight. It was quite an ordinary cake except that red rose petals decorated the top of each tier, from which dark-colored liquid dripped. It was obvious that many of us thought the cake looked bloody because there was a sudden hush all around as the cake was being carried by four men towards the stage. I myself breathed a sigh of relief as what seemed like blood turned out to be dark chocolate dripping.
