Mostly applicable to Chinese Singaporeans though, but bloody hell we sure love to impress people, it can go up to 20 to 30k for a wedding, at least I think that’s roughly how much it can cost.
You got pre wedding photoshoots, which if you have money, you go to exotic countries like iceland or paris for your photoshoot
Then you got the actual day, you gotta rent the suit, the gown, play your game with all the best men.
And each table cost roughly 2k, and being chinese, usually it means trying to impress your friends, or your parents tryin to impress, inviting people you barely heard of.
Not to forget, the dinner menu are always the same shit, hell its the same as the one I had for prom.
And as a guest, you gotta pack angbao for it. Gotta roughly guess how much is ‘okay’ to give also.
Why can’t chinese folks just get married under the hdb instead? Because frankly, I much rather have that.
