Did You Do This?

Nothing much to write about today, except I found this photo of my nephew and niece jumping on my bed.

This was the day after our wedding. We arrived home from Sheraton Subang and they came over for the bed-jumping ceremony.

Ahh, looking at the photo reminds me of some good memories. It was the day before we left for our honeymoon. It feels like such a long time ago. The bedside table was so clean!

Bed jumping is one of the customs during Chinese weddings. A young boy is supposed to jump on the new couple’s bed on the wedding night so that they will conceive a son really soon.

As you can see from the photo, even my niece Amber got involved in the action.

But we didn’t follow the custom to the letter, because it was the next day. Plus, there were supposed to be some other stuff under the bed.

I guess it really works!

How many of you did this on your wedding night?
