hi all, I'm not a hainanese but my fiance is.
But his mum knows nothing of the tradionational/customary stuffs.. Only say that must fetch bride and have tea ceremony.. *faintz*
Can anyone advice me on any special things to take note for tea ceremony or what time must the bride rch groom's home?
Do we need to give angpows to all the kids?
Hi All.. seems tat most of the "older" members haven been logging in..
Hi Suzi, I'm a Hokkien but my hub is hainanese.. My MIL also don really know wat are needed thus, mine was a simple one with Oranges, Red Wine, Cakes, Si Dian Jin, Bin Pin for Guo Da Li
on AD, same like other chinese, he come fetch me then go his home tea ceremony, back to my parent's hse for tea ceremony.. the only thing extra was that we are supposed to give angpows to our juniors who are not married.
being a MUA, i have hainanese brides that leave home b4 sun rise, thus timing wise, it all depend if your parent or PIL check the Tong Shu for good timing or not..
Hi Kokoyln.. hmm.. is this a tradition for Hainanese "only thing extra was that we are supposed to give angpows to our juniors who are not married"?
We not having Guo Da Li thingy.. only straight to the tea ceremony then back to hotel.. my side not pure chinese so no need go back..
Hi Suzi, some elderly insist on giving ang bao to the junior who are single (irregardless of age). So u have to check if either side has such request.
If the elderly is particular or stringent abt the customary, then some points to note are:
1) Person who is assisting in the tea ceremony to be a lady of seniority
2) Seating wise is "’j¶—‰E". The bride will served the tea facing the male elder.
3) Serve tea in this order:
- Grand uncles/aunties
- Elder siblings
- Elder cousins
These are basically Chinese rules in tea ceremony. Hainanese customs for GDL are very simple.
Ah mais and ah gors, I have some items which I do not need anymore. I do not intend to sell (coz I dunno how much to price each item). Let me know if you want them.
1) IKEA plates holder stand (used once) - 6 pcs
2) IKEA white cutlery trays (used once) - 1 x big, 1 x small
3) NUK latex teats for normal bottle (new) - 2 x size 1 medium flow
4) NUK latex teats for premium bottle (new) - 1 x size 1 medium flow
Hi Suzi, Ivied has answered you most of the question. as for the seating/serving position, just remember, Male is always left, Female always right.
some Hainanese are particular in customs esp older generation thus u better chk with your hubby's side on some procedures. If all are modernised thinking then u will probably save a lot of preparation time..

We have a list of our "members"... keke, no la, just an Excel where we share with each other our details. Most of us now chat on MSN. The group (of about 10 or so of us - all ladies with the exception of Lance, the only thorn) meets up a few times a year, like during CNY, Xmas and also perhaps one more time in the middle of the year.
If u don't mind, can share some info about yourself that u are fine to divulge with us?
Come to think of it, most of us have actually known each other for 2years plus already?
