During the Straits Chinese styled tea offering ceremony, relatives gather

in front of the bridal couple. The tea is infused with longan slices and tastes sweeter than what would be otherwise served at yum cha brunches.

Made of rice-based dough, coloured concoctions are rolled into even bite-sized balls for cooking in syrup

- the symbolic and meaningful eenh. This is consumed on the wedding morning to signify the roundness of a complete beginning to a married life.
