It was on a Friday morning. My dad had driven us to this stunning hotel situated next to a beach in Port Dickson, Malaysia. There were marble stairs of pale brown leading the guests to a higher platform where the lobby desk was. Tall poles, the same color of the stairs looked as if they were weight lifters lifting up the wooden ceiling. The dark brown wooden ceiling was the shape of a triangular prism with a cut-open base; hanging from it was a brilliant chandelier. Just by sitting in the comfy sofas placed over there and gazing out at all the green and glossy trees made it already so very alluring.
I immediately changed into my swimming suit and with my brother and sister we rushed to the pool. The water was limpid; like looking through a crystal, I could see the bottom of the pool! I called my three-year-old sister and climbed up a set of staircases to a water slide. Her hands were clasped tight around my arms then… “Woo Hoo!” we slid down on a high speed. My body shifted left and right, which made my sister even more terrified (she was reluctant to go on it again after that happened).
Then, my mom came to fetch us back to the room. “ It’s four O’ clock already! Go back and shower,” She called out. “It’s almost time for the wedding!”
My brother and I started to ran on purpose back to the room and I added, “Jessicaaa, (my younger sister) hurry or else we will be locking the doorrr!” She had no choice but to chase us. That was hilarious!
After washing and cleaning up, I picked out a scarlet colored dress. When everyone in my family was finished, we walked steadily to the beach. I wondered why we had to dress so formal if we were going to the beach. I immediately stopped wondering when my brother blurted out, “Whoa!” I raised up my head then the first item I saw was a four-layered cupcake stand. It was filled with sky blue and creamy white icing topped with an edible pearl ball on either chocolate or vanilla flavored muffins. The more I stared at it the more my tummy ringed. Though, it was more of a decoration so I tried not to linger around it.
Ignoring the cupcakes, I saw the beautiful view of the whole wedding. A large transparent canopy with blue and white silk drooping down and covering the dining tables, several white rectangular pieces making up a walkway in the sand that leads to the seats and to where the bride and my uncle will exchange rings.
I love how they had their wedding next to the beach; everyone took off their shoes and felt the damp, moist, and cool sand. It feels very relaxing. While sunset, people were enjoying their wonderful and scrumptious dinner. The sky was ruby red and orange, the aqua water reflecting the color made such a magnificent site.
I want to capture that scene and always remember it.
