Malaysia Day (Sept 16th, 2012) was coincidentally the first day of the eighth moon on the Chinese lunar calendar. It being an auspicious day, fifteen couples in Ipoh decided to tie the knot, and thus, a mini-mass wedding was conducted at Wisma Chin Woo by the President of the association, Dato’ Ooi Foh Sing, who is also an Assistant Registrar of Marriages.

To find one person to spend the rest of the life with is an utmost difficult task, and it is only through hard work and prayers of their parents that wedding couples could enjoy this special moment.
