Traditional Chinese Engagement Party
GlobalGranary.Org sends its Best Wishes to Shamcey Supsup and congratulations to the lucky man, Lloyd Lee.
These two beautiful people celebrated their engagement with a Chinese party, complete with all the traditions and superstitions that go with it.
Marriage is not the culmination of a relationship, rather it is just the part of it. Relationship will metamorphosed into different phases over the years, some go from strenght to strenght and some unfortunately will die a natural death. So using all the ammunitions and hocus pocus bode well in my book. Anything that deemed to gel a relationship can all be for the better.
Beauty Queen Shamcey Supsup Is Engaged To Boyfriend Lloyd Lee
In a traditional Chinese engagement party, Miss Universe third runner-up Shamcey Supsup walked backwards toward her soon to be husband.
Why backwards? Apparently, Chinese belief said it will drive away bad luck from the soon-to-be-married couple.
Lee and Supsup held their engagement party during Father’s Day on June 16 (Sunday) with their close family and friends. The day coincided with their second year anniversary as well. There is no date posted on when the wedding will happen.
On her Instagram account (@supsupshamcey), the beauty queen posted this message: “Happy 2nd anniversary to my finace @lloydtlee. Looking forward to forever with you.”
Her manager, Jonas Gaffud, shared a photo on his account showing Lee entering the venue hall. He said in the caption that the Chinese businessman is waiting for his fiance.
During the traditional engagement party, the guests would have to bring gifts for the couple. The bride, however, would have to offer half of the gifts she received to her groom’s family. This is a sign of respect.
All gifts received and given out should come in even numbers as a sign of good luck. During the party, the families of both parties formally accept their future son-in-law and daughter-in-law.
“The ceremony itself is full of symbolism in the form of gifts, food, and rituals done in chronological order, and each with a specific meaning.”
Gaffud also posted a photo with the happy couple after Supsup entered the venue hall walking backwards. In his message, he used the hashtag “#tsunami” referring to Supsup’s famous walk during the Miss Universe 2011 competition.
