Who doesn’t know Museum Macan? The Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Nusantara.
Surely most Jakarta people and art enthusiast know about this New Iconic Art Space. This Museum has been a great platform to showcase National artworks and International artworks like Yayoi Kusama.
I visited Yayoi Kusama’s art exhibition back in National Gallery Singapore, and it was awesome. When i came to know that Jakarta will hold the same exhibition, i was a little skeptical. thinking that it may not be as great as the one in Singapore. But Museum Macan surprised me big time! Lovely minimalist interior with high ceiling, sun rays that penetrates through the glasses makes the space even more beautiful. Kudos to MET Studio Design (London) who turned Museum Macan to be the first modern and contemporary museum in Jakarta with International Standard.
Fast forward to few months after Yayoi.
I remember it was Friday night, when Ko Samuel from Riviera Jakarta asked me if im available to MC a wedding engagement in Museum Macan around this particular date. I was in shocked and asked him if we can do that in Museum Macan?
Apparently it was the first time for all the vendors too, to be in Museum Macan for work. I was very excited, cause i love the place, for me Museum Macam have some MET Gala Vibes. Haha.. Ok, i was imaging to far that time since i need to meet the client first, and see if they are good with me.
PS : i normally will set a meeting with all my future clients, just have some chit-chat and let them get to know me better, and vice versa. so they will know if my personality can match their event and expectations.
Right after Ko samuel told me, i received a message from the client, and we set up the meeting date. The first meeting had to be rescheduled, cause the bride-to-be had some urgent errands to do. and we rescheduled for another date.
I was ready for the meeting the night before, set 2 alarms since we agreed to meet in the morning. But unfortunately, i was late by 45 mins. Cause of the cough and flu that i was having. Luckily the bride-to-be is a very kind person, she said she’ll wait. I came and apologise to her and explained that i was very drowsy because of the medicine. After that We chatted for awhile that day, asked what the engagement event would be like, the guests age group, etc etc. *to think of it again, it wouldnt be the same now, no one would like to see us in the future if we have any cough and flu..
I felt so bad right after she left, and texted ko Sam that i came late and i was in bad shape because of the cough and flu, and it’s oke if the bride-to-be decided to let me go. cause i thought i had a bad first impression. haha.. But thank God, at the end the kind bride-to-be decided to engage me for the event.
Months after that, we got to gather for the technical meeting. We Got the know more of Bianca & Shaun and their family, and noticed that they have a sweet and supporting big families, and a kind host to every vendors.
Finally, The wedding engagement that we’ve been waiting has arrived. The wedding organizer have to work extra on that day, cause it’s not a normal place to hold a party. They have to be extra careful with all the art pieces and all others things too, like how to handle the kitchen, since the building is not designed for that, and many other things that i’m not quite sure with.
They decor team has set the place beautifully that day and have to be careful with a lot of things too. It was just an exciting moment for all of us i guess. I came 2 hours early prior to the event, and saw the family and friends were practicing for the surprise performance. Like many other events, i cant wait to see the reaction of the bride and groom.
When the event started, i saw how excited their big family are, and how happy Bianca & Shaun are as they marched in, followed by the warm welcome speech of Bianca’s dad and toast for the bride and groom to be. The rest of the night was a night of celebration and a night to remember. A very intimate party where Bianca’s mom and friends contribute lovely songs to the couple, where at the end of the day everyone is singing together in harmony, and everyone seemed to enjoy the celebration.
The father and daughter dance was so touching as well, as i can see some tears fell to the ground, and how romantic the dance between Bianca and Shaun afterward. and, finally my favorite time has come. The surprise for the bride and groom to be! haha
It was a simple surprise, but i can see how genuine the family and the friends are to make that day memorable to Bianca & Shaun. Two of them was smiling ears to ears to for the whole performance and ended the dinner with dancing with the whole family and friends. Indeed such a night to remember ❤
