At the home of the bridegroom, the newly wedded offer tea to their parents, uncles and aunties, and elder sisters and brothers-in-laws to show respect. In return they receive valuable presents from the elders. Then their younger sister and brother, and younger cousins congratulate them.
The Bride has been won. The accompanying Warriors are decorated. Everyone wishes the newly wedded happiness, long lives and prosperity. The Bride and the Bridegroom accompanied by the Warriors are on their way home where a warm welcome is waiting for them. At home the Bride and Bridegroom pray to Heaven, Bodhisattva Guan Yin and Gods.
Winning the Bride’s heart is more a battle of wits than a battle of might. So the Bridegroom, with the support of his warriors, sings a love song. This isn’t enough. He has to demonstrate his willingness to sacrifice for the Bride. He drinks an ominous-looking drink, which turns out to be something sweet. This isn’t enough. He is given another drink, but a Warrior gallantly drinks it for him, and it turns out to be sweet, sour, bitter and spicy all in one, symbolizing that the Bridegroom is willing to go through all difficulties for the Bride.
The Bride’s defenders ask on behalf of the bride what the Bridegroom is think of. What else besides, “I love you”. The Bridegroom also brings some gifts for the Bride’s defenders, all enclosed in a big red packet. Eventually the Bridegroom wins the Bride.
