Wedding Weekend

Have I told you peeps that I looooove weddings? The more traditional the better. However, I haven't attended any wedding for ages. Thus, when the opportunity came last weekend, I made a point to go, come rain or shine. And rain it did, on the way there, and on the way home. It's OK, Mama said, it's just water. At least we were travelling in a car, not in a partially covered boat in the middle of the sea.

Oooh...but I digress. Who got married? Zue and Din, at Taman Sri Andalas, in the Royal Town of Klang. Kakak Zue is a cousin of my Abang Epi on his father's side. That makes her my second cousin by marriage, non? Anyway, just enjoy the pix.

The bride and her groom...all Colgate smiles, eh?
This is what you get when you bless the couple on the dais - they are called "bunga telur", hard boiled eggs to symbolise fertility it seems.
Close up look of the fertility thingy.
The lad manning the gifts table was either bored or dead tired.
The grand-pawrents....
The bride's aunts in uniform....oooh...the wedding has this English country and vintage theme....
The silver contraption contains rose water, betel nuts, leaves and other stuffs to bless the couple with. The umbrella was handy as it was raining.
The lady in the middle is the bride's younger sister, that's my Kakak Nurul on the right (Abang Epi's sister). I don't know the young man. Could be future member of the family?
The bridal cake aka leaning tower of Klang....
An interesting "cake" made of glutinous rice and meat floss. Nope....cats can't eat this, Mama said.
Wedding lunch was sumptuous. There were chicken, beef, vegetables and vegetables and vegetables......yummmm....
My Mak Long (Abang Epi's mum) and the happy couple...
Children (all cousins) were happily playing in front of the dais.
Mother and daughter...ehem...my Kakak Nurul is still single....any takers?
Yeah.....Madam Pawpawrazzi at the back.
The bride and her cousin....har har har
My Mak Long and her fan club.
My Mak Long, her fan club and the bride.
Angelina's note: Please send wedding invitations to me. I loooooove weddings.... purrr....meow!

Roy said...

Hey! Just in here to say thanks for the visit at Buddy's Place, and to let you all know that the Six Mouskateers and I are back up again and will be trying to do the Blog daily.

As to the wedding, looks very festive, the happy couple have that 'happyfied look', and the food looks delicious. Here's wishing the happy couple the best of everything and a LOOOONG and happy life together.

Hope all is well with everyone, and all will have a good weekend, and too, a good month upcoming.

Y'all come see us when you can.

Cheqna said...

Best wishes to the couple, may their marriage be blessed always.

Nurul dah grown up..I still imagine her as a slightly little girl that you brought to my office many yrs ago :-)

I always want to be given the bunga telur, something special about the egg, its not the same as the boiled one at home..hehe..but nowadays the hosts prefer to give chocs, cakes etc..not thrilling anymore.

:-)

Clooney said...

Gorgeous pictures! Uh, Angelina I thinks it will be a while before you gets an Invitation from me because I am the eternal Bachelor after all...

ninotaziz said...

I loved having those eggs with kicap, Cheqna. Yes, eggs are so much more healthier than sweets and cakes, right. Plus it does not attract ants. I prefer eggs too.

Angelina dear,
No wonder your Mama did not reply my sms, she was busy at the wedding!

Uncle Lee said...

Hi Cat, I really enjoyed looking thru all the wedding pics here. The last time I went to a Malay wedding was wayyyy back late '70s.
Pics all well taken too.
You took them?
Have a nice day.
Lee.
ps, are you now living permanently in Malaysia?

Zool Blogger said...

OO I want to married la. hohohoho

Al-Manar said...

The eggs were not red! Jadi tak ada 'telor merah'lah macam zaman lama lama di negeri persisiran pantai ini.

Au and Target said...

Concats to your family. Looks a lovely wedding.

Know what you mean about salt in cat food. Also, I want to know more about protein supplements but it's tough to get good information. I'm working on it and should have something good to read in 3 months time. :-) Meow!

Cara Lim said...

C-I-S: Do they still give the eggs as party favours? The last few weddings I attended, I got potpurri in some very fancy ceramic thingy.

TK said...

I love attending weddings too..tapi i suka part makan je..
Kek Pulut tu betul2 buat i meleleh air liur!!

Wan Sharif said...
