cuzzie’s wedding on our side. see you sunday. >< [edited 20/5/2007] so it was another round of "when's yours?", but back in the more familiar town of Raub. t'was again another traditional malay with the homecoming procession. 2 weeks ago, the groom arrived at the bride's house to get her, and this weekend, the couple both proceed to the groom's parent's place for the "menerima menantu" ceremony. both involve kompangs, bunga manggar, nasi minyak, and malay love/wedding songs/karaoke blaring thru some really huge speakers. this 2nd ceremory had no 'bersanding' ceremony tho. t'was also, again, a good break from the mundane cycle of city life. no computers, no WoW, ... yea that's it. ironically, a good time to catch up with what's happening in the world. 😛 saturday night saw us visiting my mak long's place cuz the TV at my ayah da's house where the ceremony took place was dominated by AF5 fans. and we only managed to watch 30 mins into the match due to bad weather. poor MU. the rain also brought out a massive invasion of termite queens, all biologically attracted to street lamps and headlights and worse living rooms and televisions. it wasn't so bad at mak long's place since everyone was aware of the things amassing outside the house, but when we returned to tok's place the living room light was left on and it being an old house had holes in the wall for ventilation. we had to turn off all lights in the house and turn on the porch light to make them leave. it worked, but they took their time so we helped them out with a penyapu lidi.
