I was practically busy the entire month, all the way from Ramadhan. It’s very rare to see me away from the computer, except movies to put me to sleep.
Well, the wait is almost over, at least half of the burden is already uplifted.
My brother married his high school sweet heart (ain’t that sweet). They’ve been together since form 4, that makes it 8 years before they made it official. Ain (my new sis in law) is from Malacca. You know how weddings are like, full of traditions, ‘Upacara membatalkan air sembahyang’, ‘pantun’ etc. Thank God Ain’s family was rather modernized (no funny rituals up their sleeves).
I took the opportunity to become their second photographer.
Boy trying out his outfit for tomorrow’s wedding. I had to learn how to tie the sampin. Well, I did help him wear it.
The typical line would be something like, ‘Aku terima nikahnya, <name> dengan mas kahwin sebanyak <amount>, tunai’. Well, boy said the first 3 words and that was it.
I like this picture most.
Boy’s facial expression was rather serious all the time. I guess that’s his way of being king of the day. I like this one in particular. Not sure he bit his tongue or he’s sleepy, I reckon it’s the latter.
But before I lead you to my Flickr, there was one ritual that caught me.
I naively said out loud while I was snapping the photo,”memang ade upacara orang Melaka ‘cuci kaki’ sebelum masuk rumah? Cool gileeee!”
“Bukanlah! Tadi pengantin pijak lecah, takkan nak masuk rumah dengan lumpur?”
… shit MALUNYE!
ps: Official invitation on Thursday. I need to sort the goodie bags, tents, fogging from MPAJ, more gardening.. arrghhh.. serabut! But I like 😉
ps: Ain is also my blog reader.
