It was my very close friend’s wedding on Saturday and Sunday so took a weekend flight to Kuala Lumpur last week. 🙂 I know I know, I’ve said it and I’ll say it again. I hate going to weddings. Too much effort for so much waiting. But this wedding was very interesting, especially in terms of format.
(Plus, no one knows me there to ask inane and stupid questions in an attempt for small talk. I write thousands of words on my blog to explain what I’ve been up to for what? *emo* -.-)
Anyway, so yes, the wedding was at Dewan Serbaguna Sapura, near Mines Resort City.
Labels outside the venue made sure we didn’t get lost. But of course we got lost. Haha. And Kuala Lumpur is not a good place to get lost in. You need to pay tolls, and u-turns are a rare commodity. So don’t be an idiot. Don’t get lost. Don’t miss the entrance. Don’t miss the exit. If you don’t have Smartag, make sure u have extra change. Hehe.
But we arrived safely, and got to camwhore while waiting for the boys to park.
There was a red carpet, and you leave gifts for the bride and groom at the door.
Inside you see the usual fare: the pelamin, many tables, many people and buffet tables. Awesome thing though is you don’t have to wear cara melayu/baju kurong but can wear normal clothes. My friend Fitri said only close family wear baju kurong/cara melayu.
Anyway, for Malaysians, wedding ceremonies are usually held for several hours. In our case 12pm to 4pm. Over the 4 hours of the ceremony, the bride and groom, with their family entertains and hosts the function, kinda like the Brunei hari raya open house, as guests come and leave. So tiring!
But for this couple, tired or not, you can barely tell. 🙂
Selamat pengantin baru to my good friend, K and now wife, N. Semoga berbahagia sehingga ke anak cucu.
