Majlis Bertandang...

In the Malay culture the wedding is done by the woman side. It starts of with the Akad Nikah ( Solomised of the marriage ) In this case it was a marriage between our third grandchildren Anwar and the bride Aqidah on the 11th March 2022,  follow with a reception on thr 12th. Then the next week on the 19th our daughter and her husband, the bridegroom parents organise another ceremony to celebrate their son wedding, where they get to invite their relatives and friends for the special occasion.  It was done at the Banquet Hall of the Felda Tower in town. It was an elaborate reception full of colour which includes the pomp and splendour of the Malay culture. It was indeed a night to be remembered.  As the grandparents we were delighted to get to meet most of our relatives in one go. It is at an occasion like this that we can continue to promote as well preserve out traditional arts in all its glory. A tradition that would outlasted us all. About is an image of the wedding ceremony. Such a colourful event indeed.

Have a nice day.

Twinkle Villa Janda Baik...

A few months ago, I surfed the net trying to find an outback resort in the jungle of Janda Baik, an enclave of the east side of the main range of Malaya, for a short retreat with the family. In Malay the main range is call the Banjaran Titiwangsa. Most of the forest in the main range of Malaya are some 160 million years old since it was not touch by the ice age.

She did her homework and then make a booking to get the whole family there on the weekend that she is free. As usual with a three-generation family it difficult to get everyone along in one go. In the end she books a villa that could accommodate six and was allotted the Villa Resak. All the villas are names after the

Of Fig Planting in Malaysia...

I have always love to eat cake or biscuits that contain figs and never thought that fig tree could be planted in this country. Of course we have the local fig trees but it just grow wild and most of the time folks in this country never use it for food. But recently when I join a closed group on Facebook that call Malaysia Gardeners I notice that many friends talk and exchange ideas and information on Fig and growing it in their garden. Some kept exchanging variates and give it among friends. On one posting in the group a friend post a box of cutting that he got from a friend from another part of the country and that he has indeed start planting the plants with some success. I post a comment on the posting and jokingly say that I would love to have some cutting. He reply on my personal message that he could send me some if I give him my address. Without much ado I let him have my address and today, this morning I received a small package from the postman.  Delighted with the cutti

The Queen visited Melaka 1971...

The Queen visited Melaka in 1971. This is a posting from my other Blog. This picture is from my archive... A scene where the Queen of England visited Malacca in the early seventies.. I was given the responsibility of organizing the cultural tour for the Queen and her entourages which includes Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh and the late Lord Mountbatten... Looking back to those great days in my life, I felt it was just like yesterday...The memories still clear in my mind... What a great day it was....During my years of working in the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports Malaysia, I had many opportunities like this, meeting heads of government both when these dignitaries visit Malaysia or when I had the opportunity to go on official visits to foreign countries.... [that's Me talking with Prince Philip]
