Hi all. End of May last week, I went to Sekinchan, Kuala Selangor for a wedding invitation. It was my senior's wedding.
Eira and Faiz.
It was amazing to see a different culture and tradition of Banjar people there on how they were celebrating wedding party, and how the people gather around cooperating. It was something new to me cause I'm not a Banjar people. Yeah, the language is quite differ than a normal malay but it isnt really weird for me cause I could understand some words - lil bit similar to my own mother tongue language.
I spent 3 days 2 night over my senior's house. It wasnt awkward for me cause it is not my first time staying over there. I have to say that I already make a good-close relationship with her family too. I wasnt alone though, I came with my college mate - una, mimi and suha. All of them are originally from kedah (my dad's origin birth place). Comes to my surprise that since that day we became close to each other cause before I never know them despite we are studying at the same place!
Anyway, let's continue to the wedding process. On the 30th May at 9.40pm, my senior - sis Eira has officially became Faiz's other half. They were wearing soft pink outfit and both of them look great and gorgeous!! Here's the picture..
The akad nikah went well that night. I am so tremendously happy for sis Eira and her hubsy captain Faiz. Alhamdulillah its a new chapter for both of you living as a husband and wife. And I pray for your marriage last forever showered by happines and blessing and surrounded by love.
The day was tough. Why? Cause the whole village is out of electricity. Blackout. Damn hot man! Imagine doing work in such a hot situation but glad that we could make it although it was hard. Alhamdulillah the electricity was back around 7pm something *if I'm not mistaken* so it doesnt ruined the akad nikah process.
The next day is the peak of the wedding ceremony where the bride and groom will show themselves off to all the guest whom are invited. Still, the same malay tradition, they will walk to the house and sit on the "pelamin" (a place where they have prepared chair for the bride and groom to sit and face the guests) *sorry I dont know the exact word for pelamin In english*. Since sis Eira is marrying a soldier, captain Faiz - they have to use the formal wedding protocol. Now let's move your eye to the next picture to make you understand.
As you see the picture above, where the bride and groom will walk through the red carpet with the soldiers as their - somehow I just called them bodyguard. Haha. This is one of the protocol they must follow.
Now the picture was about to tell you that they were heading to the pelamin..
This is how pelamin looks like. A simple design yet so nice and beautiful. And there were the bride and groom sitting facing the guests. That girl is one of the bridemaid which will stand and comfort the bride and same goes to the other side.
Cake cutting session. This is also one of the soldier-formal wedding protocol. In a normal wedding, we definitely dont need that mens in formal outfit with swords around the cake ☺️
And thats me and my friend. Must be you wondering why only me wearing a green outfit differ from my friend aye? Well actually they are 5 bridemaids for the wedding which wearing the same color outfit and these girls will involve in the wedding photoshoot. Apparently I wasnt one of them. Thats why you see me in a diff color outfit. Anyhow, on that week, maybe like 2 days before the wedding, two of the girls stated that they won't come - for some reason of course. So they left these 3 girls. And for that reason also, my appearance became a replacement for the gone 2 girls. It wasnt my plan though but yeah it was fun to be one of them. 😄
After the wedding ceremony ends, we were heading to sekinchan paddy field to shoot the post-wedding photos.
Beautiful shot by the paid photographer on the second picture. The first one taken by me.
Anyway, while we were shooting... There was a very very hilarious moment made by me that day. We were instructed by the photographer to pose alone in the middle of the paddy field. When it comes to my turn... I was stumbled upon a rock and fell down on the paddy grass. I couldn't control myself and loose my balance. Nice shot, there were 6 to 8 bikers around and all of them laughing at me and seriously I hardly stop laughing myself too! 😂😂😂
The mud had ruined my flat shoes but I was so happy and satisfied that at least I could make everyone laugh and happy - of course I'm the one whom created a funny moment so that everyone there won't forget that amazing photoshoot. 😁
So here's my selfie 😘
It's us! The other 3 gorgeous girl is my senior's good close friend and became my close buddy too! 😂😜
So thats a wrap!
To my dear sister Eira and husband captain Faiz, Thank you for inviting me to the wedding. It was fun and a great moment I have here. Sorry I couldn't join the groom side party cause my final exam is just around the corner. I am glad that I could helped you for the wedding preparation. It was nice to know both of you. Thank you for accept me the way I am cause I know most of time I always make jokes of you guys. 😜 may your marriage last forever till jannah. Sayang akak Eira lillahi taala. Jadi isteri yg solehah, ibu yg baik untuk anak2 kelak ye. And to captain Faiz, be a good responsible understanding husband. Treat your wife as a queen cause you know your life would not complete without her and be ready to be a good loving father soon! I pray for you guys to get anak cepat2.
