Today is a big day for Pidin, son of our dearest friend – Arwah Prof Iskandar & Prof Jamaliah. Finally Pidin.. kahwin ko jugak ye.. We arrived at Alor Gajah right after the akad nikah ceremony. I saw the happy face of Pidin smiling to us when he saw us. He looked very smart n handsome. Naik seri pengantin..
After lunch we waited for the newly wed couple for the sanding ceremony. This was the funny part as Uci who was the best man had to pay ‘toll’ before Pidin could sit on the pelamin. This is the tradition that is still practise in our Malay tradition culture. I guessed Uci never knew n expected this to happen as he was clueless n panicked.
He left Pidin alone there negotiated with the toll guards. After minutes Uci came back talked n after a few RM notes given finally Pidin got to sit on the beautiful pelamin. When I see Pidin n his wife, the brothers n Laila it reminded me lots of their parents.
They managed to organize n arrange the big day without their parents around. I am very sure they got blessed from their parents.
Selamat Pengantin Baru Pidin dan semoga berbahagia dan berkekalan selamanya..
