Selamat Pengantin Baru

Anita Sarawak sang this song back in the 70's.

Selamat Pengantin baru
semoga kekal abadi
bahagia ke anak cucu

da da da
( I dont remember)

Alhamdulilah bertemu jodohnya
( now i dont really remember)

Semoga bahagia ke anak cucu.

Heard this song, semoga bahagia ke anak cucu, so many times in my childhood. Wishing the bride and groom happy and their marriage ever lasting. To children and grandchildren.

Months of planning, a joyous day

A wedding normally takes months to plan. First the groom family must ask the bride has been spoken for, adat meminang. If the bride has not been spoken for, and the bride family is agreeable to the groom's family, as per future prospects, good family lineage etc. Then the pinangan diterima. From then on the future bride and groom "bertunang".

Menjadi Raja Sehari

Malay Wedding recreate the colorful royal like grandness for the day. The bride and groom wear their best clothes ever, more like Malay royalty. That is where the quote Raja Sehari came from.

An Occasion when Families get together

A Malay wedding is colorful in itself. This is the time when family members get together, getting to know each other, and renew acquintance. Renewing bonds of kinship. Sadly, I couldnt afford to go back and join the celebration.


You know what! This bring back memories some 25-30 years ago, (my memories doesnt function well) when my sister, (Fauziah's mother) Kak Sal aka Siti Salmiah Hamzah got married then. Yes Like mother then, like daughter now. My elder sister looks like her daughter now. How ones genes reappear again in ones progeny.

My Niece, Fauziah Mohd Nor got married over the weekend.
We wish her 'Selamat Pengantin Baru' semoga bahagia ke anak cucu with her new husband Syed Muhamad Iskandar.

Here are some photos that my sister Maslina emailed to me yesterday. She just been back from the village in Tanjong Karang.
