Umairah's Kenduri Menyambut Menantu, June 2011

Dear Diary,

My sister’s wedding closing ceremony was a kenduri menyambut menantu at the groom’s house in Kuala Nerang. A group of kompang players started beating the kompang as soon as we walked towards the house.

We were greeted with warm hospitality by not only Fizan’s family members and relatives but also the whole village. They welcomed us with open arms and hearts. These shined through their actions and words.

The menus served to us were authentic masakan kampung and they were all mouth-watering. We had gulai nangka, gulai tulang with batang pisang, gulai ikan kering, sayur keladi, bawal masak sambal, ayam masak merah with plain rice. Not everyday we could find this kind of lauk-pauk. The treatment was first class. Whenever a plate emptied, they quickly replenished it.

When I looked around, all of my family and relatives were eating shamelessly without any care in the world. Memang pulun makan betullah! As for myself, I enjoyed eating that day TREMENDOUSLY...

Ermayum - Tak sama ke? Rasanya my sis je yg muka lain sikit, ikut muka bapa. Kami yg lagi tiga ada iras gak kot sebab ikut muka emak.
