Last weekend, my parents, my grandaunt and myself went back to my grandmother’s hometown, Bukit Pasir, Muar, in Malaysia, to attend my younger cousin’s wedding. It was a good time to catch up with other relatives too, especially meeting and catching up with my grandmother, do read about her story here.

It was planned to be a simple wedding dinner affair, buffet style, outside my auntie’s home. We went there in the afternoon for the tea ceremony first and mingle around with the relatives from the bride’s side. We stayed for a while before going back to rest before my parents went out sightseeing and shopping while I stayed in my grandmother’s home to chat with my grandmother, uncle, aunties and cousins.

In the evening, we went back to my cousin’s home for the wedding dinner function. Although simple, it was a more cosy and family feeling, village style or kampung style as it is known among us. There were many senior relatives coming down for the wedding dinner function too, it was great to see them. Caught up with my cousins and chatted, it was great to be back there with them.

After a few drinks there, went back to my uncle’s home to rest for the night.
