A night of vibrant colours....

Saturday,..........Considering I slept at 4am …. I really don’t know how I managed to wake up at 8am and to go hiking at Gasing Hill with Chelva. I was so beat after that lah… I managed to get some shut eye after lunch but had to wake up by 4pm and get ready for my cousin sister’s engagement. It was a Hindu engagement…. So it was the full works lah … It was held at the Sivan temple in Klang. One thing I like about Hindu engagements or weddings is that it is so vibrant and colourful but it can be a long ceremony…. …. it didn’t help that it was held in the open and not in a hall. … it was so hot that Saturday….and even though we were sheltered in a tent I was sweating buckets of water…………. I really pity all the women and girls in ‘sarees’ ……. I think it was nearly 40 degrees C that day…. Anyway every thing went really well and according to plan… and the vegetarian food was really good…… and this coming from an anti-vege person some more….keke




(The bride-to-be arriving at the temple with a convoy of classic bikes.... hhmmm actually can i call her a bride-to-be when its only an engagement...)

(The groom-to-be arriving with the 'hantaran' - offerings of different kinds of sweets)
(....and the ceremony begins....)






(blessing from the groom to be.......)



(Blessing from the bride to be......)




hmmm…. I can’t believe my cousin is getting married….. its like everyone’s growing up so fast… The wedding is in a month’s time… and I’m really looking forward to it….. hmmm but I wonder how long the wedding ceremony is going to be..

.

7am? Good luck, but at least the weather won't be so bad if its going to be at a temple again...

I love weddings as you already know but the best part about Hindu weddings is the laddu. Seriously. Maybe thats why I look like one. Sigh.
