A Weekend of Sunrise, Nasi Minyak and Teh Dangdut

What? Cuti Cuti Malaysia ke Dungun; Destinasi Bajet 2 Hari 1 Malam

When? 26-28 May 2007

Where? Dungun, Terengganu Darul Iman

Why? To attend a wedding banquet of my colleague, Ida.

Pristine beach. It stretches for miles.

Beautiful Sunrise at the Dungun Beach.

Nasi Dagang! The "must-eat" when you are on the East Coast of Peninsula Malaysia.

A amusing poster. House to house circumcism service is being offered. Check out the pictures. Snip! snip! I guess this would send chills down to any child's spine.

We saw an accident on our way home from the beach. The rider was thrown off his bike trying to avoid hitting a lorry right in front of my eyes. Someone's live is flasing in my eyes! I was tempted to send the picture of the biker sprawling on the road to the Star's thumbnail but decide not to. It is just bad taste. We left the scene after ensuring the biker was OK. He escaped with minor scrapes and bruises.

Silat martial art demo. This is to teach the wife (or the husband in some cases) self-defence in case of emergency...Heheh! Just kidding!

Merry making and singing with kompang.

The "bersanding" ceremony. The bride and bridegroom are being "displayed" to the friends and family on a "throne" called the Pelamin.

It has been awhile since I use my hand to eat rice. Right hand only, though. Left hand is reserved for something else.

One of the gift (hantaran) to the bridegroom. He obviously not a runner, or else he would be getting the latest Asics model! Heheh!

Bunga Manggar - Decorative flowers made of cut glitter paper wrapped around coconut leave spines (lidi). The lidis are then are stucked into a halved papaya fixed at the end of a pole.

Awan yang terpilu....A storm was brewing at the horizon. But rained shortly but the party went on.

Aren't they adorable?

Kids high on sugar.

Goodie Bag. Wah...Who knew that you would you get goodies bag too in a wedding?

1 x Bunga Telur (Decorative flower with an egg)

1 x Potpourri (ceramic bowl)

1 x Potpourri (pouch)

1 x Box of sweets

Yummy-licious: Nasi Dagang, Roti Canai, Kuih Bekham, Nasi kunyit, Nasi gorng Minang, Nasi Minyak, Apam and teh Dangdut.

Teh Dangdut. It will make your tongue do the dangdut goyang gerudi moves (heheh!)...We had this after dinner. The drink is served in a mug. Can you see the three distinct layers of milk, tea and froth?

Thank God there is a beauful beach for me to run off the calories that I piled during the visit.....(Inser burp here! Heheh!)
