Malaysian Wedding in Yemen!

that's a new way to use it...hahaha

Friday, 5th June 2009:

I went to play football in the mornings as usual. Today not many Malaysians came to play football because there were to be a wedding (which I did not know) so, we played football against the Yemenis which we trashed 5-1!! They play so rough.. When we finished playing one of my friends asked me: "One of the Malaysian lecturers invite all Malaysians to his house for lunch, do you know?" I said: "No, what time? when?" My friend said: "Pergi tau.. Lepas solat jumaat."

So, after solat jumaat. My friend and I immediately went to the lecturer's house. It turned out that one of the Malaysian students here married the lecturers' daughter. Like a normal Malay wedding it is, there was "pantun", nasyid and silat presentations. Here are some pictures from the day:



The nasyid group.

And below is a part of the silat presentation (enjoy it):


Of course, we attacked the food the moment we arrived. The food (nasi minyak, ayam masak merah, daging kurma, *forgot the name of the rest of the food**) was quite nice that I ate a lot and I am having stomachache now because I haven't ate that much in a long time..hahaha

I forgot to take pictures of the tent and the inside - this is not like in Malaysia, the tent is semi-sphere and we sit on the earth (there is no cemented floor), but of course there are carpets and on the carpets are sofas - not sofas like in Malaysia either...hmmm... (I don't know how to say it and I can't find pictures of it).. Found it...

More or less like this..
