IHSAN & SAKINAH
Almost a month I did not visit my own blog . All was because being too busy with the marriage of Ihsan and Sakinah . Both were married on the 18th of November,2007 at the Alam Shah Mosque at Jalan Pudu,Kuala Lumpur. I travelled a long way from Sik,Kedah with my wife and my two children Salwa and Ikhwan to attend the historic ceremony . Thank you to my besan Haji Khialdin and his wife Kak Teh for their friendliness and the hospitalities given .
Returned on the 20th November I started the preparations for the kenduri which I promised on the 26 th of the same month. Exactly one week left. Luckily I am surrounded by the kampong folks who did much help and the labour they rendered is very valueable , and I will never forget it . The gotong royong brought a very successful kenduri on that day . The jamuan was a collection of rural dishes ; gulai rias pisang , gado-gado,sambal belacan,ulam ala kampong comprising of ulam raja,pegaga,petai,sawi bukit,pucuk samak,pucuk2 hutan yang lain2 lagi, juga termasuk ikan talang kering yang di goreng bersama cili kering dan bawang . All the guests were satisfied with the food aspecially the gado-gado which Mak Wan herself made the kuah , was finished just by 2 o'clock. The gulai rias pisang was was extraordinary because I bought the rempah giling . This dish was a special permintaan from my besan Haji Khialdin . He wanted his rombongan to taste that rural curry;the curry of banana shoots plus beef .
Being to short a span of time I could manage to invite only a few friends , and that also by phone calls . Many could not be contacted , because some had change their numbers . I didn't prepare any cards . What a pity . Those who could be contacted all attended . Thank you to you all. Thank you Pak Non and his Mak Wan who made possibble to attend , but that gado-gado of pucuk ubi kayu,tokqua and toge had already finished . But that tapai pulut was a bit keras because pulut susu was not found in market.
Insyaallah , if well prepared the impossibble could be made posibble.
Thank you to all , without you all , I could do nothing.
Alhamdulillah....I convey many thanks to Allah for the good weather; no rains and not to hot.Without the help of Allah nothing is possibble.
May I wish the new couple a happy life dunia dan akhirat . Selamat berhoneymoon.
Regards from ayah dan emak .
