Sudin and his soon to be new family and bride… congrates Din!
Saruddin just got to Sarawak a lil bit more than a year ago… and now he’s already engaged! So what… I’m supposed to be a loser? I’m supposed to be pressured to find a spouse very very soon? NOT! Anyway, congrates to Din… don’t wait for too long ok! A lil bit of intro abt Din’s soon to be bride… her name was Vicky, now Siti Aishah… a Bidayuh converted to Islam quite a few months back. Her face wearing a tudung reminds me of a friend back at the uni, Saidatul Maria (now a happy mum!)
Anyway, Din wasn’t kidding when he objected to us following the party with Halim’s lowered & skirted Wira Aeroback. We hitched Isma’s Iswara Aeroback on the way to the bride’s village, Kg Engkeroh in Tebakang…. a couple of hours drive from Kuching! It was damn far and challenging I tell you the access road to the village was very bad we were quite relieved we didn’t go with Halim’s car. We have to go through an oil palm plantation before eventually arriving at the village. But it was rewarding… the view was spectacular as the village is surrounded by hills. Well… that shows Din’s endeavour to pursue his love.
We were first greeted by the village head and Sudin’s father started by informing the intention of their party… to propose to the soon to be bride. The village and religion head then resumes with their conditions (some were quite weird but hey it’s their tradition… my dad prolly went to the same process last time ). Apparently Din had to pay RM35 to the soon to be bride’s elder brother because he’s not yet married (Malay term: Langkah Bendul… only that the payment is regardless of gender, langkah abang ke, kakak ke, still hafta pay them RM35 each i guess as a sign of respect). Then there were weird requests for offerings like towels, talcum powder, soap etc etc… all in all, it only costs Sudin RM400+.
Anyway, the ceremony was simple but still very much lively as Din brought 3 cars of relatives to the village. It was more like an ice-breaking ceremony for both of their families. It was quite an extraordinary experience… cross cultural wedding proposals. To Din… congratulations and all the best wishes to you and Siti!
