Last weekend I've been to Johore. A trip to convoi my cousin's wedding. Because my parents can't make their trip to Johore due to certain result, they send me. Sigh, luckily I've got my cousin's friends who accompany me through the journey. Well driving to Johore is very interesting though. 4 hours driving (proud having a fast nation car, ingat BMW je ke yang laju?) to Pontian from Shah Alam is very fun.
I found wedding ceremony in Johore is hugely merrier. This is my first time seeing a wedding ceremony with 2 times of kenduri, my first time seeing kompang squad singing songs, my first time seeing a very very long akad nikah. I don't know if other states are doing like Johore, but I never see it at Kelantan. Kelantan compare to Johore is very much simpler, and boring though, but Johore is way too decoratic and havoc, I mean on how they handle their ceremony. Eh, did I mention earlier that this is also my first time seeing people doing silat during wedding? Well, at the wedding, I think the whole village wants to perform their skills. From kids to old persons, everybody wants to demonstrate their silat skills.
Then after coming back to Shah Alam I got fever and flu. Flu looks like won't go away anytime sooner. Sigh.
