Well, work is still ongoing....wonder whether can be ready before Ramadhan......But anyway, our durian trees have started to bear fruits....and so far a few of the riped ones have started to drop....and....yours truly have also eaten some of its delicious yummmmy...... Well, if dear hubby did not cut the thorny fruit open....yours truly here will not get to eat the 'golden' flesh.....BECAUSE...yours truly here does not know how to slice open the durians....BUT luckily, my son-in-law could do that too....hehehehe.....

So, if hubby not around, can ask my son-in-law to do it for me....

(makan time.....with our relatives from Kuala Ketil, Kedah)

(hubby chatting with our nephew, Hj Ayob from Kuala Ketil)

(relatives from Kuala Ketil were an hour late, but we were honoured that they came...)

(me with my 'besan' (daughter's mother-in-law) with her youngest daughter)

Our entourage left Hotel Regency in Alor Star, Saturday May 12 at 12.30pm for our journey to the groom's house in Naka.  Our relatives from Kuala Ketil were to join us once we reached the mosque in Naka town.  Our convoy of seven cars with thirty passengers arrived at the mosque around 1pm.  

Since our relatives from Kuala Ketil were delayed (there were twenty of them), our entourage proceeded to the groom's residence about five minutes drive from the mosque.  We were welcomed by his parents and relatives.  We were thrilled watching a silat performance to the beat of the traditional gamelan.  The groom's father, Encik Khalid, is a silat guru.

My daughter was wearing the traditional Minangkabau outfit complete with the sanggul lintang.  I told her that was what I wore when I got married thirty years ago.....But, the sanggul lintang was a lot heavier....hehehe... 

When it was time to leave, I had to hold back my tears....because, I will be returning home without my daughter. She and her busband will be spending a few days with her in-laws before leaving for Australia for her honeymoon with her husband.  Kak Long, ummi loves you so much.
