Rene's Engaged..

In goes the ring... and she's taken..

Bride-to-be Masyarene with friends after the engagement ceremony.

Ali's Angels... unlike the real thing, we are no matchsticks (with the exception of the one in the middle, who has no meat to boast of. Izah, don't kill me, ok!) From left: Ayahcik Ali, his son (and our cousin) Sazali, my sisters Zaridah and Hanizah, and yours truly.

Pak Abu kekenyangan lepas berkenduri nasi minyak.

From left: My cousins Jefri and Sazali, my nephews Atari and Aizuddin (Zack), and my grandnephew Qadri (Zack's son).

Hantaran goes traditional - I have forgotten what this agar-agar sweetmeat is called.

Mini cakes, today's hantaran trend. We cut the cake upon getting home; it's a sinfully rich chocolate cake covered with thick icing. I got migraine just by looking at it..

Masyarene is the third daughter of my sister Zahana and her husband Mohd Som (whom we call Atan). The elder two are married, with a child each, and now it's Rene's turn.

Barring unforseen circumstances, Rene and her beau Syed Atief will wed in March next year, Insyaallah.

Aunty Puteri,
Beleda kering tuh! We found a stall at the Bukit Gantang R&R a few months back. I like your description of the mini cake - can get migraine just by looking at it. I have three fiances but have had no ceremony like this. For the fourth one I'll insist.
Anyway, congratulations to Rene. Awak cantiklah... purrr....meow!

Dok ingat cakap tranung doh ke!!!
"beleda kering/bronok/asam gupal/lompak tikam/buah gomok/keppal/kayu keramat atau kudus/lok lik/paung ssambal". to name a few of tranung's kueh but beleda kering masuk majlis kerana dia comel dan sesuai sebagai hantaran as AG said colourful (tapi belum tentu sedap, manis letteng)

Tahniah to the future bride and groom. Kak Puteri, is your nephew really called Atari as in the video game? By the way Pak Abu still looked lapar lah LOL.
