This is the last part of my wedding story, hehe. Hope you won't get bored reading it. This post will tell you what happen on my big day (13th March 2011, Sunday).
Even the level of the water in our area back to normal, but the area which the imam lives was still in flood. It was almost 8.00 a.m, so I called hubby and asked them to not come so early (they were supposed to arrived at 10). My mom who went out as early as 4.00a.m to take the meat that she had ordered back with an empty hand. There wasn't any meat on the menu because of the flood last night. Only six kind of food? Oh well, I guess it more than enough..uhuk uhuk.
The funny thing is, one of my aunt came early in the morning just to make sure whether the wedding ceremony will be continue as had been planned or not, haha.
The Akad Nikah (Marriage Contract) ceremony went well. Akad Nikah is a ceremony where the groom sign the marriage contract and agrees to provide the bride with a 'mas khawin'. It is a symbol to show that the men is willing and are prepared to build a family with the lady he chose to get married to. The contract signing is done before a religious official.
After the 'Bersanding Ceremony' (where the bride and bridegroom sitting together on the bridal couch also known as pelamin) we attend a celebratory feast called the 'Makan Beradab' (formal meal). The scary moment was where we were asked to dance 'Pinakang Dance' a traditional Dusun Kimaragang dance. Uhuk-uhuk, I really don't know that dance.
After that dance, the cake cutting ceremony took place followed by singing session by certain lucky people (special request from me) haha. That include my dad and my friends (Hamidah, Jessika and Bani). They were also asked to dance the Pokiring dance by one of my aunt who know them.
My friends performed the Pokiring dance
With one of my best friend, Rynnie.
My lovely siblings, thanks for the hard work (^.^)
The singing and dance session finished at 11.00 p.m, phew, so tired but I am so happy because everything went well as planned.
