Date: 12 December 2009
Venue: Kg Sumbing, Penampang
Back in early December 2009, I attended the engagement ceremony between Sharon (who is my luvable cuzzie) and Awad. It was held at Sharon's house and is attended by all relatives near and far. The ceremony is conducted in the traditional way by the usage of the 'daun kirai' that is used by the older generations to roll and smoke their tobaccos. The usage of the 'daun kirai' is by way of putting on the table the agreements in terms of costs and dowry for the girl's hand in marriage. Upon agreement, by representatives from the boy and girl's side, it could be said that they are now engaged. Don't you just love traditional takes on stuffs like engagements and marriages? Here are some photos that I've taken on that day.
Btw, A Happy New Year 2010 to all readers of this blog. May the new year brings you many happiness and prosperity in all your endeavours this year.
