This is by far the GRANDESTEST (if there's such word - and I was just kidding there I know there isn't such word -_-" ) Malay wedding ever
I thought it was beautiful and sweet, although I'm more of a simple wedding kind of person ( I wonder whether that'll happen since I'm the first-born...and a GIRL summore pft). Anyways, back to the story. This is the montage for the wedding of the late SM Nasimudin's ( founder of NAZA group) daughter, Nur Nadia SM Nasimudin.
I guess that when you have the money, you can spend on anything you wish for.
The main reason I wrote today, even though I had other things in queue, was when I read people's comments everywhere about the wedding. I'm sorry, I don't mean to sound arrogant but I feel that the typical Malay mindset has to stop. So what if she wants to spend on her wedding like that? She DOES have the money. Some of you believe that it's a waste of money, can be donated to all sorts of charity. From how I see it:
1. It's HER and HER FAMILY's money. Ada ke kau tak makan sebab dia tak bagi kau duit? Or did she owe you anything in monetary terms?
2. They earned the money, they have the RIGHT to spend it in however they life. They are in no way ever obligated to YOU.
3. Weddings are usually once in a lifetime (maybe), so what if she wants to spend on her wedding? I'd want my wedding to be somewhat perfect too! You know it's not an everyday affair.
4. If you think she should have donated the money to charity organizations, what makes you think she and her family did not? How would you know for sure?
5. So what now? She and her family work for the money and earned it, then donate it to people who just wait for the money to drop from the sky? cmon now, please be sensible. Yes, charity is charity, but only for those who isn't capable of working (sick people, OKUs, old people, kids).
6. Throwing the flower is just a tradition, it has nothing to do with Christianity. It's just like how Malay people does that 'Tepung Tawar'. Get over it!
"The practice of the bride tossing her bouquet before she leaves on her wedding trip is said to have started in the 14th century, when getting a piece of the bride's clothing was considered good luck. In those days, the bride was treated poorly. Guests would grab at her wedding dress in order to tear off pieces of it. Although brides continued to believe they would not be wearing their wedding gowns again, they objected to its wanton destruction. Instead of allowing guests to tear at their gowns, brides found an alternative and instead, started to throw personal items, such as the garter, to the guests. Today, the groom removes and tosses the garter, while the bride tosses her bouquet. The unmarried man who catches the garter is asked to put it on the leg of the unmarried woman who catches the bouquet. It is said that they will be the next to marry (not necessarily each other)."
7. Lastly, kau jealous apahal? HAHAHAHAHHA
Sorry ah, but humans just have something to say about everyone ah? Takkan pernah puas hati dengan one another. Peace out!
