Like always, people here in Malaysia plan their wedding reception so that it will fall during school holidays.

Now that school holidays is coming very soon, and so is wedding invitations.

Last Saturday, that was on 22 May, my wife and I attended two wedding receptions in Kuantan.

First was Dato' Ghani's daughter's wedding reception in Permatang Badak. The Sultanah and Tengku Mahkota of Pahang were the royal guests. I met three fellow sdaras.

Dato' Ghani, the former SS Pahang, was the doyen of Sdaras. I will always make it a point to attend his functions.

Just as we left Dato' Ghani's function, menacing dark rain clouds were up there in Kuantan sky.

We rushed to the other wedding reception in Taman Tas. It was raining hevaily when we arrived. I was flabbergasted when I heard our names were mentioned by the MC as soon as we made it into the tent.

It was Khairudin. His strong voice was recognizable from afar.

On 5 June I have already received ten wedding invitation cards, not to mention my brother-in-laws wedding reception!

Cannot imagine how I can attend all invitations!

This is the season that we should not forget what goes into our mouth, i.e. take great care to estimate right dosage or calories counts.. My late primary school teacher( my favorite teacher) had a stroke after attending 4 kenduries on one fateful day.. and in all 4 kenduries offered his favorite foods.. sambal belacan, ikan kering etc.
The season of "Doh nok wat guane?"
