On Saturday, the 23rd of May, there was a wedding reception at Pakcik Halim's house. They had a gotong-royong since Friday. On Friday night, I went there to see what could I do. Apparently, all the onions and the chillies had safely been cut and sliced...hehehe. The ladies were only putting in eggs into the purple cases, so I just watched! Hehehe, well, there were too many people there already, okay?!! Instead, I helped Mimi to clean up.
Early the next morning, I went there to help them prepare all the vegetables for dalca and also acar. Soon, the other ladies joined in, alhamdulillah. I gave two peelers away to Mimi and also makcik (Noni's mother). Some of us helped Mimi and Fiza prepared the special dishes for the bride and groom. Since I have neither the skill nor the inclination to do that, I helped the others with cleaning up, again! Hehehe
By 11 a.m, everything was nearly ready for guests and I took my leave. I rested for awhile at home and around 12 p.m, brought the kids to eat at the kenduri. After eating, I went home...hehehe. I didn't wait around to gossip or chat because I hardly know the neighbours and I was quite tired and I desperately needed a nap...hehehe
