Malay Wedding

Our group has had some good luck on this trip, and we’ve seen and done so many things we never expected to be able to see and do!  Getting invited to a Malay Wedding was a very special cultural experience.

Besides the wonderful wedding food, which featured traditional items such as nasi minyak (special tasty rice) and beef rendang (tender beef slowly simmered in coconut curry), we were entranced by the sound of the traditional gamelan music.

Here we are with the bride and groom, whose mother is a professor at UTM and a colleague of our student teaching supervisor.

And at our table, we met two other UTM colleagues, Dr. Ary and Dr. Shadiya.  It was a great day all around!
