Last Saturday

I attended a friend’s wedding at Shah Alam last Saturday. Since I knew both the bride and the groom, I decided to go though I never know how to go to Shah Alam. This cute little bride has written a ‘how to’ for getting there when she gave me the invitation card. The reception was from 12:00 - 4:00pm. I budgeted that I would arrive there around 1:30PM. Requested a friend to accompany me, we set out for LRT around 12:00 noon.

Unexpectedly, the train halted suddenly somewhere near nowhere of Wangsa Maju station. After about half an hour, it started moving at a speed of a tortoise with sudden breaks whenever it wanted and taking rest about 5 minutes at each station. I was just worried that the food is going to finish. (not kidding  ) Luckily, we arrived at the reception around 3:00PM, greeted the bride and the groom then rushed for food.
Heartiest congratulations to Naufal and Hasnah!! Tahniah kepada Naufal dan Hasnah, semoga berkekalan hingga ke akhir hayat.

This is my first time ever attending a (pure) Malaysian wedding. But couldn't able to get a full picture of Malay customs since i get there quite late. Met a few friends, chit chatted, observed the people around, time came to go back. We took a cab to the Shah Alam KTM station. Then, another problem started here. After the driver drove for a few minutes, he started saying that he didn’t know the way since he drove a passenger from KL to Shah Alam. The driver was hoping that I would tell him how to go. How am I supposed to know? Just imagine how I get back to KL with my poor Bahasa Melayu with his hard to understand BM.
found = foundTheWay();
}while(found != ‘y’);
After going through that loop for about 5 times, he got exhausted. Then he started asking people the way to KL Central. The driver offered to send us to KL Central Station by RM20. We agreed for RM 17 after bargaining. With worries on all the way back, we get back to KL finally. Huhuuuuuuuuuuuuu…… What an exciting day! rolleyes

Hanif>> lama tak jumpa.. it's so nice of u dropping a comment.
yeah, at first i also hv the same thought that the driver was trying to cheat me. But after a while i realize that he really don't know the way. I'm pretty sure the driver hv wasted lots of fuel than the RM 17 that he got from me. Imagine I was on that taxi for about an hour. I got to see the whole Shah Alam area anyway :D
