The Story of “Dawn & Syed Wedding”

Assalamualaikum all. I don’t know why but I’ve become more and more lazy…malasnya nak update blog….even though I got a lot of postings need to be published. Here’s one job not to be missed..Syed & Dawn’s wedding. A love story 17 years in the making.

Being a Syed, of arabic descent, Syed Zalihafe is clad in a jubah & headgear. The Heng Tai’s are supposed to be Terrorist…LOL. Note the crudely made bomb 🙂

They were tortured with several tasks..none harder than dancing to the Wonder Girls’ Nobody song.

After a brief tea ceremony, they all move to the nearby mosque for the Akad Nikah.

Half of the people inside the mosque is non-muslim. Friends and family of Dawn.

Funny incidents happen during the Akad Nikah, but that’s a story I’m not telling 😛

After the Nikah, we setup our mini studio at Dewan Komuniti Bukit Damansara for the Wedding Dinner. It’s a Movie themed wedding so everybody had to wear costume. You can count with your hands how many people wear baju melayu…hahaha…I like it everybody was so sporting and some even rented costumes for the wedding dinner.
