Hantaran Tunang Ciah

Ciah is my sister-in-law. She recently got engaged. The ceremony was simple and traditional. Ciah does not like exaggeration in anything, she’s just a simple minded lady, hence her event and hantaran was so very simple.

Her hantaran was done by Kak Nani of De Casa Flora. Khidmat Kak Nani ni memang digunakan sejak abang yang pertama lagi, and never change sampaila ke Ciah ni (the only girl and the last one to get married).

Lets look at her hantaran. Gubahan was done by Kak Nani, while the bekas par anak par was my mom’s (pinjam), simply because Ciah wants it raw like that, no kain-kain, no lapik no nothing, which I find very authentic.  Every week she would shine the anak par herself (excited nak kasi kilat). She wanted peonies for her hantaran and succulent-like-leaves to go with it. Bunga Melur was to create some scent to the hantaran.

The cake. The cake was S-E-D-A-P!… it was baked by my biras’s brother (Chef Faris – used to be the dessert chef in KL Convention Centre)…it’s a combination of sweet, sour and lemon-y kinda cake. We all loved it!

The carnation installation. This was for the background of her sarung cincin area. It was done by Ciah herself. She found the inspiration from the internet of course, and wanted to make it a reality. I was already 9 months pregnant masa tu so I tolong sikit-sikit je…

The DIY so called ‘pelamin’. No no Ciah didn’t want any pelamin what so ever…..she just wanted a simple yet sweet seating area to sarung cincin. So, she used the background of her mom’s room (with mini waterfall and some greens), did the carnation installation, polished the floors and cleaned up the wooden chair and walla!



Selamat bertunang Ciah and Khairi!
