Its Anita’s day !
We went there on time, so we didn’t miss anything. I met so many friends there, mostly Himasurya member (A group of Surabaya Student in STAN). After some chit-chat we gather in front of Anita’s house to watch the Ijab Kabul. Hwaaah, my friend is now a wife !










Now….its time for cultural ceremony. You know how much Im into this kind of thing, so without any question I really really enjoyed it.


































Actually, the ceremony is quite the same as the one in my home town. There’s pecah telor, sungkeman and feeding each other. The difference between Javanese and Sundanese if I could say are..

  • In Javenese groom greeted by family and among tamu, in Sundanese by family and merak dance.
  • In Javanese, the bride walk around the groom several time and they throw a flower to each other.
  • In Javanese, only the brides parents who feed the newly wed. In sundanese, both parents.
  • In Javanese, the bride parents ook the newly wed by a kain.
  • In Sundanese we have ngeyeuk seureuh ceremony, sex education to tease the newly wed. This is the mayor different. I think Javanese wedding ceremony tent to more sad and holy because there’s no jokes in it. Sundanese had the cheerful side beside of the holy and sad side.







After that, its time for some meals and chit-chat. Since its was jumat, after that we’re rush to the nearest mosque so the boys could do Jumah pray.








The reception would be held the next day. But its not a mistake to took some picture with the newly wed right? Or even with…the soon to be newly wed? Hahaha








Ah, Anita and Mas Wisnu….Happy wedding !
I wish nothing but Sakinah Mawaddah and Warahmah. Amiiiiin :)
