Today i'll tell you a story about my family.
I come from a family of mixed lineage. My father's side is chinese and my mum's is malay. So naturally i have uncles and aunties and cousins of colourful backgrounds.
I have an uncle, and his family is christian. Today we had dinner together and
this dinner inspired me to write this blogpost. You see, in our country there's not a lot of interaction between people of different cultures, religions, etc. even if we see each other everyday. Yes, you talk to the ahsoi if you go to her shop, you see the mamak and have his roti canai everyday, but its all 'professional interaction', and there's not much 'genuine interaction', getting to know the person, knowing what his hopes and fears are, caring about what he feels about, etc (maybe there is a lot of interaction, it is only me who's been living in a bubble huhu)

هُوَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ لَكُمْ مَا فِي الْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا ثُمَّ اسْتَوَى إِلَى السَّمَاءِ فَسَوَّاهُنَّ سَبْعَ سَمَاوَاتٍ وَهُوَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ
He it is Who created for you all that is on earth. Then He Istawâ (rose over) towards the heaven and made them seven heavens and He is the All-Knower of everything. (2:29)

'Tis the season. Lots of people around my age are getting married. assuming you know my age, which is almost as anonymous as my identity (aha!)
If it was up to me, i'd be like
merisik = where the family of typically the guy goes to the family of the girl to get to know her and her family
bertunang = engagement
hantaran = presents given by each party to the other party on wedding day
kenduri = feast/banquet
