The Newly Weds: Hadi and Nadzirah

Don’t you love joyous occasions and happy celebrations? Birthdays and anniversaries and weddings are reasons to celebrate. As families and friends, we should gather together in celebration on these occasions.

On the 15th and 16th of July 2016 it was one such joyous occasion — the marriage solemnization and wedding reception of Hadi and Nadzirah.

Theirs’ was a Muslim ceremony of exchanging vows at the mosque followed by a Malay wedding reception.

The “pelamin” of silver, gold and cream was the throne of the bride and groom.

I continue my story telling in a pictorial of the handsome groom (my nephew) and his lovely bride.

May their love for each other continue to grow each day as husband and wife. And may God bless them always.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
