Yesterday 19th April was a Special Day for my youngest daughter Noormy.
It was her 'Majlis Merisik Day' :)
'Merisik' also means 'Bertekul' in Malay. It's a day when a boy send his parents or representatives or relative to a girl's house to ask if she would be his future fiancee and wife to be in life. A gold ring and some token of money will be given as soon as the girl agrees and a date for an engagement ceremony (Majlis Pertunangan) will be fixed.
That's what happened yesterday evening and even though it was a very small meeting between us, Mak isah was quite busy entertaining the guests then.
To my darling Noormy, Congrats & I love you.
Sharing these pictures of the simple ceremony to you dear friends :)

Love you all,
