UTOPIA: Wedding Invitations

Wedding Invitations

Nowadays, i used to get quite a number of wedding invitations, mostly from relatives, colleagues and for some instances, former classmates (some do wed early, u noe!). It is at its peak especially during the end of the year when kids are on school holidays.
If you (or your relatives) are the typical chinese, mostly you'l get the red or pink cards...with fragrance smell and a chinese character which shows 'happiness' (or perhaps something synonym).
Meanwhile, if the banquet is hosted by the typical malaysians, mostly you will never escape the delay of the banquet. Although it is stated as 7pm sharp in the invitation card, i can assure you that 99.9% (more accurate than DNA test) it will start at 8pm or later.
Ever wonder the reason?
This is Malaysian 'style' (not Malaysian IDOL!).
When i was a kid, i used to be impatient by kept asking mum when will the banquet start...(*and cursing the host for taking so long to get ready!) until recently, when i was helping out at one of my cousin's wedding, i finally found out the truth...
Well, in her case, both of the families prefered to start the banquet once all the invitees arrived, not even a single one is missed. So, if you are one of the invitees, better be 'smart' and dun be late. If you can't make it, it's always a courtesy to inform the host rather than letting them (and all the invitees) waiting just for you ;-)

You are right! Malaysian Style: Biar lambat asalkan sampai.

as for msians, most of them usually will attend so no need to inform the host. but when they attend, they will purposely come in very late so that ppl knew that they are important person...hehehe

the best is when they come in same time as food presentation. then those ppl will say "see, we are on time"

johnny ong: well, perhaps it's a different case for me...i feel embarassed if i m late..coz people will be looking at me and tinking tht i delayed the dinner.
