I’m currently in my village attending a cousin’s wedding. It is a Malay tradition that all close-family members must come down and help out. I obliged. 🙂

This was during the girl’s side of kenduri. Yeah, can’t let go of my hp. 😛
I was assigned to cook the beef.  There I was standing there stirring the gulai kawah and came this Auntie- I-don’t-know-who trying to converse with me. To be honest, this is the first time ever I was asked about marriage. Literally in front of my face!

No, this is not the lungs of a smoker. It is the cow’s lungs, part of the gulai kawah
The scenario:

Auntie- I-don’t-know-who : So, what are you doing now? Working already?
Me: Yes Auntie. (While stirring the gulai kawah)
Auntie- I-don’t-know-who  : ohh..good2. What do you do? where is that?
Me: I am a writer for a travel magazine in Old Klang Road, KL.
Auntie- I-don’t-know-who : wahh…very young. Good for you.
Auntie- I-don’t-know-who : So, when are you getting married? Any candidate yet? 
Me: erk…nooo.. am still young , I want to travel and yada2 ( I was basically rambling)

there were other women cutting cucumber and whatnot there too.

Woman 1: ohh no candidate yet. How about your daughter? (she was asking this to Auntie- I-don’t-know-who)
Woman 2: Aha, ya.. your daughter has no one yet right? 
Auntie-I-don’t-know-who: Grinning and grinning and smiling. 
Woman 3: hahh kak, Sofea is suitable right? 

Me : Auntie, I need to check on my gulai kawah.

That was probably the funniest conversation I’ve ever encountered. Women please, I still play with toys. Do you think am ready to get married?

It’s funny when you are older people start asking about you getting married and all. Hello, why would I want to get married? I still have lots of traveling to do and marriage is just gonna a big NO NO.

Not that I’m saying marriage is bad, it’s matter of preference I guess. Well, get married all you want but for me, naaa no thanks. 😛

So, have you encountered any of these silly situations? 

Till then, keep on traveling peeps! 😀

  2. it’s completely normal for people to ask you when you’re getting married at a marriage ceremony. I’ve been asked twice; once when i was 18 and last year since both of siblings are married. hence, i can imagine the things that you’ve been through ;p
