Hey, child, where are you going? There’s a wedding reception on! Don’t miss it, it’s at Hasan Abang’s place, 400B. You can’t miss it. Down the lane, make a right, and keep going….

Coconut palm fronds as decoration
…until you reach the coconut-frond archway over the driveway!

Guests conversing
Step inside and jaw a while with the neighbors.

Guests at the reception
Everyone’s just getting caught up, making small talk…

Waiting for the meal
… while they wait for the food to be served.

Kompang Boys 2
In the meantime, there’s plenty of entertainment…

Kompang Boys
… from the boys playing kompang and singing nasheed.

Recting Mawlid Barzanji
The men inside recite Mawlid Barzanji…

Kompang boys taking a break
… when the kompang boys are ready to take a break.

Elderly man at wedding
You can lean back and relax after you’ve had your meal…

The Bride
… and may even catch a glimpse of the bride! Leaving so soon? All right, salam alaykum until next time.
