It’s our honour to be invited to Aizuddin and Norazni’s wedding party, and we are very thankful to them for accepting Miya’s interview even after a long day of celebration. This is Miya’s first time attending a Malay wedding, and she is very excited to wear her green baju kurung, the traditional Malay costume.
“Although baju kurung is the generic name of the attire for both males and females, in Malaysia the female dress is referred to as baju kurung while the male dress is referred to as baju melayu.” For the females, “A baju kurung is a loose-fitting full length dress, consisting of a skirt and a blouse. The skirt is made from a long cloth with foldings on one side; the blouse is collarless, has long sleeves, and extends to between the hips and knees. It is sometimes made of silk, imported from Japan, South Korea, China, Taiwan, Turkey or India, or from the Malaysian states of Terengganu or Kelantan. The modern baju kurung commonly uses lively colours and geometric patterns.” - quoted from Wikipedia1
This wedding invitation opportunity allows Miya to experience the grand and festive Malay wedding culture, and she is very impressed by the beautiful decorations and magnificent ‘pelamin’, the centrepiece bridal couch that looks like a royal throne. The interview is held on the pelamin, and Miya has a great and fun time interviewing Aizuddin and Norazni. So here’s Episode 3: Miya Interviews Muhammad Aizuddin and Siti Norazni, the wedding couple!
Coming up next, Episode 4: Miya Interviews an Accountant!
