A bunga telur is a decorative container for eggs meant to be given away as gifts to guests in a Malay wedding.
When mum brought home a huge box of bunga telur and an ornate copper display stand, I started to have my mini panic attacks. Cartcart and I haven’t even planned our wedding yet and already mum has been talking and advising me about our future wedding. It makes me wonder who was more excited – Me or her?
She’s been giving me advice like :
- To set the date in the registrar of marriages at least 6 months in advance.
- To have a double ceremony.
- Drinking jamu to make me more fertile.
And the more she talked, the more I am in realisation that there are so much preparations to do! Not to mention the costs of the ceremony like, catering, invitations, dowry et al. And the more I think about it, the more I am starting to feel overwhelmed.
Why do weddings have to be so much work?
