engagement: present

1 Oct


i almost forgot to record the food brought by -f-‘s family. they’re cookies, cake and all kind of fruits. the cookies are lebaran cookies like nastar, kastengel and a few others.

pais kocia pyramid shape traditional cake wrapped in banana leaves is placed inside a dimsum bamboo basket. it’s my first time to taste the cake. they said it’s from their homeland. the name is pais koci.

the one i like the most is the tin jars they use to store rengginang and opak. it’s like kerupuk tin but smaller size. very unique.


engagement: meal

there were total 11 people attending the engagement day from both side of family. small number compare to typical indonesian family. it was very fine. my mom was a bit nervous and stress, kept screaming the food is not enough.

it was in the afternoon, between lunch and dinner. we bought sate pancoran and bakmi gm (including the famous pangsit goreng). the food was delicious, but it was not warm enough.


engagement: fresh flower

got sunflower for the engagement day. bought in kemang rp 35.000 for 10. i think the flower really made the room. and it’s the flower of wedding’s theme.

we bought 2 trays with various kue basah beautifully place on them.

my mom is so happy because she has the opportunity to use her old zwibelmuster collection. it’s so old that it’s still written made in czechoslovakia, the country you can’t find on today’s world map anymore.

we just realized we don’t have small bowls! maybe it will be combine will plain white bowl that we have.
