Wedding Doorgift. Really?
Yep, yep. It’s a tradition for well, I’m not sure about Indians, but for Chinese and Malays, yes they give doorgift to guest who come to the wedding. I’m not sure whether we Kadazandusun do it cuz I remember attending two weddings (one of it was my aunt’s), and no, no doorgift received. Hahah! xD But if the wedding reception are held in a hotel, yea I’m sure every guest will get something. I’ve seen chopsticks, fans, cakes and chocolates in a box as a doorgift for weddings held in the hotel. As for Malays, I’m not sure if people still give ‘bunga telur’ (simply boiled egg with some decorations) nowadays. Maybe in kampung (village) where they organize everything by themselves, still? No idea! But I do know that nowadays anything can be a doorgift! For instance, my other sister ordered mini cheese tarts from her friends. My mum… Chocolates, maybe? That is from our family side. The groom side? IDK But I See guests went back with their hand fulls of doorgifts!
As for my sister’s wedding reception, mum suggested making cupcakes (again!). There’s No way I could bring my pastry equipments from Sabah to Malacca so I crossed my fingers and hope there’s some shops that sells everything I need. Jajaja..! Well after few days of searching I finally found it, not far from Ayer Keroh where I’m staying. Thanks to my beloved bf who drove me around to look for it. After I got everything I needed, I started making the cupcakes two days before the wedding. Well I have to. And I’ve already checked everything. Ngahhh! And these are pictures of them in the making. Well I didn’t snap everything step by step cuz it’s tiring to wash my hand everytime I hold my phone.
Ohhh it was a nightmare cutting the round stickers! Why? Budget, budget!
