FOR DAYS, IT WAS RUMOURED THE SPECTACULAR WEDDING BETWEEN FASHION DESIGNER JOVIAN MANDAGIE AND NINA SABRINA DATUK SERI ISMAIL SABRI WOULD BE THE WEDDING OF THE YEAR. FOR ONCE, THE RUMOURS WERE CORRECT! 

THE DECORATION WAS AWESOMELY SPECTACULAR AND JAW-DROPPING! THE FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS ALONE MUST HAVE COST A FEW HUNDRED THOUSAND RINGGIT AND FLORIST RAZAK OF FLORA ETC MUST BE LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK.


 THE BRIDAL COUPLE OF THE YEAR! JOVIAN MANDAGIE AND NINA SABRINA DATUK SERI ISMAIL SABRI IN THEIR RESPLENDENT COSTUMES
 THE BLESSED BRIDAL COUPLE BEING INTRODUCED TO HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS THE SULTAN OF PAHANG DYMM SULTAN AHMAD SHAH
THE BRIDE AND GROOM ENROUTE TO THE STAGE AS 'RAJA SEHARI' OR 'KING AND QUEEN FOR A DAY'.


The decor and setting were beyond belief and I can vouch on my ancestors' souls the orchids, roses and lillies must have depleted several flower farms and nurseries. Even the ceiling in the centre was laden with hanging flowers. Every other table had a floral arrangement around 1 metre high and even featured green apples, an auspicious fruit denoting future success is about to ripen.

There was a full fledged Indonesian orchestra flown in from Bali to play traditional Balinese classical music. The musicians, clad in Balinese costumes with a red flower tucked neatly behind the ear, gave a sterling performance and impressed the guests in the foyer.

Even more stunning were the full grown chery blossom trees in full bloom! Well, they looked real but these were made in Malaysian and not dug from the ground and flown into KLIA from Japan.

Stools and chairs allowed early guests to sit, chat and mingle before they took their seats inside the magnificently decorated ballroom.

Such wastage when there are so many starving children especially in the Muslim world who are mainly helped by Westerners. Allah would condone this.

Look at the positive side of the millions spent. Economy was expanded. Several individuals could have collected huge fees and in some cases could be in millions.

Whether paid from public funds or private funds the expenditure always acts as economic stimulus that benefits the nations though more to some.

Such weddings have entertainment and thus commercial value. This wedding like some past others are sponsored by TV and other media who may have paid millions in cash or kind to have exclusive rights to show this entertainment function.

Cash supersedes religious values in the function of marriages which may more for commercial value.


or sponsorships as it has commercial value

Basically corruption. I think the father-in-law ( bride's side) was facing bankruptcy in 2003...courts documents....but since becoming Minister ( Pekan connection) money arrived from cronies for favors-lah...in Malaysia

You are so funny! The way you word your sentences makes me laugh! I love your blog you're the best.

It's a wedding, a hopeful once in a lifetime event. And you people here are with your typical chinese condemning attitude just because the couple doesnt have a pair of slit eyes, flat faces and stained yellow skin as you do. Reduce to ashes, chinamen.

This is a wedding, a grand wedding for those celebrities who can afford and make it a remembrance once a lifetime event. There are also many starving chinese in the Asian world, but why are the corruption of the chinks through ranking bullying the lower chinks doesn't affect your judgement? I wonder how far does your brain go.

AlleviatE said...

You're one mature to say such a thing. The only reason I can see from your condemning judgement is that you're a chinese with an ugly stained yellow heart. Please elevate yourself from being the uncivilised chink you are. A chink in the armor, acting all high and mighty.

You think this.. you think that.. and all you wanna be is that you're always right huh. Well, here's what I think Chan, I think you're a slit eyed chink who doesn't know your place!
