In those days in Penang, it was customary in Chinese weddings for the bride’s entourage to accompany the bride to the groom’s house for the second half of the ceremonies, and the traditional nonya kueh reception. Various kinds of local delicacies such as the nine-layer kueh lapis, pulut inti, bingka, etc, would be served. Each kueh type was cut into a parallelogram shape and arranged in a star pattern on a plate. Wonder if the practice is still observed.
Oh yes, the must-have F & N Red Lion fizzy drinks too.
It was a bit hard to accurately estimate the number of guests who would turn up, and if there was enough kueh to go round. My sweetheart asked me, and I said, “Que Sera Sera, whatever will be will be”.
