2nd cousins aka 2 pupu

We are of same age with me and As being the oldest @59 and the others are also in their 50's ... Today we get to meet again and I managed to snap group pictures after over 30 yrs.I went to one of 2nd cousins son's wedding at Tampines.


I was early reaching around 12 plus - my bro Fandi came to fetch me and its good as we don't have to Q to get our food as we know now a days its buffet style.The food were delicious I had bryani with beef,ayam merah,udang black pepper,dalca and pacri nenas....besides these there are also gado2,beehoon goreng.


My sis Lina and BIL Yazid were there b4 us and as usual we get to meet our relatives during these functions .... bersalam2an.




Me with 3 0f 5 siblings .... Zakiah,Hasnah,me and Farida .... Azizah (mak pengantin) busy layan tetamu and youngest sis Nita no where to be seen maybe busy too.Do you know the last time I saw Zakiah was more than 30 yrs ago ... we seldom meet except at functions like this.The rest I met them on and off and more when my dad was in hospital and during his kebumian.We went to the same secondary school 2nd best girls school at that time after Raffles Girls .... we got our alma mater @ Crescent Girls School.


After that we start working and the girls got married and left the nest ... occassionally we do meet at weddings but not Zakiah ..... I am really glad we did finally today.


As and me we are both 59 and she has 2 children in their 30's ....... do you notice I am wearing their theme colour .... hahaha .... jingga/orange.



Ida has 3 daughters and one of them is her carbon copy .......

ahhhh ..... I didn't get to take picture with Zakiah alone I think she was busy after that group photo as these girls are incharge of receiving guests.



The gift ( bunga telur) .... now it comes in all kinds of shape ......



6 pkts of Dilma tea ...yeah my favourite fruitie tea .... if I know its tea would ask for extra .... hahaha ..... shameless ah?
