Grand Jawa Wedding (Lots and Lots of Foods)

My uncle just had a wedding today. However, being a Melayu Jawa in Meru,Klang and having a wedding celebration is not easy.. mind you, if you know any Malaysian Jawa friends they can vouch for me. They had like 3 days 3 nights of celebration if you are from the bride's side and 2 days 2 nights celebration if you're from the groom's side. It will involve a lot of people, a lot of food, a lot of gossiping, a lot of music, a lot of talks and everything is done on a big scale. Just imagine the havoc it wreaks to prepare a sumptuous and delicious for 2 days or 3 days buffet breakfast,lunch,dinner and supper for the 2000 people attending the wedding!
And 500 peoples attending the weddings are surely your cousins,your grandparents,your uncles,your aunts,nieces and nephews,their parents' parents,long lost relative,distant cousins and every other relatives that you never knew but someway somehow are related to you.Those 500 would be the people who will be helping with the preparation of the food, cooking the food,attending to the food and to wash the dishes. mind you ,there were a lots of washing and cleaning to be done. This tradition is called "rewang" meaning to visit and give help for all the things that need to be done for the wedding.
But all in all, although it is a tiring day, we had fun, catching up, gossiping and stuffing ourselves with lots of delicious foods ^_^V
