(dah lama nak edit entry ni, tapi tak terlaksana, dan hampit terlupa.. today, i try my best...tu pon sebab abg fadhlah dah hint kat entry dia.. heheh..)
Hello People.. Recently I went for a program in my kampung. It was the christening of baby.. hari menamakan budak.. ni function kat umah muslim.. (i can't find the term in english.. baby naming day???! sorry).
I have never seen many activities done here back in Penang. I am not sure if you guys were exposed with such activties.
Firstly, the imam said some prayers- they read Yasin and some selawat and Tahlil.. Later on, i saw a long stick-looking-weighing-scale-like cradle (or whatever you guys will call it) used to put the baby on one side of it and the other side was occupied with rice(not the cooked ones) and the imam would put the rice as much as the weight of the baby.
After that,the rice was cooked and given to the villagers.. mcm sedekah la.. these pictures will tell you what happened la ok..
(this is the picture of the ustad/imam saying prayers on the baby and balancing the baby to the rice..)
(this is the baby's grandfather measuring the rice)
(the imam is trimming the baby's hair..the baby's mum is in green baju kurung..the other pretty girls are the villagers.. comey gak dirog)
(this is something new for me.. dirog gunting rambut bapak baby tu jugak..)
(after that, mak baby pon kena gunting gak rambut dia..hehe.. funny gak..)
(this is the baby's house.. hehe..)
ok friends.. it has taken all day to upload pictures and update this blog of mine which was kept idle a few days (weeks perhaps!).. harap abg fadhlah puas hati..
take care.. doa from me to all of you..
