Attending Kamini's Indian Wedding Dinner

The Invitation 
A neighbour's eldest daughter got married the other day and we were invited to attend her wedding dinner at the HGH Convention Centre, Sentul, Kuala Lumpur.



She is Chindian, a child of mixed marriage parents. Her father is  Indian, Mr V. Thamal Selvan and her mother, N. Jayainthy, is Chinese.

We missed the turn to the convention centre where the wedding dinner was to be held. The trouble with Malaysian road signage (if any), is that by the time you see it, you are likely to have overshot your destination. So, we had to take a detour to come back.

The night started with the bride and groom making a grand entrance into the convention hall. Then cutting the wedding cake and some friends of the newly wed giving speeches. Just like in the case of a Chinese wedding dinner, there was a slide show presentation of the newly wed couple.

There were also some cultural dances and singing. We didn't get to have a good view of them because we sat way back from the stage.

The buffet dinner itself started only by 9.00. I didn't get to take pictures of the food because the lighting was very dim in the hall and I did not feel that the pictures would turn out well. But I liked the curry mutton. It was tender and just nicely spicy. It went well with the nasi briyani.

For dessert, we had watermelon and honeydew melon. To round off, we also had some Indian ice-cream which I was given to understand came from India. The ice-cream was coarser and less sweet than the usual type of ice-cream we are used to here. But nice nevertheless.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
