Amazing Experience

Amazing Experience

We were just invited yesterday to a Malay wedding, a rare occurrence for a foreign in Malaysia; as one of our IBM teams is working the the UMP, and one of the local person from the staff was getting married, we were included as distinguished guest, and got to experience this wonderful cultural event. We got to see first-handed the great richness of their culture, the warmth and openness of their celebrations, and help them with the montage and cleaning before and after the ceremony, as only family and close friends get to do; we were asked to also perform a ritual to wish them good luck in their marriage, applying water, petals and rice in their hands, and I felt like we were treated as family; for me it was a very special moment, getting to really feel the culture and the real people that lives in this country and we’re trying to help; it feel just right trying to understand them better, and having this amazing experience was one of the better times that I have so far; I hope that we have the chance to live more moments with the local community like this.
