The memory of my late grandfather has always been about how he mentioned certain things. For example, he called his torchlight "celait". I always thought that he didn't know how to speak proper English. He just simply wanted to tease. He knew. I heard him. And he was much better than me!
I called it bunga telur. He called it something else. No bunga. It was "telur orang kahwin" or directly translated as groom's egg.
I laughed at this once. If I'm saying Telur Orang Kahwin with a reverse mind, definitely I'm thinking of something else, don't you think?
December is a wedding month. Where bunga telur or what I called as telur orang kahwin is available in almost all wedding. I know people give away cakes,candies and pot pouris these days but for me, giving away eggs is a classic act, and I like the classics:)
I always wanted the simplest stuff. I had seriously told ibu that I only wanted an egg in an origami serviette if I'm getting married. (I have dreams too, you know).
Do you know that during the old days they folded serviette to make it a basket for the egg? They just used the cheap pink colour serviette.
My ibu thought that it was just a joke. It was not. Nowadays we have colourful serviettes:)
Well, I just want to be happy. That's all. I don't need fancy bunga telur. Though I hope I know how to make telur pindang like the one I ate in Johor. I heard it is so difficult to make, because if I don't do it correctly then the eggs will become bitter. Bitter telur orang kahwin? No, that's not a good idea:)
Or telur masin orang kahwin?
Talk about reverse mind now.
Thinking about flower and telur is making me grin. Oh Sha...you're so dirty minded! Yet you're not married. Wajib dah!!!!
Are you going to any wedding?
What is the colour of telur orang kahwin today?
