We had our Sang Jit on Sunday 16th of January 2010. From the guys (David) side of the family, we need to have 6 representatives each bringing sort of a gift to visit the girl's (Agnes) family. My parents and I are not allowed to go to Agnes place, we are to wait at home till the representatives from our family come back bringing back half of the gifts as a sign that they were successful in asking Agnes' family for permission for her to be betrothed to me.
Some families choose not to have the SangJit at all as it's been considered old fashioned, but we just sticked to tradition and continued with it, although we didn't make it such a big deal.
The 6 representatives from Dave's family each holding parcel as a gift.
Left to right: Engkim Nelly (Auntie), Ci Lily (Mum's niece), Priska (Ci Lily's daughter, she's supposed to call me uncle by the way), Engku Benny (Uncle), Budi (Cousin), Yadi (Cousin).
Pictures have to be taken as they leave the house, 1 by 1 with the gifts in hand.
