Weddings have been banned according to the implementation of the Movement Restriction Order in Malaysia which started today (18 March) as they are considered as mass gatherings. As such, many couples decided to postpone their weddings as a precaution to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Luckily for this couple, they managed to hold their wedding on Monday (16 March) right before the Order was announced. A series of photos were shared on the couple’s wedding planner, Dinas Bridal’s Facebook page, showing a fascinating and ground-breaking way of organising a wedding.

In the photos, the couple was seated on a well-decorated bridal dais and it was an open-air event at a roadside.

What was least expected was that there were no guests at their wedding, only a line of cars queued on the streets. The couple was seen to be greeting their guests (in their respective vehicles), with smiles on their faces and hands on their chests.

A sign was written saying “Drive-thru”, while the guests pulled up in front of the couple, and dropped their wedding gifts into a donation box without making any direct contact with the couple. In return, the couple delivered a bag of food to their guest, making it a drive-thru wedding reception.

In order to avoid direct contact between the married couple and guests, no handshakes were exchanged. Instead, hand signs were exchanged as a form of greeting.

“Reduce contact in open places because we (Dinas Bridal) care,” wrote Dinas Bridal.

This Facebook post garnered 4.4k reactions as well as 11k shares since 16 March, and netizens were absolutely amused upon seeing such an innovative wedding reception. Many thought it was brilliant, and this idea could be used as a reference in the future to save cost.

Mis Ina: “I think this is a great idea. It’s a complete package with the married couple, guests and a donation box. Once greeted, the guests can receive packed food to bring home right away.”

Izz Izham: “This is perfect because it saves budget.”

Razieq Sukor: “I was just thinking about holding a wedding reception that saves money without the budget for food catering. Can’t believe someone else already had this idea.”

Fazrie Rosli: “This wedding reception is the most memorable one.”

One netizen expressed how thoughtful this idea is amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.

Aspalela Mohd Zain: “This is a great suggestion. I strongly agree with this idea to slow down the spread of Covid-19.”

“挑动群众斗群众”伎俩遭踢爆 港媒吁慎防免转发假消息

香港民众反逃犯条例仍在持续,但是已引起中港台和全球中文圈民众对香港情势的两极化激烈讨论。有者支持港民群众运动坚持撤回条例修法和释放示威者;但亦有评论非议示威群众持续抗争。 支持建制派和反修例两派人士,在舆论界的辩论亦十分激烈。然而, 香港传媒亦踢爆,有者拍摄“伪示威者”现身说法批斗父母的视频,企图把示威者皆抹黑和标签为“不孝”、“反国反港”罪名,分化群众以制造“群众都群众”的优势。 据香港打假脸书专页“求验传媒”揭发,本月6月21日,一个声称“Louis Yuen”的男子在一段视频中,声称自己参与了6月9日及6月12日反送中游行,然后发表了一段有关父母的言论。片段中他没有提供任何证据,以证明他有参与上述游行,也没有提供任何自己的背景资料。 “Louis Yuen”质疑连日抗争只是年轻人却不见上一代,认为是父母已不爱子女的表现。 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erP5IsjwvNA 求验传媒就揭发, 这名男子发布该片段的FB 专页“Louis Yuen”是在6月15日成立,至今只有28个赞和43个追随者。 然而,虽然原版本已经删除,然而建制派、亲政府平台或媒体“如获至宝”,许多经过修改的版本遭广传,以偏概全将“Louis…
