Traditional Bugis Wedding Attire

(the groom and the bride)






Purification Ceremony called “Mappaccing”

            This is held in the night before the wedding day. In this ceremony, there are several things must be prepared. First, a pillow that is put in front of the bride as a symbol of rank. On the pillow, we put banana leaf as a symbol of good life and seven or nine jackfruit leaves above it as a symbol of hope. Second, seven silk sarongs as a symbol of pride. Third, a bowl of rice symbolizes growth. Fourth,   some candles as a symbol of intimacy. Last, “Paccar” symbolizes purification, a kind of plan that produces red liquid used as nail polish traditionally. The ceremony is meant to purify the bride before getting married by smearing crushed paccar on her palms, neck, and forehead.



Khatam Qur’an

( The bride reads the holy Qur’an in front of Imam with several sarongs put in her back)

I wrote this cuz I saw some of people here didn't respect each other. I have a female friend. She is my classmate. She is the only Christian in my class but we respect each other and we have a good relationship. Although we have different religion, we never argue about it. The only thing we believe that, we shouldn't judge the person from his/her religion, but his/her character or personality cuz human being were created as a good n a bad person. Nobody's perfect in this world. How can we live peacefully in this world if we don't respect each other????
