The end of the year is well-known as the wedding season. Many like to tie the knot around the holiday season. But unfortunately, the end of the year in Malaysia also means it’s monsoon season.
Wedding season and monsoon season don’t mix really well. Especially when the monsoon season gets real bad and brings a flood along with it. That’s what happened to this couple’s wedding in Meru, Klang.
TikTok user, Opie (@Asyikonnnnnnnnnn), got married during the huge flash flood that took place during the weekend. She stated that the wedding had been planned months back, and the venue was booked a couple of months ago. The venue was decided because it was in the vicinity of a homestay, which makes it convenient for family members who come from different states.
Opie also mentioned to mStar that she did not expect for the water levels to rise as high as it did after putting up the tents. “A week before, the weather was okay. Even when the tents and the wedding dais were put up, there were no signs of flood on that Friday, just small drizzles of rain. Then the water level went up to our calves, and by evening, the water reached up to our waist,” she explained.
Wedding of the year 💞💞
The wedding was expected to house over 200 guests, but it had to be cancelled at the very last minute. Her relatives, who came form different states and were staying in that homestay, were moved to higher grounds (another relative’s home) in Bukit Kapar, Klang.
Despite the flash flood that crashed Opie’s wedding, she was still seen smiling from ear to ear with her husband right next to her. They even took beautiful, but eccentric, wedding pictures with their legs and wedding dresses soaked in the murky flood water. No, don’t worry, their wedding dresses were their own, and not rented!
walupun banjir kita enjoy the moment ..
We don’t know whether to laugh or be scared, but there was even a water snake that passed through their legs under the guests’ tables! Nevertheless, we wish Opie and her husband a long-lasting, happy and blessed marriage!
