Bunga Manggar Jagung

I can speak Malay! We learned about Malay weddings in social studies at school and watched a very long 2-hour video on wedding ceremonies. I think I can conduct the ceremony.

In a Malay wedding, there are beautiful decorations made of tinsel that look like fireworks. It looks like this and is called bunga manggar.

Don’t you think my red aztec corn tassels look just like the bunga manggar? Maybe not as colourful though. And I am very sad because no silks are out, so we are carefully shaking the pollen from the tassels into plastic bags and popping them in the fridge.

And….announcing the arrival of the first Taiwanese bicoloured corn tassel! It is a foreign talent but we are supposed to welcome it.
