As a muslim, how do you get married in Malaysia? Especially in Selangor?

What are the procedures of getting married in Malaysia?

I had a look at the website of Jabatan Agama Islam Selangor and there seems to be a heck lot of processes that a couple needs to go through. Why the red tape? Why make it so difficult?

For those who have gone through this or about to go through this, share your thoughts below. It’d be interesting to have a discussion about this matter.

Exams out of the way! Woohoo!

I’ll be leaving for Kuala Lumpur in 6 hours. Now making last preparations before heading out to the airport. Will be touching down in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei for an overnight transit before proceeding to Kuala Lumpur. If there’s WiFi anywhere throughout my journey, I’ll try to post up some pictures but no promises! 🙂

Malaysian Library System

Have you been to any of Malaysia’s library? If you have, you might know what I’m about to say here. If you haven’t, then you don’t know what you’re “missing” out on.

I’m going to share my experience with two libraries. One is our National Library in Kuala Lumpur and the second one is MPPJ Library in Petaling jaya.

National Library (Perpustakaan Negara)

To be a member of the National Library, you need to fill a form (need to pay for the form), then proceed to another counter to pay for the membership card. Can’t recall how much they cost.

After receiving your membership card, you proceed to the entrance. A security guard stops you. He checks and says:

“Dik, ni semua tak boleh bawak masuk ni. Beg tak boleh, file tak boleh, gunting tak boleh, botol air tak boleh masuk, etc. Kena letak dalam locker”

By now, you’re like WTF?

Last time my partner and I myself went to National Library, here are some of the items that can’t be brought in:

1. Bags
2. Handbags
3. Plastic Folder
4. Water Bottles
5. Scissors (National Library, if I wanted to steal any part of your books, I can just rip it off la! No need scissors).
