73 Sultan Gate, Singapore 198497
‘Taman Emas’, The Wedding Fair 2009is an event organized by the team of Restoran Tepak Sireh with The Malay Heritage Centre (MHC) and The Malay Art Gallery to produce a cultural and heritage programme, ‘The Sixth Heirloom Rejuvenation Ceremony’ in conjunction with the fresh beginning of the Muslim month. This would educate and enthuse the masses, primarily potential wedding couples to hold their future reception at two of the most renowned and historical heritage buildings for the Malay society in Singapore in particular.
Following the traditional practices of a typical Malay wedding setting and mannerism, watch out for‘Junjungan’ (hand-carriage services), as common as how the late Sultanate would travel from place to place, an interesting experience which is now less practiced in our modern Malay society. Patrons will expect a pleasant tour and atmosphere around the breathtaking sceneries of wedding settings held at RTS and MHC. Besides the addition of The Malay Arts Gallery’s complimentary ‘Keris Exhibition’ at the Royal Club VIP room, guests are also welcomed to savour our deliciously authentic Malay cuisine, picked from our wedding menu, which would be available at our lunch and dinner buffet spreads.
Other public programmes include cultural performances such as Dance,‘Kompang’ Entourage, ‘Kuda Kepang’ and ‘Silat Pengantin’, by our in-house performing arts group, Artiste Seni Budaya Tepak Sireh. Another catch of the event is the grand bridal runway, put up by our exclusive bridal boutique partner, Asmara Bridal. Take a short trail to MHC’s courtyard, guests will be enticed to more exciting activities including ‘Keris Balancing’ acts and the grand ‘Keris Competition’. More than 30 foreign silat exponents will participate in the Silat demonstrations at Malay Heritage Centre.
