MALAY WEDDINGS DON'T COST $50 AND OTHER FACTS ABOUT MALAY CULTURE
by Hidayah Amin
published by Helang Books
Malay Weddings Don't Cost $50 is a collection of 42 articles which serves as a guide to Malay culture and heritage, lifestyle and personas.
The book highlights some Malay customs and practices, including controversial issues such as virginity, circumcision, supernatural beings, and the infamous '$50-Malay-wedding' remark that triggered a heated debate on racism in Singapore in October 2012. It also includes a number of stories originally published under the "Let's Lepak!" (Let's Chill!) column on the now-defunct website of Singapore International Foundation (www.singaporekopitiam.sg), delighting many Singaporeans and foreigners who wanted to understand more about the Malays.
This book is one of the few books about Malay culture and heritage written in English. The 42 articles cover a variety of topics, and though laden with facts, are written for easy reading and understanding.
