They say that animals have a sixth sense and are a good indication on the weather to come. If you see a heard of cows acting erratically, that could be a sign that they can feel the rumbles of an earthquake in the ground hours before it actually hits. Goats running to the hills might also be a warning that a tsunami is on the way.
We were a little worried when we got to the tastefully designed Bon Ton because it had been raining heavily in the previous evenings. But we decided to trust this sleepy meow we met at the kampung house where an intimate wedding dinner was to be held that night.
Bon Ton and their sister Temple Tree next door, by the way, are excellent venues for a small wedding. The architecture and interior styling of their buildings bring back a sense of nostalgia from the golden days of Malaya.
We made a sweet simple posy for the bride, accompanied by matching boutonnieres for the groom and best men.
The ambience of the surroundings really takes a different light at the start of dusk. The lazy kitty's omen was right: it was definitely going to be a beautiful evening for a cosy soiree.
