Malim Nawar is a small new village town about 25 minutes car journey from Kampar, Perak. Kampar is the home of University Tengku Abdul Rahman (UNiTar).
Philip Chan from Johor Baru has no inkling of where Malim Nawar is.... Thanks to his only son Andrew, he and his wife Theresa are now welcome and have the opportunity to know almost half of the village population.
On November 24 Tuesday, his son wed Mabel Chai Mei Chan, one of the six daughters of Mr. Chai of Malim Nawar New Village.
His good friend Tony, together with wife Susan, son Kelvin and wife Jennifer, and two grandchildren, my wife and I were there to attend the Chinese marriage rites conducted by the bride's family. The Catholic marriage rite would be celebrated on November 28 in Johor Baru by Bishop Emeritus James Chan, brother of Philip.
A wedding dinner at a restaurant was held on the eve of the wedding (Nov 23). We enjoyed the food very much. We also had the opportunity to enjoy the specialty of bride's mother - Lui Cha!

Malim Nawar 华文名是双溪古月，好像有点牛头不对马嘴。它是一个新村小镇，离开金宝市大约是二十五分钟车程。霹雳的金宝是拉曼大学（UNiTAR）的所在地。
