This ceremony would be held when both sides have finalised arrangements and fixed the dates for all the ceremonies. It will be held on a suitable date mutually agreed by both sides. Usually it will be held at the balai or similarly suitable place. It would be held at Lapau for the Royal wedding. However since this ceremony precedes the custom of opening the Gendang Jaga-Jaga, it is therefore outside the period of customary ceremonies related to the Royal wedding (i.e. outside the period of Musim Istiadat).
Only after this ceremony would the dates of subsequent customs and ceremony related to the Royal Wedding be fixed. In this ceremony the man’s side would go to the woman’s side and officially declare the intention of the man in seeking the hand of the woman in marriage. The woman’s side would officially reply that they are aware of the man’s noble intention of and like the berjarum-jarum ceremony would later send a delegation to the man’s side to inform about its acceptance and fixed the other dates related to the wedding ceremonies.
