KUALA LUMPUR - It was a special day for 30 couples who tied the knot to mark the date 11.12.13 yesterday.

Some of them had booked the special date since June, Bernama reports.

Kuala Lumpur National Registration Department (NRD) director Norehan Abdullah said at a press conference that six of the couples were from Putrajaya and Selangor.

The department's office in Jalan Duta was congested since 8am with cars carrying brides and grooms, as well as their entourages.

Mechanic S. Navindren, 30, and his bride S. Kasthury, 30, said they chose to register their marriage on Dec 11 this year as the date was unique.

For K. Krisha, 26, the date was not only beautiful, but also easy to remember.

"This special date happens only once in a century, that is why I decided to get married today," he said.

Businessman Chua Kwee Lim, 35, who tied the knot with bank officer Yap Mong Theng, 23, said he chose the day as he wanted the most special event in his life to be held on a special day.

The marriage registration for all the couples was done by senior registration assistant Ramani Iyapillai. Besides the Jalan Duta office, two couples registered their marriage at the NRD office in Wangsa Maju, 11 in Pudu UTC and six in Taman Maluri.
