Men Eating at a Ceremony

At all celebrations, there's always food. Usually the men are served and eat first. They sit around in a sort of circle.  Food is brought out on many plates and sat in the middle, while empty plates are laid out for the men.  They then select what want from the "food plates" and add them to their own, sort of buffet style.  This is a sample from a wedding gathering.  Men here are wearing formal attire, complete with sarongs (leg wraps) and formal hats.  

The women usually come out and eat in a similar fashion once the men have finished.
