OfLoveAndMatrimony.

August 2008 was filled with multiple celebrations of love <3.

Starting off with…

my dear sister’s engagement!

I helped her plan the whole thing and Alhamdulillah, everything went well. The hantarans I (helped) made turned out awesome too, tee heee. Can’t wait for the BIG day next year! Although I secretly dread the day for it would be the day that I will lose my one and only sister. 😦

080808 saw our head girl, Hidayah Jaris, or affectionately known to STFians as Dayout getting married to Afiq, a KYS boy who is currently her classmate in Moscow. Yes, they’re still students! Medical students nonetheless. (Tabik spring lah korang, good luck in juggling things!) Dayout is the second of us 9903 girls to get married after J.E in 2006.

A bunch of us came all the way from KL, Kuantan and Perak to Simpang Renggam just to witness our head girl take the plunge. The turnout was bigger compared to J.E’s, probably due to the head girl factor hahaa. Dayout looked so different after being dolled up! It felt like only yesterday that me and Nuha planned a surprise birthday party for Dayout back in 2003, and now she’s already married! Geez.

NK and Dinie, you two were deeply missed!

Anyway I love batch weddings! We conquered nearly one canopy to ourselves, yakked and camwhored like nobody’s business. Had fun reminiscing the good ole days, and getting updates on everyone’s current whereabouts and new jobs. And of course, we gossiped the afternoon away! So much fun!! πŸ™‚

The weekend after was another batchmate’s turn to get hitched. This time it’s in Meru for Sikin Ahmad’s big day! I only managed to attend the solemnization ceremony as I had another wedding to go to on the reception day. It was a simple event, but very sweet and syahdu y’all. Sobs.

Awwwwwwwwwww.

Sikin and husband Rafeeq are also still studying in Russia. So we came to a conclusion that kalau nak kawin awal, belajar kat Russia. LOL.

Congratulations Dayout and Sikin! Selamat menjadi Puan-puan yang berjaya! May you guys always sail in the same direction, sharing aspirations, hopes, dreams and whatnot. Cheers.

So girls, who’s next? Jeng jeng jeng.

P/S : I’ve managed to attend ALL batch weddings so far. Heh heh heh. Jangan jealous yo.

If You’re Out There

If you hear this message, wherever you stand
I’m calling every woman, calling every man
We’re the generation
We can’t afford to wait
The future started yesterday and we’re already late

We’ve been looking for a song to sing
Searched for a melody
Searched for someone to lead
We’ve been looking for the world to change
If you feel the same
Then go on and say

If you’re out there
Sing along with me
If you’re out there
I’m dying to believe that you’re out there
Stand up and say it loud
If you’re out there
Tomorrow’s starting now
Now, now

No more broken promises
No more call to war
Unless it’s love and peace that we’re really fighting for
We can destroy hunger
We can conquer hate
Put down the arms and raise your voice
We’re joining hands today

Oh I was looking for a song to sing
I searched for a leader
But the leader was me
We were looking for the world to change
We can be heroes
Just go on and say

If you’re out there
Sing along with me
If you’re out there
I’m dying to believe that you’re out there
Stand up and say it loud
If you’re out there
Tomorrow’s starting now
Now, now

If you’re ready we can shake the world
Believe again
It starts within
We don’t have to wait for destiny
We should be the change that we want to see

If you’re out there
Ooooh
If you’re out there
And you’re ready now
Say it loud
Scream it out

If you’re out there
Sing along with me
If you’re out there
I’m dying to believe that you’re out there
Stand up and say it loud
If you’re out there
Tomorrow’s starting now

If you’re out there
If you’re out there
If you’re out there

If you hear this message, wherever you stand
I’m calling every woman, calling every man
We’re the generation
We can’t afford to wait
The future started yesterday and we’re already late

P/S : The love of my life John Legend, performed this new single at the recent 2008 Democratic National Convention. The message is loud and clear, innit? (do apply to the current local politics, if you wish πŸ˜›)

And Johny baby has never failed to warm the cockles of my heart, <3<3<3

Why I Like Weekends. Or Not.

I’ve been tagged by THE NoktahHitam! Woooot! How very…..rewarding (as he puts it). Thanks, nonetheless.

Anyhoo, I’m pretty sure everyone has their own love/hate relationship with weekends. Nowadays that I’m living in a hostel, I really look forward to weekends as I get to go back to Banting woohoooouu! Yes, the small suburbia an hour away from KL where people aren’t dressed to the nines and things move at a slightly slower pace. But ultimately, where the HEART (and home) is. πŸ™‚

And by being home, I get to spend time with the family unit! It doesn’t matter if it’s a day of grocery shopping with Mama or a random girl talk with Kakak or breakfast over some Milo and toast with Abah. Every second counts, and I want to spend as much time possible with them before I get jetted off to some faraway place for work in 2 years time and before I grow up into a completely different person later. 😦

Catching up on sleep is definitely on top of my to-do list during weekends. Imagine the routine 4-5 hours of sleep every weekday (filled with exam nightmares too! Scary kan kan?), and the drill that follows upon waking up – classes, ward work, revision, etc. By Friday I’ll be completely drained to the core, hence the need to sleep (excessively) during weekends.

Oh and how could I not mention the idiot box. I seriously need my weekly dose of E! News, reruns of movies, and EPL matches to keep my sanity intact. Speaking of which, Arsenal lost their first game of the season to Fulham yesterday. Damn. Note to the gaffer, please please pleaseeeeee buy a quality midfielder nowwww or risk losing the title! Again! Pffttttttttttttttt.

But if I have something on at Uni and decide to spend the weekend in KL, I’ll either be in some mall watching movies, or you can find me gabbing and munching with a bunch of friends around town. I usually spend Friday nights outside but I don’t do parties, clubs, or anything of that sort though, thank you. I try my best to avoid the long queues in the mall, as well as the heavy traffic that proves too much for my manual Kancil’s liking.

Perhaps the only other thing I hate about weekends is that they lead to Mondays. Evidently, my weekends are usually unproductive so you can imagine how hectic my Sunday nights are. I’ll be frantically trying to finish up assignments if any, and revise whatever needs to be revised before another rough week comes along.

Which is exactly what I’m doing right now!!!!

Arghhhhhhhhhhh fark Sundays! And Mondays too, for that matter.

Haih.
