Tag-o-rama

This is me, de-stressing.

Was tagged by NK some few entries ago, and it so happens that I’m in the mood for the tagging business.

First tag.

1) Take a recent picture of yourself or take a picture of yourself right NOW!. 2) DON’T change your clothes, DON’T fix your hair…just take a picture. 3) Post that picture with NO editing. 4) Post these instruction with your picture. 5) Tag 10 people to do this.

My phone doesn’t have a camera (It’s a 4 year-old Nokia 6610 which still functions VERY WELL despite multiple falls and toilet misfortunes HAHA. And I intend to keep this baby of mine until I earn enough moolah to buy myself a Blackberry. Which will be lagi 2 years kot?) and my digital camera apparently eats alkaline battery for breakfast, hence the pictureless post.

Next tag.

A wedding tag. 🙂 A few of my girlfriends are getting engaged/married very soon, so I’ve been indulging in their wedding fantasies a bit too much that I just have to come up with my own set of answers! Mind you I have a very limited imagination and I enjoy being practical, so what you read here might materialize sebijik-sebijik during the wedding. If it’ll ever take place lah. LOL.

1.How old are you?
22.

2. Are you single?
Very.

3. In what age do you think you’ll get married?
Hmmh. I’d say around 28-30. Considering a woman’s short reproductive age and to avoid cancer risks, I don’t oppose the idea of tying the knot even earlier than that though. Nuha said and I quote – “The clock is ticking!

4. Do you think you’ll be marrying the person you are with now?
Not applicable.

5. If not, who do you want to marry?
Mister Right. The one I fall head over heels for. The one who make me go weak at the knees.

6. Do you want a garden/beach wedding, or the traditional wedding?
A garden wedding! I do want some traditional aspects incorporated because I’m just conventional like that. Beach wedding won’t work for me, nanti tudung kulop y’all. LOL.

7. Your ideal motif?
WHITE, with blue irises/orange lilies as deco. But if were to pick a colour, a light shade of orange would be nice. But it depends on the colour of the groom as well. Ehem.

8. Where do you plan to go on a honeymoon?
MONACO!! Basically anywhere nice with a kick ass hotel service because as newlyweds we would wanna spend more of our time indoors….right? Haha.

9. How many guests do you think you’ll invite?
I have a BIG family, so a small intimate event won’t work for me. Probably a thousand guests.

10. Do you want an extravagant wedding or a simple wedding?
A classy, sophisticated one.

11. Do you want the traditional vows or something you’d make up on your own??
I’ll totally make up something on my own, and it’ll be as corny as hell so you’ve been warned! And it’d be nice if he would somehow emulate Preston Burke’s vow and put a little twist to make it sound his own.

12. How many layers of cake do you want to have?
A sumptuous 2-tier red velvet cake, covered in white icing swirls and topped with sugar roses.

13. Do you prefer having your reception at a hotel or at a simple place?
Hotel receptions would cost a bomb, plus it won’t accommodate a lot of guest. So at home it will be. A destination wedding would be nice, but it would be a hassle to plan for. Not practical.

14. When do you want to get married, evening or morning?
Doesn’t matter, as long as it doesn’t interrupt waktu solat and tak panas. I don’t wanna mess my make-up!

15. You’d rather have your reception outdoors or indoors?
Outdoors, please.

16. Do you like a grand entrance for your groom/bride?
Yes!

17. Name the song/tune you’d like played at your wedding?
These 3 songs will be played on heavy rotation : Carpenter’s Close To You, Dewa 19’s Kasidah Cinta, and Edwin McCain’s I Couldn’t Ask For More.  And he has to sing me Angel by Jack Johnson to which I would reply with Love Is You by Chrisette Michele. Hoho.

18. Are you a morning person or a night person?
A night person. I am veryyyy cranky in the morning sans my coffee fix.

19. Do you want a solemn ceremony or a light one?
A light one.

20. What age do you want to get married?
Hmmmh. 28 ish? After internship, definitely.

21. Describe your ideal husband/wife.

BLACK,BALD,BUFF,LOOKS LIKE TYSON BECKFORD,SINGS LIKE JOHN LEGEND,

Just someone who gets me. Someone who is funny, witty, intellectual, confident but self-deprecating, adventurous, and spiritual. Someone who respects me, my family, and my friends. Someone who will not stand in the way of my ambitions, and supports me throughout the way. Andddd kalau boleh someone who is not a doctor. Cukuplah aku sorang je geek.

I’d like to think that all the aforementioned qualities are actually achievable. Insha-Allah. 🙂 (Yes Dinie, I remain optimistic!)

22. Do you prefer fine dining or just the normal spoon & fork/knife?
Normal fork and spoon. Tangan pun ok.

23. Champagne or red wine?
Neither.

24. Honeymoon right after the wedding or days after the wedding?
Right after! I doubt if that is possible though, because my mom had always said that “Lepas habis majlis, pengantin kena tolong sental periuk“. But we’re definitely getting a caterer so there’ll be no periuk to sental la kan?

25. Money or household item?
Tak kisah. Surprise me!

26. Who will pay for the bills?
Both of us will.

27. Are you ready for married life?
As for now, hell no.

28. Do you think you will still be a virgin until u get married?
Definitely. But quoting NK, “Unless John Legend/James Mc Avoy/Thierry Henry is all alone with me on a deserted island. Hahahaa.”

29. Will you always be true to your wife/husband?
Always will. And hopefully it’ll go both ways too. I’ll beat the crap out of him if  he cheats haha.

30. How many kids do you like?
2-3. No twins please. Too much to handle at one time.

31. A new house for a newly wed or an old one?
A new one. Probably a cosy apartment for two in the suburbs of KL. Kot-kot I marry a millionnaire, a place like The Troika is an option too. Ngee.

32. Will you celebrate silver wedding, gold wedding, or diamond wedding?
Doesn’t really matter. But I do want to have something like a vow-renewal ceremony when we get older, to reaffirm our love and whatnot. Sweeeet.

33. What kind of cuisine would you like for your wedding?
Fusion. East meets west. Will it be too much to ask for kambing golek? Oh and a dessert bar is a must!

34. Will you record your honeymoon in a cd or dvd?
Dvd. Cd mesti takkan muat.

I’m tagging my UPM mates: Farah, Munie, Anot, Lynn and Nana. De-stress people! Hahaa

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. 🙂

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.
