Because L is for the way you look at me.

There’s just so much love in the air, I couldn’t resist.

My babe Munie got married yesterday and I am super happy for her! To have found a person you’re confident enough to live a lifetime with, that’s really something. To Munie, sorry we couldn’t give you the kickass hen night you deserve due to some unforeseen circumstances that took place. But those times we spent prior to the wedding were priceless and I sure hope you can be there when I find my happy ending too. 🙂

Oh did I mention that I love the wedding? She looked super radiant and so pretty like I’ve never seen her! Munie’s dress was to-die-for and the hantarans pun cantik gila. Us bridesmaids got to dress up in pink too!

But in general, I just loveeee weddings. OK fine, it’s  a bit unhealthy for a single gal like me who’s supposed to be all bitter and whatnot with girlfriends getting married left, right and center. But it celebrates love and all things corny so what’s not to like kan? Haha. Silly.

I am honest to God happy that my girlfriends have found love, and in time, I too, hope that I will find a person who will complement me and love me for the things that I am. Yes, the weeper, the hopeless romantic and the kiasu me. All of it.

Ahhhh all these talk is so overwhelming weh.

Congratulations again to Munie and Matde! Quoting a wise friend, marriage is a gamble anyways so just suck it up and make the best out of it!

P/S : Wedding present later ok. Pitih takdok.

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

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!! 🙂

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.
