Dan mintalah pertolongan (kepada Allah) dgn jalan sabar dan mengerjakan
sembahyang; dan sesungguhnya sembahyang itu amatlah berat kecuali kepada orang-orang yang khusyuk.

Our Engagement, 30th June 2013


Ramadhan is coming soon, tomorrow to be exact. So selamat menunaikan ibadah di bulan Ramadhan. Somehow, this post will be a bit 'lagha' and distracting from Ramadhan. :)

Alhamdulillah, on 30th June, we are officially engaged. I couldn't invite many friends and juniors as I couldn't expect how big the crowd would be on that day. Especially the relatives of Mr F's side.

It was a blessings. I don't have much cousins to rely on. But I have my Achiq and Acu and also Kak Ziah and family, and Alang and Pak Cik Ya(Mummy's elder brother) and family that also turned up last minute.
Daddy, mummy, Iyah, Are Are, Aiman, Yusuf, Aisyah worked hard for this event. I was so stressed out sometimes I lose control. And keep wishing for the event to end as it was so tiring. Thank you for being patience enough. Also, I was so happy when Yufi came and assist the day before because she couldn't come on that day. As my request, A'idah came early that Sunday, and helped me with the make up and accessories. My plan to make up myself was a success. With A'idah's help for the eye liner of course. haha. Atie and Fafau also turned up a bit later than A'idah. Had some big laughs with the girls upstairs. Last but not least, Epa and family. With the bam bam Muhammad and Poor Dedy Muhammad, eating alone outside.

During the make up session, Atie asked, "Kak wani rasa nervous tak?" My answer was, "Tak, tapi rasa sangat excited korang datang." Terharu okay.

At 3 pm, the event is supposed to start. It started a bit late. 315 perhaps. Me and A'idah was struggling upstairs to make me look prettier. Or at least, makes my zits fades and my eyes looks bigger. Haha. After we're done, we spent some time haha-ing, taking pictures, also on me practicing how to sit nicely on kakla's bantal. Not long, Acu came calling me. I went down, a bit shy as people are watching and saw some faces that makes me finally smile. Sat down for one Minute, and suddenly Cik Na is already in front of me. Then the 'sarung cincin' session had been done. It happens so fast. And yeah, We're officially engaged. :)

One of my favourite candid picture for the day.

My hantaran for Mr F. 
Dulang and flowers made by mummy. 

Mr F's hantaran for me. 

It was a short and simple event. There's no pelamin. Just a pillow that mummy made for me. It becomes 'bantal kakla'. haha. And I don't hire a special photographer. Just my sisters. My suggestion, if you don't want to hire a pro photographer for your event, and just a sibling instead; make sure it's a guy! If not afterwards your photographer will feel guilty seeing aunties cleaning up and joined them in the kitchen doing chores. Or at least, a friend. Not much picture but, it's fine.

Food, I hoped the food is nice. There's a lot of left overs. We didn't manage to bungkus for Mr F's family. And I never thought of calling him to come back to take the food. Teruk, kan? :( Semua benda pun lupa. The only thing that was on my mind is to clean up and get a sleep.

Now, I'm starting to focus on my wedding plans. Also, my student's SPM. Glad enough there aren't papers on 11th & 12th Nov.

My English is horror.

Kalau tak ikhlas, buat apa pun tak jadi. Usaha doa tawakal.

You know what’s beautiful?

Your eyes blinking, your pupils dilating when you’re euphoric, the curve of your smile, the shade of your teeth, the arch of your back, the fingers typing, the breathing thing you do, the thoughts. Your thoughts. How you think is beautiful; how a thought comes to mind is…a miracle, how you operate, how you are; just you. In every sense of the word; all your blood cells, neurons, organs, your limbs, your soul. You are breathtaking, mashaa’Allaah.


You can’t control the things that happen to you but you can control the way you react to them. It’s all perception.
