My bridesmaids

It’s summer now somewhere and on Buzzfeed there are several articles on wedding, seems like it’s now the best season to get married over there.

So, my bridesmaids were actually all my PTDs friends, since they are living nearby and they proposed to me to organize a bachelorette party. Which was held at my house. They planned everything, a day before my engagement ceremony, I think. I was at this self service laundry station when Oren came to get my house keys and told me they’re gonna do some decorations. I was like, okay, I’ll be home in less than 2 hours. Paris texted me saying that they will be wearing whites so I should pick other colors.

It was a simple but meaningful day with my closest girlfriends. I can’t be thankful enough, I wish them happiness always.

Fast forward on my wedding days which is on Monday, Fish couldn’t make it since she’s needed at the office but she put on same coloured dress though, the effort. For the wedding, I let them chose their own dresses in any colour as long they are different from amer’s and mine dresses as well as our family – mine is in red, while amer’s in green. So they opted for purple. Which was nice. 🙂

Alhamdulillah, my wedding though a simple one, involved only allowed solemnization and a small party, was a great and intimate ones with the family and closest friends.

Cakes and all, I can’t be thankful enough

My brothers in services, Taz who helped me with hantarans (he did the decoration) and Jimi who accompanied me searching for the venue haha

That’s all!

The years of pandemic

I think like many people, I am not the only one who wakes up every morning and wishes that number of cases of COVID-19 in Malaysia will magically decreases, up to a single digit, somehow. Today, there were more than 5000 cases recorded. I have my close family who had been tested positive of COVID-19, alhamdulillah they are doing fine, and some were released off COVID-19 too.

It’s been a year and a half since the first case reached Malaysia. February last year, I had a talked with someone (E) he said “I think Malaysia will suffer economically if the numbers keep on increasing”. I agreed with him but in March 2020 I’d been on a plane more than 5 times and without mask. Somehow it was still a relaxing time where everyone could travel freely. Fast forward, I couldn’t believe that the situations are getting worse each day.

I guess we should adapt to the new norm, I am talking both on personal and work matters. Though it pains me so much that I could not make my trip home as frequent as before. But I am glad I’m married now, my husband has became my family he sorts of like a replacement (haha). Plus my in laws are here in Selangor though within different districts. I think most of us are now comfortable to put our mask on whenever we are outside or within crowd. (This includes our casual hanging out in front of the houses or with neighbors, the delivery man, colleagues….)

About work, it seems that most of us are now adapting really well with the technology, I guess it is also timely for us to make a change in our work to optimize the IT things. But I could do with less option of meeting platform though.

I actually thought I could reflect better but things are always easier on our mind. Anyway, it’s Father’s Day today, so happy fathers’ day everyone!

Till I feel like talking again. Bye.

Take care, patuhi SOP. Ya.

#ameraishah – Tunang dan Nikah!

Assalamualaikum! Hi kepada yang baca ni!

Alhamdulillah, rasa macam semuanya berlaku begitu pantas sekali (hee) I dan Amer dah kahwin pada 14 Disember lepas. Yes, masih boleh wish pengantin baru and kirimkan hadiah, kalau nak bagi. HAHA.

I pun tak tahu macam mana nak describe perasaan ni, sebab kadang-kadang rasa macam tak percaya yang kami dah kahwin. Kami akad nikah di Pejabat Agama Islam Daerah (PAID) Sepang, dengan wali ayah I… dan dinikahkan oleh Ustaz Zamzuri dari PAID Sepang. Alhamdulillah, semua urusan dokumen dan HIV Test sebelum pernikahan dipermudahkan.

Majlis bertunang kami was on 29th Nov, sama juga, semuanya dirancang macam cakap-cakap, Amer was like “mama tanya, tak nak tunang dulu ke?” “bagi la can mama sarungkan cincin tunang” pastu I sometimes took it seriously terus gi survey tempat etc, tempah make up etc… finally, tunang pun senyap2 saja dan hanya dihebahkan kepada kawan-kawan dan keluarga yang rapat. In fact, hari tunang tu, baru I text group family sebelah arwah my mom to let them know that I was about to got engaged. HMMM.

Kami buat saringan HIV di Klinik Kesihatan Salak Tinggi (kawasan kediaman I) and it was my first time sampai situ pun sebab biasanya I gi klinik area Putrajaya tapi nak book slot for the test… penuh! So again, siap test tu, baru la I boleh proceed with all the documents for kebenaran berkahwin.

Back and forth of scanning and sending documents to and from my father too… it was quite stressful at times but alhamdulillah, on 2nd December, permohonan diterima dan dapat tarikh nikah —- semua pun aware kut yang pejabat agama di Selangor ni penuh dengan permintaan menikah. HAHA.

So, after nikah, akad ambil masa less than 20 minutes saja, I did had a Google Meet session with some family members and friends, Amer and I with helps from our photographer and my bridesmaid (aimi, mid, sally, azy…) and abang2 (taz, jimmy and sani) had arranged a Google Meet during our akad… so some could watch it live.

Then, we had afternoon tea at Movenpick Hotel for close family and friends. InsyaAllah, there will be kenduri soon in Kelantan, hoping to do that too next year. You guys are invited.

Bye! Happy New Year!

Some updates

  1. The engagement was postponed, and now the CMCO is extended to 6th Dec, we planned to have the ceremony on 12th Dec, but hmmm, I’m actually afraid to plan (also tired)
  2. We went to a tailor, last Sunday to have our custom made baju. Entahlah, it was a spur of the moment action after we had breakfast last Sunday, seems like there’s nothing else to do, we were driving around while trying to Google some reasonable tailor and made some calls to check if the baju can be made within a month… patutnya baju tu untuk hantaran tunang, so since tak jadi, gi jelah hantar tailor dulu…
  3. Sakit I dah getting better, except on some areas but overall, better la dari a month ago. I dah kena top up ubat sebab tak cukup, elok2 sebulan je some ubat habis, supposed the supply would last me two months.
  4. Random : Fazura dah bersalin, nama anak dia Fatima.
  5. Anak buah I yang baru pulak, namanya Muhammad Firas Affan….
  6. What a year, kan?
Hopefully it would turn out okay. The most expensive one so far, I must say.
