Cuci the Musical adalah terlalu AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!
Highly recommended! Sila tengok dan sila gelak macam syaitan.
Owh, sila jangan tgk dengan org yg datang naik motor dari PD pasal dia takleh concentrate pasal dia tertinggal helmet atas motor yg parking sebelah motor dia dan dia juga tertinggal jacket dia atas motor orang yg sebelah lagi. Suke hati je kan?
No photos taken at Istana Budaya pasal we were rushing sume org belum solat Asar (btw, the show is from 3.00pm to 6.30pm).
I brought beloved Captain Pandora for sesi photoshoot kanak2 kat rumah Cik Su. All my lil cousins yg cupezzzzzzz gils. Plis. Makan kang!

Na: Eh Nad, Laundry bukak tak on weekends?
N: Mesti la bukak. Takkan weekends nak tutup plak.
Na: Mane la tau bukak weekdays je ke.
N: Lerrrr... Laundry tu weekends la org ramai pegi, confirm bukak nye la.
Na: Ok la camtu, i nak antar tilam bilik i ngan tilam kat depan ni. Dah lame tak cuci.
Oh, awak maksudkan laundry as in kedai dobi rupe-rupenye. Cik Wan Kembang Semangkuk ingatkan awak nak lepak Laundry Bar. Ahaks~! Innocent la sangat!!
“Pernikahan itu hanyalah pintu kepada perkahwinan.” as quoted by Minn, while having dinner at Wendy's last night.
Minn got engaged last 2 weeks, and due to tie the knot by the first week of March next year. So yeah, we were talking about weddings and stuffs.
So back to the quote; pernikahan itu hanyalah pintu kepada perkahwinan. Kenape pintu nak grand, besar gabak, lip-lap segala, kalau rumah tu sendiri belum furnished pon, blom plan nak buat macam mana pon. Meaning there's so much ahead rather than the wedding ceremony itself. Agreed. Totally agreed.
Owh, before I even start going on this, I need to make it clear, I have nothing against marriage establishment, neither do I have anything against family institution. Really. Just the ceremony.
So, as known, most of people out there adopted this policy of “Kawen kan sekali je, once in a lifetime, biar la d'bomb”. As for me, “Kawen tu kan komitmen setiap hari, kenape yang satu hari tu yang kena tabur sume duit aku supaya aku nampak macam drag queen?” Rather than spending RM30,000 on a grand wedding, I'd rather spend it over monthly holidays once I'm married.
Yes, I admit, when I went crazy over saving my money and investments and all, I did said “Nak kumpul duit pasal nak kawen”. But hey, don't get my wrong. I didn't mean targetting RM50,000 in 2 years so I could get a super nice garden wedding or wearing Vera Wang or Tiffany's ring or even Patchi door gifts. Its more off, I need money so once I'm married, I can live comfortably, without being financially dependent on my other half. Kalau tibe2 laki aku kena buang keje, sape nak bayar loan rumah, bayar kereta, bayar bil letrik segala? Nak makan ubi kayu curik kat umah sebelah ke? Ngan tadah air hujan?
I cherish culture still. Adat dijunjung, as said, kan? But religion superseded culture. I'd stand on being a good Muslim a lot more than I would being a good Malay. And I still wonder why Malaysia banned yoga but not those merenjis thing in traditional Malay weddings? I'm no Islam expert but I know both stood on the same platform.
Why do I need to send fancy invitations cards and expensive door gifts when the guests are just gonna throw them away? Why do I need to send Hantaran and all when I can always give gifts to my husband anytime I want? Why do I need to make my wedding memorable to others when I gain nothing from it being unforgettable? What am I proving? Who am I competing with? Apologize, this is not my competition, not my expertise. You can run in your field, I'll run in mine. You won your race, I won mine. Fair and square.
Working your ass off for that one day, spending all your saving on that one moment, putting your efforts to make it your day. If this is how you define celebration of love, I shall respect you by all means. I'm just sharing my thoughts of MY WAY of celebrating love. I believe in simplicity, practicality, and necessity.
Why can't people just get married dan membuat cinta? Why the hassle? Defeats the purpose of marriage institution of simplifying the complexity and lending hands to each other. Blom pape dah bersusah-payah camne? This is like “Bersusah dahulu, bersusah kemudian”. The trouble hasn't even suppose to surface yet.
I stood by my words. Being different doesn't make me wrong.
Probably this is why I'm not married yet (=.=”)
Regardless of these, one thing I still hold onto is an excellent way to immortalize the day, mummified the memories – good photos that is. I swear I'm gonna spend a bomb on the-best- photographer-in-town on my wedding day (If I got married la. Macam takkan je. Damn la.)
Oh, I want dahi licin macam Siti Nurhaliza. Muke tibe2 ade jerawat plak. (Hey, suke hati aku la nak cakap pasal jerawat tibe2. Blog aku ke blog kau?)
I am one big girl with big huge macho camera. But one day i figured that big huge macho camera a.k.a Captain Pandora isn't much of a help for my ever-hunching posture. So I decided to buy myself a new mobile phone with camera resolution as good as high-end digital camera back in 2004.
Ok, fine. I lied.
Truth is, henfon rosak, beyond repairable. Tolong la perempuan kaya kerja dah 2 tahun lebih, pakai henfon passing dari adik perempuan yg kini dah berjaya pakai henfon super canggih. Hey, suke hati la! Ade aku mintak adik ko passing henfon ke? Kakak cantek emo disitu. So, finally. Like really finally. I mean it. FINALLY with capital F, I, N, A, L, L, and Y, Cik Wan Kembang Semangkuk pon akur pada takdir. Mungkin Tuhan lebih sayangkan Motorola tu. Maka, berlakulah pembelian Sony Ericsson G705. Ye, mmg tak canggih pon. Tapi murah. Pffffft.
Maka skrg sedang cuba membiasakan diri mengambil gambar menggunakan camera-henfon-yg-kecik-yg-muat-masuk-clutch-bile-pergi-wedding-rakan2.

Kakak Cantek looking forward for weekend :) Cehhh, drama, padahal everyday is Sunday :p
I have this thing against ugly family potraits. Big time! Looking at a family photo of jom-beli-kain-segulung-kat-Kamdar-dan-buat-baju-untuk-semua-orang-serta-sofa-dan-langsir-kite-juge yang bermuka ketat, sumpah tak reti senyum, with symmetrical arrangements of big brother, mom, dad, second brother, and two sisters at the front - is sickening, it feels like laxatives that makes me go for poo-poo.
Please stop all this crap on family unity. United, close-knitted family does not requires you to wear clothes off the same knits. Buruk kau tau tak? Burukkkkkkkk!!!
And those smiles. Please. Please. Pleaseeee. We are not doing advertising for constipation medicine. Please smile like u mean it. Show some teeth mom and dad. And abang, u are not hired to guard off dad's house or to kick some asshole who tried to court your sisters. Show some cheers dude, it feels like i can see u holding an invisible armour an a machine-gun perhaps.
Sis, could you just for 2 secs imagine Ryan Reynolds, Justin Timberlake, or even Fahrin Ahmad is waving at you? You smile turns my heart into metal. Nothing near melting-my-heart-like-some-cheese-fondue. Ur smiling as if ur seeing Mr. Os and Peter Halier winking at your pretty face.
Also, your camera does not need to be planted on the floor, 180 degrees from your face, attached to non-moving stick. You know why? Because when we look at the photos one after another, it looks super-imposed, as if you use the same background and koyak-dan-tampal muka semua org dan lekatkan di atas background tersebut. Tidak cool sama sekali.
Please ditch those "clusters" family photo too. U know, the one with EVERYBODY cramped into one photo, and all families that bought the kain-sepapan each would cluster at one spot? So you can see all the Blues on the right is Pak Long's family, the Reds in the middle are Pak Ngah's, and Green at the back are Pak Lang's. And still everyone put on their constipated face. Not cool either. Not cool at all.
Wanting to put some photos, tapi tak sampai hati.
I guess its just the raya season thing im seeing a lot of family photos. Its the same feeling when its graduation season - for looking at graduation photos with rak buku palsu. Just worst. Please refer to this.
Ok peeps, ibu bapa dah memanggil2 untuk keluar membeli barang perkahwinan abang tersayang. SiGemukYangCantik needs to pen off.
Syawal weekends are tiring. And filling. And fattening. Especially when we're in Malaysia tanah airku yang tercinta. That includes Friday nite at Bukit Jalil National Stadium watching Verdasco and Gasquet on Malaysian Open quarter final. Takleh random lagi ke?
Saturday was a day of full tank of petrol. A day of sesat jalan the whole freaking day. I've lost my bearing. BIG TIME. I felt numb. Senseless. But yet, I'm glad I went out. Shi's wedding at Putrajaya was all an unplanned reunion. I met all these random people that once was part of my life.
Aisyah, Hasreena from MRSM Kuala Berang
Azwa, Syazana, from MRSM Kuantan
Amalina, Fatin from SMART
Anis, Meera, Ain from Assunta
Owh, and SHI. The bride. My classmate in Assunta back in 1998. Kawan main basikal petang2 kat kuantan, pegi Jabatan Pendidikan (wat the....?!), berenti kat gerai makcik beli pisang goreng yg amat lazat, dan pegi kedai runcit Sri Pelindong beli air pepsi. OMG it has been 11 freaking long years. We're all grown up (well, I was big when I was small. So really, I shrunk). Shi's a complete person with her other half now.
I don't understand how people get married, it looks funny. Watever.
Anyway, Sunday wasn't any less tiring. Off to Bukit Jelutong after Zuhur to Aisyah's place. Another reunion taken place. Perth peeps this time. Miza came with baby Ayden, Zarina is having 3rd baby, and Farah as clumsy as she was ever be. And Aisyah's getting engaged :D Just me now, happily single and rich. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee~!!
Gerak to Aimie's after Asar. This time its cousins reunion. 4 cousins that was studying Accounting all from different part of Australia. SexyHippo from Perth, Aimie from Melbourne, Boy from Brisbane, and Azzam from Tasmania. See, we are all evenly distributed all over Australia. Hehheheh.. And Boy's getting married. Finally! To his long time girlfriend of 8 years, Nisa. And as good as they planned, he's wedding will be on the same day of my brother's; just that Boy's gonna be in Brunei and Hilmee's gonna be in KL. So, makcik2 sila la plan sape nak pegi mane ye.
Had coffee with abang botak at Ali Cafe. I bet org2 kat Kelana Mall dah muntah darah tgk muke I, hari2 lepak situ, kalau tak Old Town, mesti Papa Rich, tak pon Ali Cafe. LIFE'S WONDERFUL :D
Am back in KB now!!
