of JB Bridal that caught my 'sepet' eye

lame nye tak update!
anyway, byk yg dh terjadi over the weeks
tapi i just couldnt find the time to update here
but sooner or later, I will
especally on Our Big Day preps
I nk nnt, bile dh kawin,ade anak (InsyaAllah)
I can come back here
and read back all my rants

ok!
I'm sure I have not mention that
yeap. we did sealed a deal with a planner
after all the survey, turun naik butik here and there
pegi yg jauh, yg konon femes and all

at the end, we settled with the one yg dekat je ngan umah
not really one of the top bridals in JB
but I did fall in love with their masterpiece
bile nampak satu pelamin on a fotopages
the thing is, i tak suke pelamin yg sarat dgn bunga here and there
i'd prefer it simple
and this particular one, caught my eye
gigih i mencari sape la vendor dia
dh jumpe vendor, contact lak tak jumpe
coz somehow, they don't have any blog nor fp

so, i pegi sendiri...
nasib laa ade org tau 
after all, seeing is believing kan
first time pegi....tutup
the thing about bridal in JB, diorang kol 8 or 9 mlm dh tutup dah
weekend lak, of cos la bos nye takde kan
dok wat wedding sana sini

dh la i ni keje
takkan nak amik cuti semata2 kan
nasib la my sis sgt bersungguh
dia laaa yg dok push i gi survey bridal2 ni semua
every night ok...ade la for 3 weeks kot
ade je bridal yg dia heret i
kalau takde diaa...kompem laaa ape pon tak gerak
adik dia ni...pemalas gileeeeeee
i mmg mls gile nk survey2 ni....
tapi nk yg best2...bole?

eh...dh merapik byk
ok anyway, mase first jumpe the owner, ni.zam kt butik dia tu
i dh rase best...
u know, mcm ade 'click' gitu

btw, bride-to-be, any first instinct,
be it good or bad,
please do take into account k
kalau dh rase cam lain mcm,
rase cam org tu auta je lebih
trust ur guts than their words!

so after dh bincang itu ini
they have this wonderful 'pengantin-lenggang-kangkung' pakej
of course that's the name that I yg bagi
bukan diorang ye....
why????

well, in their planner pakej,
dh include semua...SEMUA ok!
except for kad kawin je
yg lain semua dia dh include in the pakej
dr pelamin, to photographer, to MC, to kompang
to khemah and food for nikah, to inai to of coz foods for reception
to hantaran deco, to wedding kek, to door gift!
but for the doorgift, maybe we have to tambah duit to get a 'better' gift
maybe laaaa...tgk ade 'fund' lagi tak...hehehheh

neway, bile balik tu,
citer kt mama dgn penuh excited gile!
mama pon cam teruja
cam tak caye ade bridal yg offer such a complete package
but when ayah tanye how much, terus kecut
ayah doesn't agree
paham2 sendiri laaa kenape yeee


pas tu, terus laa ke sana sini lagi
survey bridal
tapi hati ni, tangan ni, mata ni
asek la dok belek kertas yg bridal yg i berkenan tu
and one fine evening,
out of the blue, mama suruh I call ni.zam
mintak dia dtg umah
so that mama and ayah leh dgr sendiri
what they have to offer and all

I wondered why
later I found out, ayah did ask around
tanye kawan2 dia yg penah wat majlis
how much they have to spent overall
and ayah did come to his sense

mmg la bunyi mcm byk
sbb tu price for lump sum kan
tapi kalau kita amik sikit2,
eg: amek pelamin ngan A, photographer B, caterer C, etc
nnt later on
bile sum it up, it will come to the same
or even more!

so on 2nd June,
ni.zam and his crew, came by to our house
my my, the discussion went extremely well
my parents love them
I mean, his PR laaa
the best part, he is a HE, and remain as HE
takde rupe mcm nk ke SHE pon
mind you, my dad is an IMAM...so bende tu penting ok!

a week later,
exactly on Friday,11 June (exactly 6 months before my BIG day!)
while in office
mama called, suruh i sediakan duit
and call ni.zam
to seal the deal
what a great day to decide on the most important part of our BIG day
happy nye.....

but not until next monday
again, ni.zam came by
bincang2 lagi
semua agree, semua ok....
bayar deposit
and then, I have a wedding planner!
yeay!

rase cam segala beban dh terlepas sikit
but of cos, I can't let him decide and do everything blindly
i'll be expecting updates on the progress from him from time to time
harap2 semuanya berjalan lancar

I'm not expecting an elaborated, grand, over the top kinda wedding
just a simple yet sweet wedding
which suites my 'tiny' budget
ape pon, I did hope for the best!

but one thing that I should be worried of
is I have to remind him of the certain shades of purple that i prefer
I did showed him, the sample
harap2 dia dpt laaa ikut
tapi kalau it turns out it is not the shade that i one.......
haih...REDHA laaaa fana....

a mistake

is not when u fall in love wholeheartedly
but when u did not try wholeheartedly to keep the spark

A Wife Tears

Jika seorang isteri menangis dihadapanmu,
itu bererti dia tidak dapat menahannya lagi…

Jika kau memegang tangannya saat dia menangis,
dia akan tinggal bersamamu sepanjang hidupmu...

Jika kau membiarkannya pergi, 
dia tidak akan kembali menjadi dirinya yang dulu, selamanya!

Seorang isteri tidak akan menangis dengan mudah,

kecuali didepan orang yang sangat dia sayangi, dia akan menjadi lemah!


Seorang isteri tidak akan menangis dengan mudah,

hanya jika dia sangat menyayangimu.

Dia akan menurunkan rasa EGOnya.



Wahai suami2,

jika seorang isteri pernah menangis keranamu,

tolong pegang tangannya dengan penuh pengertian.

Kerana dia adalah orang yang akan tetap bersamamu sepanjang hidupmu disaat

kau terperuk terlalu dalam …



Wahai suami2,

jika seorang isteri menangis keranamu,

tolong jangan menyia-nyiakannya. ..

Mungkin, kerana keputusanmu, kau merosakkan kehidupannya.



Saat dia menangis didepanmu, saat dia menangis keranamu...

Lihatlah jauh kedalam matanya. Dapatkah kau lihat dan kau rasakan SAKIT

yang dirasakannya keranamu ?



Apakah keistimewaan perempuan ini?

Dibalik KELEMBUTANYA dia memiliki kekuatan yang begitu dahsyat..

TUTUR katanya merupakan KEBENARAN...

SENYUMANnya adalah SEMANGAT bagi orang yang dicintainya...

PELUKAN & CIUMANnya bisa memberi KEHANGATAN bagi anak2nya...



Dia TERSENYUM bila melihat temannya tertawa..

Dia TERHARU, MENANGIS bila melihat KESENGSARAAN pd org2 yg dikasihinya. ..

Dia mampu TERSENYUM dibalik KESEDIHANnya. ..

Dia sangat GEMBIRA melihat KELAHIRAN...

Dia begitu sedih melihat KEMATIAN..

TITISAN air matanya bisa membawa PERDAMAIAN.



Tapi dia sering dilupakan oleh SUAMI kerana 1 hal…

Bahawa “Betapa BERHARGAnya dia”…


p/s: got this from FB...just 2 cents to share with others....

Solat Istikharah

For a muslim, mesti ramai yg tau psl Solat Istikharah ni kan
biasanye, solat ini didirikan bertujuan utk meminta petunjuk
baik dari segi jodoh, kerja, mahupun sebarang keputusan dlm kehidupan

how to do it?
meh i share serba sikit ape yg i tahu
kalau ade yg salah, correct me k

solat sunat 2 rakaat ni boleh didirikan tak kesah siang atau malam
tapi of course, kalau nk lg afdhal, buat lah mlm
lagi afdhal, dibuat 3 malam berturut2
Wallahualam...

1. Baca niat Solat Sunat Istikharah
 Sengaja aku mengerjakan solat sunat istikharah dua rakaat kerana Allah Ta'ala

2. Ada 2 cara
       Cara Pertama
  • Rakaat pertama, selepas Al-Fatihah, baca ayat Kursi 7 kali
  • Rakaat kedua, selepas Al-Fatihah, baca surah Al-Ikhlas 11 kali
      Cara kedua
  • Rakaat pertama, selepas Al-Fatihah, baca surah Al-Kafirun
  • Rakaat kedua, selepas Al-Fatihah, baca surah Al-Ikhlas

4. Pada sujud terakhir, sblm bgn, baca doa ni, 40 kali
     سُبْحَانَكَ لاَ عِلْمَ لَنَا إِلاَّ مَا عَلَّمْتَنَا إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْعَلِيمُ الْحَكِيمُ

Maha Suci Engkau. tidak kami berilmu melainkan apa yg Kau ajarkan pada kami. 
Sesungguhnya Engkau Maha Mengetahui dan Bijaksana

5. Selapas baca 40 kali, niatkan dlm hati, ape yg dipohon...jgn disebut melalui lidah tau! dlm hati jeee

6. akhir sekali, after salam, baca doa ini



"Ya Allah, saya memohonkan pilihan menurut pengetahuanMu dan memohonkan penetapan dengan kesuasaanMu juga saya memohonkan kurniaMu yang besar, sebab sesungguhnya Engkaulah yang Maha Mengetahui dan saya tidak mengetahui apa-apa. Engkau Maha Mengetahui segala yang ghaib. Ya Allah, jikalau di dalam ilmuMu bahawa urusan saya ini........baik untukku dalam agamaku, kehidupanku serta akibat urusanku, maka takdirkanlah untukku dan mudahkanlah serta berikanlah berkah kepadaku di dalamnya. Sebaliknya jikala di dalam ilmumu bahawa urusan ini buruk untukku, dalam agamaku, kehidupan serta akibat urusanku, maka jauhkanlah hal itu daripadaku dan jauhkanlah aku daripadanya serta takdirkanlah untukku yang baik-baik saja dimana saja adanya, kemudian puaskanlah hatiku dengan takdirMu itu." 

* baca tujuan solat sendiri pada ....



ade yg kata, petunjuk itu akan dtg dlm mimpi...
but the thing is,
setiap kali after solat, i akan cuba tidur
dgn harapan Allah akan beri petunjuk like...immediately
tp mcm mane nk mimpi, kalau tido pon tak bole
sikit2 i akan terjaga
and mule terfikir, eh...tadi ade mimpi pape tak eh?
kalau dh selang stgh jam asek terjaga,
mmg takde la mimpi ke ape
paranoid je lebih

so i started to google
and I found this
ni I quote sikit

Mimpi itu bukanlah satu-satunya jalan yang memimpin manusia kepada petunjuk Allah s.w.t. Kadang-kadang petunjuk Allah Taala datang melalui buah-buah iman yang masuk menyerap ke dalam hati sehingga menerbitkan keyakinan dan rasa hati yang kuat melalui keyakinan untuk memilih salah satu di antara beberapa pilihan. 


baru lah I faham
therefore, ape yg penting is, hati kite
listen to what ur instinct is telling u
it may happen at the moment when u least expected it
so, watch out!


for more info, google je!

of being engaged

one thing I realised about myself since we got engaged was
I makin penyabar
makin tu tak bermaksud SANGAT yea

just that takde la seteruk sblm ni yg sikit2 je nk melenting
bende kecik pon I nk melenting
ade je bende nk jadikan pergaduhan
pastu merajuk lama2

nasib la myPerson ni jenis cool sikit
dulu mmg la dia layan
bile i merajuk, dia akan pujuk

tapi dh lama2 tu, bile i mule nk angin je
dia terus wat dunno
he expected me to cool off myself
kire musahabah diri laaa

but now, dah kurang
yeap, maybe I masih tak dpt control myself
bile things doesnt turn out the way I wanted it to
tapi I cepat cool
bg i 5 minit, i dh mule pikir rationally n dh nk baik2 dh
taknak gaduh lame2
rase cam membazir gile mase tu nk abes kt gaduh2 ni
kirenye muhasabah tu, prosesnye cepat sikit

ye la kan
laut mana yg tak bergelora...eicewah
hubungan mane yg tak diuji
lagi2 ni tgh darah manis (kononnye)

bile dh gaduh tu, jgn asek dok pikir sgt bende yg buat marah tu
try tu set sometime off from ur surrounding
cube pikir kan bende lain
cool off by reminiscing the good times
it does help


the key is, berbincang
ape je yg tak kene, bincang
dont judge immediately

the thing is, the trust and perasaan tu yg penting
if we already set our heart to someone,
no matter what happened,
at the end of the
sblm tidur, dia jugaklaaa yg kite dok teringat2

dear,
thank u for being u
thank u for putting up with my nonsense
thank u for accepting me with all my flaws
I love you.

Another 'Fruitful' cuti

this was last Tue (8/6)
ade appointment ngan dentist aritu
nk cabut jahitan
awal2 mmg dh btau myPerson
and it's very sweet of him to amik cuti and temankan i

well, that's not the only purpose of us took the day off from work
byk yg dpt kami settlekan aritu
syukur

first off, he came by at 7.30,
terus shoot ke Pekan Rabu
wat his passport


lame gileeee, as expected
the whole morning habis kat imigresen je
but those 4 hours, tak terasa sgt when u're accompanied by ur loved ones


provided u had the best seat
which is at the back,
and boleh sandar senang lenang
ngeh

settle wat passport
had our lunch
something happened mase lunch
somehow, I have to be 'mengade' sbb takleh makan sembarangan
since tooth extraction, I blom pernah mkn solid food
aritu pon mkn nasi dua sudu and kuah sup yg berlondang
lenyek2 nasi tu, then baru mkn
i dah tahap say NO tu bubur
bosan!


next, off to Pejabat Agama

to get our borang permohonan nikah
we had to wai awhile as diorg bukak kaunter 2.15
so tunggu dlm 15 minit
all in all, settle...no fuss


dh beli borang, singgah balik Pekan Rabu
to collect his passport

next, ke Klinik Kesihatan kempas
for HIV test

boy, it was a jiffy
within 20 minits, settle
kejap je
alhamdulillah...

by then, dah kol 4
i haven't go to the dentist yet, remember?
gamble, pegi je
smpai2, dh kol 4.20
hospital tutup kol 5


i wat cerita sedih, bodek2 sikit
yes....they accepted me
lagipon nk wat STO je
n yes, within 5 minits, I'm done!

by then dlm 4.40
received a call, regarding a very important part of our future
syukur alhamdulillah
semua ok
but we need to go there to settle the other parts
off we went, and voila,
another mission accomplished
before we went back,
had our favourite naan cheese near JJ...
my first ever solid meal ever since 2/6...sedap!

alhamdulillah
dpt wat passport, beli borang nikah, wat HIV test and stitch off
all in one day
syukur.

Castle

not as in Castle - Istana
but the TV Series
sort of CSI
tapi not as serious as CSI laaa


btw, I didn't really follow
just happened to watch one of the epi the other day
and a line by Castle's daughter caught my attention
a line she blurted when her bf did not turn up for their movie date
but got hooked up with computer games instead

"Why do guys have to justify their wrongs instead of just simply say sorry?"
(not exactly word by word, but that's what she meant)


am not gonna elaborate
but it is kinda true, ain't it?

anyway, it does not only apply to guys
but to girls as well

and to me too...
kenape eh?


Elton, I guess Sorry does seems to be the hardest word.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

This morning, I went for the above procedure

How was it?
Honestly, the procedure itself, tak sakit pon
as it is a minor surgery,
local anesthesia is involved
tapi masa dia jab tu, sakit la jugak
asek dok cucuk je kan

but its all worth it (i mean the jabs)
coz it will numb the whole area
as for my case, the whole right area of my mouth is numb!
rase bengkak semacam je
so mase dia dok cuba nk pull out the tooth tu,
tak rase sakit
ape dia buat pon i tak tau
dok pejam mata kuat2 smpai taksedar air mata dok leleh,
tangan pon dok genggam baju smpai renyuk gile
ntah la...bukannye sakit
tapi the sound of all the whatever yg dia pakai tu
it really sounds.....painful!

Alhamdulillah
I did manage to calm myself throughout the procedure
setakat time bayar bill, amek ubat
sume ok lagi
tp dlm kete je, I started to feel lightheaded
sampai umah, cepat2 mkn ubat (antibiotics and pain killers)
the bius mcm dh nk hilang
mule rase sakit kepale and denyut2 kt gusi tu

darah, toksah cakap
kalau tadah, mau secawan darah dapat
the thing is, I tak boleh baring or sujud
I realised, everytime i bgn dr tido or after solat,
darah membuak

gauze yg dia bg dh laa sikit
nasib ayah volunteer nk g beli kan
for now, masih berdenyut
tapi I bole tahan

yg tak bole tahan...LAPAR!!!!
last meal I had was karipap at 10am this morning!
mau nye aku tak kebulur!
tapi takut nk makan....
ni makan ubat pon rase darah...
bluerghhhhhhhh

harap2 la bleeding ni temporary je
lagi bagus kalau esok takde bleeding lagi
at least i can have yogurt drinks
takdela kebulur kan

btw, I'm expecting myself to shed off 2 kilos!
ngeehhhh...
so much of looking thing from the bright side!
harap2 bole!

oh..did I mention I'm on medical leave for 3 days?
sabtu cuti, ahad cuti
5 hari dok bongkang!!!
yeayyyyyyyy

tapi 8/6 ni kene dtg balik
bukak jahitan
and maybe, if i'm brave enough,
i'll pull out my top wisdom tooth pulak
tgk lah mcm mane nnt
tp base on hari ni,

TOBATTAKNAKCABUTGIGILAGI




p/s: I'm waiting for someone to come by mlm ni...sbb dia ade mention nk dtg...tapi, mcm tak akan dtg je....hmmmmm..let's see..
