Girl talk Part 3

Assalamualaikum wahai pembaca dan pengunjung Malaysia di bulan December yang awesome ini =P

ahak ahak ahakk!!

last weekend was my engagement with mr.asfirdaus asri and family. can you believe it?

i'm someone's tunang dah! hahaaha!!

syukur alhamdulillah ='D

on my engagement day, the baju kurung i wore was actually my mother's baju bersanding and it's 28 years old!!! it looks just as new and alhamdulillah i can fit in them. terror kan? so take note girls! make a real decent baju kurung (because it fits any occasion, in my opinion) on your wedding day or any special day so that you can pass it down to your daughters. i'll be wearing my mom's baju nikah on my nikah day as well. ahak! =D
and, subhanAllah, the hantarans.. my mom made them herself! i bought the gifts and she decorated it so beautifully, to the point that some actually thought we hired someone to do it. it's really that gorgeous!!




mom's work of art =')


mom's baju bersanding =)



my cousin, Faressa, did my make up and i loved it. it wasn't heavy and it was just perfect! you can check her out at her blog! i was wearing maysaa cream snood and Calaqisya shawl. have to thank Yana for making them specially for me. =D

as i was getting made up by faressa, and when i saw the watch was showing that it was nearing 3pm, i became ecstatic and restless! terus jadi hyper! kesian my friends, terpaksa layan i. hahaha!



while i was upstairs, preparing and waiting, my family were busy preparing as well to greet asfirdaus's family who some came all the way from melaka and seremban. bless them =')
when they arrived and when i saw satu group pakai purple gelap (their theme colour) terus perut macam buat somersault swimming freestyle flip turn. amboi lah. jadi nervous pulaaakk! hahaha! but it was only momentarily.

after hearing some snippets of balas pantun between my uncle, Babo and Asfirdaus's grandfather, Tok, i was delighted again. they were really funny! i missed the part where they discussed about the wedding dates, hantaran, etc etc but oh well. i was just eager to walk in macam queen towards the pelamin. hahaha! =p

asfirdaus's tok from melaka as his spokesperson =D

the guys in my family clearly entertained by his jokes!

my uncle as my family's spokesperson evidently making everyone laugh (tgk tok as!) hehee! thanks babo!

and so, after everything was agreed and settled, as's mom placed the engagement ring dan secara langsungnya saya menjadi almost-daughter-in-law beliau. teeheee!!!





oh joy ='D

insyallah soon, they will be my in-laws!

all in all, it was a pleasant day. cuma after the whole thing, i didn't mingle much with asfirdaus's family.. i feel bad about it still. i wanted to talk to them but bila dah depan muka, i jadi segan macam entahpape.
i was tongue-tied tak tentu pasal pastu all i did was smile macam kambing mintak penampar and then macam awkward sorang sorang. *facepunch*
i memang ada weakness tak reti nak strike a conversation with aunts/uncles yang tak kenal.. in fact, i memang tak reti nak small talk! if they're above my age group, i jadi gagap.
motif kan? haihhhh.. takpe. i have 1 year to redeem myself!! ahak!

so, all the pics here were taken by Udey and Mukhriz! they made everything look RM1mill worth padahal tak pun! hehe! so do check out their facebook page for more amazing photos and Udey's blog and Mukhriz's blog! strongly recommended!! =D

alhamdulillah, Allah swt had granted a lovely day! everything went well, the food was good, the decorations were amazing, asfirdaus and his family arrived safely to our house and back to theirs, and asfirdaus and myself are now happily engaged!



also, a HUGE thanks to my aunts and uncles, my cousins, my brothers and ultimately
MY PARENTS!
korang memang terbaik!





next:
nikah. a start of a new chapter in our lives. 

before i end this post, here's an AWESOME video which basically summarises the engagement!

thank you all for your amazing support and well wishes!!
i thank you from the bottom of my heart, truly. =')
