This is not an entry dedicated to Mawi and Ekin but this is a round up post of my friends’ and cousins’ wedding that I’ve attended throughout 2008.
Afiq and Syida
Both are my seniors from SMAKL. They got married on 10th February. He’s an active student under Censerve Team. Well, I envied him because he’s in his final semester when he got married.
Abang Boy and Kak Shima
He is my cousin and they got married on 23rd August, a week before the fasting month in Bentong. I still remembered that I was carrying bunga manggar to accompany the wedding ceremony.
He is my cousin and they got married on 4th October (which is also 4th Syawal) at Bertam, Penang. This time, I just helped carried one of the hantaran to the girl’s house. I still remembered that it took more than 4 hours to return to Ipoh after the wedding because of road congestion.
Suraya and Helmi
I did attend my ex-girlfriend’s wedding. She married 3 months earlier and it was a reception on the man’s side. I’m glad that we are still friends. Don’t worry. Nothing bad happened ’cause I’ve already moved on.
Abang Che’e and Kak Lin
He is my cousin and they got married on 6th December, a few days before Aidil Adha. It’s quite tiring because the wedding was organised with the support of the locals and relatives. This time, I was the one who carried the bunga paha to the bride’s house.
When I went to the bride’s house for the nikah ceremony, I asked my sister, is it possible if there is our friend that is related to the bride? Eventually I found that the her sister is studying Syariah in IIUM. What a small world with such coincidence.
Nurzatul Itri & Wan Mohd Syahid
She’s my classmate during my study at SMTKL. She got married on 14th December. I was quite surprised to receive her invitation. But it’s a good thing because me and my classmates could have a quick reunion as almost 20 people turned out.
Oops. I’m not married yet. I always told my relatives that I will have to wait before I can get married. At least there are 5 of my cousins who should get married before me based on seniority. Well, it is all fated. I wish to get married soon as I’ve already started to save some money. Based on these weddings I’ve attended, somehow I’ve found the formula on optimizing the budget for wedding receptions.
I’d like to apology to Hakim (my studiomates) and Sis. Haswani (AKHIans) because I cannot attend your wedding. So guys, congratulations on your wedding. May God bless your marriage and live happily ever after.
In conclusion, I’d like to share the post by Dr. Maza about ‘Apabila Zina lebih mudah daripada Kahwin’ and also ‘Kahwin semasa Belajar‘ from Saifulislam as a reminders to myself and also you guys out there.
