Another bestfriend is getting hitched. Syahidatul Khafizah, my twin cum counsellor cum schoolday rival cum shoulder to cry on is going to tie the knot next weekend (4th Nov) with the man she truly loves – Etok. Well, there goes another bachelorette friend! Too bad I wouldn’t be able to attend her reception coz I’m going treasure hunting that weekend! (Lumut here we come!). But I already promised her that I’m gonna appear at the groom’s reception, which will be held the weekend after.
Will we have these kinda mind-blowing days again, dear?
Diana texted me yesterday indicating that she is going to get engaged on 11th Nov. I was gonna say that it was such an abrupt decision, since she only dated Shera the Chef less than a year. I’m afraid that she took that decision merely based on the failure of her last relationship with that Fadhil lawyer. But again, who am I to say anything when one’s in love!
Last night, mum reminded whether I have gotten my baju tailored for Cousin Yati’s wedding next month or not. By reminding she also implying the all-time-favourite question: When are you going to even WANT to bother to find a boyfriend?!!
Must admit that wedding bell is ringing endlessly at the end of my eardrums. Wedding cards flew into my mailbox at home almost every week. Friends from school: Jimmy, Sharmini, Eray, Azila and few others are going to get married before end of this year. Why? Does the number 25 means ‘I should get married now or I’ll be cursed till death’ in Hebrew?!!
I am cool with all these commotions, I must say. The one I’m not that cool with are my mum and all the relatives that keep hovering me and keep asking me whether I have someone special or not, or when I’m going to have one, for that matter. Get a grip people! I am not even ready to have a boyfriend yet again, let alone to tie the knot.. There are just so many things to do. My ducks are still not in the row yet! I still need to further my studies, I still have not sit on that plush seats that pays me good bucks, I still have not buy that dream house of mine, I am still driving that darn Kelisa and I haven’t even conquer half the globe!
I know I may sound skeptical about this whole marriage thingy. Many uttered that who says you can’t have it all when you’re getting married?? Owh ok.. I agree with that too. But is it my fault that I have still not find a guy that tailored to my needs yet? I am not too picky, it’s just that I’ve learnt so much (owh, trust me, u have no idea how much!) from my previous mistakes.
I used to want to get married so badly. I always know that I am going to get married real early, have a beautiful and adorable daughter at that very young age (ok ok.. cut that Gilmore Girls commercial ok?) and I always thought that I am super ready to lead a life as a housewife. But, once you be defeated in that love-battlefield, you just feel that your spirit have been taken away along with the love that gone. Now that I have been given a second chance to undo my mistakes and do things all over again, the way I want it, there’s no way in heaven I’m gonna repeat those stupid mistakes.
So mum, aunties and uncles, syyesyyy… and please get off my back! I will get married, sooner or later. Trust me.
Ps: Owh.. and by the way, by sooner, I mean age 30.
