Let me try my best to recap the journey I had last weekend..
Friday evening – picked up the cuppies and wedding cake from SC. Supposed to commenced our journey after work but since too tired form the day’s work, decided not to drive late at night. Syakira was sorta upset at us because we weren’t there to witness her become the bride, legally that was 🙂
Saturday pagi2 – woke up and make a round of wake up calls to Lisa and Rina. Drove to Ampang Park, to change the car with Rina boyfriend *no way Kelisa can win compared to a V6!* Then, started our journey to the historical city dengan penuh bersemangat (tak boleh lawan Lisa though, coz she already put in her oh-so-glam dress! padahal me and Rina still with our tees and jeans) :0
10.30, quick change at Shell before arriving at Syakira’s house. Then, there were we, in her room (I sooo love the bedsheet set-from Dubai-full with beads and lace), waiting for her to get ready. Thanks to the soon-become-BFFs candidsyndrome photographers, Udey and Jijie yang tak putus2 tangkap gambar kitorang (Udey, gmbr cepat2 edit tau! Cannot wait!), we became one cam-whore then.
The foods were awesome (maybe coz we were too hungry, hadn’t eat anything since morning, except for cuppies yang curik2 makan dalam kereta). never in my wedding-diaries I’ve seen that many array of foods (and the selections as well) but it was one nice wedding. With the people playing gamelan as the background music (at times feel like snoring though) and the people yang datang tak putus2. She was wearing a chocolate coloured dress (pictures soon!) ala-ala Arab since the kain itself was bought in Mekah. One pretty bride, I may add.
When the ceremony almost finishes, kebetulan the rearview mirror was broken when we arrived, nak kena carik orang repair pulak. Luckily we got loooots of goodfriends in Melaka, so call Hugo up and we went to his house to pick him up to bring us to one of his friend’s bengkel. At his house, his parent treat us to mee goreng and icelemon padahal kitorang baru je lepas makan tadi kat rumah Syakira. Best la lepak2 kejap sambil borak2 with his parent. Then Hugo brought us to bengkel, unfortunately the rearview mirror cannot be fixed, so we went rearviewmirror-less thruout the journey.
After that, call Syakira up and meet up kat tepi sawah bendang for photo-session with Udey and Jijie. Best la coz the sun already going to setdown, and the view was breathtaking. Really2 cannot wait for the pictures, especially the picture when Syakira throw the bouquet at us ( I didn’t get i though 😦 coz Rina pushed me over to grab the flower, and the bouquet fell into Lisa’s hand-ironic huh?) 🙂
After that we and the photogs settled down at the B&B yang Boy dah booked before-adjoined bathroom pulak tu. Memula ingat nak makan seafood at Umbai (just 5km away from the place) but Syakira insisted on eating at her house as not to waste anymore money, lagipun the lauk-pauk from the wedding still a lot.
After Maghrib, we went to her house, makan2 and gift opening ceremony. I am sooooo menyesal tak beli the coffee-maker coz she got at least 2 other blen*ers!! I asked her would it be okay if I take back the blen*er and change for something else later, but she said that’s okay. But I already said to her don’t use my blen*er for belacan tho! Mine would be use specifically for fruits etc 🙂
Thought wanna go karaoke and walk along the beach, but have to call it a day coz we were damned tired. Zzzzzzzzz very peacefully….
Sunday morning – woke up and had our breakfast in from of the tv. Very nice lodging, Sakinah B&B, should checkout ya, whenever you guys come visit Melaka. Then we went out for a quick beach trip (kene jugak, or else rasa macam tak lengkap je trip tak jumpa laut). The place is actually a jetty to Pulau Besar and just 5 mins away from the B&B. Very nice view and the breeze was so nyaman…
These two ladies, they were very superstitious about snapping pictures of 3, so here goes.. (hehe, people die eventually, dearests)
Then after that get ready for wedding at Boy’s house pulak (actually it is being held at Boy’s family chalet). We were busy putting on make-ups (thanks to Rina who totally do a make-over for me smpi I cannot recognized myself on the mirror!-but I still hate make up tho!) sampaikan terlepas to join the entourage from Syakira’s house to Boy’s. Syakira and Boy made a grand entrance by driving a very old VW Beetle to the wedding. Neat huh? There were RMC people (Boy was one RMCian) and lots of other UiTM faces that we tried very hard to recall their names but to no avail. Heh. Lepas makan, get ready to depart, we hugged her and tears certainly welled the eyes. There goes another bestfriend.. but we know she’s in a good hand coz we know Boy the same number of years as she knows him. And Boy also well aware that we love our dearest Syakira so much, so if anything happen to her, don’t think you can ever run, Boy!
L-R: Leja, Rina, Boy, Syakira, myself, Lisa, Hugo and Nazri at the back
N*zri’s (from previous entry) younger brother, Didi want to tumpang us balik KL, so there we were, leaving our goodfriend behind. Sedih jugakla, and silence fills the air a few minutes. But the funny-man Didi managed to buat us gelak with his spontaneous jokes. We dropped him at Subang and so kelakar masa nak turun kereta he siap salam cium tangan lagi with us, yalah coz his siblings are all boys, so mesti best when she got three sisters at once! We said our goodbyes and promise to hang out soon watching him at one of his gigs.
Rina the driver and Didi the oh-so-patient-fullfiling the driver’s need-copilot
Come back to the house, all I can think of was, after all these 8 years together with him, will she call him abang now? Muahahaha.. Wishing you the bestest of days ahead, KHAIR SYAKIRA & NAZRIL SHAH. God bless…
