The Engagement of Syhrl & Rnny, 220214

The whole day was very chaotic. For one, Abang's nikah was at 2pm, and we were doing last minute touch-up for the dulangs that was DIY. Alhamdulilah, it was done with one lafaz, and my brother is officially a married man.

Rushed back home because Kak Fad (MUA) needed 2 hours to prepare me before Baobei's family came over. It feels so nice to be seated down, and someone does your hair and make-up. Kindda like a princess feeling, but hey! Now I am just looking forward to my wedding day (haha! tak sabar!).

My two little cosuins, Nikki and Adelle, were like standing at the side and peeping the whole time Kak Fad was doing the make-up. Aunty Jannah later told me that the both of them keep coming out of the room to tell their mummies that I look like a princess. (score!)


We got ready almost on time. About 10 minutes before the boy side to come over. Initially I thought the make-up was too overly done, but people kept saying that it looks great. Not sure if they are being nice but I liked how it appeared on pictures though. The boy side had a slight hiccup and came at 6pm. So... girls being girls,

Then, Baobei who was downstairs what'sapp that his family just arrived. So I switched room and sat down, feeling all sorts of nervousness. I was more curious about my ring though because it is one secret Baobei has kept from me over two months? 

The moment the family arrived and outside discussing. Apparently, what happened was the representative showed the ring, the 'hantaran' and the cake, as well as discussed how long we will be tied down, "One year," which then both parties are aware that the date for the wedding is set.

I didn't have a bouquet of flowers to hold because I hate flowers. I actually asked if it was okay if I were to hold shoes instead. So, I make do with Kak Moi's baby boy, Aqeel, as my bouquet. Heh.

The siblings + my new sister, Kak Yaya.

His family.

Two weeks ago, I told people I didn't want to get engaged because it is unnecessary since our wedding is less than a year's time and how that the money we pump in for The Engagement could be used for The Edited Wedding instead. But looking back, I will do this again anytime. The lack of sleep, the rushing through assignments and the nervousness. My colleague, Azri, is right. Girls must experience everything once. The courting, the relationship, the engagement, the wedding, the motherhood.. well everything life has to offer.

I am so glad that we did The Engagement, and I am definitely glad of the man who chose me to spend the rest of his life here, and thereafter. I am thankful of friends who came down early to help me prepare the bunga rampai and calming me down despite a beautiful Saturday.

Above all, I am thankful for my life decisions that brought me to all of these.

Well, 10 months + few days to being Mr & Mrs.
