Epic Story of a Wedding Gatecrasher

4th April 2014

Attending wedding invitation is an exciting for me to look forward everytime I return home during weekend. But when attending a wedding that you are not technically invited, someone is in trouble! Hihi.

 I have a wedding invitation from a " kakak ofis". Considering her big hearted gestures to me all this while, made it quite hard to ignore. So I brought my Mak to go along with my two little siblings.

                                                            wedding invitation from akak office

It was a hot and super sunny Friday, and my stomach started to growl while we were on our way to the wedding.  The house is in Felda area, with systematic housing, actually too systematic that we can easily get lost in an almost identical housing area. Nevertheless, navigating the area with  little familiarization has caused minor confusion especially with the same theme color of two kenduri in one Felda area. That`s the beginning of my epic story.

I never been so eager in presenting the gift to the bride/bridegroom on the wedding day itself, but after a few times mentally weighing the options, I decided to bring the gift to the bride on her wedding day instead of waiting her to return to office after her marriage leave.

Upon arrival to the house, we went straight to the bride room, mind you, I was so excited to see the bride with custom-made gift in my hand. Just to make it more epic, the bride was taking her shower, so her assistants( or friends or relatives, whatever they were ) ushered  us to wait outside the room. We were hungry thus I put the gift at the designated table and went to the food tent instead.

 The food were so nice that we enjoyed the delicacies very well. I, however, wondered silently why were there no faces of brides' friend present to her big day. Hmm...weird..

Finished our food and off we went again to the brides room, (read; excitedly). But. But. The bride face was even more unfamiliar! 

Okay. Okay.

I told myself to cool down while I racked my mind to feed my denial. 

"Was the kakak co-host her wedding with sister ?"

But the girl's face who was also in red bride outfit ( red color is the "actual bride"'s obsession) in front of me doesn't resemble the "akak ofis" face. Finally I  come to term that we actually attended A WRONG WEDDING! Ha ha!

Next thing, we went to the bride mother, to salam and whatnot like other guests normally do in typical malay traditional wedding. I could see the question mark lingering on her head. STRANGER?!  All I thought was to drag Mak and my sibling away from the wrong wedding as soon as possible. 

Slowly with the most poker face I could muster, I took back the present where I put earlier when one of the guest in the house noticed my behavior, bewildered. That's the stupidest thing I ever done in my life. While guest is supposed to bring in the present, I was walking out of the majlis brought the present with me. How odd was that. ha ha.

I told the confused Mak as soon as we were in the car-safely. Mak laughed out loud, to my lousiness. I was giving up to find our actual destination, but Mak asked my to find the house somehow. It was actually only the other side of the wedding that we went eating. Alhamdulillah, at last, we reached our destination , and the gift reached its actual bride. hi hi.

Reading marathon of 2013

Most of year 2013 was filled with work, work and work. I was stepping into my first year in new working arena. And to make it thriller to a newbie like me, a major shutdown at my platform was held for forteen days stretching through Eid Fitr.

I was having so little time to lay back and relax to do some reading like I always love to do.

However, come end of August when all mind-boggling responsibilities were over(for a while), the urge of having the world of reading all to myself erupted.

Just to get the ball rolling, I borrowed books from an officemate.

Due to work requirement, I went to KL and it was good time to grab a few more books from  Kunikoniya.

I was in the middle of discussion with Boss to relay my intention that has something to do with New Zealand . Boss was amused with my intention,  he shared his insights about New Zealand, and little that I expected, he offered me his book collection on the country. Coolio!

I was a big fan of this intellectual dai'e, Prof Dr Kamil who is currently lives in Madinah. The piece of him is a "must have" for a fan like me. Just so you know, of all books  that I ever read, be it fiction or motivational books,  he is by far the only author that is able to make me shed tears while immersing myself in his writings.

I went to Ausie late 2013 to meet Ju Zie, and she was kind enough to add more books for my collections. Nyums.~

Big Bad Wolf was happening in town, and my colleague was supportive enough to help me get a bunch of books from the sales. It was less than RM50 for these five pieces! I was over the moon~

So I started that to realize that I bloody need a bookcase to cater my so-called books obsession. So I eyed this nice book case from Ikea. I was requesting Ainul to buy before I picked it up while on my business  trip in KL, but I never imagined the book case length stretched the  whole of size of our cars. Thank God it fit well,and was safely "shipped" to Paka.
