This past week was really packed with stuff and this weekend was no different either. I had to reluctantly ditch my bed on Saturday morning much earlier than my usual weekend standard. Oh BTW you don't want to know my weekend get-up hour. Scary stuff.
Still drowsy from last night's outing for Ami's birthday then straight away hitting the club with my best pal from Dentistry Faculty, Azhar until wee in the morning, I had to get up and dress for a very special occasion today.
My friends and I were going to celebrate a union of a couple. Hunny Madu with her now-husband, Khairul.
So the five of us convoyed from our faculty to the reception ceremony held in Damansara Heights Community Hall. Shortly after we were seated, the bride walked in and sit on the dais with her grandmother, fondly known as Tok Mak.
Minutes later, the groom walked in and had to pass two barricades of family members asking for 'toll' in order to get to his bride on the dais - a tradition of Johorean Malays. Then, Tok Mak gave the bride away and the ceremony started.
The emcee of the day was Zainal Alam Kadir, an Astro host and we were entertained by some of Akademi Fantasia *ehem* stars. The food was great, the place was too and the ceremony was meticulously planned and carried out without any hiccup.
Oh, Ami looked great as her sister's bridesmaid. The whole makeup and how she did her hair made her unrecognizable for two minutes - in a good way. She looked equally beautiful.
A big congratulations to the newlyweds and to Ami and Fird, ehem, when will be your turn? Winks.
