The Wedding Marathon


Last weekend, I went to a total of 6 weddings of friends and family. Yup! you saw that right, 6! From Friday night to Sunday night.

Wedding #1
Who: Kak Sheena and husband, Ikmal.
Where: Keramat Hujung Atas
Time: 8pm, Jumaat malam

Kelam-kabut meeting start at 4. Buat kerja sikit tahu-tahu dah pukul 8. Rush balik, mandi, bersiap ala kadar. Turun bawah tengok dinner dah hidang maka makan dulu laaa. So when I got there, of course kereta dah banyak - had to park bawah bukit and menapak in my clog shoes. Gigih! As I arrived, everyone was walking out for dinner. Didn't get to see the nikah took place but managed to take a picture with the bride and groom!

Wedding #2 
Who: E & Em's Solemnization
Where: Masjid Wilayah
Time: 11am

Technically, I attended the pre-nikah prep coz I was at Eikha's place until 3am with some of the rest, isi bekas telur. Next morning (nasib baik not as a zombie), I went back to her place to be one of the dulang girls. All of us were dressed in maroon attire + gold hijab. The bride wanted it that way. We thought it wasnt pretty. But alas! In pictures it looked great! Thank you Eikha!

E & Em met in Korea. Within a week or so - E who doesn't have any plan to get married (eventhough she had boyfriends previously) - announced to us "I think he's the one". Then she became the giggly schoolgirl mabuk angau bercinta. And when we finally met Em - the smitten schoolboy, we know its gonna happen sooner or later.

Sooner it is. I'm happy for you both. Really.
Thank you Em for marrying E. And E, I believe you chose the right guy who can guide you and make you happy.

(wipe tears kejap)

Em, you don't read my blog but I trust E will pass this to you.
Thank you for putting up with me eventhough you don't really have to. I met you once and didn't even care to make good impression on you. But you made a great first impression. Except for the handbag. I was already teasing you then. Still you went along, and properly, sincerely accepted me as one of your friends.

I don't always feel accepted. But you're one of the rare cases. Thank you. You're a great friend walaupun I belum kenal you lama. That's why I know you will be a good husband to E. Harap2 doa lepas nikah tu mujarab lah. Hehehe.

Take care of each other. Though I don't always spend time with you guys, I feel it when you guys balik Korea. TAKE ME WITH YOU!!!!!

Wedding #3
Who: Lily & Alan's 's Solemnization
Where: Masjid Besi, Putrajaya
Time: 3pm

If you see in the previous pic I dah pakai tudung warna lain, that's coz I am now vain. I taknak nampak pakai same thing for next majlis. So I changed my headscarf and kain, and head to the next ceremony in Putrajaya. This couple have been together since we all started studying in UNISEL in 2008. That's where they met!

The wedding we have been waiting for a long time. Alhamdullah, terikat jugak. Lily is one of my Timah girls, and both Lily+Lalan are my Photo Phamily. Corny name started of in uni coz most of the gang were from Diploma in Photography course. I love both of you. You guys made a pretty hipster couple. Can't wait for little LilyAlan. Senyap2 tapi nakal. Pastu comel. Traits from both parents.

Since the akad nikah took place in one of Putrajaya's attractive mosques, there were some tourists recording the proceeding. Dengan 2 kali lafaz, Alan became Lily's husband. Yang first lafaz dah sah tapi papa Lily nervous so they had to do take 2.

Wedding #4
Who: E & Em's reception
Where: Bangi Golf Resort
Time: 8pm

Right after Lily's nikah, I shot off to Bangi. Nasib baik Putrajaya-Bangi tak jauh. Kalau tak mati jugaklah. E asked Nadzmee and I to be their emcee. We were supposed to do it non formal, fun, laidback chill. Tapi Im not the non-formal type so I jadi announcer. Yang si Nadzmee pulak flight attendant, so he used his aircraft voice.

But truthfully, that night was funny. Nasib baik sorang dah biasa handle guests atas awan, yang lagi sorang dah ada experience run exhibitions.  So we both were multitasking as emcee-AV guy-deejay-runner-floor manager. I hope the night went well (on our part lah) sebab the way I see it nampak okay je semua =)

The night also became a reunion for many of us. I got to see my ex-lecturer, my old friends, update each other on gossips and job prospects! Pastu malam tu sebab exhausted - I crashed the newlyweds room. Maaf. Tapi thanks menjemput. And thanks for the breakfast buffet! Nyumssss!

Wedding #5
Who: Lily & Alan's Reception
Where: Taman Botani, Putrajaya
Time: 1.30pm

Sesudah E & Em check out - I made my way to Putrajaya again. Driving was a breeze sebab Putrajaya area takde kereta. When I got there the bride and groom were already taking pictures with guests. I missed most of the majlis it seems. Ke korang takde bersanding sebenarnya?

Ate good food, the chicken and beef were good! Waited for the rest of Timah to arrive, snap some photos and may I add - the photobooth were ADORABLE! Quite hipster-ish but not very. Just like the couple themselves. By this time I'm already exhausted. Couldn't wait for a complete Timah so I left.

Balik rumah untuk tidur 2 jam. Sebab selepas itu I need to get ready for.....

Wedding #6
Who: Fara & Fai's Reception
Where: Dewan Perdana, RRIM, Sg Buloh
Time: 8pm

Dah penat dah? Imagine me. By this time I really don't want to drive anymore. So I asked for a ride from Arie. Nasib baik menumpang. The place is in the middle of the woods, quite hard to find and scary! The compensation - getting to meet Geng Gitar Lapok! It was nice to see some of them again. More wedding news it seems.
