My recent posts have been moody.. What a way to end things in 2017 here but I did enjoy the NYE gathering my friends planned out for all of us. We decided to go with the event just a week or two before NYE and since it was quite last minute, we had to settle with Empire Damansara, again but this time around, we rented a different unit and it also had a better view.
Since it was one of our first time hosting a big gathering, Zaahira decided to go for ‘Back to the 90’s’ theme and we went all out on it with whatever budget we had.
Finding the correct outfit was such a painful process for me because I wasn’t entirely sure where to draw the line between the 80s and 90s. All denim was people’s choice that night, only Izzat was brave enough to go floral.
I wanted to write more but I decided to go on social media detox, cold turkey. I am a heavy facebook and Instagram user, I deactivated those accounts and currently depending on Twitter. I know, it should be all social media. But hey, I am trying here. Will write more on that soon.
I vaguely remember the day my best friend told me about the girl that he met at Starbucks (because I misunderstood his story) but I do remember the meticulous plan we made to accidentally bump into each other at Pasar Ramadhan after he made me stalk her which I gave instant approval because of how cute she was.
Well, this happened back in 2015; Two days ago, my best friend got engaged to the girl of his dreams and I got to witness the whole engagement ceremony. It was beautiful, I never thought Rama V could accommodate for events!
Anyways, I was particularly excited for this one because after meeting Munirah, we instantly (I think?) clicked! I personally think hanging out with your guy friend’s girlfriend can make a lot of things easier. Like for example, both of us now can discuss what Syahmi does after someone tells him that he/she is on the way because he takes forever to get ready.
On a serious note, Syahmi has been a great friend to me for quite some time now and we still wonder how are we still friends after the amount of times we pissed each other off. I am so glad I asked him to be pembaca doa for our solemnization event eventhough he trembled but dude, it was great. I am so happy for him and Munirah, both of them are really good people who found love at the most unexpected place and time.
It’s a bittersweet feeling to see your friends are moving on to their next phase in life but I am forever grateful to witness your relationship blossomed into something even more special.
To Syahmi & Munirah;
I know we’ve only known each other for a few years but I feel like I’ve known you guys forever. My heart is so happy for both you, I can’t explain how happy I feel but thank you for letting me be part of your big day. I am all tough love on both you most of the time but please know, no matter what happens, I love both of you and please take care of each other. 🙂
My surprise bridal shower was held last Saturday at Sugar Rush cafe and it was a funny one, because my bridesmaids had so many problems getting me out of the house to take my dress from my house (since they were worried that I might show up wearing t-shirt, jeans and sneakers) but Fiza was sneaky enough to ask me to accompany her wedding meeting and coffee session after that. She even asked me to wear make-up but I did not pickup on that.
The set up was amaze-balls! They told me that they were planning a hipster themed wedding but one of them said that I am a bit too hipster, everyday.. So it will defeat the purpose. So they went with a girly-Lana Del Rey themed bridal shower, which I absolutely loved!
To my bridesmaids; Thank you for organizing/planning this awesome bridal shower for me eventhough everyone has their own things to do. I had so much fun and I did not expect one bit of it even though some of you blurted out some things by accident but I guess wedding planning made my brain a bit slow (er than usual). See everyone on the 17th.
So the all girls trip finally happened after years and years of planning when to go, it finally happened! We chose Penang because we wanted the trip to be all about food but we ended up doing a lot of sight-seeing and all of us agreed that we had too much of Penang, not enough food. Which is.. weird since most people go to Penang rarely go back with an empty stomach.
But hey, I got to experience the famous ‘Nasi Kandar Line Clear’. The queue took 15 minutes but the taste, it was worth every second spent queuing up.
I complained about a lot of things for these past few weeks; because I had too much time in my hand until I ended up looking at old photos of me and my friends that I’ve clearly lost contact with. Come to think of it, the friends that I have right now are not the same faces that I used to hang out back then. But today, something happened that made me feel that I may have taken advantage of the good things that I have right now.
This morning, I was telling Farah that she could come over for lunch because I was really feeling like myself. We were texting back and forth the whole time until it got to a point that I felt sleepy while waiting for her, I decided to take a nap. I was in deep slumber when she called and I assumed that she was already waiting outside of my house and to my surprise, she told me that underscoresuff is here with her.
I opened the door and to my surprise, Farah brought pink and white balloon and she was holding a cake box to celebrate my birthday! I wanted to cry but since both of us are (still) quite foreign with our inner feelings, I just hugged her and kept on telling both of them that I have balloons.
I cannot express my gratitude for having such an amazing best friend in my life. She is definitely one of a kind and I am eternally blessed to call her my best friend. She always does this thing where I feel like crying but I can’t because both of us cannot handle feelings with each other. I am going to say this for the third time today, I love you Farah. Thank you for always having my back and always telling me that I am always enough as a person. You are my gem. 🙂
