I (still) feel like the good old self me when I was 17 with 10 years of experience, boleh camtu? I am technically still the same person, with the same fun qualities that I always had (eceh!). My view and perspective on certain things may have change throughout the years but like I said I am still the same ol' Moose some of you may have known since I was 15, 17, 21 or even 27.
I am getting married this year. Which is something new that is happening in my life now. I never actually set any goal or target at what age I am actually getting hitched unlike some of my peers. I am more of a "go-with-the-flow" kind of person. Sure, marriage is always been the topic between me and my fiance since we dated but normally we just brushed it off. To be completely honest, I am actually surprise to get hitched so soon. I mean, it's been almost two years since I came back but I only started working June last year. I thought to myself the soonest I'd probably get married is next year. But Alhamdullillah, my jodoh has come early than I expected. Allah is great though there are times I questioned myself whether I'm truly ready to face the responsibilities of being a good wife and soon a mother. I still cringe whenever I think of the latter, seriously! I may not be the most nurturing person on earth so the thought of becoming a mother is an alien thing to me. Sometimes I look at a mother and wonder how a person can be so protective and caring and loving at the same time? Geez, I must the the tips from my mom or buy any "how to be a mother" books for dummies.
But if Allah thinks I am ready, then Insya Allah I will be ready.
Ok, enough with the useless rants and rambles. What did I do last night to celebrate the fact that I am
Nothing special. At first we thought we wanna check out Papa John's Pizza or Bubba Gump Shrimps in Sunway Pyramid but nothing caught our attention there. Shogun Japanese Buffet is another option but since neither of us feeling THAT hungry to mentekedarah, we settled down for Italiannies. Food was good, nothing spectacular or anything. Both of us ordered their course meal, which offers a reasonably good price to our dented wallet. You can only imagine how planning a wedding can severe your savings. We chatted, we joked and we laughed at each others stupid jokes. Nothing special, nothing extraordinary. Though no present this time around but a wonderful birthday card with honest spelling mistake from my beloved fiance really cures the blues away. I was feeling a bit stressed out yesterday due to work and other stuffs but getting
I received a lot of birthday wishes, through phone calls, SMS, Facebook. Thank you for all the warm wishes and for being so caring. A simple wish from thoughtful friends and families really made my day.
Overall, this year birthday celebration is a simple and quiet one but I am content regardless.
Thank you, sayang.
