With the long weekend that we had last week, I managed to settle few things as per Mom-zilla's instruction. I missed out iftar session with the SS girls and I was actually looking forward to meet them last weekend but unfortunately since I'm gonna be on leave 3 days early than the rest of the staff in the Company, I had to forgo taking leave on Monday, today. And here I am sitting in an office with almost no one around. Which equal to no urgent work and hence, yours truly can sit down and blog peacefully.
I managed to meet 3 potential decorators for pelamin. 1 is in Jitra and another 2 are local talents from Perlis. Thanks to E'eda for reading this blog and hooked me up with their contacts or else I wouldn't know. Honestly, pelamin was the last thing on my mind. I had no preferance over which design that I fancied. Like nothing. Yang aku tau I prefer fresh flowers over artificial as they add that exclusive and elegant looks to the pelamin. Dan aku nak single chair. Boleh duduk rapat-rapat sambil beramas mesra dengan laki. Ehem. Lepas tu nak simple tapi cantik. Boleh?
The decorator that I choose was the one that is able to meet up with my budget. Yang lain-lain tu tak mampu akak uols walaupun tambah 2-3 ratus je dari budget aku tapi when you are on tight budget you can't afford to let loose anymore. Dahla banyak je benda sudah lebih budget. It's annoying to talk constantly about budget but what can I do? When you pay everything on your own for your own wedding, then you'll know what I'm talking about. If your parents finance your wedding then you should be thankful and happy and not be a bridezilla. It's just ungrateful.
Mom decided to let the decorator do the bedroom as well in addition to pelamin. Yours truly here wanted to decorate her room herself. I may not be an interior designer but I have my own touch if I focus on it. (Ayat poyo gile) Lucky my mom willing to pay the extra. Nawal, kali ni taktik takde budget ko berkesan. Selalunya mak aku suruh carik option lain je. Ngeeee.
Another item checked off the list. Pheeewwww.
How cute is your mom when she worries over MUA? I had banked in the deposit and secure the date with Kak Ram last week and mom still worry about it. Her questions are always,
- Did Kak Ram knows our house?
- What if he can't find it?
- Make sure he'll be here early. Go and SMS him now.
- What if the make-up turns to be ugly. Eh, you should do make-up trial with him. Got no money? Use my money first then pay later. (Ingat kot nak sponsor..... (-_-) )
Aiyooo mama, like who's getting married here again?
Yang paling comel when your parents talked about their fantasy for their kid's wedding.
- Kita ambik budak kompang. Meriah sikit. (Aku pun tanak berkompang segala)
- Nanti bila nak buat makan nasi temuan? Malam ke siang lepas kenduri?
This shockingly comes from my dad. For those who don't know, nasi temuan ni adat orang Sarawak (mom is Sarawakian, dad is Perlisian) yang dimana, nasi diletakkan bawah tudung saji kemudian ade sorang akan in-charge untuk buka tudung saji tu and the bride and groom akan berebut amik nasik tu dan suap nasi tu ke mulut our better half. I don't know what's the significant behind this practice tapi it's fun to watch bride and groom berebut suap nasi. But it's no longer fun when you're the one that's supposed to do it. HAHA. Any Sarawakian care to enlighten me on this adat?
I am glad and happy for the fact I am blessed with my parents being so liberal, practical and open-minded. Takdelah nak paksa aku buat benda yang aku tak suka. I'm not having any bunga pahar because my parents think that merenjis is so unnecessary. But we gonna have it anyway (albeit a short one) for the sake of other relative yang teringin sangat nak merenjis. They also give me the freedom and let me to take charge of everything. Pasal catering and canopy segala tu je kot yang diorang handle. And oh, AV system jugak. Hmm, tu je kot. But I do occasionally ask their opinion. Takdelah ikut aku je. Macam mom was so not keen on gantung-gantung gambar dekat porch tu. Macam orang cina mati katanya. APAKAH?? It's in trend now ok, mama. I tried explaining that to her with proof from Snippet & Ink, Style Me Pretty segala but to no avail. Guess, she's firm and stubborn like me as well. Hmm. Apa boleh buat, like mother like daughter gitu.
Ya Allah, ticker tu cakap lagi 117 days? Baru je aku tengok haritu lagi 130 days. Lagi 17 Jumaat je kot. *Pengsan*
Nawal, ko berapa Jumaat lagi? Yaya? Lynda? HAHA
