Happy 4th Anniversary to the love of my life

For our wedding, we didn’t have a wedding montage, but we did have professional videographers who recorded the whole event. We ended with 12-miniDVs each running for about 3 hours. We never really got through watching the second tape even, so this year, I got this made as a surprise for the husband 🙂

To all those who attended our wedding, and especially friends and family who sacrificed their time to help make our wedding a success, a thousand times thank you.

To the love of my life, with all my heart, till the end of time…

The story of Adilah and Hasril

Yesterday was Adilah and Hasril wedding reception (one of many, heheheh) and I was honoured to be their emcee for the night.

Throughout the merenjis session, I shared with the guests anecdotes of how Adilah and Hasril met.

I thought I’d share their cute little story here as well 🙂

* * * * * * * * * *

Let me tell you about Adilah and Hasril’s story. The first time they met was at Empire Shopping Gallery. Adilah was taking a little stroll at the mall when she noticed Hasril standing and staring at her. Strangers then, Adilah found it a little bit creepy. They bumped into each other again, and Hasril just couldn’t stop himself from staring at this gorgeous young lady, and Adilah, well.. in her own words “buat bodoh je”. (Translation – non chalant).

Hasril couldn’t get Adilah off his mind. He told his best friend that he’s found someone he really likes but has completely no idea who she is. His best friend, decided to go on a “girlfriend” hunt for Hasril ( since he wouldn’t stop talking about the mysterious girl for three days straight) and started to go through the best match making website there is today: FACEBOOK.

After browsing through the many single girls in the list, Hasril’s best friend came to him and said “I think you’ll like this girl, she’s my friend’s, friend” and showed him the picture. Angels sang and rainbows appeared, Hasril’s heart burst with joy as he exclaimed “That’s the girl I’ve been telling you about!”

Hasril went on a mission. He was intent to have Adilah as his wife. First though, he had to win Adilah’s heart. Unfortunately, that didn’t come easily, because Adilah didn’t seem to notice! After months of wooing, Adilah finally saw Hasril in a different light, during… a shopping trip. So yes Hasril, you know the trick to win with Adilah is by ending your sentence with “OK, just buy it dear”.

So the story continues… They dated for four months and for the first time in her life, Adilah felt like she has found THE ONE. Everything seemed to fall into place and when Hasril asked if she would like to spend the rest of her life with him, she just couldn’t say no.

But the challenge was not over yet. Hasril had to face ENCIK KHAIRUDIN RAHIM. The main man!  Adilah was extremely nervous when bringing Hasril to meet her father for the first time because “Bapak tu macam garang ngan eksyen sikit”. Translation… he’s quite fierce and doesn’t suffer fools gladly.  But as they met, ate dinner and talked, Khairudin warmed up to Hasril and didn’t show the slightest bit of his “garang and eksyen” side.  In fact, he soon went ahead to book this very hall!

And the rest, as they say, is history. Here they are today, husband and wife. Hasril, a charming young associate director and partner at a digital communications and design agency, well liked and loved by all who know him and Adilah, the stylish fashionista heading her very own boutique, the darling of everyone’s hearts. With the blessings of their parents, friends and family, may Adilah and Hasril be blessed with good life, great health and trains of beautiful children to come.

Adilah and Hasril, congratulations once again, and I hope you were happy with my emceeing! Please forgive me if there were any tersasul-sasul here and there 😀

*hugs*

My best friend’s wedding

Note : This post has been sitting in my draft folder for so long! I finally got permission to use these pictures so yayy!!

My best friend is married. I now have to share her with a man. *cry*

On the 24th of June, one of my soulmates a.k.a best-friends-forever-till-the-day-we-lose-all-our-teeth-and-die, was married to the one she loves. Azlynn, is more a sister to me than a best friend. We’ve been besties since we were nine. We went to primary school together and when we were split to different schools (they built another primary school in the area), we still spent weekends at each other’s houses. We went to the same high school and faced the crazy bullying, the cat fights and the exam oriented school system together. We went to the same university, and ended up as roommates. We went through numerous hook ups and breakups, and were always each other’s shoulder to cry on.

Finally, she has found the one that promises to bring out the sun, even when dark clouds threaten a heavy storm.

I was so happy when the wedding day came, words could not describe it. Me and our two other besties (Babes and Chick) were there till late night, helping wherever and whenever we could. We were just so happy to be part of this absolutely joyous occasion.

The next day, for the nikah, we were there bright and early too! It wasn’t my wedding but heck I was feeling the jitters as well! Alhamdulillah, all went well.

Yaaayy!! Title changed to Mrs!!

The next day was the reception, I was only supposed to be an usherer but I came for the rehearsal anyway 🙂 Babes was the bridesmaid so most of the time I sat with her to keep her company. It was so surreal watching my best friend that day. It still didn’t sink in that there she was, a beautiful bride. In between rehearsal breaks, I chatted with Babes on how lovely it is that our darling friend is now married to her heart’s true love 🙂 Then came the time for them to rehearse their walk down the aisle.  So everyone involved piled on outside the hall and took their places. I sat inside the hall and watched. One of the performers (an elderly man with superb talent) played Shania Twain’s “From This Moment On” on his violin. The lights were dimmed and the bride and groom walked hand in hand into the hall.

Though they were in t-shirt and jeans, and the hall wasn’t even fully decorated yet, both bride and groom were beaming. As I watched my friend steal loving glances at her newly wedded husband, I cried. I couldn’t help it. I’ve seen her go through so much, been there to pick up the broken pieces time and again, and to see her finally find absolute happiness, I couldn’t stop my tears from flowing.

Side note : Dear Azmi, thank you. For being the one to lift her up when she was crumbling down. I know I haven’t been that nice to you but it was only because high school leaves permanent mental scars and I’m very protective of my best friends. So, I apologize for being difficult 😀 Again, thanks, for finding her lost smiles and laughter.

That night, during the wedding reception, she looked more beautiful than ever.

The gorgeous bride, getting ready for her grand entrance

About to enter the hall, and there’s me at the back, trying not to cry again

Love this picture, simply lovely

The crazy lot that crashed the wedding. Ok la we were invited. Not crashers 😀

Congratulations Dillot 🙂 May you be blessed with trains of beautiful children! We love you so much!

Soulmates!
