With Hardship Comes Ease

There's something that is bothering me now. I've been trying a solution to get away from it but until to date, it remains unsettled. Just so you know,  I'm a type of person who will avoid getting into trouble/problem at all cost but this one ... sigh!

Ya Allah, I ask for your guidance & ways to ease my affairs. From you I seek for protection from any hardship. Amin ya rabbal alamin

Wedding Preparation So Far

Assalamualaikum & hi! Jumma mubarak to everyone! May today be another blessed day, InsyaAllah

Since I downloaded a countdown app on my phone, my heart bet a little faster whenever I took a look at it. Today we have exactly 2 months 4 weeks & 2 days left before the wedding. InsyaAllah

Printscreen-ed on 20/11/2014

I know when no. 2 appears in front of the countdown, I will get nervous. Like seriously, where have all those months & days gone? Time flies too fast for my liking & we still have a list of stuff/things/preparation needs to be done

For the record, here is the progress of the preparation so far;

  • Bridal -- Went for the fitting on 30/10/2014. Need to go for another fitting soon sebab tak betul-betul finalize lagi which baju we're going to wear. Still waiting for them to come for the site visit & haven't finalized the design of the pelamin & decoration dalam bilik pengantin. Ok, this one sounds like banyak lagi tak settle homaigoddd but cool cool, I believe they know what they are doing. InsyaAllah everything will turn up good

  • Food Caterer -- Haven't finally finalized (note the adjective) on the final menu (again, the adjective). Need to call the Caterer & finalize everything asap. The thing is, although we have agreed on hiring the food caterer, the Mother still insists of having her friends come & cook some lauk-pauk. Having argument(s) with her is like sending a FB msg to PM's fan page. You can do so but  there's no guarantee that your wish/request will be heard. Ya Allah Ya Tuhanku, lembutkanlah hati emakku. Aminnnn

  • Photographer -- Booked & confirmed but we haven't decided on the venue for the outdoor shooting. Not at the beach I think

  • Kursus Pra Perkahwinan -- Alhamdulillah, dah! Yayy! Both of A.H & I had attended it at 2 different venues, A.H was at Masjid Wilayah, KL on 25 & 26/10/2014 while mine was at Kompleks Islam Darulnaim on 10 & 11/10/2014

  • Invitation cards -- Sent to the printing shop last week & InsyaAllah, will be ready to be collected after 2 weeks which is at the end of this month. They haven't e-mailed me the draft yet anyway. Musim orang kahwin kot sekarang ni, sabar je la tunggu turn

  • HIV Test -- Haven't done a proper study on this (just so you know, I like googling things, even for the pettiest thing. Lawyer-ing skill in my veins :P) but I will probably take the test at the nearest Klinik Kesihatan while for A.H, he can do the test by himself & for himself. Huntunglahh

  • Hantaran -- 80% complete. Ke 70%? But we're almost there.InsyaAllah. Yet haven't decided on the hantaran decoration on the trays. I will just leave them to my Sister. Tqvm! :P

  • Doorgifts -- 30% done, yang ni kena speed up sikit nanti. While others prefer to do them at the very last minute melalui kerahan tenaga berskala besar, I prefer mine the other way around. I do most of the kerja-kerja pen-doorgift-an (excuse the word) alone, hence the need to apply the sikit-sikit lama-lama jadi bukit scheme. I have an OCD, thus the reason why I prefer to do them myself :P Tapi ada juga la nanti kena refer dengan the Mother

  • Marriage Documents -- At first, I thought I will deal with all the process & procedure all by myself, just like other brides-to-be but being a child to the former Tuan Kadhi, it looks like I won't have such opportunity as everything will be dealt by the Father (He was even malas to explain the procedure, "Abah buat semua nanti" was his answer -.-') Ok baiklah, Abah

  • The trays bearers aka dulang girls aka bridesmaids -- I'm actually having some dilemma on choosing my bridesmaid. I already have some names in mind but haven't actually officially asked them yet. And the colour of the bridesmaids' dresses, yang ini pun dilemma jugak sebab belum decide kan nanti nak pakai baju pengantin colour apa. Ok, I have another serious thing to seriously think about now T_T

  • Spa & such -- Non. No time for such luxury yet & due to stress at work & wedding preparation, my already non-flawless skin has become more non-flawless skin. Di harap tak menyusahkan mek andam nanti T_T

  • Persiapan untuk menjadi isteri solehah -- It's subjective :P

Anyway, we're now in the midst of renovating the toilet downstairs & the bridal room (was previously my Sister's before she moved to her own house recently). I honestly can't wait to fully transform the room & make it completely mine!

Still a big fan of white & bright rooms ♥ 

P/s: I do realise that this blog has been flooded with marriage talks & A.H lately. My sincere apology. Hehe!

Protégé Rancangan Deko Deko Bersama Eric

Assalamualaikum & hi! 

I found back my old The Sims 3 cd while kemas-ing my Sister's room last Saturday

Apart from discovering other treasures under her bed *tries not to be judgmental*, this was the greatest discovery of all! Oh, how long I had been longing for you! *hugs the cd tightly* In fact, I was so close to buying a new cd last 2 months dek kerana rindu overload nak main. Nak-nak lepas dapat tahu dorang dah release The Sims 4 last September

I shall seriously consider buying The Sims 4 soon & I already found one shop at KB Mall that sells it. Dengan itu, mek berdoa semoga laptop mek yang berusia 3 tahun itu masih berkuasa kuda supaya dapatlah mek fefeeling jadi protégé rancangan Deko Deko Bersama Eric

Anyway, I know someone hasn't been feeling happy about this. Hehe! Sorry A.H

Getting Married : Kursus Pra Perkahwinan

Komples Islam Darulnaim, Lundang, Kota Bharu, 11/10/2014
I don't know about other brides & bridegrooms-to-be but I felt so relieve when I completed my 2 days of wedding course last October. Like so so so relieved! I guess I was so used to attending lectures & sitting for tests during the uni that I couldn't help but to feel anxious throughout the course. Skema -.-'

Anyway, me & my other 3 friends, Intan, Alia & her sister attended the course organized by Jabatan Hal Ehwal Agama Islam Kelantan on 10 & 11/10/2014 (Friday & Saturday) whjile A.H attended the course on 25 & 26/10 at Masjid Wilayah, KL

Just a group of lawyers, a PTD & a pharmacist having fun selfie at the course. Teehee!

So glad that I had them to accompany me! At least tak de la rasa awkward sangat dikelilingi para peserta lain yang majoritinya berusia awal 20-an. Terus rasa tua ahkak-ahkak yang sudah berkerjaya ni *coughs*

I was told beforehand by the people who had attended it before that the course was boring but I had tried my best to ditch away all the negative thoughts. Hehe! So, what I did; I set my niat right, gave my 100% attention (although at times I failed. Blame the dysfunctional air-condition & noisy guys at the back. Ishk! Oh, and also the hp!), tried to keep as much information as my brain could take & made some notes on the book

Nonetheless, I still needed to wake my brain up a few times though. Can't blame it, it was so much in a sleepy weekend-mode

In my opinion, most of the ustaz & presenters (including one medical officer) were good. Some of the topics discussed might be less interesting but remember, set your niat right! It's for the sake of getting/refreshing your knowledge. InsyaAllah

At the end of the course on day 2, all the participants were given this long-awaited certificate. Perasaan lega dia tu macam dapat tahu final exam's result. Over betui -.-'

Making The Most That We Can

Assalamualaikum & hi!

A.H & his Parents were here in K.Bharu recently, from 28 till 30/10

Although we still have some wedding related stuff pending (like we haven't actually finalized on our wedding outfits. Sobs!), it was his last trip down here before our Wedding in February (InsyaAllah). Since A.H doesn't have many days-off, there's no use of complaining & whining but we are making the most that we can. InsyaAllah

Can't you see that I'm trying to be a calon isteri mithali here? Bahaha!

For the record & our personal reference when we're slightly older *coughs*, here's the recap;

1. 24/10/2014 (Friday) -- A.H officially completed his 4th posting at Paediatric Orthopaedic Department. Alhamdulillah. He was supposed to be on leaves from 25/10 until his next 5th posting at O&G Department on 01/11 but due to some circumstances, he still needed to go to work on 27 & 28/10. Thus, shorter leaves which also equals to shorter days spent in K.Bharu which also equals to banyak benda tak sempat nak settle while he was here

2. 28/10/2014 (Tuesday) -- A.H arrived here around 4.15 pm with his Parents & I was working on that. Treated the tired guy (he was on call the night before & finished his shift in the morning) lunch + dinner Chim Chum at Food Village at Pengkalan Chepa. Both of us are the big fans of spicy food but the sauce was oh so awesome pedasnya! Both of us had a moment of silence sebab pedas sangat nak cakap pun tak kuasa. Lols!

3. My DiGi MobiFi. You may refer to this post

4. 29/10/2014 (Wednesday) -- I was supposed to be on leave but unfortunately the boss wasn't feeling well & we had a court matter before Yang Arif in the morning. Thinking that we don't have much time & there are still some things unsettled plus A.H borrowed my car, A.H tagged along to the court before we continue our mission. Had to wait for about 2 hours & a half before my turn, walhal masuk Chamber 5 minit je. Ginila dik, lawyers are paid to wait -.-'

5. We had breakfast at Kopitiam Kita; nasi gulai ayam, roti titab with milo iced before heading home to fetch the Mother & the nephew, Umar. Tak sempat nak pergi printing shop, maka kad-kad jemputan kosong tersebut are still patiently waiting in the boxes

6 & 7.  We continued the mission, led by the little Boss, Mr Umar. Hehe! Went to a few places before ending up at Baskin Robbins, joined by the Sister in the afternoon. Went to the Sister's new house in Pengkalan Chepa later on before A.H excused himself as he had a family's discussion in the evening regarding the kenduri (The majlis bertandang will be held at his maternal grandmother's house in Wakaf Bharu)

8. 30/10/2014 (Thursday) -- Went to Nurza Wedding House for the fitting in the morning, accompanied by the Mother, my friend, Diha & A.H. It was kenduri season, so tak banyak baju available in the boutique. Nonetheless, they took our measurements & we tried on a few outfits. We fell in love with one persalinan songket, although the colour wasn't even in our list ab initio. Hehe! Anyway, I still need to come again to confirm our outfits (without A.H's presence) & we're looking forward for their site visit to our house soon. A.H & his Parents left for KL in the evening. 

Esoknya, Jumaat 01/11, A.H started his first day at O&G Department. Poor guy, so penat :(
