After the endless countdowns to the big day, its finally here!
Woke up for Subuh and had breakfast while waiting for Yaya(PSTBR). I was still not feeling anxious nor nervous. Im taking it slowly and enjoying the moment while being dolled up by my gerek kakak andam. We were right on time for the photographers to take some shots before we leave for my nikah at 10am.
Here’s my before and after. *those dark circles just doesn’t want to go away 😦

We proceeded to the venue and I received lots of good comments for the makeup. Yaya made me look so flawless and glowing!
The nervousness kicks in when I saw the husband was getting all ready for the nikah together with tok kadi, my wali who is my father and the two saksi. The emotions when hearing my father giving me away to my husband is just so surreal. Lucky for me, Yaya taught me earlier on how to cry so as not to ‘destroy’ my makeup.
The unofficial photos from my cousin
Off to second outfit!
My bridesmaids who are my close cousins planned for the hadang and apparently there were 4 gantries without me knowing. hehe.. So he had to eat lime + wasabi knowing that he can’t take in sour and spicy food.
I was so disappointed with my Kompang. The kompang wasn’t loud enough, I couldn’t hear it from where I was seated on the pelamin. Just look at the photo, they were all small boys, Im not trying to say its a bad thing to have them but they were not good enough and in the first place I have specifically told the leader that I want an all adult group. Wells, its just my luck to get this group. Oh! anyways their kumpulan name is Kumpulan Kompang Warisan Utara.
The kecohness continues after the kompang….
My pretty Maid-of-honour and bridesmaids
Of course I have to include this favourite photo of mine! *credit to moh for helping to ‘campak’ my kain high-high
Makan time! See that hungry face…
Off to final outfit… alaaahhhhh.. I hate the baju! Yaya was so kind to help me do my hair although Im not wearing her dress. So she put little flowers on my hair. Didnt manage to have any photos of our final walk in as all my cousins are busy standing at the red carpet holding on to all the poppers! It was a grand entrance I would say seeing their happy faces and having to share my beautiful moments with my beloved family members. We were greeted by my wedding cake and a birthday song at the end of our ‘walk’. Because its my birthday! So much love for them!
Regretted that I totally forgot to prepare a speech. Gave a short and simple speech. BUT i totally forgot to thank my husband during the speech. Till today he would disturb me for that. Oops! And then I got all emotional again and was really touched by my dear husband’s speech. It was a long, deep and meaningful speech which was converse in strong Malay, you know ala-ala bangsawan gitu. hehe.. Everyone was impressed by how good his bahasa is. Cant wait for the full video to be ready and hearing it all over again.
More updates on our second day reception at the husband’s side!
