Ramadhan Diary

By julie"anne at 2:29 PM
It's been half a month! We are halfway through!!

This is the weirdest feeling ever. Well, firstly, this is the first Ramadhan we celebrate as an official couple. Yep. A blessed one. Alhamdulillah. Secondly, after few years, this is the first Ramadhan at home, as in Malaysia. And in this Ramadhan I get to ´know a whole lot different things about his family, which is very nice, indeed.

I am not really good at getting along with people, especially the new ones. But there's something magical about this whole marriage thing. Although I am still very shy and quite quiet, as I normally am around new crowd, but it doesn't feel uncomfortable at all. I feel accepted and it feels like uhmmm.. family?

A day before Ramadhan, we drove all the way to Terengganu and surprised his parents. That was the first time I've ever been to Terengganu. To be honest, there was nothing much, but I liked it there. First day of Ramadhan in Terengganu. I couldn't say it was different in Terengganu. Well, what is normal to me? Haha.

We drove back to KL at 9 p.m. that very first Ramadhan. It was a very long and tiring journey. I slept all the way. huhu. We went to work like zombies the next day.

And then Aboh and Mok decided to go to my village, to see papa and mama and deliver the invitation cards. So we went home last Thursday, after breaking fast. Mok Aboh arrived on friday at 2 p.m.. That was fast.Had very nice couple of days together. The homestay was superb! We ended up sleeping in the master bedroom. (It was the only room) because mok asked us to stay after suhoor. On Saturday after sending them off we took off to KL. Made a few stops, at Kajang, Puchong, Shah Alam (iftar there) and Puchong again before heading home. Even though it was really tiring, it was fun meeting new, friendly people.

And now here we are. Still not knowing what to do for raya. Should we go back straight to Johor, or take a detour to Terengganu, drop Tokwan off and go back to Johor? That sounds tiring. but we'll see.

The solemnisation. June 29th 2013

Lynn: Sekarang nikah pun orang buat pelamin ye?
Lyd: Kalau kenal yan betul-betul memang kena ada pelamin.
Me: hahahaha

Damn! Kalau nak kutuk belakang-belakang boleh? haha. Nasib ada pelamin tau. Kalau tak, cano nak amik gambar eh?

OK. Bismillahirahmanirahim.

I'd like to start with Alhamdulillah. Everything went well. It was a small ceremony. Indeed, but still a blessed one.

Everyone invited are the most important people in our lives. As soon as the nikah is done, I felt a sudden relief. As if 'the burden' I had been carrying around had been lifted.

The food was OK and just enough for everyone. The door gifts were enough for everyone too. This was perfect.

And I thank Allah for this union.

And for everyone else who are not invited, there will be two more receptions. Hope we'll see you there.
