School holidays are meant to be for weddings. Everyone said so. I don't know why people want to choose the monsoon season instead of sunny season for weddings. Malaysia is even hosting Monsoon Cup this month! Or is it because that we're hosting LIMA as well? I mean, LIMA is mostly associated with flying jets - so since most couples are now high in the sky, we coordinate weddings during LIMA to symbolise this sky-rocketing feeling?
Who am I to judge. I'm not even married. I'm not surprise if my parents want my wedding to be during school holidays. My mum is a teacher:)
I received several wedding invitation - and I'm preparing my own schedule. My mum's friends know that I'll be her devoted companion - always at her side. It depends, if my father is attending the wedding, I might not necessary go for the wedding.But sometimes I have to - because the bride or the groom might be a friend of mine. Ibu hates the question, "Sha tak datang ke? Sha kat mana sekarang?" She prefers me to answer the question myself. Thank You, ibu. I just don't like ibu to talk about me in public like most mothers do.
It is not because I'm embarass or anything. It is just because I don't like this phrase of, "Anak aku...bagus ini and bagus itu." I told ibu that the less she talks about me in public, the better it is. Even if we're good, there are better people than us. Regardless whether I'm working as a minister or CEO, that accomplisment should be shared in terms of contribution and not bragging. So, I don't mind if ibu is not acknowledging me in public, because deep in my heart I know she is always proud of her children.
I believe you know that wedding is sometimes a good place for bragging parents:p
Speaking about bragging, there is another part which I think people would love to talk about during weddings: their appearances and properties:)
I always like chiffon but I hate the linings. I love bead work and embroideries. But sometimes there are things which are beautiful but impractical. So, perhaps I'm just going to wear my cotton baju karung (the one in the picture) for practical sunny cum rainy wedding day. It might not going to be that glamorous but it's practical, comfortable if the day gets too hot or wet, considering that I might not going to only one wedding per day:)
Ohh...by the way, you can always visit my flickr photo stream. I just started an album in flickr - but most pictures are from my garden. No personal pictures.
As I told you before, this is a scheduled posting (but fortunately, I managed to edit some of the content today...yeayy!!!) Therefore, I'm not pretty sure about what I am wearing while you're reading this posting. I might be wearing jeans if I'm saying "Yes" for a date:)
Weddings or a date is still a question for me to answer.
I hope I'm as optimistic as ibu who said, "A date for both of you to discuss a wedding."
Please tell me,
If you're in my position, will you go to friend's wedding or will you go for a date?
p/s: internet is now accessible though it is a bit slow. I'm finding time to visit ALL of you but I managed to visit only a few blogs yesterday. I'm sorry...I'll try again later! My eyes are 90% okay:)
