sha in love: a wedding or a date


cheryna's baju kurung

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."

So friends,

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:)

Lan Bingka said...

go for a date at friend's wedding...huhu

Pocket said...

owh! i'll be asking u to go to the wedding sis, cause i dont want u out on the date. but then again my proposal is bias.
for i 'do' have hidden agenda's

it is normal for mothers to brag about their children.. this is because it is an achievement above anything else.
'I manage to train my kid to play chak with me'
'i manage to train my kid to wave'
'i manage to arranged it so that my daughter married a CEO of selkom'
now who wont go into 'cikbok mode' if one have such lovely daughter.
regardless of such comment above, i dont like it it just like u hate it sis. cause she might be sending a wrong info to the public, an info that i wouldnt like people to wrongly perceive.

so its weekend yes sha...
gi kenduri yer... pakai baju kurung
gi kenduri yer... gi ngan mak
gi kenduri la yer... n tangkap gambar pengantin

Yunus Badawi said...

Pakai aje baju kurung tu. Kalau pergi dating dgn baju kurung pun apa salahnya. You look more beautiful and sopan wearing it.

Thanks for visiting my blog yesterday though I know you were pressed for time.

Have a nice weekend.

Tie said...

Kalau orang dah jemput, kita kena pergi kecuali atas sebab2 yang tidak dapat dielakkan.. Mana tau esok2 hari kita, tak de siapa yang sudi datang, hu hu...

Dating ? Ajak dia datang sekali...hehe...

ashley said...

Kalau saya?
hmmmmmmmmm
kalau saya, tengahari around 12tunjuk muka kat wedding sebab dapat makan free.

Petang around 3pm, boleh lah buat appointment lain..

Kita kan ada 24 hrs perday!

Cik Biol said...

ajak dating kt kenduri tu hahaha

t.a.c.a said...

date or kenduri??

if i have to choose.. i rather go for a date...

tp kalau g dua2 boleh kot... bukannye nak date sampai 24 jam kan?

lagi pun memenuhi jemputan tu kan hukumnya wajib... nabi kata kalau puasa sunat pun disunatkan berbuka untuk memenuhi jemputan org..

sya said...

ha ah, dating terus kat tempat kenduri, ok?
hehehe..
suka juga baju cotton... tapi, kadang2 macam seksi.. hehehe

~Kak AZZ~ said...

akakpun tak suka kalau mak asek cerita hal akak kat orang...tak kiralah psl baik or buruk...Bg akak, selagi akak tak amek tau psl anak/fmly dorang, dorang jugak tak perlu amek tau psl akak kecuali atas sbb2 yg munasabah/perlu je(like sakit etc)....Boring kalau semua benda dorang nak tau....even dividen dlm asb pun dorang nak tau, so sng dorang nak buat kira2...dasar bizibodi betol...huhuhu...

kalau kenduri kawan biasa tu pergi je la...tp kalau kenduri ex-bf....better u stay at home layan Jenab dan Fernando...huhuhu...

manje said...
