Possibly 2008’s Wedding of the Year…

I logged on to my domain, had a look at the statistics and found that the number of visitorship had shot up the roof over the past four days, simply because I believe people expected me to update my blog on Nurul Aini‘s wedding which I attended last Sunday. Or at least give an account of what happened. I wished I could but unfortunately I was down with fever and flu (and am still recovering so there…) during the wedding itself, so I did not have the mood to go round taking photographs or jotting down notes in my memory bank to give a full account of it. Even Syahindah was left at home as she had fever that day. I’m sure some of my fellow blogmates out there have given good accounts of the event, along with well-taken photographs to boot, so perhaps you guys could just enjoy the photographs from there. Sorry to disappoint you. 

Anyway I got wind that some people stole photographs of the event from some of my blogmates and edited it and made it looked as if it was your own… Tsk… Tsk… Please give credit where it’s due even if you did not ask the owner for permission to steal them. I’m sure within the next few days or weeks, my inbox will be filled with forwarded photographs of the wedding and stolen from some of my blogmates, just like how people forwarded photographs of Ning Baizura‘s wedding from Mr Manager‘s blog. Stealing from someone is already bad enough, please at least give that person, his or her due credits for taking those quality photographs.

Nurul & Sofian

I caught the bride whispering to the groom’s ears saying, “Pujangga Malam!!! Pujangga Malam!!!” as I was taking this photograph… Hahahaha…

Back to the wedding. All I can say is I was in awe of the decor of the event on both sides (even though we didn’t spend a long time at the bride’s side as she had left for the groom’s when we arrived, we still managed to go in for awhile just to savour the atmosphere), not to mention the good food (hey, we had Fazana Catering as our wedding caterers over at Aida‘s side) and the number of guests invited. A little part of me wished I could get married all over again (with new songs to sing at my wedding dinner, no less!!! But who would want to attend my mini concert anyway??? Hahahaha…). I believe it was well-planned and well-executed judging by the exhausted-but-yet-radiant looks amongst the family members cos a lot of effort had been put in to make it a success and yes I truly believe it was an excellent job well done for everyone. It’s only February but who is to say this is not the Wedding of the Year already???


We also attended Ed‘s (Khaled & Shazwani) wedding in Bishan on Saturday night, due to our packed schedule on Sunday, which did not allow us to attend. Amazing how I know most of his cousins through the course of life. Heck, his brother almost became my brother-in-law if Fate had been kinder!!! Actually my paternal family and his maternal family go a long way back, being neighbours at Toa Payoh Lorong 7. When we were much younger, we even had mini fights with each other when we visited our respective grandmas. Aida on the other hand, was Ed‘s schoolmate from the same batch at Hong Dao Primary School. This is indeed a small world…

Ed’s Wedding Dais

We didn’t get to take a photograph of the bride and groom but at least this huge tentage of wedding dais made up for it… Kata orang, “Rotan takde, akar pun jadilah…”

The Saturday thingy was more of a relaxed affair as his family members were at the void deck chatting away and Ed himself was entertaining guests. Aida and I were especially in awe of the wedding dais as it was huge. We wondered how much he spent on it and we didn’t dare ask him about it. It really looked very majestic fit for a good-looking couple. Here’s wishing all the newly-weds bliss and happiness as they embark on a new chapter in life. Patience is a virtue and they would do well to remember that this is the most important aspect in a marriage. Trust me, we all get on each other’s nerves at times / most of the time and it’s up to us to maintain that level of sanity by being tolerant and patient with one another…

Well-known on RIA 89.7FM as a controversial and sensational critic able to invoke thought-provoking and sometimes, fiery responses from fellow listeners. Have since evolved into a distinguished blogger of reputable claim with takes on the Malay entertainment industry and football-related matters. Brutally honest and believes in only reporting the truth as I see, hear or experience it. Self-styled critic who does not mince his words and is definitely a non-conformist.
