More affairs in May and June

Now where was I? Oh yes, Part 2 of my affairs in May and June.

So I stopped off at Nadia's wedding reception that fell on a Thursday. To continue on, we have a double wedding celebration! Remember that cousin of mine who got married? Well, he is the younger of two brothers who got married and had their reception on the same weekend. After the younger one has been a married man for about a week, the elder brother tied the knot on Friday, 5th of June. I didn't get a chance to witness the akad that Friday night but I was there full force from Saturday onwards.

Buffy and I started from KL to Hippo that Saturday morning to make it in time for the elder brother's reception in the girl's side. A very unusual sight to see the both of us up and rarring to go by 8.30am. We arrived in Hippo at 10.30am with enough time for breakfast and to get ready for the convoy.

Here's my cousin in his wedding garb. The best man is also my cousin. Don't they look all grown up?

Can you tell that we're anticipating the hot atmosphere at the bride's house?

Just enjoy the next few photos...

Then when we got home, our littlest star was giving us a show of a lifetime. :)
Bask in the cuteness of... Ameerul Hussin!

Here's a little vide-O capturing his further cuteness that day. Please ignore the background. That's just for props. :P

The next day, again we were up and about by 9.00am and we were off to our uncle's house where the bridegrooms were coming home with their new wives.

These are just a few photos of my family enjoying the wedding. Hehe!

Now, our family has a tradition as a form of ice breaking and to have a little fun at weddings. After all the protocol and the hard work, I suppose the elders thought it'd be a nice way to wind down the tension. Still, there were a few things that needed to be done for this. I present the 'Mandi Sampat'.

The kids in high expectation and anticipation of the mountains of fun they'd have.

Spot the water baloons? Those are just ONE of the weapons they have!

Me and my eldest cousin's daughter. We have gone bonkers!

They did the 'Mandi Sampat' in two waves. One for the elder brother and then the second one for the younger brother. I got totally drenched in the second wave. My GOD! Soaked right down to my tinies. Didn't take a picture of that coz I was just focused on one thing, to get home and change into dry clothes. Good thing our houses weren't that far off... Phew!

The happy couples. L-R: Danial + Rozi, Shukri + Fariha

Life After... Pt 1

Call it a wake-up call. Call it an epiphany. Call it therapy. Call it what you will. But as I was wallowing in my sorrows as 1st November 2017 began, and knowing that in 24 days I was going to meet my 34th birthday without my beloved Dad for the very first time, I thought to myself that I need to do this for my own healing.
Yes, I lost my Dad this year. He left to be with Allah at exactly half of this year, on 16th June 2017. When 2017 started I honestly thought it would be a great year. I went on my solo trip, I was on probation for a promotion at work, I was going to the gym, my family was in good health, everyone was happy. It was a great start of the year.
Then like the 2004 Tsunami, my whole world and life unexpectedly came tumbling upside down and inside out. All of a sudden my family had crises. *Note the plural form of the word "crisis"* And it started on a rather fine day on 28th April.
I was on edge that day as I did my colleague's wedding makeup. Part of me screa…

The Time I was Flying Blue with KLM

About two months ago I came back from a magnificent travel experience to the UK and Paris. I fully intend to write all about it as it was my very first solo trip ever! But this post is not about that per se. I plan to break down the solo trip experience so that it will not be too heavy in one posting. 
Anyway, I just wanted to share a little bit about my experience travelling for the first time with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines as they were my chosen carrier to take me on this wonderful journey. 
From the get go, I would say it was not exactly all smooth flowing. My own unfamiliarity and inexperience with them probably contributed to the little bumps along the way but thankfully their customer service team is well trained and equipped to help iron out any hurdles or uncertainties that I faced. 
The booking was unique in its own right. The selection of flight dates, times and class was all standard. Then when it came to payment was when I discovered the first uniqueness, or rather the second …

Getting out of Blogging Retirement - Take 2

I've already had some food in my system, and while it's probably on its way to full digestion now, let's try putting in a half decent blog post.

Like I said, after a long, I believe 2-year hiatus from blogging, I had really thought I would let blogging die a natural death and stop just like that. But as things occur in my life, I find myself itching to write again.
Like today. 
First, during lunch time. 
One of my colleagues, let's call her Kay, told us that Hard Rock Cafe has a pretty good lunch set menu. It comes with a salad, main course and dessert, and a refillable drink for the price of a normal main course. So of course we jumped to it. The moment we got to HRC, it was almost a full house! We were lucky not to have to wait in a queue. Those people probably thought to take advantage of the lunch set too. 
Anyway, there were four main courses offered in the lunch set menu; Chicken Marinara, Chicken Pasta, Hamburger and Grilled Fish. I opted for the Chicken Marina…
