Another edition of updates for the month of September 2009. It's already September?!? (O_o )
It's exactly one month before Buffy's nuptials. I don't know if I ever mentioned this but for the event, my family have entrusted me with the duty as emcee. And like a good daughter, I humbly accepted the job since I did it for PinkStar's wedding last year. BUT, since this is my parents we're talking about here, they want a more, how do I say this, elaborate emceeing duty. This time, complete with poems and heaps of protocol to follow. Not that PinkStar's wedding wasn't meticulously done but her parents were quite relaxed about the poems and protocol. For PinkStar it was pretty much me listing down the events that are coming, calling the VIPs to the wedding dais to give their blessings and then just going through the ceremony as the evening wore on. For Buffy's wedding, well, let's just say that my mum has started preparing several poems to be read out during the blessing ceremony. AND I'd have to have a completely typed out script to be discussed with my parents 3 weeks before the event, which will be NEXT WEEK. But I kept telling myself that since I've done it for PinkStar, I'm sure I could include all these further family details into the script for Buffy's wedding.
Then, my dad suggested something to me. He thought that since I am one of the closest sibling to Buffy that I should give a little speech in front of the whole family after the cake cutting ceremony. I thought it was a BRILLIANT idea... at the time. I was really excited to do that a few months ago but now... ERK! I am at my wit's end! I have no idea what to say during my speech. I haven't even started the first line! I don't even know what angle I should take when giving the speech. Should I go with the 'words of wisdom' approach? Or should I go with the 'Funny, jokes all around' approach? Or should I say something that would turn on the waterworks? Or should I go with the 'You better take care of her or else' approach? Or should I do the typical, 'Who is the bride/groom and how they met' approach? HELP!!
I know what some of you are probably thinking, 'What in the world has she been doing all these months?!'. Believe me, I thought that exact same thing. But in all honesty, I usually start to write something when inspiration strikes and when I got the duty, I thought, 'easy-peasy', since I do get inspired quite often. However, for the past few months, I seem to be all out of inspiration. Eep! So here I am, hoping that this entry will start to give me SOMETHING.
Let's just hope that I can get something started soon.
p/s: Did I mention I have to do about half the speech in Bahasa Melayu? GAAAHhhh...!
