The Mysterious Monkey Man.

Hi there! How's the day? I hope you all enjoy your long weekends! Since I'm in Terengganu so Sunday is still working day! Haha Sunday blues here T-T So, I promised to story about the mysterious guy I'm engaged to in the previous post. 

Magic

The magic began to start last year in 2014 when I decided to return to Egypt earlier than everyone. For some reason (related to my past relationship with a guy before) I decided to go back to Egypt two weeks after Raya. That time, everyone (including me) feels it is weird to go back early as I didn't have reseat exams and convocation is still way too far on November. I don't know. I just followed my instincts. 

So after I arrived in Egypt end of August, I had nothing to do. Then I get close to the new warden of Malaysia Hall, mr. Zalaz and made some close connection with his family. I drove his family to Mansoura and Alexandria for sight seeing. And also around Cairo town.

Never thought that my instincts brought me to meet this old man.

In October 2014, I was in charge for a program Kursus Keusahawanan organised by Education Malaysia in Cairo and Alexandria (2 series). There are four guests, 3 of them were lecturers from UKM, and one from UPSI were invited to conduct the course . I was in charge as the committee for EME and at the same time I joined the course. In the last day of the course, mr. Zalaz asked me to bring the guests to sightseeing around Cairo. So I brought them sightseeing with one of my mate Syazwan. We get closer with the four lecturers as they were also easy to get along with. Before they went back to Malaysia, one of them, Tn Hj Jumaat asked for my phone number and asked me to not lose contact with them even when they were back to the hometown. 

That is not the end of the story. 

After a week they gone back to Malaysia, this old man Tn Hj Jumaat contacted me thru whatsapp. He asked a favor for me to meet his son and become his daughter in law!!! I was freaking surprised, shocked, and all. Like seriously, someone's father asked you to marry his son which you never knew. That's really RARE I tell you. But then, I agreed to get to know his son first and never promised anything to this old man. It was a humble favor so I can't turn down an old man's wish 100% right?

So, near the end of October, he (the old man's son) started to contact me through whatsapp. It was quite normal, I want to get to know him and vice versa. He's 29 years old, the first son of the family, and had a sister which is 2 years older than me. A family related man. A network engineer. Honestly I never understand his scope of job until now. Haha. He's quite normal except that he's way more mature than anyone else I ever met. 

The first time.

Mid of December, I fly back for good leaving Egypt in sweet memories. Arrived in KLIA, he picked me up as his dad had asked me to meet his mom at home. Waaa that was absolutely a new thing for me. I never had any chance to meet my exes' parents before. Plus, meeting a man you're going to be hooked up with at the first time. Haha. Haha. Haha. Too awkward! But, I acted cool all the way. I started the conversation first in the car, and finally we were like an old long lost friends, we get along too well! I met his mom and right at that time, I fell in love with the family. I felt that I already belonged to the family. They cared for each other, and me. I never felt the sense of belonging like this before, except with my mom. 

The question.

End of January, his mom started the serious conversation with me. She asked if I agree to be with him. I just said 'Yes'. I won't ask too much. If the parents are alright and the man is strong to take care of me, I won't ask for more. This is more than enough for me. I feel blessed to know this family and him. :)

15 February 2015, his parents came to Terengganu to meet my mom to ask for my hand in marriage. Things are going smoothly. My mom agreed to my choice. It was the best choice I ever made, she said. I feel Blessed. I'm grateful to God for this chance I have. 

So last month after Eid, 25 July 2015, I'm finally engaged to the monkey* man, Mohd Ridhwan. Alhamdulillah. We'll be engaged for 1 year, expecting that our wedding will be on August 2016, InshaAllah. I'm happily looking forward to my new journey with him. Pray that this relationship will lasts forever. :)

Till then, ja ne!

*He has long hands, so I called him monkey. :p

WEDDING SHOES- TIPS TO PICK THE RIGHT SHOES FOR YOUR WEDDING

Hey guys! Today I'm going to share something which is very interesting about how to choose the right shoes for your BIG wedding day! Since I'm also preparing for my own wedding next year, it might not be exaggerating to do early research for wedding attires right? :)

Every woman dreams of having the perfect fairytale wedding since they were little girls. Even I do. Wedding dresses, invitations, catering, wedding dais, cake decorations are the most crucial subjects in the checklist, and NOT TO FORGET, wedding shoes. However, picking the right wedding shoes is a definite must as you want to have a splendid time on your special day. No one will ever want to walk in painful shoes on the big day of your life. You will never imagine how hard for you to fake big smiles to your guests while your every steps means PAIN! 

Therefore, it is very crucial for women to apply these few tips to make sure you pick the right comfortable wedding shoes. So here's some tips :

Match the theme

Usually people match wedding shoes with their dresses. Sometimes we may fall in love with a perfect pair of shoes that do not match nicely with the dress. Do not make the mistake of mismatching the wrong looking shoes with your dress. Make sure you spend your money on shoes with the similar fabric of your dress or put it side to side if it looks nice together. So does the color. Do not apply color block or opposite to the color of the dress, it might look weird.

                   
                           

Safe 3 inch

Keep versatile, stay safe. The 3inch heel size will be the comfortable height and you can walk in it for the entire day without having the risk of tumbling down. We should never let photos of shameful moments be posted on social media ain't we? Petite girls will think the higher the better but it will be a huge risk to handle killer high heels on your wedding day. Just my simple advice, do not choose higher heels as you will never stand to greet all your guests standing for 3-5 hours. Enjoy a safe choice and be in the moment celebrating your love story.

                             

Pick a strap

Strap shoes always look classy and never fade. It provides you great stability and easier to walk in. No bride would want the embarrassment of wearing shoes that can fly off. For example, if you still want to wear killer high heels to look tall and slender on your big day, then it is highly recommended to wear a strap shoe for comfort. Single thin strap above the ankle would be my choice. 

Last but not least, pick your wedding shoes which will makes you look elegance and classy, not too over. A pair of good shoes will walk you for a thousand miles. So does your wedding fairytales. Avoid being in pain right after your wedding event is over. You still got a pair of honeymoon flight tickets waiting!

       

Tilł then, adieù.

Next Stage.

Assalamualaikum,

Lebih kurang setahun selepas aku punya last post! Pergh. Bukan busy sangat tapi kadangkala aku terlupa untuk menulis disini. Memang terlalu banyak cerita untuk aku tulis. Dan terlalu banyak perubahan yang aku hadapi sepanjang setahun ini. Yang manis, yang pahit, semuanya ada. Alhamdulillah. Akan ku tulis satu per satu later on maybe dalam bentuk throwback. InsyaAllah. 😊

Syawal masih belum hilang auranya. Jadi belum terlambat untuk aku ucapkan Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri Maaf Zahir & Batin kepada semua pembaca. Raya kali ini Alhamdulillah walaupun tak semeriah zaman aku kecik2 dulu tetapi masih segembira dahulu bersama family yang tersayang. 

Next stage in my life ye. Ada dua yang paling besar. Firstly, offer letter untuk penempatan as a Dental Officer dah sampai setelah 5 bulan penantianku. Alhamdulillah dapat di Terengganu. Aku masih diizinkan untuk tinggal bersama ibuku. Aturan Allah itu sangat berhikmah.

Yang keduanya, pada 25 Julai baru-baru ni, aku dah selamat bertunang dengan seorang jejaka misteri! Kahkah. Sebab apa misteri? Sebab aku akan ceritakan nanti macam mana aku kenal dengan jejaka misteri ni. Kerana pertemuan aku dengan dia ni juga sangat berhikmah dan sangat magik. Magik yang diberikan oleh Allah kepada aku. Alhamdulillah. Syukur dengan nikmat Allah kerana dipertemukan dengan dia dan keluarganya. Akan diceritakan lagi later on. Takleh expose sangat nanti jadi panjanggggg ceritanya. 😉 

Till then, Ja ne!
