I found out my husband is jealous of Robert Pattinson, my movie star crush! Awwww!He he he... And he developed a sensitivity to anything Robert Pattinson and Twilight. So who wants to accompany me to watch Twilight New Moon? Please email me!
Today, I finally renewed my license at JPJ. Actually, changed to full license after 2 years of driving with P stamped on my screens.It was overdue by almost 3 months!
I think I miss someone so much.
Guess guess guess lah!
And I got a second nephew this morning. The baby of my sister, Munira and his husband Anuar. We nicknamed him Ultraman. But my sis said his real name gonna be Ali. Welcome to the world Mr ALI:) (At this point is still not registered. Will update soon!)
Why do shopping season always happens when I'm broke?
Yeah, with our wedding just passed by, our financial is still in red alert until maybe 3 months more. What's with photographers and videographers to pay and us moving out to our new lovepad gonna happen within couple of months, it won't be a good time to get ANY new bags, shoes or clothes without reasons aite? I hope my current 'Financial Minister' will agree on the budget allocations to buy job interview outfits or new makeup or this or that or that one also or everything?! hehehehe.....
I kept on reminded of the shopping fun fare when there's always new messages popping up in my inbox announcing the big bargains and special set for Christmas gifts. Being an avid shopper, of course I'm always armed with store cards and credit card. And now they are being ruthless to my fragile soul. Oh god!!! Should I just turn off the handphone and sign off my emails??You know, its not just stores at shopping malls are doing it, even internet shopping webs are joining in the craze!Warghhh!
And some of my friends are going to Singapore for the big shopping season.Drool!
Yes people, sadly I'm announcing that I CANNOT JOIN THE FUN! Not just yet! ~Wiping off the tears~
But its okay, I am gonna enjoy the sweet moments of my new life with my dear hubby. And last but not least....... I can't wait to DECORATE MY NEW HOUSE soon! My ultimate creative avenue. Darling, lets shop for paints and home deco!
Hehehe...its not exactly new. But it is newly launched. Officially. What? What? What??!!!!
Check this out!Click on the pic to get linked to my world of fantasy!
And i'm being generous to celebrate my first 10 customers who's getting engage or married on 2010 by awarding them RM100 worth of voucher each if they order their Hantarans from me. Want to know how??Click here or click on the image below:
Okay, I believe most of you readers has been to numerous interviews.
Have you ever stumbled with these questions?
"Tell me about yourself"
"Is there anything about you I need to know other than what is in your resume?"
"Is there any question you want to ask to me?"
I hate those questions. Why? Its a real trick! Coz your answers will reflect about alot of things. And scarily enough, if wrongly answered, it can make you sound; 1)Silly 2)Unsure of yourself 3)Unenthusiastic 4)Bragging 5)Lack confidence and worst..if you can't actually answer any of them. Because then, they will know you are simply too nervous to think of anything. Then, you are not proactive or creative enough for the post. Then you can't really sell your true potential. Then they will have doubts to hire you. Owh! And you'll just pass the opportunity. Damn.
Yesterday..was a bad day for me n Superman. No we didn't fight. Its something about his career.It saddened me. But he took it with stride. I'm proud of him.
Sorry guys, I can't elaborate what its all about.
But on a bright side, He will be less pressured. He can focus more on his own business. Perhaps he has more time for me. And perhaps he's will find a greener pasture for his future. OUR future. I wish you all the best Darling. I LOVE YOU.
As promised, I will talk about my wedding celebration at my hubby's side. But I won't talk much as I don't have alot of pics of the day. Ye ke I won't talk much?We'll see..ehhehehe..
Actually I spent my first night alone. It was a blessing in disguise, really:) My body was really2 tired. I was badly needing the rest. Frankly I didn't think I can perform my wifey duty in that condition.Lol! Anyways, Superman had to go back to his mom's house to help preparing for his side's reception.
So I woke up super fresh! I had no dream! Wow!
7:30 am-I realized my old handphone which I use for Celcom line had been stolen! Shits, now, how am I gonna contact my makeup artist?? Her number was in that hp!What if she didn't have my number?How??
8:45 am- I'm ready to go back to my Ampang house for the makeover. Cik Mas my bridesmaid for the day said she will wait for me at Ampang. Ermhh..I frantically switched my lappie to go to Kak Ian Sham's(the makeup artist) webpage to get her number!And when I called, she sounded relieved.huh??Why?
10 am-I was already in Ampang house. Kak Ian had just arrived too. And she started the makeup routine when Cik Mas arrived. Her assistant helped out to beautify Cik Mas. And finally she told me that she came over on Saturday morning and knocked the door as well as shouting Salam. Of course nobody was there!I was busy at Kajang getting married! Ha ha ha...she lost my mobile number. But she remembered that it should be on that weekend but she was confused of which day, Saturday or Sunday. Luckily, she called her friend at Bora Ombak to check. Ha ha ha!!!!
I was wearing a dress made by Nisa Mazbar. It was really pretty, but it was also revealing too much of my cleavage. I felt really embarrased. Nisa was suppose to come to sew some cloth on it when I'm wearing it. You know something like designers do backstage of their runway to fix something? But she was not available coz she had to attend a function about MiFa.You know, the Malaysian Fashion Industry Award?Hrmhh...I really wished she was there to save my day. With all the Hajjahs and Hajis of my parents's and Superman brother's friends was there, I felt like I could at least wear a bit more decently. Mixed feeling about this. I was really looking forward to feel like a gorgeous bride in it. I really do. But with all eyes on my cleavage rather than my face. or dress.. its not that kind of attention I was seeking. I mean, I am usually 'selambe'. But being a Malay bride in a quite traditional Malay family, its not really okay. But me being brave, I wore it with confidence. Have to lorh!
1230pm- My entourage waited at Petronas Tesco Ampang before we proceed together. I was feeling a bit scared you know..with the cleavage popping..I really hope I won't see some contortions on my mom's face. Please...save me.. Let it be a nice happy ending day. Please. I was praying all the way..
1pm- we almost arrived at the gate of Bora Ombak, which is next to the Sportsplanet at Ampang point when I realized the chain that secure my dress sleeves was broken. Superman's bro who was driving the bridal car had to make a one big tour of the compound so that Superman could mend it in time. I could see the photographers and videographers faces. I laughed hard. They were all ready to click. But we passed by them like nothing was happening. Ha ha ha! And when we finally made the re-entrance, they still have a bit of confusion stamped on their faces!
Walking into the hall in a bright sunny afternoon:)
The fusion of Bali+Contemporary style.. we have a disco ball above our heads..party right after?haks!

3:30pm-The reception ended. It was a small, simple, yet elegant wedding. Attended by 150 people, it was nice. The food was nice. Especially at the main table. Me n Superman had fun with photoshooting at the nooks around Bora Ombak. We had something like in those fashion magazines. You know, the haute couture vibe?Owh...glam gittew. I really can't wait for the outcome. We took about 2 hours break before we were proceed to Lookout Point for outdoor photoshoot. Cik Mas and Min the BF as well as Superman, was dead sleeping at my house during the break. It was a hot, windy afternoon. I was on the other hand just reading a magazine. Too much adrenaline pumping!
5 pm- We head to Lookout Point, Bukit Ampang. You see, that was where I had my first 'romantic' dinner with Supeman, about 3 years before. It was my friend, Cik Baizura who introduced us. At that time, I didn't even have any feelings towards him. But as the saying said, you'll never know what lies in the future. Indeed. It took him one year to pin me down. haha. Now, I am proudly calling myself the WIFE to Superman. A twist of fate ha! :) LOVE YOU DARLING!
me n cik mas while waiting for our cars
Our ever creative photographers and videographer, head by Mr Fairuz Ismail from Avicennastudio really knew how to evoke the emotions out of us. Everybody who was eating at the restaurant was watching. Our main spot was at the Bread & Olives restaurant .They have the nicest view of KL. And the management was really nice to allow us to carry the photoshoot as long as we dine there. Actually it was part of the props we used. And big thanks to our dedicated photo+video graphers. They even skipped their family dinner so that they can capture the illuminated view of KL at night for us!!
The activities of the day ended at 9pm.
We were really happy when we realized that there will be no more pressure and heart ache pertaining to this wonderful events. Its all done. It now the time to look for a brighter future together as a husband and wife. So when people kept asking me how it feels like being married? All that I can say is,
"It is pretty much the same, but there's unspeakable sense of calmness surrounding me."
With this as my final recap of my beautiful wedding, I want to thank to all that was involve on behalf of me n Superman, for giving the much needed moral support, lending your shoulders to cry on, unbiased advises, money, stuffs, energy and time for the preparation, as well as gifts to further remember the day as long as we live.
And this special thanks I would like to extend especially to:Each of my immediate family members,My relatives especially the family of Wak Man, Paman Din & Cik Jijah, Long & Mak Pin,Superman's family,My Dear bridesmaids, Cik Hana and Cik Mas, BV Clan,Ayang,QAS Event Sdn Bhd,Avicennastudio Sdn Bhd,Kak Hana, Ninie & Winnie,coz your contributions tops above the rest!

ofey the photographer buat perangai kanak2 riangnye:)
okay..now lets talk what happened after that eventful morning.
I was really tired and sleepy. But I just couldn't doze off. The guests were still there until late afternoon. And as usual they would want to check out the bridal room. So there I was, entertaining them, semi-conciously. Kak Hana said she will come for the reception makeup at 5pm. At 4.30pm I finally managed to rest on my comfy bed, trying my very best not to ruin the deco on it. At 4.55pm, I was up and running to the kitchen for ice to prep my face before putting on the moisturizer.
3pm-ish- My SIL,called me up. Ermh..Why?? She told me that they met with an accident on the way back to their home. Superman was driving. I was speechless. Was he okay? She said yes. But the car was heavily wrecked. OMG! I quickly text my cousin, Kak Nanie, who was the MC about it as well as my brother, Abg Aie. But I don't want everybody to know and caused chaos. I chose to just sit in the room and try to relax.
5pm-Cik Hana, my dear bridesmaid arrived. She started off the makeup session first since I was busy stuffing my empty tummy a lil bit. Or else I have to wait until 9pm before my next meal. My heart was fluttering. Whatever gonna happen. Can they find a substitute car? Can they be here on time. Who's gonna drive now? Will his family still be happy celebrating us after the accident?
5.30pm- The photographers came in. My brother, Abg Aie, briefed them about the reception itinerary. But the videographer was not there yet. I was worried.Erk.
6pm-The videographer finally arrived.Phew!!!
6:30pm-Papa came knocking asking where Abg Aie was. And I was like..Pa...how would I know??
6:45pm-"Where the hell is my kain??????!"- i asked? Shocked. There was only my top part of my Kebaya in the garment bag! Shitty! My face contorted. Kak Hana locked the door so that nobody else comes in n asking more questions to me. Or else..Hell! "Its ok. I'll go to Dzull Classique.I'll get the kain for you" said Hana. She snapped a pic of me wearing only the top part of the kebaya for her reference later at the tailor. Wut duh??????How come the assistant left it???! Careless! I was trying hard to calm my face and maintain the 'seri'.Owh!!!
7pm- Superman called to tell they will arrive on time. Alhamdulillah!!!!
7:30pm-"Wait, they are ironing your kain!We'll be there on time. Don't worry!" And I was smiling again, although I was cursing under my breath. Darn!
8:00pm-Superman called saying they are nearing. Kak Hana was still doing my hair.
8:15pm-Kak Hana rushed to a nearby school where his entourage was waiting so that she can mend his sampin and tanjak. I prayed that all was fine. And he was indeed my King.
8:40pm-He arrived! My King has arrived. Went downstairs and walked towards the door to greet him at the end of the canopy. Jeez! Alot..i mean alot of people! I was all smiling! My friends was waving to me and clicking their cameras away. Like a celebtiry I was!hehehh!I could see him waiting for me. Yeay! He made it! Love him! And he's cute...no...handsome..no...owh I was confused. A lil bit of everything??
After that, it went quite smoothly. It was not really how I imagined it. But way better. At that point I just didn't want to think of anything else. Enjoy the moment.
I saw my dream cake. My 4-figure cake, sponsored by my dear friend, Ayang, who could not make it that night. I wish she was there.
And we had a bouquet toss with Beyonce's Single Ladies-Put A Ring On It song playing on the background. My cousin, Aina, was the winner!:) But where's the man, girl?;p
When all ended, I was terribly tired and couldn't wait to go to bed. But someone was waiting for me:) The day was sealed beautifully. There's another day to go. His side reception on the next day. Its gonna be a tux n gown day. Yeay!!
Till then, enjoy the pix:----------------->

I will recap from Wednesday 4th November 2009 until Bersanding Kecil on the 7th November 2009.
Wednesday-I started my matrimonial leave. My hantaran for him was still half done. There was about 5 out of 9 trays to be filled. Superman hadn't settled his hantaran shopping. Ya..we shop for ourselves and swap it. He's still working. I was really pissed. The canopy contractor put up the structure in the afternoon. At 12pm, I was rushing to Dzull Classique to get my dresses. Damn, it was not ready. I got pissed again. Coz it was suppose to be ready by last week. She asked to come again at night.Ergh..fine, I have to accompany Superman to pick his and Kojack's anyway.. I was suppose to have my makeup test last Sunday. But I forgot. SO, I rescheduled to Wednesday Noon. Turns out me and Kak Hana had to postpone it later to around 5pm. At 33opm I was at KLCC helping Superman to choose HIS ring. It was a major challenge coz he has big fingers. Size 23. Found sth but they can't resize it to his size. The original was more than 2 sizes smaller. I left him n rushed to Kak Hana. She was super nice. Her lil tots made the studio alive. Like a kindergarten. And she was out of breath disciplining the kids. haha..Adorable:) Ermh...let the pictures do the talking..ya..
my fav-bersanding dinner makeup -ala2 primadona zaman dolu2-
This was what I saw when I turned to my house road after the Makeup Test.The canopy was there..It was really happening!!:)
Thursday- Superman was still working!!!!!!! Bizarre. I'm lost for words. This is the challenge you gonna get when marrying a businessman. Adoi...time critical nihhh... He managed to shop few more for his hantaran. Still couldn't find his ring. I was really2 worried:( I didn't go back to Kajang so that I can finish up some more hantaran and clean up my messy house, my laundry and such. On Sunday, some people are coming to my house to get ready for Superman's side's reception. Must make it look like a house! Mummy was calling me non-stop to ask this and that. Stay calm Mariam..Just Stay Calm!! You CANNOT have more wrinkles and pimples. (shits..a GIANT PIMPLE made its way on my forehead. Ahhhh..lantakla...ape guna concealer??) Friday- Whattttttttt??????????????????????????????! Its Friday already??? Someone asked me..am I nervous to get married...ending up my bachelorhood..yada yada.? The answer was..NO. I'm more nervous about the event. Still lots to do. And I was still at KL until 8pm! And my house was already full with neighbours helping, vendors performing their design works, DJ setting up their equipments and my relatives from far had arrived. And they were all waiting for me!
I had 4 hours spa session at Tini's Spa in the morning. It was suppose to relax my mind and body. But..it never happened. Not completely. I didn't dare to leave my hp, wary that if someone if wants to reach me for emergency matters. True enough, there was only one brief 15 minutes where nobody contacted me either by calls or SMS! OMG! I guess the Spa Attendants saw how stressed up I was. They gave me a better service..Heaven...for awhile:)
Then, it was rush hour again. After tranferring some stuffs to my sis, Munira, I rushed to Kg Baru, picked up Cik Mas, and we went for inai a.k.a henna designwork at Jalan Tar. Found a saloon, an Indian saloon who advertise the service. Went in, picked a design wich the designer quoted RM20. Ok fine. This is only the 2nd time I was doing it. So I couldn't remember the price I got about 5 years back. Guess what they charged me RM90!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The RM20 is just for one side of a hand! Shits..I forgot the saloon's name. But really i was duped!!MARAH sangat!
Next journey was to go back to Ampang house, meet Superman to get his stuffs and rush to Kajang and pick my dresses at Dzull Classique. And then, go back to my Mom's house drop some stuffs, say hi to the helpers and went out again, meet Nisa at her house to fetch my wedding gown. All that was supposed happened accordingly and completed by 11pm. Well let just say it couldn't happened because of broken promises by the tailor(Dzull-if you are reading this, I'm not trying to condemn your business, but, when you promise things make it happen!) delayed everything by TWO hours! I was waiting for bloody two hours for them to fix my Kebaya buttons which they promised will be ready in half hour! Of which I've told them I need to go back ASAP because my wedding would be the next day! I almost cried!! When I was told it was ready, the assistant zipped off my Kebaya inside the garment bag and I stormed out angrily.Ergh!
Saturday-The BIG DAY-7.11.09 5a.m I just completed my hantaran for him. Finally! Time to snooze. My florists was still doing the touch ups. I was famished. I yearned for nuggets from McDonald. But nobody wants to help me to fulfil my yearnings. Ergh...I was not really the Queen of the Day??Uhuk!
6.3o a.m Mom woke me up. Telling me(bebel actually) to pray and ask for forgiveness and barakah from Allah. I didn't sleep peacefully. It was way out of my normal sleeping time. I tried to continue sleeping. But, luck was not on my side.
8 a.m I finally got my first food after more than 14 hours! Roti canai and hot nescafe! Nyummm!
9 a.m Kak Hana the makeup artist arrived. I just finished taking my bath...oops I havn't prepped my face.
1030 a.m Relatives arrived. And as usual, knock2 the bridal room.(Favourite of the aunties2..huhuhu!). I think I surprised them with no glittery bed covers and such. Just a really practical, beautiful, simple embroidered, hotel quality cotton bedsheets accentuated by fresh flowers in tall big vasses on the tables. And the wall was adorned by my flowery wall art.. no scallops. I don't like the typical idea. I love to be simple, bold and different. Sorry aunties, didn't mean to shock you that way. hehehehe.
11 a.m The TIME was nearing. Superman said his entourage was reaching the Surau Al-Furqan already.
11.30 a.m He was there sitting in front of Ustaz Ayob, the jurunikah of my housing area. Beside him was Papa, his brother, Along, Uncle Wan, Cikgu June and the rest of our family members was around. The photographers and videographers was busy clicking their cameras.
My BV clan was there too:)
I was calm. I don't know why I didn't feel nervous at all. Something about the Surau made me feels the serenity and I knew it was going to be okay. Maybe because that was where I learned to read the Quran when I was small. It has been awhile since I read one. :(
Papa stuttered. Seems like he's more nervous than Yazid was. Maybe nervous of handing his youngest daughter to his man. Everybody was laughing under their breath. My legs was already cramped.Ha ha.
Alhamdulillah..with one Lafaz, Superman and Me were pronounced married. Thank you Darling. I cried when I kissed Papa's hand and hugged him. I can still feel the moment while I'm writing this. Oh my..Sweetness.
Lunch was served at my house right after. And Berinai Kecil/Bersanding Kecil for close friends and relatives followed at 1:30 pm. I changed to a purple Kebaya.
Enjoy the pictures below. I'll write about my bersanding in the next entry.
This is my no-makeup-sleepy-stoned face with wet-hair!OMG! Search for the GIANT pimple on my forehead,,hhahha! My Nikah look. Innocent kah saya?
MIL:sign je laaa..pikir ape lagi tahhh! Cik Hana: Ko sure ke ni? Me: Aiyoo....ketaq tangan lutut nehh! Papa: Alahai anak bongsu aku ni..dah nak jadik bini orang dahh!:(
