The Red Wedding

After all the huha and hihi, she finally gotten married, Sarimah Samad and my Informatics buddy, Syahrizan Ali Hassan. We got there a little bit late, around 8.30PM but we made it there all right, just in time for Sarung Cincin ceremony and the awesome traditional meal of Negeri Sembilan, which I was told was cooked by her very own daddy. Ayam salai masak lemak cili api, ikan keli goreng cili and pucuk paku masak tempoyak+petai+ikan bilis. It was dee-li-ci-ou-s. The couple wore whites with a hint of pink; they look lovely. I almost shed a tear =). Then we head back to our homestay, Homestay Warisan, which is very traditional looking yet is quite high-tech (facility-wise) at the same time. I will definitely come back!

On the next day, we left the homestay around 11.00 AM and got there around 11.30 AM. Sarimah was one happy bride. If Yani cannot stop smiling on her wedding day, Sarimah just cannot stop laughing, very loudly might I add. I guess this is the new generation’s bride. Pengantin perempuan malu-malu has extincted…

The whole wedding was red. I was told to wear red and I thought that she only requested her friends to do that. As it turned out, everyone’s there (well, almost everyone) worn red. It really is a red wedding, just like she wanted. Syu’s mom made the hantaran for Sarimah’s side and they are beautiful. Ainur and Ana helped with the hand bouquet and the flowers are just gorgeous. The bersanding ceremony started around 1.00 PM. We stayed for a couple of pictures then we left around 1.30 PM for Faiz’s wedding in Malacca.

It was a sunny day. The food was great. The guests were happy. It couldn’t be better.

Syah & Sarimah, I wish you a lifetime of happiness. Good luck on this new journey together, may you will be blessed with many fortunes in many different ways (I see girl twin although you kata nak merancang..hehe). All the best. Cheers.

I'm Yours

I've heard this song so many times on the radio but never ever really listen to the lyrics. I love the music though, it has that colbie caillat's vibe. Nevertheless, I ran out of fresh, good songs on my drive to & fro office and started looking for new songs when I watched the videoclip on YouTube. It's love at a first sight, =P. Then, I looked up the lyrics and I was surprised that it's not really a love song (kinda), which makes me love it even more. It really is that kind of song that you listen to on a long drive. I'm making a mix-cd for someone and this song will definitely be in it.

This would be my first video attachment. Hope it works.

Jason Mraz ladies and gentleman..

Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks and now I'm trying to get back

Before the cool done run out I'll be giving it my bestest
And nothing's going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it's again my turn to win some or learn some

But I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find love love love love

Listen to the music of the moment, people dance and sing
We're just one big family
And it's our God-forsaken right to be loved loved loved loved loved

So I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm sure
There's no need to complicate, our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

D-d-do do you, do you, d-d-do, don't you want to come?
Scooch on over closer dear, I will nibble your ear
Oh yes love, love love love love love
Love you love, love you love

I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and I laughed

I guess what I be saying is there ain't no better reason
To rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons
It's what we aim to do, our name is our virtue

But I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm yours

Come on and open up your mind and see like me
(I won't hesitate)
Open up your plans and damn you're free
(No more, no more)
Look into your heart and you'll find that the sky is yours
(It cannot wait, I'm sure)

So please don't, there's no need
(There's no need to complicate)
There's no need to complicate
(Our time is short)
'Cause our time is short
(This is our fate)
This is, this is, this is our fate
I'm yours, I'm sayin' I'm yours
