It’s kinda late to blog but Alhamdulillah, my engagement ceremony went well. Now i am officially engaged to Engku Emri Engku Abas, who would soon be my lawfully wedded husband. Insya Allah.
Erkk..was that really me saying that? Haha. Sometimes i still cant believe that we are engaged and getting married soon.
I got this question from some friends “So, apa perasaan menjadi tunangan orang? “. Frankly, i would say i am happy. Happy that we are halfway on our journey into another phase of our lives. Happy that we belong to each other now. I also feel that we grow much more attached.
Of course, i also got advises, from friends and family. Being a fiancee means that i have to start learning to put him into my everyday life, especially when making decisions, and when doing things that normally “orang bujang” do. Being a fiancee means that i already put my hands into a lifelong commitment, meaning that i have to take his feelings and his concerns into account. Oh well, it’s hard, i admit that. Being an independent girl all along before, having the liberty to do whatever i want to do. But its OK, i am willing to change. For him of course, and for us. For love.
People say that engagement period is when the relationship is tested the most. Well that may happen, but i know that we both have the strength to make it through. Insya Allah. After all we already had 6 years of ups and downs together, and we have learned a lot.
So now i have to start thinking of the weddingla pulak..This time it will involve more things to prepare, more things to organize and do. Aiyak..At some point i think that the western style of having a bridesmaid is a great idea. They help the bride a lot! Maybe i should have a few. Heheh. I will think of it.
And since the engagement wave and settling down is now over, i find myself back in the kitchen. Papa bought a lot of fresh prawns when he was here, i cant help myself from cooking a sinful dish – Garlic Butter Prawns..so Yum!
