My Best Friend's Wedding


Assalamualaikum,

"And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives
Where we're gonna be when we turn 25
I keep thinking times will never change
Keep on thinking things will always be the same..."

When my best friend told me that she's getting married in plus minus 30 days, a mountain of mix emotions avalanche hits me. 30 days is not enough to wrap up our bachelor best friend day! And I don't even know her future husband! More importantly, I need more time to let her go...

Me and my best friend, we are not the typical two of a kind and over the top best friend. I am the oversensitive melancholy cry baby whereas she is none of that. Hahaha. We even live two separate lives. We had a blast during our school days, before time and distance started to take their place between us. We are occupied with study, career, responsibilities and other stuff. But we survive, for 15 years.

"But when we leave this year we won't be coming back
No more hanging out cause we're on a different track
And if you got something that you need to say
You better say it right now cause you don't have another day
Cause we're moving on and we can't slow down
These memories are playing like a film without sound..."

Throughout all these years (and more years ahead InshaAllah), she is very significant in my life. I would have spent my school days being a social freak if she weren't by my side. I would not survive Mathematics and Physics if she did not make me study. I would not survive losing Mak without extra strength from her warm hands. I would have gone crazy going through my roller coaster love life and dramatic break up without her being my crying shoulder. I have melancholy as my middle name, but having her by my side make me want to enjoy my life. (While collecting pictures for this entry, I notice that I truly look happy in pictures with her ^_____^ )

Of my entire bridesmaid time (so far), to be by my best friend's side on her wedding day is the best moment ever. It is a great honor though I only played a small part in it. For a lifelong friendship, I wish I could contribute more for her wedding. I thought we'd running errands for our wedding - talking about it, picking dresses and flowers, shopping till we drop... But time and distance make it impossible. For that, I am grateful that I still had a chance to attend her wedding and do the least. [There were 5 of us and I have attended all four weddings. Mine would be the last *wink*]

When a guy found his soul mate, I lost a best friend. It truly feels like I am losing a best friend... in a good way. It took me ages to complete this entry because I always end up crying. In fact, I've been crying since her engagement day. Hahaha. For good reasons, ya. This is such an emotional entry. I have so many things to say but nothing came out the way I want. So this is the feeling when your best friend gets married - you are stuck between feeling tremendously excited and happy and being sad and lonely. Hahaha. Everybody should find time to hang out with their best friend before any of them got married! ^______^ v

My darling Maznita, it is truly my happiest that you have found a decent Prince that would love you every single day of forever. It's easy to fall in love, but hard to find someone who will catch you. Believe me, I know ^_______^ And you, MashaAllah, you have found a soul who loves you back; equally and more. Baraka Allahu Lakuma wa Baraka alikuma, Wa jamaah baina kuma fee khair. May Allah bless you and shower his blessings on you and bring you together in goodness. Amiin Ya Rabb. Be happy.

Wassalam.

Goodbye Ben Jern

Oh my... another good bye. Why laaaaaaaaaa~!

Today, we bid farewell and we wish a great future to our one and only Loh Ben Jern of #BenHafiz FlyFM. Our heroes of insanity.
It's the final 30 minutes of flying with Ben's craziness... So sad! Huhuhuhuhu. Ben Jern has been on air since 10 PM last night - slumber party katanya - and I only sleep 3 hours plus, listening to him sambil kemas barang.
I know, some of you might think: "What is wrong with this girl, crying over a DJ...". Clearly, you don't know Ben, you never listen to these #FunnyBigBoys #BenHafiz and you never listen to Mrs. Boopathy and Pak Jamil or their Krappi Call. They are the only person on earth who can make Malaysians do *obviously* crazy stuff over a phone call. Hahahaha. Ben is the most adorable talking goat. LOL!


*** They are airing the Grandmother of All Krappi Call again - where Ben finally got krappi-ed *** I was laughing madly in the car earlier this morning... And then I cried. Oh it was su…

Celebrate the Love: Bones and Booth

I have exam at 2 pm today and I've been burning the midnight oil. But I really really really want to share this: Bones and Booth's wedding vow. Well sort of wedding conversation, actually.
I love them and I am happy that the characters finally get their happy ending.

To Bones, the coolest geek I ever known, and to Booth, congratulations!


Booth: "You know, I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here—look, hey, do you remember the last time that we were here, standing right around this spot? It was right in the beginning, before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you, because you were irritating me, and you chased me down and you caught up to me. I said to you, 'Listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row,' right, and then you said to me, [Brennan: "I can be a duck."]. Yeah. We had been chasing each other for a long time, been chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and sn…

Getting Out of the Slump

Sometimes I feel like crying will solve everything. When I feel like that, I know I am in the slump - "The New Moon" slump. I called it that because I am in a similar state as Bella Swan in The New Moon after Edward Cullen left her.
"It's like a huge hole has been punched through my chest."
"Normal memories were still dangerous. If I let myself slip up, I’d end up with my arms clutching my chest to hold it together, gasping for air..."
These.
It's hard to get out from this state, but I have bounce back before. It took a lot of patience, a lot of determination, a generous amount of support, and most importantly: a strong will.
The strongest will is fueled by living up to the purpose of our creation - to submit and worship Allah.
Crying does solve everything; when you used up all your energy and cry in your solat and doa.
It is always the darkest before the new moon. And stars are the brightest during this time.

I'll find my way - I assure myse…
