94. Birthday at Dolly Dim Sum!

I celebrated my 27th Birthday last week (how time flies! Only seems yesterday that I was 24 years old hehe) and the lovely Hanis, Wenyi & Melvin belanja-ed me dinner at Dolly Dim Sum.

The food was so delicious, Alhamdulillah. What made the night was when a bunch of sombrero-wearing waiters came to our table and started serenading me with Happy Birthday on an acoustic guitar. It was so funny!

What a cute cake, masha Allah!

My partner in crime, Hanis. We do social media freelancing.

Alhamdulillah, this year Allah has granted me with so many blessings, and I am always counting them. I am happily married, this year we bought a house together and will be purchasing a car soon for Raya, I we hope to adorn the house with love, laughter, and the smell of freshly baked cookies. Allah also opened my heart to wear a hijab. I am still learning, hehe, so forgive me if my tudung seems wonky or creased.

91. panda attack!

Last Sunday, me and Faheem went to see the 1,600 pandas which were on display at Publika until yesterday. I was so excited to go because I love this kind of stuff especially if it's free one-of-a-kind so I had to begggg my husband to bring. He had mentioned it earlier but I thought he was talking about real pandas. When I heard it was a world tour of 1,600 paper machier pandas I was like we gotta goooo. I was more interested in paper pandas wtf. 

So apparently, the panda tour aimed to: 

1600 Pandas hope to spread and strengthen the awareness of environment conservation to everyone especially the young generation, not just taking photos with the Pandas. There are many creative and talented people around us, let’s initiate the culture of creative conservation together.
Support 1600 PandasMY for Initiating the Culture of Creative Conservation

Well, the queue to purchase the pandas was too long, so me and Faheem did the cheapo thang:

1. Wait for other people to take their pictures/selfies and clear the area
2. Extend our monopod stick thing
3. Take picture

Then proceeded to Ben's for latte and food.

Crossed off my bucket list of seeing 1,600 fake pandas!
Seriously though, watch for these cute pandas and if they're coming to your city.

90. the other pair

The biggest issue I have faced with the husband so far is that his socks tends to go missing. I don't know if there's a toyol (goblin) at home that steals his socks, or at night my cats throw the socks from the balcony, but we have around ten pairs of mismatched black socks, and I can't seem to find the other pair.

Every morning, Faheem will be shouting "B WHERE'S MY SOCKS?" and I will just say I DON'T KNOW WHY DON'T YOU ASK THE TOYOL (goblins?).

Okay, sorry my blog is full of boring marriage life type of things. Will try to put more cliche OOTD blog posts...

89. marriage life

We have only been married for 49 days so far and marriage life has been beautiful.

The number one question that people ask (and hint) is regarding:
When are you gonna have kids?

Oh my God, if I could barf when people ask about this.
Sure, we want to have kids! I love kids and always envisioned I would be a mom one day.
If we were confirmed having kids, I'd say "Alhamdulillah", thank you Allah for rezeki.
But pleeeeeaaaaaseeeee in Malay custom it's very "pantang" (taboo) to ask about these things.

Especially since we've been married for 49 days and even if we got "rezeki" on the first day, we should not talk about these things until three/four months because it's very "bad luck" to talk about these things.

Our rezeki is at His mercy and compassion.

Don't worry, if there are any good tidings we will let Facebook the world know,

88. the first prayer

After our solemnization, and photo ops and portraiture and what not, me and my husband finally settled into our bridal room. It was silence. Peaceful. It was around 8.30 pm, right after isyak prayers. The calm after the storm.

Right there and then, I rolled out the sejadah (prayer mat) he had given to me as one of the hantaran gifts, along with a telekung (garment women wear whilst praying). Instinctively, we decided to pray together. Solat jemaah.

The first prayer sealed the bond of husband and wife perfectly together. I knew the speed of my husband's prayer, his favourite surahs to read whilst he prayed, the angle of where he bent his head. It was a sweet, intimate moment, post prayer, when I kissed and salam-ed his hand.

For any bride-to-be's, I strongly suggest for you to pray with your husband. It is a sweet, tender moment you will remember forever.
