NYs Wedding

Image hosted by
When I was at NY's nikah reception a few weeks back , I was somewhat a little in a daze by the person that she has become. It took us an hour before we could congratulate and snap photos with her cos she was surrounded by hords of reporters and photographers the whole time. I was a in a bit of a shock then, and after that experience, I should have been prepared for the next reception, but, I definitely, was not!

The wedding venue was swarming with reporters, TV personalities, VIPs etc. As I stepped into the beautifully decorated garden, I almost had to pinch myself a few times to convince myself that it was all for real, that I was really at NY's wedding and that NY has become something of a personality, ie. she has fans and she is famous.

The whole time, I was sitting there, it seemed unreal. Could it be that NY, one of my best buddies from school was really now a celebrity, an idol to some?

It was a beautiful night though and I was in good company. MW (my other best buddy) Jar, a lifetime friend, both from Tun Fatimah days and I had promised to sit together and we had a great laugh reminiscing on the good ol days at school. Watching NY walk down the aisle, none of us could believe it was her. A girl who once had out of fashion permed hair AND braces. Something like duckling turned into a beautiful swan! That night, NY looked radiant and beautiful, almost like a princess. She looked perfect, in fact.

I somehow wish though that the wedding was a more personal one. One where perhaps, NY could possibly spend more time catching up with friends and family. But that's just me. It was of course, perhaps, the most beautiful wedding I've ever been too and I do hope most importantly, that NY got the wedding of her dreams!

N said, towards the end of the night, "do you think you'll have to fight through the crowd to get a picture with your NY?" Me: "I don't know, but this doesn't look promising.." ( took an hour before and the crowd was much much smaller then!!)

I did, however, get a photo and a hug from NY in the end.

As we hugged I said "You look so beautiful!"
NY said " It's all makeup. It's really just me underneath"

I went for a second hug before I left the stage. If I could, I would have hugged her for an hour longer, for old times sake, and for whatever else, cos I really don't know when I'll see her again...or even whether I will have a decent conversation with her in the next 10 years or so. Some people tell me to just watch her on TV to lepaskan rindu but that doesn't compensate. If I could.. I'd wrap up NY and MW and put them in bag to carry with me wherever I go! But that's insane lah kan?

Later, after a night if great talking and laughter, I hugged and kissed MW and Jar goodbye, I reflected on what NY said earlier. What she said wasn't all that right. Yes, it was a lot of makeup, the only thing is, she really is beautiful, inside and out. And she will always be so.

SO to NY, here's to a wonderful life of wedded bliss and may we see many, many little NY and Aidid juniors coming your way soon!!!

And...thanks for letting us be the first to take photos with you!

Next time we meet, I'll need an autograph!

hei..i saw the whole thing live on tv...she's so 'ayu' that night with fringe that refuse to 'sit' still..

can't imagine her as duckling though. with braces summore..ducks got teeth meh?

Blogger anedra said...

ariza: I suspect that she was pretty pissed with that flyaway fringe cos she was frowning like hell during the earlier part of the thing. We were thinking either:
1. she was tired (maybe..)
2. depa baru gaduh (NOT!)
3. dia kawin paksa (NOT!)
4. the fringe was bugging her (most probable)
belum confirm lagi!

Oh..and that duckling had teeth alright, with braces too! ;p

Tis i... your ugly duckling friend!!! Thanks a lot!! :P I am so touched by everything that you have posted here on your blog. And yes, you are truly one of a kind. Most forgiving best friend... (but then there is MW as well). After this we will try to meet up often yeah. It's easier now that we have a lot in common (marriage). Sorry you had to meet my husband for the first time on the bersanding night!! Duck!! Some friend I am...

And thank you everyone else who have had nothing but nice things to say about my night, and me and my husband..

FYI, I looked like I was frowning on that night because I was trying to look ayu and act like a f******* pemalu. Mum said, "tok sah dok sengih2, pandang kiri kanan macam monyet." Believe me, I had no 'shame'... I was among friends for crying out loud!!! So, no... it wasn't because I was tired or had just had a fight...

BTW, anedra... love your emotional outbursts in this blog lah. Reminds me of grandma comfort masa sekolah dulu kan???

nordz darling,
please note that I took extra care to write "duckling" andv NOT ""Ugly duckling " were neer ugly anyway, just a bit different looking then, but then again, none of us look the same (phew! THANK GOD kan??)

Aaahh..thanks for the explanation, we were kind of wondering and for a moment contemplating on doing a lil jig in front of you at the pelamin to make u smile, but that would have ruined the whole "ayu" thing huh???

Yes, Grandma Comfort is alive and kicking thru this blog!

You take care then!!!! And we'd better meet up soon!

I saw Dato' Shah Rezza on TV talking about the concept and the whole thing. It's his alright but can't remember the company's name pulak.

Anyway...I have hope here. You see I am wearing braces now. One day I'll be a swan. Woo hoo

10:37 PM  
Blogger anedra said...

narfnarf: your prince charming shall come yr way soon, INSYAALLAH. Well, at least you've got the pelamin figured out so that's one less problem when you do meet yr Mr Right huh?

Lollies: Macam tu..I pun nak pasang jugaklah!!
