Rainbow

Happy one year of engagementsary Mr! The past one year have been full of dramas of different genre. Full of different weather which eventually gave us rainbow till today. No doubt, there isn’t a perfect husband and wife material in this world because we are all flawed. It draws down on how we focus on each other strengths and help one another improve in terms of our weakness. No amount of thank you for you is ever enough for accepting a lady like who have no outer beauty to begin with unlike other girls out there. Thank you for looking beyond what Allah swt has created me externally despite my personality flawed in certain ways. If everyone says girls need to be treated like diamond or gem, i should also say that i need to treat you like one too because you’re human just like i am. If ever we have a son, one day, in shaa Allah, i pray he will follow your traits though i will make sure he will arrive on time for dates 😅🙊

With that, happy one year of rainbow my love ❤️

4 days more to the 100 days mark and finally down to 2 digit countdown.

Lots of love,

Ms SR

#SBxSRengagement

We held our Engagement after Zuhur prayers as discussed which was roughly around 1430 hours. My close family members started coming in around 1300 hours together with my representatives which was my grandmother’s little sister’s husband. I was getting ready in my room while they were strolling in with the the help of my close friend. On that day, i had trouble with my hijab for the first time because i was trying to wear a headpiece over it and it was my first time ever. Thankfully, my close friend came over and rescued me. Plus, i did not have book any make-up artist. So, i did my own make-up for the first time and my Engagement dress was bought by Mr Fiance at a good deal since Ayuapprels was having sale few months back before we even finalise our Engagement date. Honestly, i always go out with bare face so on the actual day with make-up on, i felt so unsettle and anxious because i felt it wasn’t me. Actually i felt ugly with it, thoughts of a low esteem girl but little sister kept telling me i looked pretty. I only calmed down few hours later.

Initial plan was to sit at the living room and made my room out of bound since both mum and i was trying to make space for my upcoming wedding bedroom for future husband and me in the future, so it was rather unpleasant looking. But mission failed miserably as usual.

Mr Fiance lived exactly two blocks away from me and it is only roughly 5 to 10 minutes walk or maybe even faster. So when Mr Fiance texted me and said that his family side just left the house, i started to be more anxious and nervous. Best part, i was hiding in the room with my close friend and we both were trying to keep calm by doing some, well, i shall leave it behind my room doors only then. The feeling that i am going to be someone’s Fiancee in a few minutes time just suddenly came into me and it seems unbelievable.

I had a short conversation with my close friend and i said that after all those hurdles, i found my answer that i have been searching. I have always tried to find the person but i guess the person has all along been in my life since young just that Allah send him back to my life again at the right time because maybe, Allah feels i was ready by then. Even i asked myself if i was ready to be a Fiancee since there will be a lot of more responsibilities and i am the best i can ever be to an amazing guy like him.

A short reflection and flashback of memories just struck me and Alhamdulillah, i am glad i went through it all because now, i am engaged to the most understanding and supportive Fiance. I pray our future will be as sweet as now or even better.

As that conversation and reflections was ongoing, the noises outside suddenly quieten down and i could see his family streaming in. Then i got asked to sit outside and i started having my tachycardia moments. My face was damn stress and awkward as shared by many. While the representatives from both sides of our family were discussing and talking, suddenly both Mr Fiance’s mother and grandmother came up to me to put on the ring on my finger on behalf of their son/grandson. I was shocked and i starting to feel that i was having rigors instead. It happened too fast and i wasn’t ready actually because initially, i thought the ring scene will come in after the representatives finished discussing. Even Mr Fiance’s best friend was shocked and quickly rushed in to take picture of the ring scene.

After that, the representatives continued with their discussion again followed by prayers. The whole event went smoothly and subsequently, we had short photo shoot by Mr Fiance’s best friend while some start to fill their tummy with food and drinks. That day was the first time our fathers met and started their first conversation since our mothers knew each other since we were young. It was such a beautiful sight to see. After Mr Fiance’s family left, my Fiance came by and looking at his face reaction seeing me, i bet it left him stunned till he forget to salam my grandfather. All the photos are available at my Facebook album instead. I shall upload some for the eyes. Try to spot my Mr Fiance!

After the event end, there was a lot of cleaning need to be done and Mr Fiance helped me out and we proceeded to his place after that to help with packing of the food to give to his neighbours. All is well now and it was the most memorable day of my life thus far! I can’t wait for our wedding day and the life we will be building together after that.

That sums up my Engagement day with a Red Theme if you can see it. Its a norm that most engaged couple will apply a house by then, so do we. I shall blog about our housing application experience next time.

Lots of love,

Ms SR ♥

#SBxSRengagement preparations

Its been 1 month and 25 days since we got engaged, Alhamdulillah!

I wasn’t used to acknowledging him as my boyfriend back then before we got engaged since we were not in any relationship. We were just dating and getting to know each other better. God is the best planner of all planners, so here we are as Fiance Fiancee! I am adapting well to the fact that Mr SB is my Fiance now but instead, i acknowledge him as my boyfriend instead.

There wasn’t any much preparations needed for our engagement since we opted for a simple engagement between both of our families. However, being the eldest child and first daughter and grand-daughter, it can never work out the way you want it to be but Alhamdulillah, the preparations and event went smoothly through the period of 2-4 weeks.

The waiting game towards my Engagement day was exciting yet nerve wrecking because i am working shift and i could barely have off days to sort my Engagement preparations. Few checklists of mine back then was food catering, Engagement cake and chocolates. Not to forget, the Engagement Ring! Weird as it sounds, my love story has its own uniqueness which i adore greatly and it turned out to be rather similar to my parents. My parents bought their engagement ring way back during their dating time and similarly, we bought our rings a year back when we were both dating. It was an impromptu decision and the ring hunting moment was memorable for me. So rings was out of our checklist.

Decorated with love, by yours truly.

I have been eyeing on Zuranskitchen ever since few years ago and i told myself that if i ever get engaged or married, i would love to have my cake designed by her. So my dream came true, i booked my cake with Zuranskitchen and it took quite a few exchange of emails before the order got finalised. Order got finalised around 2 weeks plus before the Engagement day. Mr Fiance and me will always try to dig out secrets from each other in regards to our cake but of course, mission failed badly. I love how the cake turned out to be because it was what i wish to gift to my Fiance back then. So if anybody interested, you can check out Zuranskitchen at Instagram! She is my cousin’s friend so the discussion we had went pretty smooth.

Mr Fiance knows how much i love chocolates more than him though, so we settled chocolates as another gift tray of ours. Since chocolates melt, i only prepared the gift tray a day before our Engagement day. I went to shop for all various kind of chocolates with my Mother and little sister after work which was two days before the Engagement day. For every chocolate that i planned to put in the gift tray, i double by two or three times because they want to eat it too! So i did not only made Mr Fiance happy but made my family happy too. Thankfully, i was on office hours due to some teaching programme during the Engagement week, so it ease my thoughts on the preparations. It took me a few hours to design the chocolate gift tray and i love how it turn out to be.

Being the first great grand-daughter and the first niece etc, my aunties got pretty much excited over my Engagement that my aunties insisted on sponsoring another gift tray for Mr Fiance. After much persuasion by aunties, i agreed. So settle for a simple design and it got delivered on the actual day. I am so blessed to have supportive family members and aunties. Alhamdulillah, it is Mr Fiance rezeki.

It took a lot of preparations for the house since the guy side will be coming over. My mum put in a lot of efforts to the extend of buying cloth to make a backdrop since Mr Fiance’s best friend will be our photographer of the day. I told mum my rough planning of the day and how the preparations schedule should be like since i am quite anal in terms of scheduling of things. Moreover, i did not have any other help from my extended family since it was just a small close event.

Both Mr Fiance and i are so blessed to have good support system around us in terms of family and also friends. For all the prayers and the help indirectly towards the event, we are very grateful. Overall, without Allah, we won’t see this day coming because no matter how much a human plan in regards to their life but if Allah says its not the time yet, it will never ever happen. We are halfway to achieving our dream goal together. We have many things to learn about each other but In shaa Allah, we will pull through every hurdles like how we have always been doing.

I shall blog regarding the main Engagement event in another post soon!

Lots of love,

Ms SR ♥
