Kak Siti got married today.

The bridegroom, Abang Shukeri

She officially became a wife with one lafaz only. Alhamdulillah. It was touching to see Daddy and Kak Siti all teary eyed.

After the solemnization ceremony, Marc, Lene and I were already bathed in sweat (there goes my makeup !) while carrying the hantaran trays and walking to the hall where the kenduri was held. Camera flashes were everywhere. My tudung kept going out of shape and I had to fix it every now and then. Not exactly a sight that I would want to get recorded on cameras.

It was a pretty busy day for the siblings and I, walking around being ushers and handing out bunga telur to every guests on their table.
So yeah, from 1030am right up until 430pm, we were busy bees !
Tiring gila okay.
But I’m glad everything went well, Alhamdulillah.

Oh, oh, I just had to post this photo of the oh-so-cute Abdul Rasheed, Kak Faridah’s son. He’s so adorable ! Cheeky too !

sins of pride.

I can’t remember where I got this from but I think it’s worth sharing.
It’s a list of some of the sins that pride gives birth to (ouch !):

Covetousness – because you believe you deserve something more than others.

Ungodly ambition – because you believe that you are most qualified, and the idea of someone else being preferred over you is an insult to your perceived worth.

Boasting – because everyone should know who you are and what you have accomplished.

Contention – because in picking fights you feel a sense of superiority over those who may (or may not) be in error.

Unthankfulness – because you deserve everything you get!

Selfishness – because others do not!

Self-deceit – because it’s easier to believe you are something, when in fact you are nothing.

A judgmental attitude – because you believe the errors of others are much more serious than your own.

Gossip – because you look so much better when telling others how awful someone else is. Mayo said that the proud “endeavor to build their own praise upon the ruins of others’ reputation.”

Complaining – because God should have consulted you before orchestrating the events of your day/life.

Hypocrisy – because you must hide the truth, your own failures, in order to avoid shame and accumulate praise.

Pride, envy, avarice — these are the sparks that have set on fire the souls of man. (Dante Alighieri)

it’s all coming back to me now.

Daddy’s blood test and checkup was postponed to April next year. The last checkup he had was in February this year which means no checkup for more than a year.
I am angry.
Angry at the fact that they couldn’t call or mail or text or use other means of communication to let Daddy know that it was postponed instead of him having to drive all the way there for nothing. What a waste of time, fuel and energy !
Okay so maybe it was not a total waste, he did get to take his new supply of medications.
I really don’t get these people.
Why the postponation ?
Haha, I know, postponation is not a word. It just sounded cool (and funny) in my head.
Let me rephrase that, why the postpone ??

I was in Shah Alam with Lene earlier, printing four copies of my thesis.
Then I left them with Pojie as she’s gonna hand them over to Chona who will then pass them to Farhan who’s responsible of bringing the whole class’ thesis for the hard cover binding process.

I’m tired.
I’m hungry.
I’m sad.
