My Solemnization Dais - credit to Ikea

The idea of solemnization dais been inspired by Ikea :) We went there and heart-ed them..tak caya? cuba tengok gambar kat bawah ni..siap merajuk dengan en suami sbb die tak restu mula2 nak beli (en tunang time tu ye)

i really love white and red combi~

i bought mine too~

I wonder Ikea management ever imagine their tirai2 n deco gave me these inspiration?haha so Ikea..please give extra voucher ke..new sofa set..or maybe choose me as your ambassador? haha berangaannnn~

i wished for a 'modern and hot' solemnization..for me..i already achieved my target..i bought two tall vases back in my hometown and asked kakak bridal to deco as what i told to.

each vase filled by plain water (put in few drops of syrup for colouring) +
white ribbon +
red roses

red pillows+white carpet

as i will be wearing cream+grey..the dais colour need to be outstanding for matching..jangan pilih baju pengantin sama warna dengan pelamin tau~

there were four paper lanterns as additional deco.

i love the big love..small loves hanging with bling2 at the back..
and most importantly..i love en suami~

please ask/mail me for quotation..if you wish to rent all my love..opss en suami excluded from the package ye~~hehehe :)

Do'a Compilation - Bride To Be

There are few do'a i would like to share for all bride to be..disunatkan berdoa untuk keberkatan..apa kata korang try..

During my time, what i did was solat hajat banyak2..baca doa tolak hujan..berselawat..solat istikharah..mintak org2 lain tolong doakan time bagi kad kawen..but there are more you can do..ohh one more thing..dekat2 nak kawen kan biasa kelam kabut..penat semua tu kan..i banyak dengar lagu from Maher Zain especially InsyaAllah tu..sangat menenangkan..please avoid from
practising benda syirik/khurafat cam baling baju semua ni semua k..

Doa tolak bala from here
Segala puji bagi Allah yang menyelamatkan aku dari apa yang ia memberi percubaan dengan sesuatu dan ia mengutamakan aku dari banyaknya makhluk.

Doa agak hujan berhenti from here
Ya Allah, turunkan hujan di sekitar kami, jangan kepada kami. Ya Allah, berilah hujan kedataran tinggi, beberapa anak bukit, perut lembah dan beberapa tanah yang menumbuhkan pepohonan.

Doa memudahkan sebarang urusan from here
Ya Allah, tidak ada kemudahan kecuali sesuatu yang Engkau permudahkan, Engkau menjadikan kedukaaan itu mudah sekiranya Engkau kehendaki

Doa sebelum bersetubuh dengan halal partner from here
Dengan nama Allah, Ya Allah, Jauhkan kami dari syaitan, dan jauhkan syaitan untuk mengganggu apa yang Engkau rezekikan kepada kami.

I believe marriage is starting new chapter of life..let us improve ourselves with this do'a from here

Ya Allah Ya Rahman Ya Rahim
Kami memohon kepadaMu agar majlis perkahwinan pada hari ini diberkati olehMu
Ya Allah Ya Rahman Ya Rahim
Kami menadah kedua belah tangan untuk memohon
Agar Engkau berkati, rahmati dan redhai pasangan pengantin baru ini
Kurniakanlah kepada si suami ibarat keteguhan cinta Saidina Ali kepada Fatimah
Kekuatan untuk menjadi suami dan ayah
Yang mampu memandu, membimbing dan mendidik
Isteri dan anak-anak menuju ke jalan yang Engkau redhai
Anugerahkanlah pula kepada si isteri kehebatan kasih Saidatina Fatimah kpd Ali
Keupayaan untuk menjadi isteri dan ibu
Yang mampu menjaga maruah diri serta mengasuh
Anak-anak yang menjadi amanah
Kurniakanlah kepada mereka Ya Allah
Zuriat yang soleh solehah
Dan agar berkekalan mempelai ini
Sehingga ke dalam syurga
Ya Allah Ya Rahman Ya Rahim
Teguhkan iman kami
Mantapkan aqidah kami
Mudahkan urusan kami
Murahkan rezeki kami
Halalkan makan minum kami
Berkatilah kehidupan kami
Dan matikanlah kami dalam Iman dan Islam
Masukkanlah kami ke dalam syurgaMu
Hindarkanlah kami dari azab nerakaMu
Ya Allah Ya Rahman Ya Rahim
Ampunkanlah dosa kami,
Dosa kedua orang tua kami,
Dosa ahli keluarga kami
Sesungguhnya kami telah banyak melakukan dosa
Baik yang zahir mahupun yang batin
Yang kecil mahupun yang besar
Sesungguhnya tiada siapa yang dapat mengampunkan dosa kami Ya Allah
Maka ampunkanlah dosa kami Ya Ghaffar
Ya Allah Ya Rahman Ya Rahim
Berilah kekuatan kepada kami membina individu Muslim yang taat kepadaMu
Keluarga Muslim yang mengamalkan nilai hidup Islam
Masyarakat Muslim yang tinggi nilai ukhuwwahnya
Dan negara yang baik serta mendapat keampunanMu
Ya Allah Ya Rahman Ya Rahim
Jadikanlah kami yang telah berkahwin ini
Menjadi contoh yang hidup kepada pengantin baru
Dalam melayari bahtera rumahtangga yang kadangkala tenang dan kadangkala bergelora
Kurniakanlah mereka kekuatan iman dalam menempuh segala cabaran yang mendatang

Amin Ya Rabbal Alamin.

amin~ pasrah and go with the flow~

Home or Hotel? Multipurpose Hall or Beach?

What say you? I terpanggil to review my reception and solemnization venue after reading entry from gorgeous ex bride, Heed.

Before starting to review and sharing my ideas, please note that my hometown is in Terengganu..Na Na Na Na...Ganu Kite~

Solemnization Venue - Home Sweet Home
  • I had two options. either venue to be at home (rumah sebenar ye..bukan rumah tumpangan or sewa rumah orang lain) or nearest mosque (bukan surau ye).
  • Thinking of pros and cons..mak and i decided venue to be our home sweet home. why? bukan masjid tak bagus...tempat tu sangat suci..but I was thinking solemnization would be nicer to be at home..rasa cam dekat dengan family..guests pun closest families and friends je..lagipun I planned for a solemnization dais..takkan nak buat kt masjid kan..orang keluar masuk semua..ok done!
Reception Venue - Open area/space in front of Home Sweet Home
  • Part ni ade conflict sket..in the first place..i was proposing reception to be outside from our house as solemnization was done there. Reason sebab taknak susahkan mak ayah coz we are not coming from soo big families..tak cukup kaki tangan to monitor the event..i rasa kesian sangat kat Mak and Pak peluh2 bagai..kelam kabut semua..at least if we have our wedding outside..rumah pun selamat dari kunjungan manusia2 yg tidak diingini, rumah tak sepah, takde kelam kabut panas2..just meet the guests..senyum2..snap pics...
  • So i did surveyed for Awana Kijal (the nearest hotel from home - about 5 minutes kalau jam ye kawan2), Mesra Mall Multipurpose Hall (3minutes driving)...siap jumpa and mintak quotation bagai la..i let go Mesra Mall Multipurpose Hall as the price was soo unreasonable..dewan kosong je MYR5k...sila take note kawan2...ni kawasan Trg ye..kerusi..meja...platform semua another costs.fine!
  • Now proceed with Awana Kijal..at very last minute Pak disagreed..reason nanti orang kampung cakap berlagak macam kaya..orang taknak datang sebab malu..I was really tersangat la really upset..there goes people mentality..its difficult when we were dealing with people kan..haisshh..i felt very upset as we have to think impression org lain aka 'incoming guests yg belum confirmed attendance' rather than thinking ourselves..siapa yang nak kawen sekarang ni kan..Mak said dengar je la cakap Pak tu...mesti ada hikmah di sebaliknya..basically i dont have any problem sanding kat rumah..but i takut hujan..nanti x selesa..nak jalan pun lecak..confirm i sangat sedih kalau kawen tapi hujan lebat sampai banjir...huuu can i say anything?ok fine! pasrah jela~
  • Fyi, rumah kitorang dekatt dengan pantai..pernah la jugak terfikir pasal nak buat wedding kat sana kan..tapi taknak la ambil risiko..dahla pilih date time2 hujan..ribut petir ombak bergelora karang..ade je yg x kawen nanti..ok another fine!
  • So any other option? Home Sweet Home jela..we were lucky as our neighbour sudi pinjamkan tanah dia kat depan for reception..khemah2 bagai..ok confirmed!
After solemnization and reception..memang ada hikmah sebenarnya buat kat rumah..first thing..Mak and Pak sangat happy walaupun penat sangat..alhamdulillah tak hujan dan tiada kehilangan barang dalam rumah..ramai sangat orang datang even panas berpeluh2..alhamdulillah food and doorgift semua cukup...the rest yang minor2 flaws..i will share later..we can't make everyone satisfied tapi kami selamat dinikah dan disandingkan..Thank you Allah and Thank you all~

see..siapa kata kawen kat rumah tak cantik? siap bersalam dengan hubby berbackgroundkan rumah~

My Reception Dais

Its time to reveal my reception dais and where did i get the idea of it..
  • First i decided the colours for reception..as i love tiffany blue soo much..and people always say pink and white are very good combination for almost ladies..very sweet and cute..so i made my mind for choosing Tiffany Blue, Pink and White as major colours.
  • Second i browsed b2be blogs, bridal and any relevant wedding websites on current trend and dais design. I prefer unique dais..instead of just normal panel petak2..i plan for more than that.
sorry as i lost the link as the research been done more than a year..anyway tq very much for the ideas korang..sangat berguna..found the similiarities from these 3 pics? ade pokok,white, fences and juntaian2?
  • Third, i designed my own dais..banyak kali tau edit2 before tdo design n sampai mimpi2..hehe..nak tengok final layout?
Legend : dark blue = back panels cover with pink curtain
purple = tree with fresh flowers
pink boxes = fresh flowers stand
blue circles = bunga pahar
grey = fence
green dots = dedaun2
  • Next, i surveyed available bridal house who can make my dream dais with reasonable price. Compare the price please ladies..tanye banyak2 soalan..biar mak andam jemu n boring sampai nak muntah asal u puas hati..please DONT assume k.bayar mahal2..kene la tanya banyak2 kn..
  • Btw, credit to Pak (my dad) yang bersusah payah potong pokok belakang rumah and made fences..i tolong cat sikit2 je..sangat terharu~~tq Pak~
What do you think? For me personally..80% i love the dais..how about 20%? ingat nak tambah bunga lagi kat pokok and flower stands..kak bridal lupa bukak lampu chandelier.. :( tp Alhamdulillah hari sangat terang..lampu chandelier kt khemah je pasang..

lampu terpasang~ yeay~
pokok tu ori tau~

saya sangat suke tempat duduk die..boleh duduk rapat2 dengan hubby :)

lampu chandelier lupa pasang :(~

bunga kekwa dengan juntaian bling2~

ni la fence yang Pak buat~

full dais..sorry as 2 fresh flowers stands tersorok kt belakang..but they were actually betul2 depan curtain pink tu~ refer my layout for details..
bunga pahar must be in tiffany blue..matching dengan en suami and me~

Exchange links? On Streamyx :)

Title entry cam ads tv On Cinta ajer.. layannnn..

Streamyx bro came to our house this morning for internet connection setup..teet teett..free wireless connection in the house!! nak bukti? hehehe see below pic :)

sukenye~

Why Streamyx? actually we were planning for Unifi..nak la guna latest technology kn..en suami even registered at Unifi's booth. We went to Telekom for phone connection tapi rupe2nye our housing area still using old cable..agak frust..cam x caya area Ampang yg maju ini rupanya masih mundur~so lesson learn : check internet connection first before register..lucky Unifi and Streamyx are siblings..so we can switch to Streamyx without any contract penalty..once Unifi cable upgraded to our area, we can switch back to Unifi (provided install dulu Unifi then cancel Streamyx)..cepatlaaa~

Unifi 5 MB @ MYR 149.. Streamyx 4 MB @ MYR 140..
Again..as our housing area guna cable lama..only Streamyx 1 MB available..which cost MYR 110..
Okla tu..save cost..still laju ape..alhamdulillah~

Soooooo... more time to stay online..guna jari ajerrss..anyone to promote your blog? or want to exchange links with me? paste your url/blog address kat bawah ye...layan diri..jangan malu2~will try my best to visit your blog and follow u too..insyaAllah~

From Kimberley to Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel

Frust and dissapointed with internet connection for past few days..can't wait for Streamyx~~

Ok..as promise..review for our honeymoon..hurm where to start?

Mama, adik en suami sent us to KLIA around 9am..we took Cathay Pacific with direct 3 hours flight from KL to HK..we were very excited and en suami googled weather forecast - colder than Malaysia..hehe dan2 pakai sweater in case sejuk kn..we ate lunch n went to toilet siap2 for any emergency tibe2 kan..dalam flight...en suami suddently said " tahukah anda..HK airport is one of the most dangerous/difficult airport to land as the airport was built on the island..." thank you Mr Pilot for safe landing..i bet Mr Pilot must be handsome and experience..sape setuju? :p


Once we reached HK airport, the weather was 21deg c..agak sedih mule2 as we thought weather should be below than that..even weather forecast said temp around 5 deg c..tak bersyukur betul..Astagfirullahalazim~ but actually even 21deg c...it was very windy..sekali dtg angin...wiuuu~~

Ann Travel pick us up at airport and brought us to Kimberley Hotel, Kowloon. Room not so big but we loved the area..memang betul2 tengah bandar.. Schedule free and easy..pagi je ade trip naik bas..after lunch..we can go visit by ourselves..From the package, we went to Fishing Village, Ginseng Shop, Jade Shop, Hong Kong Island, n more historical places. Jom kite review pic k..

this picture taken on the 31dec2010..en suami bought me this devil's cekak..muka sangat penat as too many HK citizens running all around waiting for new year countdown..sgt crowded..

sorry tak sempat snap pic new year sbb kitorg x sure kt mana diorg nak pasang bunga api..tup tup..by the time pasang..view kitorg tercover oleh pokok :(

before countdown..sempat snap pic with abang police yang garang x senyum..momantai momantai~

police officer was on duty, watching and guiding the crowds to the centre of HK few hours before countdown..obviously we felt save walking aprrox 2km..saje jalan malam2 meniup udara segar..see..i was wearing sweater present from my younger sis..promote Ireland in HK..tapi muka ada iras2 abg polis x?

this pic taken after new year..we missed to watch fireworks from this area..hehe u can only see devil's hair band with HK building as background.

cantik x? the buildings were actually located at HK island..our place and the island separated by the ocean..HK has few underground tunnels since 1930s (if not mistaken)..sangat lame..

we went to Spice Restaurant @ Kowloon promoted by a guy yang lalu lalang bagi brochure..spice is an Asian restaurant..i think the owner from Pakistan..tengok bill tu? huhu..divide each price by 2.8..thats the exact price in MYR..agak mahal tapi nk makan nasi punya pasal..pejam mate je la ye..owhh..there's belly dancing by two ladies..hurmm..not ladies..by mak2 kot..suke la tu en suami 'terpaksa' cuci mate yeeeeee..

nasi goreng indonesia..sambal belacan not so belacan..satay so-so la..fried rice x pedas...i still miss Malaysian foods~

snap this pic time jalan2..cute kn kete biru tu..i wonder its a car..or small lorry..less vehicles on the road..citizens prefer to walk..less carbon dioxide too..

maju ke hadapan~

this is Bohemia Flower..HK national flower..snap pic @ 9am..start freezing~
we went to Causeway Bay..tourist guide said..the sand is fake..meaning..HK government brought in South China Sea punye sand to ensure the sand keep clean. Government will maintain the sand every 3 years..nampak terang but it was 21deg C.
can u spot Jackie Chan's palace? cepat teka~fyi..Jackie Chan is a neighbour to Andy Lau..both of them made special road to their private houses for safety reason..
we went to Fishing Village..the last fishing village left in HK..like fishing village in Malaysia..more or less the same except there are still fishermen who lives in their boats plus billionaires to rent 'parking lot' for their private boat..
welcome to HK Disneyland~
masuk2 dekat entrance..
fence berbentuk mickey~
mickey~ when we reached our floor, we heard donald duck announcing the level..
sangat cute~

haipp..haipp..please do not disturb pengantin~

we overnight at Disneyland Hotel with HKD2k ++/night..approx MYR 1k++ ..i wonder how travel agent can make profit with such cheap package~

the little mermaid~

7 dwarfs..eh cop2..mane lagi 2?

en suami menahan diri dari pancaran cahaya matahari..what a lovely guy holding cute minnie mouse umbrella~

they are real people..cantik sangat~ i wonder how do they look like without make up..

cinderella castle on day light~

mickey, goofy and cartoon characters' houses..tapi semua tipu belaka sebab x boleh masuk..another bohemia's in da house..

en suami with disneyland recycle bin~

i want one~ big one~
christmas tree centre of disneyland~

mickey's waffle as supper..tq en suami for the treat~

space traders - i hate roller coasters~
tired face 6am @ HK airport..penat gile tapi taknak balik~

Overall..i love to be in HK..halal food are available..easy to shop as we were staying middle of HK..the package also very affordable..accomodations were ok..

My advise..for those who wish to plan overseas honeymoon..especially for bride2be..do saving ladies..when you use your own pocket money..you will appreciate every moments that you have together with your partner..i kumpul duit dari zaman uni..i believe most of you can do the same too..tapi kalau ada families yg nk sponsor..lagila bestkn..

Please visit en suami's blog for more pics.

There will be special entry soon..focusing on what to bring..what to do when you are travelling outside Malaysia..for those who always travelling..your are welcome for opinions too..jom sharing2..

There will be 15 minutes fireworks performance video soon~~

P/S : temperature in HK dropped from 21 deg C @ 30 Dec 2011 to 5 deg C @ 2 Jan 2011.
