Sunday Raya

Hi there! Hope everyone had a great Sunday like i did with mama and the kids doing our Hari Raya open house gallivanting! Happy to share with you that i have been asked to organize another friend's daughter's wedding in may next year! this is my 3rd time being a wedding planner! Yeay! Its a true honor for me because my friend ni is a big time celebrity! and he has a beautiful daughter who is to be married! lucky guy la yang dapat anak kawan i ni!

Apparently the  two weddings that i helped plan was much acclaimed and the two families were very happy! It all started when my friend asked me to organize his son's wedding (can't mention the name unfortunately) simply because they thought since I have been doing our TV3's Jom Heboh all these years, planning a wedding would be a walk in the park for me! 

Hmmm...Jom Heboh and being a wedding planner?! well I took the challenge and found out that i have such great passion doing it! Actually there were similarities especially in the meticulous planning i.e checklists after checklists, running orders, rehearsals and of course timing of every sequence!

Of course good teamwork is ultimate and i had a great team for both weddings! Actually, i could this again and again because its so satisfying to see the bride and bridegroom walking down the aisle all happy and smiling! you can't beat this scene seeing the couple looking forward to start their new life as husband and wife! and who knows it could be a good post retirement job for me! can ah?!

Laaaa...just look at me here! i'm so diverted from my original plan to blog about our today's hari raya gallivanting! what i actually wanted to share is that it's so nice to see Rashad and Hannah meeting their almost never met before cousins! well, second cousins because they are my cousins kids! low and behold somehow they look like my kids and could pass as siblings! 

I'm so happy for them to have met and from now on I will ensure my kids meet their relatives and second cousins. hoping that when they grow up they will not be strangers!

My father used to do this when i was a kid! Having 14 uncles and aunties, i had hundreds of cousins and second cousins and this is only on my father's side whilst my mom had 5 siblings! he would ensure i know them and I'm proud that even till today i know almost all of them. we still keep in touch especially at this age i will attend their kids weddings pulak! 

Would like to write more but its getting late by my standards! I'm an early bird and enjoy the morning more than any part of the day! hope you guys have a great week ahead after the long raya week! I'm so raring to go and its full steam ahead! my boss is such a workaholic and even bbm me on sundays! i don't mind because to me he is the best boss one can ever have!

I'm so grateful for all the support and encouragement urging me to continue writing! You guys are amazing! so blessed with all the comments! thanks a million! 

And yes, its merdeka week! lets celebrate our 55th merdeka with all our hearts and passion! Our country is the best in the world bar none! 

Good night my friends!

my amandiri?

welcome to amandiri! this is my first attempt to blog. not much of a writer but i have been told to just go with the flow and write whatever comes to mind! err..that could be dangerous actually! 

To Rashad, my 12 year old going on to 18, daddy is blogging in the hope you wud also follow suit and distract yourself from your iphone n reduce downloading the games and music videos! you scare me because you remind me of daddy himself! LOL!! our dissimilarity here is that i never wanted grow up! 

To my baby Hannah! my little princess who aspires to be a doctor just because she wants to take care of daddy and her mommy! i could not find a better honest to goodness intention from a 10 year old duit pencen will go to your tution fees la nampaknye! no worries i will get discounts from you for all my medical bills!

To faris and haziq my 20 and 18 year olds, i know it would not be cool for daddy to write about you guys! i will figure out something soon! i love you both so much!! daddy will always remember the wonderful times especially when you guys washed my hair near my bed and almost flooded the room much to mommy's chagrin! LOL!! dont get me started...all the stories will keluar nanti kan..

my amandiri is all about peaceful spirits and inner peace.. i find solace and comfort when i reminisce the precious times and kodak moments i have with my four kids..we parents do this i guess! 

its going to be another great weekend especially we msians are all in the hari raya open house mood kan! enjoy the delicious food but as i always remind myself, " id, makan in moderation!! and go to the gym after that!!"

Till we meet again! 

p.s best jugak blogging ni kan! hehehe
