My father may not be perfect, but he's doing what he does best, being my dad!

The greatest thing a father can do to his children is to love their mother!

The three of us...Sis Teh, Sis in law Jehan & myself gave a potluck hitea for our dad in conjunction of father's day.

he maybe quiet....but his silence speaks louder than words!

with the queen of his heart

lovely selection of home made food

the chocolate cake & fried mee sanggul are from me.

the chefs

No matter how far we move away with our husbands, no matter how many children we have, no matter how many grandchildren we will have & no matter how old we get...bapak... we will always be your little girls!

And that...we love you dearly & greatly!

I've been very busy lately with...what else...
another wedding...Sarah's wedding.
She's my hubby's niece.

Still got wedding meh!...even though Ramadhan is just around the corner.'s the call of nature.

Anyway....i didnt know that i could create something which i've never tried before...and it works!

Ahaa! first attempt of making those *hantaran* n boleh tahan juga ehh!

It starts with the *khatam quran*.

The pelamin is gorgeous!...rasa macam berada ditaman...

And the *malam berinai*.....

She's a very happy go-luckybubbly n...LOUD hehehe!....girl. That's our Sarah.....

Cantik kan!...those inai & the bride....

Teringat dulu-duluu...those were the days.
Tapi dulu lain...tak da those kind of inai.
We used the real fresh leaves of inai yang sudah digiling n dibubuh dihujung jari through out the nite sampai nak tido pun susah with our hands stretched out....rasa terseksa yang amat sangat!

Saat yang dinantikan......hari pernikahan...

Aku nikahkan dikau dengan jelitawan pilihan hati....

i'm yours n you're mine.......

And the next day...hari persandingan.

Nice wedding...good food!

Raja sehari....

With....Pak alang n Mak alang

Selamat Pengantin Baru Sarah & Irman.
Semoga berkekalan & bahagia selalu hingga keanak cucu....AMIN....

Funny how time flies. Just days ago my sayang Lukman was back for his semester break...and now we've just sent him back to his college in B.Mertajam to re-enter his 5th semester. 

Hoping he could be transfered to Shah Alam for his degree where his siblings are there to attend to him.

I regret not spending much time with him...cos i was so occupied with so many things!
Anyway...Hari Raya is coming soon & it will be wonderful to see all my loved ones back home again!

Okay...where was i....i seem to be running out of the topic.

One of the things that i'm busy with for the past week was the royal wedding.

The wedding of the princess of Duli Yang Amat Mulia Raja DiHilir Perak...Yg Mulia Raja Nor Azwina with Yg Berbahagia En.Christopher Daud Grant at the Istana Raja DiHilir Perak.

The wedding took 4 days...and it's not that i'm busy helping with the preparation but... i'm busy beading my baju kurung for the special That i will show in my next entry.(my own creation)

It was a beautiful wedding...everything was done with proper planning and very detail!

It was very malay traditional....from the setting, the bride & bride groom's attire, door gifts... to even the songs & performances.

The first day ceremony was the *khatam Quran*.

It was a small ceremony....about 50 people were invited only.

The *Khatam Quran* ceremony was also witnessed by the mother of the bride Duli Yg Amat Mulia Raja Puan Muda Perak Raja Nor Mahani.

With My mum & the royal princess....

Oh must be the face is so bloated!

I've made a strawberry cheese cake n placed it in a white box with a yellow ribbon on it....a gift to the princess.

On the second night....Istiadat Persandingan & Akad Nikah.

Even the tents are beautiful...with colours of the Perak,yellow & white.

Unfortunately...we were only able to watch the ceremony through the tvs that had been placed at every tents.

These are the door gifts of the first night....two boxes of black & yellow songket where the tops are sewn of the famous tekad benang emas or golden thread.

The third night...Istiadat Persandingan & Santapan.

It was attended by some of the royalties....
Duli Yg Maha Mulia Yg Dipertuan Agung & Permaisuri Agung, Duli Yg Amat Mulia Raja Muda Perak & Raja Puan Besar, Duli Yg Maha Mulia Sultan Perlis & Sultanah, Perdana Menteri Dato Seri Najib & Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, Duli Yg Amat Mulia Raja Muda Perlis & Duli Yg Amat Mulia Che Puan Muda...& some of the other royalties & VVIPs.

Tempat Persandingan....the bride & bride groom wore the Pakaian Puteri Perak in yellow songket. 

Unfortunately i was unable to snap the picture...

These are the door gifts of the day's ceremony....

The two yellow & black tepak sireh are also sewn with the benang emas and is fill with a marble like egg and some coconut sweets....very exquisite!

And the fourth day was the Istiadat Bersiram Sampat.

The *Panca Persada*

Talk about bersiram or shower...everyone seems to be ready with the given umbrellas... protection against the unexpected showers!

The procession of the newly wed to the *Panca Persada*.

The newly wed came down from the *Panca Persada* to pay respect to both parents.

Now...cepat lariii!....Upacara *bercuak* bermula.

Duli Yg Amat Mulia Raja DiHilir Perak, Raja Jaafar was holding the water hose to spray to the audience...

And...Duli Yg Teramat Mulia Raja Puan Besar Perak Tengku Zara was also having FUN spraying the water around....

Raja Puan Besar Perak,Tengku Zara is always at her best even when she's soaked wet!

Even so....the bride groom was the most having fun with the splashing!!

With cousins Puteri Rozie & Puteri Rozza and my parents.

As always...weddings are the time where we meet friends & relative.

We're all soaked wet! There goes my shoes & handbag...

Lastly...having the chance to be photographed
with the newly wed.

We had a blast time!

It's a wedding of the year.....
