Hunting Part 1: Wedding Venue

Assalamu’alaikum, gorgeous!

Last week, my bf, my mom, my sister, and I had visiting some of wedding venues in Jakarta. We went to Departemen Pertanian (Deptan), Aneka Tambang (Antam), Rumah Saya, Balai Makarti Muktitama Depnakertrans, BangDa, and Tamansari Persada Raya Club. I was sooo exhausted and dizzy because of this. Geez, I don’t have any clue on knowing which is the best venue for our wedding.  Some of them are nice but out of budget, and some of them are fully booked till 2011 (wooow).. Some venues that I like are Deptan, AnTam, and Tamansari Persada Raya Club.  But only Tamansari Persada Raya Club that still available for our wedding day. We just love the idea of outdoor wedding pool side party, but we have doubts on the weather. If it’s raining, than it’ll totally ruined the wedding party.. 😯 However without any second thought, we decided to book the date first. And we’ll decide it later, until we’ve already checked all the venue nomination.

Unfortunately we can’t see the venue of Balai Makarti Muktitama, because it was on the weekend, and the workers aren’t working at that day. Besides, there’s no wedding occation on that day, that’s why the auditorium is locked. We can only see the auditorium through the glass. 😆  My mom, and my sister like this venue. Because it has its own building that separated from the working building. They also have a mosque, so we could do the akad on the mosque. This venue is definitely on the nomination list too. 😀 readmore Hunting Part 1: Wedding Venue

Sudden Proposal

Assalamu’alaikum gorgeous!

On Sunday, April 11th 2010, I got proposed. But it doesn’t like the regular proposal that couples usually going through.. <you know, with rings, bunch of close relatives, blablabla> hahaha.. Well actually it was supposed to be a “introduction” day between two families.  But somehow, after my bf’s dad had a good conversation with my dad, my bf’s family decided to “ask” my dad about proposing me for his son.  Wow, it’s kinda shocked us (me, and my parents), because we thought that “the proposal” will be discussed after both families know each other (at least not at the first time they meet..LOL)

When I ask my bf about it after his family got back home, he just say, “well honey, that’s my parents, when they feel sure, that you and your family are a nice, and religious family, they feel relieved and save to have a daughter in law like you, and to have a new relative like your family. They’re simple. And they trust me.” hahahaha… i was laughed, and very happy at the same time. So, from now on, we have to prepare for our upcoming wedding, which will be held insya Allah on XX-th (censored 😀 ) October 2010. Yup, the date is settled, for a practical reason. 🙂

——

Hari Minggu, tanggal 11 April 2010, saya dilamar. Tapi proses lamarannya bukan seperti kebiasaan orang Indonesia kalau mau meminang wanita, tahu kan yang datang ramai-ramai sekeluarga besar, bawa seserahan ini itu, tukar cincin, dll, hahahaha.. Sebenarnya saat itu lebih ke acara perkenalan antara dua keluarga. Tapi entah bagaimana, setelah Bapak-nya sang pacar ngobrol panjang lebar dengan Ayah saya, keluarga pacar pun memutuskan untuk “meminta” saya untuk anaknya kepada Ayah saya. Wooow, kagetnya luar biasa (terutama saya dan orangtua), karena kami mengira kalau “lamaran” akan didiskusikan setelah kedua keluarga kenal satu sama lain (yaaah paling tidak gak langsung saat itu juga siih) 😆

Saat saya tanya pacar tentang ini setelah keluarganya pulang, dia cuma bilang “yaaa begitulah orangtua saya yaang.. Kalau mereka udah yakin kamu dan keluargamu adalah orang baik dan religius, mereka langsung lega dan aman untuk memiliki menantu seperti kamu dan memiliki saudara baru seperti keluargamu. Mereka itu simpel. dan mereka percaya saya..” hahahaha saya pun tertawa dan senang. Jadi, mulai sekarang kami harus mempersiapkan pernikahan kami yang insya Allah  akan diadakan tanggal XX Oktober 2010. Langsung nentuin tanggal donk sekalian saking pengen praktissss… 😀

March 29th 2009

Assalamu’alaikum gorgeous!

March 29th 2009 is one of a very important date to me. Well it’s simply because it’s the 1st day of our relationship. we vowed to be a couple, to be us, to share thoughts, sadness and happiness together. Actually, it takes time for me to realize that I really am in love with him. At first, I kept on thinking that he’s really not my type. He doesn’t have athletic body, he’s even a little chubby. He is 7 years older than me, he has small eyes, which totally give him a chinese look..  😀 But so what? Now I found my self desperately in love with him.. 😉

However, love do conquers all. Now, it’s been a year and 10 days since we decided to be a couple. There’s so many happy, funny, sad, and romantic stories during this year.  Thankfully, it’s only make our relationship stronger day by day..
Thank God, I found him… 🙂

29 Maret 2009 adalah salah satu tanggal penting untuk saya. Kenapa? Karena tanggal ini adalah hari pertama hubungan kami dimulai. Saya dan dia berubah menjadi “kita”, menjadi pasangan, saling bertukar pikiran, kesedeihan dan kegembiraan bersama. Sebenarnya butuh waktu untuk menyadari kalau saya benar-benar jatuh cinta kepadanya. Pertama kali, saya selalu berpikir bahwa dia bukanlah “tipe” yang saya sukai. Dia tidak memiliki body atletis, dia bahkan sedikit chubby. Dia pun lebih tua 7 tahun daripada saya. Dia memiliki mata yang kecil, yang benar-benar membuatnya terlihat seperti orang tionghoa 😀

Tapiiii, terus kenapaaa? Toh sekarang saya menyadari bahwa saya benar-benar telah terpesona olehnya (bahasa romantisnya, jatuh cinta) 😉

Bagaimanapun, cinta memang mengalahkan segalanya. Sekarang sudah setahun 10 hari sejak kami resmi berpacaran. Banyak banget cerita gembira, lucu, sedih dan *ehem* romantis selama setahun ini. Alhamdulillah, semuanya itu akan terus menjadikan hubungan kami kian kuat hari demi hari.

Alhamdulillah saya menemukan dia… 🙂
