We left KL very early on Saturday so we could reach Seremban in time. Unfortunately, due to an accident involving 4 cars just after the Seremban rest area, we had to endure a longer than expected traffic jam on the road. A good 45 minutes from there to Seremban! Sheesh!
But the kids while the time away by watching 80's music video which MrNordin had just bought from JB. I didn't bring Nizzar because he was not well. Infact, MrNordin and I were not feeling that great either that Saturday morning ~ all 3 of us had caught the flu bug. But kenalah gagah kan badan... takkan tak pegi pulak?
The engagement ceremony was held at Spanish Villa, a condo dwelling somewhere in Seremban. The girl's parents rented the common hall there to accommodate the big crowd. From their side, there were about 100 people, and from our side, there were about 50, or more. I didn't count, but there were 12 cars in the rombongan meminang. So there were many.
My husband was the spoke person from our side. This is the second time he became a juru cakap. The first time was during a cousin's akad nikah in Mukah, Sarawak. Just goes to show he's becoming more "mature"...
He did well, was quite nervous at first but after while, he was ok. The jurucakap from the girl's side was her Pak Lang, an old timer and a very seasoned speaker. He started off with a pantun, so my husband dah mengelabah!
Nasib baik we all dah prepare some pantuns the night before, but they were meant for the penutup majlis. Alah... pantun "Dua tiga kucing berlari.." and "Kalau ada jarum yang patah..." je, mana tahu pantun-pantun yang lain. So hentam je lah! Hee.. hee.. berpeluh jugak husband I!
But it all went well in the end. Akad nikah will be held on 3rd October, after raya.
My BIL is now a happy man. Soon he will become a married man. Should we congratulate him or offer him condolences?
Hee.. hee.. just kidding! Enjoy the photos!
