With only three days into the new year, running low on ideas, I must say I am left with limited titles to give to my postings. Although this posting is titled with such expressions of emotions, I must say this it most apt at describing what happened at the wedding reception last Saturday.
Both Abe and I "reported for duty" early for Amalina & Amrin's wedding reception held at the Seremban Golf and Country Resort. There were not many guests yet; it was just us - the family members. Weather was good that day, not too hot and rather windy. So being in fully lined baju kurung wasn't too bad. The theme was purple, but I didn't really have a purple, purple outfit, and I didn't have the time to go buy material and get it tailored. Hence, something somewhat purple would do lah....
Told him to go get a hair cut, but he fussed. Later I discovered that long hair is so in fashion now!!
Invited guests started to arrive around 12.30pm. Some I didn't know who they were, so tak pe lah, I greeted them, salam-ed with them and guided them to the area they were to be seated. Memang lah tak cut to be in PR line, jalan cepat je, sampai ader old folks yang mengah-mengah trying to catch up.
When relatives from may parents' arrived, there were lots of "Ohhhhh...." Mana tak nyer, some tu I have not met for ages. "Ohhhh......budak ni rghupo eh!!", "Ohhhh...bosar dah anak kau!!!" - two very common lines mentioned to me as I received them.
After the "Ohhhhhs..." came the "Ahhhhhh...." and this I witnessed when our VVIP arrived. Everyone was so excited when the seven series beemer pulled into the driveway accompanied by police outriders. "Ahhhh....they are here, the Tuns have arrived!!!" When introduced to Tun, I held out my hand and he reached out to shake my hands too!!! Ahhhh....dapat shake hands with Tun M and it felt so lembut and very warm too. Ahhh...everyone was so delighted!!!
Then when the bride and groom arrived, it was "Wahhhhh...so pretty, so dashing and wahhh...what a lovely pair!!"
It wasn't till Tun left that the few of us at the main reception area left our post and head for the buffet line. Food.....ahhhhhh, what a relief!! And so, that was how the day went, fascinations aplenty, heaped with interjections of all array.
