I could not stay on to monitor their work (not that it requires close supervision pun) because nak pergi Marni’s kenduri. Decided to wear blue supaya sedondon with her family’s theme, albeit in a different tone.
Arrived in Kelana Jaya dah dekat pukul 1. Hari cerah and panas… perfect for kenduri but not good for someone yang wearing makeup, hehe… But despite the heat, Marni looked gorgeous and not a bead of sweat in sight. Mantze pun… have to ask them lah, whats’s the secret. Knowing that it would be panas, I’ve decided early on to wear something light.
Momz, Mymot, Skinner and Mantze dan sampai sejak awal lagi to help the family. I datang setakat tetamu je lah, hehe… Joined Ruby and Mantze untuk menikmati hidangan yang sangat lazat… especially the daging masak kicap. Yumm!! Langat Catering… I should remember that name. Manalah tahu, kalau2 nak buat kenduri…
Sambil tengah menghirup cendol, Zura et famille and Nina Che Rus joined us. Followed by Yanie, Syaz and Fazlin. Jun was also there but she came with her family and sat at another table. Ditto with Rose. Peah came a bit later… she got stuck in traffic. We conquered a table betul2 kat entrance gate… perfect view. Mazran’s gang from LaSalle sat at a nearby table. Ham and her family, including Faizal Tahir Jr, were also there. Sambil borak and makan, I sempat consult Yanie, our resident architect, about lighting and bathroom. Haha... itu lah gunanya kawan kan? ;) Selalu the doctors yg kena jawab macam2... this time the range has been expanded.
It was meriah and ceria kenduri. I like weddings at home because it’s more intimate and relaxed. Marni and Mazran were a vision of cool and calmness… always smiling and joking with each other and with people around them. Her family pun relaxed je… Aunty Naimah and Uncle Zainal are so lepak and so were her brother Boy and sisters Zemy and Watie. Bila family tak kecoh, everything (seems to) run smoothly.
Left the kenduri before 3pm because I wanted to visit some shops on Jalan Ipoh. When I got home, dinding dah gone! And habuk everywhere… Things are progressing fast. I can now see what I could previously only visualise in my head. The room isn’t as big as I had expected it to be. But large enough…
Later in the evening, I had to drive the workers back to Ampang because Wak got into an accident. Ina ikut sekali. On the way back we singgah Ampang Point. Hajatnya to hilangkan dahaga but we ended up having a shawarma pulak, hehe… Lepas dah minum ice lemon tea segelas, I was still parched. Singgah cari ice blended pulak.
On the drive home, Ina ajak pergi naik Eye of Malaysia … dah setahun benda tu ada kat tepi Tasik Titiwangsa, tapi sampai sekarang neither of us dah naik. I suppose since we’ve both been on the London Eye, it seemed less of an attraction. Tapi, nak lah merasa naik. Esok… on the last day.
NAMN had called earlier in the day to her house… BBQ dinner! She makes the best lamb and potato salad. But after a long day plus Mama can’t eat pun, I told her that we won’t be coming. Instead, we all satu family sat in front of the TV to watch Sehati Berdansa finale.
