Selamat Pengantin Baru... Ayah

9 Mac 2015 - This date marked a significant change in our family.

Our Dad got married.

It was a small Nikah ceremony on the bride's side. The groom (my Dad)'s side will be held at a later date. 

My Dad met this lady upon his friend's recommendation. They shared a lot in common, and before long, they decided to tie the knot. In fact, Dad told us he was going to get married the previous week. So it had been crazy trying to get it wrapped around our heads, and much crazier for my SIL who volunteered to do the hantaran to get everything done in time. But she had, Alhamdulillah... and the wedding went as smooth as could be.

It's been an emotional roller coaster for me. Of course I am happy for my Dad, but at the same time, it's very sad when I think about my late Mom. But life must go on for the living, and I wish them all the happiness in the world and hereafter.

Welcome to the family, Ma (my now step-mother). Iols can be Cinderella now, got stepmother oneee hehe...

yatie: I am nervous TBH. and yes, hanya yg melalui je tahu the feeling. yg lain2 setakat bole suruh sabar, and tanya apa perasaan je la. i pray that we all have a happily, ever after (ur family and mine). but that's not to say that it is without challenges, kan? but we can hope, and pray.

Mak saya ada anak tiri (abang2 dan kakak saya satu ayah). Dari pengalaman, kena banyak give and take kedua-dua pihak, sikit-sikit tak kena usah disimpan dalam hati. Satu kelebihan Oyis, ianya berlaku bila Oyis dah pun ada family sendiri. Fikir yang baik-baik dan doa selalu ye. Insha Allah.
