Today is Friday the 15th August 2008. Another 2 days will be a BIG DAY for my 2nd brother, Fairuz (Mohd Adzim Fairuz). He will become a husband to his fiancee, Noor Azlin. He's getting married on 17th August 2008.
Being the eldest in the siblings and the closest to Fairuz when he was small, of course not being able to attend his big day is the least in the list that I would choose. But, his happiness is much more important. The earlier plan is to have it in October, after the Eid. I'll be in M@laysia then. But, the bride side wouldn't really agree on it because the much much earlier planning (during their engagement ceremony) is, the wedding should materialize less than a year after their engagement.
It's already a year and a half. I don't blame the bride side for asking to have the wedding earlier than October. Since my brother's fiancee can only take leave during August (she's a teacher), they decided to have it on that date.
Me? I'm pretty sad for not being able to witness my brother pronouncing his akad in front of the kadhi. Very sad indeed... Yet, I have to redha because that's the decision made by Allah. We can plan but He will decide.
Yesterday, I was happy attending a birthday party of Aisya, Kak S daughter. We had a good time chatting with friends from Jubail and Khobar. I thought of updating yesterday's event but I am too sad thinking about my brother's wedding. Perhaps my friends, As and Liza will update on that soon. Hopefully.. because I don't think I'm in the mood of updating any picture at the moment.
By the way, this is not the reason why I was so upset last week. I guess, I just have too many sad stories huh! Let it be because this is one of the ways I'm expressing my feelings - by writing and no one can question me directly :).
