Nine Years and Not Counting

Today marks the ninth year we got hitched. Last year we both forgot our own anniversary (don't snicker ok, you'll get to this 'mild nyanyok' stage too someday..hehehe) until a day later.

This year we didn't forget but had to celebrate (sort of) a day earlier to accommodate an annual golf championship that Pak Abu has been participating in for the past 13 years.

Amin Classic in Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club (KLGCC) is a day-long tournament so I won't be seeing the old man till midnight because the grand dinner (prize-giving et al) usually doesn't end before 'Cinderella hour'.

I'm fine with that. Let him have his cangkul bola enjoyment with his usual kakis on the course. As long as he's happy, I am too. For me, today is furniture-rearranging day (here). Aah, such delicious thoughts, this!

For our anniversary dinner, as usual we trudged to the same old place, that Italian joint called La Risatta in Medan Damansara, and ate the same old stuff; sauteed mushrooms, baked aubergine with cheese, seafood zuppe (their signature dish), topped with tiramisu and coffee.

It's like an annual pilgrimage and we like it the way it is. Viewed the other way, that's how boringly predictable we are. Maybe next year, being our tenth and if we are still around that is (ha ha), we'll try something new, Insyaallah.

Happy 9th Anniversary Puteri,
Kira muda lagi nie!!
My better half sometimes talked about 'mild nyanyok' and at time I do reminded her to be careful..
It might turn into Do'a if 'amin' by the Malaks/Angels...
May Allah bless two of you and your loved one Sokmo sokmo..

Happy Anniversary, Kak Kama and Pak Abu. Semoga bahagia sampai ke cucu?

I love furniture re-arranging days too! Very dificcult to come by as all five kids have to be doing something else - usually away at their Tok Wan's house.

ninotaziz said...

I meant...difficult(LOL)

Congrats & Happy 9th Anniversary to u & Pak Abu and best wishes for many2 more to come.

The best present from u to Pak Abu would be to be his ‘special caddy’ for the day…kekeke.

Happy Anniversary Puan Kama.

Am myself looking forward to my 6th in August (we are not young, we were kind of matured bride and groom. Both were happy to stay single until we each found the reason to be a couple: one another).

Many, many happy years ahead to you and Pak Abu, Insya Allah.

Happy 9th anniversary. May you & Pak Abu go through many more happy years together.

Me & hubby too, hopefully not nyanyuk yet, still forgets about our anniversary. I always like two weeks before beria2 reminding myself about it but when the day comes,totally forget about it until the day after.
