My sister Ana (second from left, in pink), obliging the pixman with a pose with her future 'menantu' Sharifah Hafsah soon after the 'sarung cincin' ceremony.
Yours truly flanked by her maternal uncle Tn Hj Ir. Mohd Ali and his wife Hjh Shareefah Shamsiah. Ayahcik Li, who retired as Telecoms DG in the mid 1990s, is the last surviving member of my late mother's four siblings.
Part of the five-tray gift from the groom-to-be. That's a dressed-up 'tepak sirih' in the forefront.
My nephew Anas, the only son of my sister Ana and her husband Annuar, got engaged to his lady love Sharifah Hafsah in Ampang this afternoon.
A ray of sunshine amidst the gloom that had pervaded the family since the demise of their eldest daughter Amirah in October last year (she succumbed to cancer at the age of 25).
If all goes according to plan, Anas and Hafsah will tie the knot in February next year.
