Dear Mother-in-Law,

What? I have been belting out Yueh Liang Dai Biao Wo De Xin every Saturday,11 malam sharp over the last three years at the Club!

Wait till you hear my Pang Yau, Frank Sinatra's version.

Thank you for the invite, we had a good time last Sunday and again best wishes to the newlyweds dan keluarga. More to come?

Rahayu said...

Wan Sharif said...

Missed meeting the Makcik bloggers.. save for Angelina's mother and the new ibu mertua ;)
Anyway I noticed that the "ibu mertua" has lost some weight.. pasal puasa ke.. pasal tak sabar nak sambut menantu :))

Cik Puan Kamil said...

OMG Awwa got married !

My love and congratulations to Awwa n you to, Aunty May. MUAHHH !

ninotaziz said...

Alhamdulillah, Kak Puteri.

Regrets we could not be there. Our faithful maid of 5 years cannot come back due to ill health and therefore, life needs few major adjustments at the moment!

HHalem said...

Tahniah kpd Mak Mentua,

Selamat ijabkabul kpd Nawwar dan Zul.

Selamat & Tahniah kpd Tok dan Tok Wan kerana akan timang cucu ( a head of 9 months).

Oldstock said...

Lovely wedding Kak Kama. Very sorry I couldn't fulfill your invitation although I had very much wanted to go. Kesihatan tak mengizinkan.. my best wishes to the newly-weds.

Kama At-Tarawis said...

Pi - alhamdulillah Pi, sempurna semuanya.

D, Yatt & Cat - the pleasure was ours, glad you could make it.

Lap - insyaallah next round kot,. lap.. dok ada 3 lagi tu..

Derebar - hehehe, i would very much want to hear you singing teresa teng's most famous number..

koolM - tq ma'am..

Yani - your maccaron towers demolished sekelip mata, your cake too lesap in the blink of an eye.. lol..

Kitty - apalak nak malu, kenduri is supposed to be 'makan besar' time..

Ayohwang - tq so much for coming. although you missed most of the makcik bloggers and also our mutual rakan skolah yusof ahmad.. he turned up in baju melayu lengkap bersongkok & bersamping songket youu.. hensem abeh..

Myra - awat tak mai? jemputan untuk saisi keluarga & yr mum kata nak datang..

Ninot - takpa, next time insyaallah

Halem - takderlah Halem, sederhana aja.i think the biggest cost catering, yg lain tak seberapa. insofar as hantaran & belanja were concerned, pun tak seberapa, pengantin specifically mintak macam tu..ala kadar..

Pakcik - tq pakcik. semoga Allah makbulkan doa, amiiin.

Oldstock - ni makan lemang & rendang banyak sangat kot.. hehehe ..next round insyaallah.
