Where was I? Oh yes. We were stuck in an awful traffic jam from Bangi to Bahau. Hemy, our driver for that day kept babbling and singing non-sense all the way to Bahau, showing his frustration at not being there on time. His wife and first born child were sitting at the back, laughing silently I guess. I managed to ask his wife if he was like that at home, she only smiled. (thank god he's not my hubby.. lalalala)
The situation worsened when we spotted hawkers by the road.
It felt like we were in a PAINFUL slow motion movie where one by one, hawkers of all kinds displaying the colorful cuisine of Negeri Sembilan fled by us and we couldn't stop to buy some.
|The unique roadside cuisine of Bahau, smoked ducks!|
But the wait was later rewarded.
The brides and grooms were waiting for our arrival before they started their ceremony. It was a double wedding that day. Seeing my friend in her bridal wear gave me a warm feeling in the heart. She was getting married and so was her brother! Double marriage, double happiness!
|A blogger reunion, with additional members - the spouses and babies.|
We met some three years ago as complete strangers who knew each other via blogging. Met up a couple of times in a year to travel, attend weddings or just hang out. Who would've known that online friendships can stay this strong after several years later? Stronger than real life friends, I reckon. I also met up with a few of my high school friends who were in the same school as the bride and me. (Kurt, Ninut, Lailee and hubby, Madziatul and Efie! Nice meeting you guys there!) It was truly a heart warming reunion with the girls from Sekolah Menengah Sains Sabah as it has been 5++ years since we last meet. =)
While the others stayed back waiting for the official photographers (Hemy and Keri) to finish their work, I headed back to Kuala Lumpur by hitching a ride on a Mercedes Benz driven by Amir. Fuuuhhhh.. what a day!
And guess what?
We eventually did stop by a hawker's stall to buy some smoked meat on the way back. Kah kah kah!
Thus ends my story.
