Selamat pengantin baru Erra and Emran

Firstly. let's kick off this lengthy entry with Stardust. Short review jer. WATCH IT!

Kalau korang suka filem yang fantasy yang berunsurkan fantasy like The Chronicles of Narnia - The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe (Or Kisah Narnia - Sang Singa, Ahli Sihir dan Gobok - matilah translation!), you'll love this.

Malas nak review lelebih. It's jenis movie yang not very MTV-esque like most movies now, but still it's quite a traditional popcorn movie. Would I pay to watch it? Hell yeah!

Anyway, the premiere aku gi malam semalam was a tie-in event with Jimmy Choo where a specially designed shoe was also previewed. Supposedly ada 200 pasang jer yang available worldwide. There was no price tag on it, but I didn't dare ask takut pengsan.

Here's the shoe, and here's fashionista Sasha Basir taking a pic of it too for her blog. Over tau baju... you could take someone's eye out with that top.


Anyway... moving on malam tadik... akad nikah Erra Fazira dan Engku Emran. Aw...isn't it sweet. Don't marriages just make you wanna cry?

Especially when it's hot, stuffy, sweaty, and you're surrounded by hundreds of loud, jostling, sweating types who drech themselves in cheap deodorant or whatever fragrances they splash on. Dare we mention their underage spawns who wail at every opportunity, or the elder ones who run about getting tangled up in your feet while you rush about?

Yeap. Weddings make me cry. And tadi kat wedding Erra pun aku memang nak nangis for all those reasons katanya.

Still, it was a nice and simple akad nikah, if you ignore the 500 other guests. Seriously... a 'small' affair? Such an abused term these days.

Apapun, sebenarnya letih gila pas semalam rushing about. As usual lack of sleep, pastu bangun jer da kena up and about.

In the office, column, then out again for the wedding, almost getting lost on the way, tapi managed to brave the unknown gituh nak meredah hutan belantara. Nama je kat Taman Tun Dr Ismail lokasi akad nikah tuh. I would prefer to say it's meredah hutan belantara ke Sundai Penchala dah.

Sampai je, da pening da. The number of cars told me how simple the affair was going to be.
Erm...seb baik aku turn in jer ada one spot, terus leh parking masuk.

At about 9pm, they were married when Emran dengan sekali lafaz je menjadi Erra isterinya. Selepas sembahyang sunat, they had the upacara menyarungkan cincin.

Time makan, aku dok tepi isap rokok. Sempat ler merasa satay tuh yang ok ok, tapi cam tension abih sebab too packed, not enough places to seat. In fact we had to play musical chairs nak dok bergilir, well, sapa yang nak makan that is.

So chomped down on ciggys jer la.

Pas dinner, meka ada acara potong kek pulut kuning and a fireworks display. Matilah... tempted nak carut tapi biar aku kunci mulut for once for this joyous occasion. Then it was a press conference.

You know... it's kind of amazing. Time headline event camni kan, tetiba ramai 'wartawan' yang freelance yang muncul. Time Siti kahwin pun camni. Kalau event biasa biasa, aiyo...haram! Kalau sedozen muncul pun da kira meriah. So where do all these people come from????

Memacam...

Nak interview dah la organise kelam kabut sikit, sound system dum dam sana sini, pastuh ngan entah sapa sibuk nak posing diri dalam bilik tuh, dah ler berpuluh yang PC sekali. Geram tak tahan, menjerit aku tiba tiba... DIAM!!!!

Ngan muka tak bersalah, pandang pasangan pengantin, "...as you were saying". Leh? Memang muka Tembok Besar China la kiranya aku ni, but what to do. Dari diamkan diri, haram nak dengar apa pun in those conditions and screw up my story for the paper, lagik rela aku memalukan diri.

It was ok after that...for about 30 seconds. Then start balik sound effect kambing penyibuk mengembek in the background.

HOI!!!!!!!

Senyap balik... for a minute then it started again.

Tak paham orang nak wat press conference tak reti nak adjust kan. Tak reti lagik bangsa tak reti nak diam kalao nak masuk menyibuk sekali.

Arghhh!! Geram!

Still, I don't know why, it was nice to see Erra and Emran together. I think they make a cute couple. They seem to feed off each other's energy and all in all, I really do wish them all the best and hope they can build a beautiful family together.

Wasn't the best of weddings I've been to in terms of organisation, but seeing the two of them in white, was touching enough to make me forget all that had happened. Sentimental kan aku ni... ke mental jerk kot.

Finished, back to the office, finished there, lepak kat KL minum minum before Boo, Moszack and I ke Shah Alam menyibuk kaco Anas yang tengah blind date. Merasalah zaman skang bebudak nak date tengok Otai (merasalah aku tergolek gelak on my own as I type this)

Slept late... pala berat tapi badan sakit. Erm... Esok tengok Black Eyed Peas so need to rest.

Enjoy the piccies. Ta...

Kek pulut kuning gituh


The happy couple


I bet Erra saw fireworks too tonight... much later. Matilah aku kena carut Syed pasnih...


Selamat pengantin baru


Hantaran...tujuh berbalas sembilan


Cartier, Louis Vuitton and Prada...



Dua naskah al-Quran, satu sebahagian hantaran, dan satu lagi sebgai ganti wang hantaran seperti diminta Erra


Overdose tau diamante kat hantaran tuh. Everything dripping with it, sampai kek pun ada butterfly besau!


The most beautiful gift ever from a wedding. Book of prayers - or more accurately a translation of the Holy Book
