I wanna wear tudung selayah keringkam for my nikah day! Super blur what the heaven selayah keringkam is all about? Well, you can read about it here and here…
I saw Kak Hana’s pictures during her nikah day and she looks super stunning wearing her red selayah… Kak Hana was my senior back in KTDTHB, Miri. ;)
There was a time, when I was in Miri, my grandma showed me her selayah. Masa tu tak se-excited sekarang pun. But bila tengok gambar nikah Kak Hana, I was like ‘ish kena pakai jugak nie…’! Sebab nowadays benda sebegini dah dilupakan, sedangkan itu lambang asal usul kita – lambang asal usul saya! ;)
I am a proud Sarawakian! Ahem……
This morning, I called Nek Wan and told her that I want to wear her selayah for my nikah day in the future and she was so excited when I told her that. Siap cerita asal usul selayah to me, and betapa susah and mahalnya nak dapatkan selayah nowadays… It can cost you thousands (RM1K to RM9K)! I thank God, my grandma masih ada selayah. Yippie.
And I also asked her about songket Sarawak sebab tertengok these pictures…
It is traditional Malay Sarawak Raja Oleng costume. Saya pernah tengok my mother pakai baju ala-ala begini masa berlulut masa her wedding day… Berlulut tu upacara tukar-tukar baju pengantin. But sekarang tak ramai orang nak buat… And I don’t think I want to have berlulut session for my wedding. Macam rumit je. :P Sorry nenek.
Okay, back to the songket Sarawak… Tetiba my grandma cakap dia ada simpan songket Sarawak warna merah untuk saya kahwin nanti. Oh my oh my. Super terharu. Sobs! Terima kasih nenek… Saya baru tahu. Rasa macam biar betul nenek… ;’)
Oh… below, lagi gambar selayah… :D Maaflah sebab super teruja tentang selayah… I just find it super interesting, exclusive, classy and fabulous-sassy!
I made a special album in FB and I uploaded all these pictures just for my future reference nanti. Chewah. Mengadakan? But I’ve privatized it lah and I only allowed my mother to have access to it. :D
My mom went emo bila dia tengok gambar last tu. She told me, that will me my grandma kissing me on my forehead and she’ll be the one who’s crying kat belakang tu… And she also told me that, during my big day nanti my father lah yang super excited about it – with his baju melayu, samping pelikat, and his songkok tinggi. Just like orang-orang lama.
Super kelakar… ;)
I never thought we’d be okay discussing about this. I mean, me, my mom and my grandma discussing about the future… Well, my future to be exact. I could recall way back, long time ago, I used to ask them about marriage and they don’t really okay about the topic and I hated both of them during those times because I was so frustrated with their response, especially my mother. I just hate it when she doesn’t really bother to ‘educate’ me about it. Dan saya pernah meluahkan kebengangan saya disini… Bila saya baca balik apa yang saya tulis, saya rasa “oh Nono, kamu sangat childish”.
Jangan salah faham with this entry. I am not getting married in anytime soon pun. Saja nak bercerita. It is such a long way to go… But of course, I want to get married before I hit 30 lah! Insha Allah… Kalau boleh, biarlah saya capai my so called super greatest wish before settling down.
One of my greatest wish is to perform umrah. To stand before the Kaabah and supplicate Allah’s blessing before entering a real adulthood. To make du’a so that I’ll find real contentment, happiness and barakah in everything I do, in anything that I commit to and to the man for whom I will devote my life in the future. I want to make du’a for my beloved grandfathers - Nek Man and Nek Ulis too…
And I want go to Makkah with Nek Wan, Mak, Bapak and Nabil. ;D
Insha Allah. Tapi apa-apa pun, kita merancang Allah yang menentukan. Doakan yang baik-baik saja! ;)
