Bismillaa Hirrahmaa Nirrahiim
I publish this sequel to my last post due to special request heheh...
Still wondering why Indomie? Well, Brunei is a small country, very small. As fate has it, my best friend Aji Emran's elder brother is married to my wife's elder sister.
During Hari Raya in her first year 1996/97, R (my wife) went back to Brunei for Eid/Hari Raya. On her way back to UK, Aji's mom asked R to bring a box of Indomie for Aji (Indomie was so expensive in UK then).
Anyway, as fate has it again, Aji was on a rare visit to my place one weekend (our cities are 6 hours train ride apart, hence the rareness). It was during this visit that he got a call from R to say that she's got his Indomie.
Remember in my last post that R and I were good friends (oh, we still are).... so I thought why don't I tag along with Aji to pick up the Indomie, at least I get to see my good friend R whom I haven't met for a while, and furthermore, it was Hari Raya so more excuse for me to visit her.
I can still remember the tingling I felt in my chest, probably my heart was beating so hard when I first saw her again.
From then on, I took many excuses to visit her (even before I have the guts to express my true feelings for her). The Indomie episode was in February '97, and only expressed my true love to her in June '97.
Anyway, as it was my final year and her 1st year, so we spent the next year on a long distance relationship.
Alhamdulillah, our patience and perseverance paid off, and in a couple of years after that I had to conjure all the strengths in the world again, to ask three ladies for me to tie the knot with R... my late Mama (grandmum), my late Babu (mum) and of course my dear R.
We're engaged on the 27.2.2000 and solemnised our marriage on 25.8.2000. Alhamdulillah.
