|My turn for recorded my signature on the marriage certificate|
I was walking up to the Block A from the KL Branch building (where I usually walked from Jalan Raja Laut bus stop) and he was on his way to the office cafetaria after he parked a car in Block C basement. He offered a friendly smile when he saw me. Instead of returning the same, I merely gave him a glimpse with no reaction on my face. I had the conversation with myself that "Oh my, this guy must be a playboy here. I cannot marry this type as he surely will 1 day take a second wife" and walked off. About 10 minutes later, he entered into my office on 13th Floor and again, he offered another smile. I was blurred for a while, "what was he doing here in my office?".
My colleague, Razuan (now my brother in-law) later informed that the guy that I saw was in charge on the Bank's resort. Our department is a General Services Department (GSD), handling all Central Bank's property and building maintenance. When I walked to the pantry, Zul, an architect in GSD introduced me to him. He threw his 3rd smile for the morning session and I greeted him well this time hiding my embarrassment. Zul is my husband's close friend but we made a promise when we were dating not to reveal our relationship to the office colleague until it was time for us to tie a knot, at least an engagement.

When the wedding invitation card was distributed, they were some comments received from the villagers that the famous girl with such record has finally about to settle down. It was so much happiness and blissful event for my parents the night when my husband took my hand of marriage from my father.

I was the first daughter in law for my husband family. My late mother in law did not have any daughter of her own and that made me her first daughter. She insisted that I was brought over to her house on reception day. My late mother was not happy as it was against our custom. After we explained to her how important it was for my late mother in law, she finally gave in.
In the end, our group from Kelantan who supposed to send me off to the mother in law house was not received properly by them. All attention was on my husband and me, whom already at her place. However what was important for both parents are our happiness. We are, alhamdulillah, with all their prayers stay united as husband and wife, coming to celebrate our 23rd years anniversary, insha Allah on 24th April 2014.
We hope and pray that Allah will bless us with growing old together till Jannah. Amen!
