This Is Cinta!

Who would have thought that I will marry this wonderful and beautiful woman? I knew her when she was still a baby for she is my parents' best friend's daughter. But after they moved away to Kampar, we rarely saw each other. Almost never.
Then our mothers decided to play cupid - and we sort of went along with that, without qualms. (But of course, nowadays she would tell everybody that "dia kena kahwin paksa dulu!!)
We were almost strangers when were first married with only three outings between April 1993, when we got engaged and Nov 1993. Dating would not be an appropriate term here because it's not as one was simply a trip to my brother's place in Shah Alam with her niece Nisah while the other was when I picked her up at her office and sent her to Pudu (only once, okay). And the last one was when she accompanied me to a dentist in Kampar.
But like many "bertunang" couple we spoke on the phone almost everyday. However, when I dropped by at her place for lunch (which happened almost everytime I "balik kampung"), we hardly talked to each other. I just came, sengih-sengih, sembang sikit with bakal mak mentua, makan and balik. Prompting the MIL to ponder out loud, "telefon lama-lama banyak pulak cakap ya?" Yes, our pre-marriage relationships was on that level.
Alhamdulillah, after we got "nikah" on 19 Nov 1993, we found out that we are compatible in every imaginable way. And both of us work hard at maintaining that compatiblity.. even till to this very day.
I could not have asked for a better life than this one I'm having now. Because I'm spending it with Yan.
Thank You For 14 Glorious Years Of My Life! And InsyAllah, For Many More Years To Come!
Happy Anniversary. Cinta ini Tiada Akhirnya!

Happy 14th Anniversary!!!
Abg a'a and Kak Yan

gosh it has been 14 years ekkk lama tuh...still remember ur nikah day...it was kindda funny hehehe..people kept on saying how nervous u were on that day and they were grateful that u were not aware that the mike that u used for lafaz nikah was the surau's mike(mike azan tuh) org perempuan yg kat luar surau pun bleh dengar kan hahahah
tak mau buat kenduri ker? or u wanna wait next year? after all it will be a jubli perak thingy hehehhe

Mior Azhar said...

Zai,
Thanks! Macam citer org dolu2 kan? hehe

Shana,
Heartwarming? Ye ke? But thanks anyway. InsyaAllah.
Let us read about you and Ayah pulak, can? (Ker dah ada?)

Anon (9:21)
Thanks di atas doa.

Mior Azhar said...

Yone,
Like many other grooms, of course I was nervous. And they shoved the microphone azan to me when I utter the lafaz, can you imagine that? Even orang ramai kat rumah Kak Yan could hear my lafaz that night! Ambik ko, satu pekan heard I got married that night. Hahaha!
Kenduri? Tak delah, ramai lagi orang yang dah berpuluh tahun kahwin aman bahagia who should buat kenduri like your mom and dad. Depa bila lagi nak buat kenduri?

AAA said...

Mioq and Azian,
BIG CONGRATULATIONS on your awesome partnership...I still remember the day Mioq told me that he finally found his life partner..ha ha ha....And I still have your akad nikah picture - dok bersimpuh (pada jarak yang agak jauh...berlakon habis..ha ha ha..:)dengan penuh kesopanan dan senyum separa ketaq2....ha ha ha..So happy for both of you - you give good name to the marriage institution....:) Bless your family - always.

Pak Idrus said...

Mior, Congratulation on the 14th anniversary. I have been there and celebrated our 40th Anniversary in 2002 and still on the journey together. A great journey full of wonder. It has indeed been a colorful one. Have a nice day and take care.

Once again, TAHNIAH di hari ulangtahun perkahwinan ke 14.

Mior Azhar said...

Wan,
Thanks a million. Coming from you, tersentuh sesangat. I remembered you were in London then. I came by to London a few months later and we had serunding daging and tumis bilis, cooked by Azian, while there.
Bila nak balik KL. Datang rumah ya, and so sorry about the other day... you got to allow us to make amend.

Mior Azhar said...

Salam Pak Idrus,
Thank You Sir, I'm honoured to have you here. and to wish us both. Terima kasih sekali lagi. My only doa is to have a glorious partnerships just like yours. InsyaAllah.

Mior Azhar said...

Salam Tok,
Terima Kasih di atas doa yang dipanjangkan. Love story yang pendek sebelum kahwin tetapi berpanjangan sesudahnya. Alhamduliilah. How's yours? Mai citer sikit... we are all ears, sir!

idham said...

pak mior.....happy anniverssary....to you and Yan!
Memang terserlah cinta yg bersemi itu bercahaya...dan tak mungkin berahir....especially dengan usaha untuk lebih menyubur kan rasa kasih sayang....
love, is afterall a VERB....memerlukan usaha.
Cinta dari zaman kanak2...in my view is very special...sbb cinta bedasarkan pertalian saling menghormati dan mengambil berat itu...lebih kukuh dan tidak serapuh cinta berdasarkan nafsu dan rambang mata orang muda.

semoga terus kekal abadi....hingga ke syurga terus bersama.

cakapaje said...

Salam Bro,

Pak Mior and Mak Azian - cam le aku ni budak lagi :) - Congratulations!

Semoga jodoh Pak Mior dan Mak Azian berkekalan dalam kebahagian dan keimanan, dan dimurahkan rezeki. Dan semoga diketemukan semula di hari kemudian nanti, insyAllah. Amin.

peewit! :) - maaf, kepala tengah jam sikit.

Mior Azhar said...

Pak Payne,
My wish is to live with Yan happily ever after. Thanks for the ucap selamat. But ours was not cinta dari zaman budak2. In fact when I was growing up,Yan doesn't really know me and likewise. Bila jumpa pun, which is seldom, memang buat tak tau lar. I, of course kena maintain macho.

Mior Azhar said...

Shana,
Just read that delightful and romantic entry. I could see a movie coming out of that "The Love Letters". Sure a box office hit punyer. Sadly letter writing is no longer a part of our life.

Mior Azhar said...

Pak zab,
Terima kasih dari kami berdua

Shah Bro:
Thanks, mate. Anda bila lagi?

Mior Azhar said...

Kak Ena,
Thanks. I was a real bad boyfriend/tunang. Nowadays, Yan kept on harping to the kids "nak belanja KFC pun dia tak mau!"
Alamak!

mokk said...

Salam Pak Mior..

Mior Azhar said...

Doc Mokk,
Terima Kasih. Alhamdulillah.

Nisah,

aaa said...

Dad of Four said...

Mior...Thanks for this entry..Otherwise I my 14th anniversary would have eluded me for the first time....HAPPY BELATED ANNIVERSARY TO YOU AND AZIAN!

Hey bro....you got hitched two days before I did!

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

aiseh bg mior, i'm late again. first of all, congrats on your 14th anniversary. 2ndly, those 'meetings' were far more romantic for that little unconventional approach by 90s standard. i really llok up to you and kak yan la bro. remember in your previous entries i said i'd ask tips from you? i'm sure as hell to seek a few if, insyaAllah i've found the way in getting hitched. in the mean time, i'm making sure we're buddies for a long time to come. just like kak yan's and your parents. amin.

Mior Azhar said...

Haq,
Thanks. And that explains why your Khadijah and My Alia are of the same age.
And Happy Anniversary to you too.

Kerp,
Aiseh man, thank you.You hang in there, bro! Sudah sihat ker?

Kak Teh said...

tahniah, tahniah. Maaaf kak teh lambat sikit. Alhamdulillah dan kak teh harap berbahagialah ke anak cucu. Bulan depan kak teh dan Ag akan menyambut 28 tahun bersama - Insyaallah.

Mior Azhar said...

Kak Teh,
Alhamdulillah Kak Teh. 28 years... wohooo lama tu. Gloriously delightful.
And Thank You. Nanti December jadi ker balik?

Kak Teh said...

jadi balik, esok terbang - ag terbang tulat ...insyaallah.
