tribute to Mrs Apek ;)

Once she was in my group during our form 1 orientation day in year 2000. We had to introduce ourselves and then repeat other people's name. As I am notorious for not remembering other people's name, I obviously had a difficulty to repeat each and everyone's name. When it was my turn to repeat her name, she actually had to give a hint to me that we have similar name. EVEN WITH THE HINT, I couldn't guess right. I said: Atiqah?

Obviously no!

Her name is none other than Syafiqah.

Nurul Syafiqah binti Samsul Bahrin.

The girl has been there for me through thick and thin. To be fair, we only got close since year 2004. Our final year at Science Selangor Secondary School, when we were dormmates. And luckily we were given more time to spend together as we both got the same scholarship to study in Japan. I love this sincere, pure, bubbly drama queen although she's a bit cranky at times. We share so many secrets, dreams and moments together that it's just nearly unbelievable she has taken one step ahead in her life.

Today, the 17th of March 2012 is the big day of this girl. She got married to her life partner, Apek (not his real name) in Malaysia and I could only witness it through skype (broadcasted by Mimi my other soulmate, thanks darling! )

Here, I just want to say, congratulation PEKAAAAAH!!!. I am sincerely happy for you and Apek. Have great years ahead in each other's company. As of now, your BFFs can only give advice from afar, and you have to make your decisions with the consultation of your dear hubby. Be patient as there will always be ups and downs in married life. I'll pray for your eternal happiness and remember, be a good wife okay?

To Apek, DON'T let Pekah bully you. Heheh...

Selamat pengantin baru!! Sayang korang! :))

The one and only,
Afiqah yang comel.

    1. Seriously , i don't speak Japanese. The last time I tried, i picked beef onogiri at the market instead of fish. Im pretty sure the Kanji looked like "M" terbalik as my supervisor told me, and the packaging was light blue. Threw up few minutes later. Ended up eating bread for the next 2 weeks in Fukuoka.
      -_-

  16. he's my senior. PhD student in Japan doesn't need to learn japanese like undergrad student IIANM. Is it right ? just realized you studied in Japan before .. LOL ..

    do you still bow down when apologizing/thanking people?
    that thing took me 2 weeks to stop when im back ..

    ReplyDelete
  17. i dont know about IIANM. but i was under RPKJ program to japan. wow! u took PhD in Japan? must be tough! actually up till today i still bow when i greet older people. not exactly bow, more like nodding.. haha! it has already become a habit ;p
