WIWT 2010 Summary

Preparation for the wedding has started since we only decided on the wedding date around December last year. So many things to do but the first thing we did was to find a designer for my wedding dresses :)

I've started being more busy on the wedding preparations, more time & blogposts spent on that.

MARCH - No WIWT shots, final month before I become a wife. Naz left for a business trip in Japan for 5 weeks and came back a week before we got married, I had to do everything by myself. I thought I could have died of fatigue.

I know I've started feeling unlike myself, I get tired so easily, I didn't enjoy our mini honeymoon coz I was tired tired tired all the time.

Only 4 posts this month of May, first I said I was sick and wrote "Take care while you still have your health". Don't know why I said that, sounded so serious. Second post, I was still sick (constant fever, diarrhea, pale, fatigue, shortness of breath) but I posted photos of our solemnization day I got from our wedding photographer. Third post - I finally mustered some energy to go out & mingle, went to Leftblock x Nike event. Fourth - the shocking newsflash.

Uniform for months - with the occasional sweater, beanie and proper matching socks.
Zero posts around these month, was in and out of the hospital most of the time. 3-4 weeks in hospital, and then a few days resting period at home then back to the hospital. I tweeted most of the time. I'm really grateful for those who came to visit, even people whom I've never met (blog readers) came by, such kind hearts. My mother instantly moved in the ward with me, taking care of me like ol' times. Husband came by every single day after work - all the way from Bangi to Ampang. He never slept in our bedroom at home when I wasn't there, he slept on the sofa instead. He told me to keep on writing but I just couldn't. He wrote instead.

Feels so good to be back at home after so long, I got a full month leave from the hospital during Ramadhan and celebrated Eid at my hometown. Finally wrote a post about my cancer, surprised that there are still people reading my blog and giving me support eventhough they only know me through words & pictures.

Was determined to make full use of my stay-at-home leave to meet my friends and go out and just be happy. Attempted to wear the hijab ala Yuna but failed. Was nervous meeting Jezmine & Adriani, in my first maxi skirt and two toned hijab. I'm liking more & more the versatility of styling hijab and loving all the supports from family and friends.

Can't tell you how much I love this month of the year, too many good things happened. Grown closer to really good people, met more amazing people, made new friends. Loved a lot and laughed a lot. All in all, happiest December so far ♥

As a conclusion, 2010 has it's positive streaks - hardships & happy moments preparing for our wedding, designed my own wedding dresses + solemnization outfit, got married to the love of my life after 7 years of courtship, moved in together to an apartment, made new friends, finally met Yuna in person and the infamous Hana Tajima, started wearing hijab permanently (best decision ever).

And the negative side - got diagnosed of leukemia, but hey I won't let it define my life! :)
