Along... thank you...

So, as we all know, my brother is getting engaged. Everynight, my father will smile wide like mad after each prayer. I know what he was thinking. Not even that, me and my father was always arguing with my mom about the engagement thingy. Every single night!

It was all started when the bride side asked for RM12k of Dowry. My brother was shocked till he caught fever and he can't sleep everynight. My family was pushing to lower the price down but the other side were so hard headed, they sticked with their decision. This one bad thing about behind the wall war, it's much more dangerous than fighting one to one like a real man will do. A lot of misunderstood, caused by miscommunications between both parties. The victims were my brother and his GF, Haira.

My brother was frustrated, he wanted to call the engagement off. But I knew, he does not really mean it.


I was working on the saturday morning. I myself got a lot of issues to be settled, with regards to my work. Suddenly I've got a call from my brother, with a sad and aftercry tone, he told me that Haira had called the engagement off. He himself don't wanna talk about it, ANYMORE! I asked for haira's number but he refused. I told him, that things can still be worked out, but he still refused!

I continue with my work. Lunch time I met with my lorry driver and sort out a few problems that is occuring during my absence. Just one day and everything is turning upside down. (See how important I am.. hehehe). Suddenly I've got an SMS. It's Haira's phone number!

He left a note. "DON'T TALK NONSENSE TO HER"


After the lunch, I went off to Jaya Jusco, to get a present for Nadia's Wedding. Went back home, get myself ready in a red Levi's shirt and bootcut jeans, to the wedding I went off. Such a happy moment to actually meet Herni and her other friends there but now she paid me back!

Herni and her friends were quite close to me back in MMU. They always say hi whenever we meet till, ehem.. till I've a girlfriend. hehe.. I ignored them. So what goes around comes around. She ignores me totally even though I was so nice, saying hi to her, especially Herni, because i still remember, she was the closest to me. Pity me. I regret it. Really.

I've gotta move quick. The timber has arrived in Larkin and I've to check them out. Then went back home and get some rest before going back to Seremban... By bus. I'm not able to drive anymore. I was driving nearly 2000km, just this week!


Was at the Larkin Bus Station, around 6PM. The 'Ulat Tiket' was taking advantage of the holiday season by increasing the ticket's price from RM20 to RM35. Want it or not, I took the 830PM bus to seremban, which cost me only RM19.80. And this bus is surely a speedy gonzales!

I don't think that I should interfere but as I do care and love my dear brother, even though we fight a lot, I really want him to be happy. In this case, I think this relationship, or even the engagement could still be rescued.

So, being as down to earth as possible, I dialled Haira's number and introduced myself. I apologized for whatever things happened and discussed over everything that lead to the calling off of the engagement. Over one hour, I talk almost about everything. The hardship that everyone has to take. The gamble thing that was the risk that everyone also took. Everything. And I advised her as a matured human being, think of the best thing to do rather than being a coward by not willing to take any risk. At all!!

She was first refused to proceed with the engagement. IN the middle of the conversation, she said she'll think about it, but by the end of the conversation, I asked her again, and she say yes!

She wants to get married with my brother!!!

(and it was like me proposing. My brother is supposed to be doing it, not me!)

Then, I was the happiest man ever at the moment, especially at the Larkin Bus Station.

But it turned differently when I called my brother. He refused to talk about it and hanged up! What the f*ck. Oh shit. What am I gonna tell Haira. I don't know what to do. Why my brother is being such a jerk now?

With a heartache, I get up into the bus and try to sleep. I even asked my sister to hide my brother's handphone, worrying that he'll contact Haira and tell her nonsense. Worse, there's someone really annoying in the bus, as he slept so sound till he produced a f*ckin loud snores ever I've heard! Luckily the bus arrived in Seremban, in less than 3 hours.

I called Azreena.. errr..

Then my brother arrived and I was so pissed off as he still refused. I don't know what else to do. I pray to god.


Sunday :: We started the day with breakfast. Then me, mom and dad had talk about what's going on. We found that actually my brother has been a jerk. He called this thing off but he kept being sad and mourning like crazy. We called him over the breakfast table and started to screw him like mad. Sadly, he closed both of his eyes with his palm, guess he was crying HAHAHAHA!

You know what? Haira had been sending him Birthday cards, Raya Cards, Good Luck Cards and guess where did the cards goes? All over the house. I manage to find one in the "longkang" (drainage). He never did appreciate her till a few weeks ago, when he raised his intention to marry to her.

I decided, he should be down to earth, lose his ego and temper, and drive over to Parit Buntar. Win their heart and ask for forgiveness.

Plus, a piece of cloth for Baju Kurung, to be presented to her mother! My father's idea!

He straightaway drove to Parit Buntar, right after we end up the talk. Gave him some money for Tolls and Petrol and there he goes!

Me, my father and my mom went to KL. I was supposed to see Azreena but, she didn't pick up the phone....


4PM :: I called my brother asking him what was he doing? He's already in parit Buntar seeing Haira. He was supposed to see the mother so I asked him what else was he waiting for? He told me that there were 2 families of her relatives came to visit her mother.

I told him. There's a big chance! What are u waiting for? Walk in to the house, and sit there like nothing happened. If you want, present the cloth to her mom in front of 'em all! Then sit there like nothing happened!

I hanged up!


7PM :: He smsed me.

"Along... Thank you!"

The engagement is ON!

* Along is the nickname of the first child in a family. So all my siblings call me ALONG.
