This post is dedicated to my future self and kids.
Kids, do you wanna know how I met your father?
It might not be as long as 8 seasons of a sitcom or something fancy but it's still one of the memories I cherish.
Let's start with the first meeting.
I was in BUDDIES (UTM student organization) at that time. I was assigned new international students every semester. That time, Niko and your father had been assigned to me. The international office had a program to bring the students around the campus, Mydin and Legoland at that time. I joined them and that's the very first photo of us together and Niko (Hi Niko! How are you?)
I greeted him in Korean "anyeonghaseyo" and he said "oh you speak good Korean". Trying to show off I said, "I even know 18, Gae*eki (curse words in Korean)". Until today, your father will bring this up- that I cursed to him on the very first meeting lol. His first impression of me must be that I'm rude. Mine was oh wow he can speak English better than any other Koreans I've met before. And that's that. No more. Nothing like omg he's handsome I'm melting, no.
As we had meals together with other international students, we got more comfortable with each other and we started to hang out in the library. Your dad is a hardworking student. I bet he can stay in the library for 24 hours to study and study and study (we did that a few times, staying in the 24 hour room to do assignments). I thought maybe if I study together I can be a hardworking student like him so we always meet at the library.
|Can you tell?|
Months later, we got really close. He's the closest brother I had so far.
Or so I thought...
He confessed that he loves me.
I be like...
"WHAT THE... You must be kidding? You're Korean"
"So? I'm a human too"
My parents won't believe it. Then he talked to them about marrying me.
"I really like Fadhilah. I'm serious and sincere about her so I wanna marry her"
3 months later, we did a humble akad nikah ceremony attended by close relatives and friends.
So, that's how I met your father.
p/s: Dah nak dekat setahun kahwin tapi belum buat wedding. Almaklum masing-masing tengah belajar lagi. Doakan rezeki kami dapat buat walimatul urus soon! ^^
