11 precious years together...

Alhamdulillah.... today marks the 11th year of my marriage to dearest HB. It feels just like yesterday but no doubt I can no longer fit the baju kurung moden I wore for our akad nikah... hehehe. Neither can he buckle up the waist to his baju Melayu trousers! Oh well... but doesn't that validate our happiness? Thank you Honey Bun for your ridiculous humour, your persistent support, your remarkable patience & most of all for your gift of love.

I was browsing through you tube the other day when I found the song I dedicated to HB alooooong time ago. I was only 17! Hahahahahaha.... (Seriously! Now, I'm worried for my girls. It's very likely that one will inherit their mom's bold certainty).

It was our first song together, followed by a cassette recorded of his acoustic guitar attempt with Unchained Melody. This song in a way answered to the song I dedicated. The Love Songs Language, I would say ;-) Come to think of it... I've known him for almost 17 years. Of course there were hiccups along the way but making it this far on our 11th wedding anniversary, you HB have indeed granted me with want I asked for in our song, The Gift of Love by Bette Midler. Enjoy the song & lyrics.





You ask me what I want
You ask me what I need
It's nothing you can buy,
My heart's not ruled by greed
I don't love a diamond,
Diamonds you see through,
I want you to hold me,
I want you to be true.
Give me the gift of love,
Look me in the eye,
Say I'm the one you're dreamin' of
That'd be the best surprise.
Give me the gift of your sweet love
In the light of the day,
In the dark of night.
Like the colors of the sun
The feelings in your heart
That's all I want from you,
And when the sky is dark,
I'll have you beside me
Who could ask for more
I'll just wear a smile
When you walk in the door
Give me the gift of love,
Look me in the eye
Say I'm the one you're dreamin' of
That'd be the best surprise.
Give me the gift of your sweet love
In the light of the day,
In the dark of night.
Give me the gift of love
Look me in the eye
Say I'm the one you're dreamin of
That'd be the best surprise.
Give me the gift of your sweet love
In the light of the day,
In the dark of night.
Give me the gift of love
Look me in the eye
Say I'm the one you're dreamin of
That'd be the best surprise.
Give me the gift of your sweet love
In the light of the day,
In the dark of night.
Always


Happy Wedding Anniversary! Am looking forward to the years to come. InsyaAllah....
