Like I mentioned in the previous post, I didn’t have time to mentally prepare myself before walking in the hall. I was from scoffing down a curry puff chill to nervous beyond words. It was so surreal, it felt like time was moving by so fast. Seeing the hall full of familiar faces was surreal as I had only seen it empty the night before. My heart was thumping so hard! I was so nervous, I was literally clinging to my mother for support. Walking in we had all eyes, phones and smiles on us! It was again, so surreal. I couldn’t believe that months of planning. It was finally happening!
Walking down the hall, I took my seat on the dais with my mother. I was told to not look around the hall “Don’t let your eyes wander, keep your eyes down” well, that didn’t happen! I couldn’t help but look around. I was so happy to see my close family and friends in the hall, witnessing this special day with us. During the wait for the Tok Kadi (spokesperson) to start the ceremony, I couldn’t help but notice how confident Don looked. Not a single trace of nervousness. He was smiling and looked so happy.
