12th March 2011, Saturday. One more day before my big day. It has been raining for almost a week at my district. My parents went out early in the morning to buy the last things on the list. They arrived late in the evening and told me that flood had occur in some area. In the same time, my sister and her boyfriend went out to buy henna but they went home empty handed because all of the store had closed. Luckily for me because my aunt had a henna tree so she blended some of the leaves.
Around 7.00 p.m, my brother told us that the imam who was supposed to come for the 'Malam Berinai Ceremony' (where yellowish oil, extracted from henna leaves is applied on the fingertips) cannot come because he got stuck in the road. So the ceremony had been canceled and after my brother has done the 'Doa Tolak Bala' from his hotel room (he also cannot come home), my aunt put the blended henna leaves on my left fingertips. Left it for an hour before I washed it.
My little sister, Manja @ Bellnita looked at me and asked 'how can you be so calm in this situation?. She was worried with the flood of course. I just laughed. How can I beat God's will? Flood and rain wasn't something that we can control. I can only make a little prayer, hoping that everything will went well for tomorrow.
Luckily, my house is free from the flood but my sister from Tawau, get stuck in Kota Belud and only arrived home at 1.00 a.m. I called hubby and told him about the situation (Kota Kinabalu also free from flood). I wasn't worry about the flood in Kota Marudu as I know, come in the morning, the flood will gone. I was worry about the flood in Kota Belud, because if it still in flood in the morning, my hubby won't be able to come to Kota Marudu then.
