The Wedding

If you’ve read my previous blog about my cousin’s engagement session (Ayu-Yuyus engagement session), and now here the wedding. The nuptial itself was held on November 4, 2012 but before that day there were few ceremonies held. I and my husband didn’t miss the chance of documenting the processions. The whole ceremonies is kind of traditional Javanese wedding ceremonies. She looks gorgeous that day!

Siraman, the ceremony of bathing the bride prior to the wedding and separately doing between the bride and the groom but starting at the same time. This ceremony is symbolizing the bride and the groom clean physically and mentally prior to the wedding, and also asking for permission and blessing from both parents.

And some snaps from the nuptial

Too bad I didn’t take many pictures for the wedding party. Soon after the party, we left earlier to catch the flight at night arriving Seoul. From all of my love as her cousin, I wish her a very happy marriage life… happy always, and Tanya is waiting for another cousin 😀



One of my laboratory friend came approached me..

she: 리카 (read: Rika), 리카, 리카…..I’m so HappY…

me: why????

she: because my *GC column already arrived…

*GC (Gas Chromatography) is one of the analysis instrument that we use in laboratory, e.g to check the presence of alcohol in a beverage. Column is one important part of the GC machine.

me: wooo thats cool, so u start to work again..

she: yes 리카… I’m happy..

me: (~~wtfffffff!!!!) smilling… 🙂


I was thinking that, how come she can be so happy because if that thing…?!!! First when she said happy in my thought was that somethin related with a man, or she is falling in love, or she got a prize,… but she is not, she is happy coz of GC column. okey I understand, I could be happy also if i were her, but not that “happY”, maybe I would just feel “okay, I have the equipment now, i can start to work again, oh no..start to work again..damn!.. :P”

So, Happy can be anything for everyone, different each other… something can be big for someone, but not for another. We have our own way to get happy. What ever it is we just wanna be happy right!!!!!

~~for me now, I will be very happy if i can publish a paper… maybe for you, it is not something that can make u happy. Or at least i can have the new lens for my camera…I would be soooooooooooo HappY! ;P

How bout yours?

-Be HappY-
