Valentine's Day #1

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! :)

Today is my first time celebrating Valentine's Day with S as a hubby hahah...feels beautiful...:) He took me out on a date, surprised me with flowers, allowed me to buy a fashion item of my own choice, and treated me sushi...yay! :)

I can never thank Allah enough for bringing S into my life. Until now, S and I still like to discuss about "why Allah brought us together", given our differences in so many things. S is the only person who is able to convince me that 'unconditional love' does exist besides parents'. It's weird.

Since the first time we got together as girlfriend-boyfriend, we sort of already knew that we were meant for each other. Somehow. Someway. It's like, things were falling into place. He was that 'someone' I've been searching for my entire life. There was no particular criteria though, it was just as random as your heart saying to yourself, "I am now complete". We dated for 5 years before we eventually tied the knot - 1,5 years together (in university) and 3,5 years apart (because he was working in KL upon graduation). It didn't bother me to go through a long distance relationship though. I just felt that everything was worth it.

It's interesting that many people were against our relationship back then, mainly because we carry different nationalities. But the beauty of it was, we were okay with that fact, and we didn't want to force anything to anyone even to ourselves. We listened to people's opinions and rejections. We wanted to appreciate the fact that people did care about us so much, and that we should not be blinded by love. We agreed that we should take further our relationship only based on how Allah wants it to be. So we let things flow naturally. And here we are.

So here's to a tough journey that made us strong.

Happy Love Day, my S. 143.

You can't actually celebrate Valentine's Day because it has a lot to do with Christianity because it's about Saint Valentine. You probably don't know, but it's actually a sin. Either than that, I love how you're always grateful to Allah swt.

Diana Rikasari said...

Hi, all! Many thanks for your comments..:)

I guess S & I didn't really celebrate Val's Day like "celebrate" celebrate...just more like "hey it's sort of like "Love" day today so let's do something nice together"..:)

It's just like my non-muslim friends who actually join "fasting" during Ramadhan month out of respect and appreciation towards the simple meaning behind it...:)

Val's Day nowadays have somehow become more of a tradition rather than a religious celebration, where people no longer look at the "heavy content" but just see as a simple day to celebrate love & friendship. I do understand that "love" should be celebrated and shared everyday, but I do find it nice have just 1 day where we make our "everyday is love day" a bit more special. But yes, I might be very very wrong in this so I thank you all for the kind inputs...:)

Hope this clarifies! :)

very sweet Mba Diana, i'm married too, but i still haven't found thing like u said "S is the only person who is able to convince me that 'unconditional love' does exist besides parents'". i hope i will find it soon :)
Mba Diana, can i ask u something private? just ignore this if u can't. how S make u sure that he is the one? that he has 'unconditional love' for u? or is it too late to ask something like that after i got married to someone?
thanks for sharing :)
