i actually don't have any idea on how to start to plan for our engagement.
we did some shopping for the barang hantaran (gifts to be exchanged during the event).
the gift hunting started a month ago.
we've got almost all the gifts ready except for things like cakes/cuppies, chocolates and fruits.
we tried to limit our spending on the gifts so we agreed for only '5 berbalas 7 dulang'.
we should have planned to buy the gifts earlier.
so sad we just missed the year end saving sale - the perfect time to hunt for the gifts.
besides, the gold price is keep rising.
if only we bought the ring before last raya.
the price was only rm88/gram!
and the recent price for gold is rm125/gram. gile kan??
but still, we managed to save a little as we bought the ring at the price of rm115/gram.
the contents of the 7 trays that i initially planned to give him are:
1) engagement ring
2) material for baju melayu
3) sampin songket
but we did some changes on the list because he refused to wear the ring and the capal!
so i substitute the capal to casual shoes (as he doesn't use to wear formal shoes) and the ring to a set of shirt and tie.
while the contents of the 5 trays that he'll give me are:
1) rings - merisik and engagement
2) material for akad nikah attire
3) a pair of shoes
of course i won't show the pictures of the goods here at least until after our engagement.
