Baddin's Sünnet Düğüne (The story as it is)

It was a big night for him. He was nervous naturally. But everything was going against him…

That friday night when i saw the weather forecast which said that Saturday would rain heavily, i wholeheartedly prayed for it to not rain until at least everybody had come and started eating. Illnesses also made their threats on a lot of people making 2 people unable to come...…Did i mention traffic jam? Many were stuck in the horrifying İstanbul traffic jam, making almost all guests late and the dinner service started when many tummies were grumbling. But *Be* Allah had said and the dinner Alhamdulillah went wonderfully well. My prayers about the rain were even answered…and so.. the Zaim family were there at the Çadır Köşkü’s (Cadır Kiosk – a kiosk from the otoman empire time) *Çadır Yeşil Sera*, in the middle of the forest to celebrate our son’s Sünnet Düğün Dinner…. On the 17th of October 2009.

My beloved wanted his son’s sünnet düğün to be different.. He didn’t want his son to wear that typical sünnet costume that sünnet kids always wear. He wanted his son to be a Padişah- an emporer… But where to find such costume? How?? I was lucky of course that my beloved’s cousin, Yeşim is an expert on fabrics. And so that one day… both of us went to the Kapalı Çarşı at the european side of İstanbul looking for the costume my beloved had in mind. With Yeşim’s help.. yup… we found the perfect costume, tailored especially for baddin… The second time we went to the shop to pick up baddin’s clothes, Hatice chose hers, again maximizing Yeşim’s expertise…

In Turkey, they do have nikah şekeri for weddings… something of the same concept of bunga telur in Malaysia only with sweets or badem şekeri…. I wanted something like that for baddin too.. and soooo… Sünnet Şekeri it was…i had it specially made… Something to remember the dinner by..

The kids’ clothes matter was settled… We didint have time to get a folk costume tailored form y beloved… and so.. he was wearing the typical thing men wear in formal functions… I also didint have the budget for a new dress… and so… wearing the dress i bought form y sister’s wedding in Malaysia 2 summers ago… i was set to go… But then..i didnt have matching shoes!! Borrowed Özlem’s (sis in law) shoes… but then.. when i went to Kadikoy to pick the sünnet şekeri up… i saw this one gorgeous shoes which would match my dress perfectly… only… it was with heels tooooooo high for me!! And so.. for the first time in my life… for my son’s sünnet düğün… i wore a high heels shoes…:0)

Photos were snapped… diner were eaten… my beloved even read the Quran and read some duas so that that night dinner would be blessed…What was important that night was everybody in the zaim family got together… Even though i was truly sad inside coz none of my Malaysian family members were able to come… it was still wonderful to be able to celebrate our son’s Sünnet Düğüne…

If you have the time… i have added several entries of photos in this blog snapped that night… Yes… My Malaysian family and friends… i present you….
