I have a crazy midweek ahead, but that means seeing Bridesmaid Band every single day. In case you don’t know who Bridesmaid Band are, click here. Here’s the thing, Ray, San and Shoran live at the same place, G and I live nearby them and then there’s Bern living in a continent away. Like seriously, she lives far far away that whenever we make crazy impromptu plans she doesn’t get to come along unless some good Samaritan is willing to drive her here. So this Ms. Bern of ours is turning a year older today!
Like wohooo, girl you’re getting out of that school so soon. If there’s one thing you shouldn’t ask is the ages of all the humans in Bridesmaid band, you’ll get a shock. One is going to get married, one is going to head out to work, two are going to get out of their houses into college, one is going to get out of school and one is miserably still stuck in school. But despite everything, I like how we all still keep in touch, bug our parents to drive us here and there, coordinate on what to wear based on the likely traffic in church.
Here are some of our conversations:
Please bear in mind that we have 10 sets of same clothes. Formal, informal, t-shirt, skirts. Don’t worry, we don’t buy the same jeans. We are siblings by choice.
Topic: When to wear the white dress
San: Deyh, long time since we wore the white gown when was the last uh?
G: (says some random day)
Ray: eh yessah, no no no. It was on the other Sunday day, remember how everyone looked so confused after seeing us and remember how I decided to drink and spill milo on my dress. (true thing, I was in the upstairs toilet the whole time washing and ironing her dress. I felt like a washing machine guys. We missed half the worship section in church. From that day I ordered everyone to starve and only drink water till the church service was over.)
Bern: Oh okay then, so we’ll wear it this Saturday night.
Me, San: Eh no no no, Sunday more people, wear on Sunday, then only cun.
Bern: Correct, correct. night time no one cares about wearing a dress all.
Shoran: But my baju still in the washing la. Then must iron all some more. (Please note that the dress takes hella lot of energy and time to iron)
Me: Shoran, use the washing machine la Ya Tuhanku.
San: Deyh Sharon, if you don’t wear this Sunday you wanna wear when else? When Jesus comes is it? Just shaddap and wear la.
Shoran: Haih, okay la. (carries white flag and gives in)
On Sunday Morning
The entire Bridesmaid Band walks in the church carpark one by one with their purple ribbons hanging loosely and wait for G because she knows best about how to tie tight ribbons.
As we brave the morning sun ignoring confusing looks – MISSION ACCOMPLISHED, someone passing by wonders “who in the world gave birth to 6 girls of similar age and size“?
Now, coming back to today’s highlight: #BenicetoBernice.
If there’s one thing we all know, she is like an Ambulance, 24/7 (except for the time she stays in her far far away taman). From running barefoot to doing embarrassing things in public to yelling and screaming, this girl does it all. Therefore if you need help like taking food the second time because you don’t want people to judge how much you eat, or you’re lazy to wear your own slippers because they have straps on, you can always find for Bernice. True story because of yesterday’s incident… I was lazy to wear my orange sandals and I found her slippers lying around so I happily slipped my feet into it and walked around, the next minute I saw her running barefoot. But that only applies to her slippers, try wearing her shinny ballet pumps or stepping on them? You’ll see smoke coming out of her ears and eyes. Trust me, one uncle (accidentally) stepped her shoes last time and continued standing on them, and the rest is history, I wish Instastories existed back then.
Happy Birthday Machiiii! In ten years time I pray you get settled down in Kedah (or which ever state who ever lives in).
