I'll be married in.... less than a month from today!
Late last week, my honey and I went to the Kelana Jaya government clinic to take the HIV test, which is compulsory for both of us (Selangor and Melaka has made it mandatory before permission can be obtained). The last time I visited a government hospital for anything was way back in my old MCKK days... though I could have sworn that whatever ailment I professed, they normally dispense the same type of medicine. It seemed to work, so I have no complain there !
Anyway, there must have been like one hundred people waiting to see the various doctors but all in all, it took us merely half an hour from the time we registered to the time we were handed our result. Not bad... not bad at all..
On Tuesday, with all the forms filled up, I went to the Pejabat Agama Islam Shah Alam to obtain the "Kebenaran Berkahwin untuk Lelaki diluar negeri/negara". Quite a mouthful but what it was all about is basically me getting married outside of my "qariah" or place of residence. Since i have to have two "saksi" to attest that, yes, I have never been married before, I decided to ask Rizal and Amran to come along. Two hours later, I have in my hand the "kebenaran" and I am on my way.... in less than a month :)
