1 week after.

So, its been a week since I proposed to my wife to be. It seems as though, I just went down on my knees yesterday. =)

That excitement, that anticipation of her answer and of course, the adrenaline rush stills linger in my heart.

Thank you for everyone well wishes. Be it a warm handshake, sms, whatsapp, facebook, bbm, email, msn, blog comments, phone calls. Thank you.

If my life were to be written into a book, there will definitely be lots of different chapters.

1) 14 July 1984 @ Toa Payoh Hospital
2) Childhood memories
3) Primary School life (In particular P6 life)
4) Work life @ the age of 14
5) Chronicles of Teacher Jerry - The Swimming Coach
6) My Ironman experience
7) Xiaoxin
8) Getting married.

Exciting yeah! *Any book publisher wanna publish my story? Hee....*

Anyway, I was sharing over the weekends. Proposal seems to be an easy thing. Preparation for marriage seem to be such a Tedious affair.

Well, I'm glad that my Xiaoxin is a wedding planner! So I can leave everything to her! She's the wife to be. Whatever she says, goes doesn't it... =)

Marriage is a 2 person affair. But in reality, it's more than just putting both our signature on the papers that gives you the passport to apply for a HDB flat.

When my mum know about my proposal, she has already make plans on who to invite for our wedding dinner. =) And I won't be surprise, most of the relatives she invite I might not even have seen before. =)

But that's tradition ya? Being the eldest son in the family. I must have a Big Bang wedding dinner. =) I truly believe, my generation friends would choose to skip the wedding dinner if given a chance. To some, a wedding dinner is merely a fashion show where the bride and groom march in 2,3 times. =) But well, being a filial son, I must fulfill their wishes and have a big bang wedding dinner.

Dates for our wedding dinner remains unknown until the "MASTER" gives us an auspicious date. Hee... =p

After which, we shall source for the venue and let the words out that we are getting married. =)

Do I have a dream wedding dinner? Nope. Because, being able to marry Xiaoxin is like a dream come true for me. Whatever wishes she wants, I will fulfill it for her. Whatever request both side parents want, I will do my best to accommodate them.

But I still insist on my wedding lion dance. I don't care. Call me chin-na. I want to have 1 pair of wedding lion dancing on my wedding dinner. =p

And yes, I want to marry her in style. So I hope I can save enough to rent either a Porsche, a Ferrari or a Lamborghini during our wedding. That's all I want. To marry her in style.

dun forget to invite me to ur big day. esp when i was part of ur "(3) Primary 6 life".

those days were havoc. fun-filled and homework-copying frenzy. under-void-deck soccer. breaking-light-bulb days. totally loved it. haha.

marriage is a phase of life whereby another much greater responsibility requires us to handle (dunno why i phrase it that way haha.)and i know you will be a great husband and father, as u have been a great friend in our childhood life. haha. void-deck soccer FTW!!!
