Happily Ever After?

By all means marry; if you get a good wife, you'll be happy. If you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher. ~ Socrates

So far, so good... If I wrote any more, you'd think otherwise...

Hopefully will be able to update with photos soon.

On another note, what I learnt from this life's chapter is that you need to give until it hurts if you want it to be meaningful.

The wedding went fine. The ceremony was good. Food was good as well. The whole thing was flawless except for the fact there were a few nerves during the ceremony itself, but I think everyone went home happy.

It's only after the ceremony that everything settled down. And it's still not settled as yet. More decisions to be made, more things to worry about, and more things to do.

Life's tough on a few ends right now, but I believe we'll pull through.

Pre-marital Thoughts

I know most of you who isn't married are wondering this:

What goes on in the head of a person who's gonna get hitched in 2 days?

Well, to be frank, it's all about worrying if everything will fall into place.

I've given out invites to those whom I thought should be invited, but some of them aren't around, but then, some people would just pop-up and you will have to fill-in their names into the guest list no matter what.

So, always remember to order more food just in case. I gave out about 150 invites to friends and family, and of course, there'd be some who won't be able to make it. But then, out of no-where, you'd be dealt with a few who'd just suddenly pop-up. So I am just slightly anxious of the actual turn-out on the day. I ordered food for 200pax, and normally speaking, there'd be enough to go around for about 220pax. But then, you'd never know...

The other things include the taking care of relatives. Everyone has their own qualms, comments, wants and needs. It's indeed difficult to take care of both sides of the family, especially that all of them are not locals from KL.

Then there's the expenses bit that needs to be looked after. I can't spend too much on everything or I'll end up busting my budget. Although there should be enough juice to go around, it's not cause for spending. But there's so many things in my life that needs to be renewed, it's not a surprise that I have spent quite a lot on myself, getting new clothes and all that. And all that costs money.

Well, money's been pouring in as well even before the actual day itself. Friends and family who won't be coming have already been givin out ang-pau's as a token to the both of us. But we'd already promised ourselves not to touch that money until all is tallied up and taken count of.

Then there's this expectations issue. When people you invite have certain expectations on you, you have only 2 choices: Listen or Hear. Well, that's the trick apparently, a trick that my friend just taught me the other day over dinner. There are things that you need to listen and react to immediately. And then there are things that you just need to hear. So sometimes to best course of action is no action. Deep and profound, but it'll save lives. Well, rule of thumb is, the lesser the expectations, the lesser the disappointment.

So, T-2 days.

I'm partailly ready, the apartment is ready, the hotel rooms are ready, the people are ready, the money is ready, the venue is ready... The caterers, will have to be careful...

We'll just have to sit back and see what happens.

When it comes, it comes.

Whatever will be, will be.

Crunch Time

Yes, I don't know why, when crunch time comes, it comes with greatest magnitude.

Not only am I going to be busy with my wedding, I am also now called to be busy in a lot of other things at work. Suddenly, I have became a trainer for a course, I have also been called to do more of ministry, and also I have to do some things for some friends.


Why is it that when busy-ness comes, it really gets busy?
