A wedding to remember

When will you ever get a chance to attend a chinese wedding banquet and dress in Black? When you are invited to attend your favourite uncle's wedding.

And that was almost a decade ago when our dearest uncle Andrew got hitched. All his nephews, nieces along with their respective spouses join together and wore Black, Black, Black! Much to the dismay of Uncle's in-laws, thinking that we are most disrespectful bunch. But Uncle knew its not the end of the joke.

We poked fun at him, teased him and rally around him. He was our bestest of best Uncle, most loved and adored because he loved us all, individually. And gave each and everyone of us his undivided love and attention.

It was a day of fun for us..the younger nephews and nieces stood on chairs to yum cha with him and his wife, the rest of us cheer with him, teased him so much that even my mom was embarassed too!

There was so much laughter and giggles that our sides ached. It was a wedding to remember...for him and Auntie and also for everyone at home!

May you have many many more wonderful and blissful years together, uncle Andrew and auntie Ai Hua

I wish for...

Natasha took this photo. At first, she thought it look under exposed as it was broad daylight when the photo was taken. Later, when I look at it again, I think it was perfect. Perfect because she captured that moment of me, lighting each candle.

This was the cake that all of us made or constructed together for Melody's 10th Birthday. All of us are Natasha, Melody and myself. It was fun for the girls and a great time we have spent bonding with each other. All the laughter, joy and excitement we had trying to piece together the cake.

Along the way, Melody got 'naughty' and played with the icing. Natasha had fun taking candid shots of her.

And this is what I wish for, for us..that we shared every moment of time together as a family. Doing things together, having fun without restrictions. And collecting memories along the way.

So to all who comes here to read this..enjoy your family while you can. Each day brings new hope, new dreams and aspirations. Live your day like its your last. Enjoy it like there is no tomorrow. Because in time to come, my little girl Melody will outgo birthday parties at home. And be like her sister, Natasha who celebrates birthdays with her friends !!
