As you should have gathered by now that I am not a big fan of such events considering how differently I did mine and also how small scale it was. I really hate it when people attend because they "had to" or they attend and give off negative vibe.

Wedding No.1 - Jacky + Aggie
Jacky was a very special friend. A friend that I would love to keep close to my heart for many more years to come. I met him when I was a teenager from school. We spent a lot of time doing nothing and you know what they say about relationships that can just enjoy each other's company and do nothing. He was the guy who started my drinking "career". He would always put us before him back in the days. He would want to expose us to the world out there. Although we haven't been spending that much time together these days or have much similar goals or interest in life, he is one of those guys that I would always say, if not for him, there wouldn't be the Smith you see today.
He spent most of his post puberty life trying to find love. If there's a song I will pair him to his love life before his wife would probably be "find love in a hopeless place." I am very happy he found his wife. Although we might not be very close friends but I would say that his wife made him a much better person. And that is how relationship should be, making each other a better person. Not about changing each other, about influencing each other positively, about each other willingly adapting to each others life.
Wedding No.2 - Melpig + Huat
We met few years ago on Twitter and our friendship escalated on one of those night where I didn't have much to do and we started talking on Facebook and I got to know her better. Because of her, I was part of one of the world's largest service organization - Lions Club. I can't say enough how much I've seen and learn before of this opportunity given. She treated me like a lil brother (not so lil in terms of size), and her family treated me like one of them. She is never shy about how she feel about things or about me. We have been through lots of argument and happy moments together as well and I know she is the one person that will always help me as long as she can, even when she couldn't she will make sure she get me some help.
I am no love guru but the type of love that Mel and Huat has is very different. There's no fluff, no romantic "I love you" bs but I can tell that they have found a soulmate in each other. Love is not always rainbow, unicorns and pot of gold and this two knows it. They have each other in good times and bad and that's when you know they will always be there for each other. Mel is a fierce woman (gonna hide myself after this line) and Huat is the fiercer man that can keep her in place but yet at the same time you know huat shows his love and care in a very different manner. In a very traditional manly manner that is rare in man (or rather boys) these days.
Hidden behind her screams and table slamming skill, Mel is yet another 小女人 with her new hubby - Mr. Turbo Huat.
Wedding 3 - Sng Tan Kuai Le
|And I did not even remember taking this picture that night|
Do you remember when was the last time you got so drunk that you have no clue how you went home? I remember mine. It was just a few weeks ago during this crazy party. We had so much to drink and I even fell on the ground while going home and injured my chin, my face and my hand. That was how drunk I was! Eun Tan + YH Sng and together they are Sng Tan Kuai Le.
It was seriously one of the best wedding ever. No march in, no silly table photo takings and just many good looking people having a good time over food and booze. I was very proud to be the emcee for that night because this woman is one of those that I care a lot for. I always believe she deserves a good man and I am very glad she found a good man like YH. YH is quirky and funny in his own way. They call each other "bro" and they ain't even facebook friends. What a cute couple right? I really respect his "come what may attitude" which was demonstrated on his wedding day when the wedding car broke down. There was no argument, angst nor panic. He just took it as it is and he sees it as a positive lesson from the universe teaching them to do and solve things together as a couple. #SweetMax
I met eunice some moons ago at an event and I did not like her at all. I find that she "act one atas" and very dao but universe has his own way of working things out. We became colleagues and when you have common enemies you guys become tight very easily and when you are in an agency, life is like a battle field (everyday). We fought (together and each other), we had disagreement, I had to deal with her PMS emotions, she had to deal with my bad attitude and I almost died once in her car after a meeting where she was very affected (Yes, we been through life and death situation. ) but we also shared many late nights together(working lah), laughing, gossiping and also partying. (few occasions only actually) We were so close we were known as the office spouse but all good things come to an end when she
And we also have this very famous non-singing singing duet.
Marriage and Weddings
For someone who ain't into weddings or marriage, I sure did enjoyed myself a lot this October sending my friends off singlehood and into married life. "Welcome to Hell" I say. :x
Getting married is just the 1st step and I've seen 3 very different couple getting married within 1 month and I will say every couple has their own set of problems and happiness and it is not up to anyone of us to dictate what is right or wrong or compare who is a better couple. Every couple has their own way of making things work. Some choose to work as a team together while others work with one being the driver and the other taking a step back.
We all seek different things in life, to my friends who are seeking a happy ending in terms of marriage I hope you find your one and to those who prefers to stay single, may you have all the single fun on behalf of all the married.
Anyway, signing off with one of my favorite quote from a chick flick about relationship (duh).
