21st Anniversary

Yesterday, Andrew and I celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary. When I asked him to comment his views on his 21 years of living with me, he mmmed and ahhed and changed the subject.

It all began here. We went for a church camp and got to know each other better there. We actually knew the other existed before this but things began to er, happen, only at the camp. 

Please note in the picture, Andrew was sporting shoulder-length hair.

There's one or two other people some of you out there might recognise.




60135-162753-thumbnail.jpgA few months after the camp, I went off to UK for my dance course. We had a long, long distance relationship, whereby I believe, we helped build post-offices both here in Malaysia and UK. Those were the days before email, text messages, hand phones and all the basic tools of communications that we take for granted now.

Notice in this picture, Andrew now has a shorter hairstyle. My mum threatened that he won't be allowed to see me if he does not cut his hair. She said it made him look like a drug addict.

We were also a lot skinnier then. Now the size of this picture will probably only fit one of us. 

This picture was taken during a family photo session on one of my summer holidays back home. (note to self: must upload those pictures as well.)

We got married on 31st August 1984. Why Hari Merdeka? Well, it's a public holiday and that will be convenient for our guests. We had a garden wedding. The garden of the house we lived in for the 1st few years of our marriage is very huge. It made sense to have the wedding there. Being young and just starting out in our careers, we did not have much money, therefore, we saved on rental and it was different to have a garden wedding (those days, anyway)

Raining Confetti


The added advantage was, we did not have to clean up the confetti after the ceremony. Although we had canopies, we Thank God it did not rain.

As we walk down the aisle, little did we know, it's not a walk into the sunset. It's been a journey or ups and downs. More ups than downs, I may add. David and Alison are definitely uppers.

This picture was taken on 30th, just two days ago, at Eden. We look a lot different now. A lot less21yrs.jpg hair, a lot more inches. Over the years, we've also changed in our character, outlook and perspective of many things. But one thing remains the same; I still love the man I married very much.

Happy 21st Anniversary!

Now all you and Andrew have to do is sit back and await for grandparenthood (otherwise known as 'Datukship') to arrive.

(about that first photo, no matter how much I squinted or how close I mashed my face against the LCD, I couldn't recognize anyone. a larger photo would help, perhaps?)
