It had been a great marriage for my friend. Personally, despite the lack of contact with her for many years, she was still married to that great guy I met on her wedding day. His name was Mark. That was all I know. A great guy who was polite and sincere in every way. I saw him at my solemnisation and customary wedding after that. Each time, I felt a sense of calm whenever I saw him.
They had been married for more than 7 years. I lost track. I am glad that she married him because she had never complained about him. Not once. It was a great shock to know that he passed away due to cancer. I’m sorry that I couldn’t meet up with them more since he was always so nice to everyone.
I am simply glad that they had spent the time together as a married couple. I am glad that they were happy in their marriage and that they got to be together. Mark, I am glad to have met you. Farewell. I am glad that you are no longer suffering.

It had been rather eventful for the past few months. Starting from March, I had been busy with the renovations for the flat, I must add, tiny flat. Okay, so I’m asking for a lot when it comes to tiny … read more
Somehow, when a certain age creeps in annually, I’m asked, “So, been proposed yet?” I wonder why the huge concern. Perhaps it’s how life is supposed to be since the dinosaurs went extinct. Ladies are rather excited about being proposed … read more
DD’s friend was holding her wedding dinner at Marina Mandarin, the building next to Marina Square. It took us a long walk to the POSB ATM near the cinema and back to the bridge connecting CitiLink and Marina Square. We … read more
[via Flickr] Chinese New Year is coming. So are the frequently asked questions by the relatives who are very concerned about my marital status. Since they don’t see me every time throughout the year (that is in case they get … read more
You can say that again. Couples planning to tie the knots are having trouble trying to book their preferred hotels due to the steep and rising prices of the banquet tables. Even the red packets (ang baos) have to be … read more
