The Art Of A Good Marriage
Happiness in marriage is not something that just happens.
A good marriage must be created.
In marriage the little things are the big things.
It is never being too old to hold hands.
It is remembering to say "I love you" at least once a day.
It is never going to sleep angry.
It is at no time taking the other for granted;
the courtship should not end with the honeymoon,
it should continue through the years.
It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
It is standing together facing the world.
It is forming a circle of love that gathers the whole family.
It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude of duty or sacrifice,
but in the spirit of joy.
It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is not looking for perfection in each other.
It is cultivating flexibility, patience,understanding and a sense of humour.
It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow old.
It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.
It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal, dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal.
It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner.

So far, I'm always there for my Rubber Trees' big days. This round, I truly dissappointed one of them - Janice. We've talked about this for a few times, I apologized many times , yet I know the 'sad' , 'kecewa' are there in her heart .....well - i just want to say this - it is the same in my heart as well. I couldn't imagine - after waited for this moment, finally - at this date - I'm far far away - not sharing the joy with you. I'm sure this will remain as a 'scare' or missing piece in her wedding memory ....aiii - betul-betul sorry .... let's try next one - may be I'll be with you welcoming the Little Janice :) Enjoy a fruitful marriage life !!!
Last year July 2 - I also FFK Joey's wedding, he didn't seem happy as well ....aiyuh !!

Exciting moment - because for the first time ever - Kampung Girl got to fly Business Class - then then durian betul-betul runtuh - I also had the luxury of First Class ( long long distance flight - hoo hoo ) - truly a pampered trip - and I'm thankful :) Side effort hor - I started to complain Economy class now lah - so so sin kor - so 'pik', so uncomfortable - oh well - no choice - cost is too high , aiiiii - so accept the reality that I still get to travel yeah :) I didn't recall how I spent my July 4th holiday during my Uni time, was thinking hard - but totally blank.
