Till Death Do Us Part

William and Cynthia’s gift of two heart-shaped rose quartzes.

Our marriage was solemnised at the stroke of twelve this afternoon. I was choked with emotions when I responded to the marriage registrar’s question with an “I do.” This is the happiest day of my life. After nine years of courtship, Wuan and I finally took the leap of faith to become man and wife in the eyes of the law.

Wuan was my pillar of strength when I sank into depression after Mum’s death. She has been there with me through thick and thin, supporting me all the way in whatever I did. My life would have been so incomplete without her. God took back the woman who loved me most and sent another who loves me equally as much. I am so blessed.

It was a private affair. William and Cynthia were our witnesses and the only persons in the room during the signing of the marriage certificates. All the four of us met around the same time back in the end of 1998. Therefore they were naturally the most suitable persons we could think of to become our witnesses on this joyous occasion.
