First Wedding Anniversary

One year ago today, Wuan and I officially sealed our love and commitment to each other with the Registrar of Marriage at Thean Hou Temple in Kuala Lumpur. That was after ten years of courtship – eight of those over long distances as I was in Penang and she in Kuala Lumpur then. I would fly down to Kuala Lumpur occasionally or she would go up north to see me whenever she could get leave from work.

When I began to spend more time in Kuala Lumpur in 2006, William and Cynthia encouraged me to move down to the city for good which I eventually did. When I decided to propose to Wuan, I got William to help me appraise a diamond for the ring. It had to be the best that I could get because that ring was to become the symbol of my everlasting love.

Wuan and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary yesterday as today is a working day. It was a simple dinner with our best friends William and Cynthia. They were our witnesses when we solemnised our marriage last year. What better way to spend this milestone with friends who have been there with us when Wuan and I first started our journey ten years ago.
