First Wedding Anniversary

Andy_Kho_0514
Today marks the first year Wei Jien and I have been married. Time sure flies, because it still feels like yesterday when I said “Yes”. When people ask me how’s married life, I tell them it’s not that much different from dating. But when I really sit down to think about it, it really is quite different leh. I had to log into my company’s HR portal to change the status from single to married. If I don’t, rif won’t get covered by my pretty awesome medical coverage. When we filled up our landing card, I accidentally ticked ‘single’. :shock: rif wasn’t amused. But he soon got over it. I hope. It took me more than half a year to get used to calling him my husband. Initially, I kept forgetting and called him my boyfriend, fiancé, or just by his name. Then I started addressing him by name when I talk about him to others, because the words “my husband” didn’t roll out as smoothly as I wanted it to. I was reading some comments online about how “I’m married”, “No longer in the market”, “Saham jatuh”... you get the drift. I had to get used to not getting hit on anymore, like the time I was in Ku De Ta. Maybe I can start wearing frumpy clothes now. *makes mental note to stock up on pajamas pants*
Asam Laksa
Now that we’re staying together, he’s exposed to all my mood swings, PMS and tantrums. Before marriage, I would self-soothe within the comfort of my room. He now has an innate ability to remain calm when I go thermonuclear. And he knows when a KFC or asam laksa fix is needed. #myhero We have yet to open a joint account, because we’ve been preoccupied. We do however have a joint savings plan, which sort of counts as a joint account but that’s reserved for our kid’s education and old age. His household has a thing for recycling, but my family doesn’t. That was quite difficult to adjust because you know lah ... ‘old habits die hard’. Sharing a room has been quite tough because he’s a neat freak while I’m terribly messy! I like to leave my clothes lying in a pile, until the end of the week before I sort the mess out. He likes keeping things away immediately. When we get back from a vacation, he will unpack on the spot and keep his luggage in the cupboard. My luggage will be left outside until he reminds me for the tenth time or I need something from inside. :lol: [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="470"]IMG_3672 copy Jungle trekking in Cameron Highlands last weekend[/caption] That aside, being married to such a great guy has been bliss. I’m lucky I’m this blessed to have someone that takes good care of me and makes me his priority. I must have done a lot of good in my past life to deserve him. Either that or I’m destined to marry a lying, cheating asshole in my next life. *choi!!*

  3. Think back to the first time you ever heard of wedding. Many an afternoon has been enjoyed by a family, bonding over the discussion of wedding. While it has been acknowledged that it has an important part to play in the development of man, it is important to remember that ‘what goes up must come down.’ Since it was first compared to antidisestablishmentarianism much has been said concerning wedding by those most reliant on technology, who are yet to grow accustomed to its discombobulating nature. Here begins my in depth analysis of the glorious subject of wedding.
