Wedding jitters...

(HALT! Bukan aku yg kawin ok, orang lain je.)

Mom dragged me to my first cousin's wedding today. I hate to spoil her mood by arguing and giving 1001 excuses that I didnt even have, so there I went, bracing for assault.

If I set my mind to it, I could actually do this singlehandedly.

Pick a dress. Do my own makeup. Fix my own hair. Drive. Sit alone. Act cool. Dispense my prettiest smiles. Eat like a girl. Make polite small talks with strangers sharing my table. Avoid eye contacts. And leave in one piece. All the while looking like I don't care. I could even get brownie marks for this. Wentworth Miller would be so proud of me.

Dang those aunties just won't quit! When I said Not Yet, I meant Not Now. I will, eventually.

I even set a checklist... see?


I love thunderstorms. If he didn't, that's just too bad, cause I have like, 101 imaginative things-to-do in/during a thunderstorm. If you know what I mean.

  4. I told a friend who used a check list for his wife-to-be.. as years go by your check list will be more refined.. more difficult to be fulfilled as you think better of yourself.. but the other side will have their own check lists.. to them your "value" may be lower as you aged.. they might even think that you are a problematic man - women find difficult to hold or even befriended.. ;)))

  10. Hi Coffee girl, I love your lively sense of humour.....And yes, relatives, busybody aunties tend to ask probing questions, "bila..."?
    I had my fair share too old days of "when..."?
    Or, a direct approach, requires lots of diplomacy here..."Lee, you don't like my daughter..."? Ha ha.

    Anyway, you just live your life as how you want it to be...have fun....don't get handcuffed too early, *wink*.
    Lee.
