👩🏻：what are you doing?
👦🏻: Nothing! Don’t come outside Mummy!! I am just tidying! (Opening drawers)
And this morning…
The kid came bouncing into the room as I was sitting in front of the fan cooling myself, yelling “Happy reversely wedding, Mummy!!!”.
He had written this all by himself, copying the words from a Christmas card he made for us in school.
His writing isn’t the best but I would give him A for effort 🥰!
And mummy’s favourite colourful flower!
And yes, today 11.1.2019 marks our 8th year wedding anniversary! Wow!! We have survived 8 years together!
It was 31st December 2010, New Year’s Eve and daitaoha, R and I were pigging out, as usual at a buffet.
Halfway throughout the meal, HC excused himself to go to the Gents however time passed and he still wasn’t back. I started questioning where he was and I could see R and daitaoha starting to get anxious too.
I believe daitaoha or R got up to speak to the DJ playing music that night and he nodded and suddenly “you are so beautiful to me…” (haha later on we laughed at the choice of song started playing but the DJ didn’t have any romantic songs on hand) and I saw HC walking towards me holding a bouquet of flowers.
He then got down on one knee and said the words that a lady would only hear probably once in their lifetime. There was silence for a while and when I think I nodded my head or said yes, I remember the table next to us cheering.
Later that night when I grabbed more food, someone from the next table congratulated me and asked to see the ring 😊.
No wonder daitaoha stopped me that evening to put on my ring (yes, I chose my own ring) which we had just collected a few days before. HC said he took such a long time coming back coz he was trying to protect the flowers! It was one very windy evening and he was worried that the wind will blow the flowers apart! Haha 😂!
I seriously wasn’t expecting a proposal coz we had already booked our ROM date and bought our rings together so I was pleasantly surprised.
I was also surprised that I still teared when he asked even though I already knew we were getting married soon.
It was also very touching that daitaoha and R were there to witness my proposal and we were there for theirs.
Our “lomantik” dinner tonight with the family 😂. A very happy man with his bowl of chirashi. He gave me all the ikura and the raw prawn which I love.
This kid had 2 tamago sushis, 4 seared salmon sushis and half a bowl of my cold soba.
He was really chirpy tonight. Really in high spirits.
I had the sushi set which came with miso soup which the kid loved and either cold or hot soba. The yellow tail was so good! Must go back for more!!
So paiseh but kookycookie paid for our meals coz she said that it is our anniversary. So nice lah…
After dinner, we then met up with daitaoha and family and all of us went for late night city shopping! Bought more tees for the kid at H&M and a jacket at Uniqlo coz he was cold!
It was really a nice night out spent with my family. Can’t ask for more :).
