25 years ago.....

...... this day, DH and I exchanged vows to love and honour each other...at the Church of Our Mother of Perpetual Help, Ipoh Garden. Prior to taking the walk down the aisle, the church required us to attend a 6-weeks course of marriage preparation called Evening of the Engaged (EE). [It has since be re-named Catholic Marriage Preparation course] Besides us, there were two other couples plus the married couple who were facilitating the course for the church. It was compulsory for couples seeking to be married in the Catholic church to attend this course as divorce is not permitted in the church's doctrine -"what God has joined, let no man un-join!"

And I designed my wedding gown, though I did not keep the gown after the BIG day! Because the bridal shop had to start from scratch to make the gown, they charged me extra! (and my mum make a big fuss over why I have to use my own design, instead of just renting one of those ready-made ones to save some money. Well, it was my gown and I wanted one that was unique!) It was a combo of 'Scarlet O'hara' and the late Princess Diana's wedding gown! *grin*

DH and I had our ups and downs and we have come a long way to learn to live as a couple! Along the way, we had a daughter who is now 23 years old and doing her final year at the University of Science Malaysia, Penang.

We had a quite dinner on Sunday night to mark this event at the San Francisco Steak House......
here is the dessert we had which was a rich chocolate cake filled with a sweet gooey chocolate sauce and served with Hagen Das ice-cream! Yummy!

Thank you for visiting.
