“Sometimes the things you want the most don’t happen and what you least expect happens. I don’t know - you meet thousands of people and none of them really touch you. And then you meet one person and your life is changed forever.”—Love & Other Drugs
“Wine is similar to man: we will never know how much we can esteem him or despise him, love him or hate him, nor how many sublime actions or monstrous crimes he is capable of. So let us not be crueller towards wine than we are towards ourselves, & let us treat him as our equal.”—Charles Baudelairefrom On Wine & Hashish
I’ve been retyping & deleting for the past hour. There’s a lot of things I wanna say, but I don’t know how to put it into words because I just wanna be politically correct about everything here.
I’m actually pretty excited. Not contented yet, but yeah, just excited. The funny thing is, there’s not exactly any future plans about anything, I’m just ready to take things as it is. I’m more than prepared to have things not in my way if situations arises.
Remember when I said, if you don’t wanna be disappointed out of prospective situations, you subdue it to your capabilities? Let’s just say, I did subdue it. And you know what? I wasn’t disappointed at all. Because why? The situation accepted my presence… and wanted me to be in it. And something that came out of the situation is just pure innocence. Something that you appreciate & you just don’t question. I won’t say this is something new to me, but what is new is, I learnt that no matter what you do, no matter what you try to avoid getting hurt, if the situations accepted & wanted you to be in it, you just have to live it & live it full. No further questions.
On the other hand, sometimes situations just happen without any warning… with reasons definitely, but no warnings. That of course, is something which you need to pull yourself together to face them. Once you do that, you start to enjoy all the little details, mandatory or not, obvious or not, that have your emotions skipped randomly from one to another. Happiness, awkwardness, anger, sadness, disappointments, upsets.
There will come a day where one needs to make a decision. The deciding factor between the both is pretty apparent. But right now, we’ll just wait & see, which situation arises & brings the best out of someone.
Majorly intoxicated on Friday night & sneaked into Lenny’s place at 2am in the morning only to refrain myself from sleeping though I did manage to catch some winks for 30 minutes before having Dean to drive us to Mel’s place at 3am in the morning.
Car stalled which got us feeling so bad, but thanks to a taxi driver, it was all good!
So what can I say about the wedding?
I love every minute of it. We’re really taken care of & I’ve never had so much fun in a wedding since Ada & Suhaimi’s in Krabi, Thailand. The boys were sweet, the girls were awesome. Major power naps in between to rejuvenate. Gate crashing (at 530am, mind you) was a success though they didn’t really take out their clothes, entirely. Bummer. But it’s all good. Though I have to say, the star of the wedding was not the couple but Jiansen Tan for being an exceptional sport for the rest of his brothers to take all those vinegar shit from the milk bottle & ended up in the clinic for major allergic reaction. His face was all swollen up!
This is what I mean. Poor him.
The evil but gorgeous bridesmaids.
Mel & Henry!
Can’t help it larh. He looks like our resident Taeyang, only chubbier. Nope, I don’t have a crush on him but I think Lenny finds him sweet because he put his blazer on for her cos she was freezing. Very BOYS OVER FLOWER HOR?
The hunky & hot best men. This shot is hilarious.
The bridesmaids during the dinner. I swore to God, most of us were already intoxicated but we managed to look pretty.
Anyhow, here are some entourage photos taken by yours truly. Pardon that the photos don’t do justice to Kiera Roxanne but heck, I was having too much fun to be professional about it.
The minah counterparts. Gorgeous hor?
With the ravishing bride, Mel.
With the star of the night who has the allergy of the milk bottle, Jiansen. He looked better already after the trip to the clinic.
With the xuai-ke groom, Henry.
With Gareth, our neighbourhood Taeyang. The two common things about us, we stay in the same neighbourhood, and we are obsessed with the same man. Only, I want to marry him but he wants to look like him. So fair la hor.. Won’t fight like that.
With thy best man for the night, Hanxiong. This boy together with Gareth & Treddy sent us home that night. He drove very very very slow can?
With part of the best men. Aku suka yang paling kanan pasal dia comel nak mampos. Tapi bila dia da mabuk, dia GILA! He literally gave someone his account number for her to transfer 20cents for ice water. And he’s very annoying. Why?
He ended his sentences with “base down low”. ALL. THE. TIME.
So that’s all folks. Till 30th April to celebrate the couple’s first anniversary at the Conrad Continental! I love this bunch already!
