Clearing my laptop and i found this draft from almost 5 years back. I guess I never got to say those thank yous after all - procrastinator much. But things all happen for a reason. I guess, this popped out at the right time, the very time I need to look back and reminisce what my parents have done for me.
It’s been more tan a week since the wedding, which was followed
by a whirlwind of activities – Bringing our non-Kuching friends around, eating,
meeting new relatives, eating, spending time with Jen and David, eating and
finally, falling sick. And now that most of it is over, I am finally settling
down to say the Thank Yous that I have been wanting to say since
Mummy, when I hugged you after my dinner reception and said to
you, “thank you for everything”, I meant every.single.word. Well, you replied
with something that sounded like “I’ll jot it down in a 555 notebook and claim
from you”, but the truth is, all you have done for me is so priceless I doubt i
can ever pay you back. Ops =P Thank you for the moral support, thank you for
constantly being there, for never giving up on my bridal shoe hunt, even when I
myself have. Thank you for spending many of your weekends tirelessly, preparing
for my wedding, buying red potties and basins and angpows and curtains and
giving me the perfect cheongsam cloth and sweet talking my tailor into agreeing
to make my dress. Thank you for having the guest list planned out and
refreshments sorted out. Thank you for making me my set of adorable gay chickens
and chicks I now keep in our bridal room. Thank you for being there when I felt
Daddy, you put your arms around my shoulder and told me that I
made you proud. I still cannot really figure out how getting married did that,
but I’m so glad you are. Thank you for stepping in to help with the housework,
the floors are sparkly white because of you. And thank you for being a good
sport on the day, you played the bride’s daddy well.
Husband. It’s hasn’t been an easy one for you either, has it?
And being the more organized one of us two, it must have been very frustrating
for you to watch while I slacked and procrastinated and was inefficient doing
things. Well you’re stuck with me now, like it or not. But thank you for putting
up with my wedding stress tantrums and countless “must it be red?” questions. I
now have the rest of my life to irritate you and I am glad. I hope you are too
Ahhh. My dearest Ji Muis.
And... it abruptly ended here.
