First wedding in the families
Nicolette The 2 Yus : Nicolette and Jean
7 Aug 09, my nephew Timothy Su married his 12 years' girl friend Valerie. When I heard 12 years, I guessed they were church friends. When I first met my husband, he was only 1 year old and botak. So I use to call him botak when he was younger.
Lucky its our school ND celebration so I could take half day leave to attend his wedding in the church. Its a totally refreshing time where I also recall my vow to my husband. I think if any of my kids get married, I am sure to tear!!!!! Love the small little things they arranged e.g. each guest was given a fan, cos the church is classified as heritage so no renovation was allowed. But the most surprising was Timothy wore a pair of white sneakers. I think he look really shiao lor!!!! But some of the old folks were commenting about his shoes.
Lunch was spanish food, trust him to have such arrangement, or may its Valerie's choice. Love the cocktail cos is with dash of alcahol. You know lah, I love to drink of course I will go for it. Waited so long for the tea ceremony and sadly, from the mother side we were the only representative. I am glad we came to show him our support and love. He has only 2 uncles and 1 aunty from the mom side and only one uncle (us) stayed. The othe aunty came and rushed off. Aiya, don't say lah, its always like that lor.
Anyway, dinner was at Regent hotel. Too bad my 2nd son Nicodemus had NUS basketball seletion, so he could not come. This is the first time the family came together after my Mother-in-law passed away 1 year ago. Tim was also choked up when he said he wished his grandmother was here. Took a few photos with the nieces but no chance to take with the groom's bro and sis cos they were all busy helping out. When he gave us the photos, I will sure to share with all of you. My mom was so happy, even though its not her grandson, but she was the one who gave them their Chinese name.
I told my husband, I must start to watch my weight and start to loose some if I don't want to look like his sister on stage. So bad hor, but its a signal to me. Who knows, 5 years down the road I may be standing there with one of my children. Haha, deep down I wish they will stay with me lor!!!!!

Fulfilling his dream
My eldest son, Nickluas finally fulfilled his dream on Sunday. He completed his triathlon on 2 Aug 09. Thank God nothing happened to him cos this morning, I read in the newspaper one CEO of a company died after the swimming portion.
He had always wanted to do this and because of his heart problem, we are not that supporting. But since the doctor said he could do all kinds of exercise just like normal and this year, he decided to sign up. And he DID IT!!!!
So proud of him and his determination. Wish I am like him, I am not so focus and may be thats why my 2nd son Nicodemus is like me.
Proud mother signing off.
