So this is how it happened, in a nut shell. His aunt knew my mom, she arranged for us to meet at her place. My mom, his mom, his aunt and M and I sat in a room. They talked, we didn't and it was over. I moved on with my life and he his. A month later my mother get's a call. M wants to take me out for coffee.. so we go out, we talk, well I do most of the talking, he's the silent type. I'm in art school, he's an accountant, an auditor he clarifies.. I don't know the difference. It has something to do with numbers right? He drops me back home and within a few hours we get another phone call. He's interested if I am. We go out one or two more times and we are engaged. Romantic I know.
He worked in Singapore and then moved to New York, so the three years of our engagement consisted of phone calls, e mails and a lot of long distance drama. We were working with an eleven hour time difference which didn't help matters. I would share pictures but I can not seem to find any?!
And then came the wedding.. our weddings usually last over a week. There are many events, lots of outfit changes and bright colors..
It's only been five years yet we have loved so much, grown so much and learnt so much. We have traveled and explored and most importantly created a family.
