27th Wedding Anniversary

We Praise and Thank God for His blessings and graces upon us throughout the years for without it our marriage would not have reach the 'age' of 27 years old and wouldn't be able to celebrate our 27th Wedding Anniversary yesterday and no aramaiti *wink*.

The life we shared together for the past 27 years has not been one smooth voyage but through these storms which we encountered we learned to build a ship that strong enough to face any storm, praise God! But as strong as a ship can be it still crack whenever it hits on a big and hard coral LOL but we learned to repair it before it gets worst or beyond repair...Repaint it before it fade wakaka(bermadah2 oh me kekeke) There were times we 'encounter' pirates for these we learned to sharpen our 'sword' and 'fencing skill' before one of us gets 'kidnapped'( cerita Peter Pan pula)....naaaahhh there are no bruises and injuries laah hehehe....There are no better 'weapon' than 'Love and Forgiveness' *wink* and with God grace He blessed us with three crews whom makes our 27 years journey more wrecking...hilirious...tearful...unending laughter *wink* LOL ...Praise God!

I also thank God for blessing me with a wonderful, loving and caring 'in-laws'. They never make me feel like an 'in-laws' instead I'm one of the family the very moment I stepped in their house 27 years ago .... Thank you dearest all for accepting and loving me just as I'm(I know I'm not an easy person to deal with...infact very 'the complicated'....'hyper ' bah... hehehe) ....muaaaah.

We thank all for being part of our life, the wishes and wonderful gifts....We pray that God will bless us with many good and fun years together ahead...God willing!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary dinner with some of our family members last night at Chinese Cantonese Restaurant at Winner Hotel(thank Annie for introducing me this place). We missed the presence of our children, Audrey and Daryll ...wished they were with us but unfortunately they are working in KL and a moment like this, I wished they never grow up so that they'll never leave home...forever under our selfish, right? LOL

Oh ya...we were not only celebrating our anniversary last night but we celebrated our nephew, Nicholson 15th years old birthday as well...isn't that wonderful? I likkkeeeee....

Till death do us part....

Last Monday, June 1st is really a memorable cum sentimental day for me. I attended a wedding vow renewal mass of my biras(my bro-in-law wife) Lianah's parents at Holy Rosary Church, Limbahau, Papar. It's my first time attending such celebration and the great thing about it was, it's their 60th anniversary. Amazing! To make a marriage work for 60 years is not's a roller coaster ride hahaha. I'm deeply amazed...astound and proud to be a witness to such a beautiful and holy occassion of this couple who look beautiful and dashing in their traditional outfit :)

From what I gathered from the 'bride' *wink*, it was an arrange marriage(well...what is not on those days but still their marriage last) and she still remembered the time she was brought to her 'groom' house which was at 11am on Thursday. Can you imagine that? And it happened 60 years ago! I bet we can't even remember what the day or date or time the first time we have a date with our spouses or fell in love for the matter and we claim ourselves to know more about 'falling in love' or 'love' than our dear old parents LOL.

After the mass the celebration continues for their children(9 of them) gave their parents a blasting anniversary sweet! It was so well organized and the enthusiasm and excitement were all over their faces...the children..grandchildren and great grandchildren...who wouldn't, right? Being able to give such to your parents is a blessing for compared to what they have done for us what we give them can't measure their sacrifices and love.

Grandchild No. 26

Time sure do pass very fast. It feels like it was only few days ago baby Luke birth brings excitement to everyone in the family(a good sign what! the 'Solungkod clan' is multiplying *wink*) and it has not wane out, YET we were celebrating his 'full moon' last Saturday...Ouinah! so fast ohhh...Foolish it may sound but I don't want him to grow up yet....wahhhhh...

It's a tradition in the family...guess in every family especially Kadazan-Dusun and Chinese as well(I think so hehe) that when a baby is a month old it will be celebrated and sort of introducing him/her to the rest of the families. So it's party time for the 'Solungkod clan' again hahaha and we sure do love it for this is the time where normally everyone make an extra effort to be presence and get together and since our mum birthday falls on June 1st we decided celebrate it at the same day.
