One of the comment in my previous post inspired this short entry. Thanks Ely! I owe you one! Ok, straight to the point, shall we? Among my siblings, three of us are among those people who took a long time courting before tying the knot.
- But first, it was MY PARENTS! They met in Form 3(either one of them F.3) and got married when my mom was 24 y.o.
- Then, it was my eldest brother who met his better half in 1997 (if I'm not mistaken) and tied the knot in either 2005 or 2006. Tak ingat! Hehe. That's like 8-9 years of courtship before they were declared man and wife.
- After that, followed by moi! The big guy and I met early 2001 and tied the knot in 2007. That's more or less 7 years of courtship.
- Finally, my youngest brother who started dating his current gf since Form 3 and now he is in UTP doing matriculation (or whatever you call it). Semoga sampai ke jinjang pelamin, ameen!
Anyway. Moving on to Something Nostalgic #2 : I found a bunch of stuff related to my eldest SIL. Let's see.
We used to be very close while we were reaching adulthood. While we were studying in KL and my bro in UUM, we used to hang out together too. Not that often but there were times when she would bring me to her relatives house and all. And she always treat me to good food and stuff, that's what I love most about my SIL. Hahahaha!
Anyway, I found a bunch of pictures, the birthday pressies and card she gave me last time.
This was taken during their engagement
The hantaran tunang she made herself! Kagum tak? Heeee! That's my BIL holding it. :-D
And finally the birthday gifts and card!
Though they're old and worn, they are nostalgic stuff. That's the reason why I find it extremely hard to throw them away! It shall be passed down to my daughter, if I am to have one lah. Hehe!
Back to our main topic. What about you? How long did you date your better half before tying the knot?
