50 years today!!
Today marks the 50th Golden Wedding Anniversary of my parents.
No, there is no big celebration here. They are away in Alaska on a cruise. (with my brother and his family - bleah! :P)
And for those who tagged me on the a tribute to my mum and dad - this is it.
Morning wake up calls and breakfast was taken care of by Dad. He was a wizard at making half boiled eggs, french toast and oats which we were forced to consume, like it or not, before we made our way to school. He was really good at sleeping in front of the TV. A football fanatic, that saw me following him for numerous football games and even all the way up to Malaysia for Malaysia cup matches.
She slept in late and took care of lunch, dinner and the general household. A good cook who never liked anyone to mess up her kitchen. Making nonya kueh was her specialty, but she prefered spending her time on mahjong, which saw me sitting many a times by the mahjong table, and helping her out when she had to take a "loo" break. A fiery temper that seems to have mellowed a little with age.
And after 50 years, they have been blessed with 3 children, and 6 grandchildren.
Happy Anniversary Mum & Dad!!
