Happy Anniversary!

I found some old photos of my parents taken on their wedding day. Mom was 23 then and Dad was 30 years old. That was 47 years ago. I thought it would be nice to put this in my blog as a remembrance for such an auspicious day. Mom, you looked gorgeous (Wah! Such tiny waist you have there and Dad, you were so handsome!) Mom, looks like I inherited your tiny waist but at the wrong spot, my thighs! LOL.....and Dad, I inherited the love of food from you apart from your not too Chinese look.
I know it was not possible for me to be physically there on your wedding day ;o) so, it's great that I still have the opportunity to have a glimpse of how that day was through the photos you both took. Well Dad, I only wished that you were still here to go on food trips with me. Mom, way to go on joining the Malay Mail Big Walk recently. Keep yourself active and happy! Happy Belated Anniversary ...I love you both, Mom & Dad!

More pics in future Anniversaries!

What a fantastic pic and post! It still amazes me how small waistlines were back then. Damnnnn! I think my mum's waist then would be about the size of my thigh! Sigh...
