Journey of Love
Our Registry of Marriage
||The Giddy Gal
Hailing from the beautiful
bougainvillea city that is famous for its limestone caves, but more so for
its (ahem!) gorgeous women, Joyce is one of Ipoh's most valuable exports to
the northern region of Peninsular Malaysia.
The Giddy Guy
Peter was born in the coolest
(as in temperature) quaint and serene town in Malaysia: Taiping. He is
an ardent football fan and hopes to emulate Zidane one fine day.
The Forging of the Giddies (a.k.a. How We Met)
- by Peter
I can still vividly
remember the day I met Joyce during our time in UKM (National
University of Malaysia). She was just the sweetest and cutest
girl around! In came this strikingly gorgeous lady, walking
angelically into the cafeteria. She took her lunch and settled
down comfortably with her group of friends. There was an empty
seat just beside her. I was thinking to myself, “Hmmm, now is
my chance.” Rather not to seem so direct, I was pretending to
look for a seat in the distance, and suddenly found this seat right
in front of me. I politely asked Joyce whether the seat is
taken, and if she did not mind I sat beside her. Heheheh.
She said it was ok, and she would not bite! That was more than
what I bargained for, as I was expecting only a one or two syllable
reply. The rest they say was history.
We began a four-year
journey together in university discovering our fondness for each
other’s company, our many similarities spiritually and mentally, and
sharing an emotional bond which eventually led to love. She
was my best friend and still is. Things were pretty intense at
times along the way; we had our fair shares of ups and downs.
The joys and laughter we had in a field trip to Cameron Highlands,
the Bon Jovi concert, the many classes we shared together and
especially during the times we spent together on the old faithful
C70 bike. There were also the frown and tears we brought upon
each other, often over something trivial, sometimes culminating into
heated arguments. Those were testing times for our
relationship, and it taught me to celebrate our differences and the
richness in the relationship. I would never forget those
eventful years in UKM…

This is what people call the
"pak-thoh" period la...
Where Giddy Becomes
Giddier (a.k.a. The Engagement)
- by Joyce
All my life, I had dreamt of the
perfect-est proposal; one that would sweep me off my feet and leave me
wondering if I was in a dream. I would picture the moment time and
again in my mind, playing every detail to perfection. Well, little did I know that
when I met Peter, he would be my knight in errr........denim jeans - my
confidant, my soul mate and a unique individual that would complete my life.
It was my birthday and Peter
with some really gorgeous flowers: two big bouquets of my favorite deep red roses and lilies. We
went out for a lavish dinner at my favorite restaurant, with the works:
mouth-watering food, wine,
dessert, great music, and excellent company, of course!
After dinner, he got down on one knee, whipped out the most beautiful ring
ever and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him....
I felt like a princess in a magical fairy tale and that beautiful moment was absolutely
romantic beyond words...
..... I was left breathless (....of course I said YES after I caught my
breath :)). It will definitely be a day I will cherish for the rest of my life.
