My Sister's Wedding

Wedding day is one of the biggest days in every woman's life. It is also one of the cherished memories in everyone's life. It is the important day in the life of a couple and marks the perfect occasion to wish them for their new beginning.

To the lamp of Love 
May it burn brightest in the darkest hours 
and never flicker in the winds of trial.
It was a very fine and memorable day of September 18, 2010 when my sister Arlene, the oldest in our siblings tied the knot in our hometown - in the province of Aklan. It was only a civil wedding celebration but it seems like a church or garden wedding.

 The wedding ceremony and the reception were held at Octagon Building of ASU - Ibajay.  The wedding was attended by family, relatives, friends  and other invited guests. I wasn't able to come to her wedding due to some personal reason. I'm grateful that she understood. I know she'd wished that we're there but then the event was great and I'm happy for them. And ...

My greatest wish for the two of you is that through the years, your love for each other will so deepen and grow, that years from now you will look back on 
this day, your wedding day, as the day you 
loved each other the least.

An Update

I've been into hibernation for almost four weeks now and I terribly miss the blogging world. Though I wanted to post regularly, I can't because my desk is always bombarded with a lot of workload. I have to prioritize my office tasks and cope with the changes in the daily routine of our department.

Anyway, here are some things happened in the past four weeks during my absence from blogosphere. 
  •  I enjoyed my short sojourn last Sept. 16-19, 2010 at Aringay, La Union up to Baguio City together with my bestfriend's family and relatives. We went to the beach for swimming and took a bamboo raft ride on the river.  
  • We attended mass at St. Pio Chapel in Libis, Quezon City last Sept. 23, 2010 after office hour. After the mass, I attended get-together dinner at Cabalen, Sta. Lucia Mall. I had a meaningful chitchat with my former officemates and we reminisced the unforgettable moments and experiences  we have during our PPI days in Cainta Branch Office.
    • Sadly, I lost my Nokia 5000 Cellphone Unit last Sept. 26, 2010 when I went to Big R-Robinson Novaliches to check the Collezione Boutique if they have an available C2 Pilipinas Map T'shirt so I could buy one and give it to Aieen as my simple gift for her upcoming birthday.
    • Aieen went back to Yanbu, Saudi Arabia last Oct. 01, 2010 and I accompanied her and her family to the airport for her departure.
    • Sympathetically, we're all saddened by the death of my officemate & friend's sister last Oct. 07, 2010. We went to Laguna last Saturday to send our deepest condolences to the bereaved family.
     I wish I could go back regularly to the blogging world and have enough time for blog hopping. Just "Wish Me Luck!" ♥♥♥
