Memory is the diary

人生有几个十年? How many ten years we can have in life? So fast, I have completed four of mine.
My mama was a very beautiful lady, and I really think so, regardless how many times I look at this portrait of her.

Both of them were a very beautiful couple. My papa was also a good looking man. Even when he was 60+, I heard people calling him Yean Tou Pek (in Hokkein). Meaning handsome uncle. My beloved papa and mama have both gone to a better place now.
My first year birthday portrait. My mama would take me to photo studio to take a picture with a fake cake every year on my birthday. I guess this was the only present that she gave me on my birthday. I don't remember I had any birthday party.

2 years old birthday portrait with my brothers and sister. I could still remember this checkered skirt of my big sister. She handed down to me when she outgrew the skirt.
Yours truly with my kindergarten art work and my brother, who is 2 years elder than me.

Let me fast forward a little bit.

I met him, my first date when I was at 24 years old. 

Picture was taken at Sunway Pyramid 1997. This day, we were officially holding each other hands (*blush).
I completed my Computer Science degree in 1998. This was the first time, he buying me flowers.

Years later, I have got married with him and given birth to two beautiful daughters.
This post is actually triggered by Anay, Twilight Man. He wrote about his memorable birthdays and childhood life. SK too, he had shared about his old time pictures. Today, mamarazzi of Small Kuching too blogged about her memory lanes. It is kind of interesting to look back and ponder once in a while, so that we can appreciate our life more.

Happy weekend, folk!

  7. Lovely memories. The photographs of your parents and your siblings together are indeed precious! My only baby photo was when I was three years old, my family was poor back then and camera is definitely not "in the picture"! One day, your own children would proudly show their kids grandma and grandpa photos!
    Have a great week weekend!

  15. Precious childhood pixz of you & parents for remembrance. Did you put them up on slide show during your wedding dinner? Its getting very popular nowadays with newly married couple thanking their parents with songs like 'You Raised me Up' etc and pixz of their parents & their bride & groom childhood pixz until holding hands etc. Bananaz used this song 'Xie Xie Ni' by Dao Lang on power point slides with all our childhood, parents, relatives & friends pixz to thank everybody. Guess what was our marching-in song? It's Kal Ho Naa Ho..which has taken some people by surprised thought they attended a wrong wedding.
