Weddings are wonderful occasions. They are celebrations of love and professions of faith and trust.
It is just but right to give one of the most joyous moments of our lives a fitting celebration… one that we can share with friends and family. But, planning such an event can prove to be quite a challenge.
If you or any of your loved ones are planning to tie the knot anytime soon, know that there are better ways to make that big day a whole lot more memorable and less stressful. I’m talking about The Aristocrat Wedding Showcase.
Who doesn’t know about The Aristocrat? You’ve got to be hiding under a rock not to be familiar with this famous chain of restaurants. As far back as I can remember, The Aristocrat has been one of the most popular and go-to establishments in the metro for get-togethers and various celebrations because of their top notch service and delicious food.

This anniversary dinner was actually celebrated a day late. We were supposed to have this yesterday (the exact date) but our little daughter wasn’t feeling well. Better late than never, though. Thank you, Chilis, for the complimentary ice cream crepe-ish delight. Yum!
I remember our wedding day as if it was just yesterday. All the feelings and emotion I felt during that day are so vivid to me until now. That was back in 2001. March 24th, 11AM to be exact.
The excitement, anxiety and stress not just ON that day but the series of days leading up to it was one for the books.
Admit it, married gentlemen. You all know that weddings aren’t just little white doves and soft confetti showers.
But I tell ya, guys and girls. It is all worth it. ALL OF IT. The good and the bad. When you find the right woman/man (I’m talking to all the bachelors and single ladies), never let go. Married life is an awesome experience. It never gets old, contrary to what others say. You just have to keep at it… Marriage is a non-stop work in progress.
It is a life not to be dreaded. Embrace it and nurture it. Like wine, it gets better as it ages… Pardon the cliche.
So I say this to my wife: Honey, I may have made awful decisions in my life… But as I look back time and again, I realize that these choices are not to be regretted. Because as terrible as it may have seemed back then, ultimately it has led me to you… and THAT is one awesomely GOOD thing. You and our kids are the ONLY things I will never exchange for anything in this world.
Wow. 11 wonderful years. And when I say “wonderful”, I refer even to the difficult times of our married life. And God knows there were some really difficult ones, right?
But that’s a good thing, too. For how can one appreciate the true beauty and goodness of life if one hasn’t equally endured the struggles and hardships of it.
Thank you, Yen. For your love. For your time. For the continuous effort you put into this marriage. For being the mother of my children.
