Weekend Review


It was another eventful weekend! On Saturday we had another wedding (I guess it's a good time to get married) to attend. Best part is was that he was also one of those folks that I have been waiting for to get married and both were a week apart. Talk about coincidences.

A long time ago there were also three of us in our group of cousins who were of the same age. Joey, Roland and I. We were always together during family functions and parties. Back in the old days.

Once we grew up we sorta drifted apart and with work sometimes taking priority we didn't meet up as often as we should have. Sadly as fate would have it Joey met with a terrible accident several years ago and although he survived he was never the same. They had to reconstruct part of his skull although he recovered there was always some sort of medication he had to take. A few years ago Joey sadly passed away leaving behind a young wife and two very young children. They moved back to her folks place in Sabah and I have not seen them since.

That left Roland and me. Now Roland was a shy sort of guy too and I'm so happy that he managed to finally tie the knot. I didn't participate as much in his wedding like I did for Sean's but inside I was quietly happy for him.
The funny thing was at the church when the priest showed up, he was in fact Joey's classmate whom I knew too. And that was what got me to thinking about the past and our old friendship and camaraderie! In a way I felt Joey was there too.

The wedding was pretty nice and I finally got to see my daughter dance. Well this time there was no dancing and no dance music but a singer and a backup she was really happy to dance. Go figure! LOL She was fun to watch and at the end of some songs she took a bow. My daughter continues to amaze me because I don't know where she learned that from. Unfortunately I didn't take the camera this time!

On Sunday we also had a surprise in store for the little one. We took her for the the Disney Magic show that is currently in town. Now I remember going for a few shows with my Mum (dad had died early) and those memories are still with me. It was fun then too. So on 11/11 (November 11) at 11 we watched the show. I think she was really excited and happy to see her cartoon characters come to life. Clapping and laughing along. I'm glad that we had taken her. Unfortunately, the organizers did not allow for cameras to be taken inside so again no photos. But the memories will live on I'm sure just like my memories of the first Disney show I went for. Those folks sure do know how to make a kid happy!
