Since my last post on Part 1 of this “New Chapter”, I received quite a number of messages from long lost friends and former colleagues which read along the lines of “…I can’t believe you’re actually getting married!”
What’s that supposed to mean?! Lol
*smirk* I guess mum wasn’t the only one who thought I was going to stay faithful to my first love – my computer/work – for the rest of my busy existence. Either that or it just insinuates ineligibility. Lol
Oh and BTW, #babybaby did read my blog post and I must say…I don’t think he was very pleased about the comment I made about him being… I quote:
Sure, we have our differences. We have a different opinion on a lot of things. We have different taste in things (lately and more apparently as I discovered - in home deco and interior design *hand-on-forehead*). Believe me, we are having a hallelujah time deciding on the style/furniture of our first home together, but that’s another story. It’s an interesting journey alright – this marriage thing. Nevertheless, I cherish every moment of it, and believe me, having a wonderful mentor to guide us through this oh-so-interesting journey makes all the difference.
We’re currently undergoing a pre-marital counselling course with our Pastor – Rev. Kevin Loo – and I must say that we couldn’t have asked for a better counsellor/mentor. It’s been such an eye-opener and I’d love to share more about the funny yet practical things we picked up from our sessions with him, if he gives me his permission of course. All that in another blog post, but in the meantime, back to this.
So #babybaby and I have our differences, but at the same time, we also share some similarities:
1) We are boring people.
Or should I just speak for myself (otherwise, kena marah again). *laugh* Boring – perhaps I should re-define that for better understanding.
bor·ing (bôr ng, b r -) adj. Doesn’t like to go out, doesn’t like to party, shy of crowds, loves to stay home and be anti- social; not the biggest fan of fine dining, doesn’t drink, doesn’t smoke.
2) We are gluttons.
Okay. I’m the glutton. Lol
glut·ton (gl t n) n. Foodie; gets hungry every 2 to 3 hours; wakes up hungry, and doesn’t stop eating until it’s time to sleep
3) We are techies.
Or more like #babybaby’s a techie, I’m just a regular gadget enthusiast. :-D I may be a Computer Science grad but that doesn’t make me a geek. Lol
tech•ie or tek•kie (ˈtɛk i) n. Informal. Fascinated by all things digital, especially relating to music, mobile/communications, audio/visual…and now, home improvement. lol
Obviously those are not the only reasons why I love #babybaby. I love #babybaby for a lot of reasons (he’s the absolute best!) but since we’re not each other’s clone, it sure does help that we agree on some things. Haha.
