Today is the 7th day of the Chinese New Year. All the tedious house-visiting during the first few days of the festive period was done, and I am the most relieved. Besides the occasional annoying advice from concerned relatives about my child-free status, and my husband’s generous donations to his cousins at the gambling table, this year’s new year celebrations was quite enjoyable.
Managed to squeeze in a visit to River Hongbao 2011......
And to the annual flora extragavanza at Sentosa!
But what I had enjoyed the most, was the peaceful reunion dinner on Chinese New Year's Eve. Never had such a satisfying meal which doesn't hurt the pockets for the longest time!
Packed with activities and not even a word of complaint from my sick husband who was down with flu (must be the overdose of pineapple tarts). That is my precious – always ready, always willing to commit to my whims and fancies (with occasional grouses from him in between).
I suppose all mothers will always advise their daughters to marry a guy who loves her more than she loves him. For me, this is definitely a case of my husband loving me more than I love him. Like I often tell him, “你为我而活，我是为自己而活”.
I marry my husband not because I love him so much, or he makes my heart beat very fast. I marry him because he always makes me feel warm, safe and secure. It's always those little things he does for me everyday that shows how much he love me, no matter how much I neglect or speak to him in an annoying tone. Like buying my favourite slurpee/ice kachang, massaging my feet every night and feeding me food, just to name a few...
Till date, I am still clueless why he had chosen to marry a woman who loves herself more than him and can barely take care of herself! Must be my good karma?
He often ask me, " Do you love me more, or less, with each passing day?"
While I admit that I do not have an overwhelming passion for him, it felt good to know that this man will take good care of me for the rest of my life hopefully (Selfish Bytch!).
Shall end today's post with my favourite quote by George Sand - "There is only one happiness in life - to love and be loved".
