Introducing My Daughter..

This is something I've been putting off posting for a while now. If you've noticed, there's a pronounced gap in my postings between February and May last year.

It was because we went through a personal tragedy during that period. We lost our daughter (7 months stillborn) in March 2010, and despite what everyone has to say on the matter it will still take a while for us (me, at least) to get over.

Thing is, I don't know if you can "get over" something heart-breaking like this. The best you can do is to "get with" the pain, and live with it, pick up the pieces and live through it.. my 2 cents.

Okay, enough with the melodramatics. We've decided to honour her memory by celebrating Bethany Joy Lim Jia Qian's (that's her name, in its full glory) birthday as we would our own, and we've adopted her due date as her birthday.

Bethany would have been a year old toddler today, so enjoy the photos. I've deliberately refrained from commenting on the photos so as to not trivialize the occasion. Sometimes pictures do paint a thousand words.. Enjoy:)

Aysa's Wedding

HGH Convention Centre
Lot 475 Jalan Sentul

(Coordinates: 3° 10' 48.25", 101° 41' 37.00")

Our neighbour's daughter got married today, and we were of course invited to make merry and join in the festivities. The wedding was held in a rather upscale and posh looking school hall in Sentul.

We were not even aware this function/convention hall existed until we received the invitation from our neighbour. If we're not mistaken this 'convention centre'  actually belongs to Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan (C) Sentul.
