For the other W

There is a beautiful and convincing explanation given by the Chinese Legend...

Thumb represents your Parents,

Second (Index) finger represents your Siblings,

Middle finger represents your-Self,

Fourth (Ring) finger represents your Life Partner & the Last (Little) finger represents your children.

Firstly, open your palms (face to face), bend the middle fingers and hold them together - back to back. Secondly, open and hold the remaining three fingers and the thumb - tip to tip (as shown in the figure above).

Now, try to separate your thumbs (representing the parents)... they will open, because your parents are not destined to live with you lifelong, and have to leave you sooner or later.

Please join your thumbs as before and separate your Index fingers (representing siblings)... they will also open, because your brothers and sisters will have their own families and will have to lead their own separate lives.
Now join the Index fingers and separate your Little fingers (representing your children)... they will open too, because the children also will get married and settle down on their own some day.

Finally, join your Little fingers, and try to separate your Ring fingers (representing your spouse). You will be surprised to see that you just CANNOT....., because Husband & Wife have to remain together all their lives - through thick and thin.Monday, 21 September, marked three years from the date Wayne and I first registered our marriage in Zhengzhou (our wedding rings above). Check out our kitschy 'double happiness' profile with our marriage books taken on that day...
We took a set of studio photos in June of 2006, having 5 transformations from my Pekinese Dog hairstyle look...
And heading out to the park for an outdoor shoot...
Then turning into some fairytale-like figures...
Before having a super 'hiong' (fierce) look in my mermaid-like sequined gown.
Or how about trying to look mysterious in black?
Of course, how can we miss out on the oriental look, huh?
I wore the same cheongsum for the wedding in Zhengzhou on 25 September.
And the mermaid gown at the Singapore leg on 3 October.
We have not been really celebrating our wedding anniversary (which date, to begin with? The date of registration, or the Zhengzhou wedding date, or the Singapore one? I remembered it only because of the ticker on my blog, haha!). And it just whisks past like any other day, but we've been having major milestones in the past three years - marriage in 06, honeymoon and shifting into our own place in 07, and of course the welcoming of Rosabelle in 08.
Wayne seldom reads my blog (just views the pictures, heh!), but just like the opening of this post, I believe that a partner is for life, and no matter how much Wayne at times feels that Rosabelle takes centrestage in my life at this point, I guess I never tell him enough how important he is to me as well... heh!

To a very dedicated father and my best friend, Happy Anniversary!
