The 44th Wedding Anniversary

My parents' wedding anniversary is on the 8th of March. This year, we booked a private room in Grand Imperial Restaurant to celebrate this wonderful occasion with them.

"There’s no greater gift
than wonderful parents —
the kind of a father and mother
Who’ve built a good marriage
and share with their children
the love that they feel for each other."

My little niece represented all of us to present a card to the 2 VIPs.

What's written inside the card? My son was ready to capture the moment of sweet surprise :-)

Something funny?

Admiring the card printed with their photos, plus greetings and funny word bubbles from everyone.

My dad is a good singer. When I was young, I used to hear him sing in the shower.
I enjoy listening to him sing ... and I'm sure mom is his number 1 fan.

After a sumptuous meal, we continued our celebration in my brother's house.

My youngest brother skyped from Australia to share this joyous occasion together.

There're 3 hearts printed on the card. My dad was requested to fill in each of the heart with one chinese word. The first heart must be written with “我” (I)。When asked about what to write on the second heart, my little niece suggested shyly, "愛“ (love).

I teased my dad not to mistakenly write “我忍妳”, instead of “我愛妳”。

Happy loving couple of 44 years... and mom still remembers she wore a green dress on their first date!

There's no greater gift
than warm, caring parents —
the kind of a husband and wife
Who bring up their children
with so much devotion,
becoming their good friends for life...

The first 2 sets of speech bubble on the card were contributed by my brothers, and the bottom one was written by me.

There's no greater gift
than parents like you —
the most wonderful father and mother,
Who are both loved so much
and have grown even dearer
from one special year to another.

Happy Anniversary
We Love You!

Thank you very much, Pakmat.
My parents are easily contended, happy, helpful & loving. They've set good examples for my brothers & I. I'm glad they've instilled good values in us... one of it is not being materialistic :-)

Welcome Terri!
I can see you have a loving and close knit family too, and I am very sure you are going to celebrate many many anniversaries with your loved ones. By then do remember to let your kids and grandkids prepare the dishes for you even though you're a gourmet cook, ha! ha!

Hi Uncle Lee, thank you for your warm wishes. My mom and dad are already 70+, but they look younger than their age. Guess love keeps them looking young :-)
