The crowd laughed. With that, the bride continued her speech. An inspiring speech, I must say. I never listen to speeches made in weddings, I find them unsophisticated and fake. This one, in particular was nicely crafted and it was genuine. The couple stepped down and then the master ceremony did something I never saw before in weddings. He announced a little token of appreciation. The love birds came up with a bouquet of flowers each and presented it to their parents in-law. How sweet, I thought to myself.
Then it happened, right at that very moment, my dinner company next to me turned and looked at me. She asked me the one million dollar question, “So, when is your turn?” My typical response, “You have too much money to spare is it ? Start saving RM1 from now onwards and I’ll come collect the money from you when I think you have saved enough. Just make sure you pay up when you get the bomb from me.”
Till that “one day” surface, do me a favour ..stop bothering me with unappreciated remarks, “Oh, not married yet?”.
