My Shobe's Wedding

Like a grand finale for my wedding season.....my last wedding for the year (I think) is for my very own sis! My younger sis tied the knot and my hwole family are full of emotions. It's the first wedding in our family. We are all daddy's girls...and you can just imagine how he felt..how we felt when my sis walked down the aisle.

It was a beautiful chinese wedding. The ceremony was held at the San Agustin church and the reception at the Sheraton Hotel Grand Ballroom.

My sister was so beautiful. Her gown...her face...she was indeed a wonderful woman. I am very happy for her...a bit sad that I know things will not be the same after the wedding as she moved in to their new home. My baby sis asks..."why does everybody have to go?..." Part of life...are inevitable changes that one must go through. I have been waking up with my sister at the other bed...all my life now....and after her wedding...I wake up to an empty bed beside mine.

I remember how a dear friend told me...sister's relationships get better when they each get married. I can feel it is right...it's js been a day and I realize how much I love my sister.

My dad is the only man in the family...it's harder I think for him...especially that my mom is gone already. It's heartbreaking for us girls not to have a mom at a moment like this...but must be tougher for my dad, I am sure. Letting go to enable one to move on the next chapter of life is but a fact to accept.

Best wishes to my beloved sis Che and congratulations to her husband Jeff....please, please take care of her and love her with all your heart.

This is my family

A momentous day in our lives =)
