It's the eleventh anniversary of hubby and I being a couple together! Yes!!! ELEVENTH YEAR!! Awesome huh?!
Now, before you go on thinking I'm old, please don't... FYI, I'm going to touch the big three-oh in a couple of weeks but just want to make a point that I am still young!
Anyhooo.... back to our eleventh year thingy... yeap! Hubby and I first met almost at the end of 1997, when we were still in high school and preparing for our final exams. We met in one of the most ancient and dinosaur-est method ever.... (maybe not then cos back then, the Internet is still a new thing and I don't get to touch a computer until at least 2 years later!)
Yeap... we actually wrote letters, glued the envelope and stamp and mailed each other almost every week. We were pen pals for a few months before we finally met up face to face for a casual date after our final exams (while we were waiting for our exam results).
During those era, teen mags were popular with penpal ads and I had posted my ad in the beginning of 97... almost half a year later, the mag published my ad and hubby coincidentally bought that one and only issue of the mag (cos he saw some song lyrics published in it which was why he bought it for initially)
So he wrote to me, I wrote to him, we wrote to each other, then we meet up and I got a part-time job as a sales promoter while hubby enrolled to a college and we called each other quite often, he will come over after his classes to have lunch with me (I was still doing the part-time job in order to save up money to go college), I'm really cutting a long story short here... come on.. it's an 11 years old story, I don't think you'd want to read that long history!), so anyway, on 1st March 1999, we became a couple.
To this date, I think hubby will only remember this date the most since it's been our anniversary date for like... errmmm... forever? Even our marriage registration date is not as significant as this date!
Oh, which by the way, I would also like to mention that hubby was my first and only boyfriend and so was I, the first and only girlfriend of his :D Well, we may not have many relationships when it comes to love but I guess, if you could have just one, the right one, that is enough...
And to think we've been through many ups and downs together after 11 years! And to think again, we all started out as PEN PALS!
To my hubby,
I hope to have many many many many more 11 years with you, dear. Thanks for being there throughout the years and love you loads!
