A Love Story

Eight Year Anniversary

It was the majestic eight. We were a happily married couple of four months living in Dubai. As my anniversary gift to mg, I put things together in this blog. On our anniversary evening, without making a call to me, Mg came back home from work earlier than he usually did to make me surprised with a cute cake. We ate dinner and cake. Mg took me out for an evening walk and had ice-cream at my favorite shop in town. Once we got back home, he read me out all what I had written about us on this blog while feeding each other all the left over cake before the semi final Euro 2012 soccer match – Spain Vs Portugal was on. After the a bit boring 90 +  extra 30 minutes game and penalty shoot out, our pick, Spain, won. Our celebrations went on. 🙂

To the love of my life

This is my very first letter to Mg responding his love for me. Unlike that many people would have written in their first love letters, mine is pretty depressing. Since at the very beginning, I knew we did have a long way to go to the point we could settle down and start a together life. Instead of pouring love and all sweet words in it, my letter is full of my concerns for our relationship (which we had not even started it yet). Nevertheless, it does show my seriousness in the relationship we were about to start. I was just reluctant to get myself in a relationship b’coz I knew myself well, if I get in, I will make it work as perfect as possible with all my heart and energy, but, at that time, I was still very young with full of dreams and energy for my own life ahead. I was so afraid of I would have to come out with a broken heart –  disturbing other things I had to do in my life if a relationship did not work out. Neither did I want that the other one felt hurt – if that did not work out just because I put less seriousness. Read the rest of this entry »

Art of LOVE

This post is the collection of the pictures to show the milestones of our together journey from the day we got to know to the day we married.

Simply, we are so blessed. 

We find ‘true love’ in each other. 

‘Love’ makes our lives a lot different.

A lot easier. A lot prettier. 

We are in love EVER.

A Song Keyed to My Heart

The song opened my heart. Eventually, it has led us to this moment – together life. We both grew up at the same village and went to the same high school. However, we did not hit it off until we met again in Yangon in 2004. I was working as a newspaper reporter in Yangon, and Mg just came back from Malaysia after being accepted by a college in the United States. He was in town while working on his application process for his U.S. student visa.  Whenever he wanted to talk about his visa documents, he often stopped by at my office and sometime, he waited outside until my news reports were done for a day. Then, we often hang out and talked about his papers over the dinner at some street shops. Read the rest of this entry »

Promise to Eternity

Eight years ago, today, someone whom I now dearly call him ‘mg’ asked me to be his life partner, and to give him seven years to be able to ask my hand from my parents. Considering the fact we were still too young, and our uncertain future ahead we had at that time, it was hard to make such a big commitment. But, a couple of weeks later, I reluctantly answered ‘yes’ and promised him I will wait for him. Passionate courtship was followed up. Through the years, best friendship has developed. Trust and understanding for each other gradually brought one true love in for us. On our eighth anniversary day, we are here in Dubai happily together as a married couple started four months ago. And, nothing else just does not matter.
