Our 10th Wedding Anniversary Gift

Yes, it is our 10th wedding anniversary!

Me and my husband have walked this far and we are still very much in love with each other. Thanks honey!

I recalled the day we decided to get married. I wasn't sure if I was ready for it.

I recalled the day we decided "Let's have a baby!". I wasn't sure if I was ready for it.

But, receiving such a gesture from our daughter, we knew the choice was never wrong....



**********************************

It was the eve of our 10th wedding anniversary and we were discussing how to celebrate this big day. I wanted to spend an evening in the best restaurant in town. I wanted to have all the feast I could have under one roof.

"where do we go?" I was running through in my mind the list of nice restaurants in town.

"I don't know, you decide." that has been the usual reply from my beloved husband.

"what about I cook tonight?" my girl said.

"you what?" her daddy asked.

"Sure, if you think you can handle." I said to her.

That was how we bought the idea of eating at home, being simple. No flowers, no luxury restaurant, no gifts, nothing. Just a simple meal prepared by our beloved daughter on our 10th wedding anniversary.

"Mummy, I will do everything myself." She told me.

Well, Lv enjoys cooking. The only part she dislike is the smell of the raw meat. So, this part would be taken care by me. "The rest will be done by me." she told me.

Fine, I will just be the watchdog then. So, we agreed. It took her four hours to prepare the feast. She made us a Marmite chicken, Miso soup and stir-fry vegetables. There were yummy of course.

This is the best gift we ever had. Thanks a lot darling!

I am a total computer dummy but I just could not resist but wanting to document this special moments in a special way. I started to surf the net looking for devices, programs I could use to make a slide show, a video.

To my greatest surprise (as I've said, I am a total computer dummy...), it turned out to be so easy. I can't believe it. In fact, the movie making program has been lying in my computer all these while!

This video clip is for our beloved daughter....

We love you always and forever :)

p/s 1: there were some animated text in it but I wasn't sure why it didn't come out as I made it (as I said, I am a computer dummy... anyway, will find out soon...)

p/s 2: to those computer dummies like me, in case you want to make one like this, check out this site http://www.rjponzio.com/2007/09/04/how-to-make-a-video-slideshow/
