All grown up and nowhere to go

i hope my guy friends would never make me a ‘brother’

Posted on: January 24, 2010

Zee and Marc’s wedding yesterday, and the ‘sisters’ were up since 5 am to prepare for the gatecrashing session. The most awful dare must be that sour / sweet / bitter / spicy one, as the ‘brothers’ had to gulp down 2 green chili with wasabi and tabasco. One of the bros, Isa, kinda sacrificed himself and ate 2 servings and became the hero of the day, sustaining stomach pains throughout, while another one was down for the count due to heatstroke.

Overall, the wedding day was lovely and touching and I’m glad I was a part of it! Zee’s the first of my good friends to get hitched, looking forward to more happiness around me *cough* Jing *cough*. The most wonderful bit was the fact that both bride & groom didn’t get lost by the event-management side of it all, you can tell that they’re truly enjoying themselves and celebrating their love. Enjoy your honeymoon guys! Love you both!

Heading for citizenship ceremony today. I converted into Sing citizenship 5 months back in August, and while I exchanged my green passport with a new red one quite quickly after that, the officials are only going to give my pink IC later today, I suppose after all the (oath) swearing and the anthem singing. It was hard to let go of my Indo-ness, but I think, at the end of the day, I will always be Indo by birth, by association (my whole famile), and by love. I love Indo for its food, its translated manga, its crazy big hairs, and my grandpa.

So the only thing I’m losing out on is the waiver of $100 entry fee to the IRs. Cha-ching!

❤ ❤ ❤ (those are hearts, by the way)

Yeah babe, you'll always be Indo at heart. Like me, I do think of myself as half-Indo rather than totally Singaporean. Your roots are your roots, I suppose 🙂

yeah, homie!
