I Have A Dowry.

No, I don't remember converting to Islam, or some other religion / nation that has a dowry culture. In fact, the dowry was of my own making and will most probably be my own undoing since there's no way to go but forward (and I hate turning back on my words). What do you mean I lost you at "I have a dowry"? Sigh. Okay. Simply put, I put a dowry on my head when I took the oath that I wouldn't be running off marrying someone until I bought my parents a house. What if they want a yacht? Well, they prefer that and and I may need to work my buns off before I can marry (not that it's any time soon). Until then, I'm off the bachelorette list, the market (despite the fact that I've never been on), and bouquet throwing line up. In lieu of this, I would like to remind future me that I should at least think about it before I say "yes" because it's not just "yes, I'll marry you." It's more like "yes, you can have me. all of me. my children. my house. yada yada yada"

Anyway, to those planning to marry, or planning to at least get engaged, THINK TWICE. Haha! Just kidding, Anyway I'm not a love guru so it's not my business to give advices, a simple congratulations then.

And I'm off to posting some pictures of the wedding. These were taken by the mystery camera bearer of Ptr. John's camera & Genesis Rufino. Too bad we had to do the wedding inside, instead of the original Garden Wedding. It was only drizzling, but we couldn't risk it. Will upload more soon (when I get my hands on the official photographer's digitals!)
