Tuesday, May 12, 2009 was another grand celebration for the family. I was my Uncle Freddie and Auntie Joji's silver wedding anniversary. Family and friends gathered at tthe Archbishop Chapel to witness their renewal of vows. It was so nice to see familiar happy faces like those of Auntie Janet who was their Maid of Honor who just arrived from USA, Florida with his brother Joey and his family. I was also delighted to see Patricia looking real pretty in her fancy flower girl's dress. And of course Auntie Susan and Uncle Noel and the rest of the clan. A reception followed at the Grand Convention Restaurant after the mass.
As you may all recall, Engr. Frederick David Chiong was one of our principal sponsors and her wife Mrs Ma. Jocelyn Chiong was also one of our readers during our wedding. For me, witnessing the celebration of their 25th wedding anniversary was truly an inspiration. And as Wendell and I is about to celebrate our first wedding anniversary this June, we hope that we too could reach the same milestone that they had achieved as a couple.
Congratulations Uncle Fred and Auntie Joji and may you have many more years of married bliss.
