haha. does your breakfast change after years of marriage?
during the first year of marriage, you serve your beloved husband home-cooked nasi lemak on your expensive china plate laced with banana leaf to give it a nice aroma. there’s ayam masak merah, there’s sambal sotong, sambal kerang, sambal ikan bilis and even sayur kangkung. the sambals, boiled egg and cucumber are artfully arranged around the rice to create the illusion of eating at a fancy fine-dining restaurant. you even cut the cucumbers in heart shape.
fast-forward 20 years later, your husband takes his own plate from the cupboard, and had to scoop up his own nasi lemak from the rusty rice-cooker. the burnt sambal is still in the pot, the boiled egg is still in its shell, and you forgot to buy the cucumber!
ye ke? hihi.

during your first year of marriage
through the 2nd year of marriage
3rd year and counting
5th year, but where’s the creativity now? hihi
after 10 years!
15 years down the road? tsk tsk.
haha. after 20 years, huh?
and what happens after 25 years of marriage?
haha. just for laughs, ladies.
may your marriage is always blissfully served on a cute plate of nicely brown toasted bread, with a heart-shaped sunny side up egg. and a pretty flower on the side. made with love.
happy anniversary to those celebrating their 1st, 5th, 10th or 25th year of marriage. cheers.
