I am counting down to my 12th wedding anniversary, another 10 days to be exact, 16th of November. I am indeed blessed to have this beautiful woman as my wife, and as a mother for my two wonderful sons.
So they say, fate will have it, indeed i am fated to be in this lasting union with this wonderful woman, i am glad. Recalling the time how i met her, man i tell you it was indeed a sweetest memory, so here we go guys, hold on to your seats.
The nature of my job then, was to call the "cargo agents" as i was representing an airline for their cargo business, it was as mundane and as routine as it was to be, so i called and i called the customers, untill over the other end of the line, i was welcome by this voice that i have never heard before, at one voice i was struck, " Good afternoon, Dimerco" coming from the other side, didnt know who she was then, so the next few days, on the pretext of paying visit to customers with my ultimate objective in finding who was the girl behind that sweet voice.
As i sauntered in to her office, i saw one unfamiliar face,which looked very inviting and nice, drumed up my courage, walked over,passed her my business card, there was the beggining of the happily after, couldnt forget her after that meeting, (never told my wife,untill now)
For the next few days, my only mission was to get to know her more and better, it was kind of sad at one point when she told me that she would be going back to her hometown in the next few days as she here for training only. As cool as i was, i invited her for lunch just to say good bye, which she willingly accepted.
We had lunch (untill now, my wife still complains that she bought me the first lunch when as a man i should be paying.) The next day, she left, i thought i would never see her again, untill after one month she called me and wishing me a Merry Christmas, for the next few months our only communication was only via phones.
I told myself at one point that i couldnt take it anymore, and the words "i love you" must be conveyed to her loud and clear, so i did and she reciprocated. But then again, we had one problem though, she was staying far, and i told her i didnt like long distant love affair and i was not willing to relocate to her hometown too.
My wife made the decision and she told me she would asked her boss for ther to be stationed here, then one day she called and told me she was driving up to Penang alone to see me, i put her up in my sister's house but ended up we cohibited.
We stayed together for a year, and in 1996, 16th November, we were legally married, and she has been a wonderful part of my life since.
P/S... I love you girl, and i am thankful for all that you have done.
