Tales of happiness,sadness,regrets,selfishness and forgiveness.... Let me begin with happiness and forgiveness..................It was a wedding of my cousin,(my mom's sister's son, Thomas is his name)..You see,my mom was not really on talking term with my aunt but surprisingly, from this wedding, I could see all of them forging so well as real brother (my uncle) and my aunt, then I heard my uncle (my mom's bro) saying this...
" We are so old already and my days are already numbered, I am so happy that I can still live to attend my nephew's wedding some more, all those long time unhappiness, just forgive and forget lah" Period. That's what he told me and that's what I believe.
Now on the contrary, it was to me a wedding that still laced with a little bit of sadness.Thomas (my cousin,the groom) went to his only brother house to invite his ONLY brother to his wedding last week but he was shut out. It was a misunderstanding between them years ago but his older brother still chose not to forgive... I know the both of them but to me could it be so hard to forgive and live on with our fresh and blood?
Okay, this one really gets to my nerves about selfishness. When I asked my brother if he was going to attend Thomas' wedding, he said this to me." I cannot eat those food lah (he just recovered from the C), so no point I go lah." I was furious with him,then I said," Bro, remember Thomas' mother, your aunt treated you so well, when you were younger, how can you not attend her son's wedding just because of the foods?" .............You know I just hate selfish people.
I was so happy to meet up with my another cousin,after so many years (he said he could not recognize me but that does matter, we are still cousin)
The best wedding I attended so far,simply because it was a meet up and catch up time with my other cousins as well, I could still remember I used to play in their padi field when I was like 11 or 12 years old)
P/S : Now I know, to live a life without regrets is better than those money in the bank
