Another busy weekend is coming to an end and tomorrow it's back to the office again.
Although my life seems to be all about work and our new cafe, I shall resist the urge to talk about the cafe (again!) and try and be more reflective about other matters...
Let's see... hmmm.... okay here goes...
Earlier this week, one of my closest friends broke up (sort of) with her BF. I considered it a break up because one of the phrases he used during a really SERIOUS conversation they had was something like "we should try to spend time together to continue to build the FRIENDSHIP". But I really cannot say for sure that he was trying to end the relationship at all, so don't take my word for it. Although they discovered vast differences in their expectations (e.g. different ambitions, ideals, values) but my friend still wants to fight to make the relationship work and not give up so easily... otherwise what was the point of the whole getting together?
I really felt so bad in my heart for her (because naturally I'm on her side) but of course the decision is up to her. And it's not a bad thing to want to work at the relationship. But I did tell her that it always takes TWO to tango.
Anyway... these kind of conversations make me stop to think about how terrific my own hubby really is. I mean, it's not always Cloud 9, but at least I know that whatever happens... I can count on him to never give up on 'US'!!! Uh oh, am I sounding to sappy already?
It's too bad that all of you (my darling parents and brothers) may not have had to great honour (hehehe...) of knowing MH very well yet. But I'm glad you didn't behave like the family in 'Meet the Parents' and you didn't scare him away (not that much anyway... at least he stuck through the ordeal!).
Okay... this is special news insight on the personality of the day: Mr Yau MH (drum roll please)
His background may be a little different from our family... and his sense of humour may not exactly have the same formula as ours. But one thing about him is that he always strives not to let the past hold him back. So instead of blaming his past on giving him a different value system, he'll strive to establish a fresh new value system based on what's right... not based on a 'this is how things have always been done' type of thinking. He questions everything (which sometimes can be irritating) but only because he believes that there's always a better way to do something and not just stay in a rut. Yet at the same time, he is dependable (more so than me!) because once he establishes something, he will always do it that way (whether it refers to how we wash dishes or how we resolve conflicts). Unless of course we find a better way to do it.
Okay, that's all I want to say for now. I wanted to say this because men sometimes don't like to talk much about themselves... so as the doting wife, I just felt I wanted to give the well deserved credit to MH. And you know me... I love helping to build bridges... even if it's one brick for now.
P.S. Humour formula can always be reblended into interesting new mixes
