Friday, August 8, 2008


Today is the 8th day of the 8th month, August, of the year 2008. 8-8-8... To Chinese philosophy, it's a sign of infinity. Never ending. Forever. It might be a significant day to some of us but not for me, except that I attended a relative's wedding. Surely you have heard about almost a hundred or even a thousand of weddings today. They say it's "masuwerte", lucky to have started a new life with three lucky number "8's". The wedding was in San Juan and it was unusual not to see traffic on a Friday morning, especially in EDSA. So we arrived in the church almost an hour early. :-) The bride was pretty in her very simple gown, with their 4-year old daughter as the little bride. Cute. Wonder why I didn't think about that on our wedding, maybe because my kiddo was just too young to be walking down the aisle alone. I even doubt she would do it. So I guess it was better that way, making her the only flower girl. With her flowers on a silver tin can. . :-)
After the ceremony, we then headed to Edsa Shangri-la for the reception. It was great, the table centerpieces and the ceiling draperies, the cake, but not so good for the food. I would just maybe rate it a 6 out of 10. But was able to stuff my empty stomach. Hubby even went for the second round. The host of the program was good, a professional maybe. Everyone seemed crying hearing the bride thanking everyone and her parents for everything. That was quiet a speech. Spontaneous but was really heart-felt. Sigh!
It was quiet a good day. Not bad for celebrating the 8th day of the 8th month, year '08. :-)
