mash & debra

Venue: Bedok Methodist Church . Changi Beach Club | Videographer: Androids In Boots | Flowers: Windflowerflorist

I met Debra at Xinnie & Chiyong‘s wedding while waiting in line in the bathroom of only two stalls, which gave us time to chat for a bit. She took my namecard back to Mash and he told her that he had already dropped us an enquiry. It’s funny how our paths have crossed and paralleled.

Earlier this year, my family grieved over the passing of my uncle and the day his ashes came back to us for sea burial, it happened to be my birthday. I’m guilty of sharing it on social media so that I didn’t have to tell people individually why I haven’t been the best at replying their messages. More often than not, when you feel like you’re going through this thing called life alone, you’d be proven wrong. February 2019 was when Debra’s life and mine paralleled. We were both grieving over the loss of our own uncles, we both had a staycation booked and crazily, we also learnt that we share the same birthday.
