Thank you and congrats to Ben and Mary for the invitation and wedding. I will make sure I'll reschedule my time for the coming assignments for this event.
Let me share to you something - the transitions of life after leaving high school.
17-18 years old:
You'll begin to know that some of your friends have driving licenses.
18 years old:
You'll begin knowing your friend's plans, either to work or to pursue their studies to college/uni.
20 years old:
You'll begin seeing friends being graduated and by this moment, maybe you'd been invited to a wedding PERSONALLY :) Yeah, not by your parents' name, your own name.
In the future, you will see:
Your friends graduated with a degree cert
Your friends got married and you'd been invited.
Most of your peers begin to work full time.
And later on:
You'll be invited to your friends' house opening
Your friends' have full-moon celebration of their firstborn child.
I just wonder, when will be my turn to get married? Hmmmm.....
By the way, that is the second wedding invitation that I'd received this year. The first one was a Malay wedding between my FICM coursemate Nur Izrein and Shaiful Nizam (I hope I spell your name right). I think both are currently pursuing their studies in Australia. Good luck.
