An engagement party

DSC_0186He’s now 28 and last year graduated from medical school. I met her girlfriend then during his graduation celebration and last night he faces another milestone in his life – it was his “engagement party” cum advance wedding reception for their families and friends who would not be able to attend the event in Denver. I’ve written about his graduation here last year.

Those who have been close to the family from work remembers a very shy kid. I brought him a token gift at the family celebration for his high school graduation and he just went hiding to his room after quietly thanking me. But four years later when I met him at his Dad’s 55th birthday, he’s bloomed. I have noticed a big difference in his personality. From growing in the shadow of a good looking and gregarious brother, college made him into a very confident young man which he carries beautifully up to this day.

Am glad that he’s fallen in love with someone who shares his dreams and ideals. Everyone is very happy with their match. Am sure he’ll grow a family like what his parents have given him.

To Vanna and Hercy, I wish you only the best from hereon forward.

    It was but most of all because the hosts are very warm, sincere and hospitable people. They spare no expense at all for their children up to the valet parking.

  5. That looks more like a wedding than an engagement. I’m sure you had a very enjoyable time.

    Well it really was in lieu of traveling all the way to the wedding in Denver, the reception was for those who couldn’t attend. So it was actually more a wedding reception. It was a great time Dorothy.
