What it felt to be officially married? Quite a vague one honestly. Such a huge stepping stone in life where you put your relationship officially, legal; telling the world you are officially husband and wife.
Well, I came to a point where i tend to not worry too much of the future. Planning is a must. But my focus is always to appreciate the present more. Finally, happy valentines my dear, we are getting married on 14.02.2016.

Coming for ROM (Registration of Marriage) during valentines was a bold move. Especially on weekends. The place was seriously jam packed. Coming in to Thean Hou was already quite a traffic. We were in waiting for ROM for almost an hour, our timing was 5pm (the last slot). We needed to take waiting number again when we arrive (we got the last number, tsk tsk).
Of course charges was higher too, we paid RM218 for registration. Fyi, government office, JPN charges was only RM20+8, which needed to be done before submitting documents to Thean Hou Temple.
Weather was hot and humid. There was no a/c facilities outside the ROM office. But well, everything paid off once we stepped in. Feeling sorry to our family and relatives for the long wait, especially our friends that came all the way and delaying their own valentines celebration.

Finally we are allowed to come inside! Love the a/c lol. Our family, relatives and friends were all standing at the side and seating behind us. Felt so sorry to them! First round, document checking and endorsement. Then we have to wait awhile until we can enter one of the rooms for our official ROM ceremony.

Well was quite a tense one when everything is going legal. But we did enjoy ourselves in the process. Fortunately there was no need for any speeches, as i lost my voice on the day of the ROM! I was at least 95% mute. Due to last night open house gathering, lol. Got laughed at when i struggled to say "yes, i do".

Instead of worrying of our future. Lets appreciate the present. Happy valentines everyone. If you ever visit Thean Hou Temple do go upstairs, the decorations are beautiful. If you ever planning for ROM at Thean Hou Temple, you know you can reach me via email for additional information. After all, we did our research all the way from Dubai to Malaysia. We basically know pretty much in detail of various steps.
|Love you all. Happy to share our joyous Event.|
