Valentine: Melvin & Agness
Traxx FM played the song 'Love is in the Air' as I drove down to the City Centre in the afternoon. It struck me that Valentine's Day is today. Yes - its the day that lovers around the globe (including families and loved ones)- celebrate Love. Its the time that the Florists around the world also inflate the price of flowers by 100 - 300%. Some special arrangements can be yours on Valentine's Day for RM888.00. you may ask if its worth it. I say its worth it - why?
Altough the price tags seem astronomical - Love knows no boundaries for those who an afford the luxury. If you feel its extravagant, well think about this. In the old days the Iban warriors would have to go out and hunt for heads to make up for the lack of flowers. The only way to an Iban maiden's heart that time means heads must roll. If this tradition had not been stopped by the British rulers last time
During medievel times too, brave knights have to slay dragons to prove their love. So if you think of it this way I think pressing the button to purchase those flowers is as brave as you can get.
You just have to do without that regular supply of beer for the next twelve months. Its better than hunting heads or dragons - unless she is worth it.
Melvin & Agness Wedding
Away from this all, I would like to feature a friend's recent wedding in my Valentine blog. Congratulations buddy! Melvin, who got married on the 10th of February recently is actually my neighbour and he stays just across me. He's a true Iban warrior who managed to capture the heart of Ms. Agness a lovely Iban maiden - without going headhunting or killing dragons.
The Toast - you can see Melvin turning into the Incredible Hunk - minus the necktie
