Weddings and Harry Potter

Last Saturday was a busy busy day. 

7.30 a.m. : I was at Popular City Mall, picking up my pre-order copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

10.00 a.m. : I was inside Sacred Heart Cathedral waiting for Verma and Ian to get married.  Ian Geraint Jones was in a kilt while Verma Vitales was in a luscious white halter neck gown that swept the floor. 

1.00 p.m. : Verma and Ian couldn't wait to get their Harry Potter copies and went straight from church to the bookstore.  Result: their photos were published in two local dailies and one national newspaper.  At the time, I'd just left the church.

2.00 p.m. : At home, marking.  *Had to sit on Harry Potter book to finish work.  Most agonizing.*

5.00 p.m. : On the road to Langkah Syabas for the happy couple's outdoor wedding dinner.  Lucky it didn't rain.  But it sure was memorable.  Half of the tables were under blue tents and were equipped with bottles of white wine and lihing.  They had seashells, crystals and little fish figures everywhere.  I sat at my table and gazed at the white sands, blue seas and boats bobbing in the distance.  Then the sun HAD to set and cast a beautiful orange red light on everything.  Imagine blue green (the theme!) overlaid with orange.  Beautiful...

Okay that's it.  Wanna finish my Harry Potter book.  Yeah, haven't finished it cos I had so much work to do.  Deadlines everyday...
