My Life Would Suck Without You

Hubby and I will be celebrating our 2nd year wedding anniversary next week and the best part is we will be celebrating it in Langkawi. Can you believe that my husband has never been to Langkawi? He’s acting like an excited little boy going on a trip far far away.

I can’t believe we’ve been married for almost 2 years now. How time flies when you’re having fun eh? I can still remember picking him up from the airport when he first arrived from Kuching 4 years ago. He was wearing his red MU t-shirt with blue jeans and pushing his trolley outside the arrival gate. (I told myself that I would never go out with an MU supporter coz they’re SOOOOOO Over The Top!! I guessed I spoke too soon).

When I saw him the first thing that popped in my head was, “Thank god he’s tall!!” Hahahahha…Seriously, I would have just left him at the airport if he was short. Hahahaha…Gila evil!!

I asked myself what made me fall in love with this man and agreed to become his wife. It’s not like we have many things in common. Yes, essentially we love music and we love watching movies and eating out but our taste in music and food are different.

He’s a football craze person and would watch sports, any kind of sports on television non-stop. I on the other hand am not. If there’s a football match on TV I would change the channel really quickly. The only time I watch football is during the World Cup and even then I’d only watch the Brazillians play. So that’s like football once every 4 years for me. But there was this one time where I had learned the names of most of the EPL players because he asked me to join in the Football Fantasy League. He knows I am a very competitive person and the only reason why I would learn the names of the players is so that I could pick them to be in my team, win and score high points. Well, at least now I know how ugly Cisse is and that Xabi Alonso is Spanish and not black (don’t ask, long story).

He would order a different dish on the menu everytime and willing to try them out while I would stick to the same dish I had ordered the last time I came to the restaurant. If I know that dish is delicious then I won't order anything else but that.

He listens to weird music well not exactly weird but not exactly mainstream either and would annoy me by asking me to listen to the song he’s just “found” and tell him what I think of the song. He gets excited when he listens to singers like Adele, Kokokaina and those Indonesian bands. He’s into RnB and I am so NOT! I can’t stand USHER!

When we fight, he would rather talk about the fight, about feelings and why I felt angry or hurt while I would rather keep quiet, cool down, sulk for a bit then talk about it. I am not a talker. When I am upset I get to one corner and keep quiet. But hubby is a talker. He likes to analyse things so he could understand where all the anger were coming from. Sometimes he analyses things too much I think!

He can sleep with the lights and tv on while I on the other hand must sleep in total darkness and in total silence.

But somehow, with all the things that we don’t have in common we managed to find a middle ground to make it work. I’m not saying he’s the greatest husband in the world nor will I say I am the greatest wife but I think we’re doing okay together. We compliment each other in ways that only we know how to. I guess what I’m trying to say is our differences hold us together, make us whole and keep things interesting.

Happy 2nd year Anniversary Sweetie…I love that you are the last person I talk to before I go to sleep and the first person I see when I wake up…
