i arrived in Singapore last night and probably won’t be back to Jakarta until next year… christmas, new year and wedding in Singapore… woohoo!
many people asked why i get married in Singapore, instead of in Indonesia. Ari and i are Indonesian afterall. well, in Indonesia, mixed-religion marriage is against the law. i don’t know exactly when the law is taken into effect, but it was definitely after i was born, since my parents could get married in Indonesia even though my dad is muslim and my mom is christian.
anyways, i’m all excited. it’s been over three years that we’ve planned to get married. the wedding band is done. last night, ari and i practice inserting the ring to each other’s fingers. ari’s knuckles are big, so he needs to rub some vaseline onto his ring finger to get the band through. even mine is sorta tight… it was a pain to take them off… (although the lady in the jewelry store said that tight is good. we’re not supposed to take ’em off anyway, right?). as long as we don’t gain weight in the next few weeks, it should be fine.
ps: just found out via my tracker that the voting for ABA 2004 has started. and one of my favorite weblogs is listed there, as well. uhh, i’m torn… should i vote for myself (heh), or should i vote for him?
