This posting is a Valentine's Day Special 💖💝💘
There are more than 300 'likes' on Mr *John Cher's Facebook page when he posted his wedding pictures with beautiful Betsy. The couple looks so refreshingly charming and I asked if he could write his experience for this blog. As usual, he obliged.
Thanks again John and Betsy. And a Happy 41st Wedding Anniversary to both.
The Wedding (La Novia) by Julie Rogers. Video from Chen Daniel.
In 1969 I went to McGRAW-HILL F.E.P. for the first time for a job interview. This 19-year-old simpleton from U.S.A. (Upper Serangoon Area) was completely blown away by the size of this factory/office.
The landscaped garden in the centre of the complex complete with cascades, fish ponds and the works looked exactly like a 5-star hotel. I got the job! What I didn't know then was that within the parameters of this beautiful gigantic workplace with hundreds of employees, was my future wife!
Baby Face by Bobby Darin. Video from:
I think it took about an hour and then finally the doorbell rang. When I opened the door I nearly fainted. There were 3 waiters with 2 carts with 12 beautiful trays of sandwiches !! It cost about S$150. That was 41 years ago! And $150 could have been dinner for about 10 people. OMG!!!
Through the years with Mr and Mrs John Cher from the U.S.A. (Upper Serangoon Area).😉
