Fiance vs

I heard stories about it, but never expereinced it first hand. Fiance and mother inlaw dont get long. Everything they do seems to get on each other nerv. Most of the time it's about emotional and money. I'm stucked in the middle getting all the blame, I'm cool with it and accepts all responsibility. Afterall, I want things to run smooth in the house.

She been persuading me to move as far away as possible from my parents, say Bankstown. It's a good suburb with a small Vietnamese community. It is also closer to her Mum, brother and sister. This means I go go away on assignment for months and she can stay with her biological mother.

I on the other hand have a grudge against her brother, its not what he did, its what he dont do. For someone of his age he should be more responsible towards his family and the people around him. When I started dating her, he came to me to borrow money to fund his gambling habbits, its not a good first impression. Overtime, I learnt to accept people for who they are.

First day of 2008

I wish every a happy New Year! Always remember for 2008... Life is short break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never reget anything that make you smile :) On the first day of 2008, I spent the day chilling out with the boys - Vincent, Jeff Thao, with their family at Palm Beach. It was the first time I get to play in the sun and near the water in many months. Anh Thu doesnt like to play in the sun for fear of a tan. She banned me from playing any adventure sports because it's dangerous, what if I had a serious accident? Who will look after me? HER!

Parking and traffic fines has dropped to zero.

She doesnt like me to express my thoughts through weblog anymore (I still do, I dont dont publish them :)).

We has ups and downs like any other relationship. She is my life-long companion.

Happier when life was simple

The more money, the more problem we have. I was happier when life was simple, small income and freedom to play adventure sport.
