Words for Mentees (4): Choosing partner and starting a family

Yin and Yang. Life has to be balanced. Don’t spend all your efforts chasing career achievements and leaving no time for personal enjoyment. Most people find it more fulfilling to share their lives with a partner and family. Some of my single friends, even though they advanced highly at work can’t help but feel lonely and discontent if they are not settled in a relationship. Somehow the society still has a stigma for middle aged unmarried working women; success is no longer measured by how many points you get at DSE, but how happy you are with your family.

Take your time to start dating and finding the right partner. Very often many people meet their other halves at school. St. Mary’s doesn’t provide the chance of meeting boy friends at school, so keep your eyes out at universities! Find someone who has a sense of humour to laugh with you, who can cheer you up when you feel down, who can see the best in you and bring the best out of you, who share your dream and grow with you. Once you find Mr. Right, plan to start a family. There is a time and place for everything. Prioritise well and don’t wait till you are 50 years to bear a baby from your frozen eggs!

  12. 證婚律師賣廣告 有次去一間小店吃晚飯,環境擠迫,張張枱排得密密麻麻。一坐下來,就聽到坐在旁邊的兩個女仔在討論找證婚律師。靈機一觸,考慮是否應該把握機會派咭片給她們。雖然我一向不怕羞,但都覺得無端端向她們介紹自己好odd,而且好似顯得我在偷聽她們談話,不太專業和没禮貎,最終還是没有主動和她們交談。可能就此錯失了生意機會! 曾經有個website叫我在網上賣廣告,我才知道原來價錢都幾相宜,至於效果因為未試過就大不清楚,但照計都應該不難回本。不過,我還是拒絶了那個sales。 我不想刻意做宣傳,因為自己一個人做證婚,又没有同人合作,不像律師樓或證婚公司,没有時間就介紹給其他律師。結婚旺季中的好日子,尤其是星期六日,基本上都會收到很多重複時間的queries,撞了時間我就唯有推掉。無論我賣幾多廣告,有幾多人找我,我都做不來,不會increase revenue。 不賣廣告,能相遇上的就要靠緣份。現在找我證婚的新人多是朋友和“幫襯”過我的人介紹,或是在internet search 找到我的blog。最近有個失去聯絡的舊同事在網上forum發現我個名,email 我。雖然撞了時間,去不了她的wedding,但這樣reconnect with people,比起在Facebook friends of friends 地連起來,更有意思。...

Flamenco wedding 最近為一對結他敎師和醫生見證婚禮,好一對俊男美女。他們透過Flamenco結識,pre-wedding去西班牙, 映pre-wedding photo靚到不得了。結他老師,婚禮有live music不在話下,新娘進場時奏cello and西班牙percussion的Canon in D,優美浪漫!更動人是wedding performance,新娘表演Flamenco舞,新郎結他伴奏。水準超卓,合拍無比,完美的配合! 新郎的婚後感想是wedding performance後感覺很强烈,覺得遇上Flamenco是他人生最幸福的事之一。我就話,能透過Flamenco遇上老婆,是最最最幸福的事。的確,找到有共同興趣的老婆,更勝娶得靚女或醫生。 記得我結婚時打電話邀請個很久没聯絡的舊同學去婚禮,她好奇問我未婚夫的背景,然後問,他會玩樂器嗎?啊,她一問,提醒起曾經我的夢中情人是有藝術氣質會玩音樂的型男,連我自己都忘記了。 我告訴老公my dream lover is someone who can play music,...
