50 first dates will remain one of my sweetest teenage memories. That was the phase when Adam Sandler was extremely likable and Drew Barrymore was steadily stealing our hearts with a string of charming performances. It is one of those movies which will tug your heartstrings as the two leads re-discover love again and again. I will let Lucy and Henry take over from here.


Dear Henry,

I wake up every day not knowing what the day has in store for me. Is it a never-ending stretch or a never-ending happily ever after? I choose to embrace the latter.  Life has given me that rare chance of filling the blank spaces with traces of love each and every day.  I don’t have to yearn for surprises and sweet nothings. Every day is a surprise, a new adventure filled with the abundance of love.

Every day is a fresh start and a brand new attempt at re-writing our love story in a million different ways. I often wonder why you chose to hold on to me for eternity despite the fact that you have to start from the scratch every single day but then the heart seldom seeks a reason to hold on to love. 

I seldom have to worry about what my life has in store for us in the long run. For us, future is a myth.  It’s always one day at a time as we sprinkle our lives with doses of love.  I have chosen to embrace the surprises that life has in store for us between sunrise and sunset.

I know I will wake up tomorrow not knowing who you are but I will be waiting to make me fall in love with you again.



Dear LUCY,

Life can be bliss when love manifests itself in different ways every single day.  I wait for that moment when your eyes for the day.  It reminds me that we just finished one single chapter in a never-ending love story. The best part I won’t have to re-visit the same chapter again.

I don’t have to re-live the same day twice and life will never be an endless stretch of boredom.  Beyond the uncertainty that awaits us each day there’s a strong thread of hope that binds us together. Our kid will never yearn for love for all the different dimensions of love will unfold within her as she grows up.

Someday I won’t be there and neither will you but the traces of love that we have left behind will remain as permanent impressions for the people around us.  Let’s hold on to each other and embrace the sunshine until sunset greets us together for one final time.







It was supposed to be a one off date and I wasn’t interested until SUSAN coaxed me into giving it a shot. I had seen many like her before and the spark usually fizzles out after the initial joyride. But I decided to take the risk for I had nothing to lose. Perhaps she was THE ONE.

I am glad I took the plunge and what an exciting journey it had been so far. We had nothing in common or so I thought until I met the whole CBC Clan.  I never expected the whole family to be so warm and friendly. The best though is the varied emotions at different points of the day. You never knew how she was going to react. She surprised me day in and day out. It was supposed to be a clumsy one off date but CBC has given me 50 FIRST DATES.

The CBC Family is a lovely ensemble with a lovely assortment of characters – the perfect star cast with a lovely lead- the baton had been passed on but the spirit remains the same.

Dear CBC we are meant to be so never have second thoughts about our relationship. Cheers to many more years of togetherness.  Hearty Christmas and New Year wishes to the entire CBC clan.  

A big fat thank you for being the most wonderful part of my life in 2015.

Yours Truly,

With love.
