Fourth Encounter

The 60th Catholic Engaged Encounter Weekend was held at the Marian Formation Centre in Ipoh from 12-14 May 2006. We were on the presenting team with Fr. Ben Nieukey, and Chris and Lina Baptist. Nine couples participated in this weekend. This is our fourth time presenting, and the first time on an 'outreach' weekend, i.e. away from Penang.

Our 2nd Anniversary

We celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary on 1 May 2006.

The morning saw us at St Anne's Church in Bukit Mertajam for the concluding sessions of the Pre-Convention for the Laity (Diocese of Penang) Towards the 3rd Peninsular Malaysia Pastoral Convention.

In the evening, our anniversary celebrations began. Firstly, we subjected ourselves to some pampering at Apsara Spa in Tanjong Tokong. We had a massage, body scrub (here's where things got rough, to exfoliate the skin), and milk bath (complete with flower petals and lavender essential oils... must have taken many goats to provide all the milk). Ahhh...

Next, we headed to Ingolf's Kneipe (Tanjong Bungah outlet) for our anniversary dinner. Incidentally, we celebrated our 1st anniversary at Ingolf's too, but at their Batu Feringghi outlet. We had the minced pork and chicken klopse, Hawaiian-style grilled pork and chicken, and Hungarian goulash.

After dinner, we headed home for the most important event. We lit our unity candle and said an anniversary prayer together.
