MARRIED LIFE: How will you go about your marriage?
Cecil Loyalty, Honesty, Faith in God, Respect for each other, Good communication and Love. :) Andrew For me God and religion is one of the most important elements of a happy marriage. These elements bind us together by being the foundation of our family. This is where our own values, morals and beliefs come from. Angelo Communication is the most basic and most effective way to go about any relationships. With proper communication, 'understanding' is established for proper handling of problems, decisions, and feelings. This also provides the marriage room for growth and also creates trust between each other.

Concrete help as a liberator
Our action intended to help the couple/family is to organize a 'bonding day' for them. After the interview, we helped Mrs. Ong prepare lunch and set the table for all of us. We also brought ingredients to make carbonara for all of us to eat later on. After we ate lunch with the Ong family, which was very fun because of all the discussions we had with them, we all went to their living room to watch a movie. We watched 'Cheaper by the dozen 2' which is a family-oriented movie. It was fun watching this movie with them with all the side comments and the laughter we had because of the film. Then, when the movie ended, we ate the carbonara which was very delicious because of Mrs.Ong's expertise in cooking italian recipes. After resting and chatting a bit with them, they taught us how to play mahjong! It was very hard playing with them but still very interesting, And as if that wasn't enough, we played team-up badminton with them at a nearby court. We played for hours because it turned out that they were really good at playing badminton but had to stop because the sun started to set. After we came back at their place, we rested and talked to them about the whole day we had with them. We really had fun bonding with the family and thanked them for allowing us to spend the day with them.
