If my post "A Belated 30th Anniversary Present'' was a post written in jest and was meant as a swipe at the administrators of the country's billions, this post today is the real deal.

Yes, dear readers, today marks a milestone in my life, the life of a ordinary Malaysian teacher; the life of a typical Malaysian, but today makes this very ordinary Malaysian feel a little bit special. Alhamdulillah.

Exactly today 30 years ago I married my darling wife. Yes, 30 blissful years have passed and along with them we were responsible to add 3 new citizens to this country. I could say that I am lucky to not have many memories that I would rather forget. Alhamdulillah.

She is amazing really and I owe her a lot for 30 years of sheer joy. It's experiencing 30 years like this that makes me thank ALLAH I was born. Alhamdulillah.

Looking back over the years surely the birth of my 3 lovely angels were the highlight of my life followed of course by the countless days hours of sheer ecstatic joy. Alhamdulillah.

We have been a close knit family ever since we were a family. We still congregate on my bed in my little cosy bedroom, all the 5 of us, and tell stories, share experiences, make fun of each other, and I being the so-called Patriarch, am not spared. Alhamdulillah.

Though my children are all adults now, we still go out together a lot. Of course they have their own life to lead and I give them all the freedom to make their own decisions and to learn from their own mistakes which I am happy to say are not many and very far in between. Alhamdulillah.

Thank you ALLAH for blessing me with this wonderful woman for a wife and my 3 lovely babies. I must have done something good in life to deserve such a wonderful blessing from you. Alhamdulillah.

How I wished that I could see 30 more years of blissful life with her and them. InsyaAllah.

A marriage is an opportunity to become a better person. From a Hindu perspective, it is also an opportunity to resolve old issues. Getting a good spouse is a blessing. But making the relationship work is a duty.

Successful relationships are no accident. One or both partners have put in a lot of effort. The reward, you have earned.

Praise be to Allah for having given you the strength.

Yes, I agree, a successful marriage is 90 percent perspiration (ahem ahem) and 10 percent inspiration.

Chegu, what a from-the-heart tribute to your wife in particular and your babies in general. Would you accept it when I say it is all because of who did the RIGHT thing RIGHT THE FIRST all the time. Give your wife and kids a hug for me when you meet next in your cozy bedroom.
