    I usually try to stick to more business related posts on my blog, however this time I wanted to make an exception.

    On July 16th 2009, I got married to Leona Chen and experienced an unforgettable day.  Leona simply looked absolutely stunning. It is actually amazing how quick the actual ceremony and reception passed by without either Leona or myself noticing it.  It must have been all the tension and preparation prior to the wedding, as well as the fact that we had so many guests visit from overseas.  Both Leona and I would like to thank all that were able to attend and share this special day with us.  It was fantastic to see so many friends fly huge distances to attend our wedding, especially considering the economic times we are all experiencing.  All of you made this day a special one.

    Special thanks go to Sara for being Leona’s bridesmaid, as well as to my best man Karim.  Both of you were great.

    Thank you also to all for the gifts and best wishes.
