She is an executive editor and presenter with Channel News Asia. He is not only an advocate and solicitor, but a partner as well at Tito Isaac & Co. LLP. They first met in 2012 in a carpark and then again at a party. Neither knew at the time that they were destined to become husband and wife in August. She tells us:

wedding albums glenda justin.jpg“Not long after we started dating, I knew I wanted to grow old with this man, and to share my happiness and sorrow with him,” Glenda says. 
 

“Justin proposed three times. Twice at home, and the last time in Bali. I said yes to all three!

Only family was present when we first exchanged vows. This was back in July 2014. It was a Peranakan affair to honour my heritage. It was wonderful to see the bibiks and babas in traditional sarong kebayas and batik shirts.

For our wedding, we wanted to hold everything on the same day. The tea ceremony and lunch were more traditional, which made our older relatives happy. The dinner was held at a restaurant with a colonial setting. During dinner, someone read E.E. Cummings’s poem I Carry Your Heart With Me, which perfectly reflected our feelings for each other.

After we did the usual yum seng, where you have to toast three times for wealth, health and fertility, Justin got our guests to toast to fertility once more. My husband is not shy about expressing his emotions.

Justin literally swept me off my feet after the gatecrashing ceremony. He looked very handsome when he entered my bedroom, and I was so glad I was to be married to him. I keep the wedding photo of my late parents by the bed, and I can only hope that my marriage will be as blissful.

The wedding was fun but exhausting. I was so tired and hungry. I didn’t get to eat because we were busy entertaining our guests. Still, I would do this all again in a heartbeat!”
