Hello balasri! It's been too long since we finally met here. My memorable occassion in life that I attended to is when my classmate brought me to her hometown. It was actually valentines day and that we're watching js prom in higschool. I just love it because everyone are very friendly towards me and accepted me as their friend eventhough I was still a stranger there.

Star on good times  - My eyes were teared up.
I was sitting home and feeling bored. I have a friend ring the bell and ask if I want to go to church tonight. I said no I will stay home. She got me to go anyway that night. Now she forgot to tell me that my favorite star was there. See I watch good times daily. I love JJ and the crew. I love my picture and my autographed book she gave me.

I attended my wedding and the births of my kids those were pretty memorable. I didn't attend my college graduation, but I do remember not going. I guess those would be the biggest events of my life and I am glad that I was there for all of them. Didn't have much choice with the wedding.

Good topic! As far as I remember, I can only recall some movies that I acompanied reluctantly and found them very entertaining.This was a surprise.If it were some occasion and it was attended reluctantly, it did not give me any such pleasant surprises.At least not , memorable and enjoyable as you have worded it..The maximum could have been that it was not as intolerable and horribly boring/unpleasant as I expected it to have been. Moreover, when we are forced to attend reluctantly, we are mentally prepared to get what is coming. So, the boredom may reduce as a cause of a prepared mindset.That is all.But , you have not elaborated on your experience! So, what is your experience? Obviously, it seems , you have been dragged to attend some function against your will and you have not found it as unpleasant as you expected it to be.Or am I guessing wrong?

My discussion is the result of a music program I attended last night very reluctantly. It was a singer who has been in the field for more than forty years. I was crazy once but lost interest later. I was so out of place in the show but as he started to sing I was taken back to the days when I was crazy of him. The strange fact is that this performer has still got the magic in his voice. It was a memorable night indeed and I enjoyed every moment of it. It was quite unexpected. "Spread a smile"

You know what, I am reluctant to participate in any social occasions but the times when I had to attend for some reasons or the other, I enjoyed like anything! actually, I am hesitant before every occasions but trust me they are not that bad. And if I have to single out one occasion, I would say it would be the condolence memorial of someone very close. I just loved the way she was being remembered in fun and fond memories. We shared the secret stories with her parents and her parents told us about their fond times. It felt good for it did not had the cliched grievances, which are mostly fake and make belief pathos. We remembered her in pathos and love and still remember the lovely poignance that we were left with!

Yes... I'm not a great lover of wedding ceremonies, but my Godson got married a year and a half ago. He's not a part of my family and I didn't really fancy going, but the day and evening turned out to be really enjoyable and eventful in many ways, right down to meeting up with old school chums. Brightest Blessings, my friend.

Certain things tend to bring us unexpected pleasures like this that make them double fold.

It was a community dance for adult individuals with autism and mental retardation. It wasn't really reluctance but hesitation as it was my first time to go and I did not know if I was ready. As you described it, it was one of the most memorable and enjoyable events I have cherished. Gave me a new insight into life.

It was a School Alumni association get together. I had not attended any of them previously. After a lot of coercing by one of my friends i decided to attend. The reluctance was mainly because i was under the impression that very few known faces would be there and many of them would not remember me. To my utter surprise, there were 9-10 of my classmates, half of whom i had not seen for a very long time. And each and every one of them remebered and were very glad to see me. This happened a feew years ago and i fondly cherish those moments Bala.

Can't think of a thing. I enjoyed every event that i went to, and I knew I would, as soon as I was invited. It's always fun to get together with people, and have a good time with the ones we love. An interesting question. Thanks for asking. Have a good day.
