I was watching the telemovie that was locally made on Father's day. In it, Henry asked Jason this question: "What was your most memorable moment in your life?" Jason replied: "The day my father gave me a model air-plane. He'd spent days making that model. And it was the most perfect model air-plane I have ever seen. The colors were perfect. The details were perfect!" Heh heh heh... makes me think back on the days that I find most memorable. The first thing that came to mind was the day my wife said yes to me when I first asked if she would be my girlfriend. Back then, I told her that I would be the luckiest man on earth. Till today, I still feel that way! How about you? What is the most memorable moment in your life?

I have a few and cant really pick one over the other. The day me and my hubby got married, the days our kids and grandbabies were born. The day that the courts gave us guardianship of our grandbaby so that we no longer had to worry about her being taken care of. The day that my husband asked me to remarry him and of the course the day we got remarried and now it is our trips we take once a year. Yep I have a lot of memorable GREAT AWESOME DAYS!

Woah~~~! You are by far the youngest grandma I have come across to date! When did you get married? At your age, with a family and grandkids, the whole world is your oyster for the picking! If I were to have kids now, at your age, my kids would only be in high school! Wow~~! *admiration*

Sorry it took so long to respond. We were 16 and 18 when we got married. Some didnt think we would last but here we are and we still love each other and I think more then when we were young as all these experiences have made us closer. There is nothing like watching your grandbabies being born. We are coming up on number 11 this September. 12 if you count the one that we have!

number 11 as in the number 11th grand child?!? And the one you have? I am confused! Wow! You got married at 16? At that age, I was still dreaming and wondering about who my significant other would be!

I think the most memorable moment of my life right now, is telling the gal i loved that, i'm giving up on her, so that she can carry on the relationship with the person she really loved.. Though sad, but it's a fact that i'm the 3rd party.. I have no choice but to let her go because i dun wanna see her unhappy and be stuck in between me and her bf then.. Though it's nothing to be proud about, but that's one moment in life, whereby i truly feel all the happiness and sadness within of me, in just a couple of months, for the very few seconds..

That is very noble of you to bow out like that. And it sure feels good to know that the person you love is all happy and blissed right? I know that feeling! I am sure you have found yourself a better partner now right?

Actually in a way, yes, if she did not let me know that she happened to fall for me at the same time, before i let her go.. lol =D But too bad, she broke up with her bf in the end, only to end up with another guy about a year later.. However, i'm still happy for her, because if she's not meant for me, we will still break up sooner or later, if she had chosen me at that time ^_^ SO instead of dragging the thing, why not end it in the sweetest way??

Well, the first one that comes to mind is usually the one we remember the most first. Then the others will follow. That is how I chose my one most memorable moment. And to date, it is still the same one. I have plenty of other memorable moments. But everytime I think about them, the one I described is the first one that came to mind! So what's yours?

Start to peack out my words to my girlfriend,is really a memerable,the first love especially.Anyway,we are often shocked by our life experience.That is all the most ones,i think.If they are compared to each other,no one can pop up lonely.For instance,when it comes to your friends circle,love circle,or work circle,different answers will appear.So a certain circle should be designed when it come to the solo most.Aha.Thanks!

Hey, Well I have never really had some memorable moments in my life. But I think that even spending time in front of the computer is quite memorable, they don't just have to be big events in your life. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

hmm there are a lot of memorable moments in my life. i'd be hard pressed to pick the most. there's the times when i got my school results. my father has always scared me by saying that he has got friends who worked in MOE and i had failed my PSLE / 'O' levels. turn out i did pretty not bad in these examinations. there was also the time when i received my first salary working part time before school. there is also the time that i first heard that i got a promotion. all these are so memorable that it's really difficult, if not impossible, to pick the most. after walking down memory lane, i think i've decided on the most memorable moment. it will be the moment when i signed on the dotted line to 'purchase' my current home. it is the biggest expenditure in my entire life and also signifies my adulthood to my parents. finally i am able to 'own' a place and have my parents live with me. that will be the proudest moment of my life till now.

Oh yeah... now that you reminded me. I was really proud to received the deed to my current home as well. And boy was that day a day of mixed feelings! I was overjoyed that I can finally own a home with my wife. I was also sad to see my CPF and savings of a few years all wiped out to pay for that home. I was excited to be embarking on the renovations that I have painstakingly planned with my wife. Going over details and designs and cost counting. Heh heh heh... that was a memorable day for me too!

For me the most memorable moment is the day when I was caught by my senior for a dictionary theft.Even now,over 15 years passed,I can remember his face though I only see him for one time.

ha ha ha ha ha... getting caught for stealing? Wouldn't that make it the worst day of your life? But you do have a point. A memorable event may not necessarily be a happy one. Heh heh... so, did you get punished very severely for that theft? Say... why you need to steal a dictionary anyways? What is so special about that dictionary?

I have to say that the most memorable moment for me would be the day of my daughters birth. I had waited for what seemed like forever for here to be here. Finally I was able to hole her in my arms and kiss her and look into her eyes and speak to her. For me that was and will be the most memorable day of my life.

I am sure that is! To touch and to hold your baby. To really see and feel her in your arms outside of you. I can only imagine how overwhelming that would have felt. Thanks for sharing Autumnrose2008!

The most memorable moment of my life was when me and my other sibling was already housed under the same roof. When we were young we've been living in different houses of our different relatives. We belong to a broken home family. When my elder sister happened to work abroad she sent money for us to find a house or apartment for rent. That's when we were able to live together under the same house.

Most memorable moment in my life is when i went to Malaysia with my mother. My brother invited me to visit him and to accompany my mother since she is senior citizen already. We stay there for 2 weeks and we eat only seafoods, pork is not allowed to be eaten in that country and that is the first time that in 2 weeks no pork. It help my diet and one hour swimming makes me lose weights faster.

I would have to say its between when I first found out I was pregnant or when my son was born and placed on my stomach. Seeing your child for the first time is very emotional and you can never forget every detail.

My most memorable moment would be when I gave birth to my son. That was the greatest time of my life. I never imagined giving birth at a young age and loved the experience back then. Now as I see him talking and going to school, it truly was the most memorable day when he was born.

The birth of my children are definitely the most memorable event in my life. I've never has sooo much emotions at once. It was truly a blessing. Actually, I must say the day my husband and I exchanged vows was quite memorable as well...It was so special...Oh goodness I just thought of another one, my baptism was also a very important memorable event. Hmmm..I guess I have a lot of memorable events...

Everyday is a memorable day for me. I think that I seem to make it so. I used to be miserable most days and I suspect that I was the one to blame for those. Cheers!!!!

So sweet for your most memorable moment in your life. For me, i have few memorable moment in my life, the most memorable one is when i got an alergy last time and my father brought me to clinic. While waiting for the doctor at the clinic,i felt so cold, and luckily my father hold my hand and gave me some warm. I feel that so warm and happy and really hope that the time can stop at that moment.

Hi Ahgong, That's very sweet of you. I guess if your girlfriend knows that, she will be very happy! The most memorable moment in my life? Then i would say when my ex-boyfriend gave me a surprise that he put one ring in his mouth without letting me know, then he kissed me, then i felt something in my month, i took it out, it was a ring! I am so happy! But for some reason, we can be together anymore, we are good friends now. I wish him all the best!

Oh yes, I do let her know. In fact, she is now my wife. The first face I see in the morning when I open my eyes. And the last face I see in the day when I go to bed! Heh heh...

wow ,together you and your wife made a handsome couple ! For I haven't finish my life ,I can't imagine the most memorable moment in my life .hhaha.To be honest ,to call it today to me ,the most memorable moment is when I fell in love with somebody .At this moment ,I couldn't believe my own eyes .I have never dreamed such romantic things would happen to me in the real life .I thought it is just a coincidence .But the fact told me I was totally wrong .This feeling is just between him and i .For we are the students ,we were having no much time to have romance .For the difference between him and i ,we were separated for two years .Even he knewhat I mean after the GME , we lost touch then .But now he finish his senior school , I add his QQ .I mean i wait for him for two years .I don't know wheather he is the boy as used to be .I mean if he still beloved me as the first time he fell in love with me .DO the same feeling still exist ? I believe so .And strongly think he is the only one I want to look for .
