Some of you may know that I’m married to @Sheylara. Yes, she is THAT lucky.

It’s been a blissful 85 days since our tiny little ceremony in Singapore.

We’ve always said we’d have a nice UK wedding this year (June 14) for all our UK friends and family, and anyone who can be bothered to make the trip over from Singapore. But due to various reasons (check her www.sheylara.com blog for details), we are now unsure whether to go ahead with it or not.

It mainly comes down to money and stress.

The money would be VERY useful for our new house purchase in the next few months (in UK no such thing as ang paos, so wedding gifts are 100% non-deductable from cost), and also stress (mainly for Sheylara), which may potentially outweigh the enjoyment of the day. We are already married after all.

The problem is we cannot decide. And what do you do when you cannot decide something?

That's right, you flip a coin.

So that’s what we’re going to do tonight.

Exciting, huh?

.................................................

By the way, most of my fans are probably fast asleep by now (it's 1am on the other side of the planet) so will not be able to enjoy the build up to the coin toss. I guess I should've really posted this this morning.

...............................

Just been caught practicing coin tossing and accused of cheating! Like wtf. How is that cheating?
I was just trying to see which side is more favourable....

..................................

Gonna happen within the next hour or so. We both keep putting it off lol

Here's the coin we're gonna use

It's a 50 pence coin. We're going to blow it on something extravagant to celebrate the result.

...............................

Shit. Here we go...

So heads equals YES.
Tails is NO.

Because we are too chicken to do it on one toss, we changed out minds and decided to do it best of 10.

First throw

Heads.
YES 1-0 NO

Tails
HEADS 1-1 TAILS

Tails.

HEADS 1-2 TAILS

Heads

HEADS 2-2 TAILS

Heads.

YES 3-2 NO

So halfway through and YES is in the lead by one.

Heads!

YES 4-2 NO

Tails

YES 4-3 No

Tails!

YES 4-4 NO

NO caught back up!

Heads!

YES 5-4 NO

So this could be it. One more heads and wedding bells are a ringin'!

DOH!

YES 5-5 NO

So it really does come down to 1 throw. Geez, stupid waste of 10 mins.

Ok, so here we go.

Final throw.

Heads we are having a wedding. Tails we're getting a nicer home.
