Sunny Days: An Offbeat Meeting at the Toa Payoh Public Library

Sunny Days: An Offbeat Meeting at the Toa Payoh Public Library

Finding sentimental moments was one of the things I was looking forward very much to when I embarked as a team member of SG Snaps, and yet, it seemed serendipitous that we should have had a visitor who turned out the be one of the most sentimental men I have ever met. He graced the team with both his sunshine and his stories.

On day two at our booth, Uncle Sunny, 64, brought two very special albums containing greetings cards that he fatefully gave to his wife, Jessie, 60, every year for her birthdays and for their anniversaries. The giving is a mutual affair and Uncle Sunny stressed to me the importance of giving credit to this wife in this exchange.

The couple have been married for 37 years and as the years passed, Uncle Sunny’s gesture of romance never waived one bit. People express their love in many different ways and taking photographs of loved ones is just one form of expression. Uncle Sunny’s commitment in giving his wife greeting cards is another. “This is how I can be remembered by,” Uncle Sunny told me. It made me think about what we leave behind and how we remember precious moments.
