Singapore Ironman celebrates 25th Wedding Anniversary - Weekend Snapshot #18




Singapore Ironman Lim Nghee Huat (Chairman of Mountbatten CCC and MediaCorp Editor, Current Affairs) and his lovely wife, Deborah celebrates their 25th Wedding Anniversary today.

Happy 25th Anniversary Nghee Huat and Deborah!!

Mr Lim Nghee Huat, now in his fifties, is also known as the super-marathon man. Age is no obstacle for Mr Lim. A running champion since 1972, he set two national records when he ran 168km round the island to help raise $168,000 for NTU's Endowment Fund.

He represented Singapore in the gruelling Ironman World Championship in Hawaii in 1989, where he was the fastest finisher from Asia outside Japan. And on 20th July 2007, he successfully conquered the 217km Death Valley Challenge in 51.49 hours, making him and his running partner, Mr Yong Yuen Cheng, the only two people from South-east Asia to overcome Death Valley!

Having only known the couple for only a few months, I was honoured to be invited to their anniversary dinner. I think both he and his wife have since regretted asking me. hahaha.....

This is what I did at their dinner party.........., in front of their family, VIPs, friends, colleagues and church members!



It is common knowledge that I love to play pranks, especially at my friends' weddings or anniversaries.
Note : If I regard someone as a friend, even if he or she doesn't invite me, I'll gatecrash. hehehe..... *alarm bells ringing*

I told my son Jaymes, I'll make sure his wedding will be a very memorable one for him. He replied, "I will elope."

We will see. hahaha........

  11. You are so funny. Cool shots of the happy couple and your prank one is a riot. I bet if your son tries to elope you'll track them down, at least by the honeymoon when they least expect it.
