    Wow, she's getting married after all... was my classmate during my varsity years at NUS.
    Good for her, I think the passage of time has finally made her lower her lofty standards with regards to relationships. Hope she can find happiness and marital bliss.

    Congrats to her!

    Well, personally if I'm above 40 and single I think better to remain as it is, mainly :

    -- How old are you going to have kids? at 45? also fertility rate is low then and high risk for
    the woman.
    -- By then your stamina is not there to keep up to carry and run with your kids.
    -- When your kids reach 10 years old and you'll be close to 50 then and in not time
    to retire soon (if lucky your campany can keep you till 85 but again can you gaurantee
    that you can live that long and healthy?)
    -- If I'm rich, then half of my assset will go to my partner and Singapore law protects very
    much for the ladies (so anything unforeseen, you'll be losing end, god bless)
    -- Economy issue...if kena retrench at the age 40 onwards, it is not easy to get a job
    which you used to get paid. So can you affort to keep up a family then?
    If still single then no worry.
    -- and many more............

    If you're an unmarried woman don't give up hope so soon.

    There are many very eligible photographers here and they come with expensive gear too.

    very uncalled for remark. If you can be so totally mean about a women u only known from articles she wrote, i really shudder to image what goes around in your head about people you known. Same goes to all those crappy remarks from Sion and all...

    She is 46. Not that young anymore, yeah, but what's wrong with getting married at that age? It's a new centuary for god sake but you seemed to be an antique with a sever dose of stigmatisation. We have pple re-marrying when they are in their 60s-70s...We have maggie cheung who is 40+ and dying to get married, we have lin chin hisa marrying at 40.

    go get a life instead of sniggering at pple.

    Congrats to her! Although I hardly read her columns, am not a fan also. But meeting the one you love & getting married (at whatever age) is always a good thing to bless!

    Bro Sion,

    My views clearly on the guy side.............
    So guys, perhaps be wise and can spend more $$ on your equipment instead. LOL

    That's so meaningful from so many different perspectives... wide angle to macro!

    Who's she to appear on the paper that she's getting married? Next time any t,d,h getting married also can be news liao.

    Congratulations to Sumiko and groom.

    There is no "right" age as to when to tie the knots esp when you are in your 40s. Just let nature takes its path and let your heart flow and feel the love for each other, when two hearts meet. What matters is when in your golden years you have each others' company, instead of being lonely and all alone.

    GOD bless you both.
    With Metta

    Woah, u think a lot ....
    i only think that if i married over 33, i will not wan to have kids just in case ID then poor thing for them too.
    if over 40 i just wan to have a partner .... to be with ... stay together .. no paper bonding ...
    anyway these are thoughts only.

    fate comes what can u do to go against it?

    Anyway i think all the best to sumiko though ... i like her columns.

    LIFE is like Photography. You use the Negatives to develop. The Pictures to prove the beauty.

    but what if we just only interested in their gears and not them?

    I rarely read ST, but sometimes I stumble in her articles on the net. Witty, smart and cool lady! . Wish her all the best!
