LOL... autumn you very funny
when i first got married, i tried to ask my ILs out for dinner too. cos it was a new beginning for all of us mah, start on a fresh page so we can make our own rules. i never really experienced good family bonding becos growing up my dad was always very strict so me & him always tension (altho now i luv him incredibly & he's my role model)
but when i tried to ask them out, they say no need waste money at home can eat bla bla bla.
so after that, i just didn't bother anymore.
it's a pity ? got people wanna ask you out to enjoy, dont want. now the same pple can't be bothered !
