On one peaceful and nice Thursday, I celebrated my birthday quietly. It is my personal habit not to make it a bid deal and prefer to act as usual. Every thing goes well. Off course my wife and kids and immediate family members wished happy birthday to me directly and also via telephone, SMS and whatsapp.
I worked as usual, sometimes sleepy, sometimes not that productive. At the end of the day (after work), we went home.
My wife will always enter the house first because she wants to grab Zara. I will follow her closely later because I need to grab the bags and other stuffs from our new Toyota Alphard. Sometimes I will wipe the new car before entering the house…haha…
Then as I entered the house, I was caught by surprize as everyone in the house shouted “Happy Birthday” simultaneously. Wow…this is really a surprise.
There is a square shape with various fruits on top of it. You can see it in the picture. The fruits are those that I liked such as strawberries, grapes, kiwi, mango etc. Then my other half gave me a package containing a nice cool mug as a present and a birthday card. Ikhwan, my son also handed over a personal home crafted birthday card and gave me a set of mechanical pencil as a present.
I am so touched, pleased and surprised at the same time. I think this is the first time such surprised have been set up to me. That’s fine as long as it is not a prank set up…haha
Normally we’ll have a nice lunch or dinner. However, that event will be delayed and combine with other special occasions which have lined up in April – May – June.
