One Year Older

As certain as day following by night, it was once again my turn to become one year older – I turned 29 last Sunday. For me, this year birthday’s definitely a special one which I’ll never forget.

We planned to have dinner at TGIF, but unfortunately Sarah was down with flu since three days ago and she vomited, twice, during her nap time. Therefore, we have to cancel the dinner and have just a walkabout at nearby mall.

On a happier note, hubby has surprised me with a gift - a gorgeous watch. It is no way near as good as the likes of Omega or Rolex but it’s already fit enough for me.

He’s so sweet that he can’t wait to present me the gift on actual day (he gave himself up six day earlier). On price tag, this is the most expensive thing that I’ve ever received; but in term of value, I always knew I already possess the most precious gift (from above) in my family.

Besides, I am overwhelmed with the birthday wishes received from friends. That means a lot to me; thank you to all of you out there.

I don't really have any wish aside from good health for me and my love ones. I just want to count my blessing, one by one; and say a little prayer for whatever God has given me so far.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Thank you for your wishes.
No leh, that's not diamonds (I wish it is diamonds, hehe). it is actually crystal.


Claire, Doreen:
Thanks. I love the watch too.

Thanks for your wishes.
Is true Lynette, the heart that counts. I would be happy too if my husband just wish me without gift.

Actually I have no idea at all about branded watches, coz I never had one, hehe.
So I really surprised that my husband bought me one:-)
Thanks for your wishes.

Thank you for your birthday song. You are so sweet for singing it to me. :-)
Is it? James also like that? But aren't they sweet by giving us the surprise and giving us the gift earlier. Hehe.
Guess what, this year I did not have a cake for myself. Hehe. Actually I am not a big fans of cakes:-)
Sarah is getting so much better now. Her flu is less runny now.
She vomitted all her pan mee and bread that she had on the morning. Maybe the food is not digested well or she just not feeling well that day, so it makes her feel geli of any food she ate.

CH Voon: Thanks!
