Yesterday, I had an early celebration with my Mum, Brother and Sister-In-Law. Dad is at work while my sister didn’t came over as she had to take care of her sons.
You may find me weird but I do not like people to sing me the Birthday song.
Whenever this happen, I would cringe and freak out, wishing it would quickly end.
So, yesterday, my Mum, brother and sis-in-law just sang me the last sentence of the Birthday song and I proceeded with the cake cutting.
After having the cake, everyone just went back to doing what they were doing and that, is my Birthday celebration in five minutes.
As you can
see, my Birthday is quite
In my family, we do not have the habit to celebrate
birthdays because everyone is busy with work.
When we were kids, the adults were busy making ends meet so
there is no time to celebrate and no spare cash for presents, much less a party.
we grew up, the ‘tradition’ sort of continues.
most we will do is to have a meal together and that is it.
guess, that is the reason why I’m so paranoid of having people singing me the
Birthday song because I didn’t know how to react with me being in the limelight.
for my Birthday this year, we didn’t even have a meal together because
everyone were still busy with work.
Today, I just spend the day celebrating
with me, myself and I.
And here’s me wishing I a Happy Birthday!
Happy Birthday, Birthday Party, dead-cockroach, presents
I talk to him when I’m lonesome like;
And I’m sure he understands.
When he looks at me so attentively,
And gently licks my hands;
Then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes,
But I never say naught thereat.
For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes,
But never a friend like that.

Yesterday was Farzanah‘s birthday BBQ celebration at Pasir Ris so I meet Jeffrey at Tampines Mall to get her present. The moment I stepped out from the MRT Station, the sheer amount of human traffic thronging the streets scared me! It’s people mountain people sea literally!
We braved the torrents and made our way safely into the mall opposite but only to be greeted with more people inside! We went to a couple of shops but couldn’t made up our minds on what to buy. Some of the shops were so crowded I didn’t even dared to enter!
We went up and down and eventually decided on a Forever Friends cushion.
After getting the present, there was still alot of time left to the BBQ. As I still hadn’t taken my breakfast, we went over to the Pasar Malam beside the mall to prowl for food. We had the Japanese Teppanyaki Pizza and it was very, very nice! I loved the veggie especially and that flaky stuff on top mixed with the mayo and BBQ sauce!
After our stomachs were filled, we went to White Sands to pass our time. Luckily, White Sands wasn’t as crowded as Tampines Mall which is a relief!
We walked a few rounds but there was nothing much to see. We went to the game shop to look at the PSP and NDS Lite. Then, we went to inspect the food on people’s table at Wan Chai.
We intend to proceed to the BBQ and was already at the bus interchange but Farzanah said that the timing would be delayed as she’s still not ready with the preparations. Thus, we returned to White Sands to walk around again before ending up on the second floor to watch some fugly reindeers act innocent on the stage. (That’s when the batteries in my camera died on me)
At the same time, we waited for Peilan and Anqi to reach Pasir Ris so we could all go together.
Compare the number of people at White Sands(L) and Tampines Mall(R)?
After watching for awhile, both of them came and we finally make our way to the BBQ.
When we reached there, Farzanah and some of her friends were still preparing the food so we sat around for a while and ate marshmallows.
Luckily, she didn’t invite too many people this year so we had quite alot to eat and drink.
The Salmon Salad was very, very nice and I had never seen so much scallops at a BBQ before!
We left around 11.30pm and I managed to hop onto the last train with Peilan. After Peilan got off at Novena, one bloody drunkard vomited all over himself like a Merlion and my leg kenna-ed a bit!
By the time I reached CCK, it was already way past midnight and I’m still in time for the last LRT! I thought that I would have to walk home from the MRT Station!
Attended Sam‘s birthday at Aloha Loyang chalet last week.
We went to the beach behind the chalet and wrote on the sand but we never build sandcastles. We had fun writing until two underaged Ah Lian wannabes come disturb us and spoil all the fun. We write they also write. No creativity at all so I go do something else…
I found some pieces of broken glass while Jeffrey even found a fish hook! Don’t know who left them there? Can’t imagine if someone stepped on them, especially that hook!
I went round looking for more broken glasses and threw them into the dustbin before any accidents could happen. I wish people could be more considerate towards other people as well as to the environment.
It’s a dead baby Flowercrab. Too bad it’s too small and not much meat for us to BBQ.
Talking about the BBQ, the tama (not ‘他妈’ but the furry furry fire-starter) and the cheapo brand charcoal won’t light up at all!
We spent close to two hours setting up the pit but what we get is alot of smoke and dirty stares from the neighbors as if our chalet is on fire.
As darkness falls, other people are already happily BBQ–ing and eating but we are still trying to start a fire!
From this, I’ve come to a conclusion and that is: we make lousy arsonists.
Eventually, we managed to get the fire going. Everyone got their food and we are all happy kids once again.
