To people who don’t know me close-knitly, you might not know what a birthday freak I am. And for those that have been in my circle of life for years now, you would pretty much know my enthusiasm towards a day dates 22nd October each year. But you may don’t understand why, I’ll fill you in on the whys..
Ever since I was one (of coz la tak ingat kan), my parent never missed celebrating my birthday (and every other siblings as well) every passing year. My parent will ask me a MONTH before my birthday what kind of cake I want (numbered, round, square, tiered), what colour, what flavour, what gift I wish for, who will be on my guest list, what dishes I want on my party etc. I was privileged to have all that and with that kind of upbringing, birthdays have always been a special part of my life, not only my birthday but other people surrounds me. And sometimes I just don’t understand why people don’t bother to celebrate birthdays. Celebrating doesn’t mean throwing big parties, but what matters is being surrounded with beloved people (but really, who doesn’t simply love cakes?) 😉
I will share these 5 parts of journeys on my birthday each year with you so you will cherish how important birthdays are to me (not only mine but people around me!) and lepas ni jangan la tease me lagi ye psl I know I will get over excited during the birthday month itself!
I don’t have any memory on this one (duh? of course!). But we were staying at our old house in Seri Serdang (I still passed by that house sometimes). But I bet it was a great birthday. Who doesn’t love a ONE year-old toddler? 😉
Antik giler barang2 kat rumah I kan? I loved that side table and we still have it growing older. I wonder where that TV bersemadi now. On the left was my one year older brother, Azree and the one to cake-pranked me was mum. Good times I bet (still takde memory of these). Hehe 🙂
Masa ni dah ada TV baru, siap ada penutup pembukak lagi (I remembered that TV, we had it until I was in kindy). On my left was my 2 years-older-than-me brother, Badi and right my brother Azree tadi tu. My younger brother dah lahir this time, he should have been about 3 months old.. I remembered this cake, cos it was star-shaped (I rememberd requesting for it at the bakery shop I guess)..
Masa ni I grew older and taller and I still have some memory for this year. Both my brothers were in kindy (just in front of our house) so I pun slalu menyibuk skali everytime there were sports day, pakaian beragam, birthday parties etc. My dad was the Chairman of that kindy for many2 years (until my younger brother graduated. hehe) so kira our family jadi mcm ahli2 wajib la untuk apa2 function. This birthday party was held outside the house, in the lawn area and I remembered getting my first teddy bear for this year.
Oh, I remembered this vividly. We were just moving out to new house (the house we’re currently in), we get new sofas (rattan furniture was outdated that time, you see?) and every other new things for the new house. It was a remarkable time of my life. There was Aful, time birthday semua orang dia pun nak blow the candles as well (sibuk aje). Masa ni I started to collect lot of dresses (mum’s courtesy) and feel like a woman already 🙂
