Every year around early Feb, I would get a little nervous… hoping and praying nothing terrible- like catastrophic events or fights with my loved ones would spoil my birthday.
The feeling of loneliness creeps in during this period too.. the thought that nobody wants to celebrate with me starts to haunt.
(I wonder if anyone feels the same way too).
dreaded day arrived.
I woke up in the morning feeling awful… Even though I wished I could sleep until the next morning, I decided be brave and go about the day.
Birthday Lunch at Crystal Jade.
Dan dan lamian (Dandan noodles) with xiao long bao (steamed pork buns).
After lunch, I went to Sunday Folks.
What a pretty water fountain they have here.
Ice-cream for the birthday girl.
I went for a pedicure in the afternoon.
When I return home, I found two hard-boiled eggs. My father-in-law asked the helper to prepare them for me.
It’s a birthday tradition in Blueberry’s household.
Oh my, I feel so touched and loved. 🙂
Later in the evening, Blueberry bought the family out to celebrate my birthday.
What’s for dinner?
A 20 inch pizza!
This is my first time having such a big pizza.. Woah!
Blueberry also surprised me with a black forest cake.. with something special added on the cake.
A Hello Kitty cake! It was bought separately, the staff helped to arrange it on the birthday cake.
Thank you, Blueberry. I loved it! 😀
It wasn’t such a bad day after all.
Despite the rocky start, the day ended by celebrating with Blueberry and my loved ones.
It was a meaningful day.. the best I could ask for.
Another year older, but none the wiser.. The more I learn, the less I know. 🙂
