Of birthdays and relatives
When you get to my age, there's bound to be celebrations that you think back with fondness. I have had a birthday surprise up in a magnificient country house hotel, set within the beautiful Chiltern Hills overlooking The Thames. Then another year, a singer jumped up on to the table and serenaded me with a birthday song, all breathless like Marilyn Monroe and another unforgetable one was the mother of all surprises when I found the husband of mine hovering over the stove at a friend's house, cooking my birthday dinner. Oh, and last year it was Raihan who sang their birthday rendition to me. But nothing can beat this! It had me rolling on the floor! Thanks everyone! Love you lots. ENJOY THIS!!
To my other significant half, Hafiz, Rehana, Nona and Taufiq - thanks for a wonderful evening and prezzies and delicious cake.
To Jefri - THANK YOU!!! A wonderful treat.
To the staff who sang when I stepped into the hotel lounge..hahaha! what a wonderful surprise.
I had a very fulfilling day working and a wonderful evening with the family.
