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!!

PS:
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.
THANK YOU.

mekyam said...

kt,

OH YES, PLEASE!!! :D

i'll start practising that disjointed head movement with the rapid unblinking eye movements right away. the tummy roll will have to wait though. nampak susah.

but wait... tadi lupa ( so terpesona i was with the dancing)... MANY WONDERFUL BLESSED RETURNS, kt dear!

Kak Teh said...

D, thanks and to your answer your sms question: too many candles that we'd have to risk triggering the fire alarm. Or, as the other joke goes: it'll give instant suntan to all around the table !

Mekyam, we will than have to give you a glamour name: meeka yummy bee or something bollywood. I'm tempted too to do the routine but there's a risk of triggering the richter scale!

yes, thanks for the kind wishes.read oli - she has some wonderful memories of her life in the US. she my dear niece.

Mama Rock said...
