I am now 45 years old.

For the first time ever my family threw me a small birthday celebration.

The Away Team

It began with Yaya and Adik's family calling from the other side of the planet. We had a good talk. Yaya and Adik had plenty to tell us after they sang me the birthday song.


When I got home from work Ain and Irfan sprung me with an unexpected birthday present.


Besides the present Ain had also been working hard to make the above when I was at work!

Chicken too

This nasi rempah with the spiced chicken lauk was delicious.


To cap it all off, they even got me a birthday cake.

From MSG Unicorn

The present Irfan got for me was a Gundam Super Deformed Sinanju which I thought I would assemble when I have the time and place it on my office table. We have never really celebrated my birthday before because it seemed like a useless gesture, what with the lack of money we used to experience. Even if we survived for the month we would not have any extra cash to do or buy anything else.

However, this evening felt like another affirmation that things are looking much, much better for our family. Alhamdulillah.
