First, the birthday of our young niece, Ms H. She was sort of giving us hints on what she expected to get on her birthday. 'I want a surprise, I want a necklace.' she told my wife last week. Helloooo.... that's a request, not a surprise, young lady. And my wife bought her the present. She was excited to see the 'big' packaging.
It's getting smaller after layers and layers of wrapping..... the smile fades a little as the present get smaller.
Finally, the box of surprise unveiled. The smile turned into a jaw-dropping joy!
It's a crystal necklace and a crystal bracelet of her favourite colour, from her Auntie C and Uncle Josh.
Second, my mother-in-law's birthday. No present for her this year, just a yummilicious lunch. I remember buying her a few presents for the past few years, but she was not really using them even though she was the one who hinted us what to buy: Grill oven, steamer, pressure cooker, to name a few.
She love to have children and grandchildren around her. Gathering like this always bring joy and contented grins on her face. Me and my wife got to help look after this little fella.
An enjoyable lunch for sure. Happy Birthday to You Zhang Mama, and may God bless you abundantly and grant you health.
