One of the reasons of me and my wife went back to Kuching last week was to celebrate mum and dad's birthday. Mum and dad's birthday is only 10 days apart, so we celebrate their birthday together every year.
It's mum's 70th and dad's 78th birthday. I praise God for His blessings on my parents. Both my parents are still very healthy, and had just came back from a holiday trip to Hainan Island, China. I can still remember vividly how dad had worked until midnight everyday while we were small, just to earn enough money to feed us 7 siblings (He earned RM150 per month by then). While mum had to take care 2 hectares of pepper field to get extra income for the family. Now that 6 of their 7 children are degree holder, while 1 obtained technical certificate, my parents are contented.
We had pre-celebration in the morning. Cake cutting, mesmerizing good old time, sipping coffee or tea...
Then invited a few relatives and friends to a dinner at a restaurant. Dad like 'meriah' environmnent. His grandchildren (my nieces) sang him and mum two songs, dad was grinning ear to ear.
I love you Ma, I love you Pa. Happy Birthday and may God keep you both well and healthy.
