Today I’m another year older but probably not another year wiser kot :-). Early this morning, The Other Half and I were sleeping and suddenly dia terjaga around 5 in the morning, and I pun terjaga sama sekejap. Dia terperasan yang I opened my eyes, terus dia ucap, “happy birthday!”. At 5 o’clock in the morning, what do you think my respond was? Obviously lah I just grunt and said, “uh!” which meant ‘thanks’ if I was more awake, hehehehe. Luckily lah I still ‘jawab’ his wish instead of just jegil biji mata ke dia sebab wished me pagi2 buta :-). But he did wish me again when we were both more awake at 6.30 wish I answered with a smile and a proper “thank you Dear!” :-).
Then it was The Little Misses’ turns to wish their favourite Mummy a happy birthday with presents from them (bought by The Other Half obviously). I asked him apsal beli hadiah lagi when we’ve bought the Palm Treo as our birthday presents. Jawapan dia, “I bought these things before we decided to buy the Palm.” Unbelievable, my hubby bought my birthday presents weeks in advance! Selalunya, sehari sebelum my birthday baru lah dia kelam kabut beli the present (or after my birthday!), hehehe.
Can you see the birthday card my bertuah Other Half gave me with the number 40 infront? Do you know what he said? Dia kata, saje je bagi card tu sebab then I have 1 year to get used to the idea of turning 40 next year! Ada ka! Nasib baik lah wife dia ni malas nak cari gaduh and merajuk on her birthday, so I buat tak tau aje bila dia cakap macam tu. Menyampah betul!!!!! Probably, dia nak jimat duit kot so he can give me the same card next year!! Gelak aje my bertuah Other Half tu bila baca the above sentence…..
Then, we had breakfast (prepared by me, siapa lagi kan!). I wanted to have kaya toast with teh tarik (macam kat kedai mamak tu :-)) so semua orang kena lah bersarapan dengan kaya toast pagi tadi which they enjoyed, hehehe.
Then lunch was leftovers from last night (again reheated by me!). Bila lah agaknya I’ll get to just lepak2 without having to lift a finger to cook on my birthday ni ye :-)? Then, I made doughnuts for afternoon tea sebab dah lama tak makan doughnuts ni.
Tapi tercair pulaknya the choc ganache and malas pulak I nak betulkan, hehehe….
Then followed by dinner which was also cooked by me. I nak makan dishes yang I really like tonite (since it’s MY birthday) so kalau I suruh The Other Half masak, he’ll cook dishes yang he can cook which is highly probably not the same as dishes that I like so baik I aje lah yang masak kan! At least, I know I will enjoy the dinner :-). He owes me BIG! (Dah berapa minggu dia tak cook dinner on Saturday night ni so memang lah dia akan kena cook every weekend for the next few months, hahahaha).
I kan memang suka sangat2 noodles ni so malam ni I masak mee goreng, makan pulak dengan honey chicken. Actually honey chicken ni memang kegemaran semua orang so bukan I sorang aje lah yang makan beria2 tadi, even Miss 10 pun makan banyak you :-). (Miss 5 and The Other Half tu tak payah cakap lah kan, memang hari2 pun makan banyak, wehehehe).
And then, sure you all tertanya2 kan, what about the birthday cake? Dulu masa kecik2 kalau buat birthday party, mesti mintak kek span yang jual kat kedai kek tu with mocked cream and bunga wafer. Lagi besar the flowers, lagi sedap sangat2 rasanya the kek. Padahal, tak sedap pun but it’s the size and the deco that counts right, hehehe. Tapi, bila dah tua ni (39 ok not 40!), dah malas nak buat birthday cake for me sebab bukannya susah sangat nak buat cake ni, kalau bukan on birthdays pun boleh buat, betul tak (cuma bab men deco cake cantik2 yang I still tak pass2 lagi, hehehe). And tak sanggup I nak meniup 39 batang lilin, maulah kek tu nanti basah denagn semburan air liur aje (uweekkkk, tak lalu I nak makan!). So, tadi as a cake replacement, I made apple pie. I lagi suka makan apple pie ni dari makan kek, tambah2 lagi kalau makan dengan vanilla ice cream, memang heaven……. :-).
My simple birthday ‘cake’.
So, itulah saje cerita what happened today on my birthday. Kesimpulannya,
1.The Other Half tak sabar nak tunggu I turn 40 (rolling eyes now!!!!)
2. I still kena masak on my birthday (more rolling eyes!!!!)
3.I still love them dearly though, hehehehe
p/s to all my family and friends yang wished me a very Happy Birthday, thank you very much for your kind thoughts.
pps I ada citer lagi best nak khabaq kat sini but nanti lah ye, closer to the date :-)
