[Birthday Candles] – babybluebbw on Flickr, 3 Feb ’07.
The mother didn’t exactly plan our birthdays to be three days apart, since I came out late and the brother came out early, but things happen as they are. So in our younger days, my brother and I would often celebrate our birthdays together. Of course, that particular custom fell into disuse as time passed by.
Happy birthday to Stan; one more year to the 21st! Keep on growing, never stop improving yourself : )
I certainly hope every year brings about new rewards and experiences for him.
The birthday this year’s a rather peaceful one, and my first overseas birthday at that. (Sentosa doesn’t count!) With V, NZ and MS, we walked around the city and ate. And ate. And ate. And ate.
And I had a slice of tiramisu as the birthday cake. Sitting at the Crown complex, together with the three of them singing happy birthday.
Thanks to the people who sent birthday wishes : )
