Happy birthday dad and me
Yesterday I met an Iranian brother. Well I'm helping him because he is new to this place and struggling to settle down. Then we had the conversation
AR: How old are you brother?

Me: Guess?

AR: errrr 22 maybe

Me: ....big smile.....

errrr 22 maybe.... When I hear that figure I feel like a kite flying on the sky, feel so young again even though I know Im still young indeed...ahahahaha.

Me: I'm @#@#@ and in fact tommorrow is my birthday

AR: I can't believe look so young brother...

Me: I'm young..ahahahaha

Today, when I woke up, there is a sms from Lin for the well wishes. Thanks! And my sis served the breakfast, mi goreng and she hugged me for my birthday wishes. My brother in law also wished me by reminding the big number.....sabar je la ahaha. They bought me a present too. My nephew wrote a birthday card for cute. He's only three... and this evening we will be going out for dinner at Fish and Chip in Freementle......

Again this year there is no double birthday partner is away in Malaysia. We are sharing the same birthday..we always celebrate it together. But my two sisters already arrange the day for him. All of us share to buy him the present, a new handphone for him. Happy Birthday to my beloved Dad.

My blogger friend, Kadok who just celebrated his birthday on 12 March wished to have the same birthday with his coming offspring...( Kadok baby dah lahir belom?) ...and you know kadok, having the same birthday between dad and son not that fun because always have to share the cake or even the present..ahahahaha...

Well honestly its good to have the same birthday with my dad because its usually become the gathering time for all. The family ties is more important, the get together always blend a good and sweet memory. It is not just the cake and candle but the manifestation of love among family is really matter for me.

In Honor of Siblings
Western Australia
I took this photo the last couple of months at the Shelly Bridge . That two little kids, a brother and sister enjoyed themselves and it reminicsing about my childhood days with my big sister. I’m the second child and our age gap is only 2 years. Yea we were very close during that time but not always in a good term. We always fight with each other during our childhood days like cat and dog..ahahaha. But somehow we became close when we were teenager.
But what can I say; she is always a good sister. As the eldest, she set a good precedence. She did well in her study and that become a good catalyst for me to follow. She made her way to MRSM, did her degree, went to US for her master and currently doing her Phd in the kangaroo land.
To the outside world, we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.
