i find it a bit corny to post birthday shoutouts, especially since they don't even know the existence of this blog (and i hope to keep it that way =P)
anyhoo, yesterday (30th) was my mil's birthday. we celebrated at Victoria Station, USJ Taipan. we brought Dayana along, who still wasn't keen on settling in her car seat. i was lucky i could pump 4oz of milk from one side before we left the house; she drank almost 3.5oz while we were there just so that she would keep quiet and sit peacefully in her car seat while we finished our meal. she's clever to know that the pacifier will produce absolutely nothing, hence the preference of the bottle to the pacifier *smacks forehead*. the waiter recommended me Spare Ribs, so i had that (i don't really have a particular favorite steak dish in mind), i think Significant Other had Rib Eye, my mil had T-Bone, and my fil had Lobster (all these ramblings are from memory. i dunno if i'm even correct and i have no idea what my siblings in law had, haha). we bought my mil a pair of diamond stud earrings, which she liked (thank God. i fail at present buying).
today is my Dad's birthday. happy birthday Daddy! i hope to save up enough so that i can get something he would like (pst pst Aya... nak chip in tak? =P). i am currently broke at the moment due to the extra addition to the family (also because i'm now paying back my dues). my Dad's born on Halloween. i remember when i was young and in the States we used to carve pumpkins and put lanterns in it. i don't think i've ever seen a decent sized pumpkin in Malaysia though. hmmm, come to think of it... do i like pumpkin pie?
i just realized i have a few people in the family who are born on very interesting days in the year. like for instance, Dayana is two months old today too. she's born on Merdeka day. kewl eh? =P. and Significant Other's grandmother is born on Christmas! me? i'm born on an almost ordinary day but in the most fabulous month ever: sweet November! hehe.
oh yes... happy halloween! don't get scared out of your wits! and mind you... be careful if you're planning on going trick-or-treating =D
