I have an interesting wifey who is very tough minded, strong willed and unpredictable at times like our weather. I cannot ask for more spices and excitement into my life with her around me. She always pointed out that we should swap our souls so that she would be my husband instead! LOL
Just a brief summary of this gal who once joined the Century Rides cycling from Round Penang Island to Perak and Kedah back to Penang, clocking 180km! She has dragged the very lazy me to scale the mountains of Mount Kinabalu, Mount Jiuhua in Anhui, Mount Hua in Xian and Mount Emei in Sichuan. I have delayed the remaining with mental fatigue excuses to scale the Mount Putuo and Mount Wutai in China. It is very tough to climb when your age and physical have passed the sweet 30s.
Mount Hua is the most dangerous mountain in all China.
Nothing above will stop my wifey who wore a red hat during winter in Xian.

She has bravely cut up real dead bodies on the operating table during her anatomy studies at University Malaya while her course mates either threw up or fainted with rubber knees. She went on to help the morgue of the N's funeral parlour to bathe the female corpses before applying make ups from her skills obtained during her certified bridal make up studies. She would have signed up if they conducted courses for Dead Body Make Up instead. This year will mark the end of her Masters in Education Psychology before continuing on with her Phd in Education. Her ultimate aim is to someday change the way of our deteriorating education system.
I always found her thinking very unique, out of this world, far sighted and scary at times. Look at how she threw me 3 surprise birthdays that shocked me twice instead beyond words!
One early morning in the wee hours, I was still sound asleep inside our condo. Suddenly, my wife shook me up and screamed that there was a daring robber trying to break into our condo unit through the window. I was so blurr and drowsy but sprang out of my bed very angrily like Incredible Hulk. I grabbed a big stick at my bed side and ran out of my bed room's door with messy hair in just my sexy boxer shorts!!! I was ready to clobber the robber's head!
To my great HORRORS, I was very shocked to see the panicked faces of my working colleagues who were equally shocked to see me almost naked holding a stick charging at them inside the living room! Oh My God! They almost threw the lighted birthday cake at me and ran for their lives! Muahahahaha....
**My Verdict: It was so well planned to round them up at wee hours!
My best friend took me out to Mid Valley all day, on my wifey's insistence that this gay friend needs my fullest attention and caring advice. I gave in to his whims and nonsense craps before forcing him to drive me home as I had to get dressed for my candle light birthday dinner with my wife that night.
My friend dropped me at the gate of my terrace house and I hurried myself to the door but turned to look at my friend who trailed me! I asked why he followed me and he grinned cheekily. I opened the main door and almost fainted with my jaws dropped to the floor!
My wifey had invited almost 50 guests who screamed out "Happy Birthday!!!". They were all my school mates with their wives and kids. Best of all, she even rounded up those guys who never spoke to me a single word in school but still turned up. Phew!!! I was shocked, numbed and happy of course but wondered how she could locate them!!! I knew that Facebook was the culprit.
**My Verdict: I could not sense anything outside my house as all the shoes and cars of the guests were hidden out of sight!
I thought the saying goes - "Once Bitten Twice Shy" but I never learnt my lessons because I trust my wifey very much. That night in January, we were supposed to head to my favourite Red Box Karaoke to have buffet and sing the night away with just 2 Of Us! We have done that before where she slept on the karaoke sofa after dinner while I sang alone till closing at 3:00am!! Yes, I was crazy to sing alone and it bored her to sleep.
So fast forward on, my wifey drove me through a very massive traffic jam to collect my birthday cake which was specially ordered by my best friend. We were worried that we would be late for the booked Karaoke Room as we had wasted over an hour on the road jams. Finally, we reached the hotel and I walked into the coffee house to collect my cake. I was speechless to see a table of closest friends smiling and grinning away. It was a very nice and mild birthday surprise to enjoy the company of my friends while tucking into the buffet spread. The most unexpected guest was course our dearie Blogger SK Thambee!!
**My Verdict: I had slight suspicion a bit due to one guest not replying my watsap about the CCTV camera I wanted to monitor my ailing mother on bed. 2nd suspicion was the birthday cake being ordered from that hotel which was not known for baking cakes! Either my friend was a moron or a trick was in store. The real happy surprise was gathering the finest buddies from different walks of life.
Oh well, do you have more shocking birthday surprises than mine?
