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.
To read my old post of Xian, click HERE.
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?
wahhhhh a shocking birthday posts from Anay!ReplyDelete
Your birthdays are sure very interesting Anay.
Yeah birthday is always surprises. Last year you guys also stunned me with the cake at Zanmai. So shy nia with so many candles.Delete
Sorry ah... Lina very forgetful one.ReplyDelete
When is your birthday again?
Heh Heh!!! I mentioned the month above. Sila tengok!Delete
muahahahaha! I love the 2005 birthday surprise! You had me laughing out loud in the office. Luckily nobody was around as it was lunch hour! Your wife is an amazing personality. She does keep your life happy and exciting. TM, you are a very lucky man. And by the same token she is a very lucky woman to have you!ReplyDelete
I am glad I made you laugh! I thought it wasn't funny!Delete
I know I am the lucky one but I give her stress in return! Bad Me!!
I enjoyed reading every word in this post, haha.. Sekali pandang the title, I see My 3 Wives pulak, teehee.. You are indeed very blessed to have such a sweet, caring and thoughful wife.. I want her to be my husband too, wooott, ok, what am I talking? I like the 2005 birthday surprise.. My gawd, wee hours, and your super wifey managed to gather all your colleagues, I salute her, man !!ReplyDelete
Yeah after that 2005 morning, I realised that nothing will stop her to achieve her goals and there is no mountain top that looks impossible.Delete
She also learned sewing recently from an Italian trained teacher after investing on a sewing machine that costs over RM2000! She also took up baking classes, bridal make up course, yoga practitioner's course and clinical hypnotherapy as well. What did I miss out?
First of all, one thing that caught me was you always put a big stick at your bed side kah? Hahahaha..ReplyDelete
Secondly, your wife is indeed a thoughtful and adventurous lady at the same time. She is a keeper. Appreciate her always =). Anyway, happy belated birthday to you (although I don't know when). Hehehe
How about you? Have you ever threw surprise birthday to your wife? Share with us. Love to hear that =)
Yes we all need a stick nowadays as the crime rate in the city has been rising up. No where is safe anymore.Delete
I always appreciate my wife and would squirm like a snail when I made her cross!! Whoops!
My surprises for her was disasters and nothing great to share lah. Paiseh!
Good evening TM... The weather here is super hot today... Wish that the weather is cooling...ReplyDelete
Yes the weather has been so hot everyday. I wanna sleep inside the freezer to chill.Delete
I enjoy reading your blog so much that i always look forward to your new update...ReplyDelete
Oh thank you, thank you!!! Come visit again everyday.Delete
How i wish that your wife is my friend, hehe...ReplyDelete
Why not? She would love to be your friend and learn Zumba from you.Delete
Wonder what surprise will she give you next year?ReplyDelete
I am wondering too!! Need to check my crystal ball and tarot cards....Delete
That mountain, I wish to go there myself someday, must be very chi kek!!ReplyDelete
I agree with Princess Ribbon, it's a blessing and 'fook hei' to have such wonderful wife, like that life got 'cheng chui' ma!! ^^Delete
Our lives had never been boring along the way through meeting weird and wonderful people. Everyday is a bonus to learn something and live in a meaningful way.Delete
my minachi-in-law is surely The Letchumi of All Trades!!! she is so knowledgeable and a woman who is always so motivated and energetic.. she has got so much passion in doing almost everything under the sun, some even got us shocked of surprises.. this woman is really not simple, and my Anay is surely the most lucky man in this Earth to have her as wife.. and look, you look 10 years younger under her influence~~ :pReplyDelete
Spot On Thambee!! She is not simple minded but she is simple and easy in real person, no desires for diamonds, flowers or brands! Yes I admit that I am the most lucky man on earth!Delete
2005!! OMG, i think i have not known you back then, else Letchumi would have probably invited me over and i could see the almost naked Anay at home, muahaha!! frankly, that would be the most embarrassing and most awkward moment, i can imagine Anay standing there, stunned and did not know what to do for a good 10 seconds, and finally awaken and quickly rushed back to his room to put on his clothes.. aiyoyo, this Letchumi~~ReplyDelete
No one had guessed that I would run amok into the living room like a lunatic man!Delete
If I had known about the familiar intruders, I would have worn my Armani shirt and sprayed Issey Miyake parfum to sashay out.
2009.. hmmm, this surprise was not quite legendary as that one in 2005.. probably Letchumi knew she has given you such an awkward time, so she made sure you were dressing up nicely and you are coming into the house rather than coming out of the bedroom.. and i actually wonder how many calls she has made, and how many hours she has spent in making all the calls and also to persuade all your classmates, including those that have never talked to you before, to give you a surprise party!!! aiyoyo, this Letchumi~~ReplyDelete
You are right, the same trick cannot work twice esp if she tells me got robbers again, I might ask her to serve them coffee with cakes! WakakakaDelete
The guy who never talked to me is the present neighbour of AA's Tony Feerdandez! She could lure this iced bloke to get into my house!! ~faints~
2015.. hehehehe!! such an honour Thambee was invited to give Anay a surprise!! but that wasn't as surprising as the previous ones right?? probably Anay has already smelled something fishy and quite prepared for a surprise already, afterall you have been married to this crazy woman for years and you should know her very well.. whenever it's your birthday, you will be expecting surprises, just to what degree only.. aiyoyo, this Letchumi~~ReplyDelete
I smelled something but never guessed Thambee would sit there like Doraemon!Delete
She won't do surprises yearly I hope. Next year I will book air ticket somewhere!!
you will never know she has connections too in other countries!!!Delete
put yourself in a foreign place gives her more chances to set you with a surprise.. at least staying back home, you know what limits her and to what extent she could do~~ hahaha!! my humble opinion :p
Very interesting! Oh, I don't even think of giving surprises to my hubby. Furthermore, he dislikes birthday celebrations. What about you? Have you surprised your precious wifey on her birthdays?ReplyDelete
He may say he disliked but if you do it with the right friends invited, he will love it. Life needs to have some fun & surprises along to gather sweet memories.Delete
hahaha..... what a wonderful wife you had! Luckily you didn't get a heart attack from all the surprises ..hahhha...ReplyDelete
Well, your wife is really one tough lady! Love to hike and cut people like cutting pork.
Tell you what...give her a surprise back with a candlelight dinner on her birthday or wedding anniversary ....etc.
I was never this creative and daring like her to haul up the whole bunch of goons and friends to line up like a platoon. Teach me some tricks please!Delete
I can sense the sweetness in this post, both of you are blessed to have one anotherReplyDelete
In the karaoke, I always sing this to her "Sugar, Sugar You Are My Candy Girl...."Delete
The mountain looks so dangerous and scary, both of you are very braveReplyDelete
Yeah the mountain is more scary than this if you look back into my Xian Hiking post in the link above.Delete
She is the brave one, not me!!
No, nothing can surplus the 3 birthday surprises you got from your wife. She is really a very unique and special lady. I think you mentioned to someone's comment that you have a blogpost sharing with us how you met your wife. Can you please share the link here again? Thank you.ReplyDelete
I just typed one word and it was easy to search for this old post.Delete
Goodness, you have a good elephant's memory to remember my comments to someone.
Thanks for the link. I have read it and it brought tears to my eyes. Can you please share how your Cinderella met her white prince? She already has his mobile number in her phone in your story so how did she get his number?Delete
Let me find time to update my story in the Cinderella post. Oh yes, I also teared when I wrote it last time as the vivid memories were painful.Delete
The asshole fella who cheated her scholarship money and gave her a good beating went on to be the Chinese translator during Nick Vujicic's visit to KL recently.
I hope the person has changed to be a better person today for his own sake.Delete
What a great post... I love it!!!!! That is what love and life is all about... That is what marriage should be about. I'd love to meet you and your wife. She sounds incredible --and OH--so smart.... You both are blessed to have each other.ReplyDelete
All of your birthday celebrations were awesome... I surprised George once with a night at one of the swanky hotels in Nashville, TN ... He was really surprised. Then for my birthday, he surprised me with a night at another of the swanky hotels in Nashville... Then --after we both had retired, we started traveling for our birthdays... We've celebrated both of our birthdays at many wonderful places through the years...
Thank you for your sweet comments. I believe George has inspired me a lot on how he pampered you so much like a doll. You both sure enjoy every minute of your retirement which I hope to enjoy the same way. Yes we would love to visit you in Tennessee!Delete
It is such a waste that your friends did not really throw the cake at you out of fear on that 2005 one, that would've made it super awkward and super epic wahahaha!!!ReplyDelete
I think one of the reasons you love her is because of her "craziness", isn't it? :)
Oh yes, she keeps my blood running always otherwise I might be bored.Delete
What kinda wife are you looking for? Lazy Woman's character as perfect match!
Letchumi is truly something la. One in a billion.ReplyDelete
Hahaha.....laugh die me on your 2005 birthday....luckily you tarak practice sleeping in your birthday suit or else.......habis........ muhahahaha
Wei wei... from the trend....looks like every 4,5 years Letchumi will organise one surprise birthday party for you wor.... 2020.....muhahaha bet will be a blast....dont forget to wear tuxedo and bow tie when you go to bed ya on your birthday night :p
I also thought the same that it might spring back every 4-5 years! I must be smarter next time. heh heh...Delete
Anyway, birthday surprises could be really fun to remember and laugh back.
Hahhaha...that's very nice and funny at the same time. More exciting and fun birthday surprises in the upcoming years.ReplyDelete
Somehow, reading your blog always makes me laugh! You have such a comedic way of writing, Twilight!!!ReplyDelete
:'D :'D :'D
Superduper lucky of you to have received so many happy surprises throughout your lifetime! I don't do well with "surprise parties" or parties, for that matter. I don't like crowds and attention and the thought of walking into a room with people shouting SURPRISE! at me induces panic. Lol.
