Happy Birthday To Me!

Today is my birthday again. The last celebrations was exactly one year ago. Last night, I had dinner at the Japanese Steamboat restaurant together with my wife and 2 good friends. One of them bakes good cakes and pastries. So I got a nice cake with candles to blow last night.




Last weekend, I was away to Singapore just to visit 3 sick and old uncles in 2 different hospitals. One of them who had stroke 3 times, threw up blood suddenly a few weeks ago. That doesn't sound good.




While I was in Singapore, my school mate texted me a shocking message. This tragic news shocked the country and made me numb!


Yes, you probably had guessed right about the death of the young student when his car plunged into the sea off the Penang Bridge! Life is so fragile. His parents and all family members are devastated by this horrific accident which no words could describe.

  3. Well, first of all...happy birthday to you! Hmmm, let me count the candles (from the blurry photo)...51st birthday? Kekeke! ;D

    Yeah, I read about this tragic news. I can imagine the feeling your classmate (and family members) must have felt. It's so sad when a life is cut short in a tragic accident like that. Hope the family stays strong.

  12. Life's so unpredictable! Just received news this morning that one of our army boys left us due to an accident while training in NZ. He's a popular child actor & it's such a sad & devastating news even I don't know him personally. That being said, I'm a mom with a son who had gone thru NS so I can truly connect .......

  23. Belated birthday to you my friend and I really missed reading blogs for last few weeks because of my spasm in arm. Though I feel good now, I’m slow in checking blogs and I feel sorry for the young one that drown into the sea. Hope your visit on the uncles feels them better. A little bit of care and support from any form will work for them the better.
