Birthdays are a big deal with us. Not big in the sense that we go all out and splurge every single cent we have on it big, but big enough for us to celebrate it for a few days at a go so as to suck every drop of wonder and celebration out of it before we have to wait a whole year for it to come by again. And this time, it was Su Juin’s happy day — our favourite girl with the infectious laugh whom I’ve yet to see wear a frown no matter what the situation dished to her. Being around her is like being around a perpetual happy bulb which radiates and emits only positive energy and feel good vibes so you can bet we’re not just gonna let her birthday go by quietly — not when she’s brought with her so much character and significance into our lives =)
Seeing as how she’s already had an awesome surprise of a celebration that had all the compulsary hurrah and merry-making of a birthday befitting of a darling like her over the weekend, we thought a nice quiet dinner would make a nice change this time round. So dinner it was that we finally made it to have after bouts of getting lost and nerd- raging at the GPS LOL.
No party is complete without cheese laden nachos dripping with mouth-watering tangy salsa and topped generously with clotted sour cream and jalapeno!
A fever, gastronomical gastric pains and a head-splitting bout of flu had gotten me down the past few days, making this the worst week ever since 2010 dawned. This dinner was just what I need to up the happy meter again and be reminded how life isn’t measured by the quantity of achievements, nor is it only all about the vastness of one’s accomplishments, but rather the quality of seemingly little moments like birthdays that though may seem like an annual affair that’s not too big of a deal, herald equally a great significance. No two birthdays are ever the same!
We hope you liked the little pink squashy thing we got you that’s oh-so-cute! The wide grin and overjoyed eyes made us think almost immediately of you xD
“I would hurl words into this darkness and wait for an echo, and if an echo sounded, no matter how faintly, I would send other words to tell, to march, to fight, to create a sense of hunger for life that gnaws in us all.” ~Richard Wright, American Hunger, 1977
Thank you for the beautiful echo.
Once again, Happy Birthday! We love you! =)
