"Men are what their mothers made them" --Ralph Waldo Emerson
All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.
Mothers are fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own.
The loveliest materpiece of the heart of God is the love of a Mother.

Today is my special day, the day that I’m officially gain more wisdom, the day that I’m realize that I’m getting older (only by age). The day that many friends and relatives send me messages and so many wishes. This is also the day that I thank God for sending me to this world surrounded by so many great people. It’s my birthday! 

But this birthday really feels different. This is the year when I’m actually climbing up from the deepest freefall of my entire life. This year has been my biggest milestone, my biggest failing, and thank God and my lovely family, this year I had my highest get-up-and-climb as well. This year no family from J-town visiting. This year M is already big enough to help me blow the candles. This year I had my last year wish came true: to celebrate my birthday in our own house. This year I literally don’t have anything to wish for except to become a stronger and tougher mom so that I can always be there for daddy and M. That’s why this year is different.

However, we decided to have a small feast for ourselves, we cooked!

 

Roasted Kampong Chicken

This meal is to represent how I missed my kampong, J-town. And the idea of wholesomeness is kinda my hope to close this year.

 

Steamed Golden Pumpkin

This is M’s choice of dish as this is his favorite dish since he was a baby. To me, it represent the prosperous and sweetness you can taste after a long hard process. I love that M choose this!

 

Chilli Crab

This is me and daddy’s favorite of dish. But to me it represent toughness that I wish to have for the rest of my life since I met M for the first time.

 

Black Forest (by Breadtalk)

And of course, my surprise birthday cake from daddy and M! Thank you boys, love you both a lot!

 

Thank you to all friends and fams for all the wishes, may all the wishes get back at you :-*
