Patchee Is 27 Today

Another year older today. Hopefully another year wiser and another year prettier. *lol*

It was a quiet celebration, nevertheless I am very glad that I celebrated it with my family and close friends. On Saturday, it was with Inspector and his friends. Last night, it was dinner with both our families together. Today, I got to spend the second half of the afternoon with Mum and Dad (it's his first day after retirement) at home, given a red egg to eat and helped put up the Christmas tree. Later in the evening, had a lovely Thai dinner with Inspector, Mighty Dan, Moorish and Sue. Wan Nei, almost 5 hours older than me, were not able to meet up due to work commitments but I am still glad that we managed to hang out on Friday while attending our other halves' common friend's wedding. And wishing each other "Happy Birthday" simultaneously the moment I gave her a call this morning, both without even saying "Hello" in the first place. Tee hee hee..

I was also touched when I received so many birthday greetings and phone calls from friends - old, older still and new, and from several countries too. I'm writing them all down here not because I want to boast, but because they have played a part in my life one way or another and I never, ever want to forget their thoughts nor their friendship many years down the road.

The birthday phone calls from Aneh, Bubble (who would have taken the day off had she knew I took leave, just to celebrate with me. *Awwww*), Pa, Labu and Virgin Boy (all the way from Melbourne).

Most of all, Dad & Mum for bringing me into the world and the neverending love they have given me throughout all these years.
