the big 6-0

December 3, 2010

Dad turned the big you-kn0w-what recently!! It was a big deal for us because it marks a new decade for him. Some people may say the three letter “O” word, but I like to say WISE. Hehe. We like to tease him, but he looks 40-something to me anyway ๐Ÿ™‚ Hehe look at this Daddy’s little girl sucking up…

The night before, Mom was frantic trying to prepare his birthday dinner. She’s a perfectionist so everything had to be spanking PERFECT. I wanted to help but I know that my mom’s standards are way too high, so with self-realisation, I ran to the kitchen and disturbed my maid instead.

My parents wanted something very intimate; just us family and the Ustaz who recited doa for my dad to have long life and happiness and all the good stuff! Amin…

Some pictures from the night:

We asked him what he wanted for his birthday and he said just our DOA. Well duh la…that’s everyday!! We still wanted to do something special but we know our dad never wants any material stuff, so we got him something extra special! ๐Ÿ™‚

Will share this with you soon!

To Dad, you’ll always be my hero and only God knows how much I love you. We all appreciate all the hard work you’ve done, while heaving headaches raising these 2 cheeky daughters (OK fine, ONE cheeky one i.e. ME). Everybody says I’m very much like you, and if that’s even half true, I thank God for giving me such strength, kindness, wisdom and blessings in life; because that’s exactly what you are. WE LOVE YOU!!
