It’s my birthday today and it’s my very first away from home.
With only home-cooked spaghetti which was painstakingly prepared for hours to perfection by one of my housemate-friends, Alvin (salamat, sobra!) plus 3 medium tubs of sundae and some kiddie balloons, I had one of my most memorable lunches ever!
In the absence of my wife, Tina and our son Gabby whom I dearly miss, I felt special on my big day in the company of my new found friends who now I consider my family here in Penang. Mushy it may sound, but I am sincerely thankful for making my very first birthday away from home, really special.
Perhaps like the others, I’ll be used to being an expat too, celebrating special occasions far from my loved ones. I know it’s part of the price we have to pay in exchange of a better future of family.
I’d like to thank everyone who greeted me here in my blog, posted messages on my facebook wall, and those who sent me e-cards.
Forgive me Lord, for my shortcomings. In any case, may those people I wronged be forgiving too.
Thank you Lord, for all the blessings and for giving me another year. May you continue to bless my family, friends, blog buddies and relatives with better health and may You put us all in Your care always. Amen!
Happy Birthday to me!
