My birthday concluded in a post:
Oops but before that,
I was stuck in traffic for FOUR DAMN HOURS for some stupid reason. Yea all the commuters on on Persiaran Kewajipan stretch last Friday night, say it altogether now - 'for some stupid reason'! The traffic lights were not working and it took them 4 hours to get it fixed. To make it all worse, no traffic police was in sight. For 4 damn hours. Yes people I've said it and I'll say it again - for some stupid reason. I reached home at 12.30am. Can you imagine that. Can you imagine how much torture did I have to go through to get to my comfy bed. On empty stomach may I add. I was on the verge of switching on my notebook and did my work while waiting the cars to move. I was that crazy. Just imagine the pain people. And multiply that with the numbers of cars that night. Aaaaargghhhh!!!!!
Oh my goodness I'm getting that out of my system right now.
* deep deep breaths *
So... the birthday post again:
It was so good that it fell on a Saturday! O yeah, a good sign already. Woke up late to a very bright and cheerful morning. Found out Ammar was missing and the front door was wide open. Was very confused as to what could've been happening. Checked the kitchen out, was in order. I didn't know what was wrong with me but I decided to get back to bed...hmmm... I was so convinced that everything was okay. Ammar was somewhere in the house and I just couldn't find him. When the senses kicked back in, I realized that his door was closed. Ah so he's inside. Not to take any chances, I peered in and yeah he was there reading something. So back to bed I went with a couple of made up explanations (hehe) on the front door. Couldn't be bothered to close it. Hey I was on high spirit lah don't blame me.
I didn't go to sleep immediately so I decided to watch Shrek 2. And Last Samurai followed with Ammar joining in. Abah's message came in from Penang to wish me happy birthday, to which I was beaming with joy. But he's not the first wish though but that doesn't matter really. Anyway, I told Ammar we were going to catch a movie so at 12 noon we were off to Bukit Raja. While queuing for the tickets, snapped a pic to send to Otel...hahahaha... just to make him feel like he was there, sort of... I'm a kejam sister hahahaha. When we were dining in at Nando's a pic again was snapped and sent. Saje je ngusik. That's the way we are but that doesn't mean we do that to hurt anyone's feelings. The best thing is we always know what exactly we mean even with a subtle body language. I mean it's like you have your own way to communicate with your brothers, especially when you want to keep something from the parental unit..... hehehe.... Siblings do that don't we all?
And after the movie, which was lousy (I was half asleep most of the time), I went shopping (fuyoo that sounds like I got a lot of money....hahaha... well for a moment here let's just pretend la haaa... it was my birthday). It seems so unreal to me since the last time I got myself a nice piece of clothing was months ago. And I got myself a new purse. Current one is too battered to keep everything together. I should get myself a handbag but my senses worked me out of it. A new pair of shoes but my head stopped me.
Spent the rest of the afternoon picking t-shirts for the boys, abah's included. Baju raya la kiranya, 2 pieces per person. They're not that branded or anything. I picked the ones that I like to look at and thought they would feel comfortable in it. I couldn't afford this previously so this really makes me feel like I'm responsible, well in a way that is. Like I mean something and do my part as family.
Mak je belum beli pape lagi. But she's mentioned a pair of Modernmom shoes... hmmm... mahal wehh... tapi I've never bought her anything that expensive yet so I'm smiling right now. I can make my family happy at the very least, that's what important. I know I can't spend this much often (I can't live like that to be honest) but it feels good.
Back home, we stuff ourselves with McD. Tak larat la nak masak. Too tired. So Ammar and I makan-makan and talked and joked while me sorting out the goodies. Afterwards Ammar went to his pc routine. I stayed glued on tv.
This is probably the most meaningful birthday I've ever had. Thanks for the warm wishes people. I really appreciate it.
