Another year older. Third birthday to celebrate away from my family but with my second family. I had no plans at all but to have a long weekend. I had my very own pre-celebration in Abu Dhabi. Checked-in with my friends but I was the only one that enjoyed as they have to take some exam. Visited my cousin but unfortunately I have to see them in the hospital, my nephew was sick that time. But now he’s home!
So… It was a long day! I enjoyed the pool, the room, though they’re not that huge, the breakfast, and walking here and there. Sipped my cup of coffee in Starbucks while reading some stuffs and I swear, I had two cups and I will not try it again! I was awake until the next day.
I was back in Al Ain the next day. I just did my usual stuffs and uh oh~ phone calls from work. And the surprise starts.
I thought it was an ordinary dinner with my sister in Christ and then suddenly, I heard something that sounds like fireworks. They gave me cake and flower!
After church, I was asking myself why it was so dark. They should open the light! And when I entered, balloons are everywhere.
Ok, so I thought that’s the end.
As I prepared our dinner with all my friends, I cooked pasta and grilled chicken!, a surprise cake from my home mates. And my sisters in Christ finally realized that I just opened my eyes very wide and says “Oh” during surprises. I’m a weirdo, I know.
It’s not yet the end. We’re doing a wrap up when my so called “mommy” came out of the room with a box. Another gift.
It was an overwhelming birthday.
And a small cake from my Church family.
Thank you for all the love and surprises.
