Alhamdulillah and special thanks to all my birthday wishers!
I mean...really REALLY special.
It was not only that you
remembered my birthday instead
your wishes and PRAYERS
really touched my heart.
It did not matter what you call
me...any nicknames you
give me whether it is Along or Koari
or Aryana or Shazzy or VO or...or.
You'll put a smile on my face.
And I really look drop dead
GORGEOUS when I smile!
It is impossible for me to make a list of appreciation to all of my family and friends throughout the world. But I need you to know that I'm really thankful for all your words of courage. You know, because of you all I had the most amazing, colourful life. Sometimes fun, sometimes exciting, sometimes desperate, sometimes shocking. It's a life you can't imagine anyone else leading. Only EXCLUSIVELY me!
Well when it comes to MY BIRTHDAY...I might want to give some hints...uhm...in case you were thinking of a present for me! I used to get teddies and still...and I have lots of teddies. Apparently they sat all over my bed and Mom said that I should ARRANGE AND PLACE them in a huge teddy box that my sister bought for me. My Mom, aside from giving me teddies she also gave me crystal brooches. I really like those Ozel brooches. The sad story is...one day I lost one of my favourite crystal brooch. It was an amethyst brooch and it had a hook so you could even wear it as a locket. I was restless that day...so I called my Mom crying over a lost brooch!
Next I love cakes and chocolates!
That is why my doctor asked me
to lose my CURRENT WEIGHT.
However, eventhough Pn. Iman- my married housemate knew this fact,
"It's OK...It is just once a year you cant get to eat a whole cake!"
And she bought a huge mouth watering
ice-cream cake from Chocola
and we ate that cake that NIGHT.
Also Kak Ella,
our Assistant Head of the Class...
made me a Carrot Cake!
Another thing I prefer for my birthday is a book as a present! When I was a kid, my Mom used to presented me with books. When I started reading at the age of four, she bought me a set of 'My Bear's Counting House'. The next year I got a set of expensive Fairy Tales hard covers. When I turned six, she read to me a set of 'Siri Binatang Syurga' that she bought. I also got another big hard cover fairy tales with more stories the next year. I may be not going to list down all the books she gave because to count each of it...it would be a lot! Hence, friends giving me books as presents are dear to my heart! I really like it when my friends gave a book as a present whether a book to read or a book to write!
Now, my most loved
birthday gift is......
A BIRTHDAY CARD!
Believe me, when I get
a birthday card, I feel
extremely happy that
deep down inside me
I am jumping up and down
and doing my snoopy
I don't know......but I feel like....cards are priceless. May be because I can save the memory much more longer...I guess. Uhm...there was a 'modified birthday card' I received from Pka Nawi. It was a bottle of star pills..with instruction on it. It said that I only can take the pills once a day and extra dose when I feel upset. During consuming my dose, I have to unfold a star.....and I'd find couraging words in each of the star!
However, perhaps if you are thinking of buying me an i-phone or an i-pad or a DSLR or another fluffy bushy cat, I'll be accepting the presents with an open heart and hands!
