November is coming to an end. How sad.
Each year I always wait for this particular month to come. It means a lot to me to get warm wishes on my birthday. From what I have observed roughly, about the same number of people have wished me this year as compared to last year. I expected people to just skip the day without bothering to acknowledge the importance of this day to someone (particular me), but I was surprised to see that there are still people who care and are very kind to drop a few comments on my timeline at facebook. How sweet.. :')
This year has been a bit different. After more than 5 years not celebrating my birthday in Malaysia I finally got to sit down and had a proper dinner or a 'small celebration' with my family members. Such a pleasant feeling it was. I have dreamt a lot of times to have this kind of celebrations. It finally came true!
I had very great memories of my birthday back in Kobe, SMSS and even at UM. Surprises from friends, juniors and seniors always make me smile gleefully from the beginning of the day to the end of the week, to say the least. In London it was just okay, but it wasn't too bad. My brother and sister-in-law from Holland sent me a big box of present last year that it shut all the miserable feelings I had at that particular moment.
Birthday is just a day. It doesn't make you taller overnight nor it makes you wiser the next morning, but it tells you somehow that it is a special day which will always be close to your heart. That is why each time I receive messages from people especially the ones whom I wait to hear from, really cheers me up. The messages have magical effects that will lighten some burden on your shoulders and make you feel all warm inside.
I blabber too much. I know. But it doesn't matter. December is approaching anyway.
Either way, it's good to be back home. It's good to eat Malaysian food and get all the things I have been craving for after all this while. And better still, it feels good to feel the love from a short distance. :)
December. You are welcome now!
Love, from Malaysia :)
