So… in case you didn’t hear… Shorty’s birthday this year fell on the first day of Chinese New Year. That pretty much ruled out any form of a birthday party because well.. nobody would come. So to make up for it I organized a small surprise birthday dinner among Shorty and her close friends a few days before.
On the first day of New Year though I still wanted to do as much as I could to make sure she remembered that it was her birthday… and not just CNY. So she woke up with breakfast in bed (her favourite Roti Canai) though she eventually got out of bed to eat it because she found it difficult to eat while in bed.
Then we went out… got another birthday cake for her (the first one was at our surprise party a few days ago) and came home to sing a song for her so she can cut a cake. We also went out much of the day to celebrate Shorty’s birthday as much as we can.
In spite of all our efforts though, all in all Shorty’s birthday still got drowned out by Chinese New Year. The spirit of CNY was just too strong and there was only so much we can do on CNY because everything was closed.
To make matters worse, this Valentine’s day this year is the first Valentine’s Day Shorty and I will spend apart ever since we got together. Why? Because while she headed back to KL, I have to spend Valentine’s Day in Singapore for some meetings and work.
The good thing though is that these little things like Valentine’s Day never bugged us. I mean we never needed to wait for a particular day to shower each other with love…. we think we do it all the time. Almost as much as we annoy or insult each other … which reminds me… I know I ended Things Shorty & Fatty Say at #100 but I’m still considering bringing it back ok? Just need a breather for a bit before I try to get into the habit of remembering the things we say that make each other laugh every day.
Just out of curiosity, how many of you guys really want to see Things Shorty & Fatty Say continue for another 100? Will there even be a hundred of you guys?
