Gone were the days where she had loud, top 40 music blaring from the radios at her party. Gone too were the days where she played musical chairs and all those party games. When you're 46 and counting.....it's more about giving than receiving and also modesty.
I bought her an MNG shirt as a birthday gift. Yes, my cool, hip mum still wears MNG at her age.
And she decided to celebrate her birthday at an orphanage near Sungai Buloh. One thing that wasn't gone was her love for magic. There was a clown to entertain and the orphans were excited and happy to see us amid the turbulations of being orphaned and underpriviliged.
To my beloved Ibu, Happy 46th Birthday!!
May you have another glorious, great 46 years to come.
