Once you celebrated your 40th birthday; half time, 41st birthday is just another year. Not a big deal anymore. That was how we celebrated hubby’s birthday this year.
Both of us were working on that day. No time for me to prepare any special lunch or dinner for him. Not even a cake. He does not want me to buy a cake for him. So, I left my 2nd daughter, 9yo at my parent’s house so that she can bake a cake for her daddy.
A day before his birthday, hubby and I when to dine at his favorite restaurant, Kensington. He ordered his usual, Creamy Chili Seafood Pasta and Kiwi Juice.
So, that’s it.
Honestly, I do not look forward for my birthday this year. Firstly, it fell on a working day. So I set my mind that there won’t be anything special on that day. I had so many birthdays before. What is there for a year without celebration.
Praise God that hubby managed to get his part-time staff to relief him on my birthday. So I got my much awaited foot reflexology. But it did not turn out as expected. I did not get to eat what I wanted to have on my birthday too.
My 9yo baked and decorated a birthday cake for me.
Next year, I will plan my 40th using my own money. Then I can get to buy and eat what I wanted.
I booked an apartment with Bayu Beach Resort for a night stay in Port Dickson. But due to the rain, we cancelled our reservation because it is no point going there when we can’t spend our time at the beach and the swimming pool when it rains.
Since leave has already been arranged we diverted to spending our holiday in Melaka. We brought all our 6 children to watch movie at GSC, Aeon Bandaraya. Bringing children to a movie, it has to be animation, so we watched Frozen. No regrets.
Then we had lunch at Jusco Food court then to Kids Playground; RM10 per child, unlimited time. My 2 older daughters went for 6D Motion Ride, tried the massage chair and went Christmas shopping with me.
We went home to rest for my babies to take their nap then we went to Air Panas Gadek for a swim in the hot water spring. We left around 9pm for dinner at McD then to Klebang Beach for supper!
No regrets for not being able to spend our holiday in PD.
I want to rant a bit today. To the people older than me, even when I am 39 years old already, they still treat me as the little girl that they once knew.
I was really hurt the other day. “You must be responsible if something happened bla bla bla.” was the sentence that hurt me the most. Hello! I am married woman with 6 children and a business to run. Don’t you think that I do not understand simple matter like responsibility, family and work?
Praise God for the opportunity for me to learn a valuable lesson that day.
