Happy Birthday to ME!

Happy Birthday to me ~

Happy Birthday to Pam ~
Happy Birthday to me!!!

"Teacher, Yuen Yu is not feeling well, she has a bad stomach ache."
I rushed to the classroom and found Yu bending her body forward with her head buried in her arms.
"Are you alright, Yuen Yu?" I repeated the same question for several times but the girl who was 'obviously' in 'pain' refused to lift her head. Neither did she respond to my concern. Suddenly, the other girls popped out from nowhere and held a cake in their hands.
There goes the birthday tunes ......

I was overcome with emotion I couldn't respond appropriately to the pleasant 'surprise' because I knew that I was never their favourite teacher. While they expected to see me shed my tears, I was still too confused to react to the unexpected situation. Rather, it was a photo given by a student which wetted both my eyes. We both looked so cheerful in that picture and the smile of the girl was something I had always wanted to see throughout my years of being her Form teacher. From a cocoon, a butterfly emerges...

When I got home, I 'assembled' my birthday 'cake'. YEAH ~~ I bought them from Petaling Jaya.

Close your eyes, make a wish, and blow out the candle light ~~~

Mum bought me an apple mousse cake.

Dad took us to a restaurant for dinner and we shared the lovely cake. Happy! Happy!
