I suppose many folks will be wondering how I spent my birthday this year. Yesterday, a lot of colleagues were asking me if my wife and I would be doing anything special, to which I gave them my standard reply.
Anyway, I must say, I’m really blessed to be able to spend my birthday on leave doing absolutely nothing related to work for a change. To be specific, how I spent my birthday this year:
- Slept till 3pm.
- Ate honey cornflakes for lunch.
- Christmas shopping.
- Dinner at Fish n Co.
- More shopping!
- Arrived home and got a SURPRISE from my mom and sis who were faithfully waiting for me with a nice chocolate cake. *burp*
Present from wifey!!! Finally, a more “formal” looking watch to wear to work.
On Tuesday, I was also very blessed to be able to celebrate my birthday together with Dave (albeit a belated one for him) and the other unit folks. We went to this place called Sistina Restorante at Jalan Merah Saga (it’s one of those small lanes across the road from Holland Village).
Check out the romantic ambience! Hope our rowdy bunch didn’t ruin it for the other couples. *chuckle*
I must say I’m really blessed to have such caring “seniors” in church like Elaine, Mabel, Chris, Yihong, David and Li San; who are all always so willing to help me out with advise on how to take care of a Care Group. It’s indeed a real joy to be able to serve together with such sweet spirited and cheerful folks!
Finally, if anybody is interested in trying out the food at Sistina, I wholeheartedly recommend the Pasta Carbonara. It’s one of the best I’ve ever tasted so far. 😀
