The Week That Was

I have been a little slow in getting back into my daily routine after such a long break so I'll just post some pictures to recap the week that has flown by so quickly...

I became a year older. This year's birthday was extra special
because it was a public holiday as it coincided with the
installation of the new Yang Dipertuan Agong.
CoolTeen bought me not 1 but 2 gifts,
and the salesgirl wrapped it up
in such an artistic way! The top box looks

like a collared shirt.

Gifts from my kids...love them!
They are now proudly
displayed on my piano top.
Gift from hubby...Amazon's tablet called
'Kindle Fire'. Now I won't need to play Angry Birds
using the small screen of my phone anymore!
CoolTeen's handphone fell apart, but he still
doesn't want to get a new one, preferring
to save up some money and wait for iPhone 5.

I know fish blow bubbles but this is kind of overdoing it!
Actually it's just a view of hubby's little fish pond 

due to the pump malfunctioning and blowing out air.
And last but not least...a new pair of birds have
made a home in the nest in our garden and 2 little
babies are hatched! :
In the midst of the joy there was also shock and sadness as I received news that a childhood friend's husband suffered a stroke and passed away. They have 3 young children. Life is precious and for some it's short, and I like this quote that sums up our life purpose for each day:

"This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind...let it be something good."  - Author unknown

Happy belated birthday!
I can see your kids and hubby adore you, and I'm sure that is because you are a great wife and wonderful mother. Wishing you happiness always!
