This is a long overdue entry/gallery of my mom’s birthday and Christina’s birthday thingies last month in April. April is an uncanny birthday month for my friends and family. Carlo’s birthday is on the 2nd. Virginia, Helen, and my mom shares April 7th. Then Fiona’s birthday is on the 13th. My younger cousin Kai Yeen and Michelle shares the same birthday on the 21st. Edmund for the 27th, and lastly, Christina for the 29th. That’s a whopping nine people!
Fortunately, there is no… Ah this reminds me of something. Be right back in a min.
[goes to the closet to look for something]
Nevermind. I just remembered that I gave $30 to my mom on Monday. Wait, no that… Let me check again. Ah I don’t know!
Okay, so here are some pictures of my mom’s birthday about a month ago. My brother and I got her a gift bag of Shiseido products and a chestnut almond cake, and my dad took us all out for Vietnamese noodles. My mom prefers simple foods that doesn’t cost a fortune and still tastes good.
^^ My mom praying to the cake…? Nah, she’s just wishing for a lot of things to happen and not happen.
^^ My brother Edmond, camera wary… He’s been getting a lot of paparazzi lately… Poor fool.
^^ The cake!
^^ My mom cutting her cake!
^^ I would have played too, but it has been more than a year since, and I wasn’t very good at it in the first place, plus I forgot the terms and such. Blah.
^^ That’s my dad way back there in the purple, and in the foreground, the Mahjong junkies play!
^^ L-R: Christina and my eldest cousin Catherine. You see Pat? You see what you missed out? She turned 19 this year. Really too bad, cuz I heard her new boyfriend is one hot halfy – according to my brother. Haha!
^^ L-R: my eldest aunt on my mom’s side, and my mom, obviously… 8]
^^ That’s my aunt in all her youthful might! Albert once, well, no, more like very occasionally remarked that if she was still single, he would have gone after her. Hey, I think she’s something like 48 years of age, but I’ve noticed that she can dress really nice and bitchy-like – very suitable to look like an older sister of Christina. YOU’RE ALL PERVERTS! [laughs] Even you Laura! Even you… [wink]
^^ She’s blowing the kitty…!
^^ B-F: my uncle (Christina’s dad), Christina, her mom, and her brother Brandon.
^^ L-R: Christina, her mom, her mom’s friend, her aunt (from the dad’s side).
As for Michelle, my thingy bounced back from the post office. So I’m going to resend it after the weekend. [sobs] I think you and your hubby might like it. If not, then you and your girlfriends or gay friends, or non-gay friends, or just friends, sisters possibly and brothers with mothers and fathers and neighbors can also like it too. Your kids on the other hand might not, or at least, I wouldn’t suggest you play it with your kids.
