As I Turn 43

Here I am, in Miri.

It is 1.07am on my 43rd birthday. I fell asleep for a while just now but woke up when I remembered I had not taken my medicines. In a little over 7 hours, I will be going to the yard to give a speech on behalf of the company and launch our latest vessel.

And I feel contented.

I feel contented because I feel I’ve done it right this time around; I feel contented because I now have someone very special in my life; someone who is truly a wife.

I feel contented because I have four lovely children, and in addition to that, I have three lovely step-children.

I now have one great sister-in-law (plus her crazy but fun hubby), two great brothers-in-law.

I also have very close friends who are also part of my ‘other’ family.

And I have a great brother, and cousins.

And I have me…a new me…whose total cholesterol, blood glucose and blood pressure levels are within good range.

  4. And we’re happy that you’re happy. :)) Kazu and I have been so much happier than before too, especially since taking that trip back home together in March.

  5. I’m happy to celebrate the second birthday together with you 🙂 I hope you enjoyed that small impromptu do and I’m sorry for not getting you any gift, at least not yet.. It’s easier to get gifts for women lah!

    1. Thanks, Baby. You don’t have to get me anything. Having you around is enough for me already 😉
