Six (!) cakes aside, it has been a lovely day - I’ve never really wanted for anything, and birthdays have never really been anything more than a family lunch and a couple of cards or two, so the entire day has been rather !? (because I can’t think of the actual word), complete with the best news in the world from the police.
So thank you, guys -
Cass for the early birthday (99.9% fat) treat (I can’t fit your photo in here sorry, but on the bright side you have an instagram post to yourself!),
Tharun&TDO for creating that (exclusive!) group named after the number of days till today and giving me cheesecake that every single person refused to kope (and offering a free manicure that I am so going to cash in on one day),
the marshies for ambushing me with 10001 Fenu Faces (-____-) and trying to mimic me (YOU WILL NEVER SUCCEED), complete with the hilarious mass Whatsapp panic the day before and little circular blobs of paper with lousy attempts at drawing three lines,
the family for the quick lunch where we never ever get a single group photo and Olaf/Fenu who miraculously looks like all the -___- faces that I’ve been trying to avoid, and that ridiculous inflated pig,
Mrs Tan for more cake and the first meeting we’ve had in forever (minus poor Fel, with her foolscap card with the left edge torn off because ‘the two holes very ugly’ HAHAHA) and ky’s paper wallet omg miss y’all to bits!,
Shaun for that hot-pink dreamcatcher/hanger star that I will never figure out how to make dammit, and those two other idiot boys that came all the way to play non-related basketball (that didn’t work out in the end HAHAHA) for offering to take the bake sale money and ‘LET’S GO’ drive me around to drink and party -____-
RC4 for the early October celebration after the one of most hilarious Anything Can Happen Wednesdays I’ve ever had (and for planning to parody Love is Easy omg even though it didn’t work out, it’s the sweetest thought in the world),
Jolene for the sheep that is too fat for five freaking balloons to even lift it up omgosh,
and everyone who actually took the time to drop a message, even all the way from the States and the Eeu-Kay (!).
Y’all are lovely beyond belief, and I’ll try my utmost to live up to what you believe I can be ♥
I hear ‘BOOM’ when they collide.
I shouldn’t be hearing ‘BOOM’.
Why the heck am I hearing ‘BOOM’?!
PHS Mega Sorting Station! Though my Mandarin was atrocious and I never ever ever ever want to touch another sticker printer for the rest of my life, it was a lovely (sweaty, gah!) morning made better by people who all look a bajillion times more glam than me in this photo, and omg I hope the aunties and uncles didn’t mind my butchered Mandarin (‘阿姨你要看那个药的什么东东吗?’) that much OHNO!
