Every 7 December, we celebrate our beloved loving inspiration birth-day. He’s actually not into making a big thing of his birthday, but his wife aka me, has a long-lasting infatuation with birthdays. Pour moi, birthday is oh-so-SPECIAL so it has to be treated differently from other days. Special doesn’t mean expensive over-the-top celebration, it just has to be different.
In the morning, I invited Raissa to wish Kris a birthday greeting…and she refused it. Adamantly too! Protesting and crying… Kris’ luck, he only received warm hugs and kisses from a girl in the morning but it was surely the best one
Mid morning, I texted him if we can have lunch together. He said yes, and so we had a semi-romantic lunch at a half-ready new restaurant in an unfinished mall nearby his office. Yet, I still thought we had a good time spending an extended lunch hour. During lunch I showed him a picture of his birthday present. Yup, just a picture since the thing itself, although already been ordered but is still out of the country and will arrive only in few monthSSS I knew that he’s been wanting to have this kind of item for awhile but hasn’t gotten to buy it himself so I told him that please keep on dreaming for a few months until it arrives as a birthday present from me. hihihihi
Later on, my family came over for dinner in a restaurant at 7 p.m.-ish and Kris arrived at around 8:30 p.m.-ish… just when I and the rest of us had a few last scoops of our meals. Ooopsssiiess….
It sounds like a lame birthday, ehh? But really, honestly I think it was special day spent with so much love blanketing it lavishly. The fact was we laughed and giggled a lot. The day finally ended with Raissa and me sang rounds and rounds of birthday songs to Kris, ending each song with hugs and kisses, on our bed.
Happy birthday always with love and admiration for a wonderful hubby and father.
And this is a pic (taken from here) of Kris’ birthday present: Bialetti Tazzona. An espresso maker I would love to have it for myself
Oh hi!!! Hey Hellooww!
Uh ohhh… yeah it’s been awhile, isn’t it? Why? Where have I been? Mmm let’s see…
November was an extremely busy month at work. It was not just busy, it was crazily chaotic to the bones. First, our President visited my office headquarters, a few days later at the Organization (where I hang my hat everyday) general conference, an election was held and approved a first-kind-thing decision which made it as headlines in national and international media, then the scrambling to face the financial impact, and towards the end of the month.. my Big Boss numero Uno came to Indonesia as a state guest. All in all… It was CRAZY. Pheeewwww…. Gosh, I was exhausted beyond imagination. Thank goodness, soon after the Big Boss left on the last Friday of November, I started my maternity leave on the very next Monday.
On the first day of my leave, I still had to come to the office to do my handover note, had a meeting with my regional Boss, sent out a few emails before I bid Adios, see you in April. I refused to make plans for the following days. I just wanted to enjoy the freedom to make impulsive decision.
The next day, Raissa and I had girls only day. We went to a spa and pampered ourselves with 1-hour full body massage, then she had a haircut, and I continued to treat myself with a creambath. I thank God that we live in this country where pampering is a luxury I can afford
And that’s how I entered December… Slowly but blissfully.
