My husband doesn’t want any fuss for his birthday, he’s a simple guy that way. Of course we go out of our way to show him we love him even in our own little ways. This year my eldest daughter and I went to Icing Room and we got a small round cake to decorate especially for him. My daughter had a blast putting icing in different colors and choosing the sprinkles to use for his daddy’s cake. We are pretty pleased with the end result and our little girl was very proud of it. The birthday boy got a nice surprise when we got home
No one smokes in this house so we have no idea if ashton cigars are really good. It does make a nice present to my uncles back home when we go for vacation. Cigars for them and chocolates for my aunts and cousins, those are the usual items we get from the duty free shop once we are passed immigration. I don’t really get anything else unless it’s for my sister or my mom, they get perfumes of jewelry from me because I know what they like. I hope we can go back home next year, it will be fun to go shopping there and eat the food we’ve missed.
My sister wants us to go check if there’s any Vestax guitar center near our home so she can go have a look if they have a specific guitar her friend wants for her birthday. She won’t be buying it for her but her mom, my sister is just helping her out as she doesn’t know anything about guitars. It’s nice though that she is one supportive mom. Her daughter must really be good then, it’s not a cheap guitar to have. I do hope they get lucky and find one at a discounted price. Someone will have a happy birthday for sure.
My husband and his other co-workers will be playing a couple of songs on their company’s dinner and dance party in a couple of months. He’s been practicing at home on weekends and together with his group on weekends at lunch break. I’m not sure if they will need to buy Gretsch Guitars or they will just use the ones they currently own. Too bad we can’t watch them as it is an exclusive event for employees only, oh how my daughter will love to see her daddy play the guitar. She’s his number one fan afterall.
We are going to extend my sister’s visit pass this weeks. She was given thirty days by the immigration officer when she arrived here and she will stay a little over a week longer than that. Fortunately applying for extension is easy and can be done online. I don’t need icverify either, and I can pay using my debit card. We should know the result after office hours the next day. I’m so glad we don’t have to go all the way to the ICA office to do this. It’s a very busy place and quite far from our home. One of the reasons why I love modern technology.
In a few months the registration for new primary one students will commence and we will join other parents in registering our daughter to the school of our choice with hopes that we get accepted. There’s a lot of criteria involved in the process and at popular school where there are way more applicants than open slots for new students balloting are done. I’m sure all admin staff at the school work really hard so that there will be no errors and omissions or names and that everyone will be given an equal chance of getting accepted. I hope to enroll my daughter at the school in our neighborhood and I hope we don’t have to wait long before finding out the result of our registration.
My sister is looking forward to watching this movie when it finally hits theaters everywhere. I don’t know for me it’s one of those movies that will be nice if I can watch with hubby but it’s okay if we don’t. Since having kids we don’t get to go to movie dates anymore, before the baby was born our movie selection her animated films because of our daughter. It would be night to have a girl’s movie date with my sis though.
My dad called several times yesterday but I didn’t get to answer it. It was unfortunate because my eldest daughter was really looking forward to talking to him, she tells me how much she misses her grandpa and a fun conversation with him would have made her very happy. I don’t know when he will have the chance to call again, when they are at sea I don’t think he can use vontage phone service so I really have no clue when to expect a call from him. I hope that it’s soon, my little girl have lots of stories to tell.
My cousin recently bought a few medical uniform to use for her first day of work as a nurse at a local hospital back home. She was happy she got a good deal buying several pieces as she got the bulk purchase discount. Of course she is more excited to start working having waiting for the right job for two years, her first job was as a call centre but being a certified nurse is her dream and I’m happy that she gets to fulfill that dream finally. Patience is a virtue they say and I’m sure that all her waiting was worth it.
It’s great that my husband can come off work early on most weekdays. Taking care of two kids and keeping up with household chores is a lot of work and sometimes it leaves really exhausted at the end of the day so I love it when he comes home early and help out. He does have to work from home sometimes, he could be teleconferencing for an hour in the spare bedroom or maybe check his work emails over dinner. We do spend fun family nights together where we watch a movie or play a game so I’m not complaining.
