14th and 42nd - A Birthday Memoir

Mond and K, my two God-sent angels turned 42 and 14 respectively yesterday. I wouldn't have made through the darkest days of my life without them. They were born for me on the same fateful day and were my constant reminder that God can turn a mess into a message, a test into a testimony and a trial into triumph. I simply cannot imagine going through life without them.

We had a simple celebration as usual. The night before the 15th, K requested for a Poulet dinner so we went to Changi Airport Viewing Mall to satisfy her craving and give her much needed boost for her upcoming exams. The two things she wanted for her birthday were Braised Pork Belly and a phone cover. Both wishes granted.

On their actual birthday, I cooked their favourite spaghetti which we ate for tea break after the mandatory candle blowing ceremony. G felt so sad that he doesn't have a candle to blow so we let him share his big sister's cake, using his no.5 candle which we forgot to light up on his birthday last month. He was over the moon but still a bit sad that he can't eat a cake or any sweets at the moment because his cough has gotten worst (we just came back for his check up).
