We went to celebrate my dad's 53 birthday on Monday over at Marche. Mum booked Shangri-la Hotel at first, but dad wanted Marche because i brought them here once and i think he likes it. Either that, the bill was still cheaper than the Shangri-la's international buffet. Its SGD$72++ for the buffet on weekdays in case anyone of you here wonders. Mum was saying that they would probably blacklist me since i did not call to cancel afterwards. Oh wells
This is a picture of my mum and myself. People always mistaken us as sisters, but yeah. We are kinda like really good friends and we can talk about many things under the sun. I think its the small generation gap we have because my mum is still pretty young. But since she's hitting 40 soon, i think she's currently undergoing a process called menopause, so sometimes she gets pretty naggy and unreasonable in my context. Regardless, we love each other, but I hope this long term PMS stops soon
My dad, mum and myself. My dad was trying to be cute and didn't want to take picture and smile (much to the protests of mum and myself) & i need to stop smiling so widely - i hate my gummy smile!
But then, thank you Sijun for helping us to take the pictures.
Sijun who came over to join us for the dinner celebration. In case any of you starts to think that i'm a dependent girlfriend who invites my boyfriend to every family occasion i have - my dad extended the invite to him so i have nothing to do with it!
But then again, i'm happy he came haha! Even though he is probably tired from work, but he still came over
& then we were saying the unflattering angle which everyone has, and we did it. LOL, bloody hell i look damn ugly lah!
I look damn fat and damn disgusting over here omg. I hope i don't get this chin one day :x (at the rate i am eating now.. ok diet time)
Ok, so in case he kills me for putting such a unglam picture of him, i shall be nice and post a relatively not so unglam picture of him
Edited the pictures into different colors, heh. Isn't it awesome? Wheeee
& last but not least, my lovely family for always being there for me. My dad, who despite his grouchy face, always loved me and wake up damn early to cook for me whilst i sleep till like, 12pm every morning. & my mum, who despite having PMS periods now and then, still forgive me for every wrong i did and gives me money when i needed it. & to my sister, who despite always bullying me and kicking me down the sofa, brought so much joy to us and i can never imagine life without her now.
Family is really a important bond, and something that can break or make you when it comes to the future. You can't choose your family, so instead of lamenting or complaining or being envious or jealous, embrace the good of them and love them all the same. Even when they can really, be irritating at times.
But then again, which family isn't?
