Its back to work Tuesday again and I feel like this.
I was so excited for the weekend only for it to be a FAIL one. Kei’s Mum got hospitalized on the eve of his day. That alone is enough to cancel everything. (we did push through with the game and that was it. didn’t even get to the prizes) Kei has this notion that he can’t celebrate his day because if he did something bad happens.
That is why when we got together I try my darn best to make his birthday memorable, but every time I did, it really goes haywire. Every freaking time. His first birthday when we got together was to meet his family, which ended up just being me, Kei, his mum and his sister, his dad was having a headache and is stuck at home.. the next birthday (2nd one) I got him an i-touch, he was happy for a couple of days, then he rode a bus and got robbed at gunpoint. (The gift didn’t even stayed a week. FML.) Then, this birthday (3rd one) was this. (His mum was confined to the hospital. sigh. I dunno what to make of it. Is it a curse or something?! I am never going to celebrate his birthday again.)
Well, so much for trying.
Another wrong this time was my assumption of the little thing that is growing on the laundry area… turns out it is not a pumpkin, but a melon.
After a few weeks of looking after the little fella, its vine was snapped into two by the wind. Felt sad about it for a while and proceeded to examine the little thing. Cut it open and it is a melon. Smells sweet and tastes sweet too. Strange but still it is Ok I guess.
