6th September 2012 marked my 18th birthday. Yes, I'm 18 now. My birthday this year was celebrated without my family members around since I'm far away from the home sweet home. It feels different without them. Every year, we would celebrate my birthday together, my parents will treat me a dinner at luxury spot with delicious food and my siblings - we all eat like there's no tomorrow and take pictures and make fun and it was really happening. But this year was different :(
The morning of 6th September around 12am to 2am, a lot of my friends sent me text messages wishing me a happy birthday. I was really thankful because they know and remember my birthday. THANK YOU! The morning at 7am, I woke up for CTU101 class. I waited for text messages from my parents and my family. Zero message. I texted my parents "Ma, Ayah...Hari ni hari apa? hehehhehee" While heading to the class, I received a reply from my parents. YAAYY! They remember it's my birthday. As I read the text messages, tears are pooling in my eyes. I miss them.
Ayah : Ingat..Happy birthday...May the coming year be the most prosperous year fr u. Luv u.My dad asked what gift did I want for this birthday. I was hesitating but I said I want iPod Touch hehehe. He said, when I come back home we can go to the shop and buy it. heeeeeee, thank you Ayah! <3
Mama : Happy birthday n salam sayang...Mama ingat cuma terlambat nak wish.
Then, I walked into the class. My classmates sang me a happy birthday song. I was shocked as I didn't expect them to do that. Thank you so much BM111/1C! I love you guys lah ;) especially Sara aka Aisyah X, because she gave me a bar of chocolate. hehhehehe.
The day didn't end here. There is still a surprise! Later that night, my room mates made a surprise birthday party for me! Ya Allah! It was really a SURPRISE. I NEVER THOUGHT THEY WOULD MAKE IT. The story began like this...
My room mates aka my Terengganu family are Sha (Mama), Aida (Kakak) and Biela (Adik). Around 11pm while I was doing Bussiness Mathematics revision, Biela suddenly wanted to clean the room. She said the carpet nak kena kibas-kibas, banyak habuk. I was.. "Ok. Let's clean the room." And then Sha said..."time-time nilah korang baru nak kemas bilik kan? Bila aku dah balik baru nak mengemas. Nak suro aku jugak." hahahhaha. At that time, I didn't feel any awkwardness or suspicious. Then, Aida told me, my friend, AisyahZ was waiting for me in her room. I went to her room and she told me she was doing Tutorial 8 for Bussiness Math but couldn't get the answer. She asked for my helped. Later, she wanted to print out examination slip and asked for my help. I said "ok. jom lah masuk bilik aku." Theeeeeennnnnn, when I opened the door, I saw Biela on a chair near the door and the room was in dark. I didn't get it that time. Until she poured flour on me. AAAAHHHHH! SERIOUSLY? They sang me happy birthday song with laughter in between. I was really surprised with that. I had never thought they made a plan for me. Bila difikirkan balik, baru terasa the awkwardness bila diorang suddenly nak kemas bilik malam-malam. Sebelum ni takda pon rasanya nak kemas bilik malam-malam. Pandai korang berlakon! Boleh dapat academy award! lol. They bought me a cake. I was really touched with that. Thank you so much guys! I'll cherish this moment forever. We held a small birthday party in the room with bollywood and korean songs. Everyone danced happily especially. T____T Tak taulah macam mana nak berpisah dengan korg nanti :( The first semester is ending soon. Hopefully we'll get same room again next semester.
Anyway, thank you to everyone that sent me happy birthday wish via in person, Facebook, Twitter, and text messages. I really appreciate that. May Allah bless all of you too. Amin~
