This sweetest wishes started my day: Short-duration video of how my boyfriend making his own birthday wishes. Enjoy! :)
Sara Bareilles - I choose you as backsound
At first, eventhough he already apologized for many, many times, I felt lil bit disappointed that he couldn't sing happy birthday song directly in front of me. But when I saw this video, I forgave him for not being beside me, on 12 am of July 4th. This little surprise is more than enough, right? :)
Few hours later after sahur, I went to hospital to attend MKDU class. I had been struggling so hard to survive. Beside feeling sleepy after having video call with him until late night, I had been feeling unwell. My throat badly hurts. I lost my voice the day before and had slight fever (which I diagnosed my self having annoying acute pharyngitis) that made me really, really wanted to skip class. But thank God, I survived.
I'd been in bed all day because this sore throat, coughing and headache. Believe it or not, I took a nap for...mmm..about...5 hours? :/
Still feeling (lil bit..really, just a lil bit) disappointed for not-coming-home boyfriend, I woke up and went downstairs to living room. There, I found my lovely and beloved little sister brought me birthday present. She got me a backpack which is just similar to hers (which I gave her on her birthday), but in different colour, in my favorite colour. She's such a sweet that she wants me to wear the same backpack as hers so we look like twins. My little sister. :)
My little sister, Akiko, whom I had infected same virus to, so we both caught flu.
Thank you for not putting candles of number on my birthday cake. Hahahahahahaha.
Love you dedeeek...
I had iftar (break-fasting) dinner at a restaurant in middle of town. I was enjoying my chicken corn soup when I saw this cute little girl..not..this cute mommy carrying cuter daugther in her arms. Thank you baby Cinta for coming to celebrate!
Emma and her daughter, Cinta. Emma is my best friend since first day of college. I'd seen her ups and downs, and I'm happy to see her now surrounded by happiness. Let's make wish together, baby Cinta!
And when I got home.... Look who's been there! :)
It's undescribable feeling that you've been longing for someone and Boom, he is here. The one who stand up with me since beginning. Thank you for still wanting me eventhough I'm that uneasy to deal with. I'm grateful for yout ability to compete my Alay-ness. :p You're the sunshine in my sky, you're the rainbow after the hard rain, and you're the silver lining in darkest cloud. (Cie....) Your availability for 24 hours means a lot to me. You always tell to dream high, but never forget to remind me to work hard(er than anyone else) to achieve it. To help me to close my eyes from what I don't want to see, to close my ears from what I don't want to hear. You, just like papa, always tell me to give more to others, to help more without expecting anything in return. To always keep me away from cruel heart. Thank you for being such a sweet and reliable boyfriend anyone could ask for. :)
His suprises never fail. Thank you for putting extra effort to make my birthday more special.
Pooh you! :)
He took a day off from work and came home to succeed my birthday surprise. I know, I'm a lucky girl. :) At first he had told me that he couldn't take days off to come home, but he is just being him, if he told me that he would come, it won't be a surprise. Don't be worry, I already forgive your lie this time. :p
And this is my birthday gift from him. He even consulted with a cardiology chief resident what type of stethoscope that suitable for (new) resident. Thank you dear, may with this new tool, I can learn better. Amiin!
Guess which type it is! :)
Also, I want to say my biggest thank you(s) to all my bestfriends who congratulate me in such a sweet way. May all the good wishes go to you as well!
Dear Olivia, I know you are bored to hear this, but let me say again, I love you to the back and bones, thank you for always being there, for not judging me and talking behind my back, and thank you for always being whom I can trust. With you, I learn to tolerate differences. I think we should show world how to live a life and make peace: that eventhough we're different, we can make best friendship works.
Hey soul sister from another mother! I have no words to explain how fortunate I am to have you, especially when I felt homesick during internship year. I love to listen to your stories, and I miss those quality time we had, just another chit chat times. Just remember that I will be always here, next to you, to help you deal with all the uncertainties and make peace with it. I love you Cwike!
Hi my fave pediatrician soon-to-be! She's the one who taught me that boiled broccoli tastes (unexpectedly) pretty good. :p Thank you berry, berry much for your warm welcome. Thank you for being a good listener. Next meet up is a must!
I also want to thank you for all the sweet birthday wishes that can't be mentioned one by one here. But I'll try to make photo collage of the wishes. Thank you everyone, the same wishes go to you as well. :)
