Daddy's Birthday

We celebrated Daddy's birthday last month.

It must've been 10 years ago that we last took a picture together as a family.

Daddy turned 55 this year.

When we walked in to the restaurant, he bumped into his high school friend.

Drama, right?

And that uncle-something said,
"Wah, 55 years old ah. Time to retire lah!"


Is. Quite. Char. Dou.

So Daddy said, "No lah. You retire first lah. You're older than me mah."

Uncle-something bounced back with "Eh, we're in the same class last time what. I haven't celebrated my birthday this year you know!"

At this point, it was only polite for us to sit at the table quietly and pretend to discuss what we should order.

My mum insists that we take a picture together. There is absolutely no resemblance, as you can see.

I put this picture in because they both look so cute here =) Black and white is so old school, yo.
