Birthday surprise


Last night after dinner, I decided to make a cup of orange juice before I wash the dishes. When I opened the fridge door, I saw a familiar box and instantly knew that it was a cake. Hehehe, must be for me lar, although my birthday was last Saturday. Pretend tak nampak, took the el-cheapo oranges to the sink for peeling and to juice later. Then Mrs B came over, stared at the oranges...

Mrs B: Oranges? What did you see when you opened the fridge?

Me: Huh? See what? (i yam the great pretender, kononnya)

Mrs B: nothing (smile smile and went upstairs)

After juicing a few of these non-sunkist oranges, found that they were lacking in juices (pun intended) so I went to the fridge and took out a few more. As I was walking back to the sink, my eldest girl, Suzanne quickly ran to the fridge door. Stood there motionless for a while.

Suzanne: Daddy, did you see cake?

Me: Cake? Yes.

Suzanne: *quiet, then suddenly ran upstairs shouting* Mummy! Daddy see cake oredi! Mummy! Daddy see cake oredi! (repeat 5 more times)

Mrs B: *came down* You saw the cake already?

Me: Yah lor. Actually, I saw it the first time when you asked me. I just main tak tau only.

Mrs B: aiyah, no more surprise liao.

Me: Hehe, not my fault leh. Suzanne asked whether I have seen the cake and absent mindedly I answered yes!

Mrs B: Huh? *think think* Oh, I get it! Haiyar!

Later I found out that Mrs B gave a lot of instructions to Suzanne! I was supposed to wash the dishes while they prepare the birthday cake, and then Suzanne was supposed to tap my shoulders and when I turn around "Surprise!". Dang, I spoiled all those :P

We had a simple 1kg peach cake with strawberry toppings, bought from our favourite bakery. I think the girls enjoyed the cake cutting "event" more than Mrs B and I, hehehe. And yah, baby SueAnne stuffed her mouth with cake icing, what a mess!

That night just as I was lying down lazily on the big Ikea couch, Suzanne came over and whispered in my ear, "Daddy, next time don't see cake, ok?". I nodded my head, yup, learnt my lesson.

hahaha! Ever since Ian was born, my birthday is like his birthday already. He sits at the centre, he blows the cake and he cuts the cake (with my help). :)
Life is like that, isn't it? When we see our children enjoy the session, we are a few folds happier! :D
