It’s my life…

When I was in KL, Mandy gave me a bag of what she said was some heong peah that she had bought recently when she was in Ipoh…

I did not eat it myself – my parents love eating heong peahs so I gave it to them and they certainly loved it a lot. My father said that of all the brands that I’ve given to them, this one’s the best! Thanks so much, Mandy.

But that was not all that she gave me. Inside, there was also this box…

…and a birthday card…

…and the moment I reached home from KL, there was a card that had come all the way from New Zealand waiting for me…

…from my friend and her family in New Zealand…

Sigh!!! Yes, it’s my birthday today…and since early in the week, messages have already started coming in on my Facebook wall and inbox.

Thanks so much to each and everyone of you who has in any way, big or small, made it such a wonderful year for me and  thanks also to Mandy and my friend in NZ & also her family and all those who have and will take a little time off to wish this old man well on his 59th. Yes, yes…I am old, as old as the hills but no, I’m not 90 years old yet and as the lyrics of this song go:

It’s my life…It’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
It’s my life…My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said I did it my way
I just wanna live while I’m alive
It’s my life

Cheers, everyone!!!
