Like any other day…

Last Sunday, the 26th of April, was my brother-in-law’s 67th birthday.

Every year, without fail, his daughter, my niece, working in Singapore would come home and we would go out for dinner to celebrate his special day but of course, this was not possible with the MCO partial lockdown this year. His daughter could not come home and no, we did not go out for dinner – all the restaurants are closed while some may be open for takeaways only.

No, we did not let it go by unnoticed…like any other day. My missus cooked his favourite chicken curry…

…for him to enjoy and she also fried another of his favourite, omelette with lap cheong (Chinese sausage)…

…too and when she sent the stuff over, my girl and I asked her to pass our ang paos to the birthday boy.

Coincidentally, their younger brother, the youngest in the family of four children, also celebrated his birthday on that very same day but being so far away – all the way in Bintulu, there was nothing much we could do – my missus did give him a call to extend our birthday wishes, that was all.

A few days later, my brother-in-law dropped by our house to give us these curry puffs…

our favourite from Farley and also their banana cake and butter cake…

…to reciprocate for the birthday treats and the ang paos. We thought the puff were not as nice as the ones before – it did not even look as nice. Maybe the one who used to make them had left…or had not been able to go to work owing to the lockdown and somebody had taken his place.

Anyway, thank you so much, David and a Happy Birthday once again to you two, the Ho Brothers. God bless always, cheers!!!
