His 21st

It must have been one of the worst gastric attacks. Everything I pushed in, came out the very moment it went in. Even gulping down fluids was difficult. It tasted funny and if I wasn't careful, my body would reject that too.

For the life of me, I never could recall having such a nasty attack. I knew I had mild gastric problem, but didn't expect it to be so bad. The fact that I was almost full term made the experience a horrible ordeal. The whole day, I did nothing but just lay down on the bed, hoping that I'd get better soon.

Well, that was how it all started. Unfortunately, my condition didn't get better for I went into labour on the following morning. Silly me, a first time Mommy, I thought it was gastric, when I was actually having contractions. Mana lah I tau.....there was no prior experience to make comparisons with.

All that happened 21 years ago and on February 7th 1989, our son Mohd Faris Afandi was born. I also recall that day being 1st Rejab coz when my parents and my late grandmother came to visit me at the hospital, they said that they were fasting. And it was the second day of CNY that this bundle of joy decided to arrive. He was a huge baby, weighing 3.89kg!!

The rest is history and today we celebrated his 21st.

Happy Birthday Abang. Hope you will always have a good health, more career in life..and hope that more birthdays to come. Have a wonderful day and fabulous year.

Didn't expect you to have a 21 year old son. Talk about awet muda, you don't need any petua from the likes of moi.
Happy Birthday Faris, am sure you are quite a heart throb!

Cik Puan Kamil said...

kay_leeda said...

Dear Kak Ezza,

Precisely what I have been telling him about the solat. You know lah these kids, have to peringatkan walaupun dah besar panjang.

kay_leeda said...

Dear Cat-in-Sydney,

Them eyebrows?? Err...follow his Daddy lah :) Single lagi? This Mommy's gut feel says YES :)

kay_leeda said...

kay_leeda said...

Dear Mamasita,

Uhhh...kembang budak ni bila baca you kata dia handsome..heh...heh. He wants to reply comments here, but terkedu upon reading them. Aunties in blogsphere are too kind with their words he said :)

Thanks very much for the birthday wishes :)

kay_leeda said...

Dear NanaDJ,

Awet muda?? are not looking close enough lah. No secrets, what's important is to be yourself - laugh, cry, work & play. Life is short, so live life to the fullest :)

Hey..Maam, you ARE looking very good too, you know.

Faris a heart throb? you got me worried *wink*

Thanks for the birthday wishes!

kay_leeda said...

Dear Cik Puan Kamil,

Laughter is the best medicine yes!!
Thanks for the birthday wish :)

kay_leeda said...

Dear Tommy,

Kenapa?? Tak percaya ka? where got so young one lar. A few more years can withdraw EPF already mah :)

Me got no secret recipe lah. Guess I love what I do and all that chi is transferred back to me. Worry a bit lah, but most importantly, be happy (uhhh sounds so cliche, right??)

My leng-chai so shy already. Next thing you know, he will run whenever he sees Mommy taking out her camera to do the snap snap job!! Oh by the way, Faris wishes to thank Uncle Tommy for your wishes. The only rose amongst the thorns, he said you are and he's so proud of that :)

kay_leeda said...

Dear DR, byk pujian. Faris takut already :)

Many, many thanks for the birthday wishes :) May you & family be blessed too.

kay_leeda said...

Dear Edelweiss,

Yes dah bujang kan!! Dulu tok-tek je pi sekolah tadika kat sek 3 tu!! Auuu....sad to see them going so fast :( But at the same time happy that he's a fine young man :)

kay_leeda said...

Dear IBU,

Iyer anak bujang ku dah masuk umur dua puluhan. Awet muda?? Ayooo...mai dekat-dekat tengok daa....and you'll get to see those extras that are hidden nicely.

Men in uniform...ummppp...shyyyy...cannot tell here yah..heh..heh.

Thanks for the birthday wish :)

kay_leeda said...

Aunty TM,

Faris says many thanks for the wishes. Hadiah nyer mana?? This year he berangan for a new set of wheels!! Daddy nya will lose more hair..heh..heh.

kay_leeda said...

Dear Kak Lyn,

Abang Faris makan byk, dia jadi besar lah :) Kak Lyn pun has to eat more okay and you'll be as big as Kak Ya & Kak Na :)

Thanks for the birthday wish, Kak Lyn :)

Tommy Yewfigure said...

I like 'Rose among the thorns';) can get deflowered then how lah :)
