A Birthday...


Woke up to yet another beautiful day. A cool Sunday morning in August. Folks, it is my birthday today. I am sixty nine today. It has been a great life with Asmah, the great other half, I believe the better half; great kids and grand kids and those great relatives/friends both in Malaysia as well the worlds over. It has been beautiful and colorful all the years. I am as healthy as ever and enjoying every minute of my golden years.

To all out there be good and give as much and that includes Love that could be given with ease. Give with all the sincerity and I am sure in one way or the other you would reap what you had sowed all those years. Have a nice day.

A Very Happy Birthday to You, Pak Idrus.

It's not yet your birthday over here: it's 9:00p on Saturday night here, and 12:00noon Sunday in KL. So hop on a fast plane and get here: you'll be able to celebrate the big event twice :)

All the best.

Pak Idrus said...

Louis, thanks for the greeting, Well, it is one of those day and I am taking it easy. Great talking to you today.

Well, with the advance of science and the technology we might be able to enjoy our birthday celebration two or three time in a single day. Now with the Internet one twin n Seattle had to wait for his birthday wish, whereas his brother in this part of the world already celebrate his birthday. Interesting Eh!, that is our world today.

Have a nice day.

Wan, Ginny, thanks for the visit and the birthday greeting.

Glad to hear that you are on a holiday as well. I wanted to visit the Grand Canyon but it did not materialized, anyway it had to happen some other time. Happy that you are enjoying life as well. We all all OK here and back to normal life.

Thanks for the good works on us and that offer of staying at your place the next time we are in that part of the world.

Have a nice day.
