Gifts from the hearts...

Above is the Birthday Card created for my seventy one birthday. The five grand kids put their heads together and came out with such a unique birthday card, that one could never get at the store. An original card, a creative work by these kids and they did it with loves. I am indeed glad that these wonderful kids are our own.

The Birthday cake, two small one is special too; one with seven candles and the other with just one, making Seventy One. How creative! Instead of putting all the seventy one candles all over the cakes which might look messy, they had two cakes for that and only eight candles. Nice...

It was such a wonderful moment in my life. Grandma and the kids were there too, enjoying another great moment of our lives. I was delighted to get such gifts and from the look of it the kids and grand kids were delighted too. A joyous moment indeed.

Have a nice day.

Pak idrus,
With so many grandchildren, to be remembered and celebrated by them is really a very joyous moment. Would love to see that day when my grandchildren are a bit older do experience the same.

What a delightful celebration! What a clever idea to distribute the candles over two cakes to avoid overcrowding! Unfortunately if the idea is copied for my birthday, both cakes will be overpopulated :)

Happy Birthday again!

What a wonderful celebration, Pak Idrus! A unique card and 2 delightful cakes -- who could ask for more? My twin brother and I had 2 cakes for our birthday once -- in the shape of a red car and a blue car, side by side. Nothing beats having family around you on your birthday.

Strong family ties is one of the blessings that make up the Idrus family. You're blessed, my friend.

The cakes was indeed a surprise to me. I never thought that it could be done that way. Well, it was their ingenuity that create that special of the evening.

It is their world and they know how to handle it and I believe we don't. So do not worry about not having enough place to put your many candles. They would find a way that we would never thought of, to get it done perfect, always. It it their world now and we are just squatting and enjoy their love for now.

Have a nice day and take care.

Salam Pak Idrus

Those kids are really wonderful. What a nice thing that they have done for their beloved grandpa! The grandpa (and the grandma too) must have done a lot of nice things for them. Cucu-cucu baik pasti mengingati kebaikan atuk lelaki & atuk perempuan mereka. Begitu juga sebaliknya. Alhamdulillah & tahniah!

I think the plant that you had in your recent entry (August 20)is the soft/fine variety of bromeliad. Whereas the one that I had posted in my recent entry is the rugged or more hardy kind of bromeliad. I might be wrong. TQ & have a nice day!

Pak Idrus said...

Temuk, thanks for the visit and the good words on this event and my family.

We have nurtured love all throughout those years, first with our kids and now it has pass down to those wonderful grand kids. As they say what one sow so would one reap. In this case love in abundance. At his age been surrounded with those love one is the bonus of a lifetime and we, Nenek and I are enjoying it every times.

As for that plant I believed it is so and its flowers lasted for months.

Have a nice day.
