Happy Birthday!


Photobucket


Today marks the 43rd year of independence for the Republic of Singapore. As soon as I've started living in Japan, I don't get to watch the National Day Parade anymore.


I miss those days that I'd stay alert by the window and wait for the fighter planes pass by. The sight and sound of them soaring the skies always exhilerate me much...


At home, it's also the celebration of the youngest child's birthday. Times flies, he's turned 18 today. =)

Happy Birthday, Didi! You've been such a great loving brother! May health, happiness and blessings be yours always. Love you ...


Happy Birthday Singapore! I waved our flag madly when I saw our representatives at the Olympics opening ceremony. You remain my beloved home. I wish Singapore everything the national pledge says, may you grow strong evermore. Majulah, Singapura.

こんにちは、スターダストさん
暑い日が続いていますね。
私はオリンピックを、見ながら、のんびり過ごしています。
シンガポールの独立記念日、おめでとうございます。
すばらしい、故郷を思う心は、いつまでも大切にして下さいね。

そして、ラベンダーのクッキーは、美味しそうだわ。
のんびりと、ラベンダーティと一緒に、ベルリオーズでも、聴きながら、時間を過ごしたいわ。

すてきな、週末を暑さを避けながら、のんびりとお過ごし下さい:)

梅子さん、酷い暑さにやられています! 梅子さんと愛犬は大丈夫でしょうか。 もう少しの辛抱でしょうね。祝福、ありがとうございました。

Derrick, you're 18, but you're always that cute toddler in our eyes. =)

Jade, good to know that you're back and ' safe '. Thanks so much for your warm wishes!

SAHM, I've FINALLY got to catch it this year! Last year's streaming was horrible, so I'm really glad this time! =))))

BP, yeah, my Orchids, my love. Thanks so much for your warm wishes. I thank the Lord too for you, and of course, you're in my prayers. Hugs...
