My day was peppered with sms-es, wall-posts and emails, brightening the rainy day. The evening was spent with family over a simple but delicious dinner.

I feel so blessed to have family, friends, a roof over my head and time to pursue interests.
The gift and well-wishes started a week ago, with this from P:

E immediately laid claim on the older version.

She has been practising singing English and Mandarin versions of Happy Birthday, making us enact the entire process from sitting in the prime seat, to lighting the candles, blowing them out, cutting the cake and serving it on serviettes.  As a result, the finale was perfect and she knows exactly what to do:
Candles in candle holders and onto the cake.
I'm "fifteen" because we put out every single candle there is.
E cued us in for the song
Candles out in one breath.

Taking a photo of me, with guidance from J.

And this is the photo she took.
Enjoying the cake.
