In a blink of an eye, Irfan is now 15 years of age. He is more or less an adult, as I myself do not remember 15 being any different than 25 besides more experience by dint of being the latter.
Even when he was much younger, I tried listening and talking to him as though he was an older teen. These days we are able to converse with each other in a multitude of subjects maturely – even if Irfan, Ain and I are prone to sudden infantile jokes and giggling like babies.
It so happened that on the day of Irfan’s birthday, Nia, Cikma and Ayah Cik Farid came a-visiting and it was a far better day with their presence. Nia even wore a cap!
The last time Nia was here she saw a cat. She awaited for the appearance of Abang the Cat from next door at the front grille.
We ordered a small-ish chocolate birthday cake for Irfan.
Also, Ain made bihun goreng for everyone!
It was only the first day of Nia’s visit. More adventures were yet to come.
Happy birthday Irfan!
