Earlier in the day, I had an idea and exclaimed, “Tonight, let’s celebrate your birthday somewhere amazing!”

She asked, “Where?”

I said with pleasure and pride, “The same place we had dinner yesterday!”

So this year we celebrated Ain’s birthday at a nasi lemak stall in Kangar.

Irfan was also on hand for the lavish celebrations

We had dinner here yesterday. Ain had a nasi lemak paru but Irfan and I had roti telur. The sambal that came with the nasi lemak was excellent. Perhaps, it was too much on the sweet side.

The moment went up to the stall to order a long line of patrons formed behind us. I was thankful we got there early.

Soon it was over, because it was just a simple nasi lemak vendor which cost us RM13 including drinks. We will return to have more food there. Maybe tomorrow night. Maybe not.

Happy birthday, my wife. You will always be nothing less than strong and true in your very being. Sorry I am unable to afford any presents this year.
