And Then It Was His 14th Birthday

Irfan’s fourteenth birthday came and went. So did Irfan’s grandparents from Perak.

It would be easy to say “I can’t believe how tall and how far he’d come” but the truth is that I am not surprised. With the opportunities and facilities available to him here – as opposed to the Klang Valley where he would have to fight with the sheer number of students in school for available teaching and learning resources – Irfan is surely and gradually turning into a young man with the powers and abilities of a teenager.

When the pizza arrived it looked appealing and it was quite delicious. My personal criteria for “delicious” was fulfilled thanks to onions.

I took a photo of Irfan with Atok and Opah with Atok’s camera, which outputs images of better quality than mine.

Also, Atok used his camera to take a photo of Ain and I.

A coffee and orange-flavoured birthday cake awaited Irfan at home for him to eviscerate it.
