We usually celebrate together by either going to a restaurant or having a meal at their place. And was I thankful that we had a private, cosy family affair this year because I was half-alive and had to keep sitting or lying down so that I didn't get so drained out from being ill!
I figured since this is a birthday post, I will write something about my in-laws here.
For both of you:
Here's to Werner.
Thanks for being such a great Dad to me. Still remember how you were the one who taught me how to drive in Germany and for being ever so patient with my not-fantastic motor skills! You're a man of few words but we all know that you're always listening and paying attention to all of us. Thanks for always being the handy man. Whenever something does not work around the house, its like we wouldn't call the technician, but you! I don't think there's been anything that you haven't been able to fix or repair! Also, you're always the person I can count on whenever I have an emergency S.O.S. situation like if I'm stuck in traffic and can't get to my workplace on time.
Oh Schwiegermutter. What can I say. You are the best cook ever! Love all the food that you make. And for such a great cook like yourself who likes what I cook, I take that as a great compliment! :) And you're so organised and neat! I say that with deep respect because I know how much effort it takes to keep the house clean. And you always seem to understand what's on our hearts. You're a great listener and companion.
So here's wishing both of you many many more healthy, happy and blessed years together. Hope that we can visit Singapore together again!!! And this time we'll finally get to bring you two around!
