The Epic Birthday Cake






So my husband, wanted to be all sweet and romantic on the eve of my birthday, secretly bought a birthday cake and successfully hide it. To be honest, I did suspect of "something" as my husband, out of his norm: suddenly sms-ed me that he's going out to refueled his car at about 10pm that night while I was ironing my scarf. However, I found him went back home empty handed and later when I went to the kitchen I did not found ANY trace of cake. False alarm I guess #perasanmode.


Since the 2018 school session started, too often I accidentally fell asleep earlier than my usual bedtime. It was a new routine to wake up as early as 5am and only managed to settle everything by 11-11:30pm. Quite tiring.That night, I was still awake till 11-ish pm I think, reading a book on my bed when eventually I dozed off and travelled deep in the lala-land..zzZZZ.


Back to the story (hihi); so the next day (which was on January 4th) we continued the newly routine of sending the kids to school, have a breakfast date together and went back to the school to check out twinnies during their recess time. Oh, we were still in our year end leave until 1st week of January, by the way. That day, we decided to skip visiting the girls as they were doing well on the previous two days of school. We went back home and decided to have a short nap instead. Hihi.


I woke up about an hour later, feeling quite hungry. I got ready and tried to wake up my other half. Instead of saying "yes, let's go out for coffee or breakfast", he told me, 


"open the fridge if you hungry" and continued to close his eyes.


"WHAT??" I told myself... "helloooo it's my birthday, kot. Where is my special breakfast?" while rolling my eyes and talked to myself. 


Well, long story cut short; I managed to wake him up eventually (can't share how :P hehehe..). While I was busy with my smartphone replying the birthday wishes from dear people in my life, my husband came down, ready. 


He asked me, " Have you open the fridge yet?"

Me: "Of course not, it's my birthday kot. You suruh I prepare breakfast ke? "

Him: "Hish, no lah. Go and open the fridge now.."

So I went to the kitchen, opened the fridge door and SURPRISED!! There it was, the birthday cake! 


BUT....


It was so horrid. Cake was out of it's pedestal, and three candles burnt and melted on the cake. 


"hahaha" I laughed. "Sayang, why the cake is so ugly??!" I grinned and brought it to him.

"Ugly...? You lah, I was trying to wake you up last night sampai melted dah the candles. And I accidentally slipped the cake a bit while trying to keep it in the fridge afterwards"

Me: "Awwww... so sweet! Hahahaha...like, seriously yang??"

Him: Made that :| face and rolled his eyes. 


Hehehehe....


Apparently, while I was busy reading the book (and eventually dozed off), he was busy downstairs; moved the kitchen's side table and chairs, arrange the flowers (no, not fresh flowers - existing flowers in my house LOL!), placed the cake and light the candles. However, his 12am sweet surprised went wrong when his wifey was so deep in the lala-land (read: tidur mati *shy*) that he failed to wake me up even after several attempts...and he went down just to see the candles already melted :D LOL!!


Sorry sayangku... 


Tak kisahla, ugly cake ke horrid cake ke. The action speaks louder, and it was a very thoughtful and cute gesture! Suka! Suka! #majorlove


aaaaand, definitely by far, this is the most epic birthday cake that I have EVER received. Takkan lupa sampai mati kot!. :)


THANK YOU, LOVE @ Mohd Fadzil!
