In a period of 10 days starting from 29 August, there are 3 birthdays in our family of four. Eddie's is today, mine was 3 days ago, and Sean's is next Tuesday.
These are the presents we received from Brian, the odd one out, whose birthday is in October. He had bought them when he went on a school trip with this year's new students.
The most expensive gift was this wooden alligator for daddy (buaya for a buaya :)). There's a wooden stick (in the gator's mouth) that you can use to glide along the alligator (or is it a crocodile?) and apparently the sound this makes is just like the sound of a gator.
The sweetest gift was this ivory-looking necklace, for me :) As Brian has only started getting an allowance a few months ago, it's actually the first time that he's had the money to buy us presents. I thought he made a very good choice. I wore this when we went for my birthday lunch.
The cheapest, but most thoughtful gift, is this marble tortoise, for Sean of course. The storekeeper had actually shown Brian a marble elephant. But Brian asked if he had a tortoise and happily, he did.
Thank you sweetheart, we love you, you're a wonderful brother and son :)
