Halley did a surprise birthday celebration for me after we go together. He told me that he wanted to do something extra special for me - to make up for all my birthdays that he has missed out on. He would not let out on any details on what the surprise was going to be, even with all my pestering.
A month after my birthday, we met up for lunch after church as usual. Then, all of a sudden, he said that there was something wrong with his car and that he needed to stop at some neighbourhood parking area. I did not suspect anything, and was actually checking on my makeup when he went to the back to check his car. Soon after, he told me to come to the back, that’s when I realized that today was not going to be a normal date day. He opened his trunk and there were a gift box and a bouquet of flowers. He had bought my favourite pink tulips which are so difficult to find in Singapore. He also handmade a special date card with tickets to the Sealife Aquarium. The aquarium had just opened a few weeks before then. Not only that, inside the gift box was a teddy bear with a necklace for me. And also a packet of “Happy Birthday” candies. Lastly, he wrote a long birthday card for me which I appreciated.
We had lunch at RWS Malay Street Food place, then enjoyed our time at the Sealife Aquarium. The colourful fish tanks. It was beautiful with a variety of marine life. After that, we went for a nice dinner at Café Melba. I remember he mentioned that he was stressing out on choosing the dinner location.
He always wants the best for me. So he took much effort and time to make sure that day was a special one. Now that I think of it, I should make him stress out about my upcoming birthday too. Since I did the same for his birthday. I should enjoy it while he has to figure out all the details. Plus, he has to live up to the previous standard. Haha! *evil*
