Today is the first day of school after a 1 week school break. I barely slept because my sleep pattern was off. I had to put a fake gun to my head (I used my fingers) to get me out of bed. Then I went into the living room and I saw this.
Yep. Real fresh yellow roses on the dining table from hubs for our 18th wedding anniversary. The last time I received flowers from hubs was in 1996 or 1997. Yes, before year 2000. The romance is coming back!
I still can't believe it's been 18 years. After 18 years, we've still not quite got it perfect and need to pause now and then to figure it out. I don't know how other couples do it but keeping your marriage happy is a lot of hard work. Yes, harder than bag-making.
As with our tradition, we exchanged gifts. (because I like getting gifts)
Hubs loved to live dangerously and gave this water container to me. I almost fainted. It turned out to be a joke gift. He gave me something else.
This is what I got him. Hubs doesn't smoke and doesn't drink but he does love his tea. So this big cup is for him to drink his beloved tea. The last one I got him was too big. Hope this one is just right. I hunted everywhere but couldn't find one of the right size that said Tea.
We had lunch in a cafe located in a bookshop. If your total is $25, you get to pick a free book from a few shelves. Our meal was below $25 so we didn't get to pick a book.
I had peanut sauce chicken and white rice. It was not bad except there wasn't enough chicken.
Hubs had laksa which is noodles in curry. He said he didn't feel like he ate anything.
But he almost ate his hair.
This is what hubs gave me - a T-shirt with a peace symbol made of kisses. Oh baby. The romance never stops! I look the pits though - so sleepy I slept on the train when I went home.
After lunch we went to Isetan supermarket and there were many food promoters giving out free food samples. You could go a few rounds and have a decent meal! I had noodles, rice, octopus, scallop, crepe, sweet potato, nuts, and lots of weird stuff. All for free.
Here's to more good years together.
