Seems like yesterday when I first held them in my arms. Both have grown up to be smart and beautiful. Next thing I’ll know, they’ll have their own choices and peer groups, not wanting me at their side anymore.

The girls were born 5 days apart, Ishi was born on January 18 while my eldest, Deye, was born on January 23. No big parties this time as both had different wants, plus it’s not appropriate to hold parties until my dad completes his first death anniversary. Ishi wanted to treat her classmates with simple Jollibee lunch packs, while my eldest wishes for a new mobile phone as birthday gift cum graduation gift. We gave in to Ishi’s request while Deye’s is still on pending, but we will, few days from now…
