Today is our 8th anniversary. Time fly so fast. It’s already 8 years. These 8 years we gone though so much experiences, so much love, so much effort. What we have today is the result of what we both try hard to challenge everything during these 8 years. This year also a special year, cause we are having twin boys. This is what we are waiting for.
Even this year we can celebrate outside, but I manage to prepare our dinner just like in high class resto. He he … I want to do more than this, but I am afraid siting outside have a lot of mosquitos.
Guess what he buy for me as a gift on our 8th anniversary? I know everyone cannot imagine of. So do I. I never ask for anything from him, expect bring me to travel. He he … I know since he is busy with his work, he can’t think of romance gift for me. I alway love to receive surprise thing gifts. Start from the day we know each other, only me make valuable gifts for him. What I mean valuable is the gift we can make by ourself. Every piece of gift from our hands and heart. For him is different. He alway buy me a little pig, teddy bear, flowers, Jewery…. however, this year is different he buy me 1 kg of gold. He he …. he told me that he want them to put number 8 on gold but they cannot do it. Anyways, he still cute to think of something sweet for me.

I alway excited every special occasion. However, this year is different. I cannot go out due i am so afraid of being pregnant. Being pregnant is a very excited moment and boring moment as well for me. Everyone warm me to be careful. I have to stay at home in order to avoids too much activities. 9 months is very long for me, but I have to do it.
anyways, I can manage a romantic dinner with my husband at home. It’s better than none. Today I buy a box of flower to my mom, mom in law, grandma, bong phorn, mei mei, Dalin and Ming Mao. This is all my beloved people. At the evening I ask pu vey to buy me candle and some rose flowers to decoration the table. Unfortunately, I can light the candle, cause too much wind.
How is my decoration look like? Not bad right?
My husband buy lobsters and steak for our romantic dinner
Guess what my husband buy for me? Teddy bear and flower. I still my husband still remember what I promise to myself when I was a teenager. He he .. I said if there is a man buy me a teddy bear at first time, I will marry him. Fortunately, at that is my husband who buy for me and he keep buy for me in some occasion. I think he might think about that or he think that I still love teddy bear even I am grow up now.
I also receive forever flower from my husband niece Daline and a rose flower from my youngest sister mei mei.
Teaching My Family About Outside Cultures
Every country has a different culture, lifestyle, and economy. My country is a developing country. After a terrible war, everyone started from nothing to develop each family’s standard of living. My parents were very patient and tried hard to create a good family for us. Now everything is changed in my country. A lot of outside cultures have come into my country such as clothes, music, lifestyle, and so on.
My family is considered as a modern family but we still keep some traditional lifestyles. I’m the first person who got an idea to bring some western cultures to my family. Once I prepared a birthday for my mother. Actually, my parents never knew their birthday because my grandparents didn’t care about this. So I decided to choose mother’s day as her birthday. On that day, I went to buy a cake and wrote her name on it. And I asked my sisters to cooperate with me. Four of us learned how to sing a song called “In the World Only Mother is the Best” in Chinese, because my family is Chinese-Cambodian. The party began at night, when my parents were watching TV. We all came down, lighted the candles and sang along until we reached their seats. She was surprised and asked if today was her birthday. We all laughed and I explained to her that today was Mother’s day and we wanted to celebrate it as her birthday. Then we told her to close her eyes, make a wish and blow out the candles. Four of us kissed her one by one. Actually, we rarely give a kiss to our parents since we are grown up. It doesn’t mean we don’t love them but we are kind of shy. My mother was excited until her tear dropped down. My father started to make a joke by asking when his birthday is. Then we all laughed out loud. This memory always reminds me of having a good time with my family. From now on, we started to prepare a birthday for everyone in the family, so every year we could hear six times of birthday song and eat six cakes together.
Birthday is a small activity but it brings us the sound of the laugh, a smile from our face, and a sweet memory in life.
