Alright so this keeps on getting harder with every passing day. And currently I feel like losing my writing streak because of staying so much out of practice. This is not even a writer’s block but as the day of aptitude test comes closer on the calendar, I can only manage to not to shut away from blogging altogether. I can’t even believe I have four posts overdue despite having their layouts ready. However, this one, really oughts to get published now.
So this is supposed to be a picture heavy post and I am doing this as a token of thanks and appreciation to my bestie-cum-cousin: Eraj! It is not very often that we are flabbergasted by one of our dear ones and near ones on an occasion which we want to get surprised at, (or at least it has been a very rare occurrence for me) but sometimes fate really has something warm in store for you on a cold November night.
Sooo..7th of November was my big day aka birthday but I really didn’t expect much from this one ecxept some good wishes from my go-went-gone friends whom I left last year as we graduated from high school (A levels) though sadly I didn’t receive any of those either (ab tou aadat si hai aise jeene mein xD) but I am really thankful to them for giving me an amazing bday surprise last year (can you hear me guys?xD)
So I was at my mami’s place on sunday, 6thNov when my mother received a suspicious call she would not give me the details of despite my continuous questions. Later I am told that we would be heading off to our khalas from here since dad has some business with khaloo. A few minutes later I am at my khala’s aka my besties’s place without the slightest of idea of what’s up. And at 12:00 am 7th November 2016 (as shown by my phone) I am summoned into the living room where my father stands with his phone in hand, video mode on and the rest of the fam standing in a circle ready to sing the birthday song with a splendidly scrumptious cake resting pompously in the center of the room.
Okay, yes this is exactly how it hit me, word by word as I put it. What’s more? The cake is home baked (credits to eraj), perfectly customized to my very liking including all those delicacies I love: perks, oreos, chocolate truffles…okay okay I’ll stop xD She gave me the leftover without keeping a single slice for herself. And you can have a glimpse of this red velvet beauty here:
But this was not all. As I walk into her bedroom, devouring upon my piece of bliss, nida aapi (her elder sister) and eraj conjure a handbag out of nowhere. Birthday Presents!!! but I am too red (yes I am blushing vehemently) to even take hold of it. I politely refuse to take it, refuse once again and again because honestly I am not good at handling so much happiness all of a sudden, but they have had it all planned, she has had it all planned weeeks ago! So like there’s no escape outta this surprise! They shove the handbag in my hands. I make sure to unwrap them only the other day! Here’s what they look like:
Tiny silver glittered packages of different shapes and sizes. Cute and dazzling≤3
As I unwrapped the gifts, I found them to be an amusing combination of small accessories I had been wishing for for so long. The smallest package had to offer my most favourite thing: RINGS! This is that one and only jewellery item which I love A LOT!
delicate adornments with the right amount of white and gold
Alright I remember musing endlessly on chat about how my golden marker dried up and won’t write anymore, with eraj of course, and this certainly came off as a very pleasant surprise when nida aapi insisted me to open up what she had bought for me. This gold marker is very special to me and since I opened it that very night, I remember how I jumped out of excitement:D
Eraj is a chocoholic, she is the truest of chocoholics while I tend to be a little particular about my chocolate preferences so yeah she made this perfect choice, not to mention chocolates are a must-give for eraj.
Ferrerossss yass, thankss Erajj!
Alright so this bigger package was really beautiful and I totally loved what was inside!
That beautiful floral art above deep blue glitter!≤3
Alright so this was the complete package from my bestie and her sis nida aapi. Later my brother surprised me by bringing goodies from his canteen and my uncle sent me a huge pack of candies so this birthday turned out to be very different from my expectations. I would specially like to thank Eraj for making my existence worth it. For giving me a reason to smile, for thinking this whole plan out. Thank you nida aapi for supporting her and buying me giftsss. I really love you guys. This whole event gave me a chance to reflect that Allah always balances it out some way. Thank You Allah(‘:
P.S: thanks for bearing with me my kindest readers, I m sorry if this was a bit boring, also I know my pictures are not the best but at least I haven’t contaminated them with any editing.
