Happy Birthday to my wife Jo.

What a birthday surprise!!! I am supposed to hide this birthday present from our son to Jo until tomorrow... it was taken from the garage and displayed at the bay window with Jo saying " it won't last until my birthday without me watering it since last week"
Sometimes it seems that I don't see all the special things you do to make our home such a special place to live. But, I want you to know I couldn't ask for a better wife and a better mother for our family. Happy Birthday to the most special person in my life! 
Since you have opened your birthday present from our son a week ago, it is difficult to keep surprises from you.. I bet ya' you did n't know this is coming... We are going to the Alaskan Cruise and visit our god-son Toshi and his family in Vancouver in April next year.

  3. Hi Phil, that's really very nice of you. Lots of men tend to forget their wife's birthdays.
    And that is really a beautiful present too. Very original.
    I guess you have a gold medal wife.
    Here's a belated wish for your wife, from Canada, 'Many happy returns of the day'.
    A birthday is just another 365 day trip around the sun, so enjoy the trip and keep a song in your heart.
    Best regards.

  4. Hi Phil,

    I just found your blog online. I am living in Canada at the moment and I enjoy reading blogs of overseas Singaporeans.
