2006 Birthdays

a very IKEA birthday

“Sikander, I want to go to buy a winter jacket for your birthday together. I know it’s a bit odd but I want to buy a jacket you like. Sorry for being too practical but hey, we don’t want to get something just OK do we?”

We went to Yorkdale mall and got a nice Columbia Bugaboo winter jacket.

“sikander, I am so sorry, you know, I am so bad at making a surprise. It’s boring to get a birthday gift like this, isn’t it?”

“No, no I really like it. Thank you so much”

After winter jacket shopping, we headed for downtown to go the “The Decemberists” concert. It was fun.. if they are coming to your town, go and enjoy.

On the way back dooh called and said the first “happy birthday” to sikander. I didn’t know it was already midnight :(

After we got home, I told asked: “sikander, I am so sorry to say this, but when was the last time you took a shower ?”

“Oh no.. really? Believe me, it’s because we were in such a big crowd…..damn. Sorry”

While sikander was taking a shower I took out the new bathrobe I had bought for him and hidden in the superintendent’s office for a few days. I laid it out for him with a Happy Birthday card as well.

“Whoa.. lunato, what is this?”

Hahaha sikander “happy birthday”

The next morning, his birthday, we went to IKEA for their $1 breakfast. We had wanted to have IKEA’s breakfast for so long, but all the time failed to go there in time. Today we got up like 7 in the morning, and finally finally we made it. It was a nice healthy vegetarian breakfast.

Mom came over and we had a good time. We also went to T&T supermarket in Thornhill and sikander tried eel for the first time and didn’t like it. Bulkbarn was right beside it so we bought a ton of stuff from there as well. Going to bulkbarn is almost a tradition now haha.
