I am in a mall outside of a Kid Land in Penang as I write this! My birthday is today. I am 47. I am lucky I made it this far! I am fortunate because I am still breathing. I have all my limbs. I am spending my birthday with the two loves of my life, in Penang, of all places! What else can a girl ask for?
Today was mostly for Emma. Being the only child, she loves play-dates with other children. Even though we were not able to arrange a play-date in Chiang Mai with these friends, since the family would be in Penang at the same time, we had to make it happen.
Seeing Emma happy with a big grin on her face brings me joy on my birthday. Okay, I did have to sit and wait for her, a lot, and escort her all over town, but what the heck! 🙂 She needs to be a kid with other kids! 🙂
Look at these beautiful happy faces!
I went on the yellow/green ones and screamed louder than the kids. They kept going back over and over for two hours!
Mad Libs at a local Malay restaurant in Batu Farringi.

On the local bus!
Kid Land in Prangin Mall! Emma loved it! She thought it was very educational! 🙂
So it is not all glamour and glitters; just a simple, long and ordinary day. Long because they were in Kid Land for nearly 4 hours and adventure zone for 2 hours! After all we are in Penang, Malaysia. One of my favorite places.
Happy for having had this day! I will take it, nothing less, nothing more. And a happy birthday to me! My little Asian Alice would say, “happy un-birthday” tomorrow!
