A Little Surprise for Mom

Mom celebrated her 65th birthday last August 13th.

So, I made her this slideshow (thanks to YouTube’s Video Editor).

She got teary-eyed when watching. She’s usually like that. But I’m happy that she liked this slideshow.

It’s my own way of telling her that I love her despite of my mistakes in the past. We have arguments, but i believe it’s normal and it spices up our lives!

Love you lots, Mom!

Here’s a few pics from her simple birthday celebration:

That’s another of my surprises! My elder brother drew it (a portrait of mama and papa) a few years ago and I just got it framed.
