Happy Birthday Mr. Extraordinaire!

The best things in life aren't things, they are people, like Mr. Extraordinaire :)

It is his birthday today, I've got nothing to give but love (!), time and attention and of course the greeting card I've snailmailed 2 weeks back, I believe he hasn't received it yet.
The card that I've sent him :)

It is his birthday but I was the one who got a gift from him, a wonderful book - The George Carlin Letters: The Permanent Courtship of Sally Wade, with a gift note saying:
"Take the risk of thinking for yourself, much more happiness, truth beauty and wisdom will come to you that way."

This is how it looks when I claimed it from the post office


Trying to get a clearer capture of it with my scarf :D

 The book with the gift note ♥

I cut the note and taped it inside the book (unfortunately, the ink is slowly vanishing *sad*)


Last night, pre-dawn actually (or the witching hour?!), I've stayed till 3am, just to greet him. Our time zones are different, I'm 3hrs ahead. Tonight I'm going to eat long-noodles for his birthday, in our (PH) tradition, having noodles on birthdays means good luck, for the celebrant to have a long-life. Ouais, je l'adore tellement.

Happy birthday Mr. Extraordinaire! ♥
