Happy birthday to my only brother, Joi.
I grew up and spent a lot of time with him. He's a year older than me and I have no other close person to play with, since the gap between me and my two sisters were like 3 to 5 years, and they were busy adoring Awie, Amy, Ella, Ruhil, and some other rock kapak groups. So, I was brought up to be quite tomboyish, wrestling, running, hiding, throwing, climbing along to ensure myself to be at par with my brother and his friends.
Well, he started to put a gap and kind of ignoring me when he went to secondary school. His friend always tease him, "sending his girlfriend to school" whenever he sent me off. He didn't even want to pick me up, and the bus stop just 50 meters away from my house! Hahaha! But later, all his friends started to call him bro-in-law lah after they saw "this" ugly duckling turned out to be not so ugly swan. Kahkahkah!
Since I went to college, in fact, until now, I seldom talk to my brother, but we both know that we love each other. He was my late mom's precious, though I am the youngest in the family. And he was, and still, like cats and dogs with my dad. When both of them lost something, especially tools and gadgets, there's no one to blame on...coz they are the only two guys in the family!
I have four Virgorians in my family. They would be, my dad, my late mom, my brother, and myself. The other two sisters are Aries and Capricorn. And amazingly, my brother and I, were born a day before our parents (don't look at the year la ha...) My brother's birthday is today, 25th Aug, while my dad's birthday, will be tomorrow, 26th Aug. My birthday is on 14th Sept, while my late mom's birthday is on 15th Sept (btw, my late mom passed away on my 18th birthday, when she was at the age of 43...sob sob...)
You know, when Allah took someone from you, He replaced it. One of my niece was born two years later, on the same date, that was 14th Sept. And Allah is GREAT, without a doubt, so He decided to bridge me with another Virgorian, that is my husband, who was born on 22nd Sept!
