Happy Birthday, Ashley!

I still remember it so clearly. Nov 13th, 1993. It was really late at night when my parents told me that is was time and that they are going to the hospital. I stayed up all night with my grandma, waiting for the good news. I knew my life was going to change. After 14 years of being the only child, I am going to have a sister at last! We received a call from my dad early in the morning and told us that she's here!! Nov 14th, 1993. I wasn't really sure how to feel in the beginning, but right now, I can tell you that it was the best thing that ever happened to me.
Wasn't she a cutie? She soon grew up to be a toddler and she was such a joy to be with. Really funny, quick and always made people laugh. Years pass by and so did many birthdays at McDonalds, A & W...

Went I left for the States to study, she grew up at lighting speed. When I left, she was watching Cartoon Network on tv everyday and before you knew it, she was hooked on MTV! Things that she wanted for her birthday changed too. I remember when it used to be Barbie dolls, then one year it was Cheetah Girls and again, before I knew it, she wanted a "Mrs Nick Jonas" t shirt! Whoaa...when did that happen?!?

In a wink of an eye, she grew from being geeky kid to being one of the bridesmaids in my wedding party! Doesn't she look all grown up there?

I'm pretty sure that before I know it again, she will be going to prom, taking her drivers license and going off to college! There are no words to explain how much I love her and both Kevin and I are really proud of her. Thanks Ashley for making me a big cheh cheh, that's the best gift anyone could have given me.

Well, we would like to say

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ASHLEY!!!
We both love you and please...don't grow up so fast lah.. :P

Lovely memories! Despite the stress of change u went thru (not easy being the only princess for 14years n to realize tht u r not the only one anymore), u were really wonderful as a daughter & big sis. U were at the hospital from early am to night 4 the 3 days helping me in my C-section recovery and moving Ash in & out of the nursery. Really thankful to God for both of you!!
Love, mum
