Today is my birthday but since I hadn’t told many people, I wasn’t expecting much of a fuss. I arrived at school to discover that my lovely co-teacher Sunny had brought a beautiful cake for the whole staffroom to share! Green tea flavoured with a layer of red beans. YUM!
Sunny also gave me a bouquet of pretty pink flowers, and socks.
I of course,busted out my camera (“take a picture for my Mom!”) but apparently I was the only one who heard “Cheese!”
I don’t recall if Gulliver had a birthday while he was with the Lilliputians but if he did, I bet this is what it would have looked like. 😀 At least the lady beside me is having a good time!
The cake was then hacked into chunks, served in paper cups, and everyone ate it with toothpicks.
“Korean style!” one of my co-workers mumbled around a mouth stuffed with cake.
The students soon found out it was my birthday and all day long they ran up to me and yelled:
Happy Birthday Carrie-teacher!!! Fighting!!”
What did that mean? Fighting?
I also got a lot of “presents” from the kiddies – pencils, origami animals, strangely flavoured candy, cards. It was great!
Here are two of the cards:
I think he managed to cover just about every special occasion with just one card! That’s supposed to be me I think. 😀
Apparently we need to work on the meaning of “Dear” and “from.” I think that face is also meant to be me.
And here is some of the candy:
All in all, a fabulous Korean-style birthday! 😀
