"Octobabies" is a term I coined for those who are born in the month of October. I actually had to create a word for them because in this month alone, I have at least 8 friends who are celebrating their birthdays.
The first on the list is my very adorable godson Williem. His dad is South African angmoh and his mom is Chinese chiobu. The end product not too bad huh? So cuteeeeee............
Williem is officially ONE year old on Oct 4! Time really flies. It seemed only yesterday that he was just a sperm. Wahhaha........
Next Octobaby is Cheryll on Oct 7. Cheryll is the kind of woman men fall all over their feet for. Sweet, demure, charming and very pretty. Super chio and super saccharine. Out of every 10 guys who join our Friday chill-out nights, at least 7 will have a soft spot for Cheryll. After chatting with her, 90% of the victims would probably get diabetes and withdrawal symptoms, because they will crave to see more of her.
Irene came in third on Oct 10. I always tell her we should be secret agents because our birthdays are like ASCII codes. She will be agent 1010 and I will be 0110.
Irene is one of my life's most precious buddies. We went through a lot of hardships together, in terms of work, life, relationships, family etc. She's probably most similar to me in all areas - except for personality. If I am the fiery, hot-tempered siren, she will be the cool, levelheaded lady. She's calm, while I am volatile. I am ambitious and a workaholic; she likes to take things nice and slow and is easily contented. She is patient while I am rash. Many times, she was the alkaline that helped pull me back to a neutral state when I go off tangent. We are so polarized in terms of character, but yet we balanced each other out nicely and has formed a pretty solid friendship over the last 9 years.
Next up should be my colleague Jeanne on Oct 14. Bought her a little accessory - cos it seems to me that most of my female colleagues are very "accessorized". Earrings, chokers, bracelets, rings, necklaces - you name it, they are WEARING it. They are like a walking Chomel rack lor. Haha....
Gillian's on October 16 - the sexiest mother of two I have ever known. She is the super hot mom of my two godsons, Adam and Williem. She turns heads wherever she goes, and oozes sexiness through every single pore. Even after two kids, men still pick her up because she still looks so 'disgustingly' GORGEOUS!
Celyn, my good friend and colleague is a Octobaby 22nd. Celyn is one hot babe. Many of my male friends think she is sizzling!
She is also THE ultimate walking accessory turnstile hehehe.. Should have seen the number of fashion accessories she owns. But I must say she has really great taste and she has specifically told me NOT to buy accessories for her cos she is very particular. Die liao la. What can I buy now? Maybe a sexy g-string....a luminous lime green color perhaps?
Auntie Linda's birthday is on Oct 23. She is Leon's mom - and she has always been very sweet, generous and kind to me when we were together. I appreciate the love and care she has lavished upon me in the past, and I will try to send her a birthday card every year, just to let her know that she is still in my thoughts.
Oct 23 is also another painfully memorable date for me - which I shall discuss in another blog next time.
Wrapping up the month is Octobaby 26th Debbie! She is indeed the OLDEST friend of all time. I have known Deb since she is 11 - Primary 5 leh! We were in the same primary school and then she stuck to me like super glue for the next 4 years in Ahmad Ibrahim Secondary - yes the "chao ah beng" school. She used to stay like a few blocks away from me, so you can imagine how CLOSE we really were - literally and figuratively.
She's happily married now with a baby girl, who's also going to turn ONE next month. Yes yes, all my friends are happily doing their national service of having more sex and babies. I promise to work harder on the sex part. The babies can wait. haha....
When I talk about Debbie, I must mention Vivien because this girl has also been a great part of my life. I met Vivien when I was working in Yaohan - and that was like almost 15 years ago! She became my bosom buddy and some where in between those years, I introduced Deb to Viv and the three of us were inseparable after that. Here's a pic of the three beautiful babes of yesteryears! Wah - still as chio siah.......
Of course, marriage and kids change everything, and our lives - but I know deep inside, our friendship still remains. They will be there when I need them, that I know.
And that is the slew of Octobabies that have infested my life this month and I am going berserk and running out of ideas on presents to get! Never knew October is baby boom season until today.
For the rest of you who are planning to create more 'life', try and pick other months ok? January is good - ensures that your offsprings turn out to be a Super LaoNiang like me. It is also the month where we get bonuses and all so it's a fantastic month to have BABIES! :)
