the birthday parties

' Happy birthday to you....Happy Birthday to you.....'
Wel, those were the days...when mums used to go through ol' recipie books to make the BEST LUKING birthday cake..and ya, it had to be YUMMY too :)
Those were the days..when the best friend used to get the 'honour' of knowing all the 'secret' games of the party..(as if it were some 007 plan!!..oh cmmon, it was no less)
Those were the days..when decorating the house with balloons and stuff was such a BIIIIG thing!
Those were the days..when none of us felt embarassed to wear those special birthday caps..

Those were the days when 'return gifts' were a fad!!

I guess..I am way too old..or perhaps feel so
way too old for 'planned' birthday parties..where kids are specially invited by sending 'hand-crafted' birthday cards...where specialised event management offices are called to 'plan' birthday games! What could be more exciting than musical chairs or passing the parcel or pin the donkey!

I guess I belong to the early man era :|
But I am happy to be there.
With my memories, I 'sign out'
and feel 'sad' for the kids of today.
