We're gearing up for Malachi's birthday in a couple of months. The preparations have little to do with where we're celebrating or how intimate it's going to be. It has everything to do with preventing Malik from crying when people sing Happy Birthday to him. Malik first did it on cousin Mae's birthday.
Kala namin, na-touch lang siya.
But then Pao took pogiboy to a birthday party the following week and he again cried as hell. We were curious so we conducted our own test. It turns out, Malik's really not happy about birthdays (sorry, Mike if you think this is cruel) -
My theory is that Malik doesn't like it when the song slurs. So on his birthday, if you're around, let's try a jollier beat shall we?
