- Delivery! To say the team is excited to taste these Greek wines from @nicolazaridiwinery is an understatement 🍷
- How time flies!
You’re sixteen already!
Going down the memory with the nostalgia of how you were born and being the first child I had to do the co-parenting thing with Mum and Dad.
Before you were born, I had the “Big sister” role, when you came along, my big sister role upgraded to “motherhood”
To imagine that in the last sixteen years you have somehow helped me understand how much work it is to be a mother in this society. How mothers have to learn to share their love equally amongst their children - With you I have walked the journey of being a mother; I now understand the saying that ‘you do not have to conceive a child to perform the role of a mother’ - how you have my Mumu button and how somehow without realizing it many times, I have learned to prioritize you and your needs above mine.
Happy birthday 🎉🎁🎂🎈🎊 Oluwadamilare Oluwadamilola Okanlawa Hassan OLUWA today you hit sixteen and at the brink of Adulthood, it is really challenging coming up with birthday wishes for you because realistically, we want the best for you every day.
Yet, I want you to know that we are here for you, we are praying 🙏🏽 for you today like always, May the good Lord ease your journey and make the odds continually be in your favour 🙏🏽😇

- Dram Review: SMWS 35.188 Glen Moray “A Complex Delight”
[55.2%・25 Years Old・Bottled in 2018・SMWS Bottling・Single Cask Release of 222 Bottles]
Bourbon char and creamy vanilla wrapped in a tropical perfume. Spirit-y but still rather poised as a deeper floral note develops.
Palate & Finish:
Honeydew nicely transitions to more of a floral presence, a chewy mouthfeel of milk chocolate and liquor soaked cherries.
Dark alluring cherries in the finish dressed in chocolate dust, the spirit-y notes continue..
One of those ones that shines from the distillery and certainly one of the better ones bottled by the Society in the past few years, rather on point..
- When I get tired of studying after work, I think about how hard my dad worked to get to where he is.
He is a refugee from the Vietnam war and successfully fled communism (Fuck Communism!). He worked part-time and went college full-time with a wife and two kids (my sister and me). This was in his early 20s! He eventually graduated, became an electrical engineer, worked his ass off to bring his family to Canada, and later on he legally immigrated to the U.S. in hopes to give us a better opportunity in life.
Some of my friends tell me they're impressed with the fact I am working full-time, going school part-time, on a junior board for a charity, but I honestly think I am the Netflix live action version of my dad lol. Work, wife, kids, and a full-time college course load? English isn't even his first language... Lol shit I don't think I could tie his shoes when it comes to the burdens he carried, but then again I doubt many of us could do what our parents did.
Anyways, to get to the point, shout out to my dad for scheduling his work trip to be here for my birthday last weekend. Love ya, Ba!
