Ones to remember
Strathmore School student Abraham Tuakana-natua celebrated his 11th birthday in style.
Most people would say turning 11 is not that big a deal but this West City Tigers’ fan turned 11 years old on 11.11.11.
Abraham who enjoyed a feast and a disco with close relatives and friends thought his birthday was cool.
‘‘It’s pretty cool to turn 11 on this day,’’ he said.
His mother Ruth said they didn’t even realise the date until closer to the time.
‘‘We didn’t think about it until about a month ago? It’s a pretty special date for a real special boy,’’ she said.
Abraham was born on November 11, 2000 at 11pm.
He is also one of 11 students in his class who are 11 years old.
The party theme was rugby league-inspired with everyone wearing their favorite league jerseys.
The birthday boy was even more overjoyed with his cake.
‘‘It’s a West City Tigers’ cake, it’s cool,’’ he said. ‘‘My favorite player is Benji Marshall.’’
Abraham also had his 15 minutes of fame appearing on the Good Morning show and also on One Network News for his special birthday date.
