Happy Birthday Old Man

12 Mar

It’s going to be my 23rd birthday in about (looks at time) half an hour’s time counting from the time I typed ‘It’. Evidence of procrastination.

My birthday is over. It has been a tiring day at work and I’m writing at 5:21AM Singapore time. It’s good, how could I’ve written a post about my birthday without experiencing it first? SO anyway.

I don’t give 2 hoots about birthdays. I never had a sweet 16, never had a ‘I gotta get pissed drunk’ 18 and never had a ‘I must make this a big hoo ha’ 21st.

That’s nonsense. I’m just too lazy for my own good, can’t be bothered about organising anything and attempting to make myself sound cool cos I don’t give a hoot.

In fact, I have been the kind who goes through a roller coaster ride on my birthdays.

Do they know? No, I don’t think so.

They should know! It’s on facebook!

I think they do. Oh they look like they do. How did they know?

Oh Oh, one of them is acting suspicious. What is he doing with a lighter, he don’t smoke.

The fact is, honestly, I never felt it was anything special. I’ve actually attended a friend’s birthday party who shared the same birthday as me. I didn’t tell anyone that it was my birthday till we were talking about when our birthdays are.

I guess to that extend because I don’t think it’s anything special and when friends and colleagues organise a mini surprise and make it special. It feels great because I know to them, it’s special enough to go through the trouble.

AND of course, a certain someone has made it a personal obligation to make me feel special on this very day and everyday. (:

This year has been exceptionally awesome. The series of events since end of last year till now have been great. Celebrating a birthday with the people who have been part of it is truly a wonderful experience. 2 cards and 2 cakes.

A card from all the awesome people I’m working with and a cake from them with an aptly chosen panda made out of icing to represent me and my eye bags.

Another card that very nicely written to sum up my year so far. Of course a favourite durian cake sealed an awesome night.

Oh and thank you for everybody’s well wishes on facebook and SMS!

Lastly, we all know what’s going on in Japan. My heart goes out to them.

Done with this post at 5:52AM and realised that I left the icing panda in my Dad’s car. Why do I have a feeling this is my last birthday? Just kidding. But no, seriously, the man has a baseball bat in his car.

    Happy birthday! Another year older, another year wiser! 🙂

    You’re really humorous, yunno. I’m laughing reading some parts of this post which you injected with some humor. And you were posting this so early. An early bird!

    Yup, I’ve just read what happened in Japan. I don’t wish to know more casualties. 😦
