Happy Birthday to Me!

i love november because it's my birth month. but as november approaches, i'm always pressured and slightly on a depressive mode since i don't know what will happen on my bday. will it be special? i want my bday to be special always (even not on the day itself) coz as what one of the greeters told me, it's the first miracle that God performed for me. my birth. and with my case, it was really a miracle. hehe.

for this year, i just celebrated it as how i celebrated it last year. the only difference is dinner with family is just at home. but i love my bday this year. coz it was full of surprises.

first surprise.. the expected people did not greet me. especially this one person. kalimutan na! hahaha

2nd... unexpected people greeting me. fewer people greeted me this year, but there are a lot of those that i didn't expect. especially from bld. coz before my bld greeters are only maan, therine, johnd and the cosio siblings. and se34. that's why i was surprised when a lot of bld friends greeted me. then i discovered it was shown in multiply that i'm celebrating my bday. pasaway talaga multiply.

3rd... si Meyms pasaway din. she announced in the text world that it's my bday. hehehe. but it's okay coz i love the digiscrap that she made. and she posted it even if i was with her future bf. hehehe. thanks meyms! and thanks to my multiply friends.

yup, a picture with pareng jomar. hehe

4th... the gifts! dami. hehehe. aliw! i didn't think that people still give gifts even if there's no party. hehehe. when i got back to work the next day, i received a bouquet of flowers. and it was from my SE34 classmates: iris, mye, chel & tuz. super katouch! and when it was delivered to me, the teasing was "Tin, how much did you spend for the flowers?" hehehe. then a week after, i received a cake from iloilo friends. the cake was bought here in manila but the sender was from iloilo. saya! hehehe.
the bouquet from my SE34 classmates

5th... i got greetings from blogsy friends, like Richard. i was really surprised to receive a bday email from him. thanks for the virtual cake. and exactly a week after my bday, i received the package from Carey! i now have a Bacolod shirt! yippee!!! i love it! thanks carey!
shirt from carey. sorry for the picture.

6th... whenever i feel down, there's one question i always ask God. and on my birthday.. God surprised me with an assurance through a friend.

most of the gifts i received are food. and take note.. they are the kind of food that would really ruin your diet. and since, they are gifts, i have an excuse for not being a diet. hehehe.

for everyone who greeted me on my bday, thank you! for those who forgot.. hmph! i'll just wait for your gifts. hahaha. just kidding!

but to everyone, thank you so much for making my 26th year in this world fun and exciting. even if i have not met some of you personally, still I want to thank you. coz without you knowing it, you still made my life special. thanks :)

Sidney said...

I guess I am one of the people who forgot. Shame on me!
Anyway, a happy happy (belated) birthday.

Personally I hate birthdays. I am always depressed on my birthday... one year closer to my graveyard... ;-)
So I try to forget and I hope other people forget my birthday too.
