I'm officially a year older now!
Although it was a very modest celebration but I think I had a good one. It sounds superstitious but every year without fail, I have shitty days prior to my birthday. After all those dramas, hoo- ha and swing of mood, I was not much in a celebration mood.
I seriously expect to celebrate the countdown with Teddy by my side and yakking along with the bf on the phone past midnight as he is usually out station on Mondays. Yet I had a very big surprise when I received a message from him asking me to get myself ready at 8.00pm for dinner. I know it seems very mediocre to you guys but to me its a really big and sweet surprise as I really never thought he would abandon part of his job to be here for me.
True enough he came over, picked me up. We had a very fat dinner at a local steak house. Wanted to go star gazing later but we were too full by then and he was tired and still sickly. Instead we just dropped by his place where there were games and pressies waiting for me. It was a very private affair but I enjoyed every moment of it nevertheless. Altho he was the only one singing the birthday song and doing the elephant dance but I couldn't stop laughing and smiling. It was sweet, very sweet in fact.
We had a great night and true enough, surprises come sweeter when you don't expect.
What could be better than waking up with you bosses, friends and coliqs greeting you. Then I got a contract signed, walked into office with a big birthday card waiting for me on my table. Hours later, I received a big bouquet of roses from a guy friend. There was also a surprise from my coliqs when they walked to me with a big birthday cake after lunch. It was sweet, very very sweet of them.
If you think it has ended there, NO! at 3.00pm I received a call from office telling me another cake has arrived and bf got me another fattening dinner. When everything ended at 11.55pm, he held me tight and kissed me forehead telling me " I'm so glad to be the last to celebrate the last hours of your 25, the first to celebrate your 26th and the final person to end you day's celebration."
When I got home, I saw an envelope and a pressie from my folks and my bro.
I have another dinner with boss waiting for me next week.
It was a tiring but definitely one of the best birthdays I ever had. To be surrounded by people who loves you and care for you. I'm so grateful to be still here celebrating my 26th birthday and to you people who still drop by my blog despite I seldom update it.
I will be away for the next few days - attending The 16th World Congress on Information Technology
