Making A Fuss For Once
It's my Birthday.
Not today...but close.
I have always kept this day low key. Not that I am embarrassed or anything like that, but I guess, I have always preferred the company of a few and can chat deep and long. Hence, I normally celebrate my birthday through a week or over two weekends!
But I am one who actually love surprises. Last year Gadget-daddy surprised me with flowers! Wow! That's a big deal. I can count with one hand how many times that has happened! :D
Even on my 21 birthday,... my parents usually leave it to us to plan what we want to do and support us in that. Well, my 21st birthday turned out an incidental date with Gadget-daddy, then Gadget-pal. He wanted to get a friend from Kuantan to have dinner with us. She was studying in UM and staying in the hostel then, but somehow he could not contact her. So it was dinner for 2. ;)
This year, I had decided to make a fuss. This is really the biggest thing I've done for myself.
Really. I have planned a party for 10 adults, including Gadget-daddy and myself, and 8 kids!
The last big thing I did for myself was a lunch in Shakeys on my 14th birthday with my classmates, maybe 12 of us... We then headed to my place to hang out, and one of the girls actually learnt how to ride a bicycle at my place! It was a great day.
Up coming event, I have planned a simple picnic lunch, at our (the boys and I) second favourite hang-out place. I hope all will be well. I have a few surprises up my sleeves (did I mention I love surprises? :D) and I just can't wait for tomorrow... Ok, later today.
Packed some stuff into the car and gotta wake up early to make the sandwiches and potato salad.
Looking forward to finally meeting some of my blog buddies. :)
I feel really excited, like going for a holiday, like meeting a pen-pal, like cyberspace touching down on earth.
Interestingly, all who are gathering tomorrow have one common strand, and that's not just being on my blog-buddy list, but that all who are meeting tomorrow are actually Gadget-daddy's friends before you became mine. Another interesting thing is that all of you have worked with Gadget-daddy before. All except for one family, but that Mummy has known him long before working life even! Even longer than I have known Gadget-daddy!
Thanks, G-d darling. If it weren't for you and getting my blog started, I'd have a pretty boring and vegetating life. I would have no life of my own, but now I have a bunch of friends who "chat" with me and listen to me at any time of the day, or night.
My sanity and my happiness is restored. :)
See you tomorrow, my friends.
