So, I’m officially 24 years old. It’s kinda feel in between of 18-23 groups – the age where you just discover the world, and 25+ groups – the age where you kinda start taking responsibilities.
For this year, my wishes
I pray for my well behaviour
I pray for hurting other people less
I pray for having a smooth 3 years of my study, and produce an excellent thesis towards the end
I pray for my mom and dad, my family and friends to have a good healthy life
I can still remember my birthday last year. I was doing my dissertation as the dead line was 7th of Sept. No party whatsoever, but I feel fine.
A year before that, I was on the bus to BTN camp, as I had to go through BTN and guess what, it falls on my birthday. I was fine.
2 years before that, I was watching Puteri Gunung Ledang on my own in Bukit Jambul. I kinda hate the story, but it’s okay.
I am getting used to celebrate it on my own, honestly speaking. It is a right time to reflect on my journey as human and see what’s awaiting in the future.
But this year is kinda different. I should say thanks a lot to everyone involved including people who send their greetings; and as mom and dad are here, it is so much special.
We had a birthday iftar at the Bruneians house. My house is small and cannot fit 15 persons. I told them not to get me a birthday present, but well, they don’t want to listen.
It started with a surprise birthday cake. It’s a Nintendo DS birthday cake with New Super Mario Bros game decoration on it. Even the Mario picture is eatable. I was touched. It was so sweet… I mean, the icing. Lol.
And Yasmin kinda acted on – she doesn’t get me any birthday present. And on that time, I was buying it. Honestly, birthday presents are tricky. I hate to choose present for someone else especially for their birthday. It is like trying to hit a bulls eye. I gotta choose a correct one, or otherwise it’s gonna be a turn-down for the day.
But they did hit bulls eye. They came out with quite a lot of presents and I really appreciate every single things I got.
Let’s see what’s first. I got cards, chocolate and chocolate biscuits – calls ‘Sharing’ which meant to be shared:)
Then, a mug of ‘High School Musical 2008′. I was like – I saw this mug in the Disney shop last week, but that’s gonna be ‘too old for me to have it’. But hey, I like it for the fact that I’m a big fan of HSM.
And a Disney box (which stored the HSM mug) and UNO – one of the addictive game I’ve been playing lately. So sweet – and I’m not referring to the cake anymore.
I also get a mug and a file of… er High School Musical with the cast picture on it. It’s Pink! Yes, Mahadi, it is pink and I’m sure not gonna bring it to the department. The files contains some 3-4 pages self-made greetings poster (I don’t even know what should I call it) contains their wishes and our pictures.
Honestly, the most touching gift should be the Lego!
Yeh, I know I’m being a lil bit materialistic here (Damn, I’m so easy to be bought:), but last time I was arguing with Kak Nur about buying Lego. I wanted to buy a Lego. She asked me to but this model (the one in the picture coz it is a nice looking car), but the price is kinda double the price of the other model. So I settled down for the other cheaper one. But then they get me this very nice 3 in 1 model. Damn, I do look like a ‘so happy kid’ in the picture. But anyway, thanks for the presents. Hope I didn’t left mentioning any gifts that I got.
Er… HSM mug, HSM files, UNO card, chocolates, chocolate biscuits and Lego; I’m so celebrating my 12th birthday instead! (And the Lego box even said that it is for 8-12)
P.S: Zeah, thanks for the one of the best present I have ever get, ‘you losing UNO game’:D Ha ha.
