BIRTHDAYS

Nope, my birthday's still a month away, but I just don't have anything to write to you right now, and I don't want to be redundant. So now I'll be writing about the most memorable birthdays I had...

Obviously my 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th birthdays I have trouble remembering, seeing as I was practically a toddler back then. THe only reason I know that I celebrated parties back then was because there were pictures (and I was crying in most of them). I think it was a tradition that my cousins put icing on my face, and I guess I didn't like it back then. And I am doing my best to make sure that that tradition continues with my nephews and nieces (such cute little devils they all are).

My 7th birthday probably was my first memorable party. I mean children who turn 7 normally have a grand celebration, right? I had 2 celebrations for this one, the first was in my pre-school which was like the best birthday ever celebrated that year (I shared the same date of birth as the school principal). And then one at home. In our street, I think I was the first kid to have a merry-go-round in my party. I also received tons of gifts (some of which were stolen by jealous kids... hopefully not from my family).

My 9th birthday, my mum became creative and threw me a surprise party. The first and only one I had. So that was nice. I have no recollections as to what else happened then, only that when I came home from school, there were balloons all over our place.

My 13th birthday I celebrated with my best friends in 6th grade. We ate in Pizza Hut, and that was fun. ink incesBut the most interesting thing that happened on that day was my first ever kiss...

When I turned 15, that was the first time I brought home some classmates to celebrate the special day with me. It was a riot, and of course so much fun... until some of my friends came back from a scooter injury.

2000 was when I first celebrated my birthday as a college student. There was a huge rally in Mendiola (if you must know my bday is on the 24th of February and rallyists usually choose that day to protest or celebrate the EDSA Revolution Anniversary). We watched this Russell Crowe film which was boring. But it was memorable because my friends gave me a surprise party (and gift) afterwards.

2002 was when I met the person who for the first time totally broke my heart. Nuff said.
s the blessing for our new house. I believe more than 30 of the people I work with came over to eat and drink. Some of which didn't even bother to greet me that day (tsk tsk).

2005 was the first time I celebrated my birthday party with my co-workers. That was cool. The celebration was for my birthday as well a

Last year was pretty quiet. On the day itself, I brought food for the team, which was nice, because I knew it was appreciated. Then I went out with a couple of friends, first to buy my Xbox and then we watched You Changed My Life. The party happened the weekend after when my 'barkada' came over.

**********
Wala pa akong plano this year kung ano ang gagawin ko. Mag bebente-otso na ako. Hindi ko alam kung icecelebrate ko pa ba ang kaarawan ko ngayong taon. Meron akong pasok sa araw na yun, pero for the rest of the week, pahinga ko na. 4 day weekend din yun.

Gusto ko sana pumunta ng Baguio, kaya lang tapos na yung Panagbenga by that time. Tapos inaya din ako mag-Ilocos nun. Di ko lang sure kung tuloy. Gusto ko sana makapag-ipon ngayong taon. Kelangan na... tumatanda na tayo.

Di ako inglesero ngayon, nirerepost ko lang yung mga luma kong gawa. Noong bagong blogger pa lang kasi ako, nagsusulat ako sa ingles para mahasa ang skills ko dito. Di naman nangyari.

Hindi ko alam kung bakit natawa ako nung sinabi mong ka-berdey mo 'yung principal. Ampf.

Gusto kong nagpapa-party sa bahay kapag berdey ko. Pero dahil kuripot ako, I'd make it a "one time, big time" thing, 'yung tipong magkakasama na lahat ng kaibigan ko from all sorts, may it be from school or work or others. Mas magastos kasi kapag hiwa-hiwalay pa ang panlilibre.

Tapos gusto ko 'yung mag-rent ng videoke. Haha solb! :)

A birthday post. Let me empty my memory banks.

I don't remember my toddler b-days as well. But, weirdly, I remember my 2nd and 5th b-days. My 2nd birthday was celebrated in our new house. I had a Lego displayed on the top of my cake. My 5th b-day was at the beach. I got an Armored He-Man with Battle Cat as a gift.

My 7th Birthday was also the most memorable. We had this think called "pabitin". I don't know what you call in tagalog. But I thought my birthday back then was really original. I got tons of Masters of the Universe toys.

I got really sick on my 8th birthday. So no party. I got tons of GI Joe toys.

9th Birthday was fun too. I got tons of TNMT

10th birthday was the first time my school friends attended and we played NES the whole day.

16-19th birthday. Me and my friends mostly got into alcohol driven mischief.

20th birthday. I lost my virginity with a Polish/Filipina. Most memorable birthday.

21st to present. Mediocre.

Ang susyal susyal mo naman noong bata! Samantala ako kahit kandila man lang sa cake hindi ako nakaihip!

Ang edad naman ay balewala lang, ang mahalaga ay yung nakuha nating mga aral sa bawat taong nagdaan sa ating buhay!

Meganun!
