Guess what? It has been my 25th Birthday yesterday!! Whaaat??....
So, 25 years old. Still single and alive. Yup, that's come into my head right in the morning of my 25th birthday. I don't know what it's about birthday, but always, and I mean it (always), I feel like I'm more single than ever (as Chandler Bing would've say; could you be any more singler???, lolz. Not funny? Ok). At times, I found that birthday is one of those annoying day where you're reminded of who you are and at which points of life you're currently in which in my case, it doesn't really strayed much because I'm still at the same point I had always been... Single and alive.
To be fair, with myself getting older - I can almost feel that my youth is slowly leaving me behind (not like I really care, but I would loove to keep my youthful appearance as long as I can) and the clock is ticking out for my exit. Heh, what a lame realization to have on your 25th birthday (I know), but I can't help it. Awareness, another annoying thing I had and sadly, couldn't live without, but that a story for another day.
Anyway, since yesterday was my birthday and I'm kinda celebrating it alone, how would you feel if I take you on a little journey throughout my day? Are you interested? FYI, I never done this in any of my blog post related to birthday before, so this is going to be a special one. If you think celebrating birthday on your own is quite pathetic and lonely, then maybe you're *half-way* right. But I wouldn't say that it doesn't have it's own perks as well. Don't believe me? Well, just continue scrolling through this post.
So, are you guys ready? Here we go!
13 April 2017, Thursday (My Actual Birthday)
|10.16 a.m - Just another morning with my mom. She's driving. XD|
p/s: Did you notice the uncle on the motorcycle *sort of* photobombing us?
|11.01 a.m - Mom usually dropped me off around here before going to her dialysis treatment. |
I decided to tag along because it's pretty depressing to celebrate a 25th birthday alone at home
(my bro already went back to his uni and my dad is at work) and I would continue to worry about my thesis.
Anyway, so glad that I decided to take a little break or else I would have missed
this *flying* umbrella at Malacca Sentral. Pretty neat don't you think?
|12.49p.m - My 1st selfie as 25 years old. Not bad, huh? |
It's all about that lighting, guys (and some filter, haha)... ;)
|12.57p.m - My view outside of Starbucks this morning. It has been pretty quiet morning |
though you can still see people passing by sometimes.
|5.19 p.m - Home at Last. I keep on thinking about planting at least two new plants |
(preferably green) on my birthday this year and so HERE THEY ARE! I'm going to plant
the left one outside and put the right plant inside of the house.
|5.21 p.m - Conversation with My Dad, Mr. Chain Smoker. :))|
It's always nice having a little chit-chat with my dad after he come back from work.
|5.43 p.m - Having some light snack in form of cereal, low fat milk, and fruit.|
To be honest, I wasn't a big fan of cereal, but somehow it always tasted 2x better when I'm hungry.
|8.26 p.m - Dinner with my parents. So, for dinner we went to Marrybrown at |
Freeport A'Famosa since it's the closest with our home. So sad that my bro wasn't here.
Dinner does get lonely when we're missing one of our family member. :(
|Close view of what we ordered. Despite of the look, it's actually quite delicious.|
14 April 2017, Friday (The Next Day After My Birthday)
Just because your homie wasn't around you on the day of your 25th birthday, who says that you can't go out there to reach out to him? I, for one, see the importance of meeting people I care about and it didn't really matter to me if it's yesterday or today; as long as I can meet them. Better late than never, I always say... Knowing that my bro won't be home during my birthday, I had decided early on to set a time and have a belated birthday lunch/dinner with him around the area of his university and since The Mines among the closest one; we had chosen there to have a our meal and just hang out together as a fam. :). But, since it's also coincide with Friday prayer's, I took the 11.30a.m bus and we're able to get together around 2.40p.m. :)
|3.25p.m - Yep, right there is my homie :)|
My bro just got a new haircut. Handsome boy.
|3.26p.m - Right here is me with my Peach Tea.|
|3.28p.m - And right here is our meal. Two sets of Sundubu Jjigae with Spicy Korean Chicken.|
|3.29p.m - Taking a moment for selfie before eating despite feeling starving!|
|5.08p.m - After lunch, my brother also treat me to the Secret Recipe cake.|
This one is called New York Cheesecake. Delish!! We even got free tea (Darjeeling) since we dined in
(if you dined around 3-6 p.m in here then you can get the drink for free).
|6.00-ish p.m - More selfie with my bro after tea. This is the last picture before we pretty much decide to|
wrapped up the day.
|6.00-ish p.m - Here's another ONE. Haha.|
