I don't plan to write out an emotional post, especially when its' a Food & Travel blog. But, I do have to say that I am thankful that I turned 22.
It was not the best and most memorable birthday I have ever gone through. I personally think that birthdays should be festive, fun, surprising, and special. And, yet, I didn't have any of that during this year's birthday. It got to the point where it hit rockbottom and I couldn't help but to fake smile and wish that the day would end soon, hence the reason why I slept for almost twelve hours straight during the day even though that it was school day.
But, despite all that, I am thankful..
I am thankful for the fact that I didn't have to go through the transition of November 22nd to November 23rd alone, followed by your video call and the adorable, "I'm sorry I don't have any cake or birthday present," whilst lighting a fire from a lighter and told me to make a wish. Nothing beats the simplicity of a loved one remembering your birthday.
I am thankful for the effort of a close friend to send me a birthday greeting with a picture of me sleeping and her hand holding out a note with "HBD UNA" written on it. Despite her tight schedule, she managed to slip in a minute to wish me a happy birthday and a prosperous years ahead.
I am thankful the birthday salutation from my juniors and the last minute birthday cake and surprises. I was overwhelmed I stopped my Crystal Maiden from hitting all the creeps that can get me coins to buy me Black King Bar. I ended up losing the match, but nothing beats Jamrud's Selamat Ulang Tahun being sang to you on your birthday. Oh, and did I mention cake? A very creative cake, I have to say!
Thank, you. :)
