birthdays aren't really something we look forward to when we're way past 21 i think. or at least that's how i view it. it's cool to feel hey im a year older now.. but being 27, birthdays start to look kinda childish. and sometimes.. i think birthday isnt that much fun anymore because it's starting to make me feel old
but yesterday's celebration was different. everyone came and we had lunch and a very elaborate dessert (because almost everyone brought dessert) which was awesome. and we all had fun (i hope) and talked and laughed (without any alcohol involved because we dont drink at all.. who needs alcohol when u have a good sense of humor?) and when it was time for presents, im surprised to get 3 presents.
okay flashback.. earlier that morning, a thought crossed my mind. if the birthday present is a riddle, the right answer for my birthday present this year would be movie tickets to watch Transformers 2. because i still havent seen it yet.. and i really wanna go watch it at the movies. end flashback
there were 3 presents for me. one medium sized box which obviously a box of chocolates.. a big white box the size of a microwave and a white envelope with a Gawler Cinema logo on it.
the medium box is a box of chocs from pak liem & family. (4) owh.. the big Toblerone is from babu & renu. i got it few days ago on my actual birthday.
the huge box is from my wife ^_^. i was expecting the box to actually hold another smaller (perhaps really small) box.. but i was wrong. there were 2 smaller boxes in it. one the size of a big shoebox, and the other is a small soap sized box. i opened the smaller box but it was not a soap.. it's a DKNY MEN perfume (2). the other box was Megatron! no the box didnt transform into a bigass ugly robot (would be pretty neat if it did :D) but it's the leader class Megatron (1) from the transformers animated series on CN. it is awesome!!! best present ever
and the final present is that envelope. it's from irida,rebecca and rachel. i was really excited to open that envelope. could it be movie tickets for transformers? well it is better.. a $50 gift certificate for Gawler Cinema (3). so i can watch heaps of movies.
but Megatron is still my favourite birthday present.. maybe best present ever!!! this is one of the reasons i love my wife so much. she really knows what im really into
btw.. just to be clear, (5) in the picture are birthday cards
i really had fun yesterday. thanks everyone for coming.. and all that talk about birthdays making me feel old.. i was so wrong bout that huh?
