The best comes from the heart

Posted Feb 27th, 2007 at 06:44 PM by

I guess being older (and wiser of course) deserves a mature thoughtful entry from yours truly. After turning 21 yesterday at 12am, I felt this sudden urge to do some government voting and read up more on the political issues of the world. Ok maybe not, but it has been one of the best birthdays I ever had. I can spend time talking about the presents but I want to thank a few people first. They are more important. (I will write about the presents another day I guess)

I had a birthday weekend where I spend Saturday with the best friend and Sunday with my friends. We had to do the small little party on Sunday because I am spending Tuesday with my family. Besides, I wouldnít want them to rush after work or school just to celebrate with me. Wow, is it me or am I suddenly so understanding and kind? Back to the point, I celebrated with my classmates on Monday and even though we have only known each other for 2 months, they are cool.

So I will just start on the actual day when the clock strikes 12am. Like Cori would say, I was getting spammed. But I donít mind since it was sweet of my friends to be online and some of them messaged me happy birthday. I must thank Cori and Dennis for the nice shared birthday sms. Oh by the way Dennis, Cori said youíre slow in typing sms. I was just wondering if thatís true.

Sometimes the best presents are those that come from the heart. Christine surprised me yesterday. Even though she couldnít be around at 12am my time since she had tennis lessons, she sms me at the right time. Thank you. She gave me a great present too. Iím not sure I can say it out that she wrote me a poem but it was so sweet it almost made me cry! Thatís blog worthy! Donít worry, I am keeping my promise not to show it to anyone. Thank you for accompanying me till so late even though you have school the next day and thank you for the sms and present. Youíre an awesome friend and I am glad to have you in my life in one way or another. I know youíre tired sometimes and yet you still keep me company so... thank you. (Ok this nice moment stuff wonít last so enjoy it while you can haha kidding)

Next present which touched my heart. Nichola singing a birthday song for me. She hates singing so I am truly honoured that she would do it for me. Or sheís just guilty she has to go to a party on my birthday! I really didnít mind because I know she would be there for me any other day. Just to let her know that I saved the singing clip, in case I can blackmail her one of these days. Ok seriously, thank you for getting out of class early for me and thank you for singing me a birthday song even though you were rushing out and.. thank you for being you.

Thank you to Mercedes for that kind gesture
Thank you to my fellow singapore mates in the singaporean thread
And to everyone else who wished me a happy birthday, you guys rock my socks!

Edit: Alex, Vivian and Mark (Benchie) should be mentioned too since they are so nice to remember my birthday. (Ok, actually Alex was wondering why he wasn't mentioned so here it is. ) I need to mention Mark too for letting me hear him on the mic. His Eric Cartman impersonation. )


*If you could go back and just change one thing about your life, would you? And if you did, would that change make your life better? Or would that change ultimately break your heart? Or the heart of another? Would you choose an entirely different path? Or would you change just one thing? Just one moment. One moment that you've always wanted back?*

    First thing, I'm really glad to hear you had a decent birthday. You deserved it.
    Secondly, awww! And you're sure you didnt cry even a tiny little? Maybe you shouldve turned the music louder. It wouldve brought in an even better atmosphere. Anyway, I'm glad you liked my present and didnt laugh at it (I guess ). And as I've said before that's the last poem I'm ever gonna write, so you better treasure it. And hopefully you're not gonna use it to blackmail me, too.
    Thirdly, I really dont mind the staying up you know. I always wanna be there when you need me. You do the same thing for me, too! Of course I wanna return back to you. So thanks, too for being an amazing friend, you know I love ya!

    i am such an idiot.

    because 1. i was unaware of the fact that it was your birthday. and 2. i didn't say happy birthday.

    so..

    'HAPPY BIRTHDAY!'

    I couldn't agree more with the title.
    And you're right, I do feel incredibly guilty about not being around for you but I hope you understand that it was just something I had to do and that I wasn't at that party for me but for someone else - the only person in my real life who I couldn't ask to do it some other time (if it was anyone else, I would have).
    Even though I wasn't able to spend as much time with you it certainly doesn't mean I care any less and if you don't know that already, hopefully something else I have for you will prove it.
    Anyway, I'm glad to see you had a lovely day and sorry again for not being there to spend it with you.

    You're very welcome girl! Maybe I type slow on a cellphone (that's why Cori should type it) but who cares since the message is more important

    Nice to read you had some great time with your family, friends and classmates I really enjoyed the Uno session with you since we had a lot of fun

    Re: The best comes from the heart

    Wow Dee! I bet you don't even realize it, but your comment just before mine is Comment no. 777. That of course is all comments on all entries added together for your Journal. But 777 How lucky is that, do you think? Of course, mine is going to be no. 13 on this entry, so I guess that's bad luck for me, but then i don[t believe in bad luck anyway. Actually I just dropped in to say that I hoped your birthday was really special.

    Hey I'm glad to have made you happy! You're right, I guess we both are getting pretty soft at heart, but to be honest I've always been this nice anyway.
    Yes, you tend to spoil everything for me! Totally ruined my surprise for you.
    You wish I'm writing you more poems. You just threatened to blackmail me! So no way, you get more.
    Aww thank you. But I really dont mind the staying up.

    Christine: You've always been this nice!? You got to be kidding me! I can list all the "not so nice" things you did, you're evil
    Hey it was still a surprise! Considering the fact, you told me you will never write poems again after I found out about your french hw
    I was kidding about the blackmail! I'm way too nice for that! no more poems I'm so drooling on your brother
    You're welcome But you know you don't have to stay up if you don't want to k?

    Steve: Now that you mentioned it, it IS cool! Especially since 7 is my favourite number and no worries, there's only good luck in my blog! It was a really cool birthday. Thanks for your good rep and comment.
