Birthday, Gifts and Wishes
Exactly a week from now, I will turn a year older. I don’t mind anymore being tagged as “wala na sa kalendaryo“. Nasa thermometer pa kaya ako noh?! Hehehe!
Last year, I celebrated my big day at the City of Pines. I’m sensing that it’ll be way too simple this year. If worse comes to worst, I might celebrate my day inside the four corners of my cubicle at work. There’s too much piled on my desk and I need to meet loads and loads and loads of deadlines. *sigh*
Two days back, my Mom handed me an envelope. I guess it was a birthday card from AMO-PDM (Archdiocese of Manila Office – Persons with Disability Ministry). And I was right, it was indeed from AMO. That was the ministry I mentioned in a past entry where I studied sign language and voluteered for the deaf. They never failed to send me a greeting card before my special day.
Whenever I get a card from them, I feel both happy and sad. This simple thought makes me really happy. Am just sad because, I haven’t been able to spare some of my time for the volunteer work that I used to do for them. Hope I can pay them a short visit anytime soon.
There’s one other thing that makes me excited now. My closest female bud and high school classmate, who is in CA, just told me that she’s coming to Manila end of this month to attend her brother’s wedding. And guess what she’s giving me for my bday?
Of course, not the girl! The swimsuit, that is. Yep, she just bought this sexy and skimpy Victoria’s Secret bikini for me. Yey, I can wear this in Boracay next month!!! Let’s just see if I’ll look a little like that model in the pic. My daily sit-ups don’t seem to be working for my fat tummy. LOL!
So, what else do I want for my bday?
Well, I didn’t get some of the items from my Christmas wishlist last year, so I’ll still stick with them.
And here’s one more that I really really like to have:
But if I can’t have that beauty, I’ll try to live with this one:
This is just my wishlist. I don’t think I will get to own all these items lest I buy them for myself. And even that HK trip that I have been dying to take is way too impossible to happen next week. Bakit ba, di naman masama mag-wish di ba?
But you know the greatest wish I want for my birthday? Just a dinner date or beach vacay with someone very special to me. That too, is a bit impossible to happen. (Paging _ _ _ _ _ _!!!)
With or without these gifts, I know my day will be darn special.
