It's the 18th of November 2011. I should start a countdown entry. Countdown to what? My birthday, of course! Haha...
I should have started the countdown yesterday so that I'd have exactly 7 days of party and mayhem to report (nah, just kidding). But better now than never at all. :) So I'll just recap yesterday's things and follow on through to the 24th.
Yesterday, 17th November 2011, was a good day. The day before was exceedingly tiring and emotional that I succumbed to it like nobody's business. But things got better as I rested and wrapped my mind around the excitement of my birthday. I can't help it. When it comes to my birthday, I become a kid again. Always loving the fact that no matter how shitty things are, my birthday will always bring my spirits up.
So what happened yesterday?
Well, the fact that I had enough sleep was something to be thankful for, as a start. Then I got a call from my Mom who told me that my niece aced her national primary school exams with flying colours. First, birthday present for me. It's something am so happy about because my sister asked me to give her daughter a pep talk to boost her motivation to go for greatness. Am just thankful that some of the things I did say to her got drilled through to make her work hard for her exams. Alhamdulillah, praise be to Allah... Next would be for her to get through the assessment for entrance to a private residential school.
Later that day, I went over to my optical shop in Bangsar to pick up a very special order. My second birthday present from my beloved parents. I LOVE it!! Not just coz it's exactly what I've been eyeing for, but for them to approve of it and decide to make it my birthday present. I can't wait to wear it at the Breaking Dawn Part 1 premier on the 23rd! I'll post up pictures of it then. Right now, it's still safely tucked away in it's velvety case. *so excited*
And I was feeling so happy right after that that I went over to Dorothy Perkins to check out the sale and did a spontaneous decision to get something there. Weee!!! I'm gonna wear it for work next Friday. Then, when I got home, I got a call from a friend who once upon a time was a little eye candy of mine, which made me even happier. I went to sleep feeling cozy. :)
And what about today?
Today, is extra special. Today I will get another special birthday present. Today, I will see my BEST-FRIEND-FOR-LIFE-WHO-I-LOVE-TO-PIECES... Mae! (I would be jumping up and down now if I wasn't at work). I can't wait to see her. I don't care how today is gonna be at work, I just know I will be spending precious time with Mae who is back here for a very brief period to prepare for her Boxing Day Wedding Reception in December. Yayyy!!!! I'm sure I will be talking to her till I lose my voice. Haaaa...
Gotta save some energy for tonite. Am so excited, I'd burst! :p
