Except it’s not a very happy moment for me right now.
I’m not referring to the fact that I’m stuck at home during my Birthday due to the Circuit Breaker. I already took leave and am prepared to just the whole day to chill. To just eat cake and anything I want, dress up and take pretty pictures and just watch shows I enjoy.
The fact that my mother is in the hospital right now due to unknown pain is worrying me. Though I’m kinda glad that I bought a cake and we both ate it on Sunday. Our Birthdays are 5 days apart btw, her’s is on the 4th on May. And here I’m hoping that the force is with her no matter how cliche this might sound.
Two years ago, I was spending my Birthday in Seoul. Last year, I spent it at a Staycation in Sentosa with 2 of my girlfriends. Initially I was planning for a party or at least another staycation in one of the more atas hotel.
I mean it’s not every day you turned 30. It’s the year where you have to finally change that identification card. It’s probably the only thing I look forward to because I can finally change that picture which I hated. It’s also a milestone where you finally survived that quarter-life crisis. Though I won’t say I have a very successful life till date but at least I know what I want to work towards for the next 5 years of my life.
To be honest, Birthdays ain’t a huge deal. Although it is still nice to know that people remembered this day of yours.
If birthday wishes do come true, I hope that my mother will be ok and that the our lives can go back to normal soon.
Happy 30th Birthday to me.
