Girls Talk - Best Birthday Ever

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

I have been absent from the Girls Talk scene for a few weeks due to some personal issues. I thought to take a hiatus for the month of July but found that I simply could not wait till August. I just had to blog or I shall go mad. So here I am, my fellow Girl Talkers, back with a vengeance :-)

So good to actually have made it still for the last topic for the month of July - Best Birthday Ever. So what constitutes making a birthday the best ever? I'll say! I can't even remember much glamour happening on my last few birthdays.

On my last birthday, I took time off from work that day to spend it all like this: Started the day by going to the gym. Drove around and did some errands. Went to visit my BFF around lunch time and ate some KFCs. Spent time a bit with her and then went home. Later that night, the family had its usual birthday tradition of celebrations by eating dinner out - at our favourite seafood place. And that was it. Not much hey? It sounds very normal, and ho-hum very boring.

And yet, I really think those are the best birthdays ever. Simple. Inexpensive. And filled to the brim with quality time with family and friends. Best of all, I had "me" time as well. What can I ask for more?

Someday, I suppose I'll want to have my balloons and cakes and lavish gifts. Maybe on my 50th. For now, I'll settle for the boring kind. Which reminds me that I have to be thinking about how to celebrate my anniversary today. Probably do it the boring way again.

For other birthday bashes and celebrations, check out Girls Talk this week!

    Hey, why not start with balloons today! :0 I guess when we get older, birthdays become a normal thing unless you're Tessa Prieto who always celebrates her bday with a bang! :0

    Sounds not boring to me, because it's my typical birthday celebration, too. :) I think that was still a great day!

    As for me, TURNING 28 ON THE 28th happens once in my life only, and so it was my best birthday ever! :)

    It's not boring because you did what you wanted to do and had some much needed "me" time. I did that too some of my birthdays. Just spent the day doing what I couldn't do on weekdays.
