Last year, October 13, 2007, was my most memorable birthday. That was the time kasi na na-meet ko in person sina Chico and Delamar, my two favorite djs!.. That was one of the most treasured moments that I have so far.
Yesterday, October 13, 2008, was also a remarkable birthday for me.
The day started really moist (‘am borrowing dRu’s words). Hindi naman ganun kadilim, the sky is still clear, but it was drizzling all over the metro. Good sign. Sabi nga nila, God is showering me with lots of blessings. Ayun, positive thoughts.
I tuned in to the show (TMR) early on, waiting for something. 6:00… masyado pang maaga… 6:30… 7:00…wala pa rin… hindi na ako nakatiis… so I texted chico and delle, saying:
RX sigh, mukhang wala yatang babati sa akin on-air, so might as well greet myself a happy birthday today! Naku dadami nanaman baggage ko nito hahaha.. pls play Love you anyway.. thnx
ayun, binasa nga ni chico ang text ko and they laughed and greeted me. Apparently, tama nga ang hinala ko nung una pa lang, marami ngang rushers ang malilito kung kelan ba talaga ang birthday ko hehehe (they played my song too! xcutex). And finally, may mga rushers na din na bumati sa akin hehe (thanks joeSpecialist… yung sa’yo yung narinig ko eh hehe.. thanks thanks). And that made my day (I thought… but wait… there’s more).
So pagdating ko sa office, dagsa na ang greetings ng mga kachat ko sa email (mga officemates ko na mahilig magthreading sa mail hehehe). And hindi rin nawala ang birthday song courtesy of my project-mates.
Then, during lunchbreak, pumasok na ako sa forum, and tons of greetings (exaggerated yan, pagbigyan nyo na, birthday ko naman eh) are there in the shoutbox. My greetings din sa News Headline ng forum! (which I was able to capture, and yun ang wallpaper ko ngayun sa PC hehe).
Then after work, I went to SM Mega, and check out some rushers at Krispy Kreme. Naabutan ko si vice Acer! Hehe… and he bought a doughnut for me (with matching brochure… hehe businessman talaga! apir!). It was my first, take note: as in FIRST, krispy kreme doughnut ever! (big thanks Acer!! You are now a part of the remarkable events in my life. naks). Nakakatuwa lang, kasi my first starbucks coffee is for free, tapos ngayun naman my first Krispy Kreme doughnut is for free din.
We chatted a while at hinintay ang hapong-hapo at iritable pero cute at perky pa rin na si KC (astroboy) hehe… and took a picture of us three, then left them there (thanks guys for the company!).
I went to Trinoma naman, meeting my college friends. We had our dinner at KFC courtesy of my beloved college friend Cherrie! Nabusog kami sa kwentuhan at tawanan at picture-picturan. Then we parted ways around 9:30pm and I went home agad.
Medyo nakakapagod yung last part of my day, pero super saya naman. May mga konting pahabol pa na greetings that night (matapos ko silang itext na “hoy birthday ko ngayun… langya di nyo ba alam” ahahaha joke). Suma total, masaya ako nung birthday ko.
Sa lahat ng mga bumati, maraming maraming salamat! (hindi ko na kayo iisa-isahin dahil nakakapagod mag-type)… Sa uulitin.
Understand how beautifully God has added one more day in your life, not because you need it, but because someone else needs you.
