Happy Birthday to Me

This is a scheduled post and at this time later, I guess I would be eating takeaway fried rice with the hubz who had been at work till now.




It had been quite a bad birthday week. I knocked off from work without seeing the sun for four days in five and there were times when I just felt like I was no longer my positive self. I came home so tired every day that I could do nothing much at all.

Hoping for better days.

Happy birthday to me.

Edited to add.

Google really surprised me earlier in the day! The Google Doodle for today had little colourful cakes and I wondered if it was the birthday of somebody famous. Imagine my surprise when I moused over the doodle...

Google certainly made my painful, crampy and gloomy birthday a lot less gloomy and of coz, all the well wishes pouring in from every medium too!




As I got older, I think that birthdays are nothing at all. I mean I spent my last two birthdays at the specialist centre and hospital. I used to think that my birthday is one day in the whole year when I get to behave like a queen. I no longer think that way any more. To me, birthday is just another day. People used to say that I had so many groups of good friends that I had a birth week instead of a birth day. Well, I think it is still pretty much that way! Hahaha... Sometimes the meet ups for belated birthday  meals could stretch right up to June. Though to me, I would just treat these as get-togethers and catching up with friends instead of celebrating my birthday.

If you followed me on Instagram, you would have seen that it wasn't a gloomy birthday after all. Hubby made a dinner reservation at Sky on 57 Marina Bay Sands and said that I could not be cooping myself at home on my birthday.  It was one of the best fine dining experience we ever had!

Hoping for better days ahead!

  5. Poor dear!!! I always am hoping for better news from you, that perhaps the wellness fairy or the easy work fairy or the give-me-a-freaking-break fairy might sprinkle their dust onto your tired brow and your world would be instantly filled with pastel rainbows and choirs of Hello Kitty dolls singing a lovely tune in your honor. I will continue to hope! In the mean time, many hugs for you and know you have my every best wish and warm thought.

    1. I would love all these 3 fairies to visit all at once. It would really lift up my soul. Hehehe... Thank you so much for your concern and wishes, Rick. I really LOL like literally laughed out loud when I saw the part on pastel rainbows and choirs of Hello Kitty dolls. It is just too cute. Thanx for making my day and for remaking it again when I'm replying to your comment now.

  10. A bit late on this, but Happy Belated Birthday! I saw all your pictures on Instagram and I didn't know Google does birthday doodles! And the song is so appropriate! :D
    I feel the same about birthdays just being another day as I get older, but my friends always make me celebrate.

    1. Thank you for your wishes, dear Vanessa. I think since we are all on blogger, we are definitely on Google too. As long as you're logged into your Google account on your birthday, you would see the page being customised. Do remember to set your birth date correctly. Hehehe...

  14. Happy Birthday Jo! Love that google gif! As we get older, birthday's change. Just do what you want and what you love. I think they become less elaborate.

    1. That's a wise wish for me from you. I really would need health a lot so thank you very much, sweetie. I don't mind money too! Hehehe... but health must never work for wealth. xoxo

  18. I am sorry your birthday wasn't what you hoped it would be, but I am glad that Google gave it a bit of joy. Birthday's change, however, that doesn't mean they aren't worth celebrating- even if it is a personal quiet celebration just for yourself.

    PS-- I've actually only lived in Singapore for a little over a year, but have ben blogging for a lot longer (hence my international relationships!). That being said I really have enjoyed living here thus far!
    Also-- I went and got the info on one of the 5D places…. trying to plan a group excursion!

    1. Your words are very inspiring and they resonate with me. Thank you very much for your comment, dear. =)

      So now you are located in Singapore? For how long? I hope you go for your 5D reality escape game soon!

  20. Happy belated birthday Jo! I wish you all the best and may your dreams come true. I'm sorry to hear that your b-days weren't that amazing. Wish for better ones to come ahead. I feel just like you it's not a special day for me too and I'm not fond of my b-day.
