Yep! I am now 23 year old!! *applause*
This is one of the best birthdays that I ever had :) I couldn’t ask for more :) I am even smiling while making this entry haha :) Woot!!
Well, it all started on September 20, my birthday eve. I really prepared everything for my 23rd birthday. I painted my nails red and planned my outfit (at least close to red). I set my alarms and everything :) I was so excited because I wanted this birthday to be a bit different. Gusto ko salubungin ang birthday ko :) hehe
And so, I went to work. Everything was pretty normal except for the lunch and merienda. The September celebrants (including me) and the resignees planned to treat everyone. So I ate with them and had a good laugh/conversation. Before merienda started, my office mate invited me to go to my previous section. So I went there and just expected our usual chismisan. They told me to sit down in a chair. Then all of a sudden everybody started singing Happy Birthday, I was surprised :p they handed me their gifts!!!
I posted it in instagram but there were cupcakes, cute toys and a cookbook (they know I couldn’t cook a decent meal haha). I was really surprised and just did not know what to say :)) I just said thanks a lot! Then when I went back to my table, there was a cake waiting for me (given by the company). It was really a great feeling to receive such kind gifts. I was really happy and can’t stop smiling! :)
Then I met Jegs, Elaine, Auds, Neil, Jon and Marc in Trinoma later that night. We had dinner and lots of chismisan din (with matching iOS endorsement ni Jegs) haha we planned to go to Red Box but then hindi namin masusulit because they close at 12mn and it was already 10. And so we decided to just chill out in Coffee Bean! :))
And there, we tried to do a version of CUPS (Anna Kendrick). The plan was that Jegs will be the one who is going to do the cups thing and I will sing. Elaine will take the video. We were only able to do two lines of the song but it was really fun :) I hope Elaine uploads it :))
And even though there was no karaoke present, we still sang! Actually hummed haha :)) Jegs had this app called “Heads up”. Basically its like Pinoy Henyo but you have to guess the song while the other people hums the tune :) it was a cool game (thanks Jegs!) haha We had some interesting videos *ahem ahem* :)) We had such a great time!
Around 11:59, we started lighting up the candles of my cupcakes and they HUMMED “Happy Birthday” haha I made a wish and blew the candles (we didn’t light all of them). I am so happy because I welcomed my 23rd year here on earth with laughs and smiles :) My mom and tita texted their greetings, as well as my twitter buddies and instagram friends! :)
It was really an awesome start of my 23rd year here on earth and the day is just getting started!
Hoping for the best this year :) more laughs than tears and more friends than foes :)
So happy right now!!! Truly happy right now and I couldn’t ask for more because I know that a lot of people loves me and remembers me. They never fail to make me happy :) So thankful right now for having such people in my life :)
I sincerely offer my thanks to everyone who made me happy.
Love and hugs for all!
Happy Irisse (Sheep! Still can’t believe that I’m 23!)
