It's been great!

I've come to realise I'm not as young as I used to be. Sure, yesterday was the symbolic advancement of age, but the past four days have shown me this body isn't made to withstand this much bashing.

My mum said as much as the clock struck passed twelve and I became a year older.

Still, if there's one thing I've come to appreciate even more as I grow older is this concept called friends.

I had a great bash and just want to say a little something back.

Thanks to my family - I actually passed the birthday mark in my parent's room talking to my mother, something I have not done in years. It was great.

Thanks to Richard and Ka Fei for that wonderful Manchester United DVD. I've never got one of those for my birthday before.

Thanks to the amazing people who surprised me yesterday, you know who you are especially Suanie who nearly made me emo. Also special mention to my "cupcake gang" colleagues. It was really a passing mention people!

Thanks to my very nice clients who got me a Birthday card!

Thanks to everyone who sent me an SMS, Facebook message, email or MSN message. Too many to name, but each one equally dear.

Last, but not least, thanks to my wife who bought me the most awesome birthday present ever - an ASUS Eee PC which was brought down from Singapore by David Chieng (thanks Dave):

My Eee Pc!
It's really small, the miniature sitting on the Eee PC shows you the scale.

Who knew growing up would be so much fun?

@Suan: aiyoh... inside the cafe very misty lah. It'a mirage.
@doopy: Yeah, it was a very touching surprise.

Will said...

YEAH ... Eee PC is damn nice... i installed XP before it is rocking wild!
Asus finally did something right!

@Will: Meh. I think XP slows down the Eee PC unnecessarily. But then again, that's my opinion.
