My 29th birthday surprise…

My Birthday Surprise
See flickr photo slideshow…

At midnight, I was a little startled when my friend Andy walked into the bedroom with a lighted birthday cake in hand. He caught me while I was deep into blogging about the School of Informatics saga (coming soon).

Yes folks, I’m 29 now. I definitely don’t think or feel twenty-nine so I don’t try to make a big deal out of it. Frankly, I do worry whether I’ve gotten far enough in life, though I continue to work towards making it better. Hopefully exponentially better. 🙂

Being a gadget fiend, the guys got me interesting presents:
– Kelvin got me a Leatherman (a thief stole my old one)
– Peter got me an iGo portable charger for my various electronic devices
– Jun left me his bunch of Xbox controllers (sadly he’s going back to Singapore for good today)
– Penny sneakily got me a Calvin Klein wallet, which she says will make me look more manly (erm, ok)

Thanks to Andy & Nina for getting me the cake, and to Kelvin, Jun, Waihoe, Aaron and Peter for making today a special day for me. I later discovered that my thoughtful girlfriend Penny arranged this birthday gathering for me at midnight.

UPDATE: When I came into work today, Chris offered to work on my behalf. How nice! Do people take the day off on their birthdays? Alas, I’m working late into the night today…

UPDATE 2: Awww! Gotta love Siva’s cats and iCheerful’s Kitty iCard.
