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…
