This year, it seems like everyone wants me to turn 20 earlier.
I’ve got Khong Hwee Ah Beng calling me two days ago while I was in class and here’s what happened:
KH: Ah Lian ar?
Me: Yeah, what?
KH: Happy Birthday!
Me: [???] Huh?
KH: Your birthday’s on the 8th, right?
KH: So today’s the 8th mah. So Happy Birthday lor!
Me: Um, today’s the 6th.
KH: Har?! Oh, pai seh, pai seh.
Me: […] Oh, it’s okay. Thank you!
The next day, slightly after midnight, Siao Jia texted me wishing a happy birthday. She remembered that my birthday’s six days after her. Somehow, something possessed her to think that she was born on the 1st. Thus, making her think that my day’s on the 7th. When I told people that, they all went :mrgreen:
As I reached home yesterday, I was feeling rather down due to a runny nose and the thought of going to school today. This is the first birthday that I have school. It’s a really odd feeling, I tell you.
I guess the mild depression was chased away by two lovely letters I received. One was from Pensie which contained a cellphone-chain (something like a key-chain but it’s for the celly) and a handmade card. The other was a birthday card from Hong Chon.
I should tell you what happened last year. Hong Chon actually got me a card but (according to him) due to fate, he could not pass it to me. Instead, he sent me an MMS and I did not know all these till I read his blog last month.
So I guess he decided to send it to my home this year
