Like my parents, I am not a big "birthday person". In fact, we’re pretty low key about any type of celebrations. That doesn’t mean I don’t like to spend time with love ones and family – I just don’t want to make a big deal out of it.
Today is my birthday and a couple of good friends from work insist we go out to our favorite place for Pho. Jee sent me a very nice IM greetings. My best friend also sent me a nice email which surpassingly didn’t go into my auto spam mail folder. Then a nice family dinner with Alison and my parents.
I do have one correction to make. Everyone ask me how old I am and I have been telling people I am 34 – which is wrong. I actually turn 33 today. Maybe I’m blue for the whole day since in a way I do "feel" 34. Who knows. But thank you mom for correcting me. I am only 33.
