Hello, June, my birthday month! How are you?
It just feels like yesterday when I was celebrating my birthday last year at Italianni’s, ATC, with my family.
Now, you’re here again, adding another
unwanted sum to my age which is *gasp* 32!
Yes, geeks and geek girls, I am turning 32 this year and I still can’t quite wrap my head around the idea of being in the 30s.
I still feel like I’m in my early 20s or something.
You know when I was still a kid, I used to be in awe of adults. They looked so sure of themselves, like they knew what they were doing and they had answers for everything. They looked so in control of their lives.
Now that I’m an adult myself (by age anyway), I can’t help but wonder where the heck did I go wrong?!
I am in no way like the adult I imagined myself I would be.
I wonder if in reality, were my parents just as clueless as I am at this age?
Well, I sure do hope so, or else I’m screwed, haha!
Kidding aside, I truly am happy where I am in my life and I couldn’t really ask for more.
I have a loving husband and supportive family and friends. I eat three meals a day and even more. We are paying for our own condo and have 2 cars.
We even have a cat.
I can indulge in overpriced coffee and tea drinks without batting an eye and go shopping whenever I feel like it.
I have my arsenal of gadgets most people would covet.
We’re not ridiculously wealthy like the rich and famous of course, however, in our own way, we are definitely #blessed. (Oh, no, I didn’t…! Hahaha.)
If I am to wish for something for my birthday this year, it would be to have a peace of mind, a healthy body and an enlightened soul, not just for me, but for Artie and my family as well.
… but it wouldn’t hurt to receive the following items on my wish list. Haha!
Lia’s Birthday Wish List 2014
#1 Samsung NX Mini
In mint or white. The ultimate and cutest selfie camera in the market now. ‘Nuff said.
I have a very cute Hello Kitty instax camera but this printer is just way cool! You can print multiple copies of the same photo, eliminating the problem of not having a copy of the photo when you give them away to friends.
#3 Pancake Lens (40mm f/2.8) for my Canon 100D
Because the 40mm and the Canon 100D are a match made in heaven.
#4 iPad Nano
I have an iPhone 5 from Smart but it’s only 16GB and it’s already full of apps and photos. I also want to be able to listen to the music whenever I’m on the go without draining my phone battery.
#5 A new phone, either Android or Windows, for my secondary phone line
My 3 year old HTC Chacha needs to retire soon.
#6 A trip to Japan
You know what’s ironic? I’m probably one of the most Japan-obsessed person on Earth yet I still have not had the opportunity to travel there.
It’s driving me crazy seeing the photos of people on their recent Japan trip and I’m burning with envy!
Well, I’m happy to say I’m saving up for a trip to Japan either next year or the next. I definitely don’t want it to be a budget trip.
I want to have the best Japan experience.
But I still wouldn’t mind a free trip to Japan ;)
Well, that’s it for my birthday wish list!
I also want to greet all the other June celebrants. Let’s have a good one this year, shall we? :)
