September 22, 2008 marked the end of my 20's. Yes, it was my 30th birthday! And, having to put the first step into the 30's made me think of a lot of things. The thing that I thought most was the time that I have wasted for 30 years of my life - like spending 7 years of my life with the same job in the same company (don't get me wrong, I don't mean I dislike my job... hahaha), wasting 3 years being with someone that I eventually found out that it was far from suitable, being too extravagant that I did not manage to live in a self-owned property, and being not extravagant enough to travel (especially to other countries).

Well, amid the not-so-good things that was in my mind, I felt blessed that I get to live, love, and being loved for 30 years (and the clock is still ticking). Well, I do actually feel blessed with the sweet and bittersweet experiences that I had! Yep, blessings are what I should count, not woes.

Now, the memorable parts. I had spent a total of 5 occasions of birthday treats. Cool eh... hahaha...
- Sep 8: Cantor's group co-celebration with Ben
- Sep 19: PE POG group lunch (co-celebrate with Jessie, Whee Yan, and Chia Ling)
- Sep 21: Co-celebration with Ben (again) and Songxin by bball gang
- Sep 22: PE NPG group lunch (co-celebrate with Swee Aun, Weng Hong, KH and Ai Choo)
- Sep 30: Another co-celebration with Ben, by Andre, Gino, and Ian (to my dismay - in TGIF!!!)

Apart from that, I received:
- 33 greetings in my Facebook Wall and 3 in my Friendster Comments
- 10 SMS greetings
- Innumerable phone calls wishing me birthday

Thank you everyone for all your warm wishes and treats... ;-)
