So i turned [OLD] on the weekend and had a good time despite my predictable annual life crisis around said time
Back to back parties this year (although only one of them was for me) so i just pretended that everyone was celebrating it lmao (because honestly we all forgot it was going to be my bday until like...Thursday. Yes, even me. I forgot my own bday. Which means i also forgot my annual bday giveaway ah fudge TIL NEXT YEAR).
Anyway the reasons for all the parties was because around my bday were the celebrations for Harmony Day as well as the island's Labor Day
Harmony day was nice there was a "pasar" petang at work (i quote unquote pasar since all the food was FREEE
) which i took photos of on the work cam and just stood next to the Lebanese hummus stall and ate all their stuff
, and then at night there was a pasar malam which i went to as mom had a hand in organising it. I hung out with my friend in the corner - we're both techies and he was in charge of the sound. There was a bit of panic at the beginning of the little kids Malay dance because we couldn't get sound to come out of the ipod, but as it turns out he'd TURNED THE SOUNDBOARD OFF BY ACCIDENT |D first rule of tech support: "have you tried turning it off and on again?"
The Labor Day night event after my bday was also pretty good - it always rains on Labor Day and this year was no exception haha. HOWEVER I DID GET FOOD POISONING AFTER SO I SPENT YESTERDAY'S PUBLIC HOLIDAY BEING UTTERLY PATHETIC AND LIVING OFF A DIET OF 100 PLUS, CONGEE AND SALT STRAIGHT FROM THE SHAKER this is also why this journal is so late lolz
It's ok i felt better enough to go to work today so there's that >u<
I wasn't really expecting anything so it was nice surprise when i got stuff
The parentage gave me 2 new Joker themed shirts to add to the collection (just...where are they getting all of these shirts from XDD), and i also got a remote tidy, power vac for the computer (SO HANDY), a hella nice scarf and some money from my aunties and uncles MEANWHILE ONLINE I GOT THESE FRICKING BEAUTIFUL ARTS
