not just another birthday

a cold dip
a hot cup of coffee
a handmade sandwich

so i blew my last candle next to a waterfall.

that short note i left on my facebook had triggered some responses, like this one: "Sounds like u had a romantic ooh la la". it must be one of the most dramatic venue i ever had a birthday. and yes indeed, quite romantic. not only do i have one guy but a whole bunch of them :).

thanks to the raya holiday, my cell and some of their friends decided to conquer the waterfall at ulu yam. there were 19 of us. about 30 minutes walk, crossing 5 rivers (one about waist level), and 15 minutes of 70degrees climb. since i quit my gym, this has to be one of the best workout i ever had, beats cycling indoor anytime. my instructors used to say 'no pain, no gain'. forgetting all the muscle cramps, i am already fantasizing about the tight nice calves i will get tomorrow :)

i can safely say im actually happy this year. after some stormy years, it feels great to be able to see things in perspective again. i guess steve jobs best describe the voice from my heart.
'Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.'

facebook has its share of contribution too. the many wishes on my wall, calls and smses reminded me the many friends and families i had all around the world, you know who you are. thanks for making my day, more like my life, so much more meaningful. love you all. muaks.
