Birthday Celebratory Lunch

Wanting to just go out and have some fun I met my cousin Sujith at a coffeeshop at around 11:45 for some coffee and we decided that we would go to Golden dragon for some birthday celebratory lunch. While we downed a couple of vodkas we had the following:

Crispy pork in oyster sauce

Shredded crispy beef

Main course was:

Dragon chicken, dragon prawns & Thai fried rice for me. He had Ribbon garlic noodles with the dragon chicken & prawns.

After 3 hours sitting at the restaurant we then headed to have some ice cream sundaes. Mine was Black forest and he had the Rocky road!

Happy 37th Birthday To Me

Ah birthdays. What are they good for? A reminder of the deadly passing of time that you are unable to do anything about – stop, reverse or even slow down! A reminder to party like there’s no tomorrow because you are slowly dying!

Or you can be grateful for another 365 years of live on this planet and give a toast to the previous years that have gone by. The highs & the lows, the good & the bad, the achievements, the failures, the disappointments, the pleasant & no so pleasant surprises and the loves and losses and even the hates! This is a day for reflection and inner search for those few strands of positive things that have made a difference in your life and hopefully, the things that you did that meant something to others.

I won’t lie to you, I hate being reminded of my age. I want to be younger. Damn it I feel younger but maybe I don’t look younger and I certainly cannot act as if I am young! In 3 years it’s the big 4 0! The dreaded farty forty! That’s just around the corner. And what have I done to enjoy four decades of existence? Nothing – not a thing! I have so much more to do, so much much more things to take care of. Damn!

Happy birthday Rosh.
