Ah the time has arrived and the once in an entire lifetime number has appeared! I didn’t do anything that was particularly memorable/ special to commemorate this fateful day, which means I didn’t go rock climbing, kayaking, had a makeover or even jump out of a plane…. BUT it was quite a meaningful one. For me, it would be the most meaningful. 🙂
Had a little surprise waiting for me in the morning with a makeshift cake, had a surprise outside the cinema’s toilet *it was that or in the cinema… omg… I will blush till the next day… hahaha*
Watched “Invisible Target”
and Surpise! Surprise! It was really entertaining! I actually think it’s better than “Transformers”, yeah U read right… It was quite a typical story line actually, one could roughly guess what was going on, but the direction was really nice, I actually felt like I was experiencing events at the same time the characters on screen were… Very nice! If it were split into 6 parts, it would be 3 parts Action, 2 parts Comedy and 1 part Drama. Good stuff… I actually kinda liked Jaycee Chan’s role… hahah very goody… hahah oh, he looks A LOT like Jackie Chan… but i think Jaycee is cuter… hahahah oh the main bad guy was pretty cute too… lol… I didn’t catch his name though… * oh wait, I found out it’s Wu Jing, his pic below…*
I think i detoured a little, never mind there should be more detours… This day had a few firsts too, I went to Bar-B-Que Plaza *I have no idea how it’s spelled*, it was quite a long eating process, and i asked quite a number of silly questions, hahaha but the food was ok, the sauce was nice too… *omg, my fav song is on! lol* At the restaurant, I also experienced a first regarding service. I would say it was bad or anything, but the server’s attitude was little off? depends on how one sees it, but I think she was a little too playful? Didn’t work for me though, I’m a more reserved person, so work your charm elsewhere, I was just felt it really odd.
I mean have u ever encontered a situation where the server takes your cup to refill your drink, U look up at the person and the server goes *this might be a bad translation* “What? you don’t want is it?” I said “er… no need lar” *i kinda thought she was joking* Then she actually continued saying “So U want or not?”. I was like “No, no need, I don’t want” then she kinda gave me a look and said “ok lor” and walked off… ODD…. There were other situations too, I don’t want to…. oh what the heck..
I just recapped the second “episode”, the first was when she asked us for our student id’s, then everyone was kinda lazy to take theirs out… then she said “no one want to give then no discount ah” I kinda asked the Coffeeholic to take hers before, but I dunno what got into me so I attempted to take mine too, the Coffeeholic was faster than me, then the waitress went “so slow, people faster than U lor”… er ok…
3rd episode, while bringing the cake, she wanted to take the cheque book, I stopped her and said we haven’t paid yet, *if you are wondering why the cheque book was there, the people there though we wanted the bill, -.-“” and made a little round to show it to us… -.-“* She said, “Huh? haven’t paid yet ah?” with a really are u kiddin me look. All it all, quite a weird shop hahahah ok next…
Kinda walked around the mall after, I don’t seem to be able to find a bag that I really like, maybe I’m just not looking hard enough or maybe the theory of “what U want U can’t find, but what U don’t want just pops up everytime!” Soon them mates left one by one and it was “time to say goodbye”… I collected my last paycheck from my previous work… It felt a lot, I dunno, I forgot how hard I worked… Bought Lee Hom’s Cd… more on that later…
Another first today would be, I met a girl who lived in Britain her entire life but has very little British slang… she even speaks cantonese… wow… She’s my mum’s primary Best Friend’s daughter… I think i actually look her age… about 4 years younger than I am… hahahha.. interesting this..
Another first would be listening to Lee Hom’s newest album for the first time. I would say it is the best so far.. haha in his 2 previous albums I skipped a few songs, this album is unskippable, to me… nice nice.. I like it.. Especially the beats… nice stuff… 3 thumbs up!!! Oh and he’s kinda into the environmental stuff too considering the minimal packaging and his list of things to save the environment.. nice!
What other firsts could there be? hmmm… Oh yes! I actually drove at night! hahah for quite a short distance though… “for a person that has gotten her license for a long time and only driving now is pretty bad” It’s quite different, it’s kinda hard to see the white stop line…. anyway….
To top the “day” it rained a little.. and you know what happens when it rains? “I’m only happy when it rains” hahaha It was only for a short while though…
I think I’m beginning to grasp the concept of birthdays, it’s not what U do, but who you spend it with…. as long as one has good comapny, a birthday cannot go wrong… 🙂 apart from that today will be the most meaningful cause along the way as I was trying to figure out what I was trying to do, I realised that the things that I wanted to do wasn’t so powerful to coerce myself to do it, I managed to figure out that life isn’t just about yourself but also other people, so I gave back a little to the community. *I didn’t volunteer, I don’t think I’m at that stage yet, I wonder if I ever will be” I actually did it without my mum forcing me… that is so odd… I think I’m changing…
I did another thing that I always wanted to do but just never got round to doing it… I applied to donate my organs actually pledge, cause I won’t be donating it yet… 😀 I feel glad that I actually did though my Dad kinda protested, why? I have no idea…. It was quite scary filling in the form though.. hahaha especially the part where it said which organ U would like to donate.. hahaha.. SO if U want to pledge your organs or know more about pledging them, click here
And since this 20.07.2007 thingy has things to do with numbers.. what what happening to me at exactly 20:07, on 20.07.2007? I fired up my mp3 player and played the next song on the list and miraculously it was a song titled Happy Birthday in Chinese… I didn’t even realise it was 20:07 till I checked out what time it was… hahaha
So it was a Good 20.07.2007! I finished typing this before 12 am!
