A Year Older..

February 27, 2013 at 2:02 PM

I became a year older 2 days ago. I am now 29 and it’s my last year to be in the 20-ish group. Next year I’ll join the 30-ish group which I am not happy about.

I’m trying to think age is just a number but when you’re in a family and surrounded with people who are so close minded, so kampung minded, you get all the pressure and also whispers that oh, you’re 30 and not married. You can’t help but to feel humiliated? Embarrassed? That I’m just a step away from becoming the old cat lady. I’m about to be 30 and what do I have to be proud of? Nothing..

However I am determined to make this year the best that I could. I have been busy with my online candy business which is going pretty okay, better than I had expected so I’m happy with that.

I can’t believe it’s about to be March in 1 day! MAN. Time sure flies by so damn fast.. now it’s at like express train/ETS speed.. next thing you know it’s going to be bullet train speed and you’re not gonna realize that you’re now old and just waiting for God to take you away 🙁 That’s just depressing.

Anyways, happy birthday to me. How did I celebrate it? I just went out to dinner with mom. I’m going to eat my belated birthday lunch today too with mom and probably my uncle if he’s joining. But I received quite a number of birthday wishes on facebook so thank you, I really appreciate them 🙂
