This is a very late post but this month is my birthday (Happy Birthday to me!) and celebrated twice for the occasion, one is a weekend dinner with my family, as weekends are the only day that we can get together to celebrate, and second is a date with my SO.

The weekend celebration went great, but the latter one went to a very painful start — migraine and had to take a very strong pill just to lessen the pain, anyway it did work but it got me out of focus.

Celebration throughout the years

Since I was a kid, my birthdays are always celebrated with my brother since we’re only days apart from each other, so to save money and resources decorating the house we just have to make one large birthday party.  

And with that, we also share the birthday gifts and since video games are the best gift for siblings, our parents bought us ‘Good Boy’ a Famiclone console as a first game console, then years after that we got a Sega Genesis console and cartridge. We keep on getting video games stuff until we got a Playstation One (PSOne) console and that’s the last time our parents gave gifts for the both of us — puberty hits us differently.

We still collect video games now but of course, we have the means to buy it.

I also remember, even if my brother and I don’t celebrate birthdays together, my dad always cook us spaghetti and chicken every time I go home for my birthday.
