My long birthday week has finally been concluded! My digestive system can finally go back to its usual routine. Haha! And despite a protracted pandemic year, let me brag that there are actually two major highlights in my birthday celebration this year.
Organized by my sweet nephews and nieces, I and my whole family spent a wonderful weekend in a mansion of a house in cool & misty Tagaytay province, a high-altitude city 59 kilometers away from the bustling Manila.
Second highlight was the sumptuous dinner buffet in 5-star Sofitel Manila, considered to have the priciest and longest buffet in the country. My whole family was of course in attendance in this wonderful dinner.
I guess I have gone really old and already accepted this fact. In the past years I tremble and experience anxiety attacks when I know that my birthday is about to come and I actually abhor celebrating it. I hated getting old. Haha!
But this year, I decided to embrace this beautiful day. I have accepted the fact that I have already lost my youth and the remaining years should be more about the essence of living. And adopting the thoughts of Mark Twain regarding birthdays and old age, let me end this post by relaying what he said, “Age is a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”
