Birthday Thoughts

After 30, one stops counting.

I find this true. Because I’ve often had to pause and count when I am asked my age. It is not intentional; I simply really could not recall!

And it’s not just me. I have several friends who get this too. Okay? I’m not getting forgetful. It’s not just me getting forgetful.


Technohub-by surprised me with a birthday gift last week – a Canon SX100 IS. I was hoping for an Acer Aspire One. Or an Asus Eee 901. Or, heck, a diamond ring. (hehe) Oh well… But I am happy with the camera. I love its nifty 10x optical zoom (pang Veronica Mars! Okay, Nancy Drew, for those who don’t know Ms. Mars), and the 2.5 LCD screen. It’s also got a full-manual mode, so I could make photography difficult anytime I want to. 😛

My antique Olympus Mu-100 can finally retire (it’s not even Google-searchable anymore. LOL).

Thank you, hub, for the new toy. Mwah!


If not of my antiquity, birthdays serve to remind me that I am blessed with thoughtful, loving family and friends.

Thank you, dear family and friends, for the beautiful thoughts and wishes. I appreciate them all. 😀

  1. I know what you mean. I think Ive tried so hard to not remember what with the old age and all I dont really remember now. Although I do think i have a big one coming up soon.

  2. Who’s counting anyway 😀

    Belated Happy Birthday Chateau and may you write more thought provoking and witful posts. We expect more photos too 🙂

  3. Happy Birthday Chats. so true, am not counting na din since the 30s entered. 🙂 but I count the number of friends and the wisdom I’ve learned through the years.

    love your bday gift from Hubs. sakay na sakay pa naman ako dun sa electric curlers. 🙂

  4. ako matagal na akong tumigil sa counting..hahaha 😀

    great gadget!! bait naman ni technohubs. yung laptop hingin mo sa pasko 🙂

  5. belated happy birthday. hey now bring your camera with you always in all those fun things you do so everything is documented for the blog readers 😉

  6. And you forgot to bring the new toy to the eat-bulaga club meeting? Maybe you haven’t read the manual yet and you won’t settle for idiot-proof shooting. Sabi mo nga, you may want to make photography difficult sometimes.

    Chats, i haven’t really greeted you a proper happy birthday. Will make up for it, promise.
