I don’t like celebrating my birthday. Don’t get me wrong though. I do love birthdays and celebrating peoples birthdays…just not my own. I used to love it and I couldn’t wait for it, but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve not enjoyed it as much. The problem is that when it comes time to plan my own birthday party, I tend to stress out and worry about what everyone else around me wants. This just takes away from the whole experience as I end up trying to please the people in my life at the time.
Due to all of this, I didn’t plan anything for my birthday this year and decided to just skip it. Thankfully I have an amazing boyfriend and some pretty wonderful friends who wouldn’t let it go and got me to go out and enjoy my special day. I had a perfectly low-key day with Matt, Angie, and Morten. We met up for lunch at Isola, a fabulous restaurant overlooking the skyline of Kowloon. Then we walked around and shopped a bit. Finally Matt and I took the ferry over from Central to TST, which was something we had not done before. All in all, it was a truly wonderful day and a great start to a fabulous new year of life!
