Thoughtful Tuesdays : Turning a year older

Apologies for missing a blog post for Thoughtful Tuesdays last week and a day later for this week’s TT, there is just so many things to do and so little time available! 🙁

I turned a year older 2 days ago and an inch closer towards the BIG 3!!! :O

This year will also be the last year that I celebrate my birthday as SINGLE  (legal marital status)…

Seems like it was only yesterday when I was mugging hard for my A levels…a conversation with the fiance also reminded it was 10 years ago that I last studied Econs…OMG!

A decade ago it was!

Back when I was still a student, time didn’t fly past that fast compared to working life. Working life is like….getting past days after days (not forgetting always looking forward to Fridays and weekends, HAHA), weeks after weeks and months after months…

And every January comes my birthday…

Like every other kid, I used to look forward to my birthday, always counting down and constantly reminding my family just for the fun of it.

But now, I am starting to kinda dread it?

I guess this is pretty much the case when others (esp women!) always comment about reaching to a certain age and being bothered and sensitive about it.

I used to wonder why other older women can be so secretive about their age and I guess I finally understood why 🙁

Anyway, age is just a number right?


But I’d must say that growing up is tough. With increasing commitments and liabilities, you cannot help but wonder why are most young Singaporeans immersed with immense stress.

You cannot help but wonder if there is a societal problem that needs to be solved ASAP but is also inevitable in a developed country like Singapore.

You cannot help but wonder if happiness is more or less important than material wants and gains…

And most importantly, you cannot help but wonder if you are just going to waste your precious years slogging for money…

Anyhow, on a happier note, I have been very blessed indeed to have many awesome people remembering my birthday (thanks to Facebook!) and celebrating with me! I am indeed very very touched 🙂 <3
