My 29th birthday

Unlike previous years, my birthday wasn’t half bad this time around.

Most interesting tradition

birthday cake

Taking out birthday candles from a cake…with your teeth. It’s a messy affair. Thanks for the people at work for the cake and the attempt to get a beer or alcohol flavored one for me!

Most effort via electronic means

birthday mail

Mel did this birthday sign and sent it via email to me. :)

Most delicious present

birthday crab dinner

Crabs in hot and sour sauce from Jerine. She bought me a dinner at King Crab (and also a bottle of Macallen single malt).

Most thoughtful gift

birthday wallet

A wallet from Michelle. I have been using my wallet for a while now and it’s a bit worse for wear (probably coz of the large amounts of cash I stuff inside before my Genting runs !hi) and she noticed it.

Thanks for all the well wishes via text, Twitter, Facebook, phone calls et al. You’ve all made my birthday a special one. Cheers! :)

  7. Ahhh…Happy belated Birthday! Your casino adventures are interesting. I just don’t have the confidence at casinos :( One really needs it. I’m too timid and always end up losing.

  8. Limo: Cheers bro! Thanks for the birthday wishes. :)
    Well, the trick to casino is to be prepared to lose what you’re about to bet. It won’t hurt to much that way, and you’ll always walk away happy (or at least neutral). :)
    Paul Ling: Thanks Paul! Appreciate that, would love to have all the luck I can get in Genting to fund my new house. :)
    hitomi: Haha! Thanks for dropping by! :)
    Jocelyn: T_T
    I wish that were true. I’m one year older, but no worries. :)

  9. HB, Happy Birthday To You! Now it time to plan what ahead for your life. Who to marry, how many children to have, and where to live also.

  10. Aya, next time tell us early lah, take you to Gold Coast, you can fly there free with AirAsia remember? I can shout you a shitty hotel room, but you have to pay for your own hookers.

  12. teo: Thanks mate! :)
    Appreciate the wishes.
    ah nel: Yeah, it wasn’t too bad this time around! :)
    Michael (MIke): I was just talking about that yesterday. T_T
    Yes, it is time. I can feel the fatherly instinct the the urge to procreate (okay that just sounds wrong).
    joy: Thanks joy! :)
    rocket: Haha! Doesn’t sound like a fun vacation to me. I’ll rather go and pick a couple of nice, delicious fungi if I’m going to Aussie. ;)
    Darrell: Thanks Darrell! Cheers for reading all this while and being a moderator on the previous forum that I have. Man, that’s quite a while ago eh? :)
    Just realized how long I’ve been blogging.
    Hey, you’re an Aries too!
    Happy birthday in advance bro! :)

  13. fungi, oh, I know a place that grows the real, top shelf quality stuff. You get all loopy just walking in the area. it’s the real shit. But Air Asia desn’t fly there and the hookers there are pretty bogan. They don’t dig guys without a ute. Your next mission is to get a ute.

  14. rocket: We have a secret spot in Monash University, Clayton Campus in Melbourne. Primo spot – pine trees all around for amanita muscaria and psycolibin mushrooms are at another area. We harvest HEAPS every season, dry them and we’ll have enough to last a year. :)

  15. 29. well happy birthday. HB. damn… I am 50 now… but happy birthday… really. you look so happy, and that is great. you are wise beyond your years. I must confess, I am a bit jelous. but I am only human. good deal, HB. you have been through a lot is my bet. God bless. Happy birthday. and thank you, sir. for being you. tom.

  16. tom: Thanks my friend! Yeah, totally understand mate, it’s human nature. Life goes on.
    Hope you have many more years of happiness to come buddy! :)
    Thanks for the birthday wishes!
    suituapui: Hmm…I want to, but oh well, it’s not happening. I shall set the deadline at 32 then. ;)
    Cheers bro! :)
    jg: Thanks Jane! Thanks for the birthday wishes. :)

  17. Happy b-day HB. Man, It seems like just yesterday I was commenting on your 28th year old B-day. I remeber my comment too. I was talking about how depressed I always was during the past few birthdays. YOu will be happy to know I have kicked the heroin and am 7 months clean!

  18. Mike: Thanks bro! Hey, that’s GREAT news. Glad to hear that you’re clean now. 7 months. Not bad. Keep at it Mike! :)
    Chris Thoo: Thanks Chris! :)
