My 22nd

DSC086771 copy
It is on the seventh; April 7th to be accurate.
Yes, I share the same birth date with Michelle; only thing is that hers on January, mine four months later.There were confusions about my birth date yesterday (April 6th) because people kept on sending me early birthday wishes at my Facebook Wall. I told them that those were the early birds but still, I appreciate them a lot. Here are the messages I received on my Facebook Wall so far. I'll keep updating them as the new wishes come in.
"Happy birthday ya bro.. hope u 'year year have today' " - Yee Kong (my high school classmate) - 年年有今天? I don't really got his last line though.
"To prove that I know that your birthday is coming, I shall wish you in advance. And erm...relationship has prob? Hang in there, dude! =) Oh..And I missed out on the wishes! Happy birthday in advance!! =) We're now the two-two people!!! =) Cheerss!!" - Sze Huey (Joann's high school mate who happens to know several of my friends in Aussie) - that relationship part has nothing to do with the relationship between Michelle and me; sorry for the misunderstanding xD
"Happy Birthday!!!!" - Jane Grace (blogging friend)
"happy birthday yo... jyuken gambatte^^" - Lim Fong Zyin (senior, formally from Nagaoka Kosen)

And besides the Facebook message, I also got other messages sent to my mobile phone, Google Talk and MSN. Too bad my line was disconnected at twelve midnight sharp and hence, I didn't get any messages through MSN after midnight at MSN.
But first, here is a hand-made card sent by Kiera (Mich's childhood friend) last night. Although it was just a copy-and-paste work using pictures taken from the internet, I didn't expect this at all and I was like "OMG! Wow!! HAHAHA!! Damn cute can!"
"hepi birthday dude though it is one hour earlier than d time in msia. hope u get d uni u wan n ur wish all cum true" -
Wee Kien who messsaged me three minutes after midnight.
"Happy Birthday 2 u. 2 X. Happy Birthday 2 baby Kah Yee. Happy Birthday 2 u. May this day brings good health, peace and success in ur life lots of love frm mm, dd n ur sisters. Good night n take care. x nid reply k"
Mom who started the message with a birthday song first xD
"Happy Birthday to you! All the Best oh... Take care" - Jeansway (blogging friend, who is a close friend of Kae Vin), which is the only other message I got all the way from Malaysia, and also for the birthday song he sent me through MSN.
"Happy Birthday (e-card version)"
- Joann, although it was the same e-card as previous year =P
Happy Birthday!" - Wai Tatt, who remained anonymous at first because I didn't have his number before this xD
"hihi, happy birthday lol! wish u all d best hehe~"
- Stella Leng (a senior taking a teaching course in Saitama) at MSN this morning.
"yo yo! happy birthday man!!! 22 year old d!!! apa feeling? lower part become bigger!!! lol" - Looi (National Service mate who happens to be Heng Chiang's childhood friend too) at GoogleTalk last night - my reply was, "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! KEPALA OTAK KAU! lol i feel more old? and i feel sleepy lol
"お誕生日おめでとう。。。この一年Calvinにとって最高の年でありますように。" - Sodo, who shares the same birthday with me.
"happy birthday" - Kai Ning, this must be the wish within Japan which I get furthest away from Nagaoka; all the way from Kyushu.
"naruhodo. 22 yrs old ka. hurm2. been there. nuthing happened kedo. haha. otanjoubi omedetou gazaimasu!" - Amalina (PPKTJ batch mate in Niihama) - I certainly agree with her; perhaps turning 22 isn't the best for her alone.
"Hapi birthday"
- KokahKok (blogging friend) at MSN.
YYYYYYY" - Mingrong at MSN, definitely something creative and different.
"today ur birthday right? happy birthday" - Wei Guang at Google Talk.
"Happy birthday 2 U. May you have continuous excellence ahead. 4 ee & family" - My forth aunt who sent this message to my phone from Penang.
"happy birthday to you too. sorry baru baca only. too busy. may you be well and excel in your exam. your jee ee." - My second aunt who celebrated her birthday one day earlier.
And here are the messages that I left out as they'd wished me in the previous entry. Don't be sad even though your messages are placed at the most bottom section, because like what people always say, save the best for the last.
"lol..happy birthday" - Chuan Guan (blogging friend)
"Happy Birthday to you~ ^^ wishes from Seoul keke" - Lee Xein - again.
"wow, you sweet heart mz hv given u a suprise by hacking ur blogspot n post a something special. Calvin Happy Birthday!!!" - Looi - the few one I got to know from National Service and still keep in close contact with.
oh yesterday was your bday?... i thought end of april... sorry.. ngek..happy birthday" - Kok Hong (insert the suitable relationship here)
P/S: Sorry if I had left out anyone here, because there were too many of them and I will try my best to include everyone's message here. Tell me if I missed out on anyone's message, okay?
P/S/S: Guess what was the surprise the guys gave me last night. I don't think anyone will expect them to give me such present. Anyone fancy to make a guess here, before I reveal it in the next entry?


Kae Vin said...

I knew a lot will be wishing u Happy Birthday in the mid night. To make sure the wishing doesn't stop, I hereby wish you

calvin said...

@ specialhuman:
haha, really or not? or you have forgotten about that? anyway, the wishes stopped coming in at midnight 'coz my line got disconnected already by that time lol xD

TZ said...


=chuan guan= said...

calvin said...

@ tz:
謝謝 =)

calvin said...

@ =chuan guan=:
did you wish me? xD

kh said...

you missed me out... no presents coming this year i guess..

calvin said...

@ kh:
language tape is not considered present, right? i think it's more to educational tools. so, i'll be waiting for my language tape to arrive.

lyk said...

because kisarazian are very bored so tend to crap a lots or 38 a lot XD

calvin said...

@ lyk:
how can city boys like you guys be more bored than people who are living in village like me here lol xD

kh said...

ah yaya.. crap that best for last.. anyway our relationship is not important cos we are not related in any way at all...

calvin said...

@ kh:
facts are facts. we are somehow related, i'm very sure about that. darwin says that everyone shares the same great^n grandparents, and that is you-know-who.
