  • Author's Note


    The term 'amalgamation' pertains to a combination of two or more. This is a personal blog which is a combination of musings of my activities, thoughts, inspirations, ideas, and everything that happens around me.

  • Be inspired, have peace of mind


    As a personal blog, there are articles written not just for the sole intention of writing but are also directed to share experiences to uplift and inspire the downtrodden.

  • Love, love, love


    There's beauty in everything. Be filled with love as you listen to love songs you may want to sing along with.

  • Tragedies and Disasters


    Life isn't always about fun and happiness. Get a glimpse of me as I speak my mind about tragedies, disasters, and pains.

  • Hope


    Life won't have meaning if everyone turns blind and start to see no hope. There is always hope, just waiting to be lit. Read through articles filled with hope.

  • Movies and so much more!


    Occasionally, I'm inclined to write reviews for movies, places, restos, or just about anything. Watch out for those cutting remarks! =)

  • Journey


    Hey, life's a journey. What better way to immortalize oneself than through writing?

  • Share your thoughts!


    I would greatly appreciate it if you shared your thoughts with me. Please feel free to leave messages at the comments box below each post. Thanks!

Happy Birthday To Me!

Wednesday, June 29, 2011


If you can count the candles, that's not how old I am (LOL)

I'd forget my birthday if that was possible. I have a good life, but I am always thankful to God about that every single day so that's not just a birthday thing for me. Have you ever wondered about what is it really about birthdays that people get excited about?

Is the excitement coming from expecting some big, happy surprise to happen? I guess to some truth it gives stress and anxiety on the celebrant to be expecting something and when something falls short of what was expected happens, reasons to be sad start surfacing. I mean hey, I was also a kid once, so yeah, I know how disappointing that can be. But I grew up, the years passed, and through all the things I've been through, I found my birthdays to be easier to handle when nobody knew or remembered -- with the exception of family members of course.

There's always only Michael, my bestfriend who never seem to forget. And I'm already happy when he'd text 12 o'clock midnight to greet me, "Happy Birthday!"

But again today, reasons to be sad surfaced, just all sorts of things that gives me stress and anxiety. But these are things that happen not just today, on my birthday, but daily on regular basis. I guess unexpected events are bound to happen anytime (just your luck if it falls on your birthday!) but it's ultimately the celebrant who decides to choose how his or her birthday is going to be, happy or sad.

So I want to choose to be happy today no matter what. Mama and I have plans in the morning but it's starting to rain so I'm pushing that worried thought aside. I can celebrate my birthday wherever with mama and we can talk endlessly with not much sense and be laughing all day and be happy about it.

I choose to be happy today no matter what! So happy birthday to me! =)
