I'm 39

I turned 39 today. Nope, I am not afraid to tell everybody my age. I love birthdays and I love the added years and I love the life I am living and I love that I feel good!

I have three simple wishes for my birthday:
1. A dinner in a Mexican Restaurant
2. Some Pandora charms to add to my collection
3. And a plane ticket to the Philippines!

I got my first two wishes, we would have dinner this Saturday as tonight is parent-teacher meeting for the incoming grade ones. And I got my Pandora charms from hubby, IC and MC. As for the plane ticket to the Philippines... one could hope, right?

My in laws gave me their birthday gift last week and am thinking of buying books from the money I got or maybe a bag or a pair of shoes :D

Happy birthday! I turn 39 on Sunday (the 15th) and I'm oddly calm and unfazed. Glad you got 2 of your 3 wishes!

Happy Birthday, Raqgold! I wish more women can be proud enough to say their age like you. There is nothing wrong with growing older (and wiser).

So in order not to sound like a hypocrite, I'm 35... and a half:)

Happy Birthday Raqgold ! Well, I don't hide my age either, I am proud! As I age, I realised that aging gains maturity and vice versa ! I am turning 36 on September ;) and have few white hair :D !
