My 23rd Birthday

Actually, my birthday was 13 days ago. There were a lot of things came up recently, therefore I did not have time to write about it.

This is the first time my birthday was celebrated with my friends because usually my birthday always overlaps with school holidays. As a tradition of Indonesian students here, your birthday will be celebrated at a canteen next to 7-ELEVEN. You will find a cake (of course) and your friends waiting to celebrate your birthday. Sometimes there is a birthday present too. For boys, there is an addition: the birthday boy will be thrown into the pool near the first dormitory. It reminds me of birthday celebration when I was in ITB. They also threw the birthday boy into the “Indonesia tenggelam” pool. But since I was in the third grade, that tradition has been banned.

I was watching a Japanese movie when one of my friends came to my room. She said she want to have a chit-chat related to her personal life. Then I listened to her story (it was quite a long story) and in the end she said she was hungry and want to buy some foods at 7-11. She asked me to go with her. At first, I rejected it because I haven’t finished that movie, but finally I went with her.

When I arrived at that canteen, a lot of people already gathered around. Then, my super boyfriend gave me a birthday cake – a chicken birthday cake – of course with candles on it.

Make a wish – take pictures together – cut the cake – and finally got a birthday present too. That was the most interesting part. I got Hey! Say! JUMP calendar 2013-2014 for my birthday present 😀 I remember I have said to KoBun that I want that calendar last year when I accidentally saw it in a store. In fact, I wanted to buy it by myself but the price is quite expensive so I didn’t buy it.

KoBun said that he still has another present for me and my birthday theme this year is “Time”. Later he posted a birthday video and it is very cool! (Thanks ICE, you made my boyfriend learn how to make a very good video :P)

This is the video 😀

On the next day, when I woke up, I found another birthday gift on my desk. It was a Line doll and also Dan Brown’s latest novel “Inferno”. Yay! That was the second time I got a novel for my birthday present 😀 The first time was my 14th birthday – I got two Sidney Sheldon’s novels “Are you afraid of the dark?” and “Nothing Lasts Forever”.

For special dinner with KoBun, we went to Mita Pasta in Zhong Shan area 😛 The restaurant is cozy and comfortable. The food is delicious and the price is not that expensive. We tried their set menu: salad, soup, pasta, dessert, and beverage.
