Uh-huh! It's My Birthday!

Woo hoo! It's my birthday! It's my birthday!

Really, it's my birthday. I didn't get to sleep in, get breakfast in bed, or get any presents yet (I have to wait till tonight), but I did wake up to the fabulous news that our biggest trade partner and neighbour has a brand new awesome president. Congrats, guys! :)

Anyway, on to my special day...

On this day, 39 years ago, in Our Lady of Loreto Hospital in Manila, The Philippines, I came kicking and screaming out of the womb and into this defenceless, unsuspecting world.

I have no problem telling people I'm 39. Probably because I'm told I don't look 39. It's all thanks to those SE Asian genes I suppose -- or maybe the deal my folks made with the devil -- maybe both.
But as with these Asian genes, I'll look young and perky -- okay, maybe just young -- until I hit 65, at which point I'll look 80 in less than a week. I'm not kidding. Just wait.
Until then, I'm content with people thinking I'm 29 at 39. :)

So, it would appear that I have only 1 year to do all the things on my List of Things To Do Before 40.
Now, I'm happy with the stuff I've done so far -- finished a professional degree (which I don't use btw), traveled and lived in Hawai'i, met and married the love of my life, gave birth to two beautiful humans, and started this awesome blog (or should I say, super-awesome blog?).

But there's other stuff, not bucket-list stuff, but other "me" stuff -- all nice and not too expensive. :) And if you think of anything else cool I can do, please let me know!

Okay, this year before I turn 40, I would like to:

1) get my cholesterol level under control (this might already be okay -- I haven't checked yet)

2) wear a bikini at the beach

3) run a marathon

4) go to all the Folklorama pavilions

5) learn Spanish

6) visit all 10 provinces and at least one territory

7) take a yoga class

8) take singing lessons

9) have a portrait of myself painted

10) finish writing my first erotic novel... and freak out my friends who will wonder which characters are based on them! heeheehee!

Any other suggestions?
