Birthdays are fun for many, but honestly not for me. I’m one of those very few people who does not get that excited about their birthday. I mean birthdays are cool, but then you grow one year older; what’s there to celebrate in that? Well, I normally don’t do much on my birthday, but this year (September 25th) was different. Okay let me not get ahead of myself. Let’s start from the beginning.
As the clock struck 12, my sister, one of her friend, and my cousin surprised me with a beautiful chocolate cake from The Chocolate Room. We cut cake, ate a couple of slices (they were simply YUMMY), and then went off to bed because we all had work the next day.
Birthday Celebration At Work
Morning came and it was time for me to go to work. Honestly, I wasn’t that excited to go to work because I wanted to take an off, sit at home, and enjoy my birthday by relaxing (and perhaps, watching some TV Series episodes). Anyway, nothing could be done and so I went to office (9 to 6). As I entered office and went to my cubicle, I saw it beautifully decorated with lovely decorations. It was cute.
Work went as usual and then in the evening came the birthday celebration. All (my colleagues and the others) except me were excited. I wasn’t too excited because they were all about to cover my face and hair with cake. And tbh, I’m not a fan of cake on the face (that’s literally cake wasting). Anyway, my office peeps sang the usual “Happy Birthday” song, and I cut the cake. Then came the most dreaded part (as expected); I got cake all over my face, hair, and even my new shirt wasn’t spared.
During lunch time, a former colleague of mine came to visit me on my birthday. It was really nice of him to come and spend some time with us. We even had lunch together before going (with the writers team) to a nearby cafe to have a cuppa of cold coffee. It was nice to meet an old friend and colleague after quite some time.
Celebrations Continued At Global Desi Tadka
I reached home after work and learned that we are going to Global Desi Tadka for dinner. I had never been there, nor did any of the seven of us who were going. The restaurant was buffet-styled and it had a unique layout. It was one massive room filled with different kinds of small rooms such as a central jail, a GDT cafe, animal-styled seats, etc. The GDT was just beautiful, and the food was pretty good too. It had Italian, Chinese, and Indian food including pastas, noodles, fried rice, pani puris, and many more (sorry I cannot recollect all the food items). Oh, and there were drinks (soft drinks) and ice-cream. We ate a lot, and by a lot I mean A LOT!
There was a dance floor too, where all of us danced for a while before we cut cake (again). It was the third cake I cut (a record for me) throughout the day. We also clicked loads of pictures. After the cake cutting, we danced for a while again (excluding me this time) before wrapping it up.
It was a satisfying day and a one I will truly cherish. I am 24 now, and even though I feel older and think birthdays are just another normal day, you can still enjoy your birthday. I certainly did, and I look forward to my 25th! (:
Thank you all for reading my birthday post. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed writing this post for you people. (:
