Happy Birthday To Me :P

Birthday2

Happy Birthday to Nithi :)

It does sound a little kiddish, but I don't care and I'm still a kid by heart. Its yet another reason to celebrate and feel happy which I would never want to miss ;)

Its a day when people make us feel special.
An occasion to dress up smart.
Its the time to realize that we have grown a year older.
A reason to cook your favorite dishes.
One time when even enemies wish you.
A day when mom would never scold you for your mischiefs.
Its a special day when we can treat our friends.
One day of the year we feel like "Celebrities"

It totally demands partying isn't it??? ;)

Birthday1

As I said, I did feel like a "Celebrity" today cause of all the wishes I got from known friends, little know friends and even unknown friends ;)

Thank you to one and all who wished me today. You all absolutely made my birthday one of the most memorable ones for my lifetime :)

Birthday4

Its a few years since I crossed my teen and since then it has been a syndrome to feel bad on my birthday for have grown up :( aaaha after all its human to grow and human rights to feel bad :P

But today one of my fb friend had wished me beautifully saying "You're not aging.. You're Marinating". Once I read that, I literally said it more than ten times like echoing effect and I really mean nothing could have made me feel better of growing old :)

So true.. I'm growing prettier and wiser ;) My mom never agrees the later. After all I am always a kid to her even after I stopped chewing my thumb :P

Birthday5

This time my birthday was just another happy day at home spent entirely with mom and dad, the reasons behind me here on earth :)

Of course I did bid a hi to the deities in the morning and the rest of the day was spent on phone saying a million thanks to all ;)

A few surprise calls from fellow bloggers made my day too :)

Birthday

Shamelessly I baked my own birthday cake.. Hellooooo by the way why should I shy to treat myself with my own goodies!!! ;) I enjoyed baking a cake for myself.

The cake is absolutely me. It has all what I like the most. Dark chocolate cake with vanilla fresh cream topping and decorated with my favorite Ferrero Rocher and some Lindt shavings ;)

Checkout my "Perfect chocolate cake" post for the recipe.

That made my day and it was indeed a pleasant birthday to remember :)

"it's a hap-hap happy birthday,
May you live to be, a hundred-and-three;
It's a hap-hap happy birthday,
A hap-happy birthday to Nithya.

It's a hap-hap happy birthday,
May you live to be, a hundred-and-three;
It's a hap-hap happy birthday,
A hap-happy birthday to Nithya.

Take a bow, take a bow(just a song... dont take any bow :) ) on your birthday,
Your birthday, your birthday;
Show us how, show us how on your birthday,
You still look as good as new.

It's a hap-hap happy birthday,
May you have luck galore, knock at your door;
It's a hap-hap happy birthday,
A hap-happy birthday to Nithya."


We used to sing this in school...

Haapy wala birthday Nithya...
