5 Reasons Why I Like My Birthday.

Hello guys!

So you probably know that Singapore recently celebrated it's 50th year of independence. You know, #SG50, #NDP2015. But people tend to forget the more important celebration happening in August. MY BIRTHDAY - a celebration of me becoming older, wiser, but maybe not more mature. I'm already very mature to begin with.
And I'm always very happy when my birthday comes around of course. And that's despite the fact I become older. I never really paid much attention to age. But that's because my beauty is timeless and everlasting. Anyway! My birthday is good. And here's why.

#1 Presents.

And I know you can go like, "Oh you get presents during Christmas too." Blah blah blah. Well it's different. Christmas is the time of giving and family, and sharing, and feasting and being merry.
(Via Gifrific).

Well, while I support family dinners and gifts exchange, I am sometimes not into jubilant celebrations and all that jazz. Mostly because I'm lazy and sometimes anti-social. But also because I quite like being selfish and having people to bestow gifts on me and me alone. It's great you know, to wake up and see a pile of presents, all of which belongs to you. (I have a sister who is 9 years older than me, I have issues).

Also it is tedious to buy so many gifts for so many different people, and sometimes I really can't be bothered with the person whom I'm buying the gift for. So you end up buying something lame which you hope looks expensive.
(Via The Knot).

Also because some people tend to feel obligated to give everyone a gift. Even the RBF who sit sullenly in the corner, emerging only to take snacks from the pantry (aka me). So what happens is everyone usually ends up with a bunch of useless gifts.
(Via Buzzfeed).

But it's different on my birthday. My birthday is the one day where I am entitled to be completely selfish and accept gifts from my loyal subjects, I mean friends. And it is their duty as my friends to get me satisfactory gifts. And it is my responsibility to accept these gifts and impart my kindly words of thanks upon my friends.
(Via Buzzfeed).

Yes. Birthday presents are good.

#2 Shopping.

I would say that I like shopping, but that would be a gross understatement of the facts. Have you seen my hauls?
Yeah. It is completely possible for a tiny human being (aka Zel) to hide behind the tower that is my freshly delivered clothes.
And you know what happens when it's my birthday month? I GET DISCOUNTS. I CAN BUY MORE WITH LESS MONEY. 
(Via Buzzfeed).

Aldo, La Senza, Tangs, Kiehl's .....the list goes on. But the bottom line is always:
(Via imgflip).

What?! Some people believe in anti-depressants, some people believe in Zeus. I believe in retail therapy. 

That's right. Commercialism makes the world go round, and also makes Jac a happy girl.

#3 No Nagging.

My mother nags at me quite a lot. Typically, her nagging goes something like this.

"Jac. Wake up."
"Jac. Stop eating so much rubbish."
"Jac. You must eat this dish with rice."
"Jac. Why must you always drink Coke Light."
"Jac. You are too dark. You must stop going into the sun."

(Via Gurl).

Recently, she has also come up with more creative nags.
Don't get me wrong, I love my mother very much ok. BUT AIYO. Her nagging is very annoying. It takes my attention away from the voices in my head. Bad.
(Via Buzzfeed).

But during my birthday, it's great! I get to say "My birthday, cannot nag at me." And I get to bring out my 1.5 litre bottle of Coke Light and plonk it ceremoniously on the dining room table without having my mother ask me not to consume such copious quantities of Coke Light. Yes, it's all about the small pleasures in life guys. 

#4 My Way.

Sorry. But I like to believe that I was born with a platinum spoon in my mouth. I don't normally act that way, okay well maybe I do. But on my birthday I am given a license to have things go my way.

"No, I only want to eat chocolate for lunch!"
"Yes I am going to watch an entire season's worth of Bones reruns and no one is to disturb me."
"Yes I'm really just going to sit by the window and play with my phone for hours on end."

And no one can bother me! Because it's my birthday and I said so. Muahahaha.

Also in looking for pictures to substantiate my point, I decided that I can become quite good friends with the girls on Toddlers and Tiaras.
(Via Ned Hardy).

#5 No Decisions.

I hate making decisions. I mean, I'm fine with making personal choices. But I detest making decisions which affect others. Like choosing where to eat. Oh my god. Deciding on where to eat is one of the most troublesome things in the world.
(Via Okay Pokay).

But because whatever I says goes on my birthday, I don't have to think! I can just order people to make decisions for me. I mean it doesn't make much of a difference anyway. I always make very poor choices in life anyway.
(Via Buzzfeed).

Of course, sometimes this doesn't work out very well in my favour. Take the time Chengwei brought me out for example. I walked around the whole Tanjong Pagar/Duxton area wearing a feathery halo and carrying the largest Hello Kitty balloon that Chengwei could possibly find ok.
Props to him la. A for effort.

And now I would like to leave you with a good song which is not In Da Club by 50 Cent.

There isn't a video available, but if you want you can play it while watching this psychedelic gif flash and possibly give you an epileptic shock.
