Double three. Yes, today I turn 33.


An hour past noon, more than three decades ago, I had my first cry. I was born and a bit overweight then. No need to point that out since I am overweight now too despite being underweight during my school years. I am the first child of Nilda and Cezar who were the happiest parents on earth last December 29, 1977.

They are one of the earliest to greet me. Earlier than my alarm clock. Mama wakes me up with this kiss while Papa starts playing a Happy Birthday cd. I wonder why they are up this early.

And I remember that today, my parents are scheduled for check-up (including lab tests) and my birthday wish is for them to have normal results. This wish is beyond anyone's control but still I am hoping everything will turn out fine. In half-a-month, I will be going back to Japan again and I want to be sure that I need not to worry.

If last year wishes were more about me, this time it's for my family, especially to the two people who give their all to provide me and my brother all the support and needs since birth until now. My personal wishes can wait for a while.

Being 32 was a blast. The past 365 days were spectacular, there may be some low points but it was there to balance out everything. (Maybe this would be another blog entry).

Positivity this thirty-three. Cheers!
