How would I celebrate my 25th birthday?

Posted on: April 30, 2011

This is my contest entry to Allen of Silkenhut.com’s 2011 Birthday Contest. Click the link to join!

I’ve never thought about it, until I decided to join the contest. To me, age means nothing, especially because I don’t seem to show my real age at all 🙂 A +1 added to my age would mean that I’m getting wiser and more responsible.

I would probably spend my 25th birthday by celebrating me! I’m going to splurge money on clothes, eat like my “diet” has never existed, and go have fun in the company of friends 🙂

Other than that, I would like to try giving back (I do participate in charity works, but not during my birthday. This might be a good opportunity to do so.) This is something I’ve noticed during the Christmas season: people always populate orphanages and foundations to share their blessings. Only a few attempt to do that during the off-peak season. I thought that the kids in the orphanage or where ever would be missing not only the showers of gifts but the visits from other people who can make them feel loved. I want them to feel that they are remembered all year round, not only during Christmas season when people are looking for some soul-cleansing or feel-good activity to do in time for Christmas. So, I would probably buy food, call my friends over, and go to an orphanage that not many people visit. I’ll interact with the kids, and have fun with them (even though God knows how much I dislike kids). I will share with them the blessings that I am so thankful for, for 25 great years with a loving family, supportive friends, and all the opportunities God threw towards my direction.

Oh btw, Allen from Pinoy food blog and Silkenhut is holding the contest. Head over to this blogpost of his for more details 😀

Hi Han ,

Thanks for joining! This is a very inspiring 25th birthday celebration idea. I hope you would be able to deliver that and make those kids happy… but why wait till your 25 when you start helping those kids now? 🙂

on a side note (hope you don’t mind) I recently had my first orphanage visit last year (minus the school field trips before) and I did not know what to expect. But at the end of the day, it really feels good to know that you have done something to make those kids feel special even for just a day.

hi back! 🙂
Yep, I’ll probably do that on my birthday this year or the next. Just sayin’ that maybe, come my 25th birthday, I will be/ will still be celebrating my birthday like that c:

Glad you had a heartwarming experience over at the orphanage. The beauty in these kids is that, they;re very simple. It takes very little to make these kids happy. Your presence is enough, and Jollibee will already get them excited. Their simplicity is humbling.
