thirty-three

thirty-three.

33.

it's a very neat number; double digits do it for me.
it's even considered a lucky number here in china as it sounds similar to the word for "birth" (三・生).

and on this day; 31st of august i have turned 33.
it's my birthday♪
i'm fine with 33, it's 35 which scares me...

i remember when i turned the big-thirty, oh some three years ago, my friend sent me a list of what i should have accomplished before departing those care-free 20's

one: skydiving
two: a threesome
three: living in a foreign country
four: abseiling
five: s&m
six: scuba diving
seven: gay sex
eight: karaoke
nine: sex in the office
ten: pass out from excessive drinking

three years later and my check-list is still the same...
i really should do something about it.
and no, i'm not going to tell you which ones have been checked-off!

my weekend started out very "metro-sexual" (as my friend put it).
went across the border into china with friends for a massage. it's much much cheaper to do it in china compared to hong kong.
we laid back and got kneaded in all the right places
(well nearly all *wink wink*).
we got foot massages, leg massages, shoulder massages, manicures and pedicures.
this was followed by a nice meal with lots of laughter and naturally lots of alcohol.

k-chan treated me to a beautiful meal at the luxurious four seasons hotel here in hong kong.
the food was amazing, the view spectacular, the service top notch, and the company more than perfect.
thanks a million k-chan!

omedetou! 33 is still young.

with all that traveling that you're doing it sure seem to me like you're living a pretty nice life as it is. i'd be satisfied!

interesting list by the way! don't know if i feel the need to try all those things! lol

I'm randomly going through your old posts again (I'm stalkerish like that) and hey, whaddya know? I discover you're about two years older than me.

Triva. Always enlightening. :P

* life for beginners
omg, are you stalking me? just kidding. you can stalk me all you want.
I'm a 76-boy, which would make you a 78?
btw, can you check everything off my list above?

Life for Beginners | Kenny Mah said...

I'm a '79 boy, but born in January. So my Chinese Zodiac mirrors them '78 kids. :P

And from that list? I've done 6.5 items. Happy guessing which ones... ;)
