Happy Birthday! Hunee

Posted by Hunee | 4/20/2008 09:14:00 AM | , | 22 comments »


This is the story why I have two birth dates. The reason why April 20 is my birthday.

My real birthday should be April 25, but for some human typo error, the nurse in charge who made the report for the City Registrar typed April 20, 1980 instead of April 25, 1980. Although the birth copy that my mother received says I was born April 25, 1980 but the document was not stamped by the City Registrar so the document is not legal. The copy my mother have turned out not to be recognized and the purpose of that copy was to tell my mother that I am going to be registered with those informations on that paper.

I never thought there was an error since I normally celebrate on the 25th not until I applied for a degree on a university. The school asked for a Certified Copy from National Statistics Office and there I was laughing. Since then I have two birthdays. I tell you, it is so damn expensive to have two birthdays. I decided back then to use April 20 to be official since court says I can't change the numbers but I can change my name. I spent thousands for the court to take sides with me but the judge says I can change all the pertinent records I have to the 20th.

I have been celebrating my birthday on this day, April 20, for 10 years now. Although before I do get 2 celebrations for some people do come on the 25th and some new friends come on the 20th. Lucky for me now, my old friends are somewhere out there and can no longer come. They just mail me postcards and emails or e card or something. My new acquaintances normally asked me to go out for a dinner whenever they are free. Since we have work and some have families, I celebrate my birthday for the whole month of April. It is not that expensive now because 70% of the time, I don't pay for the dinner. Lucky me!

I love it when people are sending me postcards and I already have that album where I put all postcards in it from anywhere in the world. I am such a friendly person, and I do trust someone easily. For whoever you are that can't send me postcard leave me a birthday comment, I will appreciate it a lot. *Grins* :D

    happy birthday sweetheart.
    hope you and your nephews celebrate in style.
    20th is also Rachel's birthday. rachel and my dad have been together since i was 2, so i know rachel like a mom. she is in portland visiting her sister who is having a battle with cancer all of a sudden.
    anyway, i am not good at sending anything in the mail at all. i think there are too many steps.
    1. you have to write something, which means you have to have something to write on.
    2. you have to have something to write. ok for me that's not that hard.
    3. then you have to procure an envelope. sometimes this can be just too much for me to handle.
    4. once you have the envelope you have to write the addresses on it. both to someone and from someone, and they have to be correct, too.
    5. now we have to deal with the stamps. it has to have stamps.
    6. even if you have stamps you have to make sure it's enough stamps. check to make sure there's not an increase, make sure if it's going overseas...etc.
    7. then you have to put the thing somewhere where you'll remember to put it in the post.
    8. then you actually have to put the thing in the post.
    by now...if i got it written, that's lucky. if it's in the envelope that's really lucky.
    see...it's just too much for me.
    i love email.
    i write, i click. i'm good to go.
    happy birthday, from your postally challenged loser friend jesse (lol-wink).

    Hello my beautiful, sweet friend. I am sorry I did not get here on your "unofficial" official birthday. I was thinking of you, though!

    I hope that you had a wonderful day with friends/family, though. I wish it was possible to teleport, because then I would have come to the Philippines to give you a hug and a kiss, and bake you a cake (just like any good TwitterMom should do!).

    I love you, Hunee. You're one of the "special" people in my life that always make me smile, no matter how I feel. I think you have an amazing spirit, and a beautiful personality. You're an incredible woman, and I can't wait to meet you in person some day! I think we'll get along great!

    Many hugs, lots of kisses.

    Angeles

    Happy Birthday lyrics

    Hey you
    I know I'm in the wrong
    Time flies
    When you're having fun
    You wake up
    Another year is gone
    Twenty one

    I guess you wanna know
    Why I'm on the phone
    It's been a day or so
    I know it's kinda late
    But happy birthday

    Yeah yeah whoa oh
    I know you hate me
    Yeah yeah whoa oh
    Well I miss you too
    Yeah yeah I know
    I know it's kinda late
    But happy birthday

    So hard
    When you're far away
    It's lame but I forgot the date
    I won't make the same mistake
    I'm so to blame

    Now you know
    Don't hang up the phone
    I wish I was at home
    I know it's way too late
    But happy birthday

    Yeah yeah whoa oh
    I know you hate me
    Yeah yeah whoa oh
    Well I miss you too
    Yeah yeah I know
    I know it's kinda late
    But happy birthday

    It's not that I don't care
    You know I'll make it up to you
    If I could I'd be there

    Yeah yeah whoa oh
    Yeah yeah whoa oh
    Well I miss you too
    Yeah yeah I know
    I know it's kinda late
    But happy birthday

    Yeah yeah whoa oh
    I know you hate me
    Yeah yeah whoa oh
    Well I miss you too
    Yeah yeah I know
    I know it's kinda late
    But happy birthday
    To you

    Mam Hunee, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

    You're so lucky for having two birthdays because not everyone are able to celebrate their bday twice. :) Be thankful always for all the blessings you have...Stay happy and please do take good care of your self always. that is my only request to you. :)

    Mam hunee, since it is your birthday, i planned to give a poem...but, i have a little time to make such bday poem for you...as a substitute i want to share a poem i made about my mother...it is my way to thank your mother because if it's not because of your mother i won't have a chance to meet you... here it is... :) hope you like it! :)

    To my Lover

    I have not known the world lies
    From the day I opened my eyes
    Only your smile I see
    That brought joy to me.

    It was a wonderful day of April
    With the sky so blue and winds gentle breeze;
    Birds were singing a song so merry
    That adds music to my world so still.

    About the world I knew nothing
    My mind was like a clean sheet of paper
    Which is pure and clear
    You painted it with thy teachings.

    From the day I was born I knew nothing
    But you taught me everything
    From crawling to walking;
    From baby cries to words for communicating.

    Because of thy effort and love
    My hunger of knowledge you fill out
    Taught me how to write and to reason out
    Now, look, who am I today?

    Because of thy heart so pure
    Overflowing love you pour
    So I’ll grow stronger like a tree
    And I am thankful to thee.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
