40

This is not the 40 I was expecting. Not that I was expecting anything. But definitely didn’t expect a global pandemic to cast a shadow over 2020. At the rate that things are going, it is going to last until at least mid 2021 before things goes back to normal. Or the new normal.

Been feeling a bit off lately. Like something is missing in life. Not sure how to really describe it. Maybe it is just a phase and will pass. And let hope it passes soon.

I think as I get older, I start to care less about birthdays. When we were young, birthday seems like some novelty thing. When we get old, birthday will seem like a milestone. But right now, birthday seems like just another day. Nothing much to celebrate about when its just in the middle. A simple steak dinner with my favourite person is a good enough celebration. A slice of cake with candle is added bonus.

Think I’ll need to start getting used to be called an uncle. Although I still get a lot of people thinking that I’m in my late 20s or early 30s. Always fun to ask people to guess my age. I know it’s cheap thrill. But let me enjoy it while it last. Don’t think it will last long. Already starting to see signs of aging like lost of hair. *horror* Oh well…. it is what it is.

Cheers to the big 40. Let’s hope the 40s will be extraordinary.

Let's dance in style, let's dance for a while
Heaven can wait we're only watching the skies
Hoping for the best, but expecting the worst
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not?
