When I was 19, a friend, who is older than me says " Enjoy your last teen year. You can never get it back. The numbers (afterward) ain't gonna be pretty either". At that time, I just didn't care. I was surely enjoying myself, who cares bout numbers??

Well, now, few years after (hehe...few few years kot..), I started to realize the significance of these numbers. It marked a different phase of your life. When I was litle, reaching 10, I knew nothing. Playing and gaming is all I knew. At 20s, busy with studying, finding jobs, finding stability in life. And beyond those years, what's left? All these years I've lived, I started to realize that I've lived my life for ME.

But again, can I really blame it to the fact that I am still single, has no one to depend on me or me on them? No! I still have my parents, friends, etc. It means, I have ELSE.

This is the first time in my life, that I feel birthday is not something to be celebrated. It is actually a reminder. A constant reminder. That as the years go by, it reminds me on these question: What has I really achieved so far? What is my contribution to my own life, my family, my friends? I wouldn't go as far as my country coz I know I didn't contribute much. hehehe....

In another 5 or 10 years time, where is ME?
