Today’s my birthday and I felt great. I took a day off from my hectic working days. Actually I’d like to take more than one-day off but my notorious workload didn’t allow me to do so. I arrived at Novotel Coralia (Bogor) yesterday afternoon with my parents. After a late lunch yesterday, we returned to the hotel and was just relaxing… enjoying the quiet environment with the ongoing downpours from late afternoon to early morning the next day.
The downpours are all that we need after the hot scorching months that almost burned everything. I didn’t have a birthday cake, but a long breakfast with my parents surrounded by the calming atmosphere was really a gift for me. Then, I took the stroll around the hotel’s compound… just sitting on one of its bale bengong and continue chit-chat with my mom. I called my brother to arrange birthday get-together during lunch at Imperial Chef.
My sisters who live out of Indonesia gave me a call — Sylvia, Mandy and Matthew from Singapore. Andre, my brother-in-law from Thailand. Thress, John, and Thea from Toronto. Thea “screamed” happy birthday to me. He, he,… I know she’ll become a smart and sensible woman, like me *smile*
Cak Ar, a long time friend when I studied at ITB called me and wished the usual sincere-but-naughty wish.
A series of friends called me and wished me the best for my birthday. Following are some messages and wishes I received for my 2006 birthday:
Happy Birthday Beth! Semoga panjang umur, banyak rejeki + enteng jodoh 😀 :-D. Hehehe… kayak nenek2 jaman dulu aja gue kasih selametnya ;-). Anyway have a wonderful birthday and all your wishes come true!

Bebeth, happy birthday ya. Semoga Bebeth makin gila berkarya ya. Ngapain aja sekarang Beth?
Oh ya ampun, happy belated birthday ya, Beth. Pas the day nya gue malah lupa nyelametin. Enjoy the reading 🙂
Long time no hear, no see, no anything from you, I hope all is well with you. How’s life in Indonesia? adjusting well? You are the kind of person who will survive everywhere, so I am not worried that you will be bored.
I want to wish you a very happy birthday! I know it is a day late in Indonesia but I want you to know that I am thinking of you, and trying to picture how you look nowadays, slim, fit, big smile on your face, well dressed, well read, well traveled, etc… so…. is it good enough request to ask for your picture?? Many happy returns, dear!
Take a day off on your birthday and go stretching, that way, you will grow taller not older on your birthday 🙂
Celebrate it loud and sound, all the best!
