Well, how was my birthday yesterday? How did I celebrate my very SPECIAL/LUCKY DAY?
It was super fun. That was one of the best birthday party I have had in my first twenty one years here on earth. It was well-spent because of you guys (my family, blogger friends, college friends, best friends, co-leaders, Pathways family, TOSP family, TYG family, and many more).
I spent the fantastic night with my TOSP friends (Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines) in the GK designer’s night (cocktail party) organized by Tony Meloto, the founder of Gawad Kalinga (GK) to celebrate the hero-ship of young leaders who work on nation building at NBC tent, global city, Taguig.
It was a great event; top executives of established companies, eminent political leaders (including Vice President Noli de Castro) and academic leaders, and professionals were there to commemorate my birthday and the event (the latter is true). Ryan Cayabyab and his singers entertained us. After the event, we hopped in bars and coffee store at the Fort. We spent the late night at fullybook and sipped coffee while enjoying the conversation and the atmosphere. We went home 4am, it was fun.
Am extending my utmost thanks to all the special people who greeted me a Happy birthday. Am always thankful because I have you guys in my life who continue to believe in me, who love me as I am (Yes, as Mark Aethen, the young lad who will make you smile even in a gloomy, cheerless, and distressing moments), and who are always there to support me in my endeavours in life.
Now that I am not so young boy now, I’ll be more serious in life – will be more responsible, set long term productive goals and will work on it, will be still remain as passionate and committed to the things I believe in life.
I will be always grateful to Him who has blessed me much. I’ll be sharing all these blessings of God’s greater glory to the less fortunate and marginalized because I believe to whom much is given much is expected.
