Let me start of by saying that, I have amazing friends, an awesome family, and a God that loves me (and He’s been saving my behind, especially with something that I don’t want to mention *embarrasedFace*).
I have had the most amazing 21st birthday ever. My birthday was on the 22 March 2014, on a Saturday, and in South Africa, we celebrate Human Rights day on the 21st, which was on a Friday, therefore, should a public holiday (Human Rights day) fall on a Friday, it’s going to be a long weekend. There was no school on Friday, which made it a super awesome birthday, because I wouldn’t have to wake up early the following day for school.
Anywhow, this is how everything played out.
I met someone awesome from Malawi. He’s an Architecture student, and his name is Chiposi “Felli” Sinalo. This very awesome person took me out to the movies on Friday (pre-birthday vibes). We watched 300- Rise of the Empire. The movie was not the type that I would watch, because it was very violent and there was too much blood, but I laughed so much at the number of times I cringed at the sight of seeing how this other evil, but absolutely goregous woman would slay someone’s head off.
After the movie, we went to one of my favourite places, called the Magic World, which is a gaming arcade. We played a few games there, and contemplated between playing putt-putt golf or going go-carting, but in the end, we didn’t do neither.
We walked around a bit, looking for gifts and other small things, and in the end, we went to Wakaberry, which is FroYo shop in Port Elizabeth. After getting some frozen yogurt, we went to the beach. We got to the beach and chilled on one of the benches, talking, and watching the waves hit the rocks. It was pure bliss. The weather was absolutely to die for. There was a beautiful contrast of gold sun rays and a dash of blue sky as the sun was setting, and a gentle breeze, with that inkling of sea salt in it.
It was the perfect day. We took lots of pictures (which I will post (^^,). After playing in the water for a bit, we went to Spur Steak Ranches for supper, which was an awesome ending to a beautiful day. The setting at the restuarant was so mellow, and there was an atmosphere of laughter, a melancholy atmosphere among friends, who haven’t seen each other in a while, and have finally gotten the chance to catch up over a great meal.
We talked over a cup of tea and had great food too. To end of the evening, we walked home, and got to my apartment, chilled on the sofa, and at 23:59, he did a countdown, and was the very first person to wish me a happy birthday.
Could a girl ask for more?! I dont think soo!
He left after some dancing in my tiny living room.
For my actual birthday (some of my friends forgot!), my parents called and did a duet over the phone, which made me miss home, because I would be getting cake at home and would get to be with my favourite little people in the whole wide world. I miss my family so much, and I thank God every day for such amazing people. I have the greatest family ever, and they’re so suportive. I had tons of messages from friends, but the one that broke my heart the most, was the message from my oldest brother. I almost broke into tears… (long story :(
It was a chilled, laid back day, filled with movies, laughter, tea and giant red velvet cupcakes. I think it’s safe to say that, I gained atleast 5kg’s from all the food that I ate this weekend. My friends cooked and sang for me , and even got me a red velvet cupcake with a match stick impersonating as a candle. I loved it.
It was the best birthday ever.
Life is amazing. And Love is even better.

We weren’t sure whether the camera was taking pictures not! #21
You gotta love me :) #21
I’d like to finish of by saying this :
Have an awesome week
I love you all
P.S. I’ve been bloated for 4 days. I’m starting to think that it might not be that at all. LOL. Help me solve the mystery.
