Just like last year I decided not to have a party for my birthday celebration, I opted for an unusual one you know for a change, every year I always do something different for my birthday, I ask an office friend if I can go mountain climbing with them, so this year I joined with the mountaineers and celebrated my birthday on the top of the world with strangers, people I just met, climbers who doesn’t mind tagging someone who climb so slow it ate their time waiting for me to go back in track, I rested too many times, grasp my breath too many to count, but in the end when we reached in the mountain top, set our tent in the camp site it was one helluva feeling of I made it in spite of how steep and narrow the road is, no matter how slippery it was i made it on the top. After that they cooked our food I was in awe of how they prepared a birthday celebration for a stranger like me, there were balloons, cakes and spaghetti .. yes they cooked that too, and the giveaways my friend prepared for me I was just one happy celebrant, I was amazed on how they put all those utensils in their back pack, In other words it was one celebration I will never ever forget in my lifetime because of that I gain new friends, I tried a new adventure and prove to myself it’s not about age it’s about the courage and perseverance to conquer what you think is impossible. And in my heart I will forever thank my friend for arranging everything, for the strangers I will always be grateful for them to celebrate this special day with me. Here’s to my 38th mountain top birthday in Mt. Lanaya, Alegria Cebu Philippines.
