It is past midnight now and I’ve clocked like 39 years on this earth. Yeah … I’ve just celebrated my 39th birthday on earth yesterday. What I planned to be just simple dinner with my family turned out to be a little bit more special with my buddies turning up at a nearby restaurant/bar with dinner and some booze. What really made my birthday super special was something I received from Noreen … a good friend who is really great at her craft and arts stuffs. OMG! I just made my way back from the booze session but I just have to post this (after ripping apart the little present the gave me) before I take a shower (and fall asleep). OMG! This has to be one of the coolest shit (pardon my language) I’ve received my whole life!

It is this little ‘case’ for my Digital Harinezumi. I took a few photos of it (after lots of beer) …

Damn cool isn’t it? OMG! I just can’t stop saying ‘OMG!’. LOL! She showed me some soft pouches she made recently for the Harinezumi camera and I told her I would love a coffin shaped one. Oh well … I was just joking when I said that. I didn’t expect her to make one for me. Today when I met her for dinner (of course with my buddies from ThirtySix and family), she told me that she slept til 1:30pm because she went to bed at 6am. Not wanting to ask what on earth she was doing til 6am (you never know what young folks are up to), I didn’t really probe further. However after opening my birthday present from her … I was almost moved to tears. Really. No joke. OMG! (I’m repeating ‘OMG’ again!) … this is truly awesome!

Come to think of it … she did asked me this evening (on MSN Messenger) about my religion and asked if I am superstitious. Hmm. It did puzzled me for a while but now that I’ve seen what she made for me … I know why she asked that question. Some people are just against such idea of gettting a ‘coffin’ for a present … let alone a birthday present. LOL! OMG! For me … I super duper absolutely love it! I’m lost for words. Really.

Thank you, Noreen. Thank you very very very very much!!!!

I think my wife told Fitzand that it was my birthday because she said he was singing ‘Happy Birthday!’ outside the childcare center. Hahaha! She bought me a green Levi’s tee with some graphics on it … and on it … there are some stuffs like a skull (!!! OMG!!!), guitar and stuffs. What’s going on? Hahahahaha!!! OMG! Coffin camera case … tee with skulls and stuffs? OMG! My parents will be screaming if they know about these!!!!

I’ll definitely go take nicer (I hope) photos of this super cool case. Thanks again. I’ll make sure I ask you for another coffin come Xmas. This time … how about a big one for my E-P1 or DSLR? 😀 Oh … I’ll also make sure you make one for me when I die.
