#BIRTHDAY2013: The Malaysian-German-Korean Way

Like the old me, I was not expecting to have a “grand” celebration for my birthday. The fact that I’m having my birthday in another country is quite a feat already. But, the impulsive me thought of wandering the city of Daegu alone, a day before my birthday. I also planned to check in a cheap hostel that night and just comeback to Gumi on my actual birth day, which is November 3rd. That sounds like an adventure… or not.

Anyway, on November 2nd, I visited Daegu and spent the whole day there (I shall write this as another blogpost.). It was quite a “celebration” already for me since I met Korean friends that I wasn’t expecting. Before watching a movie, we had a dinner at some restaurant downtown. It was a smothered pork stew dish that I forgot the name for the nth time. We watched Thor afterwards at 4D, fucking 4D guys, 4D. It was beyond awesome. Chairs moving. Air pressure valves shooting to my ears. Water sprinkling in front of my face. Some punching actions happening at my back. And sweet scent during Thor and Jane’s kissing scene. 4D indeed! Then, we hopped into a drinking place which specializes on Mcggeorie (rice wine) and spent the rest of the night there before I helplessly dragged myself to my hostel because of being “drunk.”

Fastforward to November 3rd, I woke up early (like 7:30 am) and had a quick shower. I grabbed my free breakfast (some toast and jam, coffee, and tea) at that hostel whilst reading and responding to birthday greetings on facebook. I was running on 4 hours of sleep but hey, I was able to survive train rides and bus rides. I took a shower again right after arriving at my dormitory then resumed to responding to those heartwarming messages.

I received a Kakao message from my Malaysian friend (Naimah) that we shall meet 4 pm. I agreed since it was planned that I shall take them to a pizza dinner or what. We were talking on our way and little did I know that we were heading to the Cheo un dae. And there I was surprised with these bunch of guys!

These guys are the craziest. I am very thankful to have met these friends. They kind of fulfill my longing for my friends back in the Philippines. With them, my birthday had been extra special. I mean, it wasn’t the grandest of all surprises to many, but for me, this is one of the books.

We went to a small Indonesian restaurant just here in Gumi for dinner. If you haven’t seen the list, well a bunch of the top delicious food in the world are from Indonesia (nasi goreng, rendang, satay, etc.) so I guess this isn’t a bad choice at all.

More than this sumptuous meal, I am so much happier because I was not really expecting this kind of day at all. It will surely be one of the best memories that I’ll be bringing back in the Philippines. For the nth time, I shout thanks and hugs to my friends here in Korea. Kamsahamnida! ^^

    Happy belated birthday. I’ve never visited outside of California. Well, if you count Nevada as traveling outside of California? But I really don’t count that as traveling. I’ve heard that in certain parts of the Philippines there are some cannibals that reside there? I heard that it was a false statement to scare me. Anyway, I really don’t consider Harukami a book if that is manga? Manga is okay – but I prefer real books to Japanese anime (sorry that’s just me though – not bashing!).

      Thanks for the greeting Aileen! It’s too late. The cake’s gone. Haha! It would be great if you will visit Korea this December but prepare for winter, I guess. It’s really cold in here right now.

      You should. Rice wine is in the sweeter side of alcohol so it must be fine. πŸ˜‰

    Thanks Deedee for the greetings!

    Watching a movie in 4D here in Korea is much the same as watching a 3D film in the Philippines so I did not mind the price.

    And hey, I hope you’ll have a good one too. Your idea sounds good. Red velvet cakes are too die for and it would be extra awesome with a movie with your boyfie. When is your birthday though?

    It was awesome in 4D right? What movie did you watch though?

    These photos turned out awesome, too. Very crisp, very good focus, and great subject matter. Keep doing you!

    Amazing – you have some wonderful friends. I am really happy for you that they surprised you and gave you a wonderful time for your birthday. Also, happy birthday to you of course! πŸ™‚

    I’m a little thrilled you consider Indonesian food some of the best, I’m part Indonesian myself but never felt any kind of pride for being part of the culture. So that was really nice to hear.

    Toast looks yummy. I love plain toast haha. Also I haven’t ever seen a 4D movie, since I don’t really enjoy watching movies, but your experience reminds me of those 4D rides at theme parks where you get water splashed on you and chairs shaking and stuff like that. πŸ˜›

    • Reply chestervizconde November 9, 2013 at 12:54 pm

      Thanks for those greetings Georgie! I agree that these friends made my day extra special.

      Yes, even instant noodles, Indonesian brands are atop. I am really looking forward to visitng Indonesia really soon.

      When I first heard of 4D, I thought of the same thing actualy. But the experience was more than that and it was beyond awesome.

      The 4d’s price here is almost the same as 3d’s price at the Philippines. Maybe just a little more expensive.
