Your Birthday?

7 APR 2010: Bumped into a scenario lately where Birthday Reminder in FB shows birthday of my friend as today, but my own calendar stated it would be the day after. Well, lots of other friends sent birthday wishes to him through FB. Anyhow, I’ve verified with his special friend and obviously this friend purposely put a fake birth date in FB.

Somehow I believe people nowadays are becoming more dependent on such technologies to keep themselves updated with stuff around them, especially when it comes to dates. But it’s always sweet to receive wishes from someone on your birthday, isn’t it? I know this could be tricky and I hate dates as well. These are few ways that I use to keep track of them:

- 1st priority: Brain (VIP).
- 2nd priority: Stores in cellphone’s calendar with reminder.
- 3rd priority: Marks in office’s table calendar.
- The rest: FB’s birthday reminder.

How do you remember those special dates? Or you don’t actually care about it?

Medie007: Now where shall I keep this date? Maybe just FB la..hehe, joking. Let me put it in m cellphone (Now u know where u r).

Danny: Sept babies are all famous with their beauty and charm. Actually I also have a long list on Sept. Maybe parents were all too free during CNY, more production during that time. :)

Leon: Older in term of age? I know it's tough, especially when you have so many of friends!!! LOL. Love your blog too!!

SK: The table calendar thingy is quite useful that I mark all my events there. And I'd be SO happy seeing the weekend dates getting full. A bit abnormal hor? Ah, thanks for remembering mine. And I have your date in my heart too, so manis kan? Haha.

Danny: Aiya, sama2 lo. You are not less too. Masih hitam manis kan.

L²: At least you're a good son and bro lo. Others, no comment. Pity your partner saje lo. LOL
