That’s right! 6 June 1998 – the date where the awesome moi was born! Today is my 19th Birthday and it is a special one thanks to my parents and their excellent plotting.
I’ve mentioned in my Travel Diaries that I’m meeting my mum and brother here in Abu Dhabi, but I never mentioned what happened a few hours after I put up that post. The doorbell rang and it was my dad cutting a work trip short to surprise me! Turns out mum wanted the whole family to be together for my birthday and it took quite a lot of planning on their part. I’m so happy and so excited.
I found this tag on a couple of blogs and it seems really nice, so I present to you – The It’s My Birthday Tag!
Can you name celebrities who celebrate their birthday on the same day?
So Google gave me this link and there were a couple but the one I identified instantly – Ryan Higa a.k.a Nigahiga
Another face that looked kind of familiar was Jason Isaacs and when I searched further, turns out I share my birthday with Lucius Malfoy! That can’t bode well (and yet so cool!)
Another name that I found on IMDb is Aubrey Anderson-Emmons a.k.a. Lily Tucker-Pritchett from Modern Family. That’s cool because she’s adorable!
Is your birthday a (national) holiday?
Here’s a list. My favorites are Drive-in Movie Day and National Hunger Awareness Day. National Applesauce Cake Day sounds pretty nice too.
Somewhat less fun, who died on your birthday?
There’s a whole list on Wikipedia but the only name I recognized was Randolph Churchill, son of the British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill.
What’s your star sign?
What’s your Chinese sign?
The Tiger (RARR!!)
On which weekday were you born?
I was born on a Saturday – always a weekend person ❤
What song was on number 1 in the charts when you were born?
The Boy is Mine by Brandy and Monica. I’ve never heard it but I intend to now. Here’s the link in case you want to check it out too.
How was the weather when you were born?
I don’t quite know but given my knowledge of the place, it would’ve been boiling hot since its peak summer time in the months of May and June.
Anything important ever happen on your birthday?
I only included things from the Wikipedia list that happened after I was born
- 2002 – Eastern Mediterranean event. A near-Earth asteroid estimated at ten meters in diameter explodes over the Mediterranean Sea between Greece and Libya. The resulting explosion is estimated to have a force of 26 kilotons, slightly more powerful than the Nagasaki atomic bomb.
- 2004 – Tamil is established as a “classical language” by the President of India, Dr A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, in a joint sitting of the two houses of the Indian Parliament.
- 2005 – In Gonzales v. Raich, the United States Supreme Court upholds a federal law banning cannabis, including medical marijuana.
- 2016 – Major news outlets report Hillary Clinton as having become the presumptive nominee for US president, the first female in a major party to do so in the country’s 240-year history
None of this interests me as such but what I do remember is my 8th birthday was one where a lot of horror movies were realized because it was in 2006 i.e. 06.06.06 – 666 being the Number of the beast (muahahahahahahahaha!)
And that’s all for today! Hope you enjoyed this post and getting to know just a little more about my birth date.
Hope you have a great day! 🙂
