I am 31

Birth is special, birthday isn’t, that is what I believe. What ever… it has been 31 years since a very confused me started breathing. 31 years and 9 months since I was commissioned. Here I am, wondering what the heck I am doing!

I haven’t celebrated my birthday since I turned 16. Since then I have given treats (cakes) 3 times. The first when I was an intern at Bank of Ceylon - Kurunegala. The other 2 times was my first and second year at University of Peradeniya.

Mum, S Z Bangsajayah, retired primary teacher at St. Anne’s College Kurunegala, wanted have a cake. So I got a cake, some sweets and candles ‘3’ and ‘1’. Took some photos. We had a small party and some visitors. I changed my policy, because I think it is time for me to change.
