Happy Birthday, Danny!

After reading Danny’s self deprecating remarks on his blog, I pondered for some time if I should include this. It is not your expectation that someone from VAMP does, and even though it does put you in the centre of attention, I think a healthy form of love and attention is always necessary for the growth and nuturing of the soul.

I am doing this and saying it because I want to, not because I have to, and I beseech those who write comments to do so as well. Birthdays are and always should be joyous occasions. We can’t expect our friends to remember it but it’s sweet when they do. Since some of us are new friends of yours, we might not remember it as well, so this is a date that will be recycled in our calendars in years to come.

Do not hate yourself because there is already to much of that in this world. Learn to love yourself and carry on giving. Allow others the opportunity to give love to you as well because it is only through the process of giving, that true joy emerges.

You have been a generous, funny and supportive friend. Allowing us the opportunity to contribute to this site instead of sole administration, you have given us a wonderful present. Contributing your funny comments and your sunny personality helps brighten the gloomiest of days, so never forget your wonderful gift. Lastly, I have seen you giving support to your friends, so all in all, you are a wonderful friend.

If you have to harbour on the pain, then think of the pains your mother took to give birth and the people who took care of you. Let this day be a day of rejoice for your existence in this world and an acknowledgement for their efforts. Thank them and appreciate them for they have done a good job. I first thanked my mother a few years ago and she was moved to tears, and I think it’s time we thought of them on our birthdays too. My grandmother is no longer here, but I know she knows from her heart that I thank her every human day I have left in my life.

Happy Birthday Danny! Wipe away your years and sorrow, my dear friend. It’s a sunny day out there waiting for you …


Akina fanboy since 14. Still undecided which are his top ten favourite Akina tracks as it's mission impossible. Digs "Everlasting Love" a whole lot more than the average Akina fan.

  1. Danny – Happy Birthday…

    Akina Loves you!! 🙂

    PS. I’m a little lost when I read your blog so I’m not sure if I understand what was going on. In any case, life is too short to be unhappy. As long as you did not bother anyone, you should be yourself and do whatever you like to do and feel.

  2. hi there Jamez, you just applied an entire bottle of Zambak (or is it Zambuk? the green soothing ointment my ah mah used to put apply on my wounds and cuts when i get them as a kid) on me. thank you so much for this.

    i kickstarted my birthday today with a ten hour sleep. it’s a rainy cool sunday afternoon. i love the rain. it’s got a calming effect, the ionizing that’s taking place in the air always makes it magical for me.

    i plan to spend the rest of today in quiet reflection. most probably drive up to my mum’s and give her the bag i bought her the day before. it’s a really nice Kate Spade i spotted when i was in Bangkok, but it was at least 3 times the price over there. =)

    you are right, i’ve never thanked my mum explicitly for bringing me to this world. i will do so today.

  3. That’s good. My grandmother swears by that Zambuk too! That’s what friends are for! 😉

    Enjoy your day and thanks for taking the advice. Hope your mother loved it as much as mine. 🙂
