Today, 8th of September, is my 28th birthday.
Last night I completely finished shooting 5 Jingga and as everyone was clapping and cheering while the director was giving her thank you speech, I was sitting in the corner quietly, like I always do when I finish a project..... There is a happiness because the job is done, but also a sadness cause we are saying good bye to our time together.
I thanked the director, Ngai Yuen, who cast me for the role of Melly for the opportunity. 5 JINGGA is my first tv drama and I have learnt so much from the experience. I look forward to being involved with more projects with her.
I also said bye to the poor girl who Melly makes life miserable for.
"I really don't mean all of those horrible things I say to you, you know!" I say to Saleha.
"I know! There is a big difference between Melly and Sasha!" she replies
Knowing that in a few hours I would be another year older, it also made me think about my life up until this point and wonder what the future holds.
So how will I be celebrating my birthday? With the people who mean the most to me... my family..
My greatest regret is that I know I will never live long enough to do all the things I want to do as I have so many interests and there is so much to learn in this world. My greatest hope is that I have many, many birthdays so I can try to at least experience most of them.
