birthday girl: the cheryna pires chronicles

Originally uploaded by jennywenny
My e-mail, cheryna_27 started back in 1997 (or 1998, I can't remember). I was 15 years old. Both number 2 and number 7 were my favourite numbers so I combined them both and put 27 instead of 2 or 7. The name cheryna was a long history:)

The name Cher Horowitz who portrait the modern days Emma from Jane Austen was one of my inspiration. I was fifteen and I thought that the movie Clueless was somewhat intresting. I mean, Alicia Silverstone was a cute and adorable creature during 90s way before Taylor Swift or Miley Cyrus came into the picture:)

I did not escaped the boyband influence. In the first album of KRU, Canggih was a song called cherrina:)

When I was in form four, I then fell in love with the song Believe sang by Cher, one of ibu's favourite singer. I was so into the song until I've decided that Cher was such a cool name.

The so-called romance part of this name was when I met a guy in the chatzone whom I called Ry. He was 6 years elder than me. When we met, he was still in university. We met once (with the help of my cousins) when he was on his raya break (because he was from Seremban too!) He was so handsome but I was still in school so I've decided to be just friends. We lost contact when I was in form five and I didn't pay that much of attention because we met in the cyber world (who knows he might be a fraud?)

But during my freshman year, I had learned that all his stories were true. He was the sportsman in that boarding school, he studied Geology and he was indeed an orphan. I found that out from my seniors who were his juniors in school.

So, Cher + Ry. Na came from the word La Nina which means "Crazy Woman" in French. When MIRC was a hot stuff, you need to make yourself covered using a nickname so I used La Nina. I wanted to change my e-mail at that time, but I couldn't use La Nina. Therefore, I combined all Cher, Ry and Na which equals to Cheryna.

Cher + Ry + Na = Cheryna.

Since then for almost 12 years, I have been using this name in Forum, E-mails and my own blog. I'm not claiming any ownership for this name, however, considering there was a song called cheryna:)

So, that was how Cheryna_27 was created. I always got question like,

"Are you 27 years old?" from almost everyone who saw my e-mail. One of those people who asked was my ex-boyfriend, Sepet. He then called me 27 instead of my own name.

Ironically, nobody ask that questions. Perhaps, it is well-known physically that I am 27 years old this year beginning from today - 13th October 2009. Cheryna is 12 years old but the person who holds the nickname is 27. Today.

I'm not going to make a cliche statement for my birthday today. I'm not going to ask for any expensive presents.

If you have the time to honour my birthday today, I will appreciate for you to visit these blogs who have been linked to this blog more than a year:

which introduced me to the likelihood of Bendul, Zara, Mizzamy, CheQemm, SiRibenMerah, and miera a.k.a. merr. His comments made my day and will always be.

Who introduced me to the names like Yunus Badawi, Sonata Anak Kancil, and Zyma Samad (and others too~!). She will leave her comment in this house regardless whether the host is/not at home - I appreciate that a lot!

Who made the world of culinary blogging a very intresting journey by introducing great people like MrMrsFaiz and Cik Wan. (please try their recipes! I managed to cook butter prawn at last!)

The journey of romance which never fail to intrigue me - from office mates to couple, to engagement and the preparation of wedding and the wedding last fortnight:)

e) Kak Neeza, Fairy and other blogs who have been supportive especially during the period of The Chrysanthemum Story:)

You can also visit
LOL's blog:
- she was celebrating her birthday on 10th of October - it's still not too late to wish her!:)
Syayassir's blog:
- Her son, Dariwisy, is celebrating his birthday this month:)
Kak Zana's blog:
- she's celebrating her birthday in another 2 days:) * edited

I know there'll me more names next year, insyaAllah. I might have forgotten certain names, I'm sorry. I'm giving the priority to those who have been throughout the journey from being a 26 years old to 27 years old Sha.

Everyday is my birthday because of these great people who are writing their great blogs!
