You are probably already very familiar with Zoom or Houseparty app with the high amount of video calling calls you have been doing during this season. Take advantage of the app ability to get more than 5 people together, you can even throw a virtual birthday party. Set a themed party for your birthday party, set some mood lighting, order tacos, play mobile games, or binge-watch on the latest Netflix shows together. Now, everyone posed for the 'gram!


#3 Write your future self a letter

The best way to celebrate your birthday is to do some reflection and to set new goals. Type out a letter to yourself via FutureMe™'s website and choose a date you wish to receive this letter in your email inbox. It could be the next day, next week, one year later, three years later, or even 10 years later. Send it when you are done choosing a date and then the waiting game begins. No harm, have fun writing!

#4 Catch your latest K-drama shows

While food deliveries and takeout meals are great in its own right, nothing beats a homemade meal that's sometimes even better than what you get at restaurants! How about whipping up a good pasta meal for yourself, followed by making some Kinder Bueno ice creams and Insta-worthy Korean cafe-style drinks? Food is certainly the way to the heart!

#6 Treat yourself with some shopping therapy
