Happy February! I thought it'd be a good idea to dedicate the first post of the month to myself so, sorry for the lack of postings :p I can't believe it's been a year since my last birthday post!
This year is really toned down compared to last year, which is what I hoped for after the crazy planning for my 21st bday party last year. Thank you to those friends who dropped me really sweet messages :) I decided to disable my birthdate on FB this year because old already lah, no need so many wishes haha. Those who matter most will remember without any prompting, and that's what I want most - sincere wishes from the heart. It feels great to be remembered by the ones you care about :)
Had a small advanced celebration at home yesterday. Wanted to go out for dinner with my family on the actual day but dad has a dinner to attend so we celebrated a day earlier. My aunts, uncles and cousins who lives nearby came over to celebrate with me and dad rushed home from meeting as well. I really appreciate that. My third aunt baked me a lemon cheese & brownie cake which tastes AMAZING. Sorry, you can't have a slice cos it's all in our tummy now XD Thank you Sanyi for the cake! She so cute, tried to play the Happy Birthday song on my sis' ukulele as well heh. And thank you parents, gramma and Aunt Mary for the angpaos!
Cake from The Baking Sisters
Birthday kiss from Jeffy boy!
No elaborate gifts, no elaborate celebration. Bf brought me to savour my favourite food. Woohoo! And a little shopping in between at Komtar JBCC. My favourite activity in the world! :p I really wanted to get a pair of new shoes from Charles&Keith but I felt so poor because I still needed to fix my camera lens, so I decided against it. Sigh.. Next time then. In the end I got some lip products from Sephora and bf got me a mini Lavendar Vanilla from Bath&Body works cos I was contemplating really long if I should get it or not lol. I really didn't want him to spend a bomb on my gift but thank you bb, for the Victoria Secret Bombshell Pink Diamonds perfume with a tiny card as well! Wore it today for the first time and it smells awesome! It totally surprised me because I never ever asked for it or even mentioned that I want to get a perfume before lol.
Lunch at Sushi Mentai @ Taman Mount Austin. All sushi plates priced at RM1.80 and RM2.80. Super worth it and yummy as well! Totally recommend to go try :D
Birthday outfit! Details of the outfit will be up soon~
Isn't the bottle just gorgeous?
While we were shopping, the bf kept reminding me that dinner reservation was on at 7pm and we should leave soon. I was like, chill man it's just Absolute Thai, the place won't be crowded... I've been craving Thai food for the longest time and I already knew where he was gonna bring me. What I didn't know was that he had contacted a few of my close friends and got them to come and give me a surprise dinner! Totally was not expecting it when we walked into an almost empty Absolute Thai and suddenly my friends shouted 'Surprise!'. Ahhh so sweet lah thank you guys so much for taking the time out to spend my birthday with me and those who couldn't make it because it was so last minute, thank you still because it's the thought that counts :) xx
Thank you Dan, Cheryl and Erica for the dinner! Just a simple dinner with great friends already made me very very happy :)
Most importantly, thank you my love for planning the surprise! <3
The most meaningful gifts ever :') Food, cosmetics and jewellery.. You guys really know me well haha XD
Thank you Cheryl for the homemade cookies and she even printed a label so it looks like those in the cafes! The cookies tastes super good btw, not too sweet, just how I like it.
Erica made me the "I'm feeling 22!" sign which is such a great prop for photos! It's sitting nicely on my mantlepiece now :p And thanks for the gorgeous necklace as well!
Dan got me a Blue Chalcedony crystal bracelet which is supposed to represent good communication. The funniest part was when I said "Omg it fits perfectly!" and he was like, "Of course lah, I had to take out 3 beads to fit your small wrist you know! I still think need to take out one more." HAHAHAHA thanks thanks, for the meaningful gifts each year XD
Wan Chyin was super sweet as well because she drove all the way from Skudai to Pelangi just to pass my gift (glittery lip gloss) to Erica because she couldn't make it for the dinner. Damn touched T.T
This year, my biggest wish would be of course to find a job soon. An even bigger bonus would be to find a job that makes me happy (and pays well?). Heh. I also want my family, bf and friends to be healthy and happy, because when they're happy, it makes me happy :) Lastly, I wish that I'll be stronger, physically and mentally, and I'll stop crying as much. Dai gor lui jor~ Haha. Oh can I also hope that I can earn enough money soon to fix my camera? Haha.
I really couldn't ask for more. Happy birthday to me :)
