It's fabulous being 38!


On Saturday, as soon as I got up, Laura gave this to me. She had drawn me a picture to wish me Happy Birthday. Notice that Mama is the only one she has coloured. *whisper* That's because I'm her favouritest person in the whole wide world. See also how Papa wears a crown. I do not know why there is a number for each of us. The sleeping one is our helper.

That afternoon, a few of my friends came over with their children to spend a day by the pool. It was cloudy the whole morning, so I was thinking of activities to keep the children occupied if it should rain. Blow bubbles just outside my condo unit was one option, face painting was another option. I was ready to cook up a batch of hand paints! My friend called on her way over asking if we were still going swimming as it was drizzling. It wasn't drizzling where we were but definitely a grey day. Amazingly, as soon as we said, "OK, let's go to the pool now", the sun broke through the clouds, the clouds floated away and we had a sunny day which was perfect for swimming!



My friend, Lia, and her 3-year-old twin sons baked and decorated this cake for me. It was soooooo rich! YUMM!! Thank you, Lia, Jamie and Josh!



PT was going to take me out for a romantic dinner on Saturday night. We were going to an amazing place which was recommended by his friend but we would swing by to Champ's in Bandar Utama to pick up a bottle of champagne for dinner. PT waited in the car while I went up to get the bottle of champagne. The lift doors opened and I saw our friend, Kurt, who said he was going to the Hard Rock Cafe for drinks. Hmmm... Something was up. Then I turned towards the restaurant in time to see another friend, Andy, duck back into the restaurant. Inside Champ's, at the far end of the restaurant is a raised dining area. I walked in and saw the area decorated beautifully with streamers. I walked through the streamers and saw a group of surprised diners who stared at me, who then shouted "SURPRISE!!!"



Lots of good food, good company and drinks!
Thank you, PT, for organising the party for me. I love you!
Thank you Pauline and your little "elves" who put up the fabulous decorations! PT forgot to take a picture of the "private room".
Thank you, Andy, for keeping me in suspense and erasing all doubts about a surprise party. Kurt, you lie very badly but you and Andy know what a girl wants!
Thank you, Don, for drawing the wonderful picture. I can't believe the likeness!
Thank you, Lia and your little helpers, for baking the wonderfully sinful chocolate birthday cake.
Thank you, all my friends who turned up for the party and for the wonderful gifts I received.
Thank you, Lilian, for making the beautiful cake that was the talk of the party. If you want to take a look at the cake, scroll down
