My Birthday - Part 6

Wow, didn't expect that I get to post my birthday until "part 6". Yea, this post is unexpected. My birthday is over for a week already, and I still get blessings and surprises. Last Saturday, I got this cute little present from SiiKeng and Sin Ai from Pandan fellowship. Guess what is it? Kenot guess leh? Hahaha. This is so cute until kenot ah! Until I kenot not love it. Thanks u guys for remembering me :) I'm very touched.
Later that Sunday, Chia asked me out to treat me dinner ^^ Being as greedy as I could be, I'm happy as usual kena belanja eat "hao liao". Hahaha. We had dinner at Fireman in Jaya one, where I have my piano class. Jaya One is a nice place to chill. No shopping though, only eating places and offices. But good thing is, its not as crowded as those shopping malls on a Sunday night. Before dinner, we chilled out at starbucks. Here are some shots to share.

My Birthday - Part 5

I got the pic from Ahui's camera. Not bad I would say, not bad... Ahui's skill getting better ^^ So, here are more photos to share with my readers :) Most of them are only me (yikes...not quite biasa being center of a camera's attention..) So, here you'll find shots of my birthday song (yep, young dreams sing for me in the restaurant :P), cutting the "cake" and me showing off my present. Hahaha.

Cadbury in Disguise

Tomorrow @ Pandan youth fellowship we will be celebrating birthdays for sept - april babies. Ya, its a long stretch because we missed out the sept - dec batch last year. Oops :p Oh well, I'm partially in charge of this, and iIm responsible for the gifts / cards. I thought of making cards at first, but then I came out with another idea which save more time and something new - decorated candy bars!! Oh, forgot to mention I got the inspiration from Kurtis' blog. Yep, hidden behind these fancy papers are nothing more than cadbury chocolate bars. Hehehe. I took off the original wrapping, keep the foil, and designed another wrapping of my own. Not sure if everybody are into chocolates, but I hope they'll like these "cadbury in disguise" :)

My First Order (Part 3)

Ok, continuing my framed art projects. This is for the dining room, which is painted in sky blue. I picked blue, white and black as the combination. I find them not as striking as the last 2 I would say. Guess I need to try harder for the kitchen then :P

Today I feel kinda blue just like these pics here because my camera broke down. I have the last batch of pictures of another project which I will post later, then after that I guess I would not be able to post pictures here for a while :(

My Birthday - Part 4

Ok, this will be the final post for my birthday :) My brother not only remembers my birthday, he asked me out :) Due to the inconveniency, we hardly see other in KL. So I'm glad my birthday could be a reason we meet up. Hahaha. Chris suggested Karaoke which i thought it's a good idea bacause tt's been a while since I went to K already. So we ended up at Neway Karaoke @ One U. With dinner buffet, we ate our hearts out, and sang our lungs out. Wat a treat and man, my brother can scream!.... Hahaha. Its great meeting him up, and Chris too. They brought along 2 other friends, Alan and Bala (an indian that speaks flawless chinese!). Thanks for celebrating my birthday with me guys :)

Other than all these celebrations, I have received numerous sms, msn, and facebook messages. I feel very blessed and loved. Thank you Lord for everybody you've put in my life and may You bless them richly. Thanks to all (yes, even the shortest sms counts!) who has made this day special for me.

My Birthday - Part 3

I had a little surprise for my parents during my birthday this year. I arranged with Ruidi, who's in Miri, to deliver a bouquet of flowers and a card to my parents for me. I posted the card to him before that and he ordered the flowers for me. This is to show my appreciation to my parents for bringing me to this world. Thank you Ruidi for making this happen. The flowers are lovely. I really appreciate it. Also, thanks to Marlene for the idea. I actually copied her idea. Thanks to Jo, for taking the picture and video for me ^^ I know I'm very ngim jim la. Your flowers ah, next year la.... during your birthday la...Hahaha. And last but not least, thank you Ah Di, Ah Mi.. Thanks for the birthday song (they sang to me over the phone - all so loud and clear, that I was paiseh, if anyone in my office could hear... :p) Anyways, thanks for everything, I love you.

Here is a video and some pictures to share.

My Birthday - Part 2

I had my birthday dinner with Young Dreams @ Nando's Pavillion KL. I've had Nando's once and I was craving for its peri peri taste. So we decided to have dinner there. Also, out of coincidence that Ahui was in town for a training conference. Pity him to rush here though. He looked really tired. After dinner, we went for a movie - Tale of Despereaux. Very very cute mouse. Love the animation and graphics. Neways, I'm grateful for Young Dreams, who has never failed to remember my birthday :) I thank God for bringing us together and our friendship all these years. Here are some pictures to share. I got more pictures at Ah Hui's camera. Will update again. Stay tuned ^^

Iggy & Yvonne got me a very sweet gift. First of all, really nice wrapping paper :) The present is nothing fancy and nothing expensive (I think the frame didnt cost much), but I'll treasure it. You'll understand why later as you read along :) The gift is a picture we (Young Dreams) took recently in Miri, couple days before Chinese New Year. Being scattered around in Miri and KL all these years, we hardly could gather with all 6 of us together, let alone get a complete picture. This year, by God's grace, we had the chance to meet up and take a complete picture. Time flies and wow, its been 10 years already! Over the years, many things have changed - our life, our partners, our job, our 'size' (oops :P), our goals, our perspectives..... but some things remain the same. Our friendship didnt change, our determination to pursue our dreams didnt change and definitely our pose didnt change! Hahaha. 10 years already and still that 'cow' pose!! I wonder how we'd look like as we pose like this when we are seventy! Oh, special thanks for Yvonne for taking this lovely picture for us. This is precious. I've put it on my desk, where I spend 80% of my time at home. :)

Also later I realized, this picture is our last picture of Young Dreams as 6 singles. Few days after this picture was taken, Ruidi got married :) Congrats dude.
