From the title itself, you know what this blog entry is all about!
It becomes a habit that I must blog about my birthday party every year regardless it's big or small, happy or sad. I want to keep them as memories so that when I get old (like 50 years old), I have something sweet to share with my grandchildren.
Last birthday party, I spent my entire three days to celebrate with colleagues and friends. I went for a yummy dinner with my boyfriend and drank my night away at Se7en1nch til 4, 5am, danced like a crazy dancer on stage. It was the most insane and wild party I've ever had. You can read the old entry about the last year party here
This year, thing changed. I decided to celebrate with everyone in just one party, more like a small party with all close friends and colleagues and the best part? I brought my parents to Singapore to celebrate with me this time. It was my best birthday party ever. Believe it or not, this was the first-time parents celebrated birthday party with me since I turned 18, I know I've been away from them too long :(
I booked a room at Ksuites in Orchard Parade Hotel for everyone to sing, dance, play pool, play Wii and drink yet still can be together. The manager at Ksuites was super nice, he offered us a VIP, huge and beautiful room and everyone screamed out loud when they stepped inside. That made me really happy :D It was a courtesy of Mike too. Mike was my boyfriend now. I broke up with Keef 6 months after my 26th birthday. We were looking at different things, so we departed.
Guess I just need to share some photos instead of talking so much
The first group came to the party. From left to right: Me, my dearest boss- Hong, Nicole, mommy, Alicia and Yann. They are also my team-mates, we see each other everyday, share the same goals, missions, worries, and joys. That's how nice my working environment is, not forget to mention my nicest boss of all time sitting there :D
A candid photo of my parents! They were so cold when they first got inside the room and once given a blanket; they immediately shared together. So cute!
Second group joined the party later! Group size grew bigger and bigger!
From left: Andy, Fiona, Nicole, Alicia, Yann, James, Hong, me, Mom, Dad & Mike.
Champagne toast to start the party!
Me & Fiona!
with my cute girl Charmaine who have left the company to further her study. I was so happy to see her again.
Nicole, James & Me.
Mommy looked so happy next to Regina & Fiona.
with an ex- colleague: Lynn, who ever went back to my hometown with me.
Foods & drinks that night. I forgot how much they ordered, but nothing left in the end. All of us were like hungry ghosts.
Amber, Fiona, Regina & me.
Mommy acted cute again with Lynn. Lolz! I can't express how much love I have for her.
Sharon, Fiona & Regina. They are in different team with me in my company but somehow we click pretty well together. :)
Wii time with Amber. I just love her especially her laughter.
Look at mom and dad laughing at the back. So happy to see them laughing.
Game ended. I won, and Amber quit because "it's too tiring".
Leon & his girlfriend just arrived Singapore few days before my party.
Alvin, Sharon, me, Mike and Regina didn't bother to take a photo with us because she was busy with her song
That's Amber being playful when I came to talk to Mike something.
Lovebirds: Alvin- Sharon
Mike dedicated a song to me, and I couldn't stop laughing at his singing. I'm sorry; I didn't want to be rude, but I couldn't help because Mom kept laughing next to me too. She asked me "He sang or he read the lyric".
with my beloved team: Nicole, me, Hong, Alicia, Yan, Lynn & Charmaine (standing)
Dancing time! Seriously, I have no idea what the hell I did with that kind of awkward pose.
Striking an ugly but cute pose! Loving my dress!
Lastly, a group photo of everyone:
Thank you for coming to my party, making it memorable and happy one. I love you all!
Of course, there isn't any birthday party without any
I still remember when I was a kid, the only thing I looked forward to was to receive many birthday presents. Kid's birthday gifts were all books, stationaries, dolls, picture frame, photo albums, sparkle "made in China" earrings, but it could make me so happy to receive it.
Now when being an adult *I hate being an adult*, fewer presents, more cost, but I'm still looking forward to unwrapped all presents I receive. Guess, what important to me are not the presents anymore, it's who still remember my birthday, sincerely wish me all the best, laugh with me on my special day, that's most important. Sometimes, they don't need to give me any present, just their wishes from far away sent to me at the right time; that's the best birthday present ever. I received many those on my emails, facebook. Super happy! :)
Anyway, let me share with you what I've got for myself this year. It all came unexpected!
Cute little Swarovski bears couple! So adorable, aren't they? I'm a super big fan of Swarovski Crystal, you know that?
Another Swarovski gift from Mike :)
Diamond necklace from colleagues. I really didn't expect they would buy me this gift. Good thing comes in a small package! YES! Thank you, guys
Earrings from Lynn. She apparently knows my style :D
La Senza sleepwear from Charmaine, and it's in pink. Love it!
That's enough to show how much people around know about me. :D Why am I so lucky?
Not forget to mention an enormous bunch of roses sent to my office in the early morning. It was such a big surprise for me.
Thank you everyone who still remember my birthday, who joined me in my party and who have been supporting me physically or spiritually. I will not be who I am now without your encouragement and support. You know who you are that I'm talking about, and I'm just so grateful for whatever I have.
Thank you, I love you. And yes, I officially turned 27 in case you are wondering.
