Turning Twenty Seven
Posted on: 4th of June 2010 | Under: Life & Love

You know you’re getting old when you start saying that you’re a certain age, months before you even turn that age.

Yes, for some reason, I’ve been absentmindedly saying that I’m already twenty seven years old, even if I just turned that age last Tuesday.  And no, I don’t think I’m in denial about being old. For some reason, age seem to have stopped being important after twenty five. =P

My Birthday celebration started a day early this year. The husband likes to spoil me rotten! :) Upon my request, we went out for a quick Japanese dinner, followed by a movie (SATC 2). I have been craving for sushi for weeks, so it was about time I finally satisfied both my tummy and palate.

I love my sushi!

At Nihon Mura, The Cathay, about to devour my sushi. I don’t remember how many plates I had, but it was certainly more than what I normally eat! =P

Salmon sashimi goodness!

And of course, what’s a trip to a Japanese restaurant without having sashimi. I love my sashimi! <3

We had several plates of sushi, some yakitori, tokayaki balls and the salmon sashimi which we happily downed with hot green tea. And is if we weren’t full enough, we even munched on ice cream and chocolates during the movie too. =P

On the night of my Birthday, we headed to Clarke Quay and had Persian for dinner.

The Wedding
Posted on: 15th of July 2009 | Under: Life & Love

Did I mention that I turned 26 last June 1? I guess I didn’t, didn’t I? That’s because I was happily running around being a Maid of Honor the entire day. :)

Wedding photos, as promised:

I love these two! They made me run around on my birthday (with only 2 hours sleep, might I add!?), but I enjoyed every minute of it! <3

I missed the first half of the Gate Keeping, because I was the last one to get my hair done, but I still managed to join in on the fun when we tortured the guys into doing things for us. LOL!

A Night of Food, Drinks and Rockband

Celebrating JR’s 28th Birthday started off at midnight when I woke him up from his nap and surprised him with a slice of oreo cheesecake and the link to his online gift.

It was nice seeing him read through all the messages, but it was even more heartwarming seeing him all teary-eyed by the end of it. <3

To Someone Special
Posted on: 18th of April 2009 | Under: Life & Love, Shoutous

Almost every year, I try to come up with online gifts for the boyfriend‘s Birthday. It has somehow become a yearly tradition of mine. The first couple of years, I was always eager to come up with different things to surprise him, but I lost the creativity and drive to create them for the past three years. Those were also the years that I spent very little time on my internet life and more time on my actual one, so I guess I somehow had an excuse. =P

For the benefit of those who weren’t present in those creative years of mine, here’s the list of the “online gifts” that I gave him:

  • 22nd Bday – This was actually before we got together. =P One of the many “projects” Rachel and I did. =D
  • 23rd Bday -Made this with the help of Rachel again. =D
  • 24th Bday – A simpler one-page greeting.
  • 25th Bday – Just a blog greeting.
  • 26th Bday – I didn’t make anything online =P
  • 27th Bday – No online gift again. But I flew here to Singapore to spend several days with him. I was still working back in Manila then.

Today is his 28th Birthday. For my online gift this year (I finally had some time on my hands!), I compiled greetings from a handful of his family and friends. A total of 46 greetings this time! =D
