Thanks to those who greeted me on my special day! :)
The eve of my birthday didn’t turn out so well. A get-together with a few of my friends from Brunei didn’t push through as planned, as most of them cancelled at the last minute. I was pretty frustrated the entire night and the poor boyfriend was the one who had to deal with my crazy mood swings! Thanks, my dear! I seriously don’t know how you can put up with me! :)
My sister and I ended up seeing only one (out of 9!) of those who initially confirmed. We spent the evening chit-chatting over coffee and fraps. A lot of reminiscing about past loves, adventures and craziness, as well as sharing our present lives. We still had fun.
Spent most of my birthday being harrassed at work. The first day of the month is always so hectic at a company who deals with sales and marketing! But all that was rewarded afterwards during dinner with my family and my boyfriend.
Great food + great company is always the best way to spend a special day.
Food at Fish and Co. was delish. The complimentary birthday brownie with vanila ice cream, plus the song the waiters sang and dedicated to me was a great treat too. I hate literally being the center of attention and having everyone in the restaurant turn around to look at me, but it was still fun. Free dessert anyway! Haha!
And because we didn’t want to go home too early, we headed off to Timezone to play a few games and to get our pics taken. :)
The youngsters: my bro, my sis, my bebe and I.
With mom and dad. We’re one happy family! =)

Happy Birthday to the most patient person I know. You know you’re the only one who can put up with my weird and unpredictable mood swings. XP
Thanks for comforting me and making me laugh today – every single day, actually. :)
I LOVE YOU! ♥
Make him happy, guys! :)
I Turned 22 Yesterday

I’m not the type who goes and throws a big bash during my birthday. I always opt for a simple celebration with family and friends. That’s why when I turned 22 yesterday (June 1), all I had was a simple lunch with my girls and dinner with my family.
My day didn’t really start off too well. I woke up rushing to school and feeling sick. I had a stuffed nose, an aching tummy (PMS!) and an irritating cough that wouldn’t go away. Come to think of it, it’s actually my first time to be sick on my birthday. Lucky, lucky me! 8-} But that didn’t let me ruin my day though. For our 3-hour long lunch break, I treated the girls to some chicken, pizza, pasta and cheesecake at Chef D’Angelo. We ate more than we needed to. Over-stuffing ourselves until we literally couldn’t breathe anymore!
We went back to school and I had class ’til half past seven in the evening. I was exhausted, but my bebe and my family took me to ATC for dinner at Italianni’s. I was feeling more sick by this time, but I still had a great time with the people I love the most. <3
I received a handful of greetings through calls, text messages, emails and friendster messages. I even received some from people I never really expected to hear from. :)
On my birthday, I didn’t complain much about feeling old. Instead, I felt overjoyed because I was remided that — I am loved. ^_,~;;

My birthday is closing in once again. Every year I find myself pondering over how old I’m getting. Twenty two. I cannot believe I’m already turning 22!
Ok, I’ve been aware for some time that I am actually getting old. A handful of my friends are already out in the real world, settling into their own respective careers. There are some that have moved out of their parents’ house and have started living on their own. There are also those who have marched down the aisle into married-hood.
I was tossing and turning in bed last night. I was restless and I couldn’t get myself to sleep. I found myself pondering over what the future would be like: all the responsibiities that I’ll be faced with. I have to admit that it frightens me a little. What if I things don’t turn out the way I imagine and wish them to be? What if I suddenly wake up and realize that all I ever worked for is not what I really want in life?
Then I realized, there are times when I really do worry too much! I should just let things happen for themselves. Let things fall into place. If they don’t turn out the way I planned, then that’s fine. It won’t be the end of the world. I’ll just have to deal with it then. I should just savour and enjoy my life right now, because I’m confident that I will get through whatever life-bump hits me along the way. Besides, I’ve always believed that He doesn’t burden us with problems we cannot handle. =)
