My Happy Birthday

Friday, August 24, 2012

There was no big celebration but it's the happiest birthday I've had so far as an adult. P and Via were with me and that's all that mattered. The rest was icing. My birthday was on a Saturday but for P, the day starts at sundown or 6PM on Friday and ends 6PM on Saturday. So we had dinner on Friday night at one of our favorite restaurants, Banana Leaf at the Podium. We ordered the same dishes we always order because they're our favorites: Roti with Curry Dip, Kangkung with Sambal Sauce, Tilapia with Sambal Sauce and this time, P ordered additional Ribs again in Sambal Sauce. He usually has Sambal with everything he eats.

Since the weather was bad (this was the weekend before the flooding), we decided to just go home after dinner. As we walked back, the rain started pouring when we were halfway home and we had to run all the way back. We were soaking wet when we got home.

The next day after church, we picked up my birthday cake with marshmallow icing from Goldilocks. It's my favorite, birthday cakes with marshmallow icing that is. I always order a simple one on my birthday. This time, I went for a Disney Princess cake for Via's benefit. She's the one all dressed up like it's her birthday. She loved the birthday cake because the castle was real. She can play with it. The doors open and the turrets light up. There are also the three princess figurines. She wants to be a princess and wear princess dresses. I bet a bridesmaid dress from WeddingtonWay would really make her day. She just might get her wish sometime soon. A bridesmaid or a flower girl in a wedding - soon I hope :)


I love the iPod Nano P gave me as a birthday gift. He always chooses the perfect gift. I can tell that there's a lot of thought that go into the gifts he buys. He said I can use it at the Gym and it even has a Nike pace and calorie counter. I love it, I bought a strap for it right away so I can wear it as a watch at the Gym. I really, really love it.




Happy Weekend Everyone!

Belated happy birthday! My great grandmother is from Malaysia but she's Portugese and sambal and curry are common dishes in our house :) I love them too!

Looks like you really had a grand day, making it more memorable by celebrating it with the people you dearly love :D

belated happy birthday! The ipod nano is cute.I do not know that it can be strapped like that and used as a watch.

It's cool to use as watch. It just drains battery faster :(
