day 1373 – sumptuous birthday


spending my birthday in vegas wasn’t my preference because everything i have and need is at home. although i’d rather be spending it in vancity, i can’t deny it was a good experience with scatters of good time. sitting next to my big boss for my birthday dinner is definitely a one of a kind experience. he had a lot of interesting insights and life advice after having a few drinks. time is flying by so quickly; celebrating getting another year older with sushi delicacy, drinks and a surprise dessert

day 1008 – birthday girl

it’s my birthday today and there was no shortage of notifications. thankful to have so many people in my life who blew up my phone with messages, posts and all sorts of notifications. my parents taking me out to a dinner on my special day. heard many good things about fable kitchen and naturally wanted to try it for myself. it’s a relatively small restaurant and their portions are also very small. one of the rare times i was able to finish my own order, which means a normal person wouldn’t feel satiated. it all works in my favour because that leaves enough room for my birthday cake

day 1007 – duo birthday

celebrating our birthdays together with fine dining up at seasons in the park. the patio view looking at downtown coupled with the delicacy made it very enjoyable. then mo pulled a few strings and surprised me with a mousse birthday cake. i must admit he caught me off guard but made the evening that much more incredible. i must stay alert and can never be too comfortable because he’ll throw a curveball at me when i least expect it. the night would have been near perfect if it weren’t for the brief drizzle; but we improvised with a plan b. it was a very special night and i couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate our birthdays

day 642 – day of birth

today the calendar says that i turn another year older, but i don’t feel much different and certainly don’t feel much wiser. celebrating my special day with the family, the people that will put up with me and will always be there for me no matter what happens. time sure flies by quicker as i get older, but i don’t want to grow up just yet because there’s too much waiting for me to explore. i am truly blessed to have every one of you supporters out there being patient with me and not giving up on me. i can only promise i will make my very best effort to work towards my goals to be a better me. it would have been a more enjoyable celebration if i wasn’t sick on the day of my birth

day 640 – birthday with hamberites

had a very fine night dining with my close hamber circle at the keg steakhouse. all i wanted for my little celebration was to hang out and see their faces, i definitely wasn’t expecting to receieve any special gifts but they surprised me with cards, presents and cake. clearly i am truly blessed with the people that surrounds me who filled me with gifts, flowers, cards and alcohol. not allowed to drink for a while, but i am sure that bottle of absolut will come in handy one day

day 277 – vdl birthday present

what a way to celebrate my birthday and cap off my birthday weekend being tier champs. it wasn’t just any other birthday like the past. they announce my special day during the announcements and i received hundreds of birthday wishes, never in my life have i felt so special. team and teamwork is the reason that brought us this championship. hoisting the hammer to pose for the team victory photo, it was a truly amazing feeling that also earned many bragging rights. props to all my teammates playing off each other and sticking to the game plan, couldn’t have done it without any one of you. first playoff tier champ win in my seasons of vdl, winning never felt any better. another year older, another year wiser, looking to make changes, improvements and just make more happen this coming year

day 276 – family birthday dinner

celebrating my birthday with my family a day early due to time conflicts with other obligations that takes precendence. we had a table filled with so much delicious sushi and wings and ebi mayo. the manager even hooked me up with a free birthday mars bar ice cream dessert. the combination of good company, delicious food and freebies is always enjoyable. i can’t ask for more than spending another birthday with my wonderful family
