I’m officially 28 (ermm… slightly more than a month ago)! Really?! o.O It feels as if I wrote my 27th birthday post just a little while ago!
I took a 2-day self-declared birthday leave and so I had a really good long weekend! Here are some of my birthday highlights:
1. Went for Japanese buffet lunch at Kuishin Bo!
The first time I went to Kuishin Bo was… 3 years ago. We were planning to go to Smoke House initially, but he decided for this restaurant instead at the last minute.
Sashimiiiiii! Definitely the first thing I happily picked onto my plate! :D
Bite-sized cakes – most of them are yummy! I remember when I went to Kuishin Bo with Rani and Irma, we actually took plates (notice I said ‘plates’) of dessert the moment we stepped inside the restaurant. Hahahaha!
Ok, end of food pictures. Was too hungry and couldn’t be bothered to snap so much.
Btw, this post has been delayed for more than a month and my hair is not even like this anymore. I’m back to short bob! :D
2. Super cute birthday gifts!
I swear I turned into an over-excited 5-year-old kiddo the moment I saw “Instant Mini Camera Building Kit”! Look at that hand-drawn tag and the tako on the box ^^
The end product! SO CUTE!!! :D
This custom LEGO kit was ordered from chrismcveigh.com. According to the mister, he used to create LEGO building guides for custom objects and he started to actually prepare the kits and sell them afterwards. He’s not associated with LEGO in any way, though.
He does have some really cute creations up for sale. Do check out his website! :)
Some stickers were actually included to be pasted on the “polaroid” photo “paper” (see the Marilyn Monroe one in the above picture), however he wanted to put our picture on it instead (that’s the whole purpose of him buying this set actually!), so there you go!
The other cute gift was from Juju! Look at this fluffy sheep:
Hahahaha another Nici to be added to the family!
3. Went to see the “100 Doraemon Secret Gadgets Expo” in Johor Bahru!
This deserves a separate post! Coming soon :D
4. First time receiving a birthday gift from a client
I was truly surprised when the client came into the office for a meeting (with me) and she suddenly handed me this!
So sweet of her!! :)
5. Surprise from the circus penguins!
It actually happened 1 day before as I would be on leave on the day itself.
I was just sitting at my desk, killing the keyboard away (my colleagues said that at the pace and force I’m typing, my keyboard would have been dead sooner or later) doing work, all of them suddenly barged in through the back door (my desk was near the back door) singing Happy Birthday, bringing Corica apple strudel!
Apparently Ms. Peanut had just came back to Singapore (she was away for honeymoon in Perth) and she brought this back!! :D
My last encounter with Corica was when I went to Perth 2 years ago, so this was a really pleasant surprise!! =9
6. FINALLY had my 2 years worth of birthday dinner
A lot of Indonesians have this habit of treating their loved ones for a birthday meal (instead of the other way around here in Singapore). My cousins and I adhere to this tradition as well. I did not actually treat them for a birthday meal last year coz I spent my birthday itself with the mister and I got so busy afterwards that the year has gone by to 2014 hahahaha!
So I didn’t want to miss it out again this year and we finally had it just last Friday at Akashi Restaurant in Paragon! Used to patronize this outlet quite a few times before and the food did not disappoint :D
And they gave me…
S$150 Courts gift card!
I was quite puzzled initially… “Why would they give me Courts gift card?” (coz normally we’ll give each other shopping vouchers, e.g. CapitaMalls, Takashimaya, etc. if the gift was to be vouchers).
Then I suddenly thought, “Hmm… Maybe the mister has something to do with this.”
And yes, I was right. Hahaha! So apparently one of them asked him on what have I been wanting to buy lately and he mentioned air fryer, bread maker, musical tickets (Cats, Beauty and the Beast). Hahahahaha!! No wonder they gave me Courts gift card. But I like it though, not complaining! :D
Okay, so that’s some snippets of me turning 28! 2 more years before I hit the big 3! o.O
Oh my… time does fly too fast sometimes…
