Turning 28


As a kid, I hated the birthday song.

There is something awkward about just standing there, watching people smile and sing to you....and do nothing. It didn't get easier,  in fact became even more awkward as I grew older.

This year, my birthday began with our customary family dinner at my favourite restaurant on my birthday eve. The next day was supposed to be another typical 9am to 6pm kinda work day but it was made extraordinary with surprise helium balloons and beautiful flowers from Bubs as I stepped into the office, hilarious pranks by Titts and Mimak, a lovely birthday cake from my colleagues and a romantic dinner by the KL skyline with my husband. Just before I called it a night, I found my husband's birthday card underneath my pillow, and read words that moved this sappy, old-at-heart girl to tears :')

The birthday celebration went on for a couple of days - with my highschool girlfriends and a birthday dinner surprise by the Girlies, with special appearance from an old time Melbourne buddy! My birthday week ended perfectly with a surprise do at home by Titts and Mimak.

The living room was transformed into a dreamy indoor picnic for three, complete with floating white balloons, fresh hydrangeas, roses and the best desserts a girl could ask for. The set up has Mimak's name written all over it...except for the fries and iced milo which sure screams Titts-I-dont-do-healthy-food idea :P

Alhamdulillah for another wonderful birthday. Thank you for all the surprises, the gifts and well wishes, the big and small efforts to put a huge smile on my face. I have plenty on my plate to improve on and as my husband puts it, underneath all the happy wishes and fun celebration is the knocking truth that we are one step closer to return to our Maker....I couldn't agree more.

Here's to a meaningful birthday - a birthday with our loved ones, near or far. A birthday that would boost our spirituality and physical happiness and more importantly, a birthday that would remind us of what truly matters :)

Happy birthday to me!
