My Birthday Celebration

It’s my birthday!!!

Sometimes I do think that birthdays are so overrated.

I prefer small celebrations.

A nice dinner with my loved one and friends

I miss celebrating my birthday with my family, especially my twin.

I hate the fact that I’m turning old.

Last year, I celebrated my birthday in a strip club. It was crazy and fun, I made out with a striper and I hated it. I’m pretty sure I’m 100% straight. After the wild celebration last year, I’ve decided this year I should do it in a normal way. A nice dinner with all my beloved friends. In fact, I love it…

Jo planned everything, from choosing a restaurant, inviting all my friends and ordering my birthday cake. A big thank you to him, he made me felt so special.

Please allow me to replace all the boring words with pictures.

We had my birthday dinner at San Chez, a tapas bistro. It was my first time trying tapas and I love the concept of small dishes.

“Bobo company of 8, your table is ready.”

Yenni and I. Thanks for celebrating my birthday with me although you have tons of works waiting for you.

My loved one and my “aiya” daughter.

Big kiss for someone who organized the whole thing for me *mucks*

In love with this picture of me.

Red Sangria

Wine, citrus juices, and a touch of brandy.

Bread and olive oil (I love this the most)

Patatas Bravas

Fried potatoes with alioli and spicy tomato sauce

Cerdo Asado

Braised pork, idiazabol bomba rice, Spanish fried egg, roasted red pepper marmalade

Calamaritos Fritos

Flash fried squids, Serrano ham, pork belly, caramelized onions, orange zest, garlic, squid ink alioli

Paella Valenciana

Alioli saffron rice, chicken tenderloins, shrimp, chorizo sausage, mussels, crawfish, tomato, pimientos, peas

I love the interior of the restaurant, very colorful.

After dinner, we went straight back to my Jon’s place to blow off the candles and eat my long awaited cake.

In love with Water Street’s Tiramisu cake, yum yum..

I sat infront of my cake for 10 minutes before the clock hit 12am. I just couldn’t wait to eat it, I have been wanting to eat this cake for more than 3 months.

1 minute before my birthday, my friends started to sing Happy Birthday. They sang it 3 times in a row just to make sure it was my birthday already, how sweet!

Jo and I

While I was making my birthday wish, Jo kissed my head and whispered “Happy Birthday, baby”.

I spent 5 minutes making my birthday wish. HEY, I couldn’t decide on which wish I should make.

JO: Wei, why izzit so long?

Bo: I cant make up my mind!

Jo: Why didn’t you rehearse last night?

Bo: Oooo I forgot, shit!

continued deciding on what to wish for.

Finally, blew the candle and hope that my wishes will come true.

Cut the cake…

and took a group picture.

Thank you all for coming and making my birthday memorable.

My birthday surprise from my beloved friends.

I always wanted a pink Balenciaga purse.

Thank you Yenni, Jon and Chi Weng for helping my bag reunite with her baby girl.

Thank you Bega, Bff Zoe, Cheryl, Amin, Carmen, Ken, Jeong, Lynn, Yenn and Yihwen for this lovely card.

    Baby Mich- First of all do you have MSN, I want to add you into my list so that we can talk more =D I cant handle whte bag too, the first time i used my Jumbo, it got red color stains all over the bag, it was because of my stupid red sweater =( Lesson learned never wear bright color if u’re planning to use white color bag… So I seldom use Jumbo unless it really matches my outfit hehe I love my Balenciaga giant city, it’s the prefect bag for me cox of the color BLACK. It never pick up any stains.
