Exactly one year ago I was in Bangkok. Today I am in Bangkok again :)
This is one of my favourite cities and I can’t be any happier to celebrate my birthday here.
At first I thought I was only tagging along Gareth on his company retreat in Krabi. However, while having a casual chat with one of his colleagues, she innocently asked me about our trip to Bangkok.
I was like,”Eh no lah. Where got…we are heading home”. She looked confused.
Anyway, I told G about our conversation and then he confessed. He forgot to inform his colleagues not to mention BKK as he was too caught up with work lol.

But it’s okay, I am really happy :) I love you so much babyboobydoo. I love you more than myself.

To be honest, I am really excited about getting older. Yes I may not have the effortlessly flawless skin I had when I was a teenager anymore but I am continuously acquiring other things like empathy, humility,peace of mind and most importantly, love.
I am learning to love myself so I can effectively love my friends and family back. Love is not just sharing or gifting of wealth/material, but sharing good, caring, kind, genuinely positive energies in form of words and thoughts and and actions. And sharing of time too, something I seriously need to improve on (sorry mum).
I have learnt to let go of negative influences (people, gossips, complaints, etc) whenever possible and wow, it is absolutely therapeutic.
I am so glad at this point in life I have finally discovered this way of living. I wish I had discovered this earlier so I would have more practice but hey, better late than never. It’s never too late to accept something good in your life anyway.
# – Checked in to our beautiful room. Unrelated…just want you to see the bed. Love it!
Thanks for all the nice wishes and I hope you are as excited about growing up as I am too :D
