hey it’s my birthday!

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.

# – Beautiful clouds while on the way to BKK.

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

# – G and I mucking about before checking into our favourite hotel, Shanghai Mansion.

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

  2. Hi!Happy belated birthday, ST still has romance in him. It feels like it was not that long ago when I read your last birthday post. I noticed that ST always look neatly dressed in photos, definitely doesn’t dress like a slob :) I am guessing you’ve got a role to play in his dress sense, where do you/him find clothes his size in Malaysia? My partner is of European descent & is as tall & broad as ST, I’ve looked around but I can’t seem to find casual clothes in his size here, even good fitting underwear is hard to come by here. Hope to hear from you!

    1. heh he buys a lot of t-shirts online…it’s almost impossible for him to find anything that fits in Malaysia to be honest. for shirts, try Nautica (wonderful fabric and good cut/fit). as for underwear try M&S or Debenhams. shoes/slippers…rockport. good luck!
