Twenty Seven.

Memorably sweet. That pretty much summarizes my birthday celebration this year and that has got to do a lot with the people I mentioned in my blog entry earlier. You see we hang out with each other a lot.

That is why, when they told me to meet at Delicious, Bangsar after work for dinner, I had no expectation that it was going to be extra special. I really thought it was just going to be okay-happy-birthday-this-is-your-birthday-dinner-let's-om-nom-nom because I knew we were there for my birthday dinner, but little did I know that they've taken some time out of their busy time to arrange something sweet for me :) :)

The moment I stepped into the place, my jaw dropped open when I saw this just behind my chair.

It might not be anything to you, but it means everything to me because I know how busy these people are! Just arranging balloons for me could have allowed them to send 2 emails to 2 different people!

I was dizzy with happiness, I didn't even realize the gifts that were laid there on the plate for me ; I actually thought it was the food menu! LOL.

Guess what did I get for my birthday from them?

That's right! A special birthday comic strip done by the ex-intern Joel and a beautiful gold leaf necklace from all of them! Thank you guys, I love them so much! *tears*

And then, it was time to order the food. There were so many delicious meals to choose from in the menu, but the best meal yet to me has got to be.. this meal!

I call it the ultimate birthday meal because the birthday girl got to taste all the different meals combined on the table in one plate! YUMS! :D

Heck, the birthday girl didn't only get to taste all 6 different types of food, she also got to blow candles on 2 birthday cakes! *grins widely*

After that, we spent hours and hours just talking, bitching, and talking, and then bitching again about the world! Oh and of course, a whole lot of camwhoring too after the dinner! :P

The birthday girl didn't miss the chance to be.. uh, "under the balloons" herself! :P I was wearing a maxi dress in fuschia by ThePopLook, bangles in turquoise by Belle and beaded necklace in turquoise by an unknown brand.

It was indeed a beautiful night with the beautiful people that I'd treasure forever. :) Here's to the beautiful friendship from now till years to come! I LOVE YOU GUYS! <3

Pangkor Trip With The Lovelies!

Wow, I am finally back to update this woefully abandoned blog and am actually writing again for real! *pats self on the back* Things have been hectic for me lately. I've got so much to tell all of you, and I promise I'll try to find time to update them one of these days!

I wanted to update about my birthday celebration recently but thought of sharing something even more significant in my life before I go to that. I've been too busy minding my daily life I even forgot to introduce to you some of the people that do matter in my life lately. These are the people I see at office everyday, and the ones that know me inside and out (well, almost!), the ones I'd like to call my good friends.

Firstly, there's Anne, Miss Sunshine. 

Everything about her screams I-AM-MISS-SUNSHINE. She's so bubbly and full of life, I've even prepared an obituary speech for her for some strange reason I don't know. I imagine myself saying, "The Anne that I knew was a cheerful girl. She has the kindest heart, and a laugh that could scare even the scariest ghost away" Okay the last part was a bit exaggerated but really, she's so selfless, she would even sacrifice the bak kut teh offers for lunch everyday just so she could have lunch with her Muslim friends :)

And then, there's Sue, Miss Diva. 

The self-proclaimed diva whose life I would like to trade with. She's so easy going and doesn't give a hoot about what's going on in the world mainly because she has a world of her own and because most of her time is literally spent travelling every part of the world! I mean, seriously. As soon as she reached Malaysia from Chiang Mai, she was already talking about flying off to Korea the next month. And then again to Scotland the month after! Really woman? Really?

And then of course, there's Farah, Miss Grammar Nazi.

The meanest of us all (well, she appears mean to those who don't know her, at least) and the one that would pick up even the slightest grammar mistake in your sentence! I mean, really, I get nervous as I am typing this, worrying her head would pop up any minute from her monitor now when she reads this and go, "Thara, ayat ni tak sedap. TUKAR," LOL. Interns are usually afraid of her, but once you get to know her, you'd see that she's not as mean as she potrays herself to be. :)

Of course, these are just some of the many good friends that I have over in my workplace, namely Rina, Victor, Joel, and Junee, but if I were to write about all of them, then I will never get to share about my experience to Pangkor with these 3 clowns, no? :P

So as the title reads, I went to Pangkor with these 3 clowns and our partners recently.

It was actually the first time I ever went outside the state without Aydein, so it could be considered a daytime honeymoon for me and my husband on that day. Hooba-hooba! :P But then again, it didn't feel right to spend a night without the little monster with us, so Aien and I decided to make it a day-trip while the rest spent the night at a chalet nearby.

Although it was a short trip, it was definitely worth it. We had so much fun, quality time -- all of us! :) Alright enough talking already, let the pictures do the talking!

Needless to say, it was one memorable day out with my lovelies. Goodbye, Pangkor. Till we meet again!

Marvel’s The Avengers

One 'supernatural power' show that I never failed to catch (besides Power Rangers & Ultraman) when I was a kid has got to be.. Charmed!

I love how the 4 witch-sisters fight the demons off with their superpowers and despite the butt kicking, face punching and neck crunching, ironically, not even a hair out of place! Most importantly, no need for those fugly underwear-on-the-outside costume nonsense; these chicks can kick-ass in spaghetti strap and jeans! Now that's what I call kicking-ass-in-style! :D

And then, when I grew slightly older I was introduced to Marvel superheroes and I've followed (although not very closely) all their series since! Comic superheroes like "Iron Man", "The Incredible Hulk", "Thor" and "Captain America" started to grow more and more on me. So much so, I began to wish that I could be one of the 'superheroes' and join their Avengers Team to help save the world!

But then again.. which superhero would I be and what would be the powers I would like to have with me if I were one of them? Hmm.

Oh wait, I know! I could be the OHSEMWOMAN and I could save the world with my "ohsem" superpowers that are the combination of the Charmed sisters powers ; freezing people/objects, having premonition and telekinetic powers

With powers such as those, I would leave no room for crime because naturally, I would get the early premonition if something bad's going to happen, zoom to the place, freeze the bad-ass, and with my ohsem telekinetic powers, shove them away and beat them up to death! Tsk tsk. Too easy because #imohsemthatway. *brushes dust off shoulder* :P
