Turning 32 ain't so bad after all....

So, I was dreading turning 32 this year. I love and hate my birthday coz I will get presents and I have to age. It's a double idiosyncrasies, really! I promise myself after this year I will not reveal my age anymore and I shall be forever 25.

Friday (17th August 2012)
Referring back to my previous post here, I got the surprise of my life. I am usually not easily surprised, I don't know why. Intuition maybe ? But I was tired and my bro (yes, she's a girl Ms TEL) planned something mischievious. Just read the post and you'll know what went down. Here are the gifts from my lovely colleagues.

From Ms WC, wrapped in my favourite coffee packaging from Malacca. The Lao Qian White Coffee plastic is thrown away due to many reasons.

From Ms CT. My boss and according to her she chose this coz it says "Kum Cho" on Rilakkuma's body. Kum Cho sounds like cumshot to me and it's typical of me to think of this, so yeah it's so me.

From Mr FO. The earliest birthday gift I received this year. I did not open it til my actual day (saja...) And it is now in Mr Hubs car. He had no choice coz he threw away the previous tissue box holder I got him. 

Saturday (18th August 2012)
I slept the day away knowing that it's gonna be a long weekend. Woke up late afternoon had some food and my lovely Lao Qian White Coffee. Head over to the only hair salon I go to D'Hair in Sri Sentosa to have a trim and re-color my hair. I need to look good for my birthday ok?

If I remember correctly, I did yumchar with Mr Hubs, Ms TEL (my bro) and Mr LSY at Chilla Cup, Subang Avenue. My favourite hangout spot. There can't be a weekend without going there. Love the ambience. And I wished my sister a Happy Birthday at the stroke of midnight coz her birthday is a day before mine.

Sunday (19th August 2012)
Woke up early and head over to CEO, Fahrenheit 88 for K-Lunch. The outing was with Ms ML (my sis..the bday girl), Mr ES (her bf), Mr Hubs, me, Mr ML (my bro..duh) and Mr SI (Lady Gaga's little monster). Got there and start singing our hearts out. I reserve my energy from Friday night coz I know I was too tired on Friday and don't want to lose my voice.

This is a gift from my bro and sister. I call it the controversial keyboard for reasons only a few of us need to know. It was given earlier this week but to make this easier, I shall post this according to events.

 My sis brought along the gift from my bff Ms AY. She's currently in Tawau with her husband Mr JGD and won't be back til September. So she ordered something for me online. It's absolutely fabulous and one of a kind. Love it!

Dinner was spent with my parents and family members at Pantai Seafood Village for both of our birthday. It was a quiet affair with some light chatter and snapping of Instant Photos (my current craze!)

Angpaos from Mom and Grandma. Dad paid for dinner as usual.

The photos of the day. From morning til night time. Cool eh? I kept the good shit (Rilakkuma...expensive shit) for this special occasion.

After dinner, I met up with my best guy friend Mr KB who just got back from Shenzhen last week (i think! coz he's always not around). He asked me what I wanted and I'm never shy from asking. So he got me The Hunger Games trilogy which I will read when I have the time.

Monday (20th August 2012) ---> my actual birth day
When I got home after midnite when it's just 20th, everything starts to go straight to hell. I started vomitting and it's not how I pictured the start of my 32 y.o self as fabulous but instead, I was a vomitting mess. Stomach was bloated and from my point of view looks bigger than my breasts. It's not a good sign. Had to put a lot of ointment to ease the pain. Tried to sleep but couldn't and I got up at 5am and had to drink something to ease the pain. The Milo is expired (great! just great!) and thank God for a big packet of cocoa drink from my bff which she brought back from Tawau from her last visit back home. It helps a little and everything came out again. Vomitus beyond controllus (my own version of Latin). Had some ORS (thank God from my last gastric attack) and I managed to sleep til morning.

I told myself this, I have to eat my mom's homecooked meehoon soup or I'm gonna die. Went and see doc, got myself some antibiotics and wondered whether I had salmonella. Doc told me no, it's just food poisoning. But to me, food poisoning equals "lao sai" (hokkien for diarrhea). He told me there are plenty of symptoms to food poisoning and mine happens to be "just" vomitting. 

So I went home and mom cooked me meehoon despite she herself had a few diarrhea attacks. I am such a lousy daughter. Selfish to the max. And lo and behold, I am right! After eating her meehoon and meds I slept on the couch at my parent's place til 9pm. Woke up and ate somemore meehoon and meds and I felt much better. No more vomitting. My mom's meehoon is a miracle!

Gift from Mr Hubs which I got it before I start vomitting. Didn't have the strength to molest it til the very next next day. Still haven't properly molest it coz my desk is a mess and I have not clear it up and this requires a plug point. Now I have more space for my photos and drama series. Yay! I love this gift okay? If you're reading this, just a bit drama earlier on coz I need to find a plug point for this.

Tuesday (21st August 2012) ----> no longer my birthday
Woke up at a pretty reasonable time coz I've wasted my previous day sick and lying around like a zombie. Do some house cleaning and laundry (no more underwear to wear). Had a light meal at Departure Lounge with Mr Hubs and later Mr KB joined us. 

Contemplating whether to go to KL Convention Centre, Popular's Book Fest or not to meet my favourite author on Childhood Stories Mr Boey. It started to rain and I'm still thinking..... thinking.... will I be able to talk to him ? Or will I be a social pariah when I am unwell? After much thinking, fuck it I'm going coz the coming Saturday I'll be busy with the joint birthday party with Ms JL (yeah...the party goes on... coz we're both fabulous and special!)

Got my book signed. Hell yeah!
Got a photo taken with him. If you want to know more about him and his works, visit his website here. He's kick ass and friendly. He's still around for more book signings if you wanna catch him. Obviously I didn't tell him that this is also part of my birthday thingy. So, his signing my book is my gift from him.

The day has not end. After a light dinner coz I do not want to vomit anymore, I ate very little. To me as long as the food stays in, it's good. Met up with my bro again with Mr LSY, Mr KB and Mr Hubs. She presents my final gift to wrapped up this crazy weekend from my crazy bunch of friends who are now holiday-ing in Boracay Islands.

The casing is an extra gift from my bro (Ms TEL) and the mini Diana F is from Ms JL, Ms CAV, Mr KB, Mr LSY and Ms FN. My camera collection is now complete. I just need to buy some films and learn how to use this baby and I'm good to go.

This year's birthday kick ass! Who said that turning old means no more presents? I do have loads of great friends and family in my life. And I love every single one of you. Thank you for being part of my life and now I feel like vomitting again. I've been hanging on to blog about this and I really have to go!

Love you long time ~~
