As I get older, I thought this year’s birthday will be a quiet one. But I was so wrong.
It started with a nice dinner with A at Favola, Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur.
Thereafter, we attended a surprise birthday party for one of my high school friends, Cross. His girlfriend gathered a group of us and gave us a custom made shirt with the words, “Turning 30 but obviously not the waist line!”.
We got a barrel of beer. It came with an interesting ice box cum beer dispenser.
Cross’ girlfriend also got him an awesome cake. BMW shaped cake!
But it was involved in an accident with Cross’ face…
So after a few beers and flaming Lamborghini, we went wild.
Since it was also Kiang, Elaine and my birthdays, we had to drink extra and hell broke loose thereafter. There were a lot of “brotherly” love. Heh
A week thereafter, my parents, A and I had dinner at Purple Cane restaurant to celebrate my birthday. A and I brought my mum here on Mother’s Day and my Mum suggested that we go there again. It was Dad’s first time there. Dad bought me a book entitled “Renegate – the making of a President” by Richard Wolffe.
After dinner, I bought drinks for my hengtais at Somo. After ordering a bottle a Moet champagne, the manager came to my table and wished me happy birthday. She then gave us some complimentary finger food and also a Flaming Lamborghini. -_-
We also ordered 3 sets of “Tokyo Rush”. Tasted horrible.
The total damage was RM1K plus. Ouch..
2 days later, my ex-Sheffield Unimates gathered to have lunch. It is my 9th year celebrating my birthday with them. Thanks to our permanent organising committee comprising of Big Ass J and Mitciao.
I used to have this practice of keeping all birthday wishes but I got a little bit lazy and scrapped it this year. One thing I notice is that birthday wishes now come vide Facebook and Twitter. I used to get a lot of them vide text messages and IM (msn msg, IRC) messages. This year, such messages were less than 10!
Looks like times have changed.
