I planned to celebrate my 30th birthday the simplest way I can. We didnt invite other people to join us (except for my brother but they were not available due to work), I was only with my family, had lunch, did a little shopping and went home. I bought a lunch voucher with $10 discount for a buffet at http://www.pariss.com.sg/ from Groupon. It was satisfying. My favorite from their spread were the steamed fish and chili crab. They were really sumptuous!
I didn't plan so much for my birth day this year because it just reminds me of my mother. She was still with us when I had a celebration last year, little did I know that it was the last time I'm celebrating my birthday with her. It's really, really sad. No amount of words can describe how I feel about it but I thank the Lord for always being there filling my heart and mind - for comforting me. There are still a lot of things to be happy and thankful for.

And finally our photos as a family. I collected in a plate few slices of cake from the dessert counter, place candles on them and sang the happy birthday song. My daughter was looking forward to the candle blowing part, actually. Ha-ha. I was already okay with that - I can go home and enjoy the rest of my birthday at home.
But my husband keeps asking me what's next on our itenirary on this special day and I keep answering, "We're going home." He insisted that we drop by a store first so he can give me his gift to me. I had a feeling. We went inside the store and viola, a Louis Viuttion purse for the birthday girl. Ha ha!
|Thank you, Dad!|

At home, my daughter played with the huge LV paper bag. The huge LV bag has another story. Ill blog about LV's great customer service which you just deserve as the bag's price is not a joke.

Husband and I filed a 2-day leave of absences so we can have a rest from work - it is my birthday anyway. We slept late watching movies and bonded as much as we could. I am happy.
Next year would be another celebration. Not sure how it would be but I know the Lord has a lot more instore for us.
