22 Years Ago...

  • Howard Stern's Pay-Per-Vew 'Negligee and Underpants' show was aired
  • Benazir Bhutto became the first female to lead an Islamic nation
  • That 'Don't Worry, Be Happy' song made depressed people want to jump off something really tall
That's right folks, it's my birthday! *cue confetti and fireworks*

As per my custom, I've had a couple of celebrations, and will have one tonight with my family, followed by dins with the girls in Penang! Yesterday was my day with LB and I had a totally awesome time.. especially at night (NOT THAT WAY, PERVS)! We spent the whole day just chilling out (yes, I'm very boring), and at night we headed to Desa Parkcity for dinner and a romantic stroll through the park a.k.a major camwhoring opportunities, as you will see in a bit!

Here is further proof that May Lee and Adam have never even heard of the term 'camera shy'!

Okay let's go in chronological order:

First, we went for dinner at La Casa, an Italian place in Desa Parkcity's Waterfront, their community mall. We sat in the smoking area, facing the park, because it was breezy and cool plus the view was really quite nice!

The view of the restaurant's interior from where we were seated

Posing while waiting for the food.We were absolutely starving, and taking pics reduces the hunger pangs (for camwhores only, non-camwhores may not experience this)!

After what felt like an eternity (in reality it was maybe about 15 minutes), the food arrived! We did not fall on them like a pack of starving wolves *lies blatantly* 
Carbonara for LB (RM 19 I think) because he never really eats any other sort of pasta.

Him being such a carbonara aficionado, he really knows his stuff. So when he said that this one is fabulous, I really had to steal some! And damn straight, it's fabulous! The sauce is a delightful blend of cream and hints of mushroom, and the important thing is that it never becomes jelak! It just stays delicious until that last strand of fettucine. Throw in turkey ham and mushrooms, and you have a (slightly petite) winner! Yes folks, like so many other good things, this one comes in a slightly undersized package. Perfect if you're not a big eater, too damn small if you're starving and ready to eat the table!

*SLURRRPP* La Casa, you have one happy diner here

And here's mine!
Beef lasagna (RM 21), is of a perfectly normal size, and is pretty good as well! Not as 'WHOA, DAMN NICE!!!' as the carbonara, but delicious albeit in an ordinary manner.

Yummm cheesy tomato-ey beef-y goodness =D

The 'Just Had Good Food' smiles.

Stomachs satisfied, the gorgeous park (and more picture-taking opportunities) beckoned tentalisingly.

 Pretty, no? A little slice of God-created, man-designed heaven. Mmm.

Okay, enough about nature.
What about the birthday girl, right??
No worries, the birthday girl will never suffer from under-exposure.
Neither would the birthday girl's boyfriend! Teehee.

By and by, we encountered an empty bench (the rest were occupied, mostly by couples. Yup. You know, I know, we ALL know why they're there hogging benches)

May Lee and Adam also occupied a bench!
 Recording our activities. Teehee. We're very boring.

 *snuggleee* KA-CHIAK! BTW, I look crap in all the photos because I'm not wearing enough makeuppp *sobs*

Cheh, shouldn't it be the BIRTHDAY GIRL getting a kiss?

Nevermind, you're forgiven because when we got home, I was surprised with

I just went upstairs for a minute, and then I came down to see my beloved lighting up candles. <3

I made my wish,
 Yes, damn ugleh. Oh well.

and blew the candles out! Then we rearranged the candles to make
a heart!

I could wax rhapsodic about how our love will illuminate the darkness, but I don't have to. I won't bore you with long descriptions of my boyfriend's awesomeness, suffice it to say that HE IS THE AWESOME.

And when I thought the surprises were over, I got 

"Ooooo.. pirate's chest ar? Mana wrapping paper?"
"Just open it"
"Yes, boss"

*Angel chorus*


From left to right: Bag, Eiffel Tower, kissing couple, doggy, 'made with love' tag, butterfly, mini cooper, and heart.

Each of them have a significance! The pink charms (bag, dog, car) are things I want and he owes me (woohoo!), the Eiffel Tower is a reference to my obsession with all things French, the kissing couple is a reference to my neighbour (if you believed me, I will laugh at you), made with love tag is, well, a reference to how the bracelet was made with love *cue the AWWWs*, butterfly is a secret.

Okay, fine, I'll tell you.

I'm scared of butterflies. =(

Actually, I'm scared of anything that flies. DON'T LAUGH AT ME, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY.

Oh, and the website he got the charm bracelet from can be found HERE.

I'm going to enjoy being 22, you have yourselves a good day too okay! =)
