Another trip around the sun

I celebrated my birthday earlier this week.  I was a little busy with work so I wasn’t able to post this entry on my actual birthday like I did last year.

This year’s celebration was very simple.  I only had one class the whole day, which made me feel like the university gave me a present. When I got to the office I found a rose on my desk from Amie, along with a note 😀

Thanks Aminess~

For lunch, the family and I went to our favorite 88-Resort for some Korean food.  This is where Ezra and I celebrated our birthdays last year too.  It’s becoming a tradition I think.

After lunch, I returned to my office and found this note on my door

Thanks Davies! 😀

The rest of the afternoon was pretty uneventful – I spent most of it checking quizzes and lab reports at my desk.  At around 4pm, some of my officemates and I went to IRRI to have merienda together.

When I got home that evening, I found one of my favorite cakes waiting for me at home – Sans Rival 😀

My parents asked me what cake I wanted for my birthday this year and I specifically requested this.  I’m not much of a cake person, but I have a soft spot for Goldilocks’ Sans Rival.

Ckloy and I weren’t able to meet up during my birthday because we both had to work, but he came over this weekend to see me.  He surprised me with another cake when he arrived.

Yummy tiramisu from Mary Grace 😀  Thanks baby~

Ezra and I were at Festival Mall yesterday and she wanted to get me *another* cake since she hadn’t bought me a present yet, but unfortunately the one she wanted wasn’t available. She wanted the same cake she had for her birthday – the Apple or Strawberry Inspiration from Tous Les Jours.

Instead, she ended up buying me a bag from the department store, which I’m very happy about 😀

My parents have also been asking what I want for my birthday, and I’m still in the process of convincing them (and Ckloy) to chip in and buy me a new camera lens 🙂  So far their responses have been positive. Yay~
