My birthday story!

It was my birthday on the 18th May and I never expect my birthday this year would be full of surprises. May be I never expect anything, I actually thought no one would celebrate with me, that's why in these two weeks, surprises much. hehe 

Really feel thankful to everyone who celebrated with me and greeted me, and thank you for all the treats and gifts. Opening gift is always exciting, even it's just a little gift. Wohooo!

My family surprised me with a cake on a Mother's day which is two weeks earlier from my birthday. Super advance because my dad thought I would be busy the weeks after. #happyfamily

I went dinner with my girls last week and suddenly a cake was served by the waiter when I thought we were about to go. We were so full that night and I was thinking "Finally I finished the foods!" Then Yin said she wanted to have a cake before leaving, yea sure why not. 

I was very blur because when I was about to leave Yin said "不是!" I wasn't sure what she meant, thinking the cake is not for us but the waiter was blocking my way. Was a confusing surprise but it was great.

Moi happy face.

On my birthday eve, my bestie Yee Lan brought me and Yuet Ling for spa and facial at Herbaline
The place is very nice, very comfortable, very posh. the price of facial is OK too. 
The basic facial costs around RM89. I had a discount of RM25 because it's my birthday and I'm 25 years old. So if you are 50 years old, you get a RM50 discount.

However, the facial isn't suitable for me. I had breakouts after that :((

Foot spa with water and....salt. haha Then a fish spa after that but I'm too coward to put my feet in. 
Looking at the fishes sucking your leg is kinda....gali.

Yee Lan asked me to overnight at her place, I thought she just wanted to keep me accompany because I was very upset about something. I didn't want at first but in the end I still give face went. LOL

While chatting with King about exciting stuffs (talking business), I silent my phone because I respect King, I have to concentrate hahahah Didn't realize it was already 12am and with messages coming in, the cha boh suddenly sang birthday song. #toosweet It's a kitty Popcorn ice cream cake!

Then lunch time with another group of friends at Excapade. This is coool! This Yin got so much idea.

Chyi's (middle) birthday is around the corner too. Thanks Johnny boss for the treat.

You see how spoilt am I to have these awesome people around me. And that night my enemy, Dick brought me to Empire Pantai for buffet with Devin and Amy.
So pretty

I like all the foods there except for the desserts. Doesn't really suit my taste. I prefer Zest. 

Birthday girl wu sui bo (pretty not)? ^^ My necklace si beh chio by the way. 

And again, we were VERY full. I was about to leave and say Bye to them then they were like "Where are you going? You got something to do? I thought we are going to our room to drink something." They had a room by the way. 

Before that, it was because Empire Pantai doesn't serve water. So they were thirsty. 

Then suddenly another cake. I never expect that because I was in the room for quite a long time. Thank you #ialmostcried haha

Before going for the dinner, Dick asked me to open the present first. When I saw a BIG brown box without knowing what it is inside, I didn't say thank you first but "Confirm very expensive lo!!" Because I warned told him not to give me expensive stuffs. 

I was thinking may be it's a machine.

It's a make up box with my logo printed! My jaw dropped!

I'm using a very normal hand bag to put my cosmetic when I do my job. Make up box is just too heavy for me. I prefer making my life easy, it's ok if people say I don't look professional because....It's the skill that speaks

May be Dick 看不过眼。

It's heavy as a whole. But what's good about it is, it has 3 sections and you can reassemble it. Like I can just bring the top section, or I can just use the below section so it's lighter! It's light also because it's by fabric not the metal kind.

I just received this yesterday. All the way from UK from Dick. 

I'm so spoilt. Thanks everyone.
I love you *smoooooch*

A lil story about my mom and I

Opps a bit blur

Hello darlings! I'm a bad daughter, I don't go back to my hometown often, average once a month, at most twice a month. I always feel like I can't finish my works and I have to stay back and do my things over the weekend. I always try to go home on festivals and my family's birthday. And so, I went back hometown for Mother's day :)

Like usual, the whole family including my grandma, aunties and uncles would have a big family gathering on a mother's day. And there's something that the family would always mention and remember, that is the serious car accident that I had in 2007 on a Mother's day. In 2012, my car was broken and my things got stolen on a mother's day too. Pretty unlucky. But I didn't really avoid anything on this Mother's day.

Anyway, here's a lil story about my mom and I. I was kinda rebellious during the teen and that's the period when I got very negative and I didn't have a good relationship with my mom. I didn't hate her or dislike her, nor shout at her (I never dare to), but just we weren't very close. My mind was rebellious but physically I'm a good girl. 

My mom didn't allow me to do a lot of things, like learning musics, to study abroad or even have a choice to choose my future, didn't allow me to travel with cousins, etc. I listened to her and respected her, and so mentally I became bad. I was very negative. I blamed my brother for making my mom so unfair to me (although there's nothing to do with him) because of his existence. I wanted reasons on why she didn't allow me to do things, but there was always no reason given.

After that, my dad kinda settled the issues, and made everything better.

My mom and I got closer when I studied uni. I always went home and storied her my uni life. It was great and there was so much to share about with my mom. Even until today, when I go home, I tell what I did in the city, and how's work life, how's love life. And my mom would share her stories too.

It's really amazing how things change sometimes. Although my little heart got broken by my mom before, it's so amazing that we can chat a lot today and I always feel comfortable to chat with my mom about my problems, "GIRLS TALK"

3 things that my mom taught me:

1. Always say nice things about people. 多说好话。She meant like don't say how naughty is that kid running around the restaurant, how ugly is that person, etc. For me, it's ok to complain if things happen to you, but don't criticize or discriminate people especially when they do nothing to you.

She taught me not to encourage people to get divorce no matter how bad is people's relationship. It's people's matter and it would be better to say positive things than negative.

2.  It's more important to have a man who treats you well than having a rich man. For example, my dad. ^^

3. 退一步,海阔天空。Calm down and don't say too much to avoid arguments. My mom is so good at this and trust me, I never seen my parents fight this 25 years. Sometimes my dad would say something which if I'm his wife, I would say "I dare you to say one more time!" but my mom would always keep quiet when necessary. In a way, my mom is kinda always give way to make things better. 

My mom can really speak in a sweet tone like a girl sometimes which I find it disgusting at times. She can sound so manja =.=" tell me how can my dad's heart don't melt!? lol

I really feel thankful to my mom for everything. I'm glad to have a mom who likes to make herself pretty and that's what that have made the Eahui today. I always see my mom does her nail polish, makeup, dress up and shopping (opps). I learnt half of my mom's pattern. She taught me to use the blue Maybelline mascara when I was in high school haha 

I wish I can save enough money asap to bring my mom to travel Japan, that's her dream :)

till next time, smoooch!
