It was my birthday yesterday and I did have a great time just doing nothing during the day but stitching. No new stash this time, coz I think I've stashed enough to either keep me busy or lasts till end of the year. Unless of course I'm hardworking enough to start some of them now and put in at least 3 or 4 hours of stitching everyday. But as you know by now, I'm not that type of person to rotate between different projects (unless its pretty important piece) and do it every day. I'm also afraid that by rotating, some of the pieces might end up being UFOs! Plus I'm the type of person that want to see things get done from A to Z. Hubby (and my mum) says I'm a bit "got head no tail" type of person. So I have to prove them wrong!
The ladies from M'sia, China and the Phillipines...
It was a bit of a rush by the time it hits evening. Thank goodness we've opted for steamboat instead of bbq as it got a little too windy in the evening to eat out on our balcony. Invited some friends over for steamboat dinner, which happens to be an all girl party (except for hubby)! I think I prefer a small dinner party with friends instead of a big bash thingy. Its soo much more intimate, we can still chat and laugh rather than going around, making sure everything's in place/order/entertained and not being able to sit down for a good chitter-chat with friends.
As girls, we'll talk about anything and everything. So yesterday I'm quite surprised that hubby is able to carry a conversation about who's the most good looking actor; Brad Pitt or Keanu Reeves. Of course Brad Pitt won, despite my objection. I mean how to object when you have 4 against 1 (hubby included) whom debated and voted for Brad Pitt?! Thanks hubby for being such a sport!
The cake with the "magical" touch to feel young again!
Then came the surprise cake. Surprise coz the cake hubby got me says "For your 18th birthday"! hehehehehe... Ok, Ok I'll admit, I don't want to face the fact that I'm already 28. I mean, in general, women will never admit what's their "real" age when asked right? What vain and always young at heart ladies would admit it? Then the other surprise was the girls got me "magic" candles. I kept on blowing them but they kept on re-lighting by themselves!! It was really funny!
So I wan to say a BIG THANK YOU to hubby for making it great day for me with such a simple touch on the cake, to the girls that came to wine and dine with us and to my family and friends for the sms and email wishes that I didn't expect. Its soo sweet of you all to remember. Thank you soo much for reminding me that you care!
