Oh happy day!

As promised, here is a post about the things I did on my birthday, including a few of the gifts I received. And in this post are some details about me and my life. I hope I don't bore you!

Thursday, March 18, I was at work for nine hours, looking forward to spending a birthday eve dinner with Jay. We ate at this very cozy place called Terrace at the 5th:

He got me this pre-birthday gift, a Samsung Omnia (which is now full of appointments), last week to replace my lost phone:

Friday, March 19 (my b-day), I was already in the office at 6:20 in the morning. I have to be on the field to visit some suburban property sites. Left at 7:00 am, got back in the office at 6:30 pm. Just so you wouldn't wonder, I am with the Corporate Marketing department of a real estate firm. I wish to buy a property from one of our firm's developments as an investment in the near future. Here are some shots that I believe I am allowed to share (sorry, no photos of my planned outfit!):

That night, though super tired, I enjoyed a nice dinner with my family at this Greek place called Cyma. Oops, didn't get to take photos with family. But my little sis captured this tired-but-happy pic of me:

My yummy lemon cake that was gone in the blink of my eye:

A cute homemade card from my funny little sister:

The cover

The inside: that pop-up monkey is hanging on a nylon line. She was like "get it?" haha! I think she was trying to tell me that this would be the last homemade card I'm gonna get, next will be e-cards! Aw, I love her homemade cards...

A Starbucks tumbler that I so need when I'm on the go. It's hard holding on to that Starbucks cup and avoiding spills when I'm moving, so I'll just have my barista put my coffee here. And a teeny silk shorts (so shiny!):

My birthday celebration wasn't at all fancy, but I really enjoyed it and I am so thankful for the people who made it possible. I would also like to thank you my lovely readers for sharing this day with me and for all the greetings! You all are the sweetest! Here's to more happy years!

(Almost all photos were taken using my new Omnia phone)

  11. Oh my golly!! Your birthday looks like it was awesome! I'm so sorry I'm late sending birthday love -- just consider it spread out over the whole weekend. And those homes? Gorgeous! You must like your job, yes? (Minus those early wake up times, of course.) And how I'd love to hear some stories -- my friend appraises homes and he once walked into one in June to discover a Christmas tree wrapped in plastic wrap...with the presents underneath! The owners were apparently too lazy to put it up and take it down every year.

  17. Lisa Loeb? haha. I do wear thick-rimmed glasses though!

    Yes Brandi, though super tiring at times, I do love my job! I've actually been with the company for only a month. Just last month I was with the Corporate Communications dept. of a gaming firm. Smart career move I think. Wish me luck!

    Thanks everyone for all the sweet words!
