Time flies. It feels just like yesterday I just had my 24th birthday, with all the loves I received. Why suddenly it's my birthday again? =O
I wanted to blog it in my blog but
- the blogger app is not working? It keeps clashing
- the blogger in mobile web also not very supportive, very hard to write there
- I did not bring my laptop charger and it has no battery hahaha so I can only write it here now
- I will not have the time if have to wait till I am in Jakarta and only blog
I am in Changi airport now, waiting for my flight back to Jakarta, which has been delayed for an hour T-T
Bf has already flew back to KL so I am all alone waiting for my flight. And to kill this time, rather than I walk around and spend more money, might as well I do some blogging.. something that I have been ignoring haha.
This time around I wanna jot down about my 25th birthday!
I was actually in Korea during my birthday lol. I sorta run away (?)
Back in October, me and Nia plan to go Korea and with all the public holidays, 13-24 April seems the best time to go, with only 4 days leave, we get 10 days lol.
And not every year I get to spend my birthday in Korea!
Birthday starts midnight with Nia wishes me, since she is the only one who is right next to me hahaha.
Then the bf calls!
Line video call allows us to do this. So cute. Lol. Virtual celebration lol.
Then Nia gives me this. Apparently bf has given this to Nia so she can give it to me on my birthday 😳 he painstakingly folded every star hahaha inside is every wishes that come from my close friends. He managed to contact Nia and Sandy to collect the wishes 👏🏻
Then what comes as a surprise next is this 짱지 오빠 sent me cake voucher. He asked me to redeem it at any Tous les Jours 😳
And all the wishes start coming in. So I kinda spend the day replying everyone's message lol.
We went to Common Ground that day 🎈
And then Nia got me a pretty bouquet of pink dried flowers 😍 hehehe thank you Seoul sister! (Soul sister upgraded)
I told Nia I wanna wear hanbok on my birthday lol so we did lolol
Will wear no other color yo! 😛
Birthday dinner. Supposedly we wanna find Mazissim but turns out the one in Hongdae has already closed! So we opt for other other restaurant as we're already so hungry.
And on our way back home (we used airbnb so it practically was our home haha), Nia bought chicken and we redeemed the birthday cake and have our mini birthday celebration!
It was much more than I expected though. I never expect to blow any candle that day since I was in Korea but the fact that someone being so thoughtful and managed to send me one is overwhelming.
I also never expect any celebration but Nia made one for me. Grateful ♥️
So here's my first bday cake 🎂
It was 6 days after my birthday only I reach back in Jakarta. I honestly don't really expect anyone to still celebrate my birthday since it has already passed almost a week. However, on the other hand, I know some thoughtful people will still do their best to celebrate my birthday despite it has passed 6 days lol.
And my heart is overwhelmed with all the love. Apparently I love surprises hahaha.
First surprise when I reach back home comes from these ladies ♥️ literally a surprise coz I neverrrrr expected them to suddenly come to my room while I was unpacking my korean stuffs lolol. And I had already wore my pajama hahahaha.
They apparently teamed up with my brother, asking him when I had already reached home! <3 br="" nbsp="" style="box-sizing: border-box;"> They brought me macaroons🎈3>
Not long after that, my high school friends come. This one is not a surprise as they had already asked me when will I be back in Jakarta coz they wanna come to my house. Hahahha. Even before they came, Michelle actually called my home and asked whether I am home. And my brother gave the phone to me lololol.
M: leni nya ada?
L: kenapa sel?
Then she hung up. Wtf hahaha
She line me afterwards saying "just checking" lololol
What surprised me is they recreated my 17th bday cake LOL. This got me laughing so hard hahahaha. And they forced me to laugh like what I did when I was 17, but I can't hahaha.
High school buddies ♥️ we know each other too well, we know whatever happens, we will still be there for each other 😽
Oh and they thoughtfully prepared the 25 candle and chocolate to replace the 17 as well. Not bad! Thanks gengs ♥️
Next day, which is 25th April, have to go back to work already and it has already 7 days since my birthday but because I just come back, everyone just starts sending in their gifts 😳 now I feel bad for missing on my birthday haha.
One of my distributors send "Tumpeng". They said cake is too mainstream lol and these tumpeng can share with lots of people. Happy lunch!
Everyone has already been waiting to eat the tumpeng lol
And then come a present from a workmate turns into a close friend 🙆🏻
Inside is a set of pajama with very sweet wishes!! Thank you. 🎉
Then my sweet little Jenny sends me pretty roses 😍😍😍
This really made my day 😍 although it can only lasts for a while but still so much loves 😍
My Fanny from UK unexpectedly sent this!! HAHAHAHAHA it says "let's finish all 'nasi tim (steamed rice)' in this world" LOL
We both love nasi tim, we probably shall do that lol.
And it's so pink 😂😂😂
Someone sent me a kate spade bag!!♥️ major major loveeee ♥️😍
It's a small pink sling bag which is so me 😂 and so cute and I really loveeee it. But I did not take any picture 😂 maybe I should.
Another distributor sent me another cake 🙆🏻
Ok that's the kate spade bag lol. I did take a picture apparently.
Comes the next day, someone whatsapped me say he is from grabcar and he is gonna deliver me flowers. I ask from who, the he sent me this picture lol. My two romantic friends 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Before the grab car reach, my receptionist deliver me another package and she wrote from central park. Central park is a mall and I don't think I have anyhow associated with the mall lol. I ask her who send this. she said it's delivered by gojek. when she ask from who, the apps clash so the gojek driver can't see the sender name. She ask where it from and it turns out from central park.
There's a card inside so I know who sent it! Haha thanks buddy 🎈
My colleague asked me to take picture with brown so my face doesn't look that round HAHAHAH
And then come the bouquet from my two besties 😍💐
In the morning, when I opened path, there's memories from 2 years ago where these 2 brought me to a fine dining. I screenshot that and send to our group and demand them for another dinner together coz I miss having dinner with both of them! But we can't coz one of us is currently not in Jakarta :(
Then in the afternoon comes this bouquet 😍 I iz happy 💐😍 ok lo din get the dinner but still get the loves hahaha
How my workstation looks like 💐😍
Then went to one of my business partners office to send flowers coz 25th was her birthday. But turns out they prepared cake for me as well. Dang. 😭🎂. Why ah everyone so nice to me. 😭
Next day (again), Thursday, 27 April 2017, the SMB & DCG team in the office gave me present 🙆🏻 it's a Tory Burch bag yooooo 😍♥️ actually I know they will give me this lol coz the one buying has already discussed with me hahahaha. Nevertheless I still loveeee it so muchhh 😍 in fact I am using it now to SG lol.
After receiving that bag, we went to lunch. During lunch time, an unknown number called me. I almost did not answer it. Hahaha. I literally said "unknown number.. must be banks lol" but I answer it in the end.. and it turns out from a courier and he delivers this BIG FLOWER to me LOL.
We had to get permission to put this in the building lol. Sandy (the one ordered the flower) was with me during lunch so I ask her to get the permission together with me. Lol. She laughed so hard when we see this
And during that day, a lot of people sent the photo of this flower and send to me 😂😂 I can only laugh and thank God for funny colleagues. What's work without them 😛
Even until late at night.. someone still send it to me hahahha
At night before community cell, meet up with Shelvy! She brought me small cake 🎂
🙆🏻🙆🏻 we used to chat up a lot back in Malaysia hahha she was one of my saviors when I had no place to stay, she let me stay in her room ♥️ thank you baby girl.
At night, after community cell, the girls managed to surprise me again! I did not think they will surprise me again 😂 it's been 9 days! But they manage to create very pretty cakeeee for me I super like!! 😍😭😍😭
Hahaha since I love to travel a lot, they make this cake that represents me so well hahahaha. 😂😂👏🏻👏🏻😍😍 always made by my one and only Rowena 😍♥️
I am sooo happy I know them and can call them family. It really is a blessing!! To have a community to support you spiritually ♥️ so glad God gives me these girls 😭♥️
The next day, this comes. Often I wonder what have I done that God loves me so much?
And also this. Another bouquet from my soul sister, Nia 💐♥️ she knows how I love dried flowers lol and she thought I did not manage to bring back the flowers she got me in Korea, so she sends me another one! 😭💐 like why ah she knows me so me and loves me so much 😭
So I thought my birthday celebration has come to an end. It has been 10 days lol.
So I posted this collage pictures to thank everyone and to show my gratitude, which only a picture and caption can't even explain. I truly am grateful beyond words, being loved this much...To have a lot of people thought of me, thought of making me happy during my bday.. it's priceless. It really affects me so much. It makes me feel wonderful. Thank you. ♥️
So I thought my birthday celebration has come to an end.
But then this comes on Saturday haha. After family dinner, when we reach home, this is already at my home. Sent by ci Ipii 🎂 always my role model for generosity!!
Andddddd Sunday... ratna my bestie came and brought me another cake lol. Before she reach, I just discussed with Nia, I hope Ratna did not bring me another cake... but she did lol. She said I am important so she has to celebrate my bday. Hahahaha love her!!
Me and my bestie 🎂♥️
Andddd she gave me this present!! Love love love!!
So I thinkk that's the end of my 25th birthday celebration hahahaha.
Can't thank God enough for these people who shower me with all the love 😍♥️ often I wonder what have I done to deserve all of these coz I think I don't.
My wish this year is to be used more for God's glory. I have been blessed very much by Him, I want this life to be used for Him ♥️
To God be all the glory. Thanks for another great year, God!
