Last Wednesday was my birthday and i successfully utilized that short span of 24 hours (in fact 18 hours, minus the sleeping time) to make my birthday a memorable one.
Nope, i didn't take any leave on my birthday, so it was working day as usual for me - but little bit of excitement.
This year, i didn't hint to my colleagues what i wanted, so my boss baked a tray of Hershey's Moist Chocolate cake for me. Gosh, the chocolate layer was so thick, it was so filling. Though it was a simple cake but it was really thoughtful.

So, i braced through the traffic jam and weather the thunderstorm to reach designated the venue Publika at 820 pm. I called Hansen to tell him that i had reached.
He just smiled with the bad intention look in his eyes when he met me. Then, he covered my eyes and walked me to the secret location. Seriously, i had no idea where he would be taking me. Throughout few minutes of darkness, i thought i would fall down on the stairs.
I really admire him that he could guided me to the restaurant The Social @ Publika without falling or hitting anyone.

Once again, thank you Hansen for throwing the surprise. It is one of the best birthday dinners and thank you for the effort to decorate the place with balloons and the lovely cards.
Talking about the cards, it had been a long while since the last time i received a birthday card though the messages from them have foul language and sarcastic remarks but i really appreciate it.
I had brownies again for my birthday. Yes, i think it's fourth time in a row that i had brownies for my birthday cake. So, it's okay =)

On Thursday, i celebrated my belated birthday with another BFF, Max. So we went to this restaurant called Kembali Kitchen in Best Western Primier Dua Sentral Hotel in Jalan Tun Sambanthan, Kuala Lumpur. We had international buffet. Trust me, Max is like my Bible of navigation in Klang Valley and he also wasn't sure the location, you know how complicated it is to go there. And the parking is RM 2 per half an hour. Yes, you read it right. RM 2 per half an hour.

Before i end my note, once again, my heartfelt gratitude to Hansen for being such an good organizer and Ben who reminded everyone to make themselves available on Wednesday. Thank you, Alfred, Derek, Alden, Alan and Kaylee and Chris (Michelle and Kevin also) who sacfirced your busy schedule just to attend my birthday dinner. The thoughtfulness of yours is beyond words, thank you so much. Thank you to my colleagues and my bosses, Kayle and all the well wishers in Facebook. Thank you.
*There was moment i was so captivated by a song sung by the performers on the stage. They sang one of my favourite love songs of all time, i hope you will dedicate this song to your partner/lover =)
