Thank you Chen, Ah boy, Mistipurple, kyh, LB, May, ECL, Alicia, Hong&Amy, Rinnah, Winn, Misha, Keeyit, Christina and my bro the messages/cakes/gifts/kisses/hugs/chicken drumsticks & wings (FB, blog posts, mobile, beautiful Malaysia postcard, blog comment box). Y'all are a star! Also thanks to those who left their greetings in other blogs. They all mean a lot to me and I am thankful to have you nice people around, though not really physically around, aiya you know what I mean lah.

*Signature big tight-till-cannot-breath hugsssss to ALL OF YOU*


On the day before
Potluck dinner at Irene's place. I want to thank my Wellington friends for coming and made it such an enjoyable potluck party, filled with very yummy lip-smacking food. Special thanks to Irene, Kuok, Julia and Jason for offering their place for the potluck. I really had a good time!


The cake, taro flavoured though not as big as the one from kyh


All of us!


On the day
It was a fine, sunny day. Rick was being such a darling, he brought me to Botanical Garden for the Rose Festival. The garden was filled with beautiful, multi colour roses with pleasant scent of roses wafting thought the air. The roses were in their full bloom all in different colours and sizes.








NOW...my camwhoring picture. Hehehehe Sorry wor, no tartan skirts nor tartan panties nor tartan towel.....hehehehe




Ok, before you all throw out all your breakfast/morning tea/lunch/afternoon tea/dinner, better change subject!

There was also a farm-pet fare going on there, so we went to look see look see......there were pony, rabbit, chicken, llama, lambs.......



This llama didn't even move a bit through out my time there, she was sitting still like a toy.

While we were busy patting the animals and taking photos, something caught my eyes. There was this cute little thing tottering around......



Ooooh~~ MY~ GOD~, the "dalmation piglet" is sooooo cute! She was sniffing and toddling around...aiyo really cute.....


*Piggy was really jealous when he found out that dalmation piglet is cuter than him. Muahahaha*

Later, we proceed to Whitby restaurant in James Cook hotel for a traditional English high tea. The cakes and club sandwiches were heavenly!





So there gone my 2007 birthday, a year younger and a year more wiser. Muahahaha. It was a simple, relaxed yet a memorable one!



*Piggy is still upset about the Dalmatian piglet* :(
