Its good to have great friends!

I would like so say a big thank you to all those who wished me happy birthday, for all the gifts, cakes and parties. Evidently enough, I'm a huge fan of parties. Traditionally i would throw 2 parties for me birthday. The 1st one would be a mega clubbing session (normally combined with Andrew) and the 2nd one would be a chill out session at my house.

This year I wasnt really in the mood to party since I had so many things on my mind. However, I must say that I am extremely lucky to have the wealth of friends.


Since 29 June till last weekend, friends have celebrated my birthday by way of dinners, lunches, booze ups, etc, etc... I think i had a total of 4 cakes this year, my favourite being the one Joanne and Bree got me. Not many gifts as people enjoy giving me food treats and alcohol... Not like i'm complaining la.

However, on the 9th of July, I couldnt resist the temptation of having a party. *chuckles*. Since it was gonna be at Somo on my birthday itself, i might as well make a few invitations instead of my regular kakis. So I invited about 20 people... out of which, 10 didnt make it due to super last minute invite as i only sent out the sms like a day or 2 before the 9th. Irrespective, i had about 45 guests! surprise surprise...

Obviously i had to have the party at Somo right. I mean, its like my favourite hang out now, so there's no reason why i shouldnt have my little celebration there.

A big thank you to Andrew and Ken the co-owners of Somo for their warm hospitality, service and drinks. I think from now forth, whenever i wanna have a nice simple function, i'll have it at Somo. It truly makes sense! In fact, Ken was nice enough to provide us with some free booze and chocolates, etc.

Here's a picture of Ken and Andrew with Joanne and Bree during more sober times.

Anyhow, i just wanna say that i had a great birthday celebration and would love to share some of the many cam whoring pictures for all.

I thought having a party on a Monday would deter many from coming... but what do you know... it was another succesful party...

I have no regrets of having my birthday party on a Monday and at Somo.... I think everyone had fun, considering the fact that we started at about 7pm and ended at 4am....


Thanks Joanne and Bree for the lovely cake.....




Here's the Tokyo Rush that Ken made for me, courtesy of the good ol' broadwalk guys... i believe it was Victor who bought me my first one...

Tokyo Rush is a Ken creation made up of 4 different types of potent alcohol. I was suppose to bottoms it all up. Well obviously its me... I finished it and enjoyed a couple more!!





My favourite 2 meals @ Somo... the Yakatori and Sake Ikura Don



They seriously thought graveyards and more yakatoris were gonna take me down... How foolish!



And the Cam whoring begins!







We even did some Salsa dancing.... woo hoo!








Ok ok ok... i know i'm such a camwhore.... i'll upload all the other pics and videos onto my photo blog soon k... just bear with me....
