It was my b'day yesterday and I didn't wanna celebrate. Been too busy and didn't expect a b'day gift from my boyfriend either. In fact, I told him not to buy me anything this year. Of course, he didn't listen to me. He never does right? ;)
When I got home, my eyes widened in surprise. There were roses strewn all over my room and there was this one gift sitting on my bed. I was so touched he went through all this trouble and I knew he wrapped the gift himself coz it was wrapped so badly lol ;)
I thought it was a book but my goodness!! It was a lap top! Wow, the latest lenovo netbook is so incredibly small. How handy. It can easily fit into my handbag! Maybe he does listen to me after all *chuckle*. I used to complain about my shoulder hurting from lugging around my previous lap top. It was really heavy.
Here's the crazy thing. My parents got me the MACbook Air. Wow!! and for the same reason my boyfriend got me the Lenovo. My Mum said my shoulders would be lopsided if I don't watch it hehe so after being stuck with the same clunky lap top for ages, I now have TWO brand new ones. I can't believe it! So lucky!
The MACbook Air is a work of art. The world's thinnest lap top. No idea how to use it but I'll learn. Never had a MAC before but I'm really looking forward to it and my new netbook is gonna be perrrrfect for travelling coz it's so small. Love them equally!! Yay!
I also got an artistic painting, a belly dancing skirt, some exotic teas and a great big purple candle (I really LOVE candles. They're all over my house) Oh, and my sister got me the Tao Oracle filled with ancient wisdom. I'm excited to learn how to do a reading. Perhaps I should get a crystal ball too and read your fortunes since I have these cards now? haha! ;)
I didn't know how all my friends seemed to know it was my bday coz they were smsing me from every corner of the world. They ALL couldn't possibly have such great memory isn't it (I did a bit of detective work n found out my boyfriend wrote to all them!) And guess what? I went to a friend's place for drinks last night but he invited all my really old friends. Huh? Yup, you guessed it. The thoughtful boyfriend again got them all together at my friend's place. I loved it. There were only 10 of us, great conversations and everyone re-connecting and just catching up. So unexpected and these were some of my oldest friends in KL.
I was swaying a bit toward the end of the night *chuckle* It was the champagne. It's deceptively easy to drink it la. I had so much fun. It was one of those special evenings you don't forget because it was so effortless, so warmly spontaneous and most importantly arranged with love. Thank you boyfriend, you know who you are! (sorry, no pic. He's camera shy! ;)
