some due gratitude

i think some gratitude is in order...

I was soo darn busy last month, I missed out thanking many who have given me a lot. Now, where shall I start..?

My poly pals:

Bas, Inder, Kai, Khama & Meng ~ THANK YOU.
I totally dig this bracelet!

Funny thing, Khama apologetically told me that it's also my (very) belated birthday gift.

Coincidentally, he gave it to me on Hari Raya Aidiladha - my birthday, based on the Islamic calendar.

Sheng Leong & Wengyi ~ THANK YOU.
The glass box is gorgeous.

My dear brother:

Who was determined to get me a present on Aidiladha. And kept bugging me to think of what I want.

He refused the request for diamonds, though.

So my cousin help me suggest Adidas Mary-Janes.

This old school design is uber-cool.

He actually went down the whole stretch of Orchard Road, looking for this version. And finally found it in Raffles City. Imagine the trouble he went through....


Mum & Dad:

THANK YOU for the bling-bling watch!

My paternal cousins, Sue & Nor:

They had told me of some 'surprise' cupcakes that they ordered alongside the ones for his side.

They jokingly mentioned designs of a pair of Korean bride & groom, complete with the red cheeks.

Imagine my surprise when I opened the box and found this!


Call me selfish but I initially refused to let anyone touch them.

Coincidentally, Arsenal have a match that very night. So I relented and told everyone that they can eat the cupcakes only if they won. ONLY the ones with the balls & boots. The ones with the Arsenal embelm are reserved for only fellow Gunners fans.

I just can't imagine fans of rival teams *ahem* (the devils) *ahem* taking a bite of that sacred embelm. No way!

My paternal cousins:

I knew something was up when you keep bugging me for my favourite scent.

And this new range from Calvin Klein - Euphoria Blossom, suit me just fine.

And they made me apply the body lotion on my hands so they will smell great for my engagement ceremony...
