The 19th Birthday Week!

This backdated post sums up my entire birthday celebrations this year!

19th Part I: Granny's Handmade Dinner
Granny called me up on a weekday during internship and asked me to her house for dinner because she wanted to cook special noodles for my birthday. Birthday & Noodles, kinda like a tradition between my beloved granny & myself.

She believes in eating noodles on birthdays, and it's been going like that since young, so I make it a point to have noodles as a representation of 大了 1 year older!

Absolutely tasty!

Look at the spread. It's all for me!

Always allow myself to overeat when I'm at granny's. I know, somehow I'll just end up eating lots and feeling super full. Guess it's because she cooks my favourite dishes and I seldom go her place for dinner, so I'll just let loose and eat as much as possible!

Grandparents handed me my Birthday presents...

19th Part II: Back to TP & Night @ Helipad
Birthday Eve was spent celebrating the official end of my internship with my lovely colleagues over at Chomp Chomp. Headed to school to meetup with the Biz peeps, mentally supporting Mel, Zaxe, Jiahou & the rest for the OTC Appeal Session. I swear, it was a crowd!!!

380846_10150513661333665_706803664_10451258_1215604170_n

What a mental torture, anyways. Shan't eloborate, it's over! Just that, I don't believe in appeals for camps, honestly. I believe that if the individual is not a problem kid & most importantly, has a passion/heart to serve for camp, just let the person in! It's not easy being a GL, that's I can say... and I'm surprise so many people are interested in attending a 6day straight camp... so why reject! Sighs! Not up to me to decide... Back to my Birthday Eve! (:

Headed over to Melody's place to get ready for some clubbing party session @ Helipad

We were famished :( Decided to stopby a random coffeeshop for supper.

Yummy Soup Noodles!

That's where I officially celebrate my 1st second of turning 19.

The girls sang the classic 'Happy Birthday' song for me LOUDLY in the coffeeshop... Hmm, super embarrassed! On a sidenote, what a place for my birthday!
*sighs*

Didn't think so much, was just so hungry :(

Getting ready to get out!

It was my first time there & as usual, me being me, I was very excited to try out new places!
Too bad, it rained and they closed the rooftop area so we couldn't enjoy the view from the peak :( Guess I'll head back there next time round.

Turns out that Helipad's entrance is at the side of the multistory carpark, I never knew!

19th Part III: Birthday Staycation @ Studio M

HAPPY 19th to MYSELF!

19th Part IV: Church
My birthday fell on a Saturday & I have church services on Saturday evenings. So, in between the staycation, I headed to Nexus for service. What better way to spend my birthday with my creater, my maker, my father above. To the person who knows me the best, inside out, thankyou God for everything, every little thing you have blessed me with. Even if & even when the whole world fails me, you never & will never ever fail me. Thank You.

Some group shots after service. Love these girls of mine!

Was just hanging outside Nexus afterwhich, and suddenly some of them came out with a cake and started singing me the Happy Birthday song. I was quite surprise, plus I had a pretty cake!

My grandmother would totally love Virina for this thoughtful gift... Because she's always asking V to make me drink water. hahaha!
