I Say Hello

It's almost 2011, peeps..how do you feel? :)

I'd like to welcome the new year with a new spirit yet the same person inside...let us all make progress, help more people, gain more achievements, maintain a good health, embrace changes, while keeping our values & beliefs strong.

Let us be comfortable with who we are, what we have, and we what we are capable of. Let us reject any negative influences, and remain positive and humble every time.

Let us never feel inferior nor superior, just content, tolerant and grateful.

Let us always be true to ourselves.

Happy welcoming 2011, everyone. Keep 100% original..:)

Aannnddd mmmmm I don't know whether I should be telling you guys about this cuz I'm really shy, but I actually got called by an agency for a beverage advertisement audition...it's funny how my first response was "confused". Yes, I'm seriously confused why anyone would be interested in me hahaha...but I went for it anyway today, and I pretty much think I embarrassed myself...I'm no advertisement material...but who knows! :D

One more thing: I. LOVE. WILLOW SMITH. I'm officially a fan...:)

Cacaaaaaang (our driver) it's my birthdaaaayyyy! "Bibiiiiii (our domestic helper) it's my birthdaaaaaaayyy!" (you get the picture, right? ;p). Moving on, checked your Up orders & sent them off...:)

2) Received a lovely bag from Moozee...I looooved it so much I decided to wear it directly today! Hahah...


3) Had a small, simple birthday lunch with my mom and dad by having pizza delivered to our house hehehe...Keenan, my nephew, also joined us! :D

4) Went to One Piece hair studio (which belongs to the same group with Shunji Matsuo) for a scalp treatment...yay! :)



5) Got a birthday dinner surprise from S and friends...you guys are sooooo sweet! I really didn't see this coming...:) Thank you for the surprise, the dinner, the gifts...I love you, all! :)


6) Reached home and got even more surprised with a birthday gift from Ami The Vintagist...it's sooooooo lovely I'll share with you guys what was inside it tomorrow...thank you so much, Ami! :)


So that's it! The first day of being 26 hehehe...I pray to Allah for a blissful, meaningful year ahead...amin...:)

Good night, peeps! :)

PS: I love you, S...you're the best...:)

Happy Birthday, Diana.

I'm 26 years old! Woah. Usually I have a lot to say during my birthday, but this time I am rather short of words. All I can say is that I am very, very thankful to Allah for blessing me with so much happiness, and by happiness, that includes sadness as well. Being sad is an element of happiness, you know? :)

Dear Allah,

Thank you for allowing me to have a wonderful relationship with and support from my parents. Thank you for keeping me strong during my long-distance relationship with S, and bringing him close to me this year. I guess we should tie the knot soon, don't You think? (code for S). Thank you for all the friends you bring into my life, I am glad that my number of friends always keep increasing. Thank you for giving me the strength and patience in responding to all the challenges I had to face. Thank you for all the opportunities given, because of You I finally had the courage to do what I have been wanting to do. Thank you for keeping everyone I love healthy, including myself as well. And thank you for Up. This is a start to a new life at a new age. I love You.

Dear readers,

Thank you for having been with me, virtually and in real life, since the very first time I blogged. It's been 3,5 years already! I actually feel that I have grown with you guys. Your comments, your emails, your never-ending support, are what have driven me to become the person I am today. It's funny how life gets around, but I am glad you were all there with me. I hope I have been a good person for you all, and I also hope I have contributed a part in your life. Together we are strong...:)

So I guess that's it. No matter the number, I am forever young. Happy birthday, me! :)


Xoxo,
Diana
