My Big 30

July 24 has always been very special to me. This day I will be turning 30...and it is very hard to admit that I am no longer on my 20's. (...huhuhu. Experiencing "mid-life" crisis) I have to celebrate this momentous occasion with my closest friends with an intimate party.

I would like to say "Thank You" for all those who greeted me and extended their best wishes on my special day, more over to my friends who took time and celebrated their night with me celebrating the day that I turn 30. "Thank you very much for making the night even more special!!!"

Get ready for a night of cam-whoring, non-stop laughter and hellava-story to tell. Warning: Huge photo-dump ahead... ;)

Nothing fancy, just a night of delicious food, good booze and warm friends. ;)

I am still glad though, that people closest to my heart was able to share this very special night with me. ;)  I HEART you guys!!!!!!!!

Thank you guys!!!!!!!!!!  I will see you soon ;)

My look inspiration for the night is "Birthday Suit", all nude colors. I wore my Vintage Japanese short-sleeves coat, nude short pants, nude colored socks and nude brogues. I didn't go a chance to have a LookBook worthy shot but will try this outfit again in the future so everyone can see. ;)

The "STAR" of the night or should I say "Angel" of the night. This was my 1st Surprise of the night- an erotic cake. It was an awkward-funny moment for me. Everyone was laughing and teasing about the cake. Mental note: This is is not a Bridal Shower. Hehehe. It was delicious though, from Kink Cakes. ;)
Picture
Yen brought out his 1st surprise exactly 12am July 24. To my surprise...this is what I will be "blowing" It was such a good laugh
Picture
I immediately served the cake to everyone. I jokingly said, "Any evidences of this cake shouldn't be seen by anybody else.
Picture
Picture
Message on the Cake: "May you be Happy on your big 30." Sweet!!!
Picture
Toasting!!!

Next set of photos are really funny (...for me) It is rare that you will catch me with a "Paparrazi Shot" I can instantly detect shots of me taken miles away..hehe
Picture
Me...again
Picture
...and again. Hehehe ;)
Picture
With my good friend Arjay. Came in late since he is a workaholic. He was on leave that day but still opted to go to work. Gave him a professional advise, "When you're on leave, you should be on leave. So as to avoid being burnt-out." I am carrying my baby Milan. She is so cute and "full-figured" Stayed with me the entire night. ;)

There was a "No Smoking" ban on my party. It was a smokers dream. I was supposed to quit smoking by the time I reached 30, but I asked for another year of extension..."Good Health I need your cooperation. Just one more year, I promise..."

What a mess!!! Hehehe...just like in the song of Katy Perry, "Last Friday Night."

This 30th Birthday is truly memorable and epic. I even got my Birthday Wish come true earlier. (...work stuff which I am really really excited. I have already shared it with some, but I will formally announce once everything pulls through.

I totally enjoyed my simple and intimate party. Although there were friends who were not able to attend, greetings and best wishes overflowed. Again, many Thanks for celebrating this special day for me.
