Now, let’s begin.
Well, guys. I made it to the ripe old age of 22, somehow. I’m not even exaggerating when I say it’s been a hell of a year since my 21st. Nevertheless, you live and you learn. I had a really good birthday and it was much more toned down from last year. Must be a sign I’m getting old.
I opted for a family dinner with the inclusion of Mutay and another one of my closest friends. We all went to a Filipino restaurant called Lutong Pinoy for a Kamayan dinner. Kamayan means to eat with your hands and that’s exactly what we did. You reserve ahead of time and choose what food you want – I chose: lechon kawali, BBQ chicken wings, tocino and Filipino beef steak. It also comes with sweet corn, vegetables, rice, spring rolls and sinigang.
Just look at this picture and you’ll understand why I had to unbutton my jeans after I finished eating.

It was actually the first Filipino restaurant I’ve been to in London. Definitely going again. Of course, I can’t forget to mention the awesome presents Mutay got me. She’s such a sweetie and actually saw my tweet about wanting Hannah Hart’s new book because Hannah is amazing and cute and I love her. So, Mutay got me just that and a personalised Coke bottle 😀
I also got a Cheshire cat t-shirt and Pharrell t-shirt from friends at work. Definitely wasn’t expecting anything from them, but it was nice anyway!
Friday night I gathered my friends from secondary school, university and work and we partied the night away at Be At One in Shoreditch. Best night ever. The bartenders were hilarious, the music was amazing and I was just so happy that my friends were there to celebrate my birthday with me. I drank one too many cocktails, but then again can you blame me?
Got complimented on my teeth, as well, which was a first. I also got more cool presents including shot roulette, two Marvel comics, a Harley Davidson t-shirt and magnet and bookmark. Present round up = top notch!
Thank you to all the people who wished me Happy Birthday on Twitter. Y’all are cute 🙂
Here’s to many, many more years.
