It’s actually been a really long time since I wrote a blog post. Almost a month?
In my previous post, I did mention that it was my birthday month, which explains why I was too busy to write anything. I mean, I hardly tweet anymore! The only thing that gets updated regularly is my Instagram – so, if you’re interested in what I get up to on a daily basis follow me on there. My birthday month has also made me very broke, just because two of my close friends are also born in August and we’re all grouped right together at the end. This means that my money flew away into travel, food and presents. Totally worth it though.
My birthday? It was actually the best birthday I’ve had in a while because I got to spend it with both family and friends. In the morning, me, my mum and little sister (who isn’t going to be that little anymore on the 4th as she’ll be turning 14 x_x) went to Westfield to do a little shopping. I got my free gift from BodyShop which you get on your birthday if you have their loyalty card and also a free hand massage. The girl who served me couldn’t believe that I turned 21 that day – said I looked about 18/19. Haha, well thanks! The number of people who have told me this in the past few weeks is ridiculous. I had some grandma ask me if I’ve left school already, indicating she thought I was 16. @_@
I bought a few things, but not much, and then went to go get my nails done. I’ve never had my nails done before but it was nice. Really relaxing, cause you just chill and let them do their thing. After I went home to chill for a bit before heading out for my birthday dinner with friends. I actually planned the whole night out a while ago – getting tables booked, numbers right, travel plans, etc. I’m a stickler for things going right, and honestly, it couldn’t have gotten any more perfect.
I chose a Mexican restaurant called Mestizo for my birthday dinner and the food there was amazing. I had some chicken thing with vegetables in some sauce that was a little spicy. Best thing? We all got free margaritas for checking into Foursquare. Bonus! I had friends from my secondary school, my close friend whom I’ve known since I was 4, my best friend, and friends from university who came to help me celebrate. Couldn’t have asked for anything more, to be honest.
Do you know what the highlight of my day was? Me, Mutay and two of my friends were on our way to the restaurant when we got stopped by a policewoman asking us to walk the other way around because they were filming something on that road. At first, I didn’t know what they were filming and wasn’t too bothered really. Until I spotted Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman!!!! I screamed so loudly that Martin Freeman actually turned around and spotted me and was looking at me like, “What the hell?!” I managed to get a picture of them from behind but there were too many barriers/security. Still, the BEST thing to happen ever. Also, it means they’re filming Sherlock series 3 which needs to come back NOW.
After the restaurant, we all went to a bar called Adventure Bar which so fun. Most people bought me birthday drinks plus I had two drinks for myself which should spell trouble but I didn’t really care. After all, you only turn 21 once 🙂 #YOLO By the end of the night, the bartender was twerking upside down against the wall to ‘Twerk It’ by Busta Rhymes ft. Nicki Minaj. Funniest thing, ever.
Overall, it was an amazing birthday and I am so grateful to the people who came to help me celebrate.
I am also so thankful that I have reached the age of 21. God is good.
Now I think it’s time for me to visit the USA… Las Vegas ain’t ready for me.
As long as you’re enjoying your life outside the online world, you’re fine~ I usually see your Instagram pictures and it looks like you’re having a blast! Worry not, you went broke for a good cause, haha.
I’m glad to hear that you really enjoyed celebrating your birthday!! Getting free things from stores on your birthday is awesome. You do look young, so live it up :D. But it is kind of ridiculous sometimes with people saying something about you looking younger, eh?
Getting free things because of Foursquare is awesome :D! It’s so cool that you got Martin Freeman’s attention and got a picture of some sort of them. Wow, you definitely got a lot of drinks on your birthday night~
You look so pretty with your birthday dress!!! :D. You do need to visit the US!!! (You should also visit in 2 years when I turn 21 and can legally drink outdoors XD)
Looks like you had a blast on your birthday! Yeah, August birthdays are the best I come to find out despite the heat, etc; I had a great birthday myself. It was the best birthday in awhile to be honest and it was themed! My husband had a blast decorating for it.
Yeah, your dress and your pictures are lovely. Your mom did a good job!
Anyhow, I’ll follow you on Instagram. I’m always looking forward to following more people. I’m Shellyyum .
Happy belated 21st! It’s awesome to see Martin Freeman on the streets and you even managed to get a photo of him! I’m envious of you! Your birthday dress looks classy too. I like your birthday cake design. It’s a pity that I don’t have such a cute birthday cake when I turned 21. 🙁
No, seriously, I had to comment on this one! I could die! Forget Orlando Bloom! You were right next to Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman! Ugh! SOOOO Jealous!
