Sunday, October 19


Having going through a long twenty years, I would have never thought I will have the good fortune to mark this special day with my treasureed friends all at the same time and place. A most sincere thank you to everybody for coming and giving me the most special evening I had for the longest time.

I intended to give a small thank you speech but was too nervous then and anxious to distribute the cake. That is one small regret I had that night. Another being I did not take enough photographs and videos, especially with my char bors.

Special thanks..

1. Ah Chiu, Joyce, Mingwei, Baobao
Ah Chiu, thank you very much for making the detour and accompanying me to pick up and balloons. I feel so paiseh for making you sweat in your cute top from all the shifting of tables. I was so nervous at the beginning so it certainly helped you beside me. Thanks for helping me clear everything at the end. I love you to bits. I owe you more than just a pot of tea by the riversidePaiseh to Joycestick and Mineral for helping to blow the balloons. I love the "J" wall too. It was a little Paris Hilton-ish but still very cute. I really appreciate the efforts! Thanks for bringing JonJon! I will go for another huge feast at Holiday Inn with your vouchers! And thanks for bringing me Wentworth Miller... Thanks to Baobao for being in my mind through the party...

My favourite cousins, thanks for sharing the evening with me. I will always remember the little games we play when we get together when we were young, especially in the old Muar house. Thanks Kailian, for always being very helpful and kind to me. I always enjoy our little chats. Remember "north star"? Hehe.

8. All the uncles and aunties.
For coming to join in the fun and contribute very much to my US fund. I really don't bear to spend the money.
