I was just looking through this blog, and realized that a few years ago, I’d written a piece freaking out about turning a quarter of a century old. Now that I have actually reached this milestone however, I feel surprisingly fine. Obviously there are still a lot of things to figure out and areas to improve in. But I’m looking forward to the challenges ahead. A little like the anticipation and apprehension I felt right before college.

Thank you again to everyone who has made it yet another happy happy birthday this year. I feel loved. Hopefully all my birthdays ahead will be the same 🙂

I finally got my long time wish of getting a cupcake tower this year!

I even got a floating balloon, which I’ve been thinking about for this year!

We’re still trying to figure out what the bottom part says… because it is definitely not my name.

Hydrangeas and roses.

And a taste of all my favourite desserts in Hong Kong! From Sift (for the cupcakes), to Zoe (above)..


..to Cova….

..to Vero. A joint birthday celebration with a very old friend. First time in over 2 decades!

And lets not forget the delicious homemade carrot cake from S!
