This only happens once a year and I guess a few times in my lifetime. I turned a year older today! What makes this birthday more special is the fact that I'm entering another decade. Yes, I reached the age that I'm dreading for the longest time. I'm officially 30 today.

I started my birthday celebration by treating my workplace friends for dinner. This has been an annual tradition I intend to keep. 

This is one of the best things about having your birthday on December. The atmosphere is naturally festive.

We had a great Chinese dinner accompanied by stories and laughter.

What's a birthday without my favorite flats and a new bag courtesy of my friends G, T and C. Thank you dearest girls! 

I initially wanted to write a meaningful birthday post. Unfortunately, I'm hindered by some body ache brought about by a surprise dysmenorrhea and severe stiff neck. Perfect pre-birthday gift?! Hopefully, I will feel better later. I have to meet my paternal family for another birthday meal.

Happy Sunday!
