friday birthday-dance

Friday [July 29, 2011]
A night of music with the birthday-diva, Mariel
Comfort Inn Hotel, Dubai

Mariel is a good friend I met some time around 4 years back. She used to be my roommate during my early years in Dubai and the really good friend that she is does make time to keep in touch every heyday she gets. She's very,very good like that and I, however unfair and unworthy, hold her dear all my heart so I went my way to a night of music in celebration of her big,big day.

Happy birthday, Ye! God bless you all the way.
I had a wonderful night and even more wonderful when I danced my ass away (even if I wasn't sure I was capable of dancing, really) and I was so funny like yikes! (just check out our video here).Hehe.

I guess I might need to get in the habit of dancing (but, sure, when no one is actually watching). HAHAHA.

Tina marrying Jason

Like I have blogged couple of days back, another good friend is getting married.

It's Tina marrying Jason.

We don't know Jason personally and we haven't watched how their relationship together blossomed to what it was that night but we couldn't be any happier for Tina levelling up to marriage, all in the name of LOVE.

They both look really sweet, don't they?
I hated it when I, being the loud-mouthed, didn't totally handle the part of dishing the dirt on her. Oops, I kid. It isn't really like she's done dirty things in her life because she's all wholesome. I was only thinking of dishing the little silent-killer of her, you know :)

From R to L: Hanggaw Pamyoks, myself and the happiest of couple
The 'First Dance' of the couple was a lot of fun, dancing all hearts away. We all looked at them in happiness.

To the most happiest, JUST MARRIED, Tina & Jason:
Together you, two, are complete and you make a sweet and lovely couple. Wishing you guys a lifetime of love and happiness!

birthday night out

Yesterday's random. I had no plans to go out after work until the coolest of work mates blurted out the decided and pre-arranged buffet dinner deal at the Chelsea Ramada Hotel.
Graciously, I okay-ed.
After all, 't was my birthday. By good luck, yea? :)

Before I knew it, there was another plan to go to the bar. Wow, pretty perfect actually! 1 bottle of strongbow that seemed to go down easily was enough for me to say I, sure, had a good time.

I couldn't put any happier face when the pool table was there allowing us to stay a little bit longer. Nothing of a power ball pocketing (I could hardly get a good shot). Just for fun.

32 years of insanity

And sounds like I'm happy I stay the same, huh. Whoa :D
Seriously, I have always looked forward to some extra-ordinary moments on my birthdays, far as I daydream. But today's just another day. There's nothing so magical like all I dreamed it to be. (except that I got scored of a pizza party.haha)
Another year older but not any wiser. TSK TSK.
Happy birthday to me!

the quite fun-taste-tic pre-birthday surprise

Shocks! Obviously, I was powered a mega-watt look and smile on my face like this :D

First off, let me tell you what in the world happened and how stupefied I had been.

Some time two weeks ago, hanggaw capa asked me to join with her and the husband in their plan of meeting a guy relative (single-ness guaranteed, puede!) coming by for a short vacation of sorts. Perfect reason to join, luxurious dinner at the luxurious Emirates Palace Hotel. How could I ever say NO? Course I said, sure! Big time sure! I was excited and posted Le vere pronto, palacio!

All the long while I'd played the victim (with a pinch of torment telling it now) until I found out later that Thursday night [21st July] that dear hanggaw friends actually booked a dinner all for an early birthday catch-up celebration. As in 5 days early so who would have thought? Even it is something I dont really have mucho in mind today, really. I blame it to being penniless, though. I was super glad yet with a face so giggling-funny for words (as in, they were tickled like that) at my dull and lull reaction to see no one but hanggaw mariano (alone she sat, unfamiliarly). HAHA. Screwy, huh!

The surprise was successfully pulled off because well, my birthday isn't until the day after tomorrow. All thanks to the hanggaws because the night was quite packed for me with unbelievably, Emirates Palace Hotel (WRONG!), Tiara (Check!) and Hilton (Check!). Plus the loveliest of presents, what more can I ask?

Tiara is some fine-dining revolving restaurant I, for one, was eyeing for it long time but rather thought I would never ever have a good enough of an excuse to surely spend a fortune (Well, sometimes I'm all fortunate to get things I least expect...amazingly all for free. Hehe) dining out here. The place is altogether distinct, classy and supernatural. Sightseeing 360 degrees of the beautiful Abudhabi gave us nothing short of fantastic (no motion sickness, even). And the heavenly seafoods (whole lobster and mussels, most esp.)...I salute!

(All apologies to hanggaw capa, she's not so lucky to have some seafood allergies. Shame, though)

Then, surprisingly, played a happy birthday song and along came the guys (as in, all guys) joining us and singing to the tune with a chocolate fudge birthday cupcake rolled out on the table. How sweet! I had myself a beautiful, really special pre-birthday surprise.
(Thank you, all Tiara guys!...except that I didn't really like how the way you spelled Neli. hehe)

Sumptous seafoods at Tiara and a drink of Viennesse Iced Coffee at the fabulous Hilton hotel...all with the bestest, however hanggaws, of friends got me quite the loveliest and real fun-taste-tic days before my birthday.

Hanggaws, that was uber thoughtful and all around sweet of you!...literally and figuratively sweet as I am, though. Oops. Seriously, thank you, thank you. Like major,major THANK YOU! It was all touching and special and I feel all awesome to be loved. I loooves you too big time! :)

And lots of pictures, here :)

Huggs to you, hanggaws!
