OLD BUT GOLD - 25th Birthday (June 2020)

Hello, BLOG!
I am officially back.... I hope?
I've always thought of blogging and posting for the past few years but most of my blogposts were never finished and some of 'em... I just wanted to keep private. So it all piled up in my drafts folder.
But today I decided to make a change - not just change the layout of my blog but also post something!

Today's post is going to be about my 25TH BIRTHDAY. I actually turned 25 last month (June) so this post is a month and a bit late. Oops! I've always loved celebrating birthdays... not just mine but everybody else's too. It's too obvious that I love having cake! HAHAHA.

My birthday celebration this year was completely different from any of the birthday celebrations that I had before because as we all know we're currently facing a pandemic. It's such a pity however I still am grateful to be alive and to be able to celebrate my birthday with the few most important people in my life - my girlfriends, my family & my boyfriend.

I felt happy that during my birthday, the lockdown restrictions in our area have already eased and they've already allowed small outdoor gatherings to happen.

And so this year... for a change, I decided to celebrate my 25th by having a PICNIC & GLAMPING PARTY with my girls. 

Shoutout to @the_teepee_tribe for organising the bell-tent, the glamping set-up and the picnic set-up for me! 
The Teepee Tribe Team came early in the morning to set-up and thank God because the weather was still dry then... however, they had to put the picnic table inside the tent because the predicted weather for that day was RAIN, RAIN and MORE RAIN. 

It didn't stop us from having fun though!

I only 4 of my girl friends - Xyza, Reyn, Meiyan & Marty... however, Marty couldn't attend. So there were only 4 of us during the PICNIC & GLAMPING PARTY.

I can definitely say that I had so much fun - even if there were only 4 of us. I loved how there were a lot of sweets and my friends brought 2 cakes! 

So I had 3 cakes all in total including the cake that my parents bought me plus the French Macaroons that I've ordered and some Red Velvet Crinkles.
During the picnic, we had sandwiches, a grazing platter plus a few drinks.

We then finished off the night by having dinner with my family and then carried on with the glamping. Honestly, it was a really fun and unforgettable experience. I then woke up the next day to have an extended celebration of my birthday with my boyfriend since I only organised an all girls picnic & glamping party on my actual day :)

That sums up my 25th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION. It was all good in the hood. So thankful and blessed to be surrounded by such amazing people! 
Quality over quantity indeed!
It was good to forget reality for a day as I've been completely stressed with life since 2020 came but that's a different story - which could possibly mean a different blogpost! 

To everyone who greeted me on my special day.. may it be through Facebook, Instagram, Text Message, WhatsApp, Twitter or personally, thank you so much for the greetings and for remembering my special day. I appreciate y'all!
