Every year on your birthday, you get a chance to start new.

“Age is opportunity no less than youth itself.” – Henry Wadsworth

Your birthday is the only time of year where you have the excuse to do what you want to do and be who you want to be without being judged. What better way than to have a month long birthday celebration to make the most of it? It is extremely exhausting but worth it. With my busy 7 day work schedule, my birthday is the only time of year I can catch up with my friends and family guilt free from work. I would like to share with you some highlights of my birthday month over March and April 2014.


Week 1  – Family Celebrations

Three year old children are pretty good with camera phones.
Good things come in threes….

Week 3  – Dinner at Cutler & Co with friends

Seven extremely different professionals having dinner together makes conversations extremely interesting.
My best friend Pauline who is an Accredited Practising Dietician.
Our videographer Linh who is the owner of Celenii Event Services have been filming our Lina’s Music House end of year concerts for three years now. More to come…
Dr. Jia Lin specialises in Psychiatry. Smart girl!
Yanie is a Mandarin Chinese teacher who tutors me in Mandarin also.  Her boyfriend works in the tourism industry. Sweet couple!
Dr. Tommy Liu just graduated from his Phd and is now doing full time research at the Walter Eliza Institute to help save lives. Smart guy!
Who needs presents when you have such amazing friends? Presents are like icing on the cake…. it makes things sweeter =)


Week 4  – Afternoon tea @ Madame Brussels

The weather was just right and the interior design is beautiful. A great place to relax with friends on a Sunday afternoon.
A relaxing way to end my final week of birthday celebrations.

Melbourne has been voted the most liveable city in the world three years in a row and was recently voted to have the best coffee in the world. No matter where I travel to in the world, I will still call Melbourne home.
