My 33rd Birthday

For my birthday, I told Richard that I only wanted 2 things: a day of pampering at the spa and a new bag.  He offered to take us on a weekend getaway but my heart was already set on my birthday wishes.  An overnight stay at a pool villa by the beach didn't interest me.  All I wanted was a 90-minute massage and a mani-pedi.  I didn't want anything else.  Oh yes, and the bag, ofcourse :)

It was a simple celebration -- no birthday banner, no decor...but the lack of birthday decor and ambiance was made up for by Richard and Aly's surprises.  And they really made sure that everything was perfect for my birthday.  They were waiting for me when I woke up and gave me birthday cards with the sweetest messages ever.  I was definitely treated like a queen!
a
a
All dressed up for my birthday :)  Aly said we were wearing special clothes because it was a special day.  Heehee!
a
a
Look at my big girl baby!  That skirt is actually a dress that she's never worn.  The top part was a bit tight on the chest so I made her wear a shirt and cinched it with a belt.
a
a
I love that she's wearing black, which she doesn't normally wear but since it was a special day, she didn't object to it when I chose her outfit.
a
a
The hubby doesn't need any guidance from me.  I always thought that he's a good dresser -- one of the things that I love about him :)

One more photo from the waist up to hide all that we need to hide.  Heehee!

On our way to Gaysorn to pick up my new baby a.k.a Richard + Aly's big birthday gift.
a
a
It was a quick shopping trip because #1 my feet were starting to hurt -- haven't worn heels in a long time!  But that's ok because I had a "tired feet" spa treatment scheduled later in the day, which brings us to #2 the spa awaits!
a
a
Dressed down for the spa.  
a
a
I wanted to try out the other spas in Bangkok, but I still ended up with my suki, Green Leaf Spa, since it's just an elevator ride away.  I didn't want to waste precious time by getting stuck in traffic.
a
a
I got a pedicure...
a
a
...and a manicure with paraffin dip.  Special talaga dba!  But my hands needed that -- badly!  Overworked na kasi.
a
a
Tried on metallic nail polish for a change...channeling Chanel's Graphite nail polish.

Flowers from Richard (top) and from our S.A Khun Waraporn (bottom).

Birthday cake and card from Chatrium.

It's #32 in the LA Times 50 Signature Bags list.  Oh, if I could have at least 5% of the bags on that list, I'd be one happy cow. :)  Sweetie, if you're reading this, please refer to the list for future gift ideas.  Heehee!
a
a
It was a great birthday!  Thank you to friends and family who greeted me on Facebook.  Big hug to Richard and Aly for making my birthday extra special.
