I’d like to thank everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes and comments :) I had an awesome birthday! We’ll still be celebrating my birthday with friends today and tomorrow. Here’s a recap of my birthday on Friday, April 20, 2007.
Like any other day…I woke up, took a shower, and got ready for work :) I had yogurt w/ blueberries and granola for breakfast…yum!
continued… Whenever we have a birthday at work, we usually have a little celebration before closing; along with the birthday persons’s favorite cake and a card full of money (Each person in the company contributes however much they’d like for the card). For my birthday, I was quite surprised when they presented me with a wonderful bottle of Avalon 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon (which is amazing btw), my favorite brownies from Uncle Biffs (I don’t like cake, I prefer yummy chewy brownies), Mimosas (Champagne & Orange Juice), a card full of $$$ (All I can say is…WOW).
Another great surprise was a gift from some co-workers…a beautiful Hamilton timepiece! I’ve been thinking of getting one for quite some time now and it was great that they had remembered. I’m guessing Pooh had given them some hints :) It’s pretty expensive (original retail: $1,045.00) so I’m very very very happy! I absolutely love it! Of course…nothing beats my gift from Pooh.
After work, Pooh and I headed to Bondi in downtown to meet with my sister and some friends for drinks and a bite to eat! (see Birthday Recap pt.2)
I had an awesome birthday! Thanks so much for the great comments and birthday wishes! I have so much to share but am much too tired…it’s been a long day. I’ll post as soon as I can…theres lots and lots and lots of pictures :)
Pooh and I went to Cafe One Three for dessert and wine after work. It’s a new place that is located on Park Blvd where Indulgence, a low-carb/sugar-free bakery and cafe, used to be. Pooh and I used to go to Indulgence for their sugar-free dark chocolate truffles and their low-carb cheesecake. They were AWESOME! The owner used to call us his cheesecake boys because we would always go there just for cheesecake…and well, being 2 asian “thuggy” gay boys wearing baggy hip-hop gear ordering low-carb cheesecake, we weren’t that hard to forget. Anyway, we were quite surprised when we discovered that our favorite charming little low carb bakery was no longer there and that it had been remodeled into a stylishly modern restaurant/cafe. I will definitely miss the old Indulgence though!
I took some pics with my phone but the lighting was very dim…and the ambiance was much too nice to disrupt with a flash. Although, popping out a camera to take pictures of food is quite strange no? Perhaps we’ll sneak some better quality images in daylight…so we definitely must go there again!
I had an Eclectic White Wine – Dancing Coyote Cha Cha I honestly can’t remember what it was called…but it was a cholate khalua type cake…very yummy! Oreo Cookie Cheese Cake….simply scrumptulescent!
So my birthday is coming up! It’s just around the corner, this friday, April 20th! I’m actually not too excited because I don’t have anything planned and I’m not sure what we’ll be doing to celebrate. I do know that we’ll be eating out at a nice restaurant though, cuz y’know, I love fine dining and my Pooh spoils me :) Pooh had set up a huge birthday party for me last year – I’ll post pics of it soon! This year, I’m thinking I’d rather not do something so high maintenance. It was CRAAAZY last year! It was the biggest birthday party I ever had. Unfortunately, things are a bit different this year and I haven’t seen most of my friends in a while since work has been consuming most of my time. I don’t know how things will go this year…I guess we’ll just have to wait and see :)
I was browsing through flickr and I thought I’d share this with everyone. Although the image is quite provacative, my eyes are fixed on the top’s handsome face – well of course it slowly moves to the right along his smooth sexy back, but it whips back to his face. :)
We went to do some more shopping :) Yesterday we shopped for clothing, today we shopped for electronics! We went to CompUSA and found out that all of the CompUSA stores in southern California were closing down and are clearing everything out with a huge sale!
Unfortunately, the store was already cleared out and there was basically nothing left. We managed to pick up a new Griffin iTrip FM tuner for Pooh’s iPod and a 1GB M2 Memory Stick Micro for my K800i. continued… We had lunch at The Mission Old Town Liquor & Deli
Our lunch at work is catered by several different restaurants (on rotation) and The Mission is one of them. Don’t let the liquor store entrance fool you. This deceptively small and simple deli has a lot to offer! I’m not really into sandwiches but this place definitely won me over. Pooh and I both had a Mission Sandwich (Turkey, Bacon, Avocado, Lettuce, Tomato, Mayo, Onions, and Mustard on toasted Sourdough bread) and a side of Greek Salad (Goat cheese, Cucumbers, Tomato, Bell Peppers, Onions, and Olives with a refreshing vinaigrette dressing). It was a wonderful and scrumptious lunch!
After lunch we went to GNC for some Whey Protein and Nourish Skin Vitamin E Oil so we can pump iron and maintain beautifully soft skin!
For Dinner, Pooh cooked steak! For those of you that have been reading my blog for quite a while, you should know that I was semi-vegetarian and didn’t eat red meat. ::insert gasps here:: I couldn’t help it! A couple days ago, after I had recovered from my fever, we were at a dinner party and it was flaunting it’s juicy meatiness in my face. I had been starving my fever for 3 days and my craving for meat was unbearable. Since then I have been eating meat like crazy! Anyway, lately there’s been some days that I don’t eat meat and then there’s some days that I do. I hope to go back to my life without red-meat soon. Like I said, it’s a decision that I just wanted to do for myself.
Pooh and I also picked up a nice LED night light thing. I think it’s pretty cool. It changes colors randomly and can be set at different speeds. It’s puuuurrrty :)
Hush and Listen is a blog that I’ve been reading for quite some time now. The author is passionate, deep, and poetic. I love poetry, so I’m drawn to his lugubrious yet beautiful prose. His written imagery juxtaposed with intriguing visuals captivate me.

Surprisingly, I was nominated for his monthly G*Spot Weblog Award for the month of April. I am quite flattered and am very happy to be nominated. If you’d like to vote for me you can visit his blog and vote for me on the right hand side of his page :) Normally I wouldn’t care about the results because I usually don’t ever win anything, but my birthday is coming up and it’d be pretty nice! haha :)
I used to wear Candies, then switched to Curve, and then discovered the invitingly seductive aroma that is Dolce & Gabana. It has a sexy and squeet bouquet, but still embodies a masculine and alluring scent. A friend of mine once told me, although she was drunk at the time, it smells like sex in a bottle. :) So, I guess I smell like sex! (the sweet passionate sexy kind, not the rough sweaty hardcore kind)
Pooh smells like Issey Miyaki!
However, he’s running out and will need to buy some more as well. His scent carries a luscious sweet citrus and spice, complimented with soft hints of wood and amber tones. It’s both masculine yet refreshingly aquatic. It’s an ambrosial aroma that gets me weak in the knees each time I get close to him. I love it!
