28th

I turned 28 last weekend with the most unique of all celebrations.
Starting from Thursday all the way til Monday,
things were certainly...different this year.

Like..have I mentioned that I suspect I am suffering from late puberty
and am now only starting to fangirl over Kpop boys and their songs?
I skipped this whole idol thing when I was in my teens
and look what happened.
Now that I am old and lumpy, I am starting to gush about some random guy
in a far away country who doesn't even speak my language.
In any case, I happen to like Donghae from Suju and..
i THINK i might have overdone my fangirling for him cos,
I am not kidding when I said I had a Donghae-themed birthday this year.

It started when the girls sprang a surprise at (appropriately) a Korean BBQ restaurant
when I thought everyone was going to be late,
and I was about to die from hunger.
So imagine my shock when I entered the place and they burst into song,
and I thought I could die.
If that wasn't bad enough, I got closer to the table and found..


THIS staring at me.
I couldn't stop laughing for 10 mins I tell you.
Donghae-themed cake toppers done by Sharms with pretty scallop edges even.
I AM SO TOUCHED.
Especially since she had to search for all his images
and she doesn't even like him. HAHA.

Then it got funnier when we were preparing to take photos
and she kept yelling,
"grab donghae! grab donghae!"
I was like,
"WHERE???"


Oh. There.
She made a Donghae balloon for me.
It gets even more embarrassing cos she actually photoshopped a couple pic of
my head on top of some model in a photoshoot with him.
I am not even showing that to the world because..I just...can't.


with partner #1 in crime, Ber,
who claimed she almost died driving with Donghae's head floating next to her.


and #2 & #3 "not so shou friends" who did all sorts of mortifying things
they probably still regret til this day.
(that said, our karaoke song&dance is indeed a classic, haha)


last but not least..my beloved partner!!
Am super duper touched that you did so much for me
and I guess you are right, people DO express their love in different ways :)
Basically, the best analogy for our friendship is this..
I am like an affection starved puppy begging for love
and Sharms is the cool cat that barely blinks.
But we do get along, and we get along fabulously well :)
You can kill me but..LOVE YA BABE!!!!


here was what I wore for my bday party number 1
and am loving how poufy the skirt is for this dress :)


plus a hastily taken pic of our dinner which was delicious
(do check out Togi at 111 Somerset for good Korean food!)

Then, met up with some of the girls the next day for a short dinner.
I wasn't expecting anything but..


hello Donghae Cake #2.
Lynn stressed that it is different because instead of many small ones,
she specifically found one big, HALF NAKED one.
with the emphasis on half naked.
Seriously, I don't know what my friends were thinking.

Thankfully, the birthday weekend came about
and YC isn't that inclined to indulge my fangirl-ism
so we had a peaceful dinner with the family at Buffet Town at Raffles City.
I consider the spread pretty good and extensive,
plus its rather affordable :)


I have a separate wardrobe for buffet outfits. Haha.


sadly, only managed one photo with my sis,
my family picture was ruined by my over enthusiastic brother in law
and his experiments with multiple shots.


a rare photo op with YC :)

On my actual day, we went for dimsum at Taste Paradise
and a surprise staycation, yaaaaay!
FOOD SPAM AHEAD.










dessert came in a bowl with dry ice spluttering out from the sides
and I kept feeling like my bowl was going to take off. Haha.


arrived at W Hotel and it was totally gorgeous.




sneak peek of an upcoming floral tie back dress. :)


and I love how the breakfast juices come in individual bottles :)

and when I came back home on Monday night,
Mella called to say she had to send me a special delivery.


LOOK WHAT HAPPENED.
I am not kidding, she made a (almost) lifesize Donghae standee for me.
He is just randomly standing in my study room now,
scaring YC with his silhouette everytime he walks past the room. HAHAHAHAHA.
Heck, sometimes he scares me even cos I keep seeing someone
out of the corner of my eyes.
The things people do for their BFF.
It's okay babe, your birthday is coming soon and I will return the favour. Heh.

At the end of the whole birthday weekend,
all I can deduce is..
I might have been gone overboard with my fangirling,
and everyone is simply indulging me
BUT...the moral is..
MY FRIENDS MUST REALLY LOVE ME.

I really really think so. Ha.

much love,
Kelly

Hi where did your friend get the life size standee of donghae from?

Daphne Teo said...

Please manufacture cotton basic tees in v neck & round neck that's a bit lower!

Anonymous said...

Please manufacture basic tees in normal cotton material! (: V neck & scooped round neck so they aren't so high.

Can mira be worn with a normal bra? Btw is the blue closer to lialic? Thanks

missypixie said...

anon: she got a printer to print it for her, haha.

Daphne: you mean scoop neck instead of round neck?

anon: i would advise a strapless bra because the strap placement of normal bras differs so some might be set further apart! hmm, not lilac, more like powder blue?

missypixie said...
