It's My Birthday!12:23:00 AM
Okay not really, it was yesterday -___-.
I did wanted to blog yesterday but since my parents are back in Banjarmasin to attend a relative's wedding, Little O is sleeping in our room (yes, he's 9 and still co-sleep. Whatever) i have to make sure all lights are out and noises on the minimum since 9.30 (mostly at 9 but we got home a bit late from dinner yesterday) coz he finds it hard to fall asleep-inherited it from me for sure (coz the daddy snores as soon as his head touches the pillow WTF). The whole relaxed, quiet atmosphere and the thunderstorm outside... It just made me feel super lazy -___-. Ended up spending my night watching horror movies online #sotypical.
But anyhoo-i celebrate my bday all month long anyway (i love love love October, and this year we're doing something really special-not exactly on Halloween but totally Halloween related. Something i've never really done in my whole entire 33 years of life. How sad. I'm all #YOLO this year. Maybe it's mid-life crisis) so... Whatever, it's my birth... MONTH! LOLOLOL.
And what's best to let me enjoy my birth month to the fullest than to let me display a huge ass selfie as the first pic?
|Yep. Decorated it with "Birthday Girl" some more. No shame. And yeap, that's my birthday makeup, which i did put some effort in. I had to coz i'm endorsing the lipstick, but that's not the point :p|
|White knitted top : Online|
Belt : Old, can't remember
Skirt : N.Y.L.A
Heels : Rubi
Bag : Michael Kors
I made hunny took multiple pics of me everywhere coz i clearly wanted a birthday OOTD pic and for once he couldn't be upset with me coz it was my bday MUAHAHAHAHA. Even when i kept on complaining about how bad the pics he took were. I could see him sighing and holding in his annoyance, so much that he was like... so gleeful and said "It's no longer your bday" when the clock struck 12. WTF. I guess i became extra demanding during my Bday? Only once a year mah..
Anyway, it's customary for me to want to enjoy my bday as a special day for the last couple of years. As in i want to spend it doing things i love (bdays used to mean expensive dinner when i was younger, and that's it. What's so special about that, i ask you-rather than making the wallet cry?). Thing is, what i love... they are quite mundane hahahaha. It's movie and shopping (and traveling-but this one cannot be done on the exact day), basically what we do a few times a week anyway so i dunno if it was any more special or not. Oh wait, i dressed up, and took an hour to do my makeup. So yes, more special for sure :p.
|We went to watch Deepwater Horizon. Which make me cry until my falsies almost fell off WTF. Had to rush home (we're picking up Little O) and applied some more glue (i forgot to stick one on my purse. So bad)|
|Selfie in the cinema, which hunny would normally be so annoyed if i try to do on a normal day hahaha|
He also dragged me to pick my bday gift before the show (i'll show you later) which means i didn't have time to shop -__-. He also became a bit annoying at some point that i had to remind him that it's my bday, i'd rather not get a pressie and ask him to not annoy me for one day as a pressie instead -___-. God, why am i married to such an annoying guy?
Like i said, i really wanted to shop *it's an addiction, what can i say*, to spoil myself on my bday (as in i don't spoil myself on a daily basis...) and i had some tops which i wanted for layering at Magnolia (hands down my fave store for affordable outfit. They've revamped the collection and you actually have to snatch things FTL nowadays because they're so good that they sold out super fast).
|Of course, i ended up with more items.... But that's to be expected, don't you think?|
After that, we rushed home to pick Little O up for dinner. I actually won a (dinner voucher for two) a photo contest from Bumi Surabaya City Resort on Independence Day and hunny suggested to use it on my bday, that's a great idea! LOL.
Coz it ended up being a real special dinner. We used to go to Cascades restaurant every Valentine's Day for 5 years or so while we were dating-then we got married and i got stingier WTF. Thing is, i've never been much of a foodie (obviously i love food, or else i wouldn't be so round. But i like... Very predictable and mostly affordable food hahahah), i just don't see the point of spending a fortune on food. I'd rather spend the money for pretty things... Hunny on the other hand... Is a polar opposite. So yeah, i compromise of course, but most of the time i prefer to go for mid-priced dinners.Most pictures taken in Cascades turned out super blurry and foggy, no idea why. I guess it's the lighting and all *sigh*.
|There were only another table occupied while we were there|
|Asked hunny to snap some pics around the pool coz it's still my bday, he can't complain, why not milk it|
|Bring out the Resting Bitch Face #woohoo|
|Hunny was terribly excited for his hot stone steak|
|The thick, juicy, yummy tenderloin steak|
|LOL, yes we're the annoying couple who takes pics of our meal|
|Thick cubes of yummy meat, *drool*... Seriously, i am such a meat lover that i am drooling looking at the pic..|
|What really goes on : i squeal and refuse to cut my meat coz the oil splatter felt like thousands of ants biting my fingers so hunny had to cut them all for me. This is a posed pic for Instagram, obviously|
I personally wouldn't like, recommend Cascades restaurant for daily dinner or whatever since it's quite pricey (if you come for a good steak, be prepared to spend at least 1mill for two) but for special celebration-it's highly recommended. Or if you're a fanatic steak fan. Wear airy clothing (coz honestly, outdoor restaurants in hot, humid Surabaya is not really ideal to dress up in), slap on some mosquito repellant and you're good to go hahaha.
Like a boring 33 year old parent with a 9 year old son who has to go to school the next day, we went straight home and spend the rest of my bday being comfortable in our room. Have i ever told you how much i love my room? LOL.
And before i go, here's a pic of what he got me :
This month is going so well already for me. I have a thick wad of vouchers (i'm actually happy hunny's Samsung Galaxy Note 7 PO's been cancelled HAHAHAHAHA, much to his annoyance) to spend, my other baby (Surabaya Beauty Blogger) is starting to take off, i have booked our tickets for latter this month... And i have some budget to buy myself bday pressies (actually i'd just shop nonstop the whole month and call them all pressies for myself, that's what i do every year T.T). What more can i possibly ask for?
I hope your October's starting off as strong as mine!
