Turning Thirty: Here’s to Many More Makan Sessions Together!

Today’s a special day and, I’d like to start it by making a simple dedication to my dear friends and makan kaki (fellow foodies). It’s been wonderful having the pleasure of your company all these years.

Turning Thirty Hipstamatic Montage_1.jpg

I was walking, was living
My melody was acapella
There’s a beat I was missing
No tune, or a scale, I could play

The sound in the distance
No orchestra playing together
Like a boat out to sea,
The silence was too deafening!

Before you,
My whole life was acapella!
Now a symphony’s the only song to sing
Before you,
My whole life was acapella!
Now a symphony’s the only song to sing

- excerpted from Kelis’s newest single, Acapella, from the album Fleshtone.

    happy birthday, best wishes for your 30s, and welcome to the club! :D
    i miss my 20s sometimes (especially since it seemed easier to take bigger risks back then), but at least we can breathe a sigh of relief that we're still not in our 40s, rite :D

    Happy birthday, qwazy monkey! let me begin by telling you that 30s is great! of course, we get tired more easily lah (hehe), but with age come wisdom and choice. so, it all equates to a wiser and more productive life. here's wishing you a great birthday bash and many more great makans to come! ;D

    Oh a little late but happy birthday!!!

    So very well said about foodie pleasures – it's more about who we eat with than what we eat!

    And Kenny is right! Things get better after 30!
