I am 21 !!!

Time really flies. I do not feel like I am 21 already. Well, the most important thing is to be young at the heart!

I wish to thank my friends for celebrating for me. I had 3 surprises this year.

On the last night in Bairnsdale, Sally, Gil, Brendan, Yu Wan, Daniel Lee and Lau, Yeu Sheng and Chean Ying made an ice-cream cake! Leo, a 4th year senior was there as well. I am so glad that I have met so many nice people during rural this year. I really enjoyed it so much!

They broke a bowl for the cake!

They are the group of friends who brought about so much laughter during rural placement.

When I came back to Clayton, MISU held a celebration in Rusden Nando's. I was so surprised that Sheryl, Li Ping and Adilah were there as well! We had a sumptuous feast on roast chicken.



It seems like i have a lot of presents this year!

Ryan also gave me some a big surprise by decorating my room and bought me a necklace, a bouquet of pink roses, as well as a nice photo frame!



Besides that, I have also received a lot of birthday wishes from the following friends: Sharon, Ivy, Christina, Lester, Wan Jie, John, Zepeng (surprisingly!), Chew Siang, Yong Wee, Kuan Yuen.

I love my birthday cards from Yu Wan, Li Suan, Daniel Lee, Sally, Gil, Leo and Brendan.

And of course, I want to thank Brendan mummy for the muffin that he baked! And Yu Wan again for the book -- Captivating!

Thank you everyone! I am so touched!
