Happy New Year 2015 And Happy Burstday To Me!

My birthday is just 3 days away from New Year's day.
With Christmas, New Year and my birthday celebrations happening concurrently one after another, I'm always the busiest during this period; busy celebrating lah~

I'm so fortunate that I've celebrated a few unique, special and fun birthdays!
28th at Sentosa and Home 
This year's at NSRCC Changi.

To all my family and friends who came down especially for my birthday slumber party this year, thank you for making this celebration a success. It was so entertaining.

Beautiful people in the house, meet them all!
Actually, there's only 90% of the guests in this photo, some of them left earlier because my party started too late awwwww, I really wanted them to stay until the very end! 

So sorry. :(

It's the 2nd consecutive year I ordered this birthday cake because it's just too yummy.
Chocolate fudge cake rom Patissier, slurps~

It was a slumber-themed party so everyone had to come in their nighties and we had cup noodles for dinner!

What's a party without music and games?
I invited some of my very good friends to perform songs for us. 
Thank you Ben, Yiyang, Shan Jie, Morgan, Jona, Silver, Fenny, and Yongwei for the love!

Hmmm... I should have an animal party instead.
They are so adorable!
I've got Stitch (STITCHIE!!!), a lion, a unicorn and a penguin in the house that night.

Happy Birthday to all January babies in the house!

2014 has been the most awesome year ever.
Smooth-sailing, filled with Love, Peace, Happiness and Full of surprises!

Here are some of my happiest moments in 2014:

I so loveh Staycations and Travels!

Managed to travel to Taiwan and HongKong this year.
Stayed at DoubleTree and Crowne Plaza Hotel.

Taiwan 2014 at Rainbow Village

Hong Kong 2014
Fulfilled my Disneyland trip and OneFirst surprised me with a wedding proposal with my favourite flowers and witness by my BFF!!!!!!


I was flushed and overwhelmed with job opportunities that were related to what I really want to do. 
I befriended this enormous group of happy friends who fully supported and helped me through my work to make this life journey smooth-sailing. 

I would want 2014 to last forever, I really do.
Then again, I know this abundance of goodness will continue into 2015!

The universe is so kind to me.
I am grateful, so so grateful and ultimately grateful.
Blessed be, Universe.

With all the goodness overwhelming, I welcomed 2015 with open arms.

Instead of fulfilling my 48KG New Year resolution, I gained 6KG.
I'm an official 56KG now OH NO!
Guess I'm too Xing Fu, heh-heh.

But my mama she told me don't worry about a thing~

Mama is wrong. I AM WORRIED.
This weight-maintaining issue is extremely necessary in 2015 because I'd want to fit perfectly in my wedding gown, not let it fit me in 2016. ;p

Hence this is gonna be my Number 1 resolution for the new year!

Mint's New Year Resolutions 2014

1.Get my driving license.
2. Learn and Play the Ukulele AS WELL AS the keyboard smoothly.
3. Start my teeth straightening and whitening treatments.

No. 7 is way better than I had aimed for because TWO of my original compositions will be released in an album at the end of Jan 2015, wohooo!!!

I know I know, Number One appeared in my new year resolutions every year but I never got that fulfilled.

How my eyes glowed when I saw this deal!

For those who haven't been catching up, I've booked a 3D2N staycation at Crowne Plaza Hotel back in July to celebrate Colin's Birthday.

We enjoyed it so much we'd want to stay there forever!

5 reasons why I absolutely love Crowne Plaza
1. Peaceful and totally undisturbed despite being next to the busy airport.
2. Excellent hotel service!
3. Superb Chocolate Dessert!
4. Beautiful Pool facing the iconic Changi Airport Controlling Tower.
5. Clean & green.
6. The retail shops at Changi Airport offers great discounts (cheaper than town somemore), 24-hour eating outlets, many things to shop and see!
7. Looks ATAS but the pricing is actually very affordable and comparable to hotel rates in town.

I just gave 2 bonus reasons because I love this place too much.
Which explains why when I was invited to host for the countdown party I couldn't sleep for the next 2 days.
