Erm... so this is my face. This was intended to be an outfit post. However, my sometime photographer allowed her maternal instinct to take over and decided that the lighting was perfectly flattering to capture how her 'baby's all grown up'.
So I bought myself a birthday present. No, that sounds sad. I 'invested' in a new DSLR camera, obviously for the, ahem, benefit of the blog and my readers. Anyways, it does this really snazzy thing where it takes really amazing quality photos. I swear I'm not a narcissist when I spend several minutes starting at various photos of myself marvelling at the difference a good camera makes.
I will inevitably receive questions so, for those interested, it's a Sony Alpha 5000. This further increases my notoriety as the traitor who first snubbed the Samsung Galaxy II for the iPhone and have now parred Samsung for a second time for their arch enemies. Forget academics and musical prowess, these are the true pressure of being Asian. How terribly tragic.
The second full day spent in Hawaii was my 19th birthday. Surprisingly, I did not wake up on my birthday overcome with childlike glee as I did for the preceding 18 years. Instead, I was up at around 2 in the morning (still running on British time) and spent the opening hours of my birthday thinking about the past year and all that has happened.
A fly on the wall must have thought I was an emotional wreck due to my outburst of laughter and tears in response to the overwhelming amount of just wonderful birthday messages from my closest friends. I freaked Hannah out when I openly cried watching the birthday video she and her boyfriend sent me. Now that it seems I am over my 'dance around me and make me feel like a princess all day' approach to birthdays and all I care about is spending the day with the people I care for and love rather than attention and presents, perhaps I have now reached some semblance of maturity.
Ha, how I like to lie to myself. I still want presents. And I remain reigning birthday queen.
