Sheila gave me Ever So Sweet Midi Dress quite sometime ago but I haven't had the perfect occasion to don on this sweet dress. Took it out to wear on Christine's early surprise birthday celebration at Hyatt!! The dress looked really flattering and after I had it on, I immediately texted Sheila to rave how much I love the dress! Thanks Hollyhoque! :D

Thanks Daddy for taking this shot for me! The parents drove me to The Nail Status first to get some rose petals to throw on the dinner tables. Mabs's role for the day was to take Chris for dinner at Hyatt while we were all ready and waiting for her there. I was there earlier to prepare the deco cause I was the more free apparently haha! :X

And me camwhoring while waiting alone in the room for the rest of them!

Took some shots of everyone while we were waited for Mabs to bring Chris over. Mabs was texting me all the way over from just picking Chris to being at the carpark to the entrance haha! She's one good party surpriser! She initially dated Chris out for high tea so she would not go to work which she initially wanted to. Then, told her that her IPL appointment was delayed so she could only meet her for dinner instead hahaha! So here are shots of everyone on their phones, not communicating....

All seated with Sheila!!

We were saying that Chris would be most surprised to see her husband cause he told her that he would be going for a run and left the house in some casual wear. He had to smuggle a bag of clothes out to change for the dinner so Chris won't suspect!

Hello Zoe,

great post as usual! I so love your posts as they are always so full of life and energy and pretty pictures. I do realize that life has its downs besides its ups and you probably do not laugh all the time, but generally you come across as a rather happy person, and I hope you can maintain that throughout your life!
And great friends are the best anyway. The efforts you girls do for each other are heart-warming.
Oh, and btw - don't bother thinking you are "too old" for blogging. You once wrote something about that. A lot of bloggers, especially from Europe and the US, are older than you, and there are 30+ bloggers also. You don't have especially "young" content, you talk about work, going out, nails, hair, etc. - that is interesting for ladies of all ages, and your readers "age" with you anyway :D
I hope you will blog for many more years to come!
Also, as I want to visit Singapore latest next year, your posts are a great way getting to know the city and where to go for shoppings and food :D
