hey mama!

Today, I celebrate 31 years of existence here on our temporary world we call Earth. Watched Transformers with my darling yesterday and she behaved herself so well, I plan on taking her for another movie perhaps tonight.

Isobel and I will now share our journey of parenthood online via Do check out some previous article 'we' have contributed since Isobel first came into my world.

It seems like only yesterday that I was living in Penampang - feeding our 'pet' pig and getting scolding from my father for taking part in some Acapella all-girl group during highschool.
(daddy wanted me to place more importance in my academics, to which I am grateful for now)
It was just like yesterday that I was feeding my baby brother his milk, and now he is off to study e-business at UMS while I prepare the milk for my own child.

31 years. I see the wrinkles on my face and pigmentation setting in.
But the wrinkles only map out my life journey, so I will hold on to that botox visit.. for now.

5 days ago, the Pink P girls (you know who you are) sprung a nice,impromtu gathering to wine and dine with 18" pizzas and MJ music blaring at the background.
( I will edit our MJ dance video and post it here soon)
Thank you Saz,Dyns, Tia, Aishah and Hani. Thank you for listening and sharing.

In fact, it is a BIG thank you to those who have been a part of my 31 years. Too many to name in a single post, but since my blogging days -- I think I have mentioned 70% of those who have made Daphne the DAPHNE today.

Bitter sweet memories have made me appreciate life and good times.

Here is to another 31 years more of bitter, sweet (but wiser choiced) memories!
