My Belated Birthday Lunch @ TAO!

If you are my all-time-reader I think you probably got bored of reading this, but I must repeat I am really very grateful to have awesome friends around me! 

Although I don't have a boyf, but I am really thankful that God has been treating me well by sending me lots of trustable, helpful, lovely friends. They are here with me not only to gossip or crap with me, but I know that most of them will definitely be there for me to cheer me up when I'm down, help me out when I need, teach me to be smarter when I face difficulty. 

Sometimes you might think that I have many friends with different gang, which are actually the closest or who are the most trustable friend? To be frank, I do have many friends with different gang. Some of them include my family even claims that I am too busy hanging out with friends each time I am back in Penang cause I have too many different gangs. However, I don't rank them, they are all my close friends, I really do treasure each and every of them. Forever always try my best to make my time to meet them if I am free. I them all!

my high school buddy. Babi and Snow White.

Back in December, they insisted to surprise me even my birthday already over for more than 3 months. They had decided to bring me to Tao for lunch buffet. They know me too well, knowing that I yummy food, I am a big eater, never try Tao before and used to keep annoy my snow white to bring me there. They bought me a dress last year but I didn't wear it before till now *opps*. So, bring me to Tao for buffet is definitely a smart choice *thumbs up (y)*

Sadly, the smart me actually spoiled their surprise :/. They forced me to wear dress and told me that I will surely regret if I have a little mommy's cook before I go cause I was negotiating with them that I need to have a little mommy's cook before I go out for lunch or else my mom will kill me. Imma ended up success to guess that they gonna bring me to Tao for my birthday lunch. 

bear with it, the photo was taken after the lunch. oh Fat Fat Fat!

my Snow White

She knows me very very very well. She not only taught me a lot on academic but also general knowledge and life lessons like how to handle things when got into trouble. I really salute how her brain can twist so fast whenever she meets problems. Besides that, I learned to be more alert to my surrounding, got my "stare-back" skill and ability to observe around more*except that when I am blur lar* from her.

Still remember that back in high school, I used to tell her that "I am hungry" almost all the time in class. She ended up prepare extra bread or biscuit for me :D. She was so used to me saying "I am Hungry" till there was once, I didn't annoy her that I was hungry cause I was busy concentrating to complete my homework. She then turned to me and ask "Camy, are you okay today? It's already 9am, why you haven't tell that you are hungry?" *note that my mom used to prepare rice or porridge or oat for me in the morning, those food that I can really feel full, but I still hungry easily*

Babi!!! :D

First time see her in dress besides pinafore, specially for my birthday lunch and to make me wear dress too!!! Awwwwww . Only get close to her during Form 5. The forever kind person but always kind in a wrong way, tsk tskk. Miss the time that I can always kacao and annoy her in class. *Oh babi, i know you will read this, so dont wanna elaborate much about you, or else you syok sendiri :P*

hug hugg although I look like strangling her. :/
