My Surprise 30th Birthday Party

As you probably know by now it was my 30th birthday last Friday on the 21st March 2008. You can see my pressies here.

On Friday itself I thought I was just going to have a quiet dinner and hide away from the fact I am getting old..I thought something was up, but I wasn’t sure what it was, where it was..or quite how many people were involved!

My mom let slip ‘party’ a couple of times, but I thought she was just talking generally..or being crazy haha.

I was led to Izzi Uptown and greeted by an overwhelming number of people (no I wasn’t about to cry!). Apparently the original venue was Izzi KL, but due to the F1 parties most of the roads in KL were closed.

There was quite a number of people there when I arrived.


Lots of friends I haven’t seen for quite a while.


And my bro with the same birthday Terence G.


KY was there with his new Lumix snapping away.

    Sorry I couldnt make it, gf was sick 😐

    But i’m sure you enjoyed yourself that evening 😀

    ST’s mothers question was, ‘Is that muff diver really bare/bear?’ 🙂

    Look, my one and only true love [other than Lainie of course] turned up, that person being – Suanie, Carol Sotong, Rachel, Kim, Fire Angel, and Wen. Of course, I can make room for Cass and the other hot girls if I ever meet them. 🙂

    I wonder if I should Hire Kim Komm to PR me a Girlfriend. She just has to say I am tall, good looking, intelligent and muscular … but in such a way as to not be lying. 🙂

    suanie: “What is Muff Diving?!”

    boonsky: Haha thanks man, have to agree with you.

    pinkpau: No la!
