27 is a strange number

In the wake of my 27th birthday, I held a birthday celebration last Saturday night in the company of Knut and some of my closest friends. This was the invitation I made and sent out a week earlier.


With great home-made food, pretty party people, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry playing in the background, a disco ball casting colors on the walls, 27 candles on Knut’s homemade birthday cake, and lovely Louis Vuitton gifts and more, it turned out to be one fine night I will never forget. Now on to the party pics.
























From an earlier post, I got to open my gifts from Knut which included a suit set which I wore to the party, a warming fluffy pillow and a rose quartz stone. I also got amazing gifts from my friends. I am loved! Haha! Vanessa and Neil gave me the LV Damier Graphite 6 Keys Holder, which will go well with my Ieoh. It even came with my initials heatstamped in silver, it’s perfect and I LVoe it! Bianca gave me the anniversary edition LV Paris City Guide with slipcase, something I’ve been meaning to get since it came out. Mark gave me an LV gift certificate which came with this cool picture card I want framed.


Yasuko brought a vase of fresh tulips she styled herself, Keng and Stein gifted me with a Mamma Mia DVD, Lady Gaga CD, and a cruise for 4 to Denmark, Neil and Arild boxed a pair of Bjørn Borg boxers, Grace brought a bottle of red wine, Lucien packed a green laptop case, Magda, Joana, Ioana and Christian got me a teapot with flowering teas and Ioana baked a yummy Chocolate with Chili cake. Vanessa also brought her famous and delicious leche flan.


You could tell at the end of the night I was one beaming birthday boy. :p

Thank you guys for coming to my party. It was fun! And turning 27 didn’t feel so strange anymore.
