Ever since I have turned 30, I have found a new-found desire to celebrate my birthdays. Who says you can't have your cake and eat it, too? Who says only kids get to have birthday parties, I asked Haresh, who thinks it's childish to celebrate birthdays after the age of 10? We all need an excuse to socialise and invite friends, acquaintances and 'who's that' over once in a while and no time is better than a birthday! As we get older and wiser, we might as well make a big deal out of it.
So, I turned 33 yesterday and decided to celebrate by hosting a party on our rooftop terrace garden. Here's some of the pictures:
The place was lit with candles and against the backdrop of the Monrovia sky line - a very generous word to describe the few odd light bulbs - it was quite cozy and romantic.
We remembered to bring up the cake only until the last few people were there but it was still nice to blow out the candles and cut it. And, now there's more cake for us. Yay!
I also got some nice gifts and it was nice to see all the loot I received.
It was a nice group, with some old friends and some new ones.
I hope the friends who are not on Facebook appreciate me making the effort to put up these pictures on the blog.
