25th Birthday – Part 1

Gawd. I turn 25 today. That means I am officially a Christmas Cake! Nonetheless, I had a blast!

The term クリスマス・ケーキ (Kurisumasu Kēki) has also been used to refer to women in a very unflattering way. Young women were expected to be married by the age of 25; just as no one wants a Japanese Christmas cake after 25 December, a woman over 25 was seen as past her sell-by date.

I had my Japanese Oral exam on Saturday, did some shopping after that, and went to ECP for a BBQ. MZ’s my mummy this year, she organised the birthday BBQ for me and tried to pimp me off as well. Haha. I really appreciate her generous gesture, cos I have no time to organise anything at all. It was a small gathering, but I enjoyed it.

14 Nov, Friday

I met Yun and BJ for dinner at Shokudo, Raffles City Shopping Centre. Went in one time with HJM and KawaiiLG, but we didn’t eat anything there, so I thought I’d give it a try. :p We spent time catching up, and am quite glad that Yun’s life has less clutter now. 🙂 And BJ forgot to bring that earring rack she helped me buy (again). Haha.
