This is me at 30.

I figured that I should start taking a picture of myself each year on my birthday to see how I age.  I’m curious to see if this will happen to me: http://iamemiko.blogspot.com/2010/09/how-asians-age.html.

Today I celebrated with a not surprise birthday dinner.  A couple of weeks ago, my husband asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday.  I responded with “Dinner at Lento“.  A few days later, my husband and I were at the movie theatre with friends waiting for Skyfall to start.  I leaned over to him and asked if I should invite some of my close friends to dinner. He said “Sure”.  Note: He was on his cell phone playing a game.

I leaned over to Badger and Weez to ask.  They then looked at me funny and told me them being there was to be a surprise….Oops.  My husband thought I was talking about something else…although he was obviously distracted and wasn’t focused on the conversation.

It’s all good though. I had a lovely dinner with my husband, Kampy, Badger, Kim, Andy, Cody, Brian, Sarah, Weez, Ivy and Matt.

I don’t feel older. I feel more…’seasoned’ and ready to conquer the world.
