It's been just over 3 months since I turn 30. As you may have expected, I wasn't exactly excited about reaching the big 3-0 milestone. However, a month filled with lots of celebration and fun softened the blow. I shared an early birthday get together with my fellow Gemini Dien eating Shabu, sipping on some Tiki-themed beverages and enjoying the company of good friends.
I also had a nice birthday dinner with the a few of the most important ladies in my life - mom, auntie and bestie at Hakkasan.
To top things off, I was lucky enough to spend my 30th birthday in Italy. Since this was my first visit, we traveled around the country visiting numerous cities - Milano, Modena, Reggio Emilia, Firenze, Pisa, Venezia, Genova, Roma and Pompei. Sounds tiring, but it was absolutely amazing - I couldn't have asked for more!
On our way home, we spent a few nights in one of my all-time favorite cities - NY!
Last but not least, after our return, I am now engaged! Time for the madness of wedding planning to begin...
After all this, I must admit that turning 30 wasn't all that bad - actually it was pretty amazing, some of the best moths of my life!
