On Turning 30...

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!
