Dee - My angel
You still manage to keep my head screwed on

I am celebrating...

I am starting to celebrate my anniversary

No I am not married

But I have decided that this is the anniversary of my 25th birthday

And I will be out every night for the next few nights

So maybe some people will call it a mid-life crisis

I have decided to call it the anniversary of my 25th birthday

And thats the way it will be

C'est la vie!

Its my Birthday and I'll cry if I want to...

My birthday is coming up

And as always I go through what we call PBS

Pre-Birthday Syndrome

Thats when I need to be reminded that I'm not old, I'm not wrinkly, I'm not fat (well I can't say that anymore)...well you get the picture

So I basically am a little attention defecit right now...

Leave me comments with your idea for the ideal birthday gift for me - it'll make me chuckle - hopfully...

PSST - How many of you know / remember when my birthday is?

Two hours and forty minutes

Thats how long I laughed for last night

It felt like a minute and yet an eternity

And the only reason I know the exact timing was because thats when I put the phone down

An expensive laugh considering it was hundreds of thousands of miles away

And I woke up this morning feeling good


I should do this more often

But then maybe the novelty will wear off


I should laugh like this more often

Each day I live
I want to be
A day to give
The best of me
I'm only one
But not alone
My finest day
Is yet unknown

Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
~ Whitney Houston

This is probably my first memory of the word 'Moment'
Or maybe its the only lingering memory I have of the word

I never gave the word 'Moment' much thought
I never really felt the need to...

But the last 48 hours have made me realise the importance of a moment and what it does to you

Picture this
One moment 2 months ago I hired a girl
One memorable moment we became friends over sushi and a bottle of red
One moment I convinced her to come party with me in another city over the weekend gone by
One memorable moment she called me to say she was on her way (I left earlier that morning)
That same moment I was watching CNN
The same moment breaking news informed me of a Kenyan Airways flight that went missing

MISSING? How does a plane go missing? I can't fathom that

I didn't give it much thought but the lingering irritation of the plane missing didn't leave my mindspace

A few hours later...
She shows up and we pop open a bottle of beer
I run out to run some errands
I wonder about the missing aircraft and wonder if its found and decide not to think about it
I get driven around the city running my errands, looking at all the new construction and think to myself how much the city has changed

My phone rings
I answer it

"Come back to the hotel, there's a problem" says another friend

I coaxed the friend for the information and there it was reeling in my head like a ton of bricks had hit me hard

"Her cousin was on the Kenyan airways flight that went missing"





Its been 48 hours and the moment finally came when they found the wreckage and the moment of the call
"They're pulling out bodies...The hope is over"


One moment alive, the next dead

Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel I will feel eternity

Happy 70th birthday Papa

Papa, Mama, Noojes and the new family member - The OSIM chair

Yes I have been in time out zone for various reasons

Some I'd rather not talk about

Others include, being in Goa for over a week on work

I'm not bullshi**ing you, I was honestly working my butt off in Goa

The good part if the even golden tan that I am absolutely in love with

My brother and his family were in town for a few days which was absolutely fabulous

And Mr Italy landed into town as well (for those of you who don't know who he is, well...)

I have finally reached the conclusion that I am amongst the luckiest women in the world

In a span of 12 hours I became the proud receiver of gifts

And not just any old gifts

A Cartier French Tank watch


A Louis Vuitton Handbag


I am loved!
