Yesterday was my first birthday after 30 years old and that makes me 31 years old!
Last year, Li Xiang and I went to Sydney, Australia to celebrate my birthday. This year we stayed in Singapore to save some money as we are going travelling later on in June.
Many of you might not know but my brother’s birthday is 4 days after mine which falls on 28th March and we normally celebrate it together. Because last year my brother was on study exchange in the UK, we didn’t celebrate it with him.
This year, we had our birthday dinner at Pince and Pints which is located at 32-33 Duxton Road Singapore 089496.
Thanks to our parents for the birthday dinner treat!
For my actual day dinner, I spent it with Li Xiang and we have a casual dinner at Mignon’s Steak & Grill which is located at the food area opposite Cold Storage at Takashimaya. Been to Mignon’s Steak & Grill many times because the prices are reasonable and the food is pretty good. I ordered the Fillet Mignon Medium and it cost S$26.90 nett.
Thanks to Li Xiang for the LEGO Hello Hulk Buster Smash present!
Thanks to my brother, Leroy, and Hui Min for two pairs of GV Gold Class movie tickets!
And a big thank you to all of you for the birthday greetings on my Facebook, Skype, Instagram, Whatsapp, Line, Facebook Messenger and SMS! THANK YOU!
RIP Lee Kuan Yew
Lee Kuan Yew is regarded as Singapore’s founding father and unfortunately, he passed away a day before my birthday, on the 23rd March 2015 at 3:18am. He was 91 years old.
I will always remember this phrase from him: “I did what I thought was right, given the circumstances, given my knowledge at the time, given the pressures on me at the time. That’s finished, done. I move forward. You keep on harking back, it’s just wasting time.”

Rest in peace Mr Lee Kuan Yew and thank you for bringing Singapore to where it is today.
