21st Birthday Part III

(I know, you must be thinking, “It’s about time!”)

I actually typed a really long post on this and I accidentally clicked the close button. Well done, Nadine :?

So I met Elisia and she asked me to accompany her to Chinatown to collect something for her sister. I thought, well, I had time to kill so why not?

When we got there, we had to find this building and she went straight into a KTV lounge. I was going, “You’re collecting something here?” But she told me to follow her and follow her I did.

She led me to the very last door and when she opened it, I was greeted with a loud “SURPRISE!” and the pops of party poppers. Yep, the 7ners surprised me.

My surprised look

I must say that I’m not much of a fan of KTVs since people usually go there to sing chinese songs and I don’t listen to them let alone sing them. They do have english songs but the video for the songs are usually not the original music videos but lousy ones showing some blond girl running around the lake surrounded by green, green grass. (Urg)

However, I had fun with the 7ners since most of us sing english songs. And Elisia and Perr sing japanese ones! (We sang YUI’s “LIFE” later on but I’d forgotten most of the lyrics and the lyrics provided on the screen were not romanji!)

Singing to Lene Marlin’s “Sitting Down Here”

Elisia, Perr, Soffie, me and Jo singing along to Spice Girls’ “Wannabe”

I don’t remember what was so funny but it certainly made us laugh our asses off.

Because Jun Wei accidentally leaked out something about that day’s surprise to me, he most certainly got it from the girls. He was sabotaged to sing Britney’s “Baby One More Time” and it was really, really funny when he sang it in a falsetto voice.

Hit Me Baby One More Time!

Not only was the whole thing a surprise, there was also a surprise cake! Totally chocolatey, yummy and soft, I most certainly enjoyed my cake!

Picture of the Moment: That looks good

We had reservations at Kenny Rogers Roasters at Marina Square but since we were running late, (gosh, did we sing that long?) we decided to have Swensen’s at China Point.

I love my friends. And turning 21 is definitely good.


  1. aww thats so sweet of your friends I had a surprise part last year for my birthday too!

    Cute pictures!

  2. Ahhhh! Suprise parties! My favorites. It looks like killer fun, I’ve never done karaoke before, mostly because im kind of scared of the results.

  3. Wow, that is sooo awesome, Nadine! You have AWESOME friends!! Hehe. I can’t wait until I turn 21 in about 6 months… Hehe.

  4. Happy birthday, dear! Sounds like the day was pretty darn awesome.

    Hah, I know what you mean about the lousy music videos! They’re so annoying! It’s always these stupid looking women walking around and stuff. *throws rocks at tv* ;D

  7. Happy belated birthday. Seems like lots of people have there birthdays this time of year. That probably sounds like a silly thing to say because there are probably about 100 people a day who celebrate their birthday but you have no idea how many blogs I’ve been to today that mention a birthday of some sort lol. Anyway many happy returns! xxx

  8. Looks like you had a great time there despite the weird videos (a blonde girl running around does not suit anybody except perhaps the weirdest guy), judging from your photos, that is. Your surprised look was very… surprised and happy. Anyways, happy belated 21st birthday!

  9. Hey! I found your website from Emma’s (allure), and it’s really cute. It looks like you had a lot of fun at your party.

  10. When most girls turn 21 here in the states, they go all out with drinking-to-get-drunk / booty-shaking at clubs / etc, etc….

    It’s nice to see that you’re still oh so sweet! Happy Birthy-Day!

  11. oh wow! that sounds like so much fun!

    yeah.. im not gonna celebrate my 15th b’day either, i don’t see the point.. im just so excited about turning 15!!

    turning 21 … wonder how that would feel. i hope you have a good year and many more birthdays to come.

    best wishes,
    joy =)

  13. Sounds like you had a wicked-awesome twenty first birthday! I haven’t had a party in… ever, but that sounds amazing. Mind you, if it were me.. I wouldn’t of been so happy only because I dislike surprises, and surprise parties.
