LL Note: Birthday Weekend

** Going to Canberra tomorrow! **

Despite being gifted two pretty shirts from my parents and birthday cards from them, my sister and her boyfriend and my grandma on mum’s side- my main birthday present from the family is a mini trip to our Nations capital this weekend. Originally it was going to be a mother/daughter bonding until dad wanted to come with, he has a thing of being left alone.

We are driving there in the afternoon and doing a stopover to see one of mum’s work friends at their place halfway to Canberra. We will be staying at the Park Hyatt near Parliament house and I will have my own room. Ange was kind enough to pay for one of the two nights we are staying at the hotel. Last time I was in Canberra I was perhaps only 12 years old and before that I was only 5 so cannot wait to see how much has changed since that time.

I need this mini break just for time of reflection and offline from the virtual worlds though I will miss my gaming 😛 See you all when I come back on Sunday afternoon! And back to work on Monday morning @.@

Mood: Grateful

Today is my last day of work before I am given six days off and will be going to Canberra, it is also two days before I am turning 28 in reality, 2 years off 30! I am feeling my age already >.< But! What I didn’t know is that my two duty managers along with the new front office manager were secretly planning both a hand-made card and custom birthday cake for me 😀

I couldn’t believe it, they had it signed by various colleagues in the different departments, I also got a couple of my regular guests who I talk to all the time to sign it too. Needless to say though today is not my birthday I am feeling very spoiled and special from my front office. I mean c’mon one of the girls in our team made the card! Thank you Lyca and Amy ❤

Diary: Birthday Weekend

Starting from the 9th February next month I will be having 6 days off, apparently to our General manager he wants all of us to use up our day-in-lieu having worked so many from Christmas to Australia Day. Because I have so many days off and it happens around my 28th birthday time period, mum has decided we should have a mother-daughter mini trip to our Nations capital.

It does sound like quite a good trip to Canberra because last time we were down there I was 14 and it was a stopover on the way down to the Snowy alps. The city itself has various amazing places to go see and not just the government being located there. The only downside of this is that observatory night viewing does not start until March bugger!

We are still going to drive there, it will be a nice break before everything gets all busy again at work, though starting yesterday all the regulars returned and conferences have started up once more. So it begins 😛

Bdays: Mama’s 90th!

On Friday 15th August, my grandma on dad’s side; the Matriarch of the Moscoso clan turned 90! She is literally 10 years away from being 100 :O A mother, grandma, great-grandma of many talents, compassion and love for her ever growing family. She has been by all our sides and given us all her special touch and devotion plus experience with the world. Despite her arthritis in her hip on her birthday she didn’t let it spoil her night yesterday with the family visiting her apartment. Because of my 9 days off I was quite fortunate to go there myself and spend time with the relatives.

Happy birthday again Mama <33

Second Life: 1 Years Old

This should have been done on the 16th July when my Rez day actually occurred but oh well I’m doing it right now. I had PM shift on that day and when I got home Hammer had told me of a masquerade sim to take pretty pictures at but I had to dress up. I had done my shopping at the Secret Affair before work and got to wear Aisling‘s Rose Valentine dress and a pink rose eyepatch from Alchemy‘s gacha at the event.

Hammer teleported to a sim I did not recognise and what a major surprise I got when I accepted it. There was at least 25 people in the outdoor area, the room was grey but loaded to be pink/black and theme of Alice in Wonderland!  My big sister Lexy hosted it in her apartment and organised a surprise Rez day for me between her and Hammer.

It was mostly Hammer’s idea and he managed to send out invitations to the friends that I knew to be dressed up in masquerade costumes and be at Lexy’s place at this hour. He had organised it for a month now and he and Lexy were the dj at my party. Needless to say I was overwhelmed and incredibly touched by what the two did for me.

Never in my SLife or reality did I have a surprise birthday thrown for me and the amount of people who showed up or even sent messages to be passed on show how much they truly cared for me.

The turn out of friends despite the time zone difference was amazing and I thank every single person who showed up, for the 2hrs that the party lasted I have never been so much blessed and fortunate to have all of them in my Second Life.

Bdays: Daddy’s 6.6

Though I could not go to the joint birthday party of my cousin Justine and my dad’s last night, I have today off so it means I can still go out with the fam and have a yummy dinner at our usual spot (the RSL lol). But this post is just a simple greeting to the first King in my love, the man who never ceases to love me, encourage and give ideas for his eldest daughter. I love you so much daddy, hope you enjoying this relaxing Sunday birthday ❤

Diary: 26 Years

My birthday has arrived and I’ll be putting in two posts one for the real world and one for the virtual world because in both I have been treated like a spoiled princess and forever thankful to the friends and family who have shown how much they care and even remember my birthday! Today I have officially turned 26 and quite lucky to have today off. I’m back to work tomorrow morning but I am revelling in these final 30mins before heading to my bed and trying to sleep.

Mum’s side of the family including my cousin who I haven’t seen since her wedding last year in December took me out to the local RSL club where we all had together before returning home and I got a chocolate mud birthday cake from French kitchen. I also got my birthday present from my younger sister and her boyfriend a pair of pink Nike shoes and a DVD of fitness by Mel B.

Tonight after a simply fantastic time with my international friends on Second Life, I went out for a much smaller dinner with my bestie Mei/Lana, that girl spoiled me with a white musk shower gel and pretty Aquarian necklace from Peep Toe :3 I’m still quite full from dinner and I hope it digests soon!
