Went out yesterday for lunch with Mom and dinner with Jo. This is also the first year in a while that I didn’t put up any wish list, can’t remember if I had one for last Christmas. Anyway had a red packet from Mom, spent it on cab for lunch because I was late, a haircut and a new pillow. Felt terrific after the hair cut and the new pillow is nice!
Facebook has created this annual phenomenon of people dropping you a message once it’s your birthday. For me, it started once the clock hits twelve and it got a little crazy when the phone started getting notifications while I was trying to do other stuff. Anyway, it’s still nice for folks who I’ve not really kept in contact with to drop a message; I tried my best to reply with a personalised message for each them.
Somehow, I’m incapable of keeping too many relationships in my life. People come and go and I accept that as a fact of life. I can only keep a small group of friends and I really appreciate them for being there. It’s interesting how some of the relationships sometime just develop differently from where it was original formed. Just like how I mentioned before, friendships can only grow by taking them away from their original context.

Thank you so much! For the messages and calls so late at night and so early in the morning.
You make a difference to my life and today started off good because of you! (It got me away from the lonely webcast watching.)
Love ya all and meet up soon.
So here are 2-month late pictures of the quiet birthday affair.
Did a little template hack to make the new gallery layout work with Lightview (a variant of Lightbox). Everything looks cool now. Well except when viewing archive by category, the gallery posts look a little ekky.
In case anyone is having issues with WP2.5’s latest upload feature, there’s a very clear and concise visual solution here.
