It took me a while to write another blog for my Akynfullhouse because we’ve been doing loads of changes recently with our website. So much trial and error that needs doing before our site can go live again. Still thankful I got my personal web developer, my husband, who can customise my blog based on my own liking. It is so expensive to get someone to build a website nowadays, isn’t it?
Anyway, my post for today is to share my gratefulness for the blessings I got for my birthday. Yay🙏I’m a year older again and wiser I supposed.
This year, I wanted to keep it intimate and simple with not much social gathering for a party. It was just the three of us enjoying every bit for our moment together. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our special day than to be with the people we truly love.
We went to Leeds days before my actual birthday to process an important appointment and for shopping as my main highlight for the trip. (LOL) I won’t deny my total elation when it comes to shopping.
My boys helped me to choose which purse to buy as a gift for myself. Thankfully, Victoria’s Secret was on sale even before the Black Friday crazy sale has begun. This pink baby is on 30% off. I can’t pass on that! Here she is so pretty and elegant.
I’ve used it already for my pictorial with Mon after enjoying our fish and chips date. 😂Simple dates make me happy all the time.
Another find that could skip my heart beat is buying the Scrabble board game. This is my childhood game with my Mama and I so missed playing this again. Although Mon is not very keen on playing this with me but he got no choice for it needs at least 2 players to play. He’s the only one available to be my opponent for this. 😂”A happy wife is a happy life,”my constant quote reminder to him. 😂
And the third girly stuff in my shopping list are my never ending love for accessories. An outfit couldn’t be completed without a perfect matching accessories to elevate the look, wouldn’t you agree with it pretty Mommas? These five pairs of Lovisa earrings are absolutely gorgeous. I love them. I can use them for my everyday outfit when going out.
My special day won’t be fully celebrated without our family dinner. Went to the Oriental Palace restaurant located in 439 Beverley Rd, Hull HU5 1NR which was introduced to us by Kuya Marcelo. After we went there for the first time, we knew already that we will always be coming back for more eat out together. Their food are all delish and another plus is the affordable price rate.
My Akyn’s favorite House Special Fried Noodles.
Fried Squid Tentacles
Shrimp Beancurd Roll
Fried Vegetable and Pork Buns
Seafood and Tofu Casserole Pot( Prawns, Squid, Fish Balls, Chinese Vegetables and Tofu slow cooked in a casserole pot)
This is my favorite the Foo-Kin Fried Rice (with sauce) Duck, Squid, Prawns, Straw Mushrooms, Babycorn and Mangetout in Oyster Sauce on a bed of Fried Rice.
We went home happy and full. It only goes to show how much we love eating finishing all those dishes with only the three of us. 🤣
I am beyond grateful for everything I am blessed now. No words could describe the happiness I felt. Last year was a blast of surprises. For this year, I am looking forward to celebrate another year of adventure as I age a year older. Let’s also remind ourselves before I end this post with this line,“Age is just a number.” “Let our beauty inside and out defy our age!” Stay pretty Mommas.
Good morning. ❤️
