I planned his bday for a year. Yes, i am tt kiasu. Hahaha. I just wrote down what to do on his bday, location, food & etc. But when it came down to executing his bday party plans, everything i hope wld happen changed. Everything i planned for changed. I cut down the amt of ppl i invited to his bday. I changed the location from a hotel to.. Well, some place quiet ard my estate. Food & drinks were changed to me cooking instead of hiring a caterer. Decors were eliminated too.
Why did i downscale his bday party? Because i learnt from the past 4 years, tt R does not appreciate such extravagant parties. Even if u tell him how much effort was put into it(i don't do tt btw), he still won't care. He doesn't like such huge parties/events. In fact, he abhors attending one. Esp if he is gna be the centre of attention. Every year, he tells me the same thing - "Don't buy me any presents don't plan anything for my bday. Don't waste your money." But every time he says tt, i turn a deaf ear on his words. I never listened. Cause to me, bdays are impt & i didn't want him to receive any less. Even if he didn't want a celebration.. I still went ahead to plan one for him. But 2 weeks before his 25th, i really thought long & hard abt whether or not to throw a big scale party for him & invite all his friends where he can enjoy himself & his friends can take a break from work too. Then i told myself, "No. This year, i'm gna listen to him. Maybe not entirely but i will just throw a small celebration for him & a few of his closest friends." & So i did.
& On his actual bday, i planned a really simple & relaxing day for us both. & For the first time in 4 years, he said "This is the best bday i've had. I like these kind of bday celebrations. Simple & relaxing." Of course it took me lots of courage to plan a downscale bday party cause i'm all abt big big parties! Hahaha. But the fact tt he enjoyed it, it's all tt matters (:
I was supposed to meet R & go out for lunch first. So when he finally arrived, i told him to come up to my house. & When he did, i stuck a post it note on the door. He has to follow the post it notes which i stuck all over the estate tt wld lead him to his destination where his friends & i will be awaiting him w a wide spread of food (:
Then it was off to Ina Spa for some relaxing time & spa treatment! R was stoked cause his shoulders has been aching. Well, i was too of course. I needed a massage badly too.
For 2 pax, i paid $60 for a 60min full body massage & 15min detox scrub. & An extra $10 top up for couple room. I bought this deal on Groupon. Groupon really helps u save money! Lest it wld have cost me $169++ for 2 pax! I did my research before deciding to purchase on Groupon. Groupon has several spa treatment deals at a more affordable cost. So why not right?
Very clean place & extremely cosy. We were pretty taken back by their great hospitality & awesome service. Totally not what we expected. We will def be returning customers. Their masseuse are good! Very on the point & delivers what u request of them.
